To my family and blog friends: yesterday’s post of assigning an old song to you as descriptive of one or more of your attributes was NOT intended as an in-depth psychological analysis and definition of your character. (Many of you ARE characters, but that’s another post.)
You should see the emails I got from some! You’d think I’d called them dirty names.
Well, I DID come down a little hard of Karyn. But hey, that’s what we DO to each other. (In a figurative sense, you dirty-minded people!)
I thought of some other possibilities for some, such as “Rockin’ Robin” by Bobby Day for Robin. I had some other plays on names. (Not for Schnoodlepooh, however. That name is a play on itself, I think.)
If you enjoyed the attempts and actually remember (or admit that you have heard) some of those songs, go to Mike’s blog and try his song title contest. There’s a link in his sidebar to the answers. I wonder how long that took him to write and chronicle!
Anyway, even though my post was a quick and shallow effort, it still took a lot of time. Made me glad my blogroll is as short as it is! I’ll keep adding to it, but probably won’t try to go down it again assigning song titles.
Viki wanted to know if I was making up a meme. Since I still can’t pronounce that word (I assume it’s “MEEM,” but at least one person told me it has two syllables, as in “MEE – MEE”) I don’t know WHAT I’ve created.
However, it IS a good idea. If you like it, I challenge you to pick, oh, say, 5 bloggers from your “frequent read” list, assign a song to them for whatever reason you like, put the list on your own blog and then tag each of them to do the same.
There! I just created a meme. (WOO – HOO!)
WARNING: Be advised that your participation in this meme may be hazardous to your blogging health if your targets disagree with your assessment of their “attributes” and your resulting choice of a song. You’re liable to get some nasty emails wanting to know why you didn’t assign them “You’ve Got What it Takes” (Brooks Benton and Dinah Washington) instead of “Kathy’s Clown” (Everly Brothers), or maybe “Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool” (Connie Francis).
