Where You At?

Monday - The Rest of the Day

Day 4, Session 3:
Location: At work and then on the way home from a long terrible Monday.
First song: 1000 Hours by Green Day
Last full song: Abandoning the Set List by Moxy Fruvous
Progress: 33-84 of 3962

We've finally reached the alphabet! The first song that starts with a letter? A Boozehound Named Barney from one of The Simpsons soundtracks.

Can I be a boozehound?
Not 'til you're fifteen.
I ran through all the songs that had years for titles. Here are my thoughts on those years:

1974 by Ryan Adams - I wasn't born yet. My parents weren't even married yet. The Flyers won the first of their two Stanley Cups though, so 1974 must have been a good year.
1979 by Smashing Pumpkins - I went to nursery school. Perhaps my oldest memory of all involves nursery school. We were sitting in the upstairs classroom passing the hilarious joke of the day back and forth. The joke? "Guess what?" "That's what!" It passed for hilarity back in the day.
83 by John Mayer - My younger sister was born in 1983. Technically both of my sisters are younger... so I guess my youngest sister was born 1983. This is also the last year a Philadelphia team won a title. We've reached the point where no one in my family believes this a coincidence anymore.
1989 by Clem Snide - My first "girlfriend" "broke up" with me in 1989. The quotes are there for a reason.

The other favorite note from this set of songs, the song A Conjunction of Drones Simulating the Way In Which Sufjan Stevens Has an Existential Crisis In the Great Godfrey Maze by Sufjan Stevens is only 19 seconds long. The title is so long and the song so short, that there is not time for the full title to scroll across the ipod screen.

hey hey hey- it is not my team that all the philadelphia teams have lost since I was born... seriously it's not. All of them have gotten there and just sucked it up big time in the end and how can I be blamed for 200 millionaires sucking big time.
