I said I'd do another stupid top ten list and here it is!
Well, I'd do a top ten...but they take forever to write up. So...top 5 it is!
Top 5 songs that I randomly whistle from time to time! (Not gaming related ed.)
They're not really in order, so I could continue with this at another time.
If I do continue it, tomorrow, it'll probably be only game songs.
1) Somewhere Out There
Now, I don't know anything about the origin of the song(who wrote it/sang it/whatever), but I first heard it in American Tail. To be honest, I never really watched this movie much. Probably only watched it once...a long, long time ago. I don't remember ANYTHING from the movie...except this song(stuck in my head for decades!). And it's either a testament to how great this song is...or how painful it is to me. Honestly, just listening to this song on youtube is killing me inside, like someone is stabbing me in the heart, furiously and repeatedly, with unicorns and rainbows! HAVE AT THEE COLD HEART OF THE MODERN ERA!
Though I can fight back the tears, I can't stop the UNGHing.
It brings to mind a simpler time...when everything was perfect.
2) The Bare Necessities
Something something bare necessities, something something mother's natures recipes. I don't memorize words to songs. And the only way I'd ever sing it...is if I got the lyrics right in front of me. Thankfully, whistling a song is simple and easy. It's got a good rhythm. This movie I watched several times, but I forgot most of the plot by now. However, this song stuck with me...forever.
3) A spoonful of sugar
Ah Mary poppins. I found bedknobs and broomsticks to be kinda scary when I was little. Aw, heck, I found Mary Poppins a bit insane (and some of the things were creepy, but not that much). But I also found it to be quite fun. The songs get stuck in your head and that's all you need to whistle. Did they whistle in the movie? I have a feeling they did. And it's that one-two punch that burns the melody in your head.
4) Hakuna Matata
This song kind of reminds me of the bare necessities. It almost has that same concept to it. Maybe that is what is so enduring about these songs. When you listen to these songs (or maybe watch the video of it), your worries take a back seat. You start thinking, "Hey, maybe life ain't so bad!" HAKUNA MATATA! YEAH! No worries for the rest of your life! SWEEEEET! Life is great!
Then it hits you like a truck: even in the movie, poor simba had to get pulled out of his paradise to go fight skarfacedudelionthing. It's like a metaphor for: When this movie is over...you gotta get back to life too...suckah.
5) Somewhere over the Rainbow
Yet another movie that I've never really watched and still...the song resides within my mind. I'm not sure how it got there. Maybe people used it a lot in commercials or something because I sure as heck don't remember ever watching this movie. In fact, I don't even know the latter half of the song. I only whistle the beginning.
