Twisted Mixtape Tuesday is a collection of musical genius hosted by Jen Kehl of My Skewed View and Kristi Campbell of Finding Ninee every Tuesday. Really! I’m not even kissing up by saying that… As busy as I’ve been, somehow I found time to be part of the cool group for one more week!
This week’s theme was no strings attached. Hmmmm… I’m sure that she didn’t mean Pinocchio. She certainly did not mean that horrible movie with Ashton Kutcher in it. Perhaps friends with benefits? Oh that’s a movie too, isn’t it?
Or maybe she was talking about one night stands… since I lost the original list I have no fricking idea. Let’s face it, I don’t have a no strings attached kind of personality. I’ve never been one to excel in the friends with benefits category. Not to mention I’m not a one night stand kind of gal. I must interject here that some of THE MOST HORRIBLE music in the world has been written about the subject. When I think of one night stands, I think of “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You” by Heart. I hate this song. I don’t know why. I just despise it. I dislike it so much that I won’t even share it on here. Like that Sugar Ray song with the halo hanging from the corner of his girlfriend’s four post bed… Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Or that stupid Pina Colada Escape song. Right now I think I need to find a trash can.
After searching for hours and only coming up with 1) things related to the two movies and little else and 2) watching way too many YouTube videos of SNL digital shorts and Lonely Island videos, I decided to do something different. Instead of songs about no strings attached/friends with benefits/one night stands let’s talk about some perhaps related subject matter… Follow my somewhat disturbing thought process as I share some songs that came to mind.
No strings makes me think of this from Larry the Cable Guy: How’d you get tickets to the Tampon 200? We pulled some strings…
Soooooooo…. then the second thing that came to mind was this, and I must say that the quote makes more sense than this song:
Maneater Hall and Oates
Then this one…
Cowboy Casanova Carrie Underwood
What about a song that is the possible aftermath of one’s cheating? Now this song is one that I like. And I sing to my children when they are mad at me. Go JT… you’re the man…
Cry Me A River Justin Timberlake
Speaking of songs I sing to my kids when they’re mad…
You Can’t Always Get What You Want The Rolling Stones
This song has nothing to do with anything here, but I wanted to hear it:
Getcha Back The Beach Boys
And I wanted to watch this video again since I was thinking about the 80s.
Last Friday Night Katy Perry
Are there songs you hate with a passion? Are there actually songs out there that are GOOD that have to do with the subject matter?
