You're saying you're listening on a skipping LP, LB?

I didn't think anything was more annoying, musically, than a skipping LP. (OK, I'm skipping over the, uh, artists in the "worst bands" thread). Then I heard skipping CDs. Yikes! LPs on meth! Well, appropriate to these speeded-up times, I guess.

If it'll help, here's the lyrics.

(Of course if this makes the situation worse, I disclaim all responsibility).

I think if I've ever heard this song, it didn't stay with me. I have no memory of it whatsoever.

Our local CBC radio station took a poll in which they asked what was the worst song of all time. I said to my wife, "The Pia Coloda Song" just before they announced "The Pina Coloda Song."

For once in my life I sided with the majority.

Right now I'm listening to something almost as bad - "Aline" by Christophe on www.nostalgie.fr

"If you like pina colda. And getting caught in the rain." Blah, blah, blah. Can't recall the singer. I think it came out in the early 80s though.

Right now I'm listening to myself type and the low hum of my fan at work.

I'm just listening to the clicking of the keys and the faint street noises from outside.

I like pina coladas. The drink that is. Still don't recognize the song.

Mmmmmmmmm pina colada...

Here, Lima Bean, let me help you with that.

"This is the song that never ends
Cause it goes on and on my friends
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
And now they'll go on singing it forever just because
This is the song that never ends
Cause it goes on and on my friends..."

2 things on this thread made my go right back to my childhood:

1. the pina coloda song (which i happen to like, so there! )
2. the fact that it's skipping

i come from sudbury and lived behind an outdoor rink where they had speakers so that people could skate to music (gawd, what a quaint 1970's concept). anyways, they didn't have many records, but they did have the pina coloda song. only problem was that it skipped so the whole neighbourhood for about 1/4 mile around could hear:

'if you like/if you like/if you like'

'pina coloda and/pina coloda and/pina coloda and'

etc etc etc. what a hilarious memory - thanks for that!

as for what i've been listening to recently, a few things:

1. bryter layter by nick drake
2. innervisions by stevie wonder
3. lust for life by iggy pop
4. breakfast in america by supertramp

gosh, that's quite a retro list. must be nostalgic this week.

Ah, see, I know the Marguaritaville song.

King of Spain - I love that song. Yeah, I know it's cool now to dislike Moxy Fruvous, but I love them. I particularly love the song right after King of Spain on their Live album. They're having a concert in, I think, Philadelphia, and they do a song called "The Lowest Highest Point".

And basically, the song is a game for the audience, asking them which state in the US has the lowest highest point. It was great, the audience was shouting out answers like "New Hampshire" and "Maine" even though those are popular skiing destinations with mountains.

Anyhow, do any of you know which state has the lowest highest point? (No cheating! If you've heard the song, wait for someone else to answer first!)

OH THAT SONG! I didn't realize there was a midi file with that link!

I know the Pina Colada song! God, who doesn't know the Pina Colada song?

I don't really have an opinion on it either way. I usually hum along when it's on. It's catchy. I don't hate it or love it.

Wow, that's some site. Nothing like hearing "Arthur's Theme" done by the midi equivalent of pan flutes and pianos. Visit that site a lot, josh?

Hey Marc, how can you listen to all those tunes at once? "Passe Mo the Puck" rocks.

The girl I was dating when the Pina Coloda song was getting airplay loved the tune. She loved Pina Colodas...and Richard Gere's style in "American Gigolo," and she was training to be an executive secretary.

I was a beer and T-shirt guy.

More than just the stars were against us.

I once posted lyrics to a Ghandarvas song to babble but no one except ramsus_raven(!) got it. And since he spent the couple minutes to acknowledge my post I feel the need to do the same. I might not be listening to Moxy Fruvous right this minute but, Gir, the reference wasn't lost.

I got some green eggs and ham if you're interested.

There are quite a few one-or-two hit wonders you could do that with. For most of them, I can't even remember the names of the people who do them, particularly from that "love ballad easy listening" genre. Sure, I know the songs, but the artists? Fuggedaboudit.

Kids listen to that song, they want a Pina Colada, they hear it again, they want another one!), and Chuck Mangione (what do you mean you didn't write the Love Boat theme?

This is such an evil thread.

Night after night (well, last night and tonight), here I am, trying to shut down and feed the kitties their supper and trundle off to bed ...

But then all the babbleromantics suddenly resurface on this thread, reminding me of so much.

Thanks, audra: will check it out. And Michelle: you gotta hear Frank Sinatra sing "We'll gather lilacs in the spring." Imagine: a Mafia voice wringing every drop out of an Edwardian melody. What a strange century we all come from.

Bach. Though I can't have a conversation when
I listen to it because it seems to occupy the part of my brain I use to communicate.

KC Accident. Kraftwerk lounge remixes by Senor Coconut. Kruder & Dorfmiester, The Pixies and I've had that '200 Couches' Interpol tune stuck in my head for like 4 months.

Spiritualized has a new album coming out and they are coming to Toronto in sept.

speaking of the pina collada song...

'the sweetest thing' is the best movie EVER.

cameron diaz and christina applegate phone selma blair at work and put on a hilarious voice for the boss and then when she's on the phone they sing the pina collada song.

speaking of 'the sweetest thing' ... 'the penis song' is also a fave.

Je t'aime, moi non plus: that song is hilarious! Have you ever heard the version with Brigitte Bardot? It's even more over the top with Bardot's breathless signing, her heavy-breathing moans and lots of violins. Bardot apparently prevented the release of the song for some 20-odd years, I guess she was a little embarassed by her performance!

The line "Je vais et je viens entre tes reins" always cracks me up... Until Gainsbourg, who would have thought kidneys could be so sexual!

The Stooges - Raw Power

Is that Iggy's re-mix from a couple of years back, Tommy?

True Stooges fanatics, meanwhile, don't merely listen to Fun House. They listen to 1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions. One hundred and thirty-three "bonus tracks."

Curiously, there were probably more copies -- 3,000 -- of this pricey "limited edition" pressed than the original album sold before being (temporarily) deleted from the Warners cataloque. OK, that's probably exaggerated... still, in 1990 I read an interview with Iggy in which he recounted receiving his first Stooges royalty cheque -- earlier that year.

Brilliant album, but me, I'm not sure I could take three takes of "Loose," let alone thirty. Not without breaks anyway -- perhaps of bland old CSNY, like bread to cleanse the palate at a wine-tasting.

And I have to admit it: had I been of record-buying age in 1969-70, I would probably have gagged upon hearing the Stooges. My ears had to be softened up first -- or sensitized, as Lester Bangs would have had it -- by the Pistols, Clash, later Iggy, etc.

I bought that for the last serious boyfriend I had before Mark. I then had it shipped -- as a surprise -- to he and his friend when they were hanging out in Montreal.

You are indeed -- but it's only fair to point out that the DMM relinquished the title only on a technicality, i.e., we got married.

Four months before that event, for my birthday, she bought me the two-CD "Fully Loaded" edition of Loaded, complete with alternate tracks, demos, outtakes...

Anita Baker, "Caught Up in the Rapture". Evokes great nostalgic memories of fall '86.

At work today I listened to the Richard Thompson compilation Watching the Dark -- all 3 CD's! Took me all day. Sublime.

It was the re-mix, although I have a vinyl copy I bought 20 years ago, so I have both versions. Both have their charms.

I still prefer albums, you get bigger and better pictures, posters, liner notes and whatnot.

Right now I'm listening to Minor Threat - Discography. I seem to be reverting to being 16 again. Break out the Subhumans next.

Has anyone else seen the B&S DVD? I seriously die of cuteness every time I watch. They talk about IKEA furniture and what they like to cook. The video for Jonathan David is seriously one of the best things ever.

I saw above that you use Soulseek and I do as well. What's your username?

I actually quite like DCW. It's definitely different than their other stuff. Sinister is my favourite of their albums and I was unsure about the new stuff at first. But I managed to get down to Toronto for their show this autumn and after hearing the songs live, the new songs grew on me.

They played There's Too Much Love which I neverever thought I'd hear live in a million years, and I almost exploded with happiness! Did anyone else get a chance to see them this tour?

Initials BB by Serge Gainsbourg.

He ripped off a line from Dvorak's New World Symphony. The way he did it sounds good, though.

He "borrowed" from Chopin for Lemon Incest too.

Crash test Dummies

"The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead"

Peter Pumpkinhead came to town
Spreading wisdom and cash around
Fed the starving and housed the poor
Showed the vatican what gold's for
But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?
Oh my!
Peter Pumpkinhead pulled them all
Emptied churches and shopping malls
Where he spoke, it would raise the roof
Peter Pumpkinhead told the truth
But he made too many enemies...
Peter Pumpkinhead put to shame
Governments who would slur his name
Plots and sex scandals failed outright
Peter merely said
Any kind of love is alright
But he made too many enemies...
Peter Pumpkinhead was too good
Had him nailed to a chunk of wood
He died grinning on live TV
Hanging there he looked a lot like you
And an awful lot like me!
But he made too many enemies...
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkin
Hooray for Peter Pumpkinhead
Oh my oh my oh!
Doesn't it make you want to cry oh?

Eek I should change my location to Ottawa. I did happen to be so lucky as to see Metric last Tuesday however... CRazZY InSaNO amazing show. Anyone like funk-disco-rock or think that sounds cool... should definately go see these kids live. Wow


And I saw matt mays on thursday. He rocks so nicely. Too bad the show was ruined by the "headlining band" (a huge mistake in the order, matt mays was much more a headliner) The Trews who just turned a rocking night to a sleep fest (and they even turned the volume up for some reason).

Listening to Beautiful Nothing by Danny Michel (go new artist for Juno... after putting out 5 solo albums and 3 others with bands*cough*).

Got Jim Bryson and Ani DiFranco's newests both most excellent as well.

"The Spaceman" Gary Bell, talking about how Mel Gibson is hooked up with the Illuminati. His evidence is all the obvious Illuminati signs in "The Passion."

Wait, now Adolf Hitler was a sorcerer and one of the Seven Mystery Kings, but he connects Hitler with Mel, and Satan in the garden of Gethsemane.

There have been many telecasts and films of Giuseppe Verdi's beloved "La Traviata," but this presentation . . .is the first time an attempt has been made to present the opera in its actual milieu -- Paris. The opera was filmed in period buildings in and near the city, and it takes a viewer back a full century to the 1900 Exposition Universelle -- a time of salons and courtesans.

I was just listening to gospel music (Happy Day, Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho, This Little Light of Mine, etc., done by large gospel choirs).

I had it cranked up rather loud while doing the heavy housework and cleaning out closets (hey, who couldn't use a little heavenly inspiration to do that stuff?), and I got a knock on the door. I thought, uh oh, maybe it's too loud and it's a neighbour complaining. I've never had a neighbour complain about music before, but you never know.

Turned out to be a couple of Jehovah's Witnesses. So there I was, hair unkempt, wearing just a cotton nightie (because that's what I like to wear while doing heavy housework), holding a bag of papers for recycling, with gospel music playing (now quietly) in the background. They probably figured they'd caught a live one.

Anyhow, I told them I couldn't invite them in because I wasn't dressed for company, but I heard them out (why not, they were nice) and I took their magazines because I haven't read the Watchtower and Awake! in a while, and I have this weird liking for reading that stuff on occasion, just to keep my eye on what's happening in Watchtowerland.

Whenever I used to see some JW's sauntering up my walkway, I'd run to my stereo and crank up some really nasty Satanic death-metal (Slayer, say), and slap on my old Iron Maiden "Number of the Beast" T-shirt. Then I'd answer the door.

Worked like a charm.

Now I live in an apartment, so they can't get at me at all. Bwahhaaahaa!

I live in an apartment building too. A security building, even. I've been living in apartments since I was 20, and I think I've had JW's knock on my door in every single one of them.

I don't mind though - they don't bother me much. I usually just accept their magazines, and I often tell them I'm a Baptist, even though I'm about as lapsed a Baptist as you're gonna get. And, of course, with the gospel music playing in the background, I'm sure they believed me when I told them I was a Baptist and answered their introductory Bible question correctly.

I gave some JWs holy hell when they knocked on my apartment door. I told them to get the fuck out of my building and stop bothering people.

Who let those skidmarks in? It pisses me off when my neighbours let just anyone into the place. "Oh they're just jesus people, I'll let them in." Sure. And there have been 3 rapes in apartment buildings in my neighbourhood in the last couple of months because somebody let someone in who shouldn't be there.

If they come back, I'm grabbing a hockey stick or baseball bat.

Pixies show was pretty good, here in Saskatoon. Big audience. First half of the show, Black's voice was strong and everyone else was near perfect. Second half the vocals dimmed a bit. I was surprised at how good they sounded, considering they've (mostly) been apart for a decade. Check em out.

So ya, now I'm listening to my copy of the show. I guess now they burn 1000 copies of cds of the show and you can buy them for $30. Kinda neat.

The sound of Michelle (or Audra) locking this thread upon realizing its length.

Edited to add:

This thread is listed as having 172 replies, yet it does not look nearly that long... is it just me, or is something weird here?

Hey now, I still do my part to destroy the right wing!

Now: Waste of Paint, by Bright Eyes. Apparently it's my song.

quote:
You are "Waste of Paint". You can be a very over analyzing person and you are sort of lost. You aren't really sure where you're going with your life but for now you hold some hope that you will indeed get to where you are going. Oh yeah, and that thing called "love", you feel it's just a game of chance. A game you are not good at.

So true. So true...

Hmm. I'm listening to the Leafs/Flyers post mortem on mojo, but ya got me thinkin' about Ry Cooder and CBC. I have Cooder's Chicken Skin Music, just because back in 1988 I had to have a copy of the theme for Alan McFee's Eclectic Circus.

I can't stand The Vinyl Caf, even though I used to like Stuart MacLean when he'd show up on Peter Gzowski's show (on which he'd talk about ducks and ground hogs).

I think it's Satanic as well, as without vile demonic noise like this to lead the way, disco could never have happened.


I love 'Popcorn'. I can remember it as the theme song to a CTV 'futurist' show called 'Here Come The Seventies' that we always watched when I was a kid.

Boomtang Boys do a great updated version, BTW.

The only CBC radio theme I can identify by name is "Cantaloop", by US3, used by the Afternoon Show (in BC at least). Based on the old Herbie Hancock tune.

Plus that Moe Koffman thing on As It Happens.

PS: Verbatim, I believe "Jungle Boogie" was by Kool & the Gang, not the Parliafunkadelicment Thang.

Hmmm... you may be correct, sir.

And Oldgoat, when I say the "corner pub" I am being most definitively literal -- it is on the corner of my cross-street. I don't have to drink and drive! In fact I almost don't have to walk!

Get down! Get back up!

I cheated and downloaded this (which I never do), but then I won't be within hours of a decent record store on the day it comes out next month.

And it's sounding fantastic so far; just wonderful.

Um...I'm listening to that show where the person tries to fake being a profession that they're not. (My mother is watching it and the computer is in the living room).

Lately..."In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel and "Romeo and Juliet" by Dire Straits...over and over and over...LOL.

al-Q, I've been looking for a song for a while, and I keep meaning to ask you the title and the band.

The lyrics I remember go as follows:

"Up in Harlem, at a table for two
There were four of us: me, your big feet and you.
From the ankles up, I'd say you sure are sweet,
From there down, there's just too much feet.

Yes, your feet's too big
Don't want you cause your feet's too big
Can't use you cause your feet's too big
I really hate yuh, cause your feet's too big, yeah."

(To everyone else - I know it sounds horrid, but it's a really funny song.)

Fugazi 9-4-93 Detroit Michigan Plaza Ampitheater

As Fugazi has not been able to compile a live album from their master tapes, they instead decided to pick 20 shows (including their first in 1987 at the Wilson Center in Washington D.C.) and sell these CD's online for ridiculously low prices. I don't believe the live series is actually associated with Dishord records (as it was mailed from L.A. rather than Dischord house in Arlington, Va) but the customer service on ordering was amazing as with Dischord (I received my shipment within a week of ordering).

This particular show was recorded shortly after In on the Killtaker came out and has many of those songs but also includeds earlier tracks such as Margin Walker, Waiting Room, and Repeater. The CD closes with my favorite rock instrumental "Sweet and Low" off of Killtaker.
