6.What is your motto?
I don’t want the world to see there are holes inside of me,

Patch me up and send me out and watch me fall back down,
Pick me up and dust me off and watch me falling down.
‘Holes’ (Liz Wyatt)
7.What do your friends think of you?
Confusion in her eyes that says it all.
She’s lost control.
And she’s clinging to the nearest passer by,
She’s lost control.
And she gave away the secrets of her past,
And said I’ve lost control again,
And a voice that told her when and where to act,
She said I’ve lost control again.
‘She’s Lost Control’ (Joy Division)
[Unfortunately this is probably spot on]

‘Sweet Jane’ (Cowboy Junkies from the Natural Born Killers soundtrack)

What will grow quickly, that you can’t make straight

12.What do you think of the person you like?
Got a good reason for taking the easy way out
Got a good reason for taking the easy way out now

It took me so long to find out, and I found out
‘Day Tripper’ (Beatles)
[Yeah s’about right]
13.What is your life story?
What kind of love have you got?
You should be home, but you’re not
A room full of noise and dangerous boys
Still makes you thirsty and hot
I heard about you and that man
There’s just one thing I don’t understand
You say he’s a liar and he put out
How come you still got his gun in your hand?
Victim of love , I see a broken heart
You got your stories to tell
Victim of love, it’s such an easy part
And you know how to play it so well
‘Victim of Love’ (The Eagles)
[Definately no comment]
14.What do you want to be when you grow up?
‘How Soon Is Now’ (The Smiths)
[Exactly, surely I’m either grown up or I’ll never grow up?]
15.What do you think of when you see the person you like?
I am all destiny, a trade, a grain of sand
I take the throat of innocence and leave decay
I stain the way for all to see
No fear, no voice, no reason
In god no guiding light
‘Gift of Flesh’ (Def Leppard)
16.What will you dance to at your wedding?
It’s a beautiful morning
The sky is black as ink
The city’s sleeping still
And soon they’ll wake up
To the stink

[Not really an issue]

Future lovers hide
Love inside their eyes
‘Future Lovers’ (Madonna)
[Nicely positive, reincarnation anyone?]

Its gonna be a glorious day.

3 thoughts on “Music Meme”
20.What is your biggest secret?
Who am I to be blue
Look at my family and fortune
Look at my friends and my house
‘Offer’ (Alanis Morissette)
[Not sure that this is even poetically relevant]
Actually, given some of the entries on your blog, I think that this is quite relevant for you, but I’m not sure I could put my reasons for thinking so into words that will mean the right thing when written down and there’s a horrible chance that if I try, it will come out way off kilter and horribly offensive. Come find me at some point and I’ll try to explain in spoken word instead.
Thing is Erfie I’m not sure that my feeling that I have no right to be sad counts as an answer to ‘What is your biggest secret?’
That’s not exactly what I had in mind… 🙂
