Oh, plus some Fleetwood Mac and Bob Dylan.

"Glad to be Gay", by Tom Robinson

D'uohh!

I'm not, really. It's just an awfully damn catchy tune.

...not that I wouldn't be glad if I was; it's just, you know, that whole orientation confusion thing. Getting hit on makes me uncomfortable....

I prefer stuff by "The Ramones" to sing to, because Joey Ramone and I had the same three note vocal range.

Rockaway Beach, Blitzkrieg Bop, and I Wanna Be Sedated are fun tunes to belt out.

I sometimes imitate Neil Young somewhat well, the trick is to use a falsetto and sing through your nose, the accent comes natural when you get that part of it down. It's even funnier if you start changing the lyrics in a Yankovichian way, on the fly.

I like to sing in the van during drive times with my girls. I implore them to sing along and they refuse saying "I can't sing." "Niether can I," I tell them, "and you don't see it stopping me."

The "Tea Party" can be fun to sing to. Last week I was in the van, leather coat on, wrap around welding glasses on my face due to the low setting sun, singing:

"Now that the thrill
of the massacre's over,
Isn't it sweet when she
sucks on your viens?

I've waited so long,
I've waited so long,
I've waited, I've waited,
So
Long."

Judging by the stares I got from the ladies in adjacent vehicles at the lights, I can only surmise that my voice must be quite pleseant, at times.

I like to start my day by singing and swaying around the living room cheek-to-cheek with a warm travel mug full of joe, playing Eva Cassidy's version of Wade In The Water, a traditional gospel song, at high volume.

Cassidy's a real find. Although very shy, she recorded a few albums in the 90's, and became a big hit in clubs in Washington, D.C. She had tremendous promise. Possessing an almost supernatural talent, her voice is incredibly flexible; her albums contain songs in a variety of genres. She also had the rare ability to infuse every song with her own soul--like all great singers, listening to her is very personal. She was struck with terminal cancer in 1996 after recording a live album, and passed away some months later, at 33.

This from the same guy who doesn't like some of the more recent music because they're by, what was it, gen x musicians who have that whiny tinge to their voice.

And you like NEIL YOUNG!? Talk about the king of WHINE.

"Keep me serrrrchin for a harrrrrrrrt of go-o-o-old, an I'm gittin awwwld..."

Brr.

Oh around our house I like to cut loose with some Howard Keel (Bless yer beautiful hide, Lonesome Polecat and such when I'm not singing One Week by BNL. The kids must love it cause the scream and shout like way back when Elvis and the Beatles were all the rage.

I was a-listenin' to the Stanley Brothers today and found myself de-harmonizin' along with Rank Stranger and Man of Constant Sorrow.

I like to sing along to Elvis songs too.

Black Flag.

"TV Party Tonight" is the name of a punk show on Saskatoon Community radio, and the above tune is their theme song.

"...we've got nuthin' better to do
Than watch TV and have a couple of brews..."

A lot of Great Big Sea music, Eric Bogle, Bob Marley (especially "Redemption Song"), and of course, nearly everything by the Arrogant Worms. Those guys are hilarious!
