And a meme.

Comment and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 15 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter.


I just told iTunes to put stuff in alphabetical order and picked my favs, so it's not exactly a perfect sampling...

1. "Dame Más (Loaded)" - Ricky Martin
Dame la libertad
Para entrar en tu alma
Hacerte soñar

(The English version has nothing at all to do with this song. I like this better. This line doesn't translate well, but it's something to the effect of "give me the freedom to enter your soul to help you dream". I think. Feel free to correct me.)

2. "Dance: Ten, Looks: Three" - A Chorus Line
Tits and ass.
Orchestra or balcony.
What they want is whatcha see.
Keep the best of you.
Do the rest of you.

3. "Dancin' in the Street" - the Mamas and the Papas
All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin', swayin' and records playin'
And dancin' in the streets

4. "The Dangling Conversation" - Simon & Garfunkel
Like a poem poorly written,
We are verses out of rhythm,
Couplets out of rhyme,
In syncopated time.

5. "Danse Macabre" - Camille Saint-Saens
(I love this piece a little too much for it to be completely normal, but whatever.)

6. "Dark as a Dungeon" - the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
There's many a man I have seen in my day
Who lived just to labor his whole life away
Like the fiend with his dope and the drunkard his wine
A man can have lust for the lure of the mine

(Little-known fact: I was a coal miner in a past life. And an IRA activist, but that's something else.)

7. "Dites-Moi" - South Pacific
La vie est belle.
La vie est gai.

(Hurrah, bastardised French. I think this means "tell me why life is beautiful, tell me why life is gay [happy]". Again, feel free to correct.)

8. "Diva's Lament" - Spamalot
I am sick of my career,
Always starting second gear.
Up to here, with frustration and with fears.
I've no Grammy, no rewards.
I've no Tony Awards.
I'm constantly replaced with Britney Spears.

9. "Do You Believe in Magic?" - the Lovin' Spoonful
I'll tell you about the magic,
It'll free your soul.
But it's like trying to tell a stranger
'Bout rock and roll

10. "Do You Know What It's Like?" - Zanna, Don't!
If someone were to come up to me
And say that they knew how
To love you better, I'd say,
'Buddy, step into the ring you're going down.'
I'd fight a guy for you.
I'd fight a girl for you.
I'd fight myself, you know I would,
If I thought it'd do any good.
Oh, do you know?

11. "Don't Turn Around" - Ace of Base
Don't turn around,
'Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking.
Don't turn around.
I don't want you seeing me cry.

12. "Down to Nowhere" - Thea Gilmore
I am going down to nowhere.
It is steeped in history.
This is high-rise living
For a joke like me.

13. "Down With Love" - Audra McDonald
Down with eyes, romantic and stupid.
Down with sighs, down with cupid.
Brother, let's stuff that dove.
Down with love.

14. "Drift Away" - Linda Eder
Oh, give me the beat, boys,
And free my soul.
I wanna get lost
In your rock and roll
And drift away.

15. "Dulcinea" - Man of La Mancha
Half a prayer, half a song,
Thou hast always been with me,
Though we have been always apart.
