This is a twist on the Letter Meme. Instead of coming up with ten items for a certain letter, you come up with five song titles for a certain letter and explain why you picked them. If interested then leave a comment. I'll give you a letter. You post this blurb in your journal along with your list.

[ profile] delurker gave me the letter "I". Here's my list, with YSI links:

1) I Am A Scientist by The Dandy Warhols
I was *obsessed* with this song for months, right about the time I was getting into SGA so it will forever be associated with Rodney and Radek for me. It's a great song to be hyper to - or to make you hyper, in my case. It's got a lot of "woo woo"s, somewhat reminiscent of "Song 2" by Blur.
In me the scientist always stuck on always trying this. I try to live on science alone. Analysis and freaky sensitivity. We gotta live on science alone.

2) I'll Be That Girl by Barenaked Ladies
At first I liked this song because of the genderbendy-ness, but then I realized that's not really what it's about. It's about a guy (presumably) who wants a girl who completely ignores him. He proposes that if he was her, then she's be interested.
I'll be that girl, you would be right over. And if I were a field, you would be in clover. And if I were the sun, you would be in shadow. And if I had a gun, there'd be no tomorrow...

3) I Want You To Want Me by Letters to Cleo
From the "10 Things I Hate About You" soundtrack; it's the song at the very end where they're playing on the roof of the school. It's a really up-beat song, with a bit of a punk feel.
Shine up my old brown shoes, I put on a brand new shirt, I get home early from work - if you say that you love me.

4) I'm Not a Fucking Drag Queen by Peter Outerbridge
If you haven't realized by now... I really like soundtracks. This song is from the movie "Better Than Chocolate," it's sung by the mtf character (played by Peter Outerbridge.) It's good to sing along with on those days when no one seems to get your gender!
I'll break your fucking leg, sir, and then I'll pirouette while I mend my transgender heart!

5) I Do It For Your Love by Paul Simon
Nice mellow song and one of my favorite "romantic" songs. It has a comfy feel.
Found a rug at an old junk shop. Brought it home to you. Along the way the colors ran, the orange bled the blue.
So I mentioned the slashiness of Boa vs. Python, right? Well, here's the proof. Under the cut... )
Also, I uploaded a short (~1 min) clip of a speed-reading contest between Amanda Tapping and David Hewlett: 8.7MB avi.
