a new kind of music list

If there's a new music meme floating around, I'm on it. Saw it first at Tanya's and then everywhere, including MeFi:

Songs in List Form.

I thought I'd try it with one of the songs from this post.

41. Flock of Seagulls - I Ran

  • Walked along:
    • the avenue
  • Girl like you:
    • auburn hair
    • tawny eyes
    • the kind of eyes that hypnotize me through
  • I ran
    • so far away
    • all night and day
  • couldn't:
    • get away
  • Above your head:
    • cloud
    • beam of light
    • cloud [nearer]
    • aurora borealis
    • aurora borealis [twice!]
  • I ran
    • so far away
    • all night and day
  • hands
    • reach out to touch your face
  • disappearing
    • from view
    • from view!
  • hands (again)
    • reach out (again)
  • float
    • beam of light
    • beam of light
    • with you!
  • I ran
    • so far away
    • all night and day
  • couldn't
    • get away

It's been a long time since I made indented lists, so don't mind my weird structure.

I dare you - no, I triple dog dare you - to try this.

afterthought:

    • 1982
    • me
  • hair
    • gel
    • aqua net
    • toothpaste
    • glue
  • 14
    • shampoos to get it all out

Comments

  • Hey hey:
    • mama:
      • gonna make you:
        • sweat
        • groove

    • baby:
      • watch your honey drip
      • oh baby, pretty baby

  • Can't:
    • keep away
    • stand still
    • get my fill

  • Tell me what:
    • you do me now

  • Ah:
    • ah:
      • ah:
        • ah:
          • ah:
            • aaaaaaaAAAAHHH!

  • clap clap clap

    She is:

    a very kinky girl
    The kind you don't take home to mother
    never hard to please
    pretty wild now
    super freak
    The kind of girl you read about in:
    New-wave magazine
    pretty kinky
    all right, she's all right
    all right with me, yeah
    a very special girl
    The kind of girl you want to know
    Where?
    From her head down to her toenails
    Down to her feet, yeah

    She will:
    o never let your spirits down
    o Once you get her off the street
    o Wait for me
    o Where?
    backstage with her girlfriends
    In a limousine
    Going back in Chinatown

    She likes:
    the boys in the band

    Her all-time favorite?
    Me

    I:
    make my move to her room
    When?
    The right time
    really love to taste her
    When?
    Every time we meet

    Is Three a crowd to her?
    No.

    Room #?
    714

    She's got?
    incense, wine and candles
    It's such a freaky scene

    Well, that completely messed up my bullets and indenting. You get the gist, though.

    Excellent job, Eric.

    • And you may find yourself:
      • Living in a shotgun shack
      • In another part of the world
      • Behind the wheel of
        • a large automobile
      • [...]
      • Living
        • in a beautiful house
        • with a beautiful wife
    • And you may ask yourself:
      • Well?
      • How did I get here?

    (Spot the mistake. This was fun, though, and I may post a corrected version on my blog.)

    • load up on
      • guns
      • and bring your friends
    • its fun to
      • lose
      • pretend
    • she's
      • over board
      • self assured
    • i know
      • a dirty word
    • hello
      • hello
        • hello
          • how low?

    Part math geek, part general computer geek, part shreds of various programming languages, and nearly total gibberish.

    You have been warned.

    Given that:

    • Your band has
      • Awesome percussion involving destruction of kitchen appliances
      • The best gratuitous buttcrack ever used in a music video

        • (Lonely) AND (never comin' 'round (you))
        • Tired(listening) TO sound(my tears)
        • Nervous that now > best(all the years)
        • Terrified AND then I see the look in your eyes
        • Restless and I dream(*.*)
        • Helpless AND I'm lying LIKE "a child in your arms"
        • Angry AND I know I've got TO get out AND cry
        • Terrified but then I see the look in your eyes
      • I fall apart
    • I need you
      • Now TO night
      • > ever
    • Only
      • Hold
        • Tight (me)
        • Forever
      • Making it right
    • Once upon a time
      • Falling in love
    • Now
      • Falling apart
    • Nothing I can
      • Do x*
      • Say x*
      • *[x | x=cardiac eclipse (total)]
    • Every now AND then
      • I know
        • You'll be the boy
          • (Never) you always you wanted TO be
          • (Always) who wanted me the way that I am
        • There's
          • No one i in the universe such that f(i)> f(you), where f is:
            • magical
            • wondrous
          • No thing t such that
            • t is any better
            • I just wouldn't do t
      • I fall apart
