Another Random Ten fo' that ass.

It's Friday, so let's do the iPod shuffle:

1. Basement Jaxx, "Red Alert"
2. Tone Def, "Just a Human Being" (from the "Fear of a Black Hat" soundtrack)
3. Pet Shop Boys, "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing"
4. Underworld, "Push Downstairs"
5. James Brown, "The Payback"
6. Run-DMC/Aerosmith, "Walk This Way"
7. Joey Altruda, "Mucci's Jag Mk.II"
8. The Who, "The Seeker"
9. Underworld, "Born Slippy"
10. Avenue Q soundtrack, "The Money Song"

Let me just express my deepest sorrow for those who don't have the Avenue Q soundtrack because they a) hate musicals, or b) hate puppets. That show has some of the funniest songs ever performed on a stage, and while I'm ordinarily in with the crowd that hates musicals, I can't turn my back on any show that has songs like "You Can Be Loud As the Hell You Want When You're Makin' Love" and "My Girlfriend Who Lives in Canada":

Her name is Alberta
She lives in Vancouver
She cooks like my mother
And sucks like a Hoover

Wow, I don't have the soundtrack yet, but now I'm off to get it!

I especially like the refrain at the end of each verse of "If You Were Gay"

Because you see
If it were me
I would feel free to say
That I was gay!
(But I'm not gay.)


Just something about the way the Ernie-clone punctuates that "but I'm not gay" line is hilarious.

And sometimes "I Wish I Could Go Back To College" makes me cry.

"There's a Fine, Fine Line" makes me weep, though I always thought the funniest title of that album is "What Do You Do With a BA in English?"

I didn't realize that all these straight people could confess to loving a show other than "Phantom."
