Wise Up
« on: May 23, 2007, 10:51:15 PM »
Not sure if anyone saw the flicker “Magnolia” a few years back…  Its about how all these separate lives and experiences come flying together in the end from a twisted mess to some actual closure.   That you are simply not in control of others and in some ways, your own life.  One thing about being hiv positive, I have to work on Wising Up and getting a bit smarter in how I handle myself.   So, just give up fighting it and go with the flow…   I see this movie a bit differently now with the turn of events.   

Here is one of Aimee Mann’s songs with some notables singing along from the movie…..

It's not
What you thought
When you first began it
You got
What you want
Now you can hardly stand it though,
By now you know
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

You're sure
There's a cure
And you have finally found it
You think
One drink
Will shrink you 'til you're underground
And living down
But it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

Prepare a list of what you need
Before you sign away the deed
'Cause it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
So just...give up

E-

I really love this song- in fact, most all I've heard from Aimee Mann.  The film, too.  I didn't enjoy it as much on the first go around.  Thought all of the independent scenes were brilliant, but the whole didn't capture me as well.  This was probably due to the person I saw the film with...he was totally the chick flick and cartoon sort & was not entertained at all, so that probably dampened my experience with it at first.  I've seen it twice since and find more in it each time.  I almost beat you to the punch with the song, though!  I've got a thread on her where I post songs that I have a particular attachment to, and I almost posted this one just a couple of nights ago!

Great song.  Thanks for the post!

Aimee Mann's father sold real estate in Richmond ("Your Mann in the Fan!") and we always used to make fun of Til Tuesday in college.  To this day I can't listen to her.

Philly, totally understand and it is probably just a "coincidence"  ;D  The beginning of the movie is what hooked me....  I am surprised they didn't have a character with hiv or aids in the movie... Yeah a pos Tom Cruise?? Doubt it back then....


"This is not a coincidence...... In your humble narrators opinion, oh no, this cannot be that" ;D

I'm a total Aimee Mann fan. I have all her music, including 'Til Tuesday. I've seen her concerts. I want her music played at my funeral.

This is my Aimee Mann "I got HIV" song. Of course she probably wasn't think of HIV when she wrote it but I was thinking of it when I heard it.

Humpty Dumpty

Say you were split, you were split in fragments
and none of the pieces would talk to you
Wouldn't you want to be who you had been
well, baby I want that, too

So better take the keys and drive forever
Staying won't put these futures back together
All the perfect drugs and superheroes
wouldn't be enough to bring me up to zero

Baby you're great, you've been more than patient
saying it's not a catastrophe
but I'm not the girl you once put your faith in
just someone who looks like me

So better take the keys and drive forever
Staying won't put these futures back together
All the perfect drugs and superheroes
wouldn't be enough to bring me up to zero

So get out while you can

Get out while you can
Baby, I'm pouring quicksand
And sinking is all I had planned
So better just go

Oh, better take the keys and drive forever
Staying won't put these futures back together
All the perfect drugs and superheroes
wouldn't be enough to bring me up to zero

All the king's horses and all the king's men
couldn't put baby together again
All the king's horses and all the king's men
couldn't put baby together again

Here she is performing it live: http://youtube.com/watch?v=u6yYc8OFm8g
