song for the dead

I think we should pick a theme song for the death of Q and U. And yea, I thought about this before The Corner did, I just didn't blog it yet.

(Poll below)

Or, you can choose your own. I'm going with the Cannibal Corpse lyrics (click that link) - they seem pretty appropriate.

My idea of hell would be any song by The Carpenters, or maybe Barry Manilow.

Disco Inferno!

Today one radio show was playing "Na na na na, hey hey, goodbye"

"Today one radio show was playing "Na na na na, hey hey, goodbye""

Yep, that's my choice. A shame the brothers Hussein weren't listening to it while being fed feet first into a wood chipper by angry Iraqis--they got off easy.

Would there not be some sort of sublime joy in using the Dixie Chicks' "Goodbye Earl"?

How about a continuous loop tape of Louie, Louie, just like Bender wants on Futurama.

No, wait! I want that playing here!

Oh, Hell! Never mind.

Somehow Lynard Skinner's "Gimme Three Steps" seemed appropriate.

Ooh. Just thought of a couple more...

"I fight authority, authority always wins" - John Goober Melonhead

"I fought the law and the law won"

Yeah, I know they're basically the same but it's past my bedtime.

Actually, I'd be happy with "Song for the Dead." But I'm pretty highly opposed to jolly most of the time...

Well I'm a long tall Texan
I wear a ten-gallon hat
(He rides from Texas wearing a ten-gallon hat)
Yes I'm a long tall Texan
I wear a ten-gallon hat
(He rides from Texas wearing a ten-gallon hat)
Well people look at me and they say
Is that your hat
(He rides from Texas wearing a ten-gallon hat)

Well I'm a long tall Texan
I ride a big white horse
(He rides from Texas on a big white horse)
Yes I'm a long tall Texan
I ride a big white horse
(He rides from Texas on a big white horse)
Well people look at me and they say
Is that your horse
(He rides from Texas on a big white horse)

Well I was walking down the street
With my shiny badge
My spurs jingling there at my feet
I seen a man a'coming
Coming with a gun and
I just can't be beat

Yes I'm a long tall Texan
I enforce justice for the law
(He rides from Texas to enforce the law)
Well I'm a long tall Texan
I enforce justice for the law
(He rides from Texas to enforce the law)
Well people look at me and they say
Is you the law
(He rides from Texas to enforce the law)

Well I'm a long tall Texan
Yes I'm a long tall Texan

Wait, you mean no one set up with "Surprise! You're Dead" ?

It's not over yet! You don't remember? I won't let you forget.

Some might call it inhumane, but if you really want to inflict heavy-duty suffering you could designate them as Red Sox fans for all eternity.

You could even additionally stipulate that they be forced to listen to a perpetual loop of Vanessa Carlton's All-Star Game version of the Star Spangled Banner, but that might be too unkind even for cold-blooded killers...

If you want to inflict much agony on these two in the afterlife, I suggest you do what a local radio station did last week when they changed formats. They took all six versions of the song "Summer Breeze", including the one by Seals and Crofts, and played them non-stop in a continuous loop for two days straight.

Even if someone liked that song, that would get annoying very quickly.

If not that, the Carpenters would work for me, too.

I'm reserving "Na na na na..." for Gray Davis.

Q and U get a nonstop Yoko Ono marathon for their ride to the depths.

And where is Beer For My Horses?

SNZ out of that list, since I like them.
