the 2 year anniversary party continues

If you ever want to know what people really think of you, just ask them to come up with taglines for your blog. Some of you people scare me.

Before I get into the news of the day, I do have another mission for you today - as I will every day for the rest of the week.

This one has an actual prize. Remember those cover songs you all listed for me last week? I've downloaded a whole bunch of them and I'll burn a set for a CD mix and give one out as a prize.

Ok, so today's blogaversary play-along game is Theme Song.

I need a good theme song, one that I can leave up on the sidebar for anyone to download. I mean an actual song that already exists. Please, for the love of my sanity, do not go making songs up.

As with the tagline, just try to find something that defines this blog in musical terms. No Celine Dion, please. I'd have to kill you.


"I touch myself"

Sorry - its too damn early for me.

I Want Candy - the Bow Wow Wow remake

Some possibilities:

"Goodnight Moon" -- Shivaree
"Everything Reminds Me Of My Dog" -- Jane Siberry
"They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha! Ha!" -- Napoleon XIV

I wanted to hold off until the actual day, but I probably missed it, so happy blogaversary... The celebration is very enlightening so far :-)

When the whip comes down, the Stones

Oh, lordy - there's only one possibility. the chorus of "Brick House"..


Brick House Lyrics by Commodores

She's a brick----house
Mighty might just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick----house
The lady's stacked and that's a fact,
ain't holding nothing back.
She's a brick----house
She's the one, the only one,
who's built like a amazon [pronounced am-a-ka-zawn]
We're together everybody knows,
and here's how the story goes.
1. She knows she got everything
a woman needs to get a man, yeah.
How can she use, the things she use
36-24-36, what a winning hand!
2. The clothes she wears, the sexy ways,
make an old man wish for younger days
She knows she's built and knows how to please
Sure enough to knock a man to his knees
Shake it down, shake it down now (repeat)

How about 101 North by Tomahawk? I know you dig mike patton....here are some lyrics:

Out on the road and I am high enough, thumb's up
You're pullin' over, gonna pick me up, shut up!
The rusty wiper blades move along, in song
Having a lonely bird in your car, shut up
My piece is in your ear
Movin' fast, thinkin' clear
I'll squeeze if you don't steer
And follow the line, shut up!
You are the bullet, I am the gun, I won
Screw on the silencer and have some fun
Grey highway, deserting me
Hitchhiking, a pair of high-beams coming my way
Hitch a ride, hitch a ride

Whip It - Devo

Jill Sobule's "Don't Fuck With Me"

Poison Heart - Ramones

No one ever thought this one would survive.
Helpless child, gonna walk a drum beat behind.
Lock you in a dream, never let you go,
Never let you laugh or smile, not you.

I just want to walk right out of this world,
'Cause everybody has a poison heart.
I just want to walk right out of this world,
'Cause everybody has a poison heart.

Making friends with a homeless torn up man,
He just kind of smiles, it really shakes me up.
There's danger every corner but I'm okay,
Walking down the street trying to forget yesterday.

I just want to walk right out of this world,
'Cause everybody has a poison heart.
I just want to walk right out of this world,
'Cause everybody has a poison heart.

You know that life really takes its toll
And a poet's gut reaction is to search his very soul.
So much damn confusion before my eyes,
But nothing seems to phase me and this one still survives.

I just want to walk right out of this world,
'Cause everybody has a poison heart.
I just want to walk right out of this world,
'Cause everybody has a poison heart.

The Best Song in the World - Tenatious D

How 'bout the theme song to Patty Duke's Identical Cousins? Okay, never mind.

The Panda Song....by Corky and the Juice Pigs.

'Birdhouse In Your Soul' by There Might Be Giants.

Minnie Riperton's "Loving You". Yes, I am one sick puppy, but the justaposition is funny, no?

"I wanna be sedated", by The Ramones

"I hate my friggin ISP" by T.Rundgren

OK, I don't think I've ever heard them before, but ya gotta love the title of the album and song for this blog:

Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone - The Walkmen

A Small Victory -Faith No More
"If I Speak At One Constant Volume
At One Constant Pitch
At One Consonant Rhythm
Right Into Your Ear,
You Still Won't Hear"

may have been a typo, but it is They might be giants, not There. but that's a great song

Yeah, my fingers were ahead of my mind on They Might Be Giants.

Oh, here's another: Hands Of Death (Burn Baby Burn) by Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper, from 'Songs In The Key Of X', an X-Files soundtrack.

One more: Frenzy by Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

Let's reach back a bit. How about Triumph's "Fight the Good Fight":

Fight the good fight every moment,
every minute, every day.
Fight the good fight every moment:
it's the only way
to make it worth the price you pay.

The music, not the words, to Human Fly, by the Cramps
