three and three and three. day 3.

A Momma’s View invited me to participate in the three-day-three-quote thingy (my ridiculous name for it). Thanks again for thinking of me! [Rules at bottom of post.]

Day Three – Lyrics edition
I have music obsessions… that change. The first two are current obsessions. The last one is a forever obsession. Choosing a few words from song lyrics is a huge challenge — I kind of want to pick the whole song. And I kind of feel bad this isn’t a funny post… my first two were kind of amusing. 

The National | Slipped 

I’m having trouble inside my skin
I tried to keep my skeletons in…
[Seriously, I could go on… this entire song is perfect.]

Hozier | From Eden 

Innocence died screaming
[I just love this line… three words and it’s perfect. And the whole song is perfect.]

The Smiths | Still Ill

Does the body rule the mind
Or does the mind rule the body?
I don’t know…
[It’s The Smiths. It’s Morrissey. Of course the lyrics are amazing. I used to have this on a tee shirt. Hell, it’s probably up in the attic.]

Thanks for reading… this concludes my three days! 

Three rules:
• Thank the person who nominated you.
• Post 1-3 quotes for 3 consecutive days.
• Nominate 3 blogs each day for 3 consecutive days.
. [Well, I pretty much never do the nominating part… I don’t want anyone to feel obligated… sometimes I don’t even participate… so play along if you feel like it… or just laugh at my quotes.]

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Love Morrissey! Well Hozier, too. Not that familiar with The National… H didn’t want to watch them the other night, either…

  5. Well, I do like Hozier 🙂 I’ll listen to the other two but don’t know them. Big surprise, right?
