10 things....part 1

10 songs that remind me of other things......
      aka I listen to this song and it reminds me of my friend or a certain time in my life

  1. Take it Off by Ke$ha ------my friend Chelsea. One day at work last spring Chelsea found this song on and was obsessed. We went through a solid week or so singing the lyrics to each other and dancing in our office chairs. Now that the song is played on the radio all the time, every time I hear it I think of her. It's nice because she's hundreds of miles away in North Carolina and I never see her anymore :(
  2. I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry --------Michael Phelps...summer of '08, Olympics. Everyone laughs when I tell them this but it's true, whenever I hear the words "taste of her cherry chap stick" I see Michael Phelps in his cute little butt crack pants. It reminds me of being in the hospital and watching the 2008 summer Olympics from my uncomfortable hospital bed.
  3. Any 'N sync song -------my cousin Hannah and my childhood. Growing up in the 90's meant the peak of boy band fever and 'N sync was my favorite. There was Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, Boyz II Men, Westlife, O-Town. My cousin Hannah and I were OBSESSED with 'N sync, new all the lyrics, had all the CD's, magazine posters, playing cards. You name it we had it. T-shirts! Soundtrack of my childhood.
  4. Oh, It is Love by Hellogoodbye ------Disney World. I listened to this song on the plane to Florida during the summer of '07 when my dance company performed at one of the Disney Parks. Whenever I hear it I automatically think hot end of summer Florida, Disney Magic, and an amazing trip with my mom and all my dance girls :)
  5. Something Pretty by Patrick Park ------The O.C. This song played on the show when Seth got on the coffee cart to declare his love for Summer. Love Patrick Park. Love the OC, Love this song.
  6. Hair from the musical Hair -----my dad. My dad used to always sing the "long beautiful hair, shining, gleaming" part of the song to me when I was a little girl. I asked him after I first saw the movie version of Hair whether he knew the song was from the musical and he said he didn't. I was able to see the musical Hair on Broadway and it's now one of my all time favorite musicals. The lyrics, the message and the fun, but this song will always remind me of my dad.
  7. Everytime We Touch by Cascada ------my friend Sam. Everytime this song comes on my friend Sam and I bust out our hand motions. We usually crank this song up in the car so we can't move our whole bodies. Both of us know all the words and definitely belt it out (usually why we crank it up so high). Who wouldn't want to dance to this song?
  8. Stronger by Kanye West ------Senior Year of High School. This was my graduating class' song, it was played at all the pep rallies throughout the year and was BIG! We even had the words harder, faster, stronger on the back of our homecoming shirts that year. Woot Woot Class of 2008 representing TC West.
  9. Candy Shop by 50 cent ------Nichole Marsh! Whenever I hear this song it takes me back to the year I had this long break between dance classes every week. During the break three or four of us girls would work on homework.....or just goof off the whole time. We'd always compare songs on our iPods and listen to each other's music. Most of the time we'd take over the kitchen and just dance around the whole time. Nichole and I would always listen to Candy Shop and she'd get on my back and "fly" around LOL.
  10. All for One from High School Musical 2 -----my friend Lizzie. Lizzie and I are neighbors and she drove me to school almost everyday my senior year of High School :) Most days we'd have to crank up the music in order to wake up before class. We'd listen to classic rock, pop and the occasional Hannah Montana/ Miley Cyrus CD. The best CD was  High School Musical 2 (my favorite HSM movie). We'd sing along and pretend to play the drums every time this certain part came up in the All for One song.


  1. Hahahaha! I miss playing the drums while attempting to drive! We should do a HSM marathon over Christmas break.
