I have a bowl of fruit…

[this started as a test, primarily a test… if this were a real entry, you would know by the blaring klaxon siren and the presence of interesting content]

Are you familiar with Pandora? It’s an intriguing music service, where you can set up a custom radio station seeded with songs you like. They use some algorithm to find music you should like based on what you’ve rated. I’ve found some really interesting music I never would have known about otherwise this way. I’ve been especially taken by the lyrics to a song title “Lucky” by Halie Loren. So I’m testing out this scrolling lyrics widget from LyricsMode.com to see if it works…

Drat. It doesn’t seem to, and poking around in the wordpress FAQ I see they don’t allow flash widgets, so I guess i’ll just post the words. (Or follow the Lucky link here or above, so you can see what it would look like in a context that allowed flash widgets.)

Because after all, I’m lucky!

Halie Loren – Lucky

LUCKY

I have a bowl of fruit
A sink that rarely leaks
When I breathe I fill my lungs with air that’s sweet
I have a soft bed
A closet full of clothes
When I step outside it’s on soil where grass can grow

And I have, I have, I have, I have…
Enough
And I need, I need, I need, I need…
Nothing else much, I’m

Lucky—this a lucky life
I see it more and more how
Lucky is a relative state of mind
And as long as I concede
That I’ve got all that I need
To be satisfied, I’ll feel lucky
All my life

I have a friend to call
A sister to worry about me
When I fall, I know someone will help me get back on my feet

And I have, I have, I have, I have, I have…
More than I know
And I need, I need, I need, I need, I need…
Nothing else to show I’m

Lucky—this is a lucky life
I see it more and more how
Lucky is a relative state of mind
And as long as I concede that I’ve got all that I need to be satisfied
I’ll feel lucky all my life.

Sometimes when times when get hard it’s hard to believe
Life’s not a dry well
But seeing what fades, what lasts, gives me reason to remind myself…
Lucky is a state of mind
My friend, I’m so

Lucky—this is a lucky life
I see it more and more how
Lucky is a relative state of mind
And as long as I concede
That I’ve got all that I need
To be satisfied, I’ll feel lucky
All my life.

I have a bowl of fruit…

    Ooh, I like that.

    Funny you mention Pandora because I had not heard of it until I read about it here. And then I was reading the August issue of Smart Money magazine and they had a short article about Pandora.

    Wow — twilight zone music. I just posted about Pandora in my “23 Things” project blog for work!

    Ruth, I thought you might like the sentiments expressed in that song (even knowing that my state of “lucky” is much cushier than your “lucky”!)

    Susan, you know what they say: great minds think alike! :^)
