My last post got me thinking about all of the great songs about crushes. So in honor of my crush “Jake Ryan” (think 16 Candles not Hannah Montana), this week is crush week. The song of the day will obviously be a song about liking someone.

I loved My Boo when it came out. The song never really got old for me. It reminds me of my sophomore year of high school.

Boy you should know that
I’ve got you on my mind
Your secret admirer
I’ve been watching you

[Chorus: x2]
At night, I think of you
I want, to be your lady, baby
If your game is on give me a call boo
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you

[Verse 1:]
Everyday I pray my heart can win
Every night I pray I can call you my man (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I need you, I want you, to have you, hold you, squeeze you
So I’m going out, every weekend
Just to see my boo again

[Chorus: x2]
At night, I think of you
I want, to be your lady, baby
If your game is on give me a call boo
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you

[Verse 2:]
These feelings I have for you
Can go deeper if you can come
Correct with your game boy (no, no)
No you can’t be lame boy
But if you can plea—ease me–ee
Then my love will come easy
I’ll do anything you want
Freak me boy, I’m thinking of you

[Chorus: x2]
At night, I think of you
I want, to be your lady, baby
If your game is on give me a call boo
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you

[Verse 3:]
Boy you’ve got all I need
From what I see-ee-ee
And boy every night I am constantly thinking of you-oo-oo

[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus: x2]
At night, I think of you
I want, to be your lady, baby
If your game is on give me a call boo
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you

Clumsy ’cause I’m fallin in love (in love)
You got me slippin (oh), tumbling (oh), sinking (oh), mumbling (so)
Clumsy ’cause I’m fallin in love (in love)
So in love with you

Can’t help it
The girl can’t help it (oh baby)
Can’t help it, The girl can’t help it (oh no)
Can’t help it, The girl can’t help it (oh no)
Can’t help it

Can’t breath

You know, this isn’t the first time this has happened to me
This love sick thing
I like serious relationships ain’t I,
A girl like me dont stay single for long
‘Cause everytime a boyfriend and I break up
My world is crushed and I’m all alone
The love bug crawls right back up and bites me and I’m back

Can’t help it

Clumsy ’cause I’m fallin in love (in love)
So in love with you
So in love with you
So in love with you

Going Freelance… http://musicalladders.com/2008/04/26/going-freelance/ http://musicalladders.com/2008/04/26/going-freelance/#comments Sat, 26 Apr 2008 19:51:23 +0000 Lilo Lale http://sotd.wordpress.com/?p=181

Well, after a lot of thought, I’ve officially decided that I’m going to try the freelance thing again. I know. I know. It’s a hell of a lot easier said than done, but this is a work in progress. I’m not talking about quitting my job tomorrow. I’m going to start doing small jobs on the side again to build my portfolio. I also need to get my finances in better shape.

So why am I considering this? If you look through some of my past posts, you will see that I am very bored with my job. I know what type of work I want to do, and I know I’m good at it.

When I finished school, I pictured myself getting a cool job doing something different that would give me some great experience. Now, I have learned a lot through my current job. From a business standpoint, it opened me up to things I didn’t know about. I’ve also learned a lot about my local government. Things I didn’t know before because I had never taken the time to learn. But at the same time, I actually want to work. I like to have goals and things to work towards. I am lacking that. Everything is so sporadic. Plus, where I live it’s hard to find a job doing what I REALLY want to be doing. There is not a lot of opportunity, and I’m not in a position to up and move. Someday, but not now.

I’ve always wanted to do this, but I don’t think I was ever in the right place to seriously consider it. I am now. I’ve started taking the appropriate steps, and I’ve done my research. The transition is going to take some time, and I’m perfectly okay with that.

Was I Out of My Head? http://musicalladders.com/2008/04/20/was-i-out-of-my-head/ http://musicalladders.com/2008/04/20/was-i-out-of-my-head/#comments Mon, 21 Apr 2008 03:09:42 +0000 Lilo Lale http://sotd.wordpress.com/?p=180

So… it’s Sunday which means tomorrow is Monday.. How did I ever figure that one out. It also means I get to go back to work. yay..

Before I got into my rant, I just want to make one thing clear. I am thankful that I have a job. Very thankful. It came at a good time. I don’t mind working. I WANT to work.

But I am so bored. I have been since I started. I’ve had the job about 6 1/2 months now and things haven’t improved. I talked to my “kinda sorta” supervisor one day and explained the situation. She gave me some stuff to do. Then when she was checking in on me, she told me I was working too fast. I understand the point she was making, but what kind of messed up situation is that? I have to stretch out the mundane task I’ve been given so I can continue to have work to do? I knew when she gave me the list of stuff it would only keep my busy a couple of weeks. But she was oh so excited because she thought we had made some type of progress. It was really stuff she should have told me to do before I even asked, but this “kinda sorta” supervisor thing is new to her. I told her before I thought the position could be done part time. If I could take the pay cut, I’d mention to my “real” supervisor (her boss) as a way to save money cause the department budget is hurting right now.

It’s just hard to be excited and motivated about a job when there is not a big need for you to be there. I think they should have waited until the program was a little bigger before hiring an extra person over here.

I’m keeping my head up though and trying to stay positive. There is a lesson to be learned in every situation. You just have to be willing to learn. I want to learn.

All I Wanna Do Is Dance.. Still.. http://musicalladders.com/2008/04/17/all-i-wanna-do-is-dance-still/ http://musicalladders.com/2008/04/17/all-i-wanna-do-is-dance-still/#comments Fri, 18 Apr 2008 01:01:23 +0000 Lilo Lale http://sotd.wordpress.com/?p=179

I’ve still got some cleaning up to do around here. Mainly with the categories. They are still kind of messed up.

Is it just me or does dancing make anyone else feel better? I love to dance. I love music though; so maybe that’s it.

Things are going pretty well with me right now. I’ve still got some personal stuff that I’m working through, but spiritually I’m in a good place. I’ve learned so much in the past weeks about myself, life, and God. It’s stuff that I always knew, but when you see it in action it makes a world of difference. I think I may go into details in the near future.

I am so ready for Friday to be here. This weekend there will not be any extra people here!! So, I can relax and catch up on tidying up.

So after about 6 months of hosting my blog, I’m back to wordpress.com. It was fun having so much control, but it wasn’t worth spending money to keep it going. I don’t have a problem being back here except it’s going to be a PAIN going through and updating the posts that had videos in them. I ask that you all be patient with me.

SotD: Nickelback - Rockstar http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/27/sotd-nickelback-rockstar/ http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/27/sotd-nickelback-rockstar/#comments Thu, 27 Mar 2008 17:51:34 +0000 Lilo Lale http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/27/sotd-nickelback-rockstar/

Who hasn’t ever wished they were a rockstar? or at least could live the “glamorous” celebrity life? I have at one point or another although I’d never actually want to do either. But this song is so fun you can’t help but love it, ya know.

I’m through with standing in line
to clubs we’ll never get in
It’s like the bottom of the ninth
and I’m never gonna win
This life hasn’t turned out
quite the way I want it to be
(Tell me what you want)

I want a brand new house
on an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enough
for ten plus me
(So What You Need)

I’ll need a credit card that’s got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet
(Been there, Done that)

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My star own on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me
(so how you gonna do it)

I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name

‘Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny ‘cause we just won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up assholes
Sign a couple autographs
So I can eat my meals for free
(I’ll have the quesadilla)

I think I’m gonna dress my ass
with the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
Gonna date a centerfold that loves to
blow my money for me
(so how you gonna do it)

I’m gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair
And change my name

‘Cause we all just
wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses
driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and
the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny
‘cause we just won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
with her bleach blond hair
And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and
today’s who’s who
They’ll get you anything
with that evil smile
Everybody’s got a
drug dealer on speed dial well
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I’m gonna sing those songs
that offend the censors
Gonna pop my pills
from a pez dispenser
get washed-up singers writing all my songs
Lip sync em every night so I don’t get ‘em wrong

Well we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hillltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny ‘cause we just won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s gonna wind up there
Every playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair
And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and today’s who’s who
They’ll get you anything with that evil smile
Everybody’s got a drug dealer on speed dial
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I Heart the 90s: Lauryn Hill - Doo Wop (That Thing) http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/24/i-heart-the-90s-lauryn-hill-doo-wop-that-thing/ http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/24/i-heart-the-90s-lauryn-hill-doo-wop-that-thing/#comments Mon, 24 Mar 2008 19:43:31 +0000 Lilo Lale http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/24/i-heart-the-90s-lauryn-hill-doo-wop-that-thing/

Lauryn Hill put out some great songs during her prime. I miss her music. Last I heard, she was busy making babies with her husband.

 

[Lauryn - Singing Chorus]

Girls you know you’d- better, watch out (Watch out!)
Some guys, some guys are only about (About!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!)

Throw your hands in the air!
And let two shots in the atmosphere!

[Verse One - Lauryn]

It’s been three weeks since you were looking for your friend
The one you let hit it and never called you again
Remember when he told you he was about the benjamins?
You act like you ain’t hear him, and gave him a little trim
To begin, how you think you’re really going to pretend
Like you wasn’t down and you called him again?
Plus when, you give it up so easy you ain’t even foolin’ him
If you did it then, then you’d probably fuck again
Talking out your neck, saying you’re a Christian
A Muslim, sleeping with the Gin
Now that was the sin that did Jezebel in
Who’re you going to tell when the repercussions spin?
Showing off your ass ’cause your thinking it’s a trend
Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again!
You know I only say it ’cause i’m truly genuine
Don’t be a hard rock, when you really are a gem
Baby girl! Respect is just a minimum (minimum)
Nigga’s fucked up and you still defending him (defending him)
Now — Lauryn is only human (human)
Don’t think I haven’t been through the same predicament (predicament)
Let it sit inside your head like a million women in Philly Penn (philly Pen)
It’s silly when girls sell their souls because of sin (´cause of sin)
Look at what you be in, hair weaves like Europeans (European)
Fake nails done by Koreans

Come again
Yo! A-When when come again! (Yeah-Yeah!)
When when come again!! (Yeah-Yeah!)
My friend come again!!! (Yeah-Yeah!)

[Chorus - Lauryn]

Guys you know you’d better, watch out (Watch out!)
Some girls, some girls are only, about (About!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!)

[Verse Two - Lauryn]

The second verse is dedicated to the men
More concerned with his rims and his Tim’s than his women
Him and his men, come in the club like hooligans
Don’t care who they offend
Popping yin (Like you got yang!)
Let’s stop pretend, the ones that pack pistols by the waist men
Cristall by the case men, still living in his Mother’s basement
The pretty face men claiming that they be the “big men.”
Need to take care of their three and four kids
But they face a court case when the child support’s late
Money taking and heart breaking
Now you wonder why women hate men
The sneaky silent men
The punk domestic violence men
Quick to shoot the semen, stop acting like boys and be men! (be men)
How you gonna win, when you ain’t right within?! (within)
How you gonna win, when you ain’t right within?! (within)
How you gonna win, when you ain’t right within?! (within)
Unh-Unhh Come Again!
Yo-Yo Come Again!
bredrin come again!
Sit straight come again!

Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out
Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out
Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out
Watch out, watch out
Look out, look out

[Lauryn - Singing Chorus]

Girls you know you’d better, watch out (Watch out!)
Some guys, some guys are only about (About!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!
Some girls, some girls are only, about (About!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!)
That thing, that thing, that thing! (Thing!)

I Heart the 90s: Sheryl Crow - All I Wanna Do http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/20/i-heart-the-90s-sheryl-crow-all-i-wanna-do/ http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/20/i-heart-the-90s-sheryl-crow-all-i-wanna-do/#comments Thu, 20 Mar 2008 13:01:03 +0000 Lilo Lale http://musicalladders.com/2008/03/20/i-heart-the-90s-sheryl-crow-all-i-wanna-do/

I’m soooo glad it’s Thursday. Can’t wait until it’s Friday. :-) This has been a long week. I want to be out and about. Granted it’s Easter weekend, and I have to work on Saturday. So, I won’t be doing a ton, but I’m looking forward to the weekend.

Sheryl Crow is pretty awesome. This song takes me back to middle school. I remember when my friend explained to me what she really meant by having fun. Ha. This song is also the song of the day.

Intro (Spoken):
Hit it!
This ain’t no disco
This ain’t no country club either
This is LA!

All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die.
Says a man next to me, outta nowhere.
This apropos nothing. He says his name is William.
But I’m sure it’s Bill, or Billy, or Mac, or Buddy.
And he’s plain ugly to me.
And I wonder if he’s ever had a day of fun in his whole life.
We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday
In a bar that faces a giant car wash
The good people of the world are washing their cars
On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing
As best they can in skirts and suits
They drive their shiny Datsons and Buicks
Back to the phone company, the record store too,
Well, they’re nothing like Billy and me, cause

Chorus:
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica
Boulevard.

I like a good beer buzz early in the morning
And Billy likes to peel the labels
From his bottles of Bud
He shreds them on the bar
And he lights every match in an oversized pack
Letting each one burn down to his thick fingers
Before blowing and cursing them out - and he’s watching
THE BOTTLES OF BUD as they spin on the floor
And a happy couple enters the bar
Dangerously close to one another
The bartender looks up from his want ads.

Chorus:
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
Untill the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Otherwise the bar is ours. The day and the night
And the car wash too, the matches and the Buds
And the clean and dirty cars, the sun and the moon.

Chorus:
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
Untill the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard
