I think I love you. [hearts]

On that same note, Bryan Adams has a song that induces a similar reaction in me. The lyrics are something like, "... but that would change if she ever found out about you and I." [Mad] It's about you and me! You have to use the object pronoun after a preposition!

Granted, it would cease to rhyme with whatever the previous line was, if he cleaned up the grammar. But it's not that hard to find a rhyme for "me".

Oh, and in case you didn't realize it already, anything by Bryan Adams would count as a bullet for me.

Mr Adams I do believe. The song is called "run to you". (Just so you can avoid it)

Betcha never heard Lee Marvin's rendition of "I was born under a wand'rin' star" . It'll curl the little hairs in yer nose and elsewhere *then* it'll curdle yer brain. [Eek!]

--------------------
I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Sorry,

That link appears to be a Windows only clickthrough,

Paste

mms://wm.sony-local.global.speedera.net.staging.speedera.net/wm.sony-local.global/w/william_shatner/common_people_med.wma

into your browser...

Oh yeah, Windows Media Player required too (available free from MS site if you don't have it...)

I love that, but I've been enamoured with Joe Jackson since "Beat Crazy". Ben Folds ain't nothing to sneeze at either. [thumbsup]

My bullet would be anything by Madonna. *shudders*

Anything by Britney, or the folks she hangs out with.

Check out this slamming group, though. That might hit the spot. [Smile]

There was a sort of dance album created by the sisters (or was it an Eldritch solo project). It had all the drums removed from the final mix and was designed to be so hard to listen to that they would be released from their record contract. Apparantly it is fairly easy to get hold of on these new fangled P2P thingys.

I'm a bit of a sisters of mercy fan myself.

marilyn manson?
anastacia... I can't stand her.. really, I can't stand hearing her voice... I think she has success because she makes people think "wow, with a voice like /that/ she made it to the radio? i could be a pop star too!"
and.. uh.. christina aguilera. but who can stand her anyway?

My bullet would definitely be "3 am" by Matchbox 20. The lead singer has a really annoying voice in the first place, but something about that song just strikes me as being particularly bad.

That and REO Speedwagon...ugh.

Your choice, I actually like her and have no problems with the way her voice sounds.

My bullet would be definitely be:
Techno music

This is about the only musical genre I am unable to listen to at any time for more than 10 seconds.

yeah, I seem to remember him mentioning something like that when I went to see them a couple of years ago, I think it was a sisters project but only Eldritch really did any work on it.

Now you're all starting to upset me. [Wink]

Rush is AWESOME. Geddy Lee rules.
Marilyn Manson is great!
Matchbox 20 is quite good.
Techno music is perfect for listening to whilst coding.

I haven't heard anything about that, but Andrew Eldritch is pretty infamous for releasing a hastily produced album under the name of "the Sisterhood" just to prevent his former bandmates from using the name. Spiteful bugger.

As for my bullet, it's got to be Living Colour's "Cult of Personality". I loath that song, and, despite being old, it still gets constant airplay. WTF? Can't they play the good old stuff sometime?

My bullet would be, "Let the Eagle Soar" by that politician guy in the states, John Ashcroft. I had it in my head, along with my migraine the other day. And... it's really wrecked seeing eagles flying around here. [cry baby]

Gee, Nitro, you reminded me of that crappy Lee Greenwood song about being "Proud to be an American". That song is so stupid it makes me sick. (What's Lee Greenwood singing about being proud to be an American anyway? He's Canadian isn't he? [Confused] )

Another one is that stupid "Wind Beneath My Wings" song. [Mad]

Everytime I hear a Celine "ferrit face" Dion song, I have the urge to blow my brains out.
