We never grew up, we just got ourselves free...

I'm back. My sister is okay, probably going to be discharged from hospital today. Thank you all for your support - I've not been online much so I apologise for not answering your emails and text messages, I did read them all and was hugely touched that you went out of your way to give me your best wishes. I was being selfish with my little rant on Saturday, but I think it's okay to be selfish in that situation.

I'm still really tired and still not 100% sure what I'm going to be doing from one minute to the next so I may still be a little slow to respond to anything. I will catch up though.

Anyways, onto other things - the bands meme answers (if I can remember them!

Stereophonics ** - Thousand Trees (guessed by engelsteorra)
I Stopped To Fill My Car Up - this is the last track on Performance and Cocktails and just makes me laugh at how cruel a bastard Kelly Jones can be with his lyrics.

U2 ** - I Will Follow (guessed by velvetwhip
Bullet the Blue Sky - the song that made me a U2 fan. And through the mid to late 80s I was a huge U2 fan - still am, of their early stuff. Up to and possibly including Achtung Baby.

Kane - Spirit Boy (guessed by emeraldswan)

Muse - Butterflies and Hurricaines - Incredible melodies, beautiful lyrics, can't say any more than that. This was guessed by engelsteorra but I completely missed it in her answers. Sorry Sharon!

Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out (guessed by dimlondeiel)

The Killers - Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine Funny/Sad lyrics, great kick off to the album, makes me smile.

Jamie Cullum - All At Sea This is quite possibly my favourite song. Ever. By Anyone. It's just... wonderfully melancholic but somehow hopeful at the same time.

Natasha Beddingfield - Unwritten - There was a time I hated myself for liking Ms Beddingfield, but hey - she's a good songwriter, and this song? Cheesy but it is kinda inspiring.

Deacon Blue - Dignity (kinda guessed by rileysaplank

Kaiser Chiefs - Oh My God (guessed by dimlondeiel)

KT Tunstall - Black Horse and a Cherry Tree KT comes from St Andrews, I knew her in passing when I was there - and I do mean in passing, just a kind f nodding acquaintance. Never in a million years did I think this scrawny kid could come up with something so intriguing.

REM - Nightswimming (guessed by invisionary)

Ocean Colour Scene - One For The Road
"What can you say?
When someone's been taken away,
before they've had their day to fly in the sun?
You say 'Get up and dance -
get up and smile -
get up and drink to the days that are gone in the shortest while'" - sounds morbid, kinda is, but is ultimately positive. Makes me dance in my kitchen. (oh and the subject line for this post is another line from this song)

Snow Patrol ** - Chocolate (guessed by engelsteorra)
Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking - I love everything Snow Patrol have ever done (although the Songs For Polar Bears album is a tad repetitive) but Somewhere a Clock Is Ticking just stikes a nerve in me. Makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end.

Lost Prophets - Burn Burn (guessed by dimlondeiel)

Ultravox - Dancing With Tears In My Eyes (guessed by velvetwhip)

Pearl Jam - Alive - It's quite possibly the cheesiest of theirs I could have picked, but it's still the one that when it comes on the classic rock channels on TV I have to switch the volume way up for.

Tori Amos - Winter - Makes me cry like a baby. Want to see me turn into a blubbery mess? Play this song on a loop.

Green Day - Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) (guessed by rileysaplank)

Divine Comedy - the Certainty of Chance (guessed by engelsteorra
