Lots of songs make me laugh. I chose two! BONUS DAY! The first one is “In These Shoes” by Kirsty MacColl. I really like songs about shoes. I don’t know why.
The second one is a John Lennon laugh riot supposedly based on a real guy they met with the Maharishi, “The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill” by The Beatles. Featuring “Not when he looks so fierce!” by Yoko.

I didn’t want anything that was too much of a downer. I picked “Tusk” by Fleetwood Mac. If a college band cheerleader rock song gets everybody marching around the funeral home, I think that would be pretty cool.

Lovely Wife Cheryl and I picked a song together, and talked about it, and agreed. We still love “Magnet and Steel” by Walter Egan. We had matching T-shirts that said MAGNET and STEEL on them. Awwww. We didn’t play any songs at our wedding, but this would have been appropriate.

When I lived by myself, I’d go home after work… call every one I knew… if they were all busy that night, then I’d play Eagles records and feel sorry for myself. I’m not good at living alone.
Here is “Desperado” by the Eagles and Linda Ronstadt. I know The Dude doesn’t like The Eagles, but that’s okay by me. I can abide that.

Sure, it’s a dumb song. But I like “All I Wanna Do” by Sheryl Crow. It’s not the best Sheryl song, and you may not like her at all. But I do, and it’s my list, so shut up. I’m busy being happy.

Is there a more angry song than “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine? I loved this song when I was just a poser and had only ever heard the radio edit. When I heard the real chorus at the end, this song became the angriest thing ever. It makes me angry just thinking about it.
Video clip is the hardcore version, not safe for tiny, fragile ears. Unless they’re really angry.

Here we are again, music fans, another song from my favorite album by my favorite band: “Low” by Cracker. Another “hit” from Kerosene Hat which you might have actually heard. The popularity of this song may have something to do with being stoned. Those days are far behind me, I assure you. But I do remember them.
