Lucky 5! It’s Lucky 5! Hey, is your favorite number 5? Cause my favorite number is 5 baby. What’s your sign?
This week’s mix-tape is all about stalkers. Hope I’m not offending anyone out there. Eh. Whatever. Stalker songs are funny. Stalkers are not. We all know that right? And – you know, if you’ve ever been a stalker, well, sorry? If it’s the details you want, I’m pretty sure you should go over to Kristi’s blog and read her post, cause she tells funny stories, does silly drawrings and everything.
Welcome to Twisted Mix-Tape Tuesday. (I kinda hear that announcer from the Monster Truck Rally yelling,”Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!” when I think those words in my head.) This past week, I’ve given a lot of thought to how I would feel if I saw this really awesome post somewhere and couldn’t listen to all the amazing, mind-blowing songs. So, I’ve come up with a really great solution: Bookmark it, share it on facebook, tweet it, copy and paste the URL into an email, write it on your hand. You know, just some little ole’ thing to remind yourself? I love listening to music, and have loved every minute of hearing the songs you guys have shared. Keep it coming! And please! Don’t over-think it. Stick to the topic or create your own version of it, just play! Kristi over at Finding Ninee My Co-Hostess with the Mostess (like you’ve never heard that one) writes a great story and doesn’t follow the 5 song rule, cause rules are made to be broken, right? I only highlighted it just incase you were one of those people who can’t live without parameters. Just saying. Enough! Have fun and play yo’ tape!
Next weeks theme will be Summer Vacation or Summer Time or Vacation any of those versions will do me just fine. If you read my In My Mind I’ve Gone to Carolina post, you would know that the countdown is on to mine. So let’s get ready for the warm weather folks! Woo hoo! (Sorry if you live in the South you must think I’m crazy. We have this thing called W-I-N-T-E-R here, it lasts until June 1.)
And now, without further ado:
You’re a Stalker, You Know You’re a Stalker, I Know You’re a Stalker, The Jig is Up
OK this is a classic. Ironically as I was discussing this song with my sister, she mentioned to me that she had no idea the words I described, were the actual words of the song. I had to play it 500 times over and over until she heard it, it hasn’t escaped me that she may have just agreed under duress. This is typical for her, not the bending to my will part. The not knowing the lyrics. I know this is quite typical, but in her its “special.” If you have some wild lyrics to share, do tell.
This one is also a Classic (pretty much everything cool in this house is A Classic). AND It is awesomely frightening in a Children’s sort of way. Just to add a little perspective, this is the same band that sang Wooly Bully, and with Betty Boop? You can thank me later.
Come on, who doesn’t love a little Tony Orlando and Dawn (who I always thought was one person). I even taught the 7yo the words. That’s when it hit me. It’s a stalker song. I forgive you Tony. The actual video is attached, because everyone needs a reminder of why the 70’s were so smoooth. However I could not resist attaching a serious animation video at the bottom, I can’t tell if I love that video, or if it is crazy making?
OK so you can rail me for my love of Hall & Oates, but you know what. Genius. Really. Some of their lesser known songs are just as good as the top 40 ones. This was a classic; rocking the airwaves in 1981. Want to see why they were genius? Watch “Daryl’s House,” link to a video from the show below.
I have a sneaking suspicion this one will be on everyone’s list. Cause you know, when you think stalker songs…
As always, thanks for playing! And if you create your own post, I will link it up here! Brought to you by the awesomeness that is:
