Because I love lists (And 100 Days of Kindness, Day 36)

The playlist I was listening to at work today was very enjoyable (and also largely inspired by the movie The Big Chill).

Here’s a little sampling:

1. ‘The Weight’ The Band

2. ‘Beast of Burden’ The Rolling Stones

3. ‘Killer Queen’ Queen

4.’Ain’t Too Proud to Beg’ The Temptations

5.’Good Lovin” by The Rascals

6.’Tracks of my Tears’ Smokey Robinson

7. ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’ Aretha Franklin

8. ‘I Heard it Through the Grapevine’ Marvin Gaye

9. ‘Gloria’ Van Morrison

10. ‘Fool In The Rain’ Led Zeppelin


My kindness today:

Colin and I went to go pick up my car tonight from the shop. They were closed, but I had paid over the phone and asked them to leave my keys in the car. When I got there I noticed that not only did they fix it, but they thoroughly cleaned it – inside and out! That baby was shining like the top of the Chrysler Building!

I only expected them to fix the fuel pump, not go the extra mile to clean the car, so I’m very happy. I really appreciate when people do such a good job. So I called and left a message to thank them for their A+ service. :)


Movies & Music

I love movies, I love music and I love lists. So, here is a top ten list of some amazing songs from some movies: (Without repeating any from the last music list…)

1. “Joy to the World” Three Dog Night, from The Big Chill

2. “Jump Around” House of Pain, from Mrs. Doubtfire

3.Β  Both of these count as 1 entry – “Oh Maria” and “Joyful, Joyful” from Sister Act 1 & 2

4. “Loverboy” Silvia & Mickey, from Dirty Dancing

5. “Jump in the Line [Shake Senora]” Harry Belafonte, Beetlejuice

6. “You’re My Best Friend” Queen, The Breakup

7. “Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta” Geto Boys, from Office Space

8. “Twist and Shout” The Beatles, from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

9. “The Babysitting Blues” Elizabeth Shue, from Adventures in Babysitting

10. “Blinded by the Light” Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, from Blow

There are a million other great ones. I keep thinking of more, but I’ll control myself and keep it to 10.

What’s one song you love & every time you hear it, it reminds you of a certain movie?
