DrForrester: Frank Zappa's "Dumb All Over"

jordan_lund: Shudder to think the first song they hear may be some death metal.

I for one think they should listen to black metal. Just to let them know we aren't playing.

Flower By Eels off Beautiful Freak

Turn the ugly light off god
Wanna feel the night
Everyday it shines down on me
Don't you think that I see
Don't you think that I see what it's all about

Hard to look the other way
While the world passes me by
And everyone is trying to bum me out

It's a pretty big world god
And I am awful small
Everyday they rain down on me
Flower in a hailstorm
Flower in a hailstorm
I'm living for the drought
I could throw it back at them
But then I play their game
Everyone is trying to bum me out

When I came into this world they slapped me
And everyday since then I'm slapped again
Tomorrow's king: an unsightly coward
You see, I know I'm gonna win

Turn the ugly light off god
Don't wanna see my face
Everyday it will betray me
Don't you think that I know
Don't you think that I know what they're talking about
If they step on me tonight
They're gonna pay someday
Everyone is trying to bum me out

bradmofo has a point, i was listening to funkadelic's maggot brain the other night and will always respect that statement.

however, if the aliens want the whole story, they'll have to listen to Magma's Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh from 1973
