Best School in the West

I have the fight song from my ELEMENTARY school stuck in my head tonight, which is somewhat ironic considering that most of my brain cells have been sucked out by pregnancy and children. Also ironically, it is the only one I remember - not any of the 3 high school ones, though I'm pretty sure that one or two of them had the same tune (a very simple version of On Wisconsin, in case you were wondering).

The words (for posterity since I'm pretty sure you won't find them anywhere else):
Naches Trail, Naches Trail
Best school in the west.
Raise your green and golden colors,
for we are the B-E-S-T.
Naches Trail, Naches Trail,
Up with Blazer pride.
(humming, humming, it might come back to me, dang it)
for Naches Trail.

I wax poetic about Pandora

I heart, heart, heart Pandora.

I have a station based on Somebody by Depeche Mode and tonight they played the live version followed by This Years Love by David Gray. I will go to bed happy. If only I could burn a CD from Pandora.

My other stations: Chasing Cars, Dead Milkmen, Addicted, Harry Connick Jr., The Lady in Red, They Might Be Giants, Kenny G (for Muzak-esqeness), Silent Lucidity, Rent, Jason Mraz, and Depeche Mode (which plays much different music than the Somebody station).

BRILLIANT!!! And perfect for me since I never know what or who for the songs I like in passing/listening to real radio. For instance, I had no idea that Ben Folds has done a cover of Tiny Dancer. It is lovely too. Also, it tells me why I like certain music AND it's right. Every time I check out the "why" behind the song choice, I say yep, that's right, but I never would have thought of that. I can't even imagine how long it took/takes to analyze so much music.

I'll do the other 2 later...
