I got no good ideas, but I know I want to post something to stay busy so here is the 2nd time I will hit random on my itunes and talk about the first five songs to come up - an idea ripped off from the AV Club from The Onion, I believe.

1. "You Spin Me Right Round (Like a Record) by Dead or Alive. First off, I like songs with parenthesis. Secondly, this song is "lots of fun." Third, singer Pete Burns claims that the more famous Boy George stole his look. I will say that Pete was a slightly more convincing tranny.

2. "D.A.N.C.E." by Justice. I liked this one when I saw it come on one of the MTV channels back when they played decent songs. Justice is a French dance duo. I probably would have had more thoughts on this one a few years back when I was more into it. I think I played it out, which is a surefire sign that I really dug it at one time.

3. "Peace Sells" (Live) by Megadeth. My downstairs neighbor, a father of three who is a lawyer, but I only see him dressed up once a month or so (the other days he has on metal shirts like Dio) saw Megadeth, Testament, and Slayer at UIC here in Chicago. I asked him if Megadeth played anythign off of "Rust in Peace," one of the only metal albums I can still enjoy all the way through, and it turns out they played the whole thing that night. His three-year-oldish son has super long hair, and I asked if he went to Megadeth too. As he casually smacked at a bird feeder with a stick as if it were in a pinata, he said, "No. Daddy did."

4. Song number four is a bad, bad country song. These come on a lot because I have downloaded a ton of country music for my two annual Redneck parties. We get moonshine from Alabama, a mystery tub of beer where you have to reach in there without knowing what you're getting, we decorate the house all white-trashy, and we encourage guests to dress up. I'm thinking this is the band Alabama . . . Nope, it's the Oakridge Boys, "One in a Million." I should have known by the guy with the deep voice, the guy who sings the deep part in "Elvira." That song used to crack me up when I was a kid.

5. "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window" by The Beatles. This is one of those songs, just like most everything on "Dark Side of the Moon" by Pink Floyd where you can't hear just one song because each song flows into each other so well, like a part of a perfect whole. Has anyone ever seen that part of Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story where he drops acid with The Beatles? Whoever wrote that scene really knew what was funny and interesting about The Beatles.

Rust In Peace is a great album.

That is all.

I used to listen to Megadeath before my soccer games to get me pumped up. Worked pretty good. And "You Spin Me Right Round" was remade by Flo Rida and it was the #1 song when my baby boy was born so I am kind of fond of it even though I don't listen to a lot of rap.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Heff: For sure. Love it. Where do you put that in the all time best metal records?

Shife: Maybe you and baby shife will jam that song together on the way to soccer games one day. : )

Ah yes. I used to play Dead or Alive a lot when I DJed my high school's dances. We're talking, like, 1985 here. Does it count as classical music yet?

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Michael: It counts as "classic" music, that's for sure. What was your DJ name? DJ 5000?

Heff said...

That's a TOUGH question, but it's up there somewhere.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Heff: It's up there fo sheezy.
