From Elastic To Physcokity........

Kind of like that crappy movie From Justin To Kelly.........except the music in my version is much, much better.

Super Blogger PHYSCOKITY and I are so musically compatible. It's a crying shame we don't live closer to one another because then we could totally co-DJ important events like Ward socials, bar mitzvahs, and maybe even an IHOP grand opening or two! Think of it, Physcokity- we could get paid in pancakes!

DJ Elastica and Physcokity rocking the house! Yesssssss. I'm going to buy us matching gold spandex catsuits and coordinating headbands.

Here's a few more songs that I thought you'd love, Physcokity.

VOICE IN MY HEAD- PAINKILLER HOTEL
(Check out the guitarists. One looks like Scott Foley and the other is a ringer for Sean Astin)

I'D RATHER DANCE WITH YOU(THAN TALK WITH YOU)- KINGS OF CONVENIENCE
(The favorite of oldest Infidel daughter Sunbum, right now.)

MOVE- CSS

SILVER LINING-RILO KILEY

One of my favorite commenters and fellow homeschooling mother, J-MOM asked me where I hear all this music. Well, we don't have cable TV, or an iTouch, or even a Wii gaming system. It's rare that we splurge on superfluous items and gadgets, but since I spend half my life driving around, my man, Papi wisely purchased me an XM Satellite Radio system for my truck a few years ago. It happened none too soon because shortly after I developed an extreme allergic reaction to FM radio stations that made me break out in hives every time they played Rihanna, Nickelback, and Lil Wayne 20 times an hour. XM radio quite possibly saved my life and my sanity. I have music A.D.D. Fortunately, I like almost all genres so that keeps me busy channel-hopping on the hundred or so music stations XM has to offer.

I'm a huge music snob now. I seriously can't have a normal conversation with someone without it reminding me of some random musical lyric. Sometimes I can control myself and keep from bursting out singing. Most of the time, though, I can't. My friend, Millie, often converses in an entire language comprised of nothing more than the finest quotes from TV shows and movies. We make an interesting pair.

*I certainly don't expect anyone to sit through 4 music videos nor do I expect any comments. I just was in the mood for sharing some great tracks that you'll likely never hear on mainstream radio because they're too busy playing their role as Masters Of Musical Mediocrity.*

b.: My mom was going to name me Rebecca. That is, until she heard Barry Manilow's tender ballad Could It Be Magic? where he croons, "Sweet Melissa, Angel Of My Lifetime." And so that's how I came to possess the most popular girls name of 1974 along with millions of other Melissa's.

It all makes sense now. When we had satelite radio the Disney station seemed to reign in our vehicle. We moved to an area that had a local Disney and we got rid of satelite, and we still listen to Disney all the time, obviously kids choice not mine! I agree to please the masses. So lesson learned as to why I know no cool music.

Malissa (gram didn't know how to spell) was my mom's name too.
I did not know Barry sang of Melissa!

JustRandi said...

Wow! I had completely forgotten about that line from Barry Manilow.
But I can't tell you how many times as a teenager people would substitute Randi for Mandy and sing Barry Manilow to me until they couldn't remember any more words besides the chorus.
And every one of them thought they were truly original, too.

I wish I had XM radio. I really liked that last video.

wynne said...

I liked the "Move" video a little too much.

If only I had some willing victims who would let me take pictures of them!

wynne said...

Oh, and Elastic? I want you to tell ME I have fabulous taste in music. Even if it is a complete and utter lie. C'mon. Go ahead and say it.

Nancy Face said...

I got to meet Physcokity! She's awesome! :)

Rebecca said...

What? You mean you don't love the oversexed songs of Misses Britney, Jessica and that girl from High School Musical who came out with that trashy video? (Saw it at the gym last year. Saw HSM on TV a few weeks ago and wasn't impressed.)

Me either.

yours and millie's musical knowledge is astounding. and rather embarrassing, considering i think i'm PRETTY up on the new music but compared to you guys, i'm nothin.

Physcokity said...

Holy--Sam Wise! He is a ringer for Sean Astin!

Thanks for the hot music tips! I don't rock it satellite style, but I do love me some good music!

I bow to your mad skills (cue clip from Wayne's World "We're not worthy! We're not worthy!") and the ability to brave the front lines of the XM music world to share with us less fortunates the most rockin' tracks evah.

You pretty much just described me too! That's why I pretty much live off of my mix CDs, and EWBL reccommendations or course ;)

"I seriously can't have a normal conversation with someone without it reminding me of some random musical lyric."

For me it's generally movies, but the references are again still obscure and rendered useless and unfunny by those who haven't seen it. :(

P to the S "I just was in the mood for sharing some great tracks that you'll likely never hear on mainstream radio because they're too busy playing their role as Masters Of Musical Mediocrity"

I'm ready to kick someone for that. It's a totaly racket :S

1) CSS has some serious polaroid prowess! I'm jealous of those shots.

2)It looks like they also took a page out of NCS/SHG's book with that pic of the dude with the rockin' hat @ 2:17ish.

3)I.am.in LOVE with those checkered pants ;)
