Song of the Day #1,377 (2 1/2 years late): ‘Some Mistakes’ – Brad Paisley

5th_gearI’ve been living a lie.

On April 19, 2012, I posted a song from Fiona Apple’s When the Pawn…. It was during a countdown of my favorite albums of the 90s, and Apple’s sophomore effort was #2 on my list.

That was Song of the Day #1,376.

The following day, I posted my #1 album of the 90s. It was Ben Folds Five’s self-titled debut.

That was Song of the Day #1,378.

You read that right. 1,378. Not 1,377, as it should have been. I somehow slipped up and mis-numbered the blog post, skipping my 1,377th song and oh so innocently proceeding for the next two and half years unaware of my mistake.

That means by 2,000th post was really my 1,999th post. It means I’m one Song of the Day lighter than I’ve imagined myself for a long time.

Luckily I stumbled upon it quite by accident just this week, or I might have lived this lie forever.

Today I am remedying that mistake by finally posting Song of the Day #1,377 — it’s out of order, sure, but it exists.

And as fate and the Random iTunes Fairy would have it, the song that came up on the dial is titled ‘Some Mistakes,’ courtesy of Mr. Brad Paisley. Unlike Brad, however, I hope this is a mistake I make only once.

[Verse 1]
You may think I’m wrong for you
And you’re wrong for me
To look at us on paper
I would have to agree
It could have been the moon light
Or it could have been the wine
But the way that we were acting
Hell it could have been the moon shine

And oh we’re do we go from here
I don’t know
But baby one thing’s clear
Some mistakes are too much fun
To only make once

There’s this little straight stretch
Just south of here
It’s great for mashing down the gas
And trying out fifth gear
But it’s also a speed trap
Twice I’ve gotten caught
But something bout it calls to me
And I can’t seem to stop

And oh you have the same effect
I know I’ll just keep coming back
Some mistakes are too much fun
To only make once

Well there are things in life that I regret
And even more that haven’t happened yet
But it would be a shame if our little fling
Always stayed a onetime thing
Someday if we’re lucky
We’ll get old enough to finally be embarrassed
By the crazy things we’ve done
Be just like our parents
Responsible and bland
No risk, no excitement
Hey lets get it while we can
Cause

Some Mistakes are too much fun
To only make once
Love like this is too much fun
To only make once

    That’s too funny! I don’t understand though why this post would have existed as numbered then since you would have likely posted the number one song after the number two song, no?

    This wouldn’t have been #1,377 at the time (the Ben Folds song would have been), but rather than renumber every song I’ve posted since then, I’m just getting that SOTD number in the mix to get me back on track.
