The Hotdog Man by Tripod
There are so many songs from Tripod that make me laugh including "lingering dad", "stalk you" and "gonna make you happy tonight". However this song "the hot dog man" has always made me laugh no matter how many times I hear. Sure its no surprise at Gatesy's confusion mid song but it still makes me giggle.

For many years I have adored Ani Difranco's work, her combination of folk style music and poetry really speaks to me. Its hard to choose just one song of hers that describes me or speaks to me but there is one line in this piece that just calls to me. In essence I guess its what I hope my writing/poetry/blogs do.
at least, not last time i checked
i'm too easy to roll over
i'm too easy to wreck
i just write about
what i should have done
i just sing
what i wish i could say
and hope somewhere
some woman hears my music
and it helps her through her day"

Dance Myself to Sleep by Bert and Ernie
There are so many songs from my childhood I could pick but I decided to go with a Sesame Street classic from Bert and Ernie. Even to this day the line " I'm getting kinda drowsy so the moment has come, to grab my rubber ducky while the sheep take my chum" I still start laughing. So a big thanks to Jim Henson for all the wonderful memories!

Ok so we all knew my favourite Melbourne artist Barry would get on this list at some point. I just adore this song as it makes me think of my family and how there were always endless cups of tea and slices of cake for anyone who turned up our door.

A great song from Linkin Park that is wonderful to sing really loud on the days when everything gets to you. So turn this up loud and scream the lyrics, trust me it will make you feel better.

Bad Wine and Lemon Cake by The Jane Austen Argument
This song was on a recent release of Amanda's (yes you all knew she'd get in this list at some point) and thankfully she introduced me to The Jane Austen Argument and the beautiful sound of Tom Dickenson. I find his voice so captivating that I could listen to him sing for hours on end. I have actually been lucky enough to not only see The Jane Austen Argument perform here at the Butterfly club in melbourne but also with the amazing Amanda Palmer. This song does make me sad but in a good way, if there is such a thing. It just reaffirms my belief that music is food for the soul as it can lift you up, hold you and often say what you can't seem to. Enjoy!!!!

For my readers please spend some time thinking about your mother and all she has done for you. Don't get wrapped up in the big commercial side, instead remember when a hand made card and a gift when you were little would bring her smiles. Its the fact you took time to think of her, so bake her a cake, make her lunch or simply spend some time doing what she likes.
Much love to all the mum's out there.

Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
This song was recently given to me as part of a tradition I have with my friends. I ask all my friends to give me at least one song/artist that I have never heard of before in an effort to expand my musical taste and to understand what interests my friends. Needless to say every time I hear it I am reminded of them. It makes me think of our friendship and the amazing time we have together not to mention that I know we will always be there for each other, as we have been through a lot together. So to my dear friend if your reading this THANK YOU!!!!

Rebecca Black - Friday
Well this doesn't really need much explaining, apart from there is a reason why I don't like the mass produced music of the 'younger generation'. Sure there are some great muso's coming up in the ranks but this is not one of them. So I apologize in advance if you listen to this song, but hey I did warn you!!!! LMAO
