Title of the Song :: Da Vinci's Notebook

i came across this song after about a 4 year hiatus this past weekend when i was road tripping to the shenandoah mountains in va for the weekend (to sit at her boss's condo and work on my thesis...lame!!!) before we left, i grabbed a bunch of old cds i had burned in college and popped one in.

when this song came on, i got super excited. my roommate, on the other hand, was not nearly as impressed w/it as i was....but whatever. i think this song is hilarious. basically, it's a bunch of dudes singing the formula to all boy-band pop songs. it is hilarious. i hope you all enjoy it. for anyone out there than enjoys nerdy music terminology, you will enjoy this song...especially my favorite part/line....which is bolded.



Title of the Song::Da Vinci's Notebook

Declaration of my feelings for you
Elaboration on those feelings
Description of how long these feelings have existed
Belief that no one else could feel the same as I
Reminiscence of the pleasant times we shared
And our relationship's perfection
Recounting of the steps that led to our love's dissolution
Mostly involving my unfaithfulness and lies
Penitent admission of wrongdoing
Discovery of the depth of my affection
Regret over the lateness of my epiphany

Title of the song
Naïve expression of love
Reluctance to accept that you are gone
Request to turn back time
And rectify my wrongs
Repetition of the title of the song

Enumeration of my various transgressive actions
Of insufficient motivation
Realization that these actions led to your departure
And my resultant lack of sleep and appetite
Renunciation of my past insensitive behavior
Promise of my reformation
Reassurance that you still are foremost in my thoughts now
Need for instructions how to gain your trust again
Request for reconciliation
Listing of the numerous tasks that I'd perform
Of physical and emotional compensation

Title of the song
Naïve expression of love
Reluctance to accept that you are gone
Request to turn back time
And rectify my wrongs
Repetition of the title of the song

Acknowledgment that I acted foolishly
Increasingly desperate pleas for your return
Sorrow for my infidelity
Vain hope that my sins are forgivable
Appeal for one more opportunity
Drop to my knees to elicit crowd response
Prayers to my chosen deity
Modulation and I hold a high note...

Title of the song
Naïve expression of love
Reluctance to accept that you are gone
Request to turn back time
And rectify my wrongs
Repetition of the title of the song

Um. You did not just blog about this song. This is absolutely my favorite song. Ever. Do you remember the j-term we discovered it and I made us listen to it twelve ka-jillion times a day? Oh yes. Best song. Ever.
