I was persuaded to change the title of my list, too. It makes sense this way....

Cloned From: 

"The Tide is High"...about three years ago, I had that song on repeat for about a month.

Really? I'm guessing that you're probably the only person who actually recognized the lyrics when I put them in my blog, then...

I can't speak for anyone else, but I know that I recognized them.

By the way, have you heard the original "Tide is High" by The Paragons? It's original Jamaican ska; worth a download.

Some very nice stuff here.

Ain't college internet connection speeds the best?

Shalom, y'all!

Thank you! I've been trying really hard to expand my taste in music recently, and I've gotten very good advice from my dad and a few friends.

The only thing about college internet connection speeds - it's so hard to tear myself away! I have absolutely no motivation to work, and I only just finished my first week of classes...

Ooh, now I'm responsible for two of your addictions! I won't rest until I can take credit for all ten!

Heh. I didn't even realize that until you said something. Damn you and your good taste...

Oh no, you're slipping! You'd better hope you don't fall off the list completely, pal...

Damn! Download some more TMBG songs until you find another you really like. Oh, and watch "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" again - hey, at least I recommended it to you.

I went to that snowflake site and I have to admit I had so much fun.I felt like I was 5 again.Thank you.

Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Yankee Foxtrot Hotel is an awesome album! Jeff Tweedy is a musical genius.

Yeah, I love it. I think it's been on this list since I got it in October! :-)

Ha ha! Saved By The Bell,the tales of Kelly,Zack,Slater,Screech,Jessie and Lisa will live on FOREVER!

I like talking to you as well! :) :)

Me too, of course.

Me three!

"Ruby" - The Apples in Stereo (SONG)

Amen.
