from I'm Having A Heart Attack to I'm So Afraid

Day 758, Session 132:
Thursday July 17th - Back and forth to the Gold Coast to drop off some abandoned items.

Last full song: I'm So Afraid by Fleetwood Mac
Progress: 2136-2150 of 6066
Total Songs Heard: 1668

All "I'm" songs today. So let's see if they apply:

I'm Having A Heart Attack - They Might Be Giants: When I was still living in Dayton I spent an entire day sitting on the couch having chest pains every time I took a breath. Since I'm still here, I'm pretty sure I was not having a heart attack.

I'm Having A Party - Jonathan Coulton: I can't think of the last time I actually had a party at home (like in the song.) We'll occasionally have some people over, but never enough to have a full fledged party. The last party I was involved with was the Wing Night flip cup tournament at The Playground. It actually went really well. Maybe I should have more parties.

I'm Just A Bill (x2) - Deluxx Folk Implosion & Jack Sheldon: I don't mean to tell you how to educate your kids (you know, if anyone reading this actually had kids) but you could do a lot worse than using Schoolhouse Rocks. I'm sure I learned about the process of how a bill becomes law in school, but I remember the process because of this song. (They should probably record a new version that mentions how the doesn't necessarily have to obey the new law. Hooray for presidential signing statements. Viva La Bush!)

I'm Looking Through You - The Wallflowers: I've often wondered what having the power of x-ray vision would be like. Would you constantly have to adjust the amount of x-rayness you're using? Sure seeing through that hot chick's t-shirt might be cool, but seeing through to her muscular-skeletal structure, not so much.

I'm Nice - Wally Pleasant: I struggle with this one. On one hand, I'm nicer than people who would generally be described as assholes. On hand the other, I'm always very aware that there are nicer people than me around. I wish I was nicer and have on occasion made efforts to be so. The problem lies in my sense of humor. Humorous words often escape my mouth before they've had a chance to run through the censor in my brain. Those words are not always nice, or at least they seem that way if you don't get the fact that I'm just being funny. So yeah, I wish I were nicer... or that other people were smarter so they could understand me better. Idiots.

(I'm Not In) Prison - The Jayhawks: I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today - Avenue Q: (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone - The Monkees: I'm On Fire - Bruce Springsteen: True. False. True. False.

I'm Only Sleeping - The Vines: Most of the time when I dream, I'm aware that it's a dream. If a dream starts to get uncomfortable, I will either take control of the situation or remind myself that I'm only sleeping. This has not prevented me from being crushed by killer robots in my dreams, but I believe it has kept that dream death from carrying over into real life.

I'm Outlived By That Thing? - Crash Test Dummies: I'm just going to assume Crash Test Dummies were watching Shark Week on the Discovery Channel when writing this song and therefore "That Thing" = Shark. Sharks have been the practically the same for 100 million years. Homo Sapiens have been around for about 250,000. Unless we manage to extinct them completely we'll be outlived by sharks.

I'm Sensitive - Jewel: As much as it pains me to admit it... I am sensitive. Seriously. I know I don't come off that way, but I'm probably half a step away from openly weeping right now. Oh shit! Here comes that Applebee's commercial again!

I'm So Afraid (x2) - Fleetwood Mac: I'm so afraid of posting this and revealing my terrible secret about the Applebee's commercial.
