Car Wreck and Day's 2-4

OK, so the reason for my slacking on days 2, 3 and 4 of this challenge was because on my way home from work on Monday I was in a car accident.

Some asshole ran a stop sign and hit me and then took off. I'm banged up, nothing broken, but my back, neck, knee, jaw and chest were all injured. The back is the worst of it. Have to do PT for a few weeks before they do an MRI to see how bad it is.

The jackass took off. Nailed my car and bolted. Who does that?! I was taken to the hospital by ambulance, my beautiful new care smashed to pieces. Not sure if it's totaled or not yet. I thought my bad luck with cars was over when I got a nice brand spanking new car, but apparently not.

So I've been knee deep in insurance red tape and police reports and mostly in bed on a heating pad and medicated. I hate the way they make me feel, but it stops the pain. So hopefully all will be OK soon and I will be back in the swing of my dysfunctional life.

So I will include the days of songs I am missing in this one post. You'll have to just deal with it.

Day 2: Your least favorite song.

Now there aren't too many songs that I loathe and despise per say, but there is a genre of music that too me just isn't music. It's that screaming into the microphone like you're having some sort of Satanic episode out of the Exorcist and you can't understand a word anyone is saying. To me that's not talent and how these idiots get famous is beyond me. I will find a random example


Day 3: A song that makes you happy

You know those songs that just put you in a good mood? Make you want to just rock out in your car and act like a complete asshole. Volume up as far as it could go. You hear it and instantly want to dance and act like an idiot.

I have 2 songs that make me giggle like that and instantly make me feel like I should be happy.

This first one, I am not sure if it's because he sounds like a chick and it's a total throw back to some sort of modern Andy Gibb-esque BeeGee's dance number, or even the band name. But it makes me smile.

You know you are watching this and doing the Night at The Roxbury head bob. Your secret is safe with me.

The other one that makes me happy goes back several years with some old friends I used to work with, including my old roommate. It's a remix and it is one of those songs that makes you want to party like it's summer every day.

You sooo want to party right now. Corona in hand, makes you want to move your dancin' feet.

Day 4: A song that makes you sad

Different songs make me sad for different reasons. There are ones I hear that make my heart break, especially recently. Others remind me of my dad who I miss more than anything, especially now with the shit-storm that my life is in.

Nights in White Satin makes me sad. I love it. My dad loved the Moody Blues and this song just makes me wish he was here. That he was around.

Please Remember by Leann Rimes would be what I would play in lieu of a father daughter dance if I were to ever get married. It kills me knowing my dad would never be around to give me away, never get to meet the man I would give my entire heart to, want to share my life with. I thought I was on my way there, that my life was falling into place and things were going to be perfect. I just don't know anymore.

I am even in tears as I write this listening to it.

And right now, broken hearted, there is a whole bunch of songs that I swear popular music is trying to emotional punch me in the face. I can't turn on the radio without hearing something. So many songs that are so full of heartache and longing.

Much like a line from one of my favorite movies, "Which came first, the music or the misery? Am I miserable because I listen to pop music, or do I listen to pop music because I'm miserable?"

Right now this song sums me up. There are so many more, but this is a good jumping off point.

And this one is hitting me harder and harder every day.


  1. Get better soon!! I hope they catch the asshole that hit you, you have great taste in music. Please Remember gets me all teary eyed too.

  2. High Fidelity is one of my favorite movies of all time, I can practically quote the entire thing beginning to end I've seen it so many times. Maybe you should put your music in autobiographical order too? Pick just the right "eff off" song for that jackass who hit you. Hope you're feeling better soon Apryl, karma will get that guy, no doubt about it.

  3. 1) I love the Scissor Sisters. They are so infectious.

    2) I'm seeing the Moody Blues in two weeks. They're my dad's favorite too.
