CUT YOUR HAIR!

Not that anyone remembers, but I made a post about this song I was trying to find without luck. The odd thing, I was just thinking about this song again last week and how I was pretty sure I’ll encounter it again someday. I’m mildly psychic about irrelevant things. I should start up a 1-800 line about giving out psychic readings for irrelevant life events. I think you’ll find that missing sock within the next three weeks! Anyway, I was thinking “someday” as in, maybe a in a few years I’ll find this song. I definitely was not thinking DAYS. 

I decided to start watching the Netflix series “Friends from College.” Boom, first episode the opening song is THE ONE I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND FOREVER BUT COULDN’T REMEMBER ANY LYRICS! Without further adieu, the song is “Cut your Hair” by Pavement. Which doesn’t have anything to do with an anchorman or weatherman, like I had previously blogged about. I must be thinking of another song from my college days? Regardless, I am just thrilled I finally found this song.

I NEED TO BUY MY YOUNGER SELF A DOORS GREATEST HITS ALBUM…

I’ve had a song stuck in my head and I can’t remember any of the lyrics to it at all. All I seem to recall is the chorus where the alt-rock band sings, “ooh ooh ah ohh ohh ohh.” I recall listening to this song on my iPod on college. I seem to think either the song name or lyrics had something to do with a weatherman or an anchorman. But Google search is no help. I even found a site where you can hum a song, but the results were null. I also tried a lyrics site using the search terms anchorman and weatherman. No hits in the forecast either.

Confession time, I don’t usually clean the songs out of my iTunes library. So the songs there, I’ve accrued since I got my very first iPod. It was a pink iPod mini, and I loved it so! Still the only Apple product I don’t despise. ANYWAY, I tried to search my iTunes library, and I got nothing. It’s possible the iPod it was on died, or the song was lost between several computer changes/restores since my college days.

But all hope was not yet lost. I keep all my CD’s in a giant binder, this includes about 20 mix CD’s I’ve created over my high school and college days. Consider it my early 2000’s homage to the mix tape. Not only this, I also kept the index card with the songs listed on them! Wow, my younger self was so organized, and a music-hoarder. My mix CD search didn’t yield any results.

All I learned, was I probably should have bought myself a Doors greatest hits album. Most of my mix CD’s seem to have at least one Doors song. I had no idea I liked The Doors that much. I forgot to try my Amazon music library, and the few odd folders of songs on the drive of my computer that I may have forgotten to link to my iTunes library. All hope isn’t totally lost yet, but trying to find a song without lyrics is rather impossible. Especially when you’re sure the song wasn’t really a big radio hit, and you can’t remember the band name at all.

SHIMMY, SHIMMY, COCO PUFF!

I don’t know how anyone can ever get sick of seeing NKOTB. Erin and I had an absolute blast at the show! Seeing Nelly brought back so many high school memories. We were really blown away by TLC’s set. They had a tribute to Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes and said they would never replace her. It was a very touching tribute, and everyone lit up their phones, it was amazing!

Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?! haha! I took a million photos, but I gave myself only 5 minutes to create collages and deal with my selections. I think that is the best way for me to do it, snap decisions!

I really want the holographic overalls T-Boz and Chilli wore, they were pretty snazzy. I’m so glad they toured with NKOTB, it was a great chance to finally see them in concert.

As luck would have it, our part of floor section was right near where the New Kids enter and exit the stage. I tried to get video, but they were wearing boxing robes with hoods, so it was hard to see. The bouncers blocked the entrance of our row so we wouldn’t run up and touch them. DAMMIT! But hey, Donnie totally gave me a high five at the other concert I was at, so I can live with it. PLUS my friend and I met Jordan Knight years ago.

There was loads of confetti and fireworks, which is fine with me. Erin and I had to pick a bunch of confetti from our hair and pockets after the show.

One of my favorite parts of the concert was when Donnie had his son Elijah play drums during one of their songs. He did a fantastic job. Clearly inherited his dad’s musical talent. Speaking of inheriting musical talent, Joey Mac brought his son up on stage to sing. IT WAS THE MOST ADORABLE THING I’VE EVER SEEN! Then Donnie sang a song to his mom Alma, that was in the audience. She cried. Then he made out with Jenny (cue yucky face!). Oh man, it was such a fantastic show. I can’t wait to see them again.
