Music Monday: Think About Sports (Shoulda Said No by Taylor Swift)

Unlike the committed athletes I see running around the Roxiticus Valley who wake up early and work out every day, perfecting their chiseled abs, Roxy needs a little distraction to get me through my work-out on the elliptical trainer, and the Wii Fit personal training automaton just doesn't do the trick. However, after last week's Music Monday from Lady Gaga launching Roxy's new more playful theme, my idle fantasy has started to talk back to me, telling me the things I want him to do would be wrong. Well, yeah, bad boy, that's why you're an idle fantasy. Maybe we should think about sports instead? What's next, you'll tell me I've put on a few pounds and you don't find me attractive anymore? Now do as you're told: take your shirt off and get back to three-on-three hoops with the rest of the boys.

So I've created a "Think About Sports" playlist to work out to this week, leading off with Lady Gaga's Bad Romance (I want your love and I want your revenge, think about sports, I don't wanna be friends) and the Glee cast versions of "Burning Up" (unlike the others I'd do anything, I'm not the same, I have no shame, think about sports) and "Like a Prayer"(down on my knees, let me take you there, think about sports), and wrapping up with this week's Music Monday back from Taylor Swift's better days... "Should've Said No."

You should've said no, (think about sports)
You should've gone home, (think about sports)
You should have thought twice (about sports) before you let it all go.







It's strange to think the songs we used to sing,
The smiles, the flowers, everything,
Is gone.
Yesterday I found out about you,
Even now just looking at you,
Feels wrong.
You say, that you'd take it all back,
Given one chance, it was a moment of weakness,
And you said yes

You should've said no,
You should've gone home,
You should have thought twice before you let it all go.
You should've known that word about what you did with her would get back to me.
And I should've been there, in the back of your mind,
Shouldn't be asking myself why,
You shouldn't be begging for forgivness at my feet,
You should've said no,
Baby and you might still have me.

You can see that I've been cryin',
Baby you know all the right things,
To say.
But do you, honestly,
Expect me, to believe,
We could ever be the same.
You say, that the past is the past,
You need one chance, it was a moment of weakness,
And you said yes.

You should've said no,
You should've gone home,
You should have thought twice before you let it all go.
You should've known that word about what you did with her would get back to me.
And I should've been there, in the back of your mind,
Shouldn't be asking myself why,
You shouldn't be begging for forgiveness at my feet,
You should've said no
Baby and you might still have me..

I can't resist,
Before you go tell me this,
Was it worth it,
Was she worth this.

No, no, no, no.

You should've said no,
You should've gone home,
You should have thought twice before you let it all go.
You should've known that word about what you did with her would get back to me.
And I should've been there, in the back of your mind,
Shouldn't be asking myself why,
You shouldn't be begging for forgiveness at my feet,
You should've said no,
Baby and you might still have me...

Speaking of Taylor Swift, we downloaded her new album, Speak Now, on iTunes last Monday when it came out, and Rex and I have been really disappointed. Though I've never paid close attention to which songs she wrote (vs. those that were written for her), when we took London and Maddie to see Taylor Swift at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ she really impressed me when she walked right through the crowd to sing a set that included "Tim McGraw"and "Fifteen," which are two of my absolute favorites. This time out, the songs, particularly the title track, are cliched and whiney. I'll hope she hasn't outgrown the talent and innocence that made her teenage efforts so attractive.
