i know, i know.
i need to post about the minneapolis trip.
i need to post about the halloween party.
i need to post about trick or treating with the kids.
i know this.
and i will this weekend {maybe even tonight}.
so be on the lookout.

okay, onto the random facts.

can you guys believe that i have actually kept up with this whole random facts friday thing? i can't and you have no idea how amazing it is that i have.

okay, so this week's topic i've been wanting to post for a couple of weeks, but other topics have came up.

i'm going to talk about a love of mine.

a love of classic rock music.

now don't get me wrong, i do love other music/artists {insert my boyfriend dave (matthews) and damien (rice), but most of my ipod is contained with classic rock.

five classic rock stations are programmed on my car radio.

i can't live without it.

since i was young, i've always loved that type of music. probably has something to do with the fact that my mom listened to that type of music (to this day, i can still remember her buying me one of those "paint" books (where the paint is already outlined on the page and you just "paint" with water) and listening to toto singing "africa". i was probably six or seven. wouldn't that be about right mom? we were on natamac).

anyway, there is nothing that gets my body shakin' more then listening to "mr. saturday night" by lynard skynard or "while my guitar gently weeps" by the beatles.

i'd give my right arm to see the rolling stones on their current tour (anyone wanna buy me a ticket at $500 bucks a pop???).

i don't know why i like, but i do!

i love it all.

while we were in minneapolis, i had forgotten my ipod at work and had classic rock withdrawals. as soon as we got in the car back at the airport at home, i turned the radio on so friggin' fast (before i had even lit up a smoke) and deep sighed commenting on how much i missed it.

okay, here are a few of my favorites:

"mama i'm coming home"-ozzy osborne
"under my thumb"-rolling stones
"you can't always get what ya want"-rolling stones (my life theme song)
"while my guitar gently weeps"-beatles
"free bird"-skynard
"mr. saturday night"-skynard
"turn the page"-bob seger
"jukebox hero"-foreigner
"break down"-tom petty
"refugee"-tom petty
"pressure"-david bowie/queen
"no more mr. nice guy"-alice cooper
"simple man"-skynard
"fool in the rain"-led zeppelin
"living on a prayer"-bon jovi
"pour some sugar on me"-def leopard
"hurricane"-bob dylan (this is one of mikey's favorite songs which i don't know if
that makes me a bad mother or not, but oh well).
"keep talking"-pink floyd
"devil went down to george"-charlie daniels
"witchy woman"-eagles
"bungle in the jungle"-can't think of who sings that right now

i guess i'll end the list there. wish i had my ipod with me and then i'd be able to list em all. 'cause i could seriously go on and on and on.

i wear a rolling stones and a lynard skynard tshirt (ya know those "vintage" style ones they sell at walmart?) ALL.OF.THE.TIME!!!

what can i say?

i'm a classic rocker through and through.

so thats it for this week's installment. anyone else with me? anyone else out there that would agree that listening to a good tom petty song is the best damn thing ever???

{now off to listen to yahoo's classic rock channel}

Is Bon Jovi and Def Leopard classic rock? I like classic rock too, mostly because that's what I grew up with. I remember going to the record store with my dad to pick out albums when I was a kid.

Kristi Sauer said...

I am a HUGE Beatles fan, love Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd, Robin Trower, early Clapton, Tom Petty, etc!!!
But Def Leppard and Bon Jovi will always be 80's rock to me :) (Love that too!)

I so love reading your Random Fact Friday. I'm going to have to start it up again - cause I think its great. And...yeah "pour some sugar on me" is an all time fav. I'm not going to lie..all my cousins have played it at their weddings and we all have sang and danced our little hearts out to it.

Max is a huge Dylan fan too, I think it makes us awesome moms!

And where are the Halloween pics?!?!?!

aja said...

Ah, classic rock. My very favorite as well. I remember stealing my Dad's Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon" when I was little and listening to it when I went to sleep. My own lullaby! Course with a name like Aja (my parent's homage to their favorite Steely Dan album) I probably had no chance of NOT loving all of it...

classic rock is the bomb that is why everyone is remixing it, country, rap, everyone is putting a little sample of it it there songs, I guess, when something is good its timeless right

andrea said...

oh the memories...your post makes me remember roller skating to that Toto song at the roller rink in 3rd grade with my puka shell necklace and my hair in a side pony tail. at work we listen to the classic rock channel and I dig it but at home I'm a mellow kinda gal, my hubby is the rocker like you and would appreciate all those tunes. rock on!

Josie said...

Next Random Fact Friday needs to be all time favorite TV shows, this is prompted of course by my recent purchase
