If you thought I was done with those Seven Deadly Sins here on Sincerely Kate, you thought wrong! The Music Themes have seem to have quieted down ever since Bear went into hibernation in the mountains, but my mom and I decided we’d still do one from time to time, even if it’s just once a month, and invite the other Themists (and anyone else who’s interested 😉 ) to join us! I suggested the Seven Deadly Sins for February, and now I suggest you sit and watch my contributions– one for each sin.
When I first wrote about this sin I said I was envious of Justine’s ability to make quality envelopes and Kära’s imagination when it comes to creating all her Sims challenges. I know both of these pen pals would help me if I asked, but like King Louie I’d like to just be able to do these things myself.
I Wanna Be Like You- from The Jungle Book
“So give me the secret, man-cub. Clue me what to do.”
If this post was any indication, gluttony’s probably my deadliest sin. I’d rather die happy with a full tummy at 70 than live to be 90+ thanks to depriving myself from all that is yummy. I may be a picky eater, but I can appreciate this video’s sentiment.
Eat It- Weird Al
“Don’t you know that other kids are starving in Japan so eat it.”
The first time I wrote about greed I mucked it up a bit. Someone commented “Is wanting something greed? I do want things but I don’t consider myself greedy because of it.” In hindsight, maybe my sinful behavior wasn’t all that greedy, but I do still think people need to be more appreciative of what they already have– The Flying Lizards, myself, and that commenter included.
Money- The Flying Lizards
“The best things in life are free, but you can give them to the birds and bees.”
Like I said in this post, I don’t commit this sin too much between being in a monogamous relationship and having a little one, but that doesn’t mean lust should be taken for granted– temptation is everywhere. I picked this song because of the lyrics, but I picked this version because of the things Jacob and Lauren say as the New Directions perform it (e.g. “Take it off!”/”Mr. Schue, let me be your Britney!”). Sue saying “It’s a Britney Spears sex riot!” is also hysterical.
Toxic- Glee Cast
“I took a sip from my devil’s cup. Slowly, it’s taking over me.”
This previous post was a tough one to write since I had to swallow my pride to do so. I may talk things through with Gabe as well as vent to pen pals, but admitting things to my bleaders was huge for me. Want to know what else was huge? This song by Carly Simon.
You’re So Vain- Carly Simon
“You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte.”
I’m definitely guilty of being lazy, though, as I explained before, sloth’s a bit different as it’s more about being lethargic and/or apathetic. Either way, we’d rather do what we want to do than what needs to be done, much like Sugarland in the following song.
All I Wanna Do- Sugarland
“Hang a sign on the door, ‘please do not disturb.'”
I may have a temper and get into moods, but I didn’t think I was guilty of wrath in December and I don’t think I’m guilty of it now. Compared to Sweeney Todd I’m practically a Disney princess, haha.
Epiphany- from Sweeney Todd
“Because the lives of the wicked should be made brief.”
Considering how I did a whole series about the Seven Deadly Sins before, you can imagine how much fun I had finding songs to fit each one. If you’re envious and not being sloth, you can get greedy and collect your own videos and indulge in a little gluttony along the way. Put pride in your work! Not that you’d catch anyone’s wrath… but whether someone lusts after you is out of my control, haha.
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
