A music meme for a boring morning...

Post 5 songs that begin with a certain letter. The fabtastic jaysta_11 gave me the letter H.



1. Helter Skelter---The Beatles. Thanks for ruining a great rock song, Charles Manson, you freaking psycho. If you don't know the story, Manson thought the Beatles were sending him a message in this song about an impending race war. At the scene of one of the Manson Family murders, a misspelling of the song title ("Healter Skelter") was written in blood. The song was actually inspired by a Pete Townsend interview, after which Paul McCartney wanted to record the "nastiest, sweatiest" rock song possible. The title was taken from the name of a slide at a British amusement park.

2. Hollaback Girl---Gwen Stefani. IDK. B-A-N-A-N-A-S! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

3. Handle With Care---Travelling Wilburies. I think I have the soul of an old hippie. I flove the Wilburies' music. Sad there wasn't more than the 2 albums. George Harrison + Bob Dylan + Tom Petty + Jeff Lynne + Roy Orbison=magic.

4. Harden My Heart---Quarterflash. I watched the "Best One-Hit Wonders of the 80s" on VH1 a couple weeks ago and was reminded that I love this song, so I immediately downloaded it. When I was younger, I thought the line "I'm gonna swallow my tears" was "I'm gonna call on my Pierre". Yeah, IDK either.

5. Hello, It's Me---Todd Rundgren. Or the John Legend version, both are nice and easy and mellow. Whenever I hear the original version, I think of the first episode of That 70's Show when the gang is driving back from the Todd Rundgren concert & singing this in the Vista Cruiser.
