Porn Camp...Day 2

Today was comprised of a lazy morning, tater tots, a Wawa run, a stop at Church's Chicken for a box of boobs-n-thighs, and (of course) the SOUL GAME!

Our Soul lost (dammit) in like the last 10 seconds of the game *angry sigh* and I can't quite figure out all the rules, but we had a blast. We ran into some other Jovi Girls in the parking lot, and had a good time catching up, eating and drinking together, and engaging in Porn Libs.

What are 'Porn Libs'? you ask?

You know "Mad Libs"?  Well, when you get a bunch of fan fic writers together they turn into Porn Libs.  One of the ones we wound up with had a song entitled "Fuck around the Clock".

Of course, I had to re-write the Bill Haley classic. Apologies in advance.
One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock, fuck
Five, six, seven o'clock, eight o'clock, fuck
Nine, ten, eleven o'clock, twelve o'clock, fuck
We're gonna fuck around the clock tonight.

Put your cock ring on and join me, hon,
We'll have some fun when the clock strikes one,
We're gonna fuck around the clock tonight,
We're gonna fuck, fuck, fuck, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna fuck, gonna fuck, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes two, three and four,
You will eat me out, you dirty whore,
We're gonna fuck around the clock tonight,
We're gonna fuck, fuck, fuck, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna fuck, gonna fuck, around the clock tonight.

When the chimes ring five, six and seven,
I may let you cum and to go heaven.
We're gonna fuck around the clock tonight,
We're gonna fuck, fuck, fuck, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna fuck, gonna fuck, around the clock tonight.

When it's eight, nine, ten, eleven too,
I'll be kneeling down and blowing you.
We're gonna fuck around the clock tonight,
We're gonna fuck, fuck, fuck, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna fuck, gonna fuck, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes twelve, we'll cool off then,
Start a fuckin' round the clock again.
We're gonna fuck around the clock tonight,
We're gonna fuck, fuck, fuck, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna fuck, gonna fuck, around the clock tonight.
As Porn Camp weekend comes to a close *sniff* we're Skyping with Kiwi, getting ready for Porn Camp Crafts, and writing a short biscuit about Jon and Angry Birds.

Oh, and there's wine.

Always wine.

~ Hath

Porn Camp's Night #1 of the East Coast Chapter of JPM officially renamed Porn Camp
Follow us on Twitter if you want to join in the fun. Slightly obnoxious, wholly juvenile and totally giggle worthy. We do have TONS of fun when we get within the same air space.

I wish we could get ALL the girls together, but we definitely take what we can get.

  • oars durves
  • ice cream
  • wine
  • porny mad libs
  • porn talk
  • twitter frenzy
  • mini golf
  • wine
  • table full of laptops
  • jammies
  • NO bras
  • pillow fights
husbands wish!

I'm comin', I'm comin'...

... I just left Penn Station in En-Why-See and FINALLY got my seat to myself so I could get the old LT out -- can't write porn with an audience.

Well, unless it's MAH GIRLS!

Wils, I'm on the way, and will call your darling daughter when I arrive in Philly. Then I will smother you with hugs (dear ones, not queer ones) when I see you, and shower love on your puppy and bunny (that is NOT dirty, people).

I have have this date circled in purple marker on my calendar for WEEKS! I've been SO looking forward to getting away for a few days with the Northeast Chapter of the JPM.

And while I won't have any of the wine (ewww) I will have a 'rita or two (or orange juice, lol) and wait most impatiently for Catte, Queenie and TaraLeigh to arrive.

Then, well, nobody's safe.

Well crap, it took way longer to type this paltry post than I thought -- we're now entering beautiful, scenic downtown Newark New Jersey.  I love a train crew with a sense of humor.

~ Hath

I'll be there, too!!

I know, I know... it seems silly to say that I'll be at my own apartment for FF weekend with Hath, Catte, Queenie and TaraLeigh BUT there is a madness behind my method. 

You see, I am in the process of moving to Brooklyn to be closer to my new job and, at the moment, I have been commuting 5 hours a day to and from home. It's taking the life outta me and making for a seriously cranky Wils. So, when I say that I will be there too, it's because I will be home, in my house, which is in all sorts of disarray... but I will be there with 4 of the most awesome women I know.

We will finally crack open the $50 of Carmenère that I got as a birthday gift from a very good friend. It's called "Purple Angel" which has serious significance (but only a very few know why). It's been sitting on my counter taunting me for over a month now and I'll seriously ready to see the bottom of that bottle.

So, hell yes, there will be drinking.....

drunken texts and skype calls.

I'm sure there will be oot-bay-egg-lays


There will even be some serious Jovi/Soul tailgating

and Mayhem has been invited and has RSVPed.

The toilet gummies are in place and the animals are waiting to greet you all. It's gonna be an unforgettable weekend!! What is it that our favorite frontman always says? "So get your YouTubes ready folks....." PSYCHE! No way there will be video of this.... lol.

On A Steel Horse I...okay it's a Santa Fe

But yes its that time again! The FF's are taking over fair Willow's house. Wine and hikinks....hehe hijinks but man that was too good to delete. Lmao! Will be afoot as Queeie said. Drunk tweets, fbs, and a probable drunk skype w our Kiwi princess is only part of the fun.

The rest includes getting away from family and responsibilities and remembering that it's more than Jovi that keeps us together. 

Looking forward to the insanity! Okay and the wine.


Here We Go Again!!

Yep, it’s road trip time, almost.  Hath is leaving on her train tonight and the rest of us are descending upon New Jersey tomorrow.  Catte, Queenie, TaraLeigh and Hath are heading to Willow’s for the Soul game this weekend.

Sure hope New Jersey can handle all of us being there at the same time.

Stay tuned.  Hijinks and havoc are sure to run amok in Jersey/Philly this weekend.

Watch out for drunk dialers and texters too.  You never know what could happen when these girls get together.

Are you ready for some football?!

Day 30

A Song You'd Dedicate to a Friend:  (To Whom and Why?)

Hath: Unbreakable -- Bon Jovi

I thought hard about this one. I could have gone with "You Are The Sunshine of my Life", for my son, who truly is.  I could have waffled between "Hit The Road Jack" and "Be My Baby" for Mr. Hath, depending on the day.  I could have gone with "Wind Beneath My Wings" for my parents, who taught me to do more with less, and to always do it with love.

But no, I went with this song, dedicated to all my girlfriends.

Collectively, we have survived feasts and famines. Our houses have blown up, our marriages dissolved, our livelihoods taken away, our countries literally shaken to their very foundations, and our families hit with unspeakable tragedies, yet still we are here.

We have lived through all this and come out the other side because we are strong.

"I Am Woman" first came to mind as an anthem of sisterhood to dedicate to my girls, but largely, we have survived and surpassed these things on our own. Yes, we have had the support of our own sisters (in numbers too great to ignore), but WE chose to bend, not break. WE chose to pick up, dust off, and move on. WE chose to celebrate what we have, not what we lost. WE are Unbreakable.

I love you, girls!

Wils: That's What Friends Are For - Dionne Warwick and Friends

Hath, as usual you hit this one on the head. Where would I be without my girlfriends? From wine in parking lots to late night talks to concerts to lunch dates (over the phone) and so much more, you girls have no idea how much you mean to me. You've guided me through the darkest times, lifting me up and encouraging me and been there to celebrate in good times as well. We may not see each other everyday, but everyday you are in my thoughts and there are simply not enough words or days in my life to tell you all how much I love you.

Catte:  With a Little Help From My Friends

For my Danny.  He knows why.

Queenie: I'll Be There For You - The Rembrants

This was a hard one.  Wils picked my first choice and I used my second choice way back on Day 5.  So, I went with the theme from Friends (arguably the BEST sitcom only able to be seen in re-runs and on DVD), not the Bon Jovi version (not that I don't love their version, but this one fit the category much better). A much happier, bouncier I'll Be There for you and the lyrics really say it all...

For my girlfriends, old and new, I'll be there for you and I know you'll be there for me too...

Tara: Standing (Jovi bside)
Well, Hath said it better than I ever could. What a lovely post darlin'!
This is the song that I listen to when I need a little push. I think it fits all of us. And honestly, just looking at what all of us have had to deal with at one time or suits ALL the women in my life. And since Jovi has brought be some of the most amazing women in my life, it's only right they get to be the last song on this challenge. Sometimes we bend and almost break. But in the end we are always the ones standing.

Kiwi: This One's for the Girls - Martina McBride
Agreed---Hath you really said it all. I know in my life personally, the last six months would have been unbearable without my girlfriends, I have some very special people in my life and I'm only still standing because of them.

Day 29

A Song From Your Childhood:

Hath: Delta Dawn - Tanya Tucker and Abracadabra - Steve Miller Band

Sorry, I had to pick two.

Delta Dawn is the first song I remember knowing all the words to. I loved it when this song came on the (AM) radio in the kitchen or in the powder-blue Dodge Dart.

Abracadabra is the very first song I ever recorded on my Sanyo AM/FM Radio/Casette player. I still have the orange-labeled cassette around somewhere...

Looks under the banana clips, Jordache bags, Swatch watches, plastic bangle bracelets, Jovi-worthy purple tiger-print spandex and slouchy socks for the cassette...

Catte:  The Mississippi Squirrel Revival - Ray Stevens

My Dad thought Ray Stevens was the funniest man on the planet.  I think he still does.  I remember him playing his Ray Stevens eight-track over and over and over....

But I gotta admit, this song is REALLY funny.  Still.

Queenie: America - Neil Diamond (The Jazz Singer Soundtrack)

This cassette was played every weekend while we cleaned the house. It was a favorite of my parents. I think I can still sing every word...

Wils: Age of Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In - The 5th Dimension

When I was a (very) little girl, around 3-4, we lived in Japan. I was very young and some of my very first memories are from this time. I remember than every Sunday we listened to a radio show on Armed Forces Radio, the host was Rabbi Ira Youdovin and he started the show every week with this song. I understand he lives in the Chicago area now and wouldn't know me, but he has a place in my very earliest memories.

 Tara : Suspicious Minds (Hawaii)
Oh my GOD, Queenie. LOL That was my mom's FAVE song. She'd BLAST it while she was doing the vacuuming. So loud that Eric and I would run outside laughing at her. LOL

One of the first songs I remember was Elvis. LOL He's been my answer for a few of these now! LOL
The Hawaii show was played quite a bit in my house. From movies to concerts and all the things in between, Elvis dominated in my house.

Day 28

A Song that Makes You Feel Guilty:

Hath: Cat's in the Cradle -- Harry Chapin

I've said "I'm too busy" when my son wants to play. I've said "later, we'll do it later" when he asks to watch a movie snuggled up with me. I've said "Not right now" when he's asked me to read to him. I hate that I can't devote every moment to him. I'm worried that he's going to remember "Mama was too busy to play when I was a kid." Make time for your kids/loved ones.

Wils: Baby Girl - Sugarland

I don't really do guilt, so this is a hard one for me. This is my song with my daughter (and also Brown Eyed Girl) and, while I believe I've always TRIED to do my best with her, I'm sure there are times when I've not told her I love her enough. But the fact is, I love her "more than anything in the world".

Catte:  Nada
I got nothin' for this one.  I don't listen to music to feel guilty, and I honestly can't remember EVER feeling guilty listening to any music or lyrics.  I know there have been a number of social issue songs out there (Man in the Mirror, Land of Confusion, Luka, American Skin (41 Shots), Bullet ), but they just don't make me feel guilty.  They may make me think, but not feel guilty.

Then you have all the "supergroup" singles to raise awareness of global tragedy or natural disaster.  This trend started back in 1984 with Sir Bob Geldof when he formed BandAid, the British/Irish SuperGroup-for-a-Day to record Do They Know It's Christmas? for charitable relief for famine-stricken Ethiopia.  Being all of 16 I remember thinking "what a cool idea" and "oh, those poor Ethiopians" for about a second, then being very VERY excited to hear Simon LeBon sing right after Bono and before Sting.  Then of course the U.S. had to jump on the Band-Wagon (pun intended) and do USA for Africa.  Then came the concerts - Live Aid, Farm Aid, Live Earth, et al.

The trend continues to this day, only now it seems that big-shot Rock Stars can't really be bothered to all get together and write an original song every time there is an earth-shaking catastrophe (and granted, there have been a LOT lately).  So they instead donate their songs to these All-Star Albums For (Insert city/country/region here).  Now don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking these efforts in any way, shape, or form.  Any way celebrities can use their spotlight to help those in need, I'm fine with.  Even if it's convincing us to use a couple of our iTunes gift cards to download some music so a few dollars will go to the Red Cross.  But I just have a hard time feeling guilty when I'm listening to that music.  Fortunate, sure.  Grateful for what I have, absolutely. But I just can't muster guilt.

So I guess I'll just go with the GrandDaddy of them all, the song that really brought a fleeting moment of social awareness to kids my age when I was a 1980's teeny-bopper.  Maybe I should feel guilty for not feeling guilty.

Tara: Angel - Sarah McLachlan
I used to love this song beyond explanation. This was the song that I would long for at a Sarah show. Then the ASPCA took it and ruined it forever. LOL I can withstand pretty much anything on tv, except an animal in distress. HOLY CRAP, these commercials make me want to hand over my bank account to animals in need.
So, that's about as guilty as I get.

Day 27

A Song you Wish You Could Play on an Instrument:

Catte:  Dry County - Bon Jovi

Oh, that I had the talent to play Richie's solo....

Hath: Anything on the guitar -- Anything

I really wish I could play guitar. It's not that I haven't tried, I just have absolutely no musical talent whatsoever (Classical Gas aside). I'd love to be able to play Satriani, Hendrix, EVH, Slash, Sambora -- any of it. All of it.

Queenie: Netherworld Waltz - David Bryan

I love piano music.  Absolutely adore it.  If I had three wishes, they'd be that I could play the piano as well as Mr. David Bryan, Mr. Harry Connick, Jr., Mr. Billy Joel and Mr. Elton John. That's how much I LOVE the piano...

If I could play, I'd play this... it's just beautiful.

Wils: Wanted Dead of Alive - Bon Jovi

The most famous guitar rift out there... and I wish I could play it.

Tara: Never Say Goodbye (Acoustic)
Dang, Wils! That's my SONG!! LOL You done stole my song! I think I've always been a guitarist in my head. Well, that and the lead singer. I am an Aries after all. LOL But the guitar just draws me in. My damn fingers are too small to play. *pout* That and I have no musical ability. But I'd fairly kill to be able to play any song on Acoustic Guitar. My 2nd choice would be Never Say Goodbye.

Day 26

A Song You Can Play on an Instrument:

Catte:  Walk This Way - Aerosmith

Yep, I can play the intro riff on the guitar. *smirks*  Maybe someday I'll learn the rest.
(Side Note:  I Love Jonny's Mad Hatter Top Hat in this vid, LOL)

Hath: Classical Gas -- Mason Williams

The only song I can play on anything. My brother taught me to play this on the piano when I was 14 (he was 12). It sounds way better on guitar.

Queenie: Fur Elise - Beethoven

I cannot play an instrument. I don't have the patience. I lasted three weeks with the clarinet before nearly throwing it out the window. But my grandma taught me to play this. I can't anymore, but once upon a time, I could.

Kiwi : Baker Street - Gerr Rafferty 
Possibly one of the most famous sax riffs around and there once was a time I was a mean machine on the sax,  I performed this song for my sixth form end of year music exam LOL.

Wils: Feelin Stonger Every Day - Chicago

When I was in high school, the marching band marched "military style" which means that everything was done in "squads" and therefore if one person was absent the whole show was thrown off. Consiquently, there had to be people who could step into any spot and march in any persons spot holding (playing) any intrument. My senior year I gave up my drummers position to be an "alternate". This was one of the songs we did that year and since I did it will at least 7-8 different instruments, I say "technically" this is a song I can play on any instrument... LOL.

Tara: Love From Afar...ears only. LOL
Nope, Tara has NO musical talent. Just ask anyone that's known me from birth to current. NOPE, NADA, NOTHING. LOL

Day 25

A Song That Makes You Laugh:

Catte:  Squirrels In My Pants (S.I.M.P)

*Snicker, snort*  Need I say more?

Hath: We're Not Gonna Take It -- Twisted Sister

Dee Snyder. C'mon. He's awesome. His makeup always makes me giggle. He looks like one scary-ass dude. And Catte, thanks... now that song is stuck in my head.

Queenie: The Hanukkah Song - Adam Sandler

I am not an Adam Sandler fan, but this song just cracks me up, especially when sung by one curly haired keyboard player... just look at the faces and the antics of his bandmates... how can you not be laughing?

Kiwi: Jizz in my pants - The lonely island
Cracks me up every single time and it's a mutual friend of Tara and I's FAVOURITE songs ever. It will forever remind me of Cari and it's JUST so damn funny and clever.

Wils: OMG! Shoes!

'Nuff Said. If you know me, you know this is MY SONG!

Tara: Love For Sale (uncut)
The original version of Love For Sale (uncut) is by far the quickest laugh for me. There's tons of great songs over the years from tons of different bands, but the end of this song I sing over every other live or acoustic.

I wanna go to one of those countries that you can have seven wives.
Imagine what I can make 'em do to each other?
Naughty Jonny and Richie all over this one.
Can you imagine how drunk they are? LOL

Ooohhhh, I gotta go home.
You gotta go home to your woman?
Yeaaaaaaah, I gotta go home.
Just lets say...lets say that the record is done.

Day 24

A Song You Want Played at Your Funeral:

Catte:  My Way - Sinatra et al

The perfect tribute to a life well-lived.

Hath: Highway to Hell -- AC/DC

Oh c'mon, you know damned well where I'm going…. No, seriously, I don't want any "Adagio for Strings" (no disrespect to Barber) or "Amazing Grace" or any of that weepy shit. There will be no crying. There will be no wearing black (unless it's a LBD with CFMs, then you're okay)


You weep, and I'm sitting up right there in the funeral parlor to yell at you, and you know that will freak you the F out. You are *going* to celebrate my life. You are *going* to do so by singing along and picture me tooling down the highway in a cherry-red Mustang convertible with the top down, the wind blowing through my hair, and this song POUNDING out on the speakers as I head on down to warmer climes.

Kiwi - With a little help from my friends - Joe Cocker
Because I wouldn't have lived a life as full without them.

Wils: The Song of Purple Summer - Duncan Sheik (from the musical "Spring Awakening)

It's a song full of promise in the face of sadness. I want my life to be celebrated and any who mourn to remember that I lived my life to it's fullist.

Queenie: Seasons of Love - The Musical "Rent"

I thought long and hard about this one. Green Day's Time of Your Life came to mind, as did the Beatles' In My Life. But I finally decided on this one. How do you measure a year in the life? Measure with love...

Tara: My Way - Elvis Vers.
I tried to find another song since Cate took mine. LOL I found a few that almost fit, but nothing can compare to My Way. I grew up on Elvis. I've loved him all my life. Even the bands that I've loved since have been influenced by this man. So, he gets my last song. No matter what happened to Elvis he never lost his voice. I hope that when I go out, there's ONE thing people can always say about me that's just as amazing.

Day 23

A Song You Want to Play (or Wish You Had Played) at Your Wedding:

Catte:  You Had Me From Hello - Bon Jovi

Well, it wasn't around when I got married 20 years ago, but in my mind this is the perfect love song. *sigh*

Hath: No Changes -- Got it right the first time…

Our wedding was a mix of songs from the 50's - 80's (Jovi inclued), and was really fun. I don't think I would have changed any of the music to be honest with you. Mr. Hath and I danced our first dance to "Be My Baby" (Ronnettes) and Daddy and I danced to "If I Can Dream" (Elvis) because it's his favorite song.

PS, Jon, you should TOTALLY consider an Elvis-cover record. We'll buy it. I swear we will.

Queenie: Love of My Life - Jim Brickman featuring Michael W. Smith

When I got married (Almost 21 years ago) there was no Bed of Roses, Always or Thank You for Loving Me. Mr. Q and I danced to Just You and I (Eddie Rabbitt & Crystal Gayle). I think if this song had been around back then, it would have been perfect.

Kiwi - In These Arms - Bon Jovi
Oh God--don't get me started. I have a wedding soundtrack all ready to go, I reallllllllllly hope the guy I am going to marry doesn't have this heart set on a song because tough luck buddy. LOL But this is definitely one I would have to have played...

Wils: Sorry guys, I'll have to take a pass on this one. Two weddings, two divorces, not the best source for this topic.

Tara: Love Me Tender
Grrr. I put mine in here, but it didn't show up.
I haven't really been close to the big M word, but I'd like to think that this song pretty much covers what I see in the big commitment.

Day 22

A Song You Listen To When You're Sad:

Hath: Flight of the Bumblebee -- Rimsky-Korskakov

When I'm sad, I wanna be snapped out of it; I don't wanna dwell on it.

For me, "Flight of the Bumblebee" does it. This song reminds me of watching "Bee Movie" with my son. After seeing the film, whenever he saw a bee trapped in the house or flying around too close to us outside, we couldn't swat at it because it was "just a pollen jock, Mama. he's just doing his job." Makes me smile every time. Can't be sad when thinking about my Hathlet. He's just too freaking adorable (yeah, I'm biased a bit). That, and he'll (randomly, for no reason) start trotting around the house/yard singing, "BUZZ buzz buzz buzz BUZZ buzz buzz buzz" lol Yep, wicked hard to stay sad with your lil guy making bee noises.

Queenie: Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

Yes, I picked a Bon Jovi song, finally! LOL
When I'm feeling down this one picks me up, the optimism in this song always makes me feel better... (I even picked the original video... it makes me smile every time I see it!)

Kiwi: Acoustic #3 - The Goo Goo Dolls
This song always mellows me out, I need to mellow, weep do my thing when I'm down and I generally pick myself up after that and this song puts me right in the zone.

Wils: Lift - The Josh Nelson Project

Here's one of those "things" not many people know about me... I love to listen to Contemporary Jewish Music (CJM). It's been a part of my life since my teen years and it touches me in a place that I don't access all that often. This past summer I had the fortune to meet and hear Josh Nelson and his music is amazing, original and uplifting. The drums and rhythm of this particular song has the ability to pull me out of a sad mood in a very unique way. This is not your parents "religious music".

No video, but I encourage you to listen here:

Tara: Kiss Me When I'm Down
Oh...I like to embrace my sad sometimes.
And one man that can really rip my guts out is Gary Allan.
He knows how to rip your heart out with a lyric. The man himself has experienced a lot of loss and this song reminds me so much of a particular point in my life that I did a lot of stupid things with an ex. Sometimes you just want that warm body even tho you know it's bad for you.

Catte: My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms

Misery likes company--I like the way that sounds...
This song is so raw and emotional it always soothes me when I'm down.  It doesn't matter why I'm sad.. it just somehow seems to understand.  And though the vocals are fantastic, it's more Richie's mournful guitar that speaks to me.

Day 21

A Song You Listen to When You're Happy:

Catte:  Don't Leave Me Tonight - John Bongiovi

Puppy Jonny Music + Happy Catte.  Pretty Simple.  : )

Wils: Stand Up - Sugarland

Such a wonderfully uplifting song, how can I help but not be happy listening to it :)

PS: I love Catte's choice too....

Hath: Closer to Fine -- Indigo Girls

I've always loved this song. It makes me smile when I hear it.

The best thing you've ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously, it's only life after all

Don't sweat the small stuff.

It's only life after all.

Queenie: Wake Me Up Before You Go Go - Wham!

I know, this probably should have gone under guilty pleasure or the song I listen to when I'm sad, but it's here in this category. It's a fun song and really, how can you not laugh at George Michael in those ridiculously short shorts?

Kiwi - Faster - Matt Nathanson
This song is only new but I totally LOVE it and I LOVE listening to it when I'm happy... it's so catchy and has all the usual MN hooks that make a song utterly delicious. The uh uh uh's are catchy.. I dare you not to sing them randomly after you've listened ;)

Tara: Put You In A Song
That's what I get for being late. Kiwi stole my song!! LOL I'm utterly obsessed with Faster. LOL
Okay...what else do I listen to when I'm happy....

I think it's going to have to be Keith Urban lately. Especially this song. I do love that this man is so in love. He writes such GREAT songs.

Day 20

A Song You Listen To When You're Angry:

Catte:  Slither - Velvet Revolver

When I'm pissed off I want to hear one thing:  LOUD GUITARS.   And nothing soothes my boiling blood like a little Slash.  (Well, he makes my blood boil in other ways, heh heh.)  It's not always this one, but this is one of my favorites.  Plus I love to yelp out the little "HEY!"s.

Wils: TOTALLY FUCKED - from the musical "Spring Awakening"

I have seen alot of Broadway shows, I love live theatre as much as I love live music. This is close to the top of my top 5 all time favorites. Led in the original cast by the most amazing Jonathan Groff, it's my go-to song for when I'm pissed and need a new perspective. What's life if you can't just admit that there are times that you are TOTALLY FUCKED? blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Hath: Head like a Hole -- Nine Inch Nails

It's loud.

You can crank it until your ears bleed.

And if it isn't loud enough, you can scream along with it.

And plot revenge.

Bow down before the one you serve
You're gonna get what you deserve

Yeah... Watch out.

Queenie: Straight Out Of Line - Godsmack

If this song doesn't drum the mad out of you, looking at Sully should at least make you drool through it...

Tara: I Stand Alone - Godsmack
DANG!! GGMTA, Queenie!! LOL I LOVE Godsmack for LOUD and GROWLY music.
This song and the video---yeah.
That'll do.
I have a special place in my heart for Sully AND The Rock. ;) Both = Kickass!

Kiwi : The Clash - I fought the law.
UGH I had already done this and it didn't show up. LOL here it is now. LOUD.

Day 19

A Song From Your Favorite Album:

Catte:  Little Bit of Soul - Keep the Faith - Bon Jovi

It's a close, close contest, but Keep the Faith is my favorite album EVER.  It's the one that has it all for me:  rockin' songs, dancin' songs, love songs, jammin' songs.  No matter my mood, I can put KTF on and find what I need.  And this is my favorite track -- in fact, I love it so much I named my DOG after it.  Yep, her AKC registered name is "RockStar Little Bit O'Soul" aka "Jovi."  She's a rockin' PuppyDog, LOL.

Wils: Killer Queen - Queen

By far one of the very best rock albums out there. Freddy Mercury was an amazing talent.

Hath: Blood on Blood -- Bon Jovi (New Jersey)

I'm not sure what I can say about this. NJ is my favorite album of all time. ALL time. And this song of brotherhood, friendship is just the bomb. Shit did I just say "the bomb"? From the intro all the way through… Just a fantastic song.

Queenie: Never Alone - Ultimate Love Songs, Jim Brickman featuring Lady Antebellum

I know, I know, I should have picked a Bon Jovi album, but I don't have just one favorite.  Besides, I'm a romantic sap at heart so I leaned on my second favorite keyboard player for this choice.

Tara : Bon Jovi - It's Hard Letting You Go (These Days Album)
Dang...I promised myself this thing wouldn't be all about Jovi, but c'mon.
FAVE album?
It's soooo These Days.
Here's the current version of it that they dragged out for this tour. I was a MESS when I heard it.

Kiwi: Bruce Springsteen, Come on Let's Go Tonight. (The Promise)

I LOVE this album, seriously is on my playlist at least one a day. The entire album is full of just gorgeous songs and I ADORE this song...*sigh*  As cliche it is, this album came to me in the exact right moment of my life. :)

Day 18

A Song You WISH You Heard on the Radio:

Catte:  Love Amnesia - Soraia

Okay, I don't hear it on the radio because it hasn't been released yet.  But hopefully my favorite Awesome-Chick-Fronted-Rock-Band will break BIG with this song.  *fingers crossed*

Queenie: Marry Me - Train

Very first time I heard this was on my cable music channel, Palladia. Train was doing a SoundStage special and they pulled this one out. Pat Monahan said it was a fan favorite. I hope they release it as a single and I get to hear it on my radio. It's just a beautiful, beautiful song.

Wils: Rosie - Richie Sambora

Let's face it, we just never get to hear our favorite sexy axe-man's solo work on the radio, and that is just a crime. There are so many songs I could have chosen here, but I picked this one because I find that when it comes on the Jovipod, I always turn it up and sing!

Hath: Stranger in this Town -- Richie Sambora

Fortunately, with the iPod, I can listen to practically anything I want to, any time I want to. The music is out there -- you just have to find it. Plus, when I listen to the radio, it's typically satelilte, and the 80's station or classic rock or Hair Nation. HN does play Richie once in a while -- I guess I'd have to go with this song because it's just one of my personal favorites of his, and would LOVE to hear it on the radio. For some reason, when a station plays a song I love, I feel almost instant loyalty to the DJ/station, and feel overJOYED that they played something "for meeeeee!" lol. Yeah... my choice is Stranger (with or without Sleep Alone, though I love that song when he does it, too).

Tara:I Am - Bon Jovi

*sigh* I'm going to use a Jovi tune. Sad, I
But when HAND came out there was one song that I coudln't stop playing. It often made me wonder if it should have been a radio hit. Maybe it would have been if given half the chance. A lot of the public thinks there's only two KINDS of Jovi songs. Boombastic rockers or ballads. They don't know about these gems that are always my faves.

Day 17

A Song You Hear Often on the Radio:

Catte:  Shake Me - Cinderella

I listen to HairNation on Sirius almost every day, and almost every day I hear this song, sometimes a twice or three times.  Good thing I like Cinderella.

Wils: Born In The USA - Bruce Springsteen

I love this song, but it's not what people think it's about. But if it means hearing Springsteen on the radio more, that is ok by me.

Queenie: I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

Every morning at 5:45 my this song comes across my radio waves.  I think the station I listen to has a standard playlist for that hour of the morning or something... I can't seem to escape it and to be honest, I'm getting a little tired of it.

Hath: Forget You -- Cee Lo Green

My son listens to a local radio station when we're in the car. Otherwise, I've got the iPod going. I gave up on commercial radio years ago. This song actually has an "original" version, in which the chorus is "fuck you" not "forget you". Needless to say, this radio station plays the "clean" version lol It's on ALL THE TIME. Not only that, if you're stupid unfortunate enough to take your kid to kid karaoke night, you will hear this a minimum of 37 times.

Day 16

A Song You Used to Love But Now Hate:

Catte: Who Says You Can't Go Home - Bon Jovi

Sorry Boys, but it's just NOT Alright anymore.  I really did like this song once upon a time.  Honest, I did.  But you've killed it for me.  Permanent "skip" in the iPod rotation and time for me to reload camera batteries/check Tweets during concerts.  *sigh*

Queenie: Who Says You Can't Go Home - Bon Jovi

Dammit Catte you took mine, but I'm using it anyway. Way overplayed on the radio and in concert. Catte's right, it's not Alright anymore...

And what is with this video with the guy dressed like a dog?  I don't get it...

Wils: Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Judy Garland

I've just heard too many "divas" think they can out-sing Judy Garland on this one and that has just ruined this song for me.

Hath: Who Says -- Bon Jovi
Who Says is a good one Catte & Q -- I think I have to go with that, though I don't hate it, I'm just REALLY tired of it. I can't think of a song that I used to like but don't anymore. My musical tastes haven't really changed that much -- if I like something I like it. Maybe I'll think on it some more, but I dont' think I'll come up with anything :)

Kiwi - I'm tellin you - Jennifer Hudson
I loved this when I first saw it, and thought the emotion just poured out of this song in general, but now it grates on my every nerve. LOL Too many people have tried to do it and sound awful, and all I hear is screaming now and drives me CRAZY

Day 15

A Song That Describes You:

Hath: I'm a Bitch -- Meredith Brooks

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover, I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint, I do not feel ashamed
I'm your health, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way...

I'm a bitch, I'm a tease, I'm a goddess on my knees
when you hurt, when you suffer, I'm your angel undercover
I've been numbed, I'm revived
can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way

Catte:  Bitch - Meredith Brooks

Ditto, Hath! :)  I'm a little bit of everything, all rolled into one.....

Wils: I Wanna Talk About Me - Toby Keith

Ok, first of all I have to say that this was my SECOND choice, but when I logged into Blogger to post "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks and saw that both Hath and Cate had chosen it, I laughed, chatted with Cate about it (who said "Well if the BITCH fits... LMAO!" - SO TRUE) I decided I also like Toby and I'm just narcissistic enough to admit that it really is ME!!

Queenie: She's Not Just a Pretty Face - Shania Twain

So, after a lot of thought this is the song I chose. I was going to use I'm a Bitch, but Catte and Hath beat me to it (and it only fits me one week out of the month... LOL).

As women and mothers, we wear a lot of hats so I figure this song fits not just me, but all of us.

Tara: Little Victories - Matt Nathanson

I think this is the post I hemmed and hawwed about the most. Most of the songs I love are about relationships. It took awhile, but I think this really suits me.

Kiwi: Lost Highway - Bon Jovi 
This was hard but I decided I'd use the song that describes me now, I could easily use a mushy mush song about wanting a soulmate and someone to lurve ...but I decided to use this song which fits my life and me right now. I've been to hell and back in the last six months twice but now I'm finally in a position that I feel like I'm finding my way again, what's important, where I want to go in my life, and I just want to get out there and well drive.... ;) 
FYI Tara my FAV Matt N song.

Day 14

A Song That No One Would Expect You To Love:

Hath: Flashback - Ministry

Somehow, this surprises people. I apparently don't seem like a "shit down his neck" kinda girl. This is TOTALLY a driving song. I listened to this driving home from NYC after the Central Park Jovi show -- I was up most of the night with mah girls (and a busted out knee) then had to get up early drive 4.5 hours home so I could make a Bingo obligation at 10. This song made the miles FLY by. I'll admit it, The Land of Rape and Honey is up there in my list of records I'd take with me to Mars. (no power on a desert island; I assume the folks on Mars can power my mp3 player).

Catte:  Wannabe - The Spice Girls

Yeah, yeah, this one could go under the "Guilty Pleasure" heading too.  Hey, I'm not ashamed to admit I LIKE the Spice Girls!  They Kick Ass!  And at least one of them did okay for herself post-shameless-PopStar-era, LOL

Wils: Bad Romance - Lady GaGa

It's all my daughter's fault, but there is something about Lady G that I really like. Maybe it's that she's the Madonna of 2011.

Tara:Teenage Dream - Katy Perry
I do love Katy. I can't help it. At all.

Queenie: Dragula - Rob Zombie

Yep, really.  I like Rob Zombie... this song in particular.  The first time I heard it, I was hooked.

Catte, the Spice Girls, really? Should I mention that one year for Halloween I was Scary Spice?

Kiwi: Katy Perry - California Girls 
Tara STOLE mine, lol so I'll choose another from Katy---something about her, these songs are so damn catchy and fun and SO not my usual type of music!

Day 13

A Song That's Your Guilty Pleasure:

Hath: Asereje - Las Ketchup

There are so many guilty pleasures... Livin' la Vida Loca... Anything by Wham! (lol) but this one is just so utterly ridiculous, I almost hate to post it. But as long as I am, I may as well tell you I know the little dance too.

*groan* *headdesk*

Catte:  After the Rain - Nelson

*hangs head in shame*  Yeah, yeah, I know.... The video is completely ridiculous but I looooooooooove this song. I sing along at the top of my lungs every time it comes on HairNation or my iPod.  (At least Tara's not laughing at me.)

Wils: And We Danced - The Hooters

Many good choices here - love Hath's choice! But The Hooters is just one of those bands that make me wanna shake my (considerable) ass!

Tara: Lose Yourself - Eminem
Cate stole my guilty pleasure. I'll admit...Nelson is one of mine too. LOL (Not like I could deny it, she already threw me under the bus.) So, I'll have to go with Eminem. Talk about a change of pace! I don't love what he stands for, the stupid shit that comes out of his mouth, or his less than stellar relations with women...but I love this song.

Queenie: Ready to Take a Chance Again - Barry Manilow

Hello, my name is Queenie and I'm a Fanilow...
Yep, I love the man and I blame my mother. I love Elvis too and that is also her fault. What can I say, she introduced me to some good stuff and it stuck with me. She does not, however, get my love affair with Bon Jovi. But I forgive her. She is my mother after all.

Day 12

A Song From a Band You Hate:

Hath: Touch of Grey - The Grateful Dead

Yep, hate The Dead. Sorry. Can't really explain why. The music is just "eh" and the lyrical content was clearly influenced by illegal substances (lol). I just never got it.

Catte:  Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

I loathe Pink Floyd.  Yes, even Another Brick in the Wall.  Pretty much anything by this band makes me want to beat myself (or someone else) over the head with a baseball bat.  Of course my Hub loves Pink Floyd.  Batter up, Honey.....

Queenie: Tom Sawyer - Rush

I know I'm probably going to get slammed for this, but I just can't stand Rush. My husband loves them, but please, don't make me listen, I beg you.

Tara, can I borrow those sharp instruments to stab out my ears, please?

Wils: My Name Is - Eminem

I just don't get it. Or him. 'nuf said.

Tara: Lithium - Nirvana
I don't know if I hate them because they were the beginning of the end of my favorite style of music, or for the awful fashion they brought with them from Seattle. But UGH, UGH, UGH, on Nirvana. Blech.

Day 11

A Song From Your Favorite Band:

Hath: Nightinggale -- Yanni

PSYCH!   lol

C'mon, you've gotta be shitting me. I have to pick just ONE? Well, I went with NSG for Day 1 so I can't pick that. Gotta go with Blood on Blood. Or Little bit of Soul. Or Blame it on the Love of Rock-n-Roll. Or This Ain't a Love Song. Or... Or... Or...

No, I've got it. A specific song from a specific show from my favorite band. "Any Other Day" from the O2 on the LH tour. When our Richie came back to us. Most favorite performance of a song live EVER. EVER. Look who just got back...

Catte: In These Arms - Bon Jovi

Witty commentary..... I got Nothin'.  Except to say that I LOVE this song, and I love the video even more.  Jon's little Elvis lip-curl near the end.  Richie's Rose Jeans and long, lush RockStar hair.  Jonny crawling on the floor to that lucky, LUCKY girl beckoning him in.  And Sweet LORD, those black and white floral pants.  GAH!

Kiwi: You Can Sleep When I Dream Bon Jovi
Well OBVIOUSLY I would have picked Living in Sin, but I've used that so I thought I'd pick my next favourite.... that damn box-set---and it was hard to choose as I have a very close top ten on that thing but this song always makes me smile and it's so damn good. :) I nearly picked Last Chance Train *growl*.

Queenie: Last Man Standing - Bon Jovi

So today we had to pick a song from our favorite band. Do you realize how hard it is to pick just one?! It was a tough choice. Eeny, meeny, miney moe was never more difficult. LOL

I chose Last Man Standing... it's my favorite track from the Have a Nice Day album.

Wils: Runaway;
Like the other girls, it's impossible to pick just one... I mean, really. So I've chosen to go back to where it all began... April 20, 1984, American Bandstand. I was sitting in my parents living room and Dick Clark introduced this "new band that sounded like they're name is from France" and then David started playing that all familiar beginning and Jon turned around in those gold pants and ripped shirt and I was D*O*N*E.

Tara: These Arms Are Open All Night 
(Box Set Vers. Live at The Borgata)
I'll have to agree on the HOLY CRAP ONE? But I'll go with one of the most gut wrenching performances I've seen from him. This one little video at The Borgata and Jon was as wrecked as I was by the end of the song. Just WOW.

Day 10

A Song that Makes You Fall Asleep:

Hath: Puff the Magic Dragon - Peter, Paul, and Mary (shut up)

Any lullabye-ish song will do it for me, but for some reason, the tale of little Jackie Paper sends me to snoozy-town. It gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling and the music is sooo soothing. As is Mommy's voice -- one of the best out there. RIP Mary Travers.

Catte:  Kissed by an Angel - David Bryan

Well, it doesn't exactly MAKE me fall asleep, but it certainly gives me sweet dreams.  I love, love LOVE David's solo album.  It's been my daughter's goodnight music ever since she was a wee Baby Cattelet.  *sigh* Just beautiful and sweet and soothing.

Tara: Bastille Day - John Tesh
I sleep to all sorts of music. There was a time that I COULDN'T sleep unless there was some sort of music around me. Around that time I used to have a lot of sleepovers with a college girlfriend because we were in every class together and we both drove into schoool - That and she wanted my mom for her very own. LOL. Well...she couldn't stand noise when she slept, but THIS album she could deal with. It's STILL a Pavlovian response. I hear this and I want to snuggle in bed. LOL

Queenie: Timeless - Jim Brickman

My other favorite keys player... Jim Brickman.  He is just amazing. I can't say this puts me to sleep, but it relaxes me so I can fall asleep.

Kiwi: Lullaby - Billy Joel
I love this guy---and I adore this song and totally is a bedtime song and a little sad lol.

Wils: Netherworld Waltz - David Bryan

I love listening to David's piano music, especially after I've had a particularly stressful day and I need to turn off my brain. The entire collection is wonderful and relaxing, but Netherworld Waltz is one of my favorites.

PS: Can I just say that I created my list without consulting Catte or looking at anyone else's choices. DAMMIT CATTE! Just cause you post faster it makes me look like a copycatte.... lol.

Day 9

A Song You Can Dance To: 

Catte:  I've Been Working Too Hard
This song was MADE for Twistin'.  It's The Jukes, for cryin' out loud!  Best damned bar-band music EVER.  And it doesn't hurt when Southside's got a Pretty Guest Guitar Player onstage, either.  ROWR. :)

Hath: Pump It -- Black Eyed Peas

Anything from the Peas actually.

Love da Peas. LOVE 'em.

Tara: Runaround Sue
I'm going even more old school.
*blush* We used to go out dancing and to watch Tony Hastings at this little bar. He sang covers of old songs and this one always got us up on the floor.

Queenie: Rock This Town - Stray Cats

How can this one not make you want to dance? I practically danced down the aisles of my grocery store last week when it played over the speakers...

Kiwi: Footlose - Kenny Loggins
Always a favourite. 

Wils: Love Amnesia - Soraia
Especially when I get to dance with Cate! Bumpin hips and twistin away, but watch out, cause if we get too close to the floor, it's kinda hard to get back up again... oy!

Day 8

A Song That You Know All the Words To:

Hath: The Gambler - Kenny Rogers

Well, it's no fair picking ANYTHING from the Jovi Catalog...that's just a given. But this song --- I LOVED this song when I was a kid. Still can't help singing it when it comes up on the 70's on 7 station on my Sirius XM Satellite Radio (lol).

And I adore The Muppet Show, so this is a bonus.  Besides, where else would you see muppets slugging whiskey and smoking?  Only in a post from Hath, that's where!

Catte: Paradise by the Dashboard Light - Meat Loaf
DUDE!  I LOVE this song!  Bat Out of Hell is perhaps the perfect Rock Album, IMO.  And this song is the most fun of the lot.  My buddy Danny and I even won a Karaoke Contest dueting to this a dozen or so years back.  I can sing every part and every harmony, but of course I WAIL on the Girl Part --  STOP RIGHT THERE!!!! I GOTTA KNOW RIGHT NOW....  I can even do the baseball play-by-play. :)

Kiwi- Two out of three ain't bad - Meatloaf
Yup another Meat song---one of my ALL time favourite songs ever and a popular drunken sing a long many a time to this one! 


Tara: The Tide Is High
This is one of those songs that I didn't even KNOW I knew the words to. Until I was singing it top volume in my car WITH the window rolled down in a traffic jam and a guy was right next to me---of course I was oblivious and he yells, "Sing it baby!" Mortification and the lyrics burned into memory--that's Blondie for ya.

Queenie: Rockstar - Nickelback

Yep, I'm an in-the-car-sing-along-with-the-radio kind of girl and I admit, I love this song and know each and every word...

Wils: Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
"Scaramouche, scaramouche, will you do the fandango?" I love this song and Freddy Mercury was just a musical genius! This is absolutely a turn it up in the car, sing it at the top of your lungs (in a bar with your best girlfriends) kinda song!!
