    Oh my gosh that boxing video is way too funny…which is not really what you think when you’re talking boxing! As for the songs – my husband sings “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” to the boys on a daily basis and they HATE the message, as you can imagine!

      I just couldn’t get over the announcers kind of trashing him – it was nationally televised in the states – what a platform to go down on!

      Your boys are not going to ever put that song on a greatest hits list, are they?

    I absolutely love all of these, especially Happiness Is A Warm Gun. Seriously, I think you know I love the Beatles and that song is truly one of my favorites of all time from them :)

      Me, too. Have you watched Across the Universe? The whole soundtrack is Beatles music (performed by the cast) – their version of Happiness is amazing, too.

  3. Des is enjoying the boxing video with me!
    I don’t know all of these, except “September” (of course) and the Beatles and Stones. Des is wearing a Stones shirt today, in fact! He looks very handsome.

      I’ll be he does look handsome! How cool is he in a rock t-shirt, anyway? I hope you liked the other two. Based on what I’ve heard you refer to…I would think you’d like that Gov’t Mule song. It’s hippy and jammy and just cool.

  4. Greatest hits? Oh Steph, I wouldn’t even know where to start. Probably with my sing along songs from the eighties…

      One of these days I just want you to make up a playlist – just for my entertainment. Please!

    I’m listening to “September” right now – that song just makes me happy! I have the urge to dance right now, and because I’m home alone, I may just do that.

      I hope you did. It’s totally a song for dancing!

    Okay, I can’t watch the boxing video until the boy leaves the room, but I just wanted to say every single one of these songs could have been on my greatest hits. Like I said, my criteria is a song I wouldn’t change the station, and not only didn’t I change the station. But so I could listen to your mix I did some email checking. So your mixtape friends can thank you that I’m behind ;-)

      Hahaha! Glad you liked it, I wouldn’t change any of these either. They don’t say anything NSFW in the video I’ve just never heard announcers talk like that before, when he “sings” that one part I die laughing every time.

    I love that Beatles song (and most of the White Album for that matter). As for You Can’t Always Get What you Want – I always think of it in association with weddings and sitting at a bar in between ceremony and reception with friends as we tried to come up with the “worst” wedding song ever (because so many slow songs are actually really depressing and so you can’t really use them for a wedding dance). This was our top pick for worst song to choose. I now smile whenever I hear it.

    I didn’t know the others – so thanks for the new music (to me).

      It is a bad wedding song. I always picture a funeral – I guess, probably, because of The Big Chill.

  8. Your mentioning hits and boxing now has me singing “The Boxer.” Lie la lie …

      Another great song! How did I not think of that?

    That’s one of my most favorite Beatles songs, ever. And September…? It was the theme song of the Spring of my senior year in high school. When we heard it, it meant it was going to be a good night.

      There is just something about September that makes a person happy. Totally with you on Happiness, too. Love it.

    We all have moments like the Shelby streetfighter, when we realize we’re in over our heads. Only ours aren’t usually on national TV, with a fit Brit jabbing your face with well-placed right hooks.

    I have a post-it note on my computer of four songs I hope to somehow leave for my girls to put on their devices and listen to if they ever need me near them. Those are my greatest hits:

    Hey Jude, The Beatles
    The Heart of the Matter, John Mayer
    The Middle, Jimmy Eats World
    Mr. Blue Sky, Electric Light Orchestra

    I can’t believe there’s another female blogger who likes boxing! My husband managed boxers and promoted boxing shows for a long time. Boxers are actually very nice people.

      I’ll bet they are nice people. Or some of them are, as with anything. I’ll also bet your husband had a blast – you can’t get more energy than at a live sports event, it’s crazy.
