All Hail the Friday Five

Well, except for the fact that now I have "Moonshadow" stuck in my head - and I hate that song. Gaaaahd, why are these so haaaaard?
Ok, tossing out broadway tunes, even the line from "Try to Remember" - "when dreams were kept beneath your pillow" - and standards like "In Your Wildest Dreams" by the Moody Blues, scratch out "Like a Prayer," "Dreams I Left Behind," "We Close Our Eyes," ...hell, this shoulda been the Friday fifty :grumble::
What DO I boil it down to? I guess these. Liv, you really want padding for your playlist, drop me a line.


Ok, here goes:

5) "Dreaming" Blondie -
I don't want to live on charity
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity
People stop and stare at me We just walk on by - we just keep on
dreaming

4 tie)"For Emily, Wherever I May Find Her" Simon & Garfunkel -
And when you ran to me
Your cheeks flushed with the night.
We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight,
I held your hand.
And when I awoke and felt you warm and near,
I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears.


"Fever Dream" Iron And Wine -
Some days her shape in the doorway
Will speak to me
A bird’s wing on the window
Sometimes I’ll hear when she’s sleeping
Her fever dream
A language on her face


3) "Sand in My Shoes" Dido -
Two weeks away it feels like the world should've changed
But I'm home now
And things still look the same
I think I'll leave it to tomorrow till unpack
Try to forget for one more night
That I'm back in my flat on the road
Where the cars never stop going through the night
To real life where I can't watch sunset
I don't have time
I don't have time



2) "Golden Slumbers" The Beatles -
Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye


And number one? Of course it's by Suzanne Vega - but which one? Most of her stuff is haunting, rythmic and dreamlike. Eh, we'll go with the top two
"Book of Dreams"
In my book of dreams
In my book of dreams
In my book of dreams

Number every page in silver
Underline in magic marker
Take the name of every prisoner
Yours is there, my word of honor


and my possible favorite, "Gypsy"

Oh, hold me like a baby
That will not fall asleep
Curl me up inside you
And let me hear you through the heat

With a long and slender body
And the sweetest softest hands
And we'll blow away forever soon
And go on to different lands
And please do not ever look for me
But with me you will stay
And you will hear yourself in song
Blowing by one day

Oh, hold me like a baby.
That will not fall asleep
Curl me up inside you
And let me hear you through the heat

GREAT List Logan. I absolutely ADORE the Moody Blues. Oh gee, my nerd is showing. ::Laughs::

Though I totally saw padding as paddling, which means I should stop drinking huh?

Actually I am in a downloading mood, so any song you'd like to throw my way, I would be delighted to take.
