The Shawn Johnson Music Thread Extravaganza!!!!!

Post  White Knight on Mon Feb 02, 2009 5:46 pm

Hear ye, hear ye one and all. Let's talk some music as it relates to our little Miss Shawn. What kind of music makes you think of her? What kind of music is she listening too? Do you have playlists that have to do with Shawn? What lyrics do you like and why do you connect them with Shawn?? Come on this is wide open so have some fun with it. Post songs, lyrics, playlists and why you chose those songs. But remember keep it Shawn related or you should probably post it in the other music section (Hint: Go to the main forum....look down...yes right there....if it's not Shawn related, post it there!). Oh and no need to limit it.....I have 5,654.3 songs on my Ipod that make me think of Shawn or something related to her........and I intend to talk about each and every one of them....in great and excruciating detail.

Now on to the first one....this band hails from Des Moines, Iowa (coincedentally Shawn Johnson's hometown....kind of....she is really from west Des Moines but that is neither here....actual it's over there.....wait, you can't see me pointing west....anyways I digress). The band is Slipknot and the song is Vermillion, Pt. 2

She seemed dressed in all of me, stretched across my shame.
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me
I'd do anything to have her to myself
Just to have her for myself
Now I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do when she makes me sane.

She is everything to me
The unrequited dream
A song that no one sings
The unattainable, Shes a myth that I have to believe in
All I need to make it real is one more reason
I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do when she makes me sad.

But I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

A catch in my throat choke
Torn into pieces
I won't, no!
I don't wanna be this...

But I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

She isn't real
I can't make her real
She isn't real
I can't make her real


Alrighty...so to me, this song is about having a crush on someone and you can't do anything about it....(BTW how people interpret a song is there own thoughts, it has nothing to do with what the actual meaning of the song is or was intended to be and if you talk to most good song writers or musicians, that is what they intend you to do). Especially the whole she isn't real thing. Until you meet someone and just see them on TV, it isn't real and it is a myth.....so anyways this song doesn't directly make me think of her, just some of my feelings, good or bad.

So now that you all know i'm insane....it's your turn....go for it.

I'm so glad someone created a thread like this and Knight I love the digressing lol.

The main song that makes me think of Shawn at the moment is Hey There Delilah by The Plain White T's, kinda corny song but I like it and it reflects the fact that Shawn is long way away.

Hey there Delilah
What's it like in New York City?
I'm a thousand miles away
But girl, tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can't shine as bright as you
I swear it's true

Hey there Delilah
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it's my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you're to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don't you miss me
Two more years and you'll be done with school
And I'll be making history like I do
You'll know it's all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here's to you
This one's for you

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me.

Et l'on n'y peut rien......................Nothing can be done (there). (Jean-Jacques Goldman.)

It was played all the time on French radio, when I saw Shawn at the Olympics, (I was living in France).

Oh and also Miracle by Tom Baxter reminds me of Shawn because it was played during a montage at the end of the Olympics by the BBC.

Here's the end montage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSlKkn0pNQE&feature=channel_page

The song "Dreamer" by Chris Brown makes me think of her because it was played on one of her beam routines from the Tour I saw online.
