Scott Joplin: The Entertainer. Don’t get too excited, I think I only know the first seven notes or something. I took piano for a few years, but was never very good

The Specials: Stupid Marriage. What’s not to love about this song? From the opening lines form Judge Roughneck to the warp-speed sing a long ending, this is hilarious. I suppose a song about the trail of a violent ex-boyfriend with a serious jealous streak shouldn’t be funny, but come on.

Flogging Molly: If I Ever Leave This World Alive. I have already planned to have this one I love the message behind this song. Whatever is waiting for me on the other side, I like the idea that whoever is left behind can take what I have given and build on it. I like the idea that I can “take on all the sadness that I’ve left behind.”

U2 All I Want is You: Already had my wedding, nearly twenty years ago actually. This song was played right before the ceremony. My best man sang it for us and was completely awesome. It was a great day and having this song play just moments before my beautiful wife walked down the aisle was just one of the perfect moments that I will remember forever.

REM Everybody Hurts: Kind of a no brainer here isn’t it? This is the sort of song that I imagine people actually slit their wrists to. I doesn’t quite bring me to that level, but it can definitely darken up the wrong day.

Blink 182: What’s My Age Again. For some reason this song always seems to end up on the iPod on good days. It has that great sing-along flavor and some pretty funny biting lyrics. “This state looks down on sodomy.” Classic.

Kid Rock Cocky: This one is easy. There is something that just screams out about this song. It has to be played loud and it’s just the right might mix of bravado on 10 and profanity to make anger flow. The first time I heard this song I was in the middle of some daily battles on line to get my site really going and found the message to be humorous in a WWE way.

The Clash: Clash City Rockers. All right, I should have looked ahead before choosing Complete Control as yesterday’s selection. That too comes from the Clash’s self-titled debut album which just happens to be my favorite. My taste in music changed the first time I heard this album. It was fast, furious, angry and completely incomprehensible.

The Clash: Complete Control. OK so no one would listen to a song that played the Clash (Other than Should I Stay, London Calling or Train in Vain) but I would love it. This was always one of my favorite Clash songs. For a real laugh, check out Youtube for “misheard lyrics” for this and other Clash songs.

Eminem & Rihanna: Love the Way You Lie. This song is on the radio and on my TV all the time thanks to the shoes “Damages” promos. I happen to the like the song a lot, but it has never really sounded much like a radio hit.

Celebration: Kool & the Gang. To be honest, I don’t know if I ever loved this song, but this category kicked my ass. My musical tastes are varied and rarely hate something once I’ve loved it. If nothing else, I find a nostalgia that allows me to love the things I used to love about a song. However, this fucking piece shit drive me insane.

Counting Crows: Mr. Jones This one wasn’t that hard at all. To me it’s about dreams, fame, self and spirituality. It is about seeking out our place in the world and always wanting more “When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely.
