32

I think it's funny that the first song that comes up in my iTunes shuffle is Otis Redding's "I've Got Dreams to Remember." Sample lyrics: I've got dreams to remember / Rough dreams / Bad dreams / Don't make me suffer. What a way to start one's birthday!

So I fired up "19" by the Old 97's as an antidote.

After that, I'm going for "17" by Winger. I'm so not even kidding.

Hmm. What else? "Thirteen" by Big Star would work. Any other songs of this ilk?

My 4 year old cousin Sally just emailed me a happy birthday note:

Happy birthday Paul. Another great number song you may know of is 74'-75' by The Connells. Good stuff.

Do not forget Sweet Little Sixteen by Chuck B.

Or Eighteen and Life by Skid Row.

Okay, forget the Skid Row.

Happy Birthday.

Paul said...

I meant to go back and add "18 and Life."

Skid Row in the house!

Happy Birthday! I shall write you a poem. Be forewarned: it shall suck (the poem, not your birthday, which will ROCK).

Big love,
your friend me

Happy belated birthday, Paul--I hope it was a good day.
