Mad Scientess Jane Expat
[the weather today is |flail]

In uncharacteristic fashion, I have procrastinated on something to the point that I may need to stay up quite late tonight in order to finish it.

So I'm asking for your help in getting through it. If you feel up to the task, all you have to do is post a comment containing an MP3 of a song that's one of your favorite guilty pleasures. I realize that one person's Cheesy Fluff might be another's Serious Business, so anonymous commenting is enabled and automatically unscreened. For dodgy file hosting services, I recommend SendSpace.

Oh, and as for That Holiday, the people who cut right to the heart of the matter are The Wet Spots. Do you take it? (So very NSFW.)

You smell nice and you're groovy
And we both like foreign movies
My mother says you have that touch of class
Well I can see a shining future
Where we'll dialog and nurture
But there's one last thing I feel I need to ask...

This is by a band called Garp, I got it years ago on a cover CD (for the Future Music magazine, which I'm not even sure if it's still published).

I've got no idea which the tune is called, since it was a demo track, and the CD just had the groups name.

I've got one other track by them, which I do know the name of (Prototype), but that's it.

Anyway, here they both are, my favourite is the first:

(Do not play the first one loud from the start with the speaker turned up, you will regret it!)

Oops, I meant don't play the second one loud from the start...

Oh well, apologies to anyone with headphones who now has ringing in their ears.

I was hurrying around on the underground with a large chocolate cake during rush hour last night, and people were smiling indulgently at me, and I was singing that song in my head. Haha.

Actually, I don't think guiltily of it either.

I pretty much have no shame when it comes to music. None.

I have no shame because I never tell anyone.

Except for right now.

I didn't have it - at least, not on my work laptop - so yes, thank you, that cheered me up immensely.

Guilty pleasures? Me? I guess I listen to a little Montovani now and then.

I posted this recently in my journal, but it applies here: KT Tunstall covering the Jackson Five's I Want You Back (live).

Is it supposed to be a valentine's thing? Or just in general?
My latest (very guilty, I try not to make out the words in the verses at all because it's probably just as fucked up as I think it is)
is Move Bitch by Ludacris but I don't know if that's the um sound you're looking for.

Haha, you're right about the sound. I'm glad I'm unable to concentrate on the lyrics at the moment.

what's worse is the dirty little secret that broadcast this meme to me....


Oh so terrible, and you even might have heard of it because it's a british tv show. Which I wouldn't have known about if I hadn't already gotten totally hooked on Nevermind the Buzzcocks in the past couple months....

OK,
How about this?

Dorky science but awesome...? SO I guess I'm kinda guilty about it.

Confusion because I feel slightly guilty about loving the whole movie (Sakuran) and that this song actually makes me cry because of context?
I dunno. /f is where choons are kept so browse it if you want.

Oh how I wish "Perfecting My Warrior Robot Race" were a viable first-year physics project topic.
