See? I knew I'd like your answers. There are several songs on here that I don't recognize so I will have to check them out next time I have access to iTunes. Between you and Parce, I've got a whole list of stuff to discover. I love that!

So, you have a lot of Marley but not my favorite: Three Little Birds. That song gets me every time.

I love the classic Beastie Boys selections, too. I saw them in concert in 1995. It was in a small venue and the show was absolutely amazing. Luscious Jackson was the opening act. I was in absolute heaven!

Oh, and just to help your site stats: Debbie Does Dallas, dick, cock, hot sex.

That should get you a few hits. :-)

Thanks MWN!

I confess, I actually do not own any Bob Marley, those are the two songs I hear on Egg Radio and love- I need to break down and buy some.

Love the Beasties- G. Monkey has seen them a bunch of times, but I haven't yet. Rumor has it that they're touring this summer. I've got my fingers crossed.

So when do we see your soundtrack?

And ET, you know that I love you (baby, but you just won't let me)...you definitely require Marley. Especially any time there may be a boss lady nearby.

NICE list MWN!

OK, it has been decided, once the paychecks begin flowing regularly again, I will pick up some Heinlein, Sickened, and a Bob Marley album or two.

And I have the strange desire to go out and drive really fast/far and listen to your driving songs.

3:49 PM  
Blogger parcequilfaut said...

Dude! MWN! That ruled! It would be a 3-disc set, but hey...

Also, if you like Ride of the Valkyrie when you're driving too fast, try out O, Fortuna.

ET, what Heinlein, you think?

12:53 AM  
Blogger Memphis Word Nerd said...


Yeah, that was kind of long. Sadly, that's the scaled down version. I left off the country and the rap. :-)

Okay, Ghost of Goldwater, it's your turn...

Blogger Special Sauce said...

MWN, I don't think Goldie reads this anymore. Though I think he would have very interesting musical choices.

ET, probably Stranger, first, then The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.

Oh, and the Ludacris story-

All I can remember about the song is being in the car with G. Monkey. We desperately needed to get our Ice Cream on. We were headed to Friendly's, and stuck behind idjit after idjit, and finally that song came on.

And we died. Laughing. Hysterically. And thinking somewhere in there they said something about bubblegum. We ended up sitting in the car, in the parking lot, with the radio cranking, laughing our asses off, as families with little kids just looked at us like we were insane.

Heh. Love that.
