Sometimes, if I get bored at work, I start thinking about strange things like bizarre movie connections, or people I haven't seen in 10 years, or some dumb shit that happened in the fall of 1993. Sometimes my thoughts flow into pretty good ideas, but more often than not, it's stupid stuff. I usually make plans to share those thoughts in this forum, but I sometimes have a hard time getting it to make any sense. Once I start writing it, I realize that it's no good.
I'm going to share some of the sick, twisted shit that was in my head last night. I will also offer the caveat that the following is in extraordinarily poor taste. I am fully aware that if Hell exists, they have a place reserved for me there.
Because of all the really bad Katrina and the Waves references lately, I started thinking about the worlds most tasteless mix-tape. Actually, I only came up with seven songs. What do you want from me? I was at work(i.e. not able to cheat by doing internet searches), and although I'm pretty good, I'm not a walking Trouser Press guide. Without further ado, here's the tunes. Some more tasteless than others.
THE WORLD'S MOST INSENSITIVE MIX-TAPE
- Katrina and the Waves -- Walkin' On Sunshine
Scorpions -- Rock You Like a Hurricane
Bob Dylan -- Blowin' in the Wind
John Denver -- City of New Orleans¹
Pixies -- Stormy Weather
Love and Rockets -- Waiting for the Flood
Led Zeppelin -- When the Levee Breaks
That was about all I could do. I started to feel bad about how wicked I am.
I do feel bad for those hundreds of thousands of people whose lives are in complete turmoil right now, and making light of the situation isn't a very nice thing to do, but I did offer the caveat. Several times.
Cat Power You Are Free
¹ I know that John Denver didn't write this song, but at the time, I had no idea who did, and this is the version we all know, anyway.
