Music...

... a while back, two fine bloggers requested my participation in a musical meme... Jimbo and Rave.... And since my little noggin is perfectly devoid of subject matter, I suppose it is time to step up to the proverbial plate.....

... be warned, however... my taste in music is varied, eclectic, and highly questionable... so some of the songs might be offensive to underage ears... so just take that as a "not safe for work" warning, children.....

.... here goes...

Four songs that you could listen to over and over:
... actually, I tend to put a song on repeat when I sit down to blog and/or surf... after eight or nine plays, I will sometimes switch songs... but on a few occasions, I have literally kept the same song on repeat for the entire day...

... there are quite a few that I keep on repeat... but here are the most recent four...

Mexican Home - John Prine
Carmelita - Warren Zevon
I Can't Wait To Get Off Work (And See My Baby On Montgomery Avenue) - Tom Waits
One For The Road - Robbie Williams

Four songs that drive you up the friggin' wall:
... now this is an interesting question... mainly because, well, it is nearly impossible to drive me up a wall... I am the consummate laid back hedonist.... That said, however, I suppose I should choose something...

any rap song except for The Gourd's version of Gin & Juice
any ABBA song
Sweet Dreams Are Made of These - The Eurythmics
any music where the singer mumbles and I can't hear the lyrics

Four songs that you're embarrassed (or should be) to admit you like:
Three Point One Four - The Bloodhound Gang
The Lapdance Is So Much Better When The Stripper Is Crying - The Bloodhound Gang
The CB Song - The Legendary Shack Shakers
The Bad Touch - The Bloodhound Gang


Four best driving songs:
... well, this produces a conundrum... sometimes I drive fast... and sometimes I drive slow.... And I use different types of music for each mood.... so, ok... the first two songs are for quick-pedalling.... and the last two are for more gentle cornering.....

Let Me Entertain You - Robbie Williams
Funky Monks - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Mexican Blackbird - ZZ Top
... and in certain moods, Lenny by SRV


Four songs that make you cry:
... wow... the easiest question yet....
Fields of Gold - Eva Cassidy .... If you haven't heard her version, you are missing out.... she died young from cancer.. but goodness, her voice is haunting...
The University of Georgia Fight Song
The University of Florida Fight Song
The University of Alabama Fight Song

Four best risqué songs:
Lady of the Afternoon - Ed Haynes
Pasties & a G-String - Tom Waits
Fuck You Like An Animal - Nine Inch Nails
Let's Misbehave - Cole Porter ... heh... check this out....

Let's Misbehave, by Cole Porter...

We're all alone; no chaperone can get our number...
The world's in slumber; let's misbehave.

There's something wild about you, child, that's so contangious...
Let's be outrageous; let's misbehave.

When Adam won Eve's hand, he wouldn't stand for teasin'...
He didn't care about those apples out of season.

They say the spring means just one thing to little love birds.
We're not above birds; let's misbehave.

(Chorus)

If you'd be just so sweet and only meet your fate, dear,
It would be the great event of nineteen twenty-eight, dear.

(Chorus)

Let's Misbehave!

... ladies and gentlemen, that simply rocks..... those crazy kids back in 1928 must have gone WILD...

Four best kid songs:
... hmmm... having no babies of my own, I'm having to stretch a bit for this one... but here goes..

Mary Had a Little Lamb - Stevie Ray Vaughan
The Monster Mash - Bobby "Boris" Picket
One-eyed, One-horned, Flying, Purple People-eater - Sheb Wooley
Pasties & a G-String - Tom Waits

... oh, yeah... I simply cannot WAIT to teach Pasties & a G-String to my nephews....

Four songs (hell, pick your own category and fill it in):... ok... four songs from my hard drive chosen at random...
Kiss - Prince
Plastic Jesus - Paul Newman (vocals AND banjo)
Wolf Creek Pass - C.W. McCall
My First Affair - Frank Sinatra

... there you go, friends and neighbors.... those links should keep you busy for a few minutes.... I'm off to pour a Scotch and sit under the dogwoods.....

... peace, out...

Bullshit So Far

You're gonna teach your nephews Pasties & a G-String. Oh they'll be a hit at family gatherings. Let me tell you. And their Mama... she is gonna HATE you forever. Heh.

Eric,
I had never heard "Pasties & a G-String" before. I consider myself baptized now.

Looks like I got a pleasant day ahead of me, plowing through my mountains of work, listening to a bunch of tunes, which you mostly dig.

Works for me.

I love the "The lapdance is so much better when the stripper is crying" song. I have this older gentleman that plays just that one song on the juke at one of tha bars I attend. It has so much meaning in it...

Bloodhound Gang rocks.

"She ain't got no legs" is another classic :)
