What Do You Believe?

I believe that all is fair in love and rock n’ roll. I believe that the path to Eden leads straight through paradise. I believe that your soul meets your body where the ocean meets the sand, I believe in Juicy Couture Jeans. I believe that the cost of freedom is buried in the ground. That Sodomy is between God and me. In red wine. In New Castle. In 85% dark chocolate. I believe that you can seduce someone with your eyes or an ass wiggle when you walk. I believe in change. I believe we are young despite the years. We are concern. We are hope despite the times. I believe in green eyes. In security blankets. In the difference between self-love and conceit. I believe music saves your mortal soul. That baseball is a class act and that tivo is the greatest invention since sliced bread. I believe that I have so much life running through my veins that I am going insane. Lets imitate reality. I believe I am the radio song, the one that you turned up. I believe that love will be my strongest weapon. That Oral is fun. In concerts. In scary movies and romantic comedies. I believe there is nothing you cannot be do or have. I believe that guys with good taste in music are more interesting and better looking. I believe in a thing called love. I believe in superheroes. I believe I can get whatever I want. I believe I get everything I want eventually. I believe Mr. Big was a better guy to be with than Aiden. I believe everybody needs somebody to love. I believe in caffeine, in high heels and flip-flops. I believe in peace rather than being anti-war. I believe that since everyone is dying, maybe it is time we live. I believe it is never too late. I believe it takes courage to right a wrong, to take it back, to apologize and swallow our pride. I believe in grabbing my guy’s ass in public...and holding his hand. I believe we are allowed to want what we want without anyone saying otherwise and I believe that the Angel’s will kick the A’s ass this week and come out on top. I believe in sunrises and poetry. In ice cubes and electronic bill pay. I believe nothing is wrong, hats only work on some girls, and the ego is the only cause of ones suffering. I believe in kissing…lots and lots of kissing and really hot showers…with someone in there with you. I believe true love shouldn’t be easy to find, cause then the quest to get it would have no reward. I believe hindsight is 20/20, springtime in New York is perfect, America is a pretty damn good country, mint chocolate chip ice cream is a great accessory to summer and guys with fake tans cannot be trusted. I believe in the hot dog, the Koala bear and diamonds….lots of diamonds.
I believe in filing my cup and making me happy, in lazy days and passion fruit.

Dear ones, tell me….what do you believe?

And bonus points to anyone who can tell me what song lyrics are sprinkled in there : )

I believe I can fly. I believe that you help me accomplish that. Thank you.

I believe you've quoted Don McLean's "American Pie", almost quoted the Beatles "All You Need is Love", and The Blues Brothers (though they probably aren't the first to sing "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love").

I also believe that I'll leave some of the treasure-hunting fun for those to follow.

-J said...

I like pie.

Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.

Sorry, it's too early for me to write.

I believe that actions speak MUCH louder than words ; that your soul mate may be your best friend, not your man ; there is a very thin line between love and hate ; Ever a cheater, always a cheater; ice cream tastes better on a cone than in a bowl ; you can be friends with an ex ; you love your children the most when they are hugging you or when they are sleeping ; being funny is more attractive than having a full head of hair ; anticipation is more pleasurable that instant gratification ; true friends will lighten your mood in an instant.

Mr. Burns said...

I'm gonna go with the Darkness' "I believe in a thing called love," but as twobuyfour said, there's much more there.

Oh, and I believe in language.

I, simply stated, believe.

Scott said...

I believe in grabbing my girls ass in public. haaha.

Scott

Rachel Heather said...

2X4 - your welcome :) and you got the songs you mentioned right, though there are a lot more in there. Lets see how everyone does :)

J - ahhh one of my favorite movies.

Rachel - we share a name AND many beliefs :). Ice cream is better in a cone for sure. Especially the waffle cones that they dip in chocolate. yum yum.

Mr. Burns - correct. and yes many more :) Believing in anything good is a good belief

Scott - Make sure it is YOUR girl and not a strangeer girl LOL

Rachel Heather said...

and come on people - find the song lyrics!!!!

unless you have no idea - then go buy some cds and get learnin!

Sarah said...

You've quoted these R.E.M. songs:-
These Days
Radio Song
Final Straw

I believe it is now obvious what my favourite band is :)

Yet another great post.

Rachel Heather said...

Sarah - correct except for Radio Song. That Radio song quote is not from REM's radio song....

here is a hint - the band that that quote came from - the lead singer is a friend of Michael Stipe.

minijonb said...

The "Radio Song" quote is from Wishlist by Pearl Jam.

I believe that your list is pretty damn excellent, especially the dark chocolate, security blankets, and all the sexy and musical stuff. If I can think of anything to add, I'll let you know, but you really nailed what to believe in on the head. Bravo.

Tristina said...

I've just spent my free time at work reading your post (which I really enjoyed!), so I don't have time to write out anything prolific.

But I'll take a stab at the guessing game and say that there was definitely some stuff from La Vie Boheme (RENT soundtrack).

Great post!

twobuyfour said...

I believe in raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings. These are a few of my favorite things.

I am so stoked to learn that Crash Davis reads your blog! He's such a personal hero of mine!

I'd guess more song titles, but I'm having trouble breathing through my eyelids.

Keshi said...

** I believe that guys with good taste in music are more interesting and better looking

thats so true!


I believe in angels like Rach...cos she stands for the purest of hearts and true beauty of the soul.

I loved every word u said here Rach. I wish there were more ppl like u in this very troubled world.

Keshi.

Rachel Heather said...

minijonb - good job! And thank you :)

Tristina - Hi and thank you! And yes you guessed right.

2X4 - take a better stab at it when your eyelids work please :)

Keshi - awwww thank you. I think you are pretty fantabulous as well :)

Anonymous said...

hmmm.. I see some REM and some Rent in there... mainly reminds me of Rent.

I live in NYC, and quite frankly I believe the man living in the apt. below me has never left his house. For myself I believe that dreams come true. Karma. . . and that the sun will come up. I believe in adventures.

I enjoyed coming across your blog. Keep writing!

work in progress said...

I believe that small steps make a difference. I believe in trying even when you're doomed to fail. I believe in boycotting Walmart. I believe in purchasing fair-trade and organic products. I believe chocolate heals the soul. I believe my fiance when he tells me I'm beautiful. I believe bad tippers will get what they have coming to them via the powerful force we call karma. I believe in karma. I believe that Shakespeare plays should be viewed, not read. I believe that I am capable of rambling on and on and on...

I believe I'm too lazy to read your post again. American Pie was the best I could come up with and 2x4 already got it.

deepsat said...

i believe that in any darkness, there will always be some light!
i believe in the one i love the most.
i believe in living life to the fullest and without regret.
i believe everyone is perfect and beautiful.

;-))

twobuyfour said...

I believe these people are NOT getting with it. I'll do a couple more but that's it.

CSN&Y: "The Cost of Freedom"

Oingo Boingo: "Insanity"

You sort of quoted G-n-R: "Welcome to the Jungle"

K. Minogue: "Never Too Late" (but that may have just been your own comment)

C'mon people now! Everybody get together. We've got to get this party started. Shout out what you're thinking of. Fear's a dangerous thing. You say you don't know? You won't know until you begin? I know all the games you play 'cause I play them too. You gotta have faith.

Rachel Heather said...

work in progress - thats ok 2x4 took care of many that most people could not see :) I believe chocolate is for the soul too!

anonymous - thank you!

deepsat - Nice beliefs. :) You should totally blog about it!

2x4 - thank you. Yes I think you find what many cannot see :) Though The Kylie Minogue thing was just accidental.

question girl said...

i believe in soulmates... more to the point - i belive in bashert

i belive in karma

i belive in the lyrics of the byrds turn turn turn

i belive that my grandparents are watching over me, and that they will be at my wedding, front row

i believe that the perfect man doesnt exist, only the perfect man for me

Spat said...

I beleive in true honesty!

And honestly... i am a new fan!

So hi from Quebec, Can!

And if in our lives we walk by each other... i would probably be the guy slamming in the light pole..

Cheers!

kat said...

i believe you got this idea from the blue collar commedy tour (lovely!) and that you really should come up to the mountains sometime soon.

Keshi said...

**. I think you are pretty fantabulous as well

hell yeah I believe in that too..lol!

Keshi.

Rachel Heather said...

question girl - we really do have a lot in common :)I love Turn Turn Turn! Also, I do believe in Bashert as well. And to cheer you up I will tell you that what is written about bashert is that it is hard to get and you have to go through a lot to get it, like trials and stuff. LOL I believe my great grandpa will be at my wedding too :)

Kat - no I didn't get the idea from them lol. But, I will come up to the mountains soon. I'll take you out on the Lake boat.

Spat - wow thank you and welcome! I believe in honesty too. It is so refreshing.

Keshi - you always post things to make me smile :)

kat said...

yay! they haven't let me on the lake yet. then again i haven't had time. gah.

Jim McKee said...

I believe in the Detroit Tigers.

Nuff said!

;-]

Grins said...

I believe Susan Sarandon is going to want to have sex with you after that. Wow. Fanning self.

Nigel Vossap said...

I believe you and I are meant for each other. I believe you are my goddess. I believe I would move heaven and earth for you. I believe we are the spark that ignites each other's fire. I believe you give great Oral. I believe everything you believe because it is so believable. I believe we should get married once you stop believing in the zodiac. I believe the zodiac has nothing to do with our love for each other. I believe you mow the lawn quite well. I believe I will mow it for you and you will never have to trim those beautiful hedges again. I believe the only pathway I need to walk down is the 'pathway to pleasure'. I believe that you are one sexy sultress who shines her light through my soul daily. I believe I would never walk away from you and pussy out on my responsibilities to you. Any guy who would do that must be out of his mind! I believe I like pie, too. In fact, I'll take mine a la mode to kill two birds with one stone.

Rachel Heather said...

Kat - you work too much!! You need to have fun :)

Jim - Detroit fan huh? thats a shame ;)

Grins - hahaha ...where did you come up with Susan Surandan LOL

Just Some Guy - I ...I....ummmm....okay. LOL

Grins said...

Seriously? In the movie Bull Durham, Kevin Costner(Crash Davis) has a classic speech when speaking to Susan Sarandon (Annie Savoy), it goes like this:


Annie Savoy: What do you believe in, then?

Crash Davis: Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.
[pause]

Crash Davis: Goodnight.

Annie Savoy: Oh my. Crash...
