Musical Monday

Jori over at Jeff & Me + Three is hosting a musical monday. Very creepy since just like 2 hours ago I was thinking I should start something like this. Cool. But you stole my idea Jori. Just kidding!

But since I'm a total spaz when it comes to learning how to download a video from youtube (any help would be appriciated, I can pay in the form of kind thoughts) I'm simply going to link and share the lyrics with ya'll.

I'm not going to feature a song, like i'm supposed to, but a cd. I first heard "So What" by Pink a couple of months ago. With all the crap that V and I went through I thought this was the perfect break up song. I love to just turn this up and yell (sing) along.

You weren't there

You never were

You want it all

But that's not fair

I gave you life

I gave my all

You weren't there

You let me fall

So... So what

I'm still a rock star

I got my rock moves

And I don't need you

And guess what?

I'm having more fun

And now that we're done

I'm gonna show you

Tonight...I'm allright...

I'm just fine...

And you're a tool....

Best Break up song.... Ever. I'm telling you, there's nothing more cathartic than screaming this out the car window. And I love the video. Pink is awesome.

I bought the cd today and the second song on there also spoke to me and all the ups and downs i've been through the last year. Sober . The total ups and down roller coaster of emotions after a relationship is over. Who you are as person isn't who you thought you were and trying to find the real you just makes you even crazier.

I don't wanna be the girl that laughs the loudest...or the girl who never wants to be alone...I dont' wanna be that call at 4 oclock in the morning..cause i'm the only one you know in the world that won't be home.. that's not the way I want my story to end...I'm safe up high...Nothing can touch me...But why do I feel this party's over? pain're my protection...but how do I feel this good sober? ....I don't wanna be the girl that has to fill the silence... The quiet scares me cause it screams the truth....

......And if i let myself go i'm the only one to blame...when it's good then it's good, it's so good till it goes bad..till you're trying to find the you that you once had.. i have heard myself cry never agian...broken down in agony just trying to find a friend...

I. Love. This. Song.

The rest of the cd is just as awesome. But you can definately tell that she wrote most of the songs (if not all of them) when her relationship with her husband fell apart. Misery creates the best art.

I haven't listened to this CD, but my friend has it and loves it. Pink is just beautiful though. I agree...great breakup song.

Mama Wheaton said...

I like Pink too. ALso Ihave no idea to load a youtube video to my blog as well. Anyone have some help for us?

Allison said...

I, too, love that song.

Mimi said...

Great song. I love how Pink wants to "give her ex-husband away" when he gets married again!

Debbie said...

That is a great song. I've never tried to embed a video either.

Hello, I was just scouring the web and stumbled across your blog. To embed a You Tube video to your blog, look for a gray box off to the right of the page. Among other things you should see two fields (one labeled "URL" and the other labeled "Embed".) If the video owner has enabled embedding, copy the code from the field marked "Embed" into the body of your post draft. If you've already published a post (such as this one) and want to add a You Tube clip, just click on the appropriate link/button to edit your post.

You may have noticed that sometimes the video owner has disabled embedding. If that's the case and you can't find another copy of the video on You Tube, you may find an embeddable version of the video on (another video hosting site).

I hope this is helpful. If you still have questions, please let me know and I will try to walk you through it.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! Love this song too. My little guy hums it and asks me if I know it.

Ditto what Malcom said.

Once you copy the embedded link off of youtube, you then paste it into your post by clicking the edit html tag in the body of your post. Voila! It's that simple.

Love the pink song as well. Especially the "your a tool" line. It's classic. :)
