Wink Mardy's "Tough Love" Thread!

Hey guys

I thought maybe we could start a chit chat thread in here because there's something that's been on my mind and I don't know where else to post it.

You know the band FINGER ELEVEN and their beautiful, mournful-sounding song, "One Thing"? (if not, here's a link where you can hear part of the tune)

Well, I don't know how it came into being but every time I hear this song on the radio, I always end up thinking about Mardy, and I have no idea why! I don't know if maybe I heard the song after watching a Mardy match and connected them together, but I find it very difficult to think of anything else but Mardy when this song plays.

The odd thing is that the lyrics doesn't seem to really "match" with anything that has to do with Mardy. Here are the lyrics. I don't even know what the song's supposed to be about.

ONE THING

Restless tonight
Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line
It’s nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldn’t that be something

I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

--------

Anyway, I just wanted to get this off my chest because it's been bugging me. Maybe some of you also hear a song on the radio that reminds you of Mardy. And then I won't feel so bad.

The results have shown."

Re: Yakkity Yak Thread

Awww you know I'm just teasing you

I actually don't know that song at all, but I can see how the lyrics would kinda maybe remind you about Mardy lol

But actually for me, listening to music is usually the one part of the day when my mind is totally clear... so songs don't typically remind me of other people - only sometimes things that actually happened to me where a particular song played a role (y'know, like boys and stuff)

LOL. Well that's a universal topic everyone can relate to.

I actually miss my college days, though. Those were some great, fun times. Who knew you could have so much fun with so little money?

Re: Yakkity Yak Thread

tangy i can't say that song reminds me off him no! the chris moyles version of addicted to bass which was addicted to plaice reminds me of mardy just coz of the "fishy wishy" line lols

not a big fan of finger eleven i saw them supporting evanescences twice and thought they sucked! they had their levels all wrong and then when they did get them fixed they were just bad, i was dead disappointed coz i was expecting them to be dead good!

Re: The bitch-slapping "Mardy You Suck" thread!!!

ok, you know what? I'm changing the title of this thread. This is now the Official Bash Mardy Thread. You heard right. He deserves it. After getting bageled by Mario in the first set at Madrid. In sixteen minutes, no less! Pfffttttt

Leave your Mardy rants here.

Re: The Official "Mardy You Suck" Thread!!!

Mardy actually came back from the dead and WON!!!! Wow! He doesn't do that often! I'm impressed. OK, I take back my bash but still---he shouldn't have been bageled in 16 minutes. A most impressive comeback, Mardy!
