This weekend we had a slumber party. We ate obscene amounts of guacamole, queso and creamy jalapeno and then washed it down with some amazing enchiladas, we attempted to learn the parts of "Beat It" where we usually just stand there and "freestyle", and we you tubed a lot of the classic songs that we still brag about knowing all the words to. It's one of those things where if our husbands could be flies on the wall they would probably.....well, I actually can't even speculate as to their thoughts and actions because I have no idea what they would have thought. I have to feel they wouldn't be TERRIBLY surprised. In any event, furniture was moved, microphones were created (thank you Wii controllers) and we had a repeat performance of "Music Video" which we had not seen since college.

While we were wrapping up our defeated attempt to learn the really tricky parts of "Beat it" and "Oops I Did it Again" we decided to stick to what we know. And what we know just happens to be every.single.word. to "Fancy" by Reba and "Stay" by Lisa Loeb. I will say that it's amazing that 4 girls, growing up in very separate lives can still remember every word, every inflection, every sigh. We were so proud of ourselves that we decided to continue.

So here are a few songs that without a shadow of a doubt, I know every word to. Some I haven't heard in 10 years (until Saturday night) and it still comes rushing back like a flood. Like TLC "Waterfalls". Man, I can't believe that rap part never left me. "I seen a rainbow yesterday but too many storms have come and gone leavin' a trace of not one God given ray is it because my life is 10 shades of gray I pray all 10 fade away..." You get the point. So in the event that my time was up and I had to Karaoke....I would want to choose from this list. And I wouldn't need the words! Take that.
  • Fancy. Reba.
  • Stay. Lisa Loeb
  • I saw the Sign. Ace of Base
  • We Didn't Start the Fire. Billy Freaking Joel.
  • Anything by Elton John. Anything.
  • Elephant Love Song Medley. From Moulan Rouge.
  • Garth Brooks. All of it.
  • Love Shack. B52s
  • A Moment Like This. Kelly Clarkson.
  • Shoop. Salt and Peppa.
  • Baby Got Back. Who sings that?
  • Popular. Wicked.
  • Hold On. Wilson Phillips.
  • 80's Madonna.
  • Ice Ice Baby. Vanilla Ice.
  • You do now this list could go on and on and on.......

I don't have the courage to sing karaoke. I tagged you on my blog.

"...seldom praise Him for the sunny days. And though His promise is true, only my faith can undo, the many chances I blew, to bring my life to anew. Clear blue and unconditional skies have cast the tears from my eyes, no more lonely cries...."

LOLOLOL!!! I spent the entire flight to Colorado one spring break learning that song, and the rap!!!! I still bust it out at parties- its really impressive.
