Mikey1969: Skarekrough: Ennuipoet: FREE BIRD!!  PLAY FREE BIRD!!!!

I enjoy "Freebird."

I hate the unoriginal twunts that request it.

^^^^^T^H^I^S^^^^^ I really DO enjoy the song, I just don't like it either being A: The 'popular' thing, or B: The running gag.


It's not that it's a running gag anymore. It's just a willingness to admit you have nothing worthwhile to add in something even as basic as yelling random shiat.

However, in a move of genius I can't admit to have thought of, I knew a guy who did solo acoustic shows, exactly the kind where those prone to yelling "Freebird" were likely to show up to. He would set up his mic stand with a coffee can taped to it and a sign that read "Freebird - $100." The deal was that if you were willing to cough up a c-note then he had a version worked up for you. If not, then you needed to shut up.

It worked brilliantly. Someone would scream it. he would tap the can and that would be it. And every so often a group would pool their resources and pony it up and he would play it.

Everyone was happy.

pute kisses like a man: FirstNationalBastard: Welfare Peanut Butter: varmitydog: FirstNationalBastard : Also missing: Any version of "Hallelujah", especially in a movie or TV show.

You don't really care for music, do you?

I will defend this choice, if only because it literally is inescapable if you watch movies/TV with any sort of regularity. That POS is EVERYWHERE, being covered by everyone, and it gets grating after awhile. It's not an awful song, but it gets bad pretty quickly when you hear it so often. Pick something else, whoever has the job of picking music for shows/movies.

Exactly.

The list was "songs you never need to hear again"... not necessarily shiatty songs, although many of them are shiatty. But every time someone needs a shallowly deep moment in TV or Movies, Hallelujah gets dusted off and thrown into the soundtrack. It needs to be stopped.

clkeagle: Slacker for me instead of Sirius, but yeah, it works great for work or the hobby room at home. I only hear broadcast radio during short trips in the car... it doesn't have an MP3 player jack (there is DIY kit that I'm going to grab) and its CD player doesn't have a good buffer.


Sirius is worth it JUST for my yearly trek down to AZ. 11 hour or so drive if you stop once or twice, but more like 15 hours with a full family. I don't mind everyone sleeping while I do all of the driving quite as much when I have the music and comedy available. Also less work and ess distraction than navigating an iPod while driving... :-)

Meatloaf's "I would do anything for love (but I won't do that)" makes me all kinds of stabby.

It's the most overblown, overproduced piece of crap that any musician will ever make. Like a cheap porn actress it pretends to climax every 15 seconds and only embarasses itself. Cheap porn actresses have more integrity, though.

From around the same time; Womack & Womack's "Teardrops". Fark that awful song and fark anyone who liked it.

/Gonna go and listen to "Teardrop" by Massive Attack now to clear out that earworm

Infobahn: Afternoon Delight
The Starland Vocal Band

Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
gonna grab some afternoon delight.
My motto's always been; when it's right, it's right.
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night.
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day.
And you know the night is always gonna be there any way.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
looking forward to a little afternoon delight.
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
and the thought of rubbin' you is getting so exciting.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Started out this morning feeling so polite
I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn't bite
But you've got some bait a waitin' and I think I might try nibbling
a little afternoon delight.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Please be waiting for me baby when I come around.
We could make a lot of lovin' 'for the sun goes down.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.


You're dissing a sing entirely about getting a 'Nooner'? Who cares how bad it sounds, they were getting away with this shiat almost a full decade before 'Relax! and 'Feeling Japanese' tried it.

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: I got kicked out of the "It's a small world" ride at Disney World once with like 10 of my friends.  It was our high school graduation trip... they told our HS to never come back.

/CSB
/But yeah that song drove us crazy so we started smashing shiat


My first year at Burning Man, someone had built a full scale replica of that ride with loud-speakers that blared hundreds of different versions of that song (in other languages, speed up, slowed down, techno-ified etc) at all hours of the day and night, and every evening  at sunset a big military truck would pull up and dozens of men dressed like commandos, except  with steel mouse ears welded to thier helmets, would herd a mob of people dressed in costumes like those in the ride, to the  stage and force them at gunpoint to perform the song several times.    Except on the last night, just after the performance a woman dressed like the runner in Apple's famous "1984" ad came running up and hurled a satchel charge into the heart of the installation, blowing it into a million pieces and then burning the shards to ash.

It was.....the single most beautiful thing I have ever seen

actually anything played on mainstream classic rock stations. not that i don't like the bands but i'm certain the rolling stones have a large enough discography that i don't have to listen to "jumpin jack flash, paint it black and start me up" on a regular rotation.
same for the who, zep, ac/dc and the rest...

mix it up!
