Whoa-oh-oh-ohhh - on the radio!

4:47am
Love songs don't come easy for me
Words fail to rhyme, notes fall from key
So forgive this simple melody
I've grown to like this naivete
Words cannot say hearts complexities
So all I can do is sing

And so begins my foray into the land of soccer Mom central - the soft rock station! I think I just wrote my first love song! Whoo hoo! It's gonna be a full-fledged soft rock cheese-a-thon. I was driving this morning (half-asleep, of course), listening to the radio. After hearing all those "lite rock classics from the 70's to today", it came to me - a nice, happy little ditty. Dang, I'm goin' soft. I need somebody to treat me like crap or piss me off - STAT! Songs to write!

Anyway, I decided this morning that I really don't like the radio. I'm so indecisive, and I always get caught up going through each station like 10 times. (Same thing with the remote at home. I'm like a dude.) I always feel like I'm missing out on something better. Today though, I was too sleepy to channel surf - hence the soft rock station. I know I'm so lame, but I really do love the lite rock station. I think because I'm such a spaz, it's nice to just hear some nice relaxing little tunes every now and again. Here in town, there are 2 soft rock stations now - so I get crazy going back and forth trying to find the best jam. I heard that Christopher Cross song from 'Arthur' this morning and about lost it! I love that song, man. So anyway, because I'm bored, dangerously sleep-deprived, and in a love song writing mood, here are my top ten driving-soft-rock-classics! This is gonna be hard - I could easily do a top 100. (I'm like a walking juke box. I should rent myself out for parties.)

#10 - The words get in the way - Gloria Estefan
I don't know if that's what it's really called, but that is my favorite song to sing in the shower. Gloria is good for a soft-rock jam. She dominated back in the day.

#9 - Saving all my love - Whitney Houston
I love hitting that high note at the end. I'm sure the other passengers don't quite enjoy it as much.

#8 - A new day - Celine Dion
That song makes me cry every freaking time. Don't laugh. It really is a sweet song. It's about her little boy. I'm starting to get a little misty just thinking about it... Dang, I'm a sap.

#7 - When a man loves a woman - Michael Bolton
I've totally lost cool points.


#6 - Home - Michael Buble
I don't care what anyone says - MB is brilliant. I've seen him in concert twice, and both times I had to resist the urge to throw my unmentionables on stage. My goodness, I am a middle-aged soccer Mom.

#5 - Sister Golden Hair - America
Even if it's only for the 3 minute duration - you CANNOT listen to that song and be in a bad mood. I defy you.

#4 - Danny's Song - Loggins & Messina
I will ignore that Footloose and Highway to the Danger Zone mess since Kenny wrote this song. You're excused, Mr. Loggins.

#3 - Against All Odds - Phil Collins
If he wrote this for me, I would totally 'take a look at him now'. Good old Phil Collins - he's another one good for a soft rock jam. I feel like bustin out my Phil Collins Greatest Hits CD right now!

#2 - Tie: Gypsy - Fleetwood Mac
Whenever I hear this song, I am instantly 6 years old dancing in my Mom's heels. Boy, do I love Stevie.
Speaking of Stevie's that I love....
Knocks me off my feet - Stevie Wonder
I use to practice singing with this song when I was like 7 or 8. I still do, actually. (Come to think of it, not much has changed since then. I'm still even the same height. haha)

#1 - Anything by the Eagles.
Soft Rock stations were created specifically so that every American can master the entire Eagles discography. If I had to choose my fav, I guess it'd be a tie between 'Hotel California' and 'Best of my Love' - with a close second going to 'I can't tell you why', and in third, 'Peaceful Easy Feeling'. Dang those Eagles! While I'm finding my Best of the Eagles CD, you enjoy this clip!

Thanks, Big. ;)
