radio, radio III: mood alteration

Someday, we will really move. We will really close on that house. I am under the impression that it will be Thursday, but the way things are going, they might mean some random Thursday in the year 2008. Someday, we will not be living out boxes and we will not have to struggle to find out where the looseleaf paper is and we will not trip over Rubbermaid containers while trying to answer the phone. Someday, I will have a new address and then, and only then, will I be happy. And that day better be Thursday or else. And when I say or else, I mean...or else. I am going to soothe the savage beast that lurks inside me by going to get about six inches cut off of my hair. When I get back, I will make a radio station to go with the mood, and it will be titled "I was bordering on psychotic rage but I am going to hold off on that while I search for my inner peace through the purchase of beauty products and comic books." Song suggestions would be helpful.

I think someone needs an endless loop of Bobby McFerrin tonight. Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Oddly enough, your family and mine are moving the same day. Good luck on your end.

How about "Cut Your Hair" by Pavement?

You and Vodkaboy should commiserate, he's doing the refi from hell.

I know I'm obvious,but what better excuse for "I wanna be sedated"?

Acquire a .10 BAC first, crank the boombox to 10 and you'll be bouncing off the walls in no time.

Ok, I didn't read your post carefully enough. Those would be songs for when you're through holding off on the psychotic rage.

The Ramones cover of the Spiderman cartoon theme song should cover the comic book part of it.

You Burn Me Up (I'm a Cigarette) Robert Fripp with Daryl Hall

Spider and I - Brian Eno

A couple of Stones tunes come to mind.

19th Nervous Breakdown - Rolling Stones

Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones

I HATE moving and will probably need to do it again soon, so you have my sympathy. Tonight I'll dedicate a drink to the continued sanity of you and your family.

"Pictures of Home" -- Deep Purple

I think you should do a compendium of bad 70s pop songs. Like, "The Night Chicago Died," "Billy, Don't Be A Hero" (WTF was that stupid song about, anyway?), "My Dingaling" (I know what THAT song was about), any John Denver tune but especially "Rocky Mountain High" (only good song he ever wrote was "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and only when PP&M did it), "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" (God, I hated that song, but not nearly as much as:), "Come on Eileen," "My Sharona" (Much better version: My Bologna by Weird Al).

Or you could just go put on the Dr. Demento CD compilation and listen to things like "Fish Heads."

I say either go head-banging music when you're depressed, or funny stuff. Or stuff that drives you to creative ways of murdering those of us who suggest songs like (I know this is sixties, and he's a convicted pedophile, but....) "Honey," by Bobby Goldsboro.

See the tree, how big it's grown
My friend, it hasn't been so long
It wasn't big.

Or something like that.

Leaving now. Boy, I'm glad Michele is nearly 400 miles away from me.
