6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon #4

WARNING : Today’s edition is really “80’s ballad-y” sappy today, especially the first one – sorry folks! haha!

If there’s nothing on the TV on the weekends I switch over to MAX or Smooth on Foxtel …
Smooth is just nice, easy listening music and MAX has some awesome countdowns. Today it’s “Most Requested 80’s”

Anyhow, one of the clips got me googling a long forgotten song this afternoon and I noticed a clanger ‘bookmark’ in my life song on the side so I decided to play 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon leaping off from it!
{If anyone can guess the bookmark moment I have a box of chocs for you! ๐Ÿ˜€ Comment if you can guess! It’s a pearler, I promise haha}

Here it is ~ #1 Michael Bolton, Said I Loved You … But I Lied :

โค

From there I jumped to my favourite Dirty Dancing song! #2 Patrick Swayze, She’s Like the Wind :

{The clip on this isn’t the video clip, it’s more of a Patrick tribute which I am ok with … love him still!}

โค

The next one is one of my all time favourite songs! #3 John Lennon, Imagine :

โค

From there, one of my all time fav bands. One of my all time fave songs of theirs. Nuff said ~ #4 U2, With or Without You :

โค

Oh.eM.Gee! This group we such a favourite of my teens!! #5 Roxette, Listen to Your Heart :

How sexy was Marie in this film clip?! Barefoot, simple black singlet dress. *sigh*

โค

Last jump ~ #6 Bon Jovi, Always :

Love, love, love Jon ๐Ÿ™‚

6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon ~ Issue #2

Ok, Sew I told you last time I did this I found the perfect spot to launch off my next 6 Degrees of YouTube Game.

Here it is. I’m starting at a big Bookmark Of My Life song – Train, Drops of Jupiter {#1}

Second pick is from one of my fave 80’s/90’s bands! Darius Rucker has in the last few years forged a successful solo R&B and then Country Music career, but I love this one with his old band. It’s Hootie And The Blowfish, Let Her Cry {#2}

The next one I clicked just cos I like it ๐Ÿ™‚ Matchbox 20, 3AM {#3}

Hmmm where to go now? Maybe another just cos I like it ๐Ÿ™‚ Semisonic, Closing Time {#4}

I could go with another Semisonic. I quite like them … But here’s Soul Asylum, Runaway Train {#5}

hmmmm the final pick!
I love this band they are one of my all time favourites! – U2, With Or Without You {#6}

*EDIT* THink I have the vids fixed now, sorry! x

*Sigh* I’m off to watch some more memories while I sew! Maybe I’ll start with a funny Vid next time ๐Ÿ™‚

6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Have you heard of “The 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon”?
Or for the purists, “The 6 Degrees of Separation” ๐Ÿ˜‰
It’s a cool theory that suggests that everyone is a mere 6 steps from each other.

The all-wise and all-knowing Wikipedia explains it thus :
“Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare.”

Sometimes while I am sewing and there’s nothing good on TV, I play my “6 Degrees of YouTube” game where I start at any point I feel like – Music video, Gag reel, Cute kitten video, Movie Trailer, anything. I’ve even started from links friends put up on facebook etc …

Anyhow, the idea is that you start on the page you choose and you can only move onto a video from the choices listed on the right hand side of that screen.

Last night, reminded by a friends little one singing along to it, {Hi Holly!! โค } I took a trip down memory lane and searched a song I loved from my younger days – The Cranberries, “Ode To My Family” {#1}

The choices were tough this time round, cos some real favourites of mine were coming up!! But this time I chose another favourite song – Evanescence, “My Immortal” {#2}

{FYI – Amy Lee is another chick I’d turn lesbian for, after P!NK. I must have a thing for fantastic female singers! ๐Ÿ˜‰ }
From there I clicked on an important bookmark from my past. This song is SO important to me. It was an easy choice even tho one of my all time favourite P!NK songs was there too lol. It’s – 3 Doors Down, “Here Without You” {#3}

Another tough choice! I went with an old favourite I haven’t heard in a while – Staind, “It’s Been A While” {4}

My next Degree was a real trip down memory lane!! It’d have to be 20yrs old! – Crash Test Dummies, “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” {5}

The last one was a toss-up for me between 2 or 3 fab songs. Love, love, LOVE the song I went with!! It’s Tracy Chapman, Fast Car {6}

Well, that’s got me started! I think I will do a 6 Degrees of YouTube every week! I love listening to old tunes I adore.
I see on the last one there’s another “bookmark of my life song” waiting to be clicked ….. so guess where I will start next week? ๐Ÿ˜€ heehee

Catch you soo, โค Kate โค
