Emily's Mixed Tape  
I made a mixed tape for Emily today, all love songs.
Well, except I suppose for Let's Spend The Night Together and Why Don't We Do It In The Road?
They're sex songs I guess...

Whole Lotta Love could fit either category.
But otherwise pretty sappy stuff.

I did throw in Burning Love, which was actually the song that inspired me to make the tape in the first place.
To use a stupid internetism: Elvis Rawks.

I even used the advice from High Fidelity and made sure the songs went up and down in intensity...

Not Fire, Not Ice (Ben Harper)

There is not a river wide.
Not a mountain high.
And neither sin nor evil.
Could change how I feel inside.
Could change how I feel inside.

Not all the strength of the ocean.
Not all the heat from the sun, from the sun.
Now, others have tried, I just can't deny.
For me you are the one.
For me you are the one.

The true love is priceless.
For true love you pay a price.
But there's nothing can keep me from loving you.
Not fire, no not ice.
Not fire, no not ice.

Like a hero or a champion.
You are the best, you're the best.
Like religion or superstition.
With you I am blessed.
With you I am blessed.

Now the river may grow wider.
The mountain may reach past the sky.
And whether or not you feel the same.
My love shall never die.
My love shall never die.

The true love you give and take.
The true love is sacrifice.
But there's nothing can keep me from loving you.
Not fire, no not ice.
Not fire, no not ice.
Not fire, no not ice.

Does she have an LJ?
Jacobyak_boy on September 8th, 2003 06:02 am (UTC)
Nope, she doesn't ever use the internet.
Can't say she's worse off for it, right now she's reading a book.
Nerdgirlnerdgirl on September 8th, 2003 06:06 am (UTC)
I love reading. What does she read? *sorry to ask soo many questions about her.. Ijust like to get to know the significant others of friends*
Jacobyak_boy on September 8th, 2003 06:12 am (UTC)
Right now, she's reading Pandora by Anne Rice.
She also likes Terry Pratchett, kids novels (Harry Potter, Narnia, Series of Unfortunate Events), Tolkien, and lots more.
She reads a lot more than I do, and I'm a writer!
Nerdgirlnerdgirl on September 8th, 2003 06:16 am (UTC)
I love Narnia.. Can't stand Harry potter books.

I didn't even know you were a writer (even though it says it on your userinfo page). Anything published?

I have been published poetry wise a few times. I am working on a young adult novel currently.
Jacobyak_boy on September 8th, 2003 06:28 am (UTC)
Not published yet (well, not professionally).
I'm studying Professional Writing and Editing currently and working on my first novel (similar to Tom Holt- comic fantasy), various short stories, screenplays and assignments...

Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
Not that there's anything really that wrong with it, but I never really saw the point of mixing tapes and stuff like that in the first place. Maybe it's just because most soppy music makes me gag, and to sort through all the metal love songs would mean having to divide between the, "I love you," kind and the, "I love you, bitch," kind.
Of course, I can say about the same for most genres. I mean, what can beat the pop songs with lyrics that are effectively, "Fuck you now. Smell you later."

*ahem*

That said. I hope Emily likes it. ^_^

Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
Romance. That's the point. Chicks dig it.
Besides, it was fun.

Remember the song that went:
"I wanna sex you up"?
Who wrote that shit?
Robet Éivaayvah on September 9th, 2003 05:46 pm (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
I can't remember that song. All I know is that even Korn's "All Day I Dream About Sex" has more class than most pop songs. What genre's that "sex you up" one?

The thing is, I like to be different. Thus I am generally closed to suggestions when it comes to romance. I could use fancy lines, poetic verses, but I'd feel like I was cheating.

Of course, it's obvious I'm not having much luck on the romance scene at the moment.
Jacobyak_boy on September 9th, 2003 06:02 pm (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
Definitely pop. Boy-bandish, though no-one famous, I think.

Anyway, what's NOT classy about that Ben Harper song?
It is the very definition of a classy love song.
Robet Éivaayvah on September 10th, 2003 04:17 pm (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
Well, that Ben Harper song seems to mostly remind me of the "There's no mountain too high, no valley too deep, no ocean too wide to stop these men from delivering their mail." I know I have a 90% chance of that there being a huge misquote, but err... yeah

Just to quote a short, though slightly pessimistic, song by my favourite band:

"Fare thee well, little broken heart
Downcast eyes, lifetime loneliness

Whatever walks in my heart will walk alone

Constant longing for the perfect soul
Unwashed scenery forever gone

No love left in me
No eyes to see the heaven beside me
My time is yet to come
So I'll be forever yours"


Anyway, I don't really like Ben Harper's style in the first place, so I think that'd have to be a rather large factor.

Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
You don't have to like Ben Harper, my point is the ladies like Ben Harper. (I do like Ben Harper myself though, the CD belongs to me.)

Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
My sister's group of friends has vowed to brutally murder him. Do they count as exceptions then?
Jacobyak_boy on September 11th, 2003 08:04 pm (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
How old are they? 12? 27? 38?
Robet Éivaayvah on September 11th, 2003 09:36 pm (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
My sister is sixteen, and most of her friends are older than her.
Jacobyak_boy on September 11th, 2003 09:42 pm (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
And she listens to Britney Spears?
Robet Éivaayvah on September 12th, 2003 07:18 pm (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
They listen to mostly punk rock, including Blink 182, and ummm stuff. She calls it "happy music", in contrast to my "angry music". She also references her music to the colour yellow, which reminds me, personally, of urine.
Jacobyak_boy on September 13th, 2003 12:34 am (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
Check out my livejournal site then, since yellow is my favourite colour.

Blink 182 is so not punk rock.
It's mainstream soft-cock.
Tell her to listen to the Sex Pistols.
Robet Éivaayvah on September 13th, 2003 01:57 am (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
Well, I'm not sure what Blink 182 is, but what would you classify Antiskeptic and Sum 41?

Oh, her favourite right now is apparently Linkin Park.

I just remember Blink 182 (Or Boxcar Racers or whatever) because they're the most painful to listen to.

But yeah, she says she listens to punk. I have a feeling that the Ataris are actual punk though? I don't know, I never really understood how the music genres were differentiated.

I think I listen to metal. To my knowledge though, Metallica is basic metal, and I don't really like them all that much.
Jacobyak_boy on September 13th, 2003 02:12 am (UTC)
Re: Hunka Hunka Burning Lurrve.
I was really just bagging modern punk, it's all classified as punk, but I was just stating a preference for old school punk.

There is always a lot of difference within a "genre", just listen to whatever you like.

Linkin Park suck donkey balls.
Obviously if your sister thinks that tripe is music she's not going to like Ben Harper.
