Annie of McGuffy’s Reader thought a positive note to start the week would give us all a boost. I agree and here is my way to help you start the week.
Samantha of Samanthamurdochblog nominated us for the “The Shuffle The Music Tag” and we thank you, Samantha, for thinking of us. Granted she nominated us in August and us lazy ones are just getting around to posting now. Glad Samantha never held her breath waiting for our response.
We are sharing with you our playlist……actually its Kali’s playlist on the computer. I turn the music on when Kali gets uptight with whatever pains she’s currently enduring. Kali is very fond of all of these songs as she becomes mellow and relaxes. Seeing these are her songs, she can guide us through them. Take it away, Kali.
For “The Shuffle The Music Tag” just put whatever device you use to listen to your music on, and press the shuffle button, and write a little something about the first fifteen songs that come up, what they mean to you, their history, whatever takes your fancy. We will be doing 10 songs. Then nominate seven or more people to participate, obviously letting them know.
I use the computer and *I Tunes* so mom shuffled my music.
1/ The first song up is I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City by Harry Nilsson. This song has relaxing lyrics and the tempo is perfect for drying nail polish on my toes. Granted occasionally I swing my paws over the side of my Princess Bed as the tune is so catchy. All in all a soothing song. Sorry, the sun is blocking my paw but my nails are drying faster. mol
This song is so relaxing that if I get upset, this song has me clapping my paws and mellowing with sleepy eyelids. Mom was saying that these chaps played at many of the spots in England that the Beatles did. Well, I’ll be a bug!
Mom thinks I like this song but it makes me feel so cold as the peeps struggled so hard in this movie. It’s a great song for those hot summer days. Cools off the warmest of days.
Typical Harry Nilsson song with soothing sounds from a powerful voice. This song was featured in Midnight Cowboy with Jon Voight.
Mew, mew….this song is great when I’m feeling down cause my paws are hurting so I feel very unimportant. The upbeat sounds of this song make it so I can’t be down for long….I want to get up and investigate a drawer and try to find some nip.
This song reminds me of all my woofie friends and their favourite pass time. It would be neat to bury one’s treats and come back later to retrieve them. Unfortunately, I have this thing about dirt. I will not eat anything with dirt all over it. It’s a very icky habit. Shoko eats things she buries but not moi.
A terrible plight for these sailors out on Lake Superior or Lake Gitchee Gumee To me, this is not relaxing but Gordon Lightfoot has a great voice and mom likes the song.
This is a song just for us Canadian girls, Shoko, mom and me. It makes me feel happy with its upbeat music. I want to dance but Shoko’s a terrible dancer….always stepping on my paws.
She looks good but watch those spikes….they hurt like hell-o!
This song drives me crazy! I love this guy’s voice. He makes the sun shine in my heart when he sings to me. What a voice…..if only my Buddy could sing like him.*sigh*
Isn’t he somethin’? hehe.
This is my very favourite song! I could just float away on the words. I can just picture Moon River as blue as can be without an insect or reptile in it. Just cruising along the river in a paddlewheeler with Buddy holding my paw. *Aha, sigh* I know it’s supposed to be the Mississippi River and that’s so muddy that your shadow will have dirt on it…..forget all that just go with the sweet music and the illusion you get.
There you have it, friends. My playlist and a hot one it is too. I have more songs on it but this will give you an idea of my favourites.
We’re supposed to nominate 7 peeps/kitties for The Music Tag. I am reluctant because I would like to hear everybody’s idea of good music. Phenny of Easy Blog...oh Phenny, tell me your playlist, Bacon from Piglove….bring it on bud. May I say that anyone else that wishes to do the playlist, please let us know so we can admire your songs.
Let’s move that table Kali so there’s room to dance and play, *herd of elephants*. Crap it’s heavy Shoko! I know but I couldn’t ask mom and dad to move it before they left. I guess not.
KALI…..ORANGE What kinda food should we put out Shoko? That’s no biggie Kali….we’ll put out what we like for the cats, the others may be a bit more difficult but we’ll figure it out. Chickens, roasted with powdered nip and silvervine stuffing. Geez databbiesotrouttowne are not going to be pleased with a berd around. Well, it’s not alive or pecking at them and many of our pals love chicky. We can’t please everyone Kali, I wish we could but we’re all different
We have a dish called Sashimi. Sashimi is used to cleanse your palette between different courses. Salmon fresh from the Pacific. We had some Sockeye Salmon filets shipped in from Prince Rupert to tempt the taste buds of the fishy fanatics like YOU. hehe
We will grill the salmon to perfection right in front of your eyes. For those more daring we have salmon sushi. Wow Shoko where did you get this stuff? It’s delicious but we didn’t have any money. Well, the chicky was in the freezer and the salmon was sent down to us from our friends in Rupert. We don’t have any friends in Rupert Shoko. Do you hafta be so picky Kali? Did you do something dishonest for it Shoks? No, I got the salmon from the freezer too. So, you’re just a big wind bag Shoko! Nope, these things are perfect. Where do you think mom and dad got the salmon? Prince Rupert? Exactly.
Now when our pals bring their lucky pot dishes, we’ll have a tasty set up. Why the name lucky pot? The police will be alerted to our activities. Let them be! We’re lucky to have a pot of anything from our friends. That’s what I mean.
Gracie lent us her favourite condo playground to play and have herd of elephant games. It’s a massive tree.
I “borrowed” 2 diffusers to play. “Name That Stink.” What do our friends win if they guess the right stink, Shoko? Ummm…I never thought of that Kali. What toys do you have Kali? Toys that don’t have teeth marks in them like mine? I got a wind up mouse but I slobber on my toys. It’s rude to give a bitten or slobbered on toy. I know!! Remember those straws that mom found when she went out for coffee with her friend. You mean the ones from Starbucks and Tim Horton’s? Exactly! There must be 70 of them there. Mom goes out for coffee a lot. Those can be take home prizes. Is Nellie coming Shoko? She figures she can sneak away for a few hours but will be home when mom goes to visit. Nellie wouldn’t say a word about our pawty to mom, I know it. She is the Queen of The Cat From Hell so she won’t say ,”nip.” She can get on her cell phone and let us know when mom’s coming home. Then we can have everything shiny and new looking.
