NaNo Anthem

I've loved this song ever since I first heard it on the Clueless soundtrack whosie-whatsie years ago (and don't pretend you don't love that movie!):

(Nate Albert/Dicky Barrett/Joe Gittleman/Bosstones)

There was a place
And the name of the place escapes me
When I can't remember
It irritates me
Could be I can't remember
Could be I choose to not,
Let's move the song along
And try to find the plot
There was a girl and I don't know her name either
She gave me love and I swore I'd never leave her
If I did I'd come back someday and find her
Maybe I will I should write down a reminder
One day! One day who knows
Someday I suppose
There was a verse that I was gonna write I haven't yet
But there's still a chance I might An open book
That I still want to close I'll find the time
Someday I suppose A place and time,
I wanna be and spend a storyline
That's happy in the end Plans are made
with promises so certainly uncertain
I can't wait to set things straight
before they close the curtain
One day! One day who knows
Someday I suppose
The more I sort things out
The more it gets distorted
I sort of think I'm better off just leaving it unsorted
The more I try to change it's course
the more off course it goes
Of course I'll reach my destination someday I suppose
Sort it out,
Get distorted
One day who knows
Hide behind,
Someday I suppose

It's been running through my head since I started NaNo.  Everytime I feel like a scene is moving too slowly, I start singing, "Let's move this song along and try to find a plot!" in my best ska voice.

Feel free to adopt it as your NaNo anthem as well.  :)


  1. I've never seen Clueless...maybe it is time.

  2. It is SOOOOO time. We need to have a girl's night in!

  3. Oh, I LOVE Clueless! I could watch that movie over and over again.
