Oh, Cabernet, why must you be so delicioso?


So I had been planning on writing an entry this evening, but then I casually suggested opening a bottle of wine to my husband, who wholeheartedly agreed and then we drank lots and lots of wine and now I’m pretty drunk. No, not DRUUUNK, but definitely feeling warm and happy. I also know I’m tipsy because I am sitting here with my iPod earphones blasting “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys into my ears. Hell yes. When I hit the sauce, I always find it necessary to blast music for hours on end, just to dissect chord progressions, lyrics, etc. I adore all kinds of music. Seriously, words can’t express. However, now that I have the good ol’ ball-and-chain around, blasting music isn’t very welcomed in the household, but HEY, that’s what my little earphones are for. Earphones rock. Well, I guess they rock unless you are earphone-less and trying to enjoy the silence (as Depeche Mode would say) and are in the immediate vicinity of someone who DOES have earphones on and they are belting out some harmonies completely out of tune. That’s not so enjoyable. But, hey! Not the case here! Don’t forget, I ROCKED the Ponderosa in Hamilton, Montana.

So, here I am, jamming out at my desk on a Thursday night. Good times. Gorillabuns, where are you when I need you most!

Jesus, I’m already losing my direction here. My whole point of writing this was to ask you guys something. What is your all-time favorite song? Ok, Ok, I know that can be a tough question…I have about 50. So how about this, what is your favorite song right now?



  1. bishOp stu tu says:

    whOOrl gOOrl…

    yes..you DEFinitely rOcked Montanny…!!!

    and as they say in the musac bizness…

    you chOpped their heads off. but, you already knew that.

    “dogs run free, why don’t we? bd

    yo bishOp

  2. At this very moment, I am humming “Just a Gigolo” by Louis Prima. Now talk about a song that makes you want to sing and dance! Of course I am 56.

  3. Do not judge me…

    Mmmbop by Hanson
    A Little Respect by Erasure

  4. one of (because, like you, i have many) favorite songs is Into the Mystic by Van Morrison.

    P.S. You are funny when you are tipsy. ;)

  5. By the way, my fave song right now and always is ‘Grace’ by Jeff Buckley. Whhhhyyyyy did he have to die so young?

  6. oh ms sizzle we have the same favorite song….

    Into the Mystic – a song never skipped on my ipod.

    as far as recent music, I can’t get enough of Kanye West’s Golddigger.

  7. SO hard!! For all time, maybe Dirty Blvd by Lou Reed…or Hawkmoon, by U2…or Angel from Montgomery, by Bonnie Raitt. Right now? Outta Control, by 50 Cent.

  8. Right now: Another Travellin’ Song by Bright Eyes.

    All time (one of, you know me): Tangled Up in Blue by Bob Dylan.

    Loving the red wine-induced late night post!

  9. “Push the little daisies and watch em come up”. By Ween. Ha!

  10. Yes, it’s a crying shame when the truly talented people of the musical world pass on! Why indeed.

    And even though she’s not D E A D, I have to say that I will also miss Suzie and was really hoping INXS would choose her and not be narcissistic, gender-centric farts after all. It would have totally ROCKED to have her or more preferrably, Jordis front them. I think now it’s either going to be Mr. JD Brownnose or the ever-popular-completely-safe-but-very-bland MiG. Bleh. Go Marty Go.

    Oh yeah, right now I’m digging Radiohead There There, the Stones Can You Hear Me Knockin and Neil Finn Wherever You Are.

    Happy NFL weekend #2! :O)

  12. Thanks a lot lini.

    I had ALL KINDS of song-thoughts coming into this. (Of course, sadly most were by Raffi or The Wiggles. If you don’t know them, look them up . . . you know, Hot Potato Hot Potato, or Everything Grows…)

    Then I saw lini’s Just A Gigilo comment, and now THAT song is stuck in my head. Technically I guess I have to say that.


  13. “They” by Jem…
    or “Hide and Seek” by Imogen Heap
    or “Fix You” by Coldplay
    …i’m not good at following rules. ;)

  14. man…i was on a rode trip this weekend to and from the far corners of hell when i pulled out a cd a la whoorl girl circa 2001. it brought back great memories of drinking red wine and listening to great music. of course, anything jeff buckley is my favorite…everlong-the foo’s……kate bush-this women’s work (remember the maxwell rendition?) too many to list….

  15. “Clocks” Coldplay
    “Into the Mystic” Van Morrison – damn whoever wrote it before me
    “Brown Eyed Girl” Van Morrison – But ONLY when it comes on spontaneously and takes you by surprise in the car or when you’re painting a room or something and you blast it and sing at the top of your lungs.

    I love your blog. You’re being added to my list of favorites.
