A Little Challenge For Ya'll  
My playlist for LS grows larger and larger, but that makes me wonder: Has anyone recently heard a song that made you think of Little Secrets? I'm in need a few new selections to refresh the Muse. Or tell me which songs (other than our tried and true ones) make you think of the fandom. With Act Five coming up and two (maybe three) new oneshots coming up, I need more Muse food. Tell me, tell me!

I'm not 100% sure why, but Skillet's Yours To Hold always made me think of LS. But that's the only one that comes to mind right now.

A song that always reminds me of Lois and Clark/Suerman/Kal-El is Ladies Love Country Boys by Trace Adkins. Here are the words incase you don't listin to Country music. (I got the lyrics from http://www.cowboylyrics.com/lyrics/adkins-trace/ladies-love-country-boys-17310.html)

Artist/Band: Adkins Trace
Lyrics for Song: Ladies Love Country Boys
Lyrics for Album: Dangerous Man
(This is for all you sophisticated ladies out there)

She grew up in the city in a little subdivision,
Her daddy wore a tie, Momma never fried a chicken,
Ballet, Straight A’s, Most likely to succeed

They bought her a car after graduation
Sent her down south for some higher education
Put her on the fast track to a law degree

Now she’s comin home to visit
holdin the hand
Of a wild-eyed boy
with a farmer’s tan

And shes ridin in the middle of his pickup truck
Blarin Charlie Daniels yellin, “Turn it up!”
They raised her up a lady
but there’s one thing they couldn’t avoid
Ladies love country boys

(You know its true)

Yeah, you know momma’s and daddy’s want better for their daughters
Hope they’ll settle down with a doctor or a lawyer
In their uptown, ball gown, hand-me-down royalty

They never understand
why their princess falls
For some camouflage britches
and a southern boy drawl

Or why she’s ridin in the middle of a pickup truck
Blarin Hank Jr. yellin, “Turn it up!”
They raised her up a lady
but there’s one thing they couldn’t avoid
Ladies love country boys

(oooh, get country with it)

You can train ‘em
You can try to teach ‘em right from wrong
But it’s still gonna turn ‘em on

When they go ridin in the middle of a pickup truck
Blarin Lynyrd Skynyrd yellin, “Turn it up!”
You can raise her up a lady
but there’s one thing you jus can’t avoid
Ladies love country boys

They love us country boys
Ooooooh yeah
It's that country thing you know


Hope this helps.

*looks up in wonder* That's amazing! I have a third of these already on the LS soundtrack, but this is the kind of music I listen to. Thanks so much for the huge list of suggestions!
Syd Gill: Bunny - wheee!sydgill on July 13th, 2007 07:03 pm (UTC)
This is the kind of music you listen to? Really? I've seen some of your song choices and I didn't see any of this genre...maybe I missed them...I was worried that I was giving you a whole list of junk...but I did it anyways - LOL!

So you friended me? HOORAY!!!

Oh...I just downloaded a whole bunch of new music - I'll keep you updated if I find anything that might work for you guys! You of course use www.frostwire.com right? And another awesome program: www.lastfm.com - it streams music based on your preferences...I would say it's a writers best friend...all you do is put in the artist you like and it'll keep playing similar bands - also a great way to find new music.

Another site that is actually probably better than lastfm but I can't use because i'm in Canada is www.pandora.com - I didn't get to use it too much, but what I did see was awesome...they banned my IP address after 3 days *pouts*
Lois: Lois Lost In Thoughtkalalanekent on July 17th, 2007 05:05 pm (UTC)
Let's put it this way, I'm about a third of the way through downloading your playlist. And Belief is going to be written to two suggestions made by you: Here We Are and Straightjacket Feeling and a song from one of my Scooby's videos, Belief by Gavin Degraw. I'm sure the rest of the list will be gold, especially since a good portion of my favorite artists are on there.

Thanks, ecabs!
Syd Gill: turn it up soundwavesydgill on July 17th, 2007 05:50 pm (UTC)
Yay! That's wonderful! I love finding good music that inspires me, so I'm glad you found something in that list that helps! Let me know if you need anything else! And if you can't find something email or yahoo me, I'll send space it to you :D

Syd Gillsydgill on July 17th, 2007 05:53 pm (UTC)
Oohh...Ache by James Carrington is SOOO SOOO good...but it's really hard to find...if there are others you can't get let me know...I'll do a music share for the whole f-list :D
Loiskalalanekent on July 19th, 2007 12:22 am (UTC)
Thanks, honey. And thanks again for those tracks. They're helping me write Lois' section of Belief amazingly well.
Syd Gill: Aladin - applausesydgill on July 19th, 2007 12:49 am (UTC)
YAY! That's sooo cool! I can't wait to read it!
Syd Gill: Bunny - wheee!sydgill on July 19th, 2007 12:53 am (UTC)
Oopsie! I forgot to say this in my last post...I found another good song for you: Cure My Tragedy by COLD :D I think this might work for your scene!

Here's the lyrics:

Remember all the times that we used to play
You were lost and I would save you
I dont think those feeling will ever fade
You born a part of me

Wont you cure my tragedy
Wont you cure my tragedy
Dont take her smile away from me
Shes broken and Im far away

Wont you cure my tragedy
Wont you cure my tragedy
Then I hope that you can hear me scream
Wont you cure my tragedy

When I sit and think of the days we shared
And the nights you covered before me
Every little thing that I ever did
You would stand by me
Everytime you would cry it would take my wind
My heart would break
If I could be strong like you were for me
You are my faith

Wont you cure my tragedy
Wont you cure my tragedy
Dont take her smile away from me
Shes broken and Im far away
If you made the world a stage for me
Then I hope that you could hear me scream
Can you hear me scream
Can you hear me scream

Wont you cure my tragedy
Wont you cure my tragedy
Dont take her smile away from me
Shes broken and Im far away
If you made the world a stage for me

I cant take this anymore
I cant take this anymore
Wont you take and give her pain to me
Cause my whole life Ive made mistakes
Loiskalalanekent on July 19th, 2007 01:05 am (UTC)
I'll have to look that one up. That definitely sounds good.
Syd Gillsydgill on July 19th, 2007 01:43 am (UTC)
Yup...it definitely has promise...

*removes self from lurking*
A song that reminded me of the fandom when I first heard it was Why Say Anything Nice, by the Barenaked Ladies on the album Barenaked Ladies are Men. I think it's the line about the glasses, and the characteristic of Kal-El to be strong and silent in his Superman guise. It could also apply to the beginning of LS, when Lois is keeping it all bottled up inside and refers to Kal-El on her cellphone as That Damn Man. And then What a Good Boy by the Barenaked Ladies on the album Gordon, for Lois' and Kal-El's relationship. Er, sorta. And a song that reminded me of your hospital scene in Little Secrets was What Sarah Said, by Deathcab for Cutie, on the album Plans.

I have seriously considered songfics with that first one. Hmm.

Here's a link to the lyrics for What A Good Boy
http://artists.letssingit.com/barenaked-ladies-lyrics-what-a-good-boy-swxhfzt

And a link to the lyrics for What Sarah Said
http://artists.letssingit.com/death-cab-for-cutie-lyrics-what-sarah-said-lxvvn2m

And the link to Why Say Anything Nice? is a very, very long link for some odd reason, and the site has stupid pop-ups, so I'll save you from them by posting here:

Why'd you put your dress shoes on if you didn't come to dance?
Frankly, I'd be on my own if I thought I'd stand a chance
Why'd you take your glasses off if you don't intend to fight?
Frankly, I'd be on my own if I thought I'd last the night

No screaming or fighting, no scratching or biting
We're just shaking hands goodnight
Sullen and silent, emotionally violent
I waited a while and nothing, nothing

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?
Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?

Why'd you put your backpack on if you won't just take a hike?
Frankly, I'd be out the door if you hadn't sold my bike

No fencing or sparring, no bruising or scarring
And no 'au revoiring' yet
No communication, just alienation
I've tried to be patient but nothing, nothing

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?
Why say anything nice?

Say anything nice, a simple device
That makes everything beautiful just ordinary
Nice can come at a price, forever imbued with all this boredom
Sacrifice can only suffice when something is beautiful

After all the resentment, all the discontentment
The flowers you sent meant nothing, nothing

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?
Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all? (Why say anything nice?...)
You can say nothing at all
Woo-hoo-hoo
Nothing at all
Woo-hoo-hoo
You can say nothing at all
Woo-hoo-hoo
Nothing at all

Hope your muse finds these satisfactory!

Re: *removes self from lurking*
Welcome! And thanks for de-lurking on this one, as they're both a great fit. Both songs just got saved. Stick around!

Will do.
