I've always been a little jealous of women who have names that are featured in song titles. The Sherrys (yes sherry, I mean you), the Angie's, hell even the Enids. I've always felt a little left out that no one would ever cheesily dedicate a song to me, on the sheer sake that we share a name. No, never happened. The closest I ever came was a song by Diesel Boy called Andy Stern.
When People hear my name, the last thing I want them to be reminded of is a song that contains the line He's short and stoned and he's never on time/ He ain't been laid since 1989
As great of as song as I think that is, not the musical earmage (that's my take on audial images -- Did I not say I had the power to make up random words?) I want people to get when they hear my name.
I've just found not one but TWO songs that share my name. There is a song called Andrea by Blue Rodeo, off the album The Days In Between. I can't seem to find the lyrics online, which kind of sucks. But the song exists, it's on their website. I'm downloading like 7 BR albums, apparently the album it's on is not one of them.
On top of that, there is a song by MxPx called Andrea off the album Life in General.
The lyrics to this one are cheesy but cute... Something I could handle being associated with.
Meeting you was just so unexpected
I guess I was scared of being rejected
Since you were so nice
I wouldn't think twice
I'd give it all away for one more day with you
If ever there was a girl to be engaged to
That amazing girl would have to be you
Before we hung out
Don't know how I lived without
Your beautiful face - like God's amazing grace
Andrea, I say your name and all I can do is
Think about the way you smiled
And kinda sorta held my hand
Went out for coffee in what must have been the smallest town in Kentucky
Andrea, we walked together
Down the dirt road by the bridge
That we sat by each other
Talked about a few things
You looked at me I looked at you
Before you know, it's time to go!
I mean it's seriously like 9th grade poetry lyrics, but the point is, it exists! It's a good day to be an Andrea.
