Three songs! Listen or die!

Day 23 - A song that you want to play at your wedding

This'll be the song Lydia and I'll dance to last, just before leaving. I love this song, it's the hottest song I know, mainly due to the amazing husky vocals and the throbbing bass, and the lyrics are so so so good.

There's no use to complain
Or start it off again
There's no sign of weakness in me
Do I compel you like you compel me?
And nothing stays the same
And no one said it would
I would not think of such things if I could...
If I could help myself,
If I could

So put your warm little hands where I can see them
Put those hands on my face
Tell me you love me
And no one else
Or close those little hands
Now they're fists
Now they're little fists

Punch a hole in me with those fists
If you ever wanted to punch a hole in me
And find out what's in me
There's really nothing in me

And nothing stays the same
And nothing ever happens to you that will happen to you again
Or is this the way it was?
Was it this same room, this same fight, this same scene?
With us dancing on the kitchen floor
And the wind climbing in through the open window

I used to hear distant cracks out in the city night
I could swear some one was being shot down
Now we hear that all the time...

So do you like where we're headed?
Does it make sense in your eyes?
Do you miss me, baby, when I fall asleep?
Do you reach out for my arm?
Do you find it's too far away?
Do you?

Now tell me I'm handsome
I will tell you we are really not old at all
There's no use to complain

Still you and no one else

So put your warm little hands where I can see them
Put those hands on my face
Now if you get any out of this
Then that's the thing that makes me sleep all day
And I'll explain my love for you
On another day

Day 24 - A song that you want to play at your funeral

This is such a strong song. It's by Wolves in the Throne Room, and this is one of 5 songs I'll play at my funeral. Every year I make an update to what songs should be played at my death, this is so important to me. My music tells me and all of you who I am, who I was, and who I could've been. This song has both the sad, funereal guitar lines in the beginning and the agressive lust for life at the end. Essential to understanding me.

Day 25 - A song that makes you laugh

I love Weird Al, I love this song. Period. All his polkas rip me up as well.
