top 5 musical thingys

From The Mistress

Top 5 songs you like to sing along with…

1. Supper’s Ready – Genesis
In college my friend Keith and I majored in figuring out the lyrics to this opus…prayer capsule indeed…

2. The Revealing Science of God – Yes
Spiritual and philospohic hogwash set to music.  Each side of Tales could have been chopped into a 10 minute ditty making a half decent single album.  Rolling Stone’s initial review in 1974 was correct…Tales was just too long.  Even Wakemen couldn’t stand it (he left soon after the Tales tour ended).  Nonetheless, memorizing the opening and closing chants of side 1 was another area of study in college.

3. They’re Coming To Take Me Away Ha-Ha! – Napoleon XIV
Especially while driving with the windows open.

4. Tubular Bells – Mike Oldfield
Go figure…

5. Bohemian Like You – Dandy Warholes
Only because it took me forever to memorize the lyrics…

    Yes I had to yell that one…how exactly do you sing along to Tubular Bells?

  2. louie louie by the kingsmen

    wipe out by the surfaris

    most of the santana stuff i have on my ipod

    ok ok…

    it’s fun to recreate the scene from wayne’s world with the limelets when bohemian rhapsody comes on

    also i’ve been known to sing and dance to love shack by the b-52s even if it’s playing in the grocery store….much to the mortification of the progeny.

  4. …two slightly distorted guitars…

    Okay Coops–your tag for this is just classic.
    And #4 is now stuck in my head… thanx! 😛

    Have a great weekend!!


  6. I remember listening to side B on your #3 and it was backwards. That was one STRANGE song!
