So incredibly fitting


I nabbed the new Dixie Chicks CD this afternoon when I was doing the final grocery shopping to tide the Momenator and hubs over until I get home. I listened to it while I cleaned up the kitchen and wrapped my sister's gifts for the BAY BAY.

I have always loved me some music, but every once in a while a lyric or a chorus resonates with me in a way that other just as fabulous songs just did not. That is what the song "Not Ready To Make Nice" was for me. They managed to capture just how I feel and will probably continue to feel for a long time to come. This particular part is what caught me.

I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell and
I don't have time to go round and round and round
It's too late to make it right
I probably wouldn't if I could
'Cause I'm mad as hell
Can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should

Sometimes, doing what everyone else thinks is the best thing or the proper thing is not the right thing for you. This is so my life right now.

OK, I am officially outtie. I have 5 more reports to finish up before I pack. The good news is that I found shoes for both the wedding and rehearsal din din. Go me.

Latah gatahs.

I can't wait to get this CD. I have all their other ones....I think all three of them are a great example of strong women.

Your blog has officially been banned by country radio! Sorry, when they brought Texas into their debate, they lost me.

Have fun this weekend!

GO CHICKS! I think I love them even more since they spoke up about how they feel!

Safe travels to you.

Love! this cd. Love! the Chicks.

Stirred the proverbial pot a bit when I wrote about wanting to hump Natalie Maines' leg.

Happy voy-age SFG.

I love their new album--especially "Not Ready To Make Nice". It fits so many situations in my life...

My favorite line, though, is:
"It's a sad, sad story when a mother will teach her daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger..."

Just says something about today's society...

I am glad you posted this.
This morning they performed live on the ABC morning show.
I cried when I heard them sing that song.
Being from Nashville and living here I am so fucking pissed b/c country radio will not play their music anymore.
It sucks.
I heart the Dixie Chicks.

Ok, you've got me sold! I love Dixie Chicks as well and was slightly tentative about purchasing thier latest release until I heard a reliable review about it. I've been burned on some of my other favorites... the new Jewel CD was less than what I expected and some others I've paid full price for just weren't worth it. Thank you girl!!! HUGS!!!!
