…or, “how I’m avoiding housework this afternoon”.
(I totally ripped this off from myself. I put this up on my other, sorely neglected blog, Vacuity back in January of ’09. I’m just having that kind of day. Scroll all the way to the end for playlist.)
1.) Spanish Guitar: Los Lobos w/ Antonio Banderas
Yeah – when he smacked that guy with the guitar and then picked the hairs off?
2.) Mahalia Jackson: Walk in Jerusalem
Divine Sisters of the Ya Ya Sisterhood Soundtrack
(Only playlist.com didn’t have it, so you get this one -which I love almost equally.)
Mahalia Jackson: Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho
3.) The English Beat: Mirror in the Bathroom
Grosse Point Blank Soundtrack
Know what I don’t like about this movie, or this soundtrack?
Not a damn thing.
4.) Nick Lowe: The Beast in Me
Back in the beginning…when EVERYONE watched it.
5.) Meow Mix Commercial
(Call it a “palate cleanser”, because…)
6.) Johnny Cash: The Beast in Me
(Because I like this version way better.)
7.) Matt Damon: My Funny Valentine
The Talented Mr. Ripley Soundtrack
Was this a creepy damn movie or what? Creepy, but really good. It was a toss up between
this or “Tu vo fa l’Americano”. I flipped a coin.
8.) Elvis Costello and the Attractions: Everyday I Write the Book
The Wedding Singer Soundtrack
“BECAUSE I HAVE THE MICROPHONE, SO YOU WILL LISTEN TO EVERY DAMN WORD I HAVE TO SAY!!!”
9.) Oompa Loompas: Oompa Loompa Song
Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Soundtrack
These are just good words to live by.
