What's a really great song I can listen to RIGHT NOW??
I need an intervention, a serious one. I have listened to "Lucky Guy" by The Muffs about 150 times today. I'm cracked out. I can't stop. Any ideas for something, anything else would be appreciated. What's your favorite song, or hell, even your least favorite? I keep hitting 'play' again...

I can't believe you did that to me right before bed. I'm gonna hear that in my sleep, lol.

Holy shit. All of a sudden I smell cologne. I am alone. It is really, really strong. Is it some kind synesthesia induced by this video. This video hurts me. ow. ow. ow.

Who is the guitar player in this, do you know?

back to lucky guy...

You've no ambition and only ever sit around
I don't know whyyyyyyyyyyy
And you know it's true and you never wanted anything
You're a lucky guyyyyyyyyyyy

3. The guitarist and founding member goes by the name 'Hayashi'.
I don't know if it's just a stage name, but it wouldn't surprise me.

5. it's not on youtube though.
and I'm too broke to download anything new. This is pitiful. I slept this evening so I'm not sleepy, there is nothing on tv, and I have a Muffs habit, and not the good kind.

16. I still want to re-record "Salt in My Tears" as a country song.
It almost begs for a steel guitar. "I'll sit around and drink a few more beers..."

15. Yes, but confess,
You can't get that song out of your head now, can you?

"Because, If you're happy and you know it..........."


Made you smile though.

20. One of these should do the job.
Many of these came from the "Post your favorite long-forgotten or little known 80s music video" thread I started in the Lounge a couple months ago, and has now vanished into obscurity. I wish I could find it again, because I want to add several videos to my YouTube Favorites folder.

26. I am so glad you popped up here!
That song is awesome, but really sad (steps ascending). One of my ex's best friends shot himself accidentally, right in front of my ex. They had been best friends all through school, it was so sad. He was just playing with a gun and said 'look, I'm gonna shoot myself' and there was a bullet in it and he didn't know it.

I can't believe, I've got the Mars Volta sitting right on my computer screen, see, your the top icon:



and I didn't even think about it. That's how Muffed out I am tonight. It's time for Frances the Mute. If that don't cure me, I'd best just be shot. :hi:

50. One way to interpret that video...
The poor, abused inmate is America. The psychotic orderly is the Bush administration. And the band? DU on guitar, Daily Kos on vocals, Crooks & Liars on keyboards.

I looked last night but missed it...good ol' youtube. this video takes a while to start for some reason but it does get going eventually.

I love the way she screams on here and the 50's be-bop kind of melody.

52. Just picking one
I'll pick "Kiss Me Til It Bleeds" by Nina Gordon. It's on her wonderful Bleeding Heart Graffiti CD. She's beating Liz Phair in the pop department. For Liz, I'd give whitechocolatespaceegg A+, self-titled a B (blended in a bit much,) and Somebody's Miracle an A. Nina gets 2 A+s. I like her solo stuff even more than her old band, Veruca Salt. Veruca Salt's Resolver (done without Nina) was pretty bad, unfortunately.
