CIVL Station Manager Aaron Levy had a lovely visit with former SUS VP internal Jennifer Nelson this past weekend. Here are some snapshots of the evening, which included much ado about nothing.
Drunken Sailor – “Irish Rovers”
What will we do with the drunken sailor? Make him walk the twisty slide plank in the backyard! But not until you’ve constructed such an apparatus, one that provides an enchanted upbringing of fantasy and euphoria. It’s also impossible to go wrong with accordions and banjos. Or is it?!
Bloodhound Gang – “Bad Touch”
This could be considered to be in bad taste. It’s sexual, crude (though not quite as much as the band’s underground runaway hit “Chasey Lane”), it’s an international superhit, and why a good deal of fans fell out of love with the group who told us the roof was on fire.
The Beatles — “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”
Remember the TV show Life Goes On? Probably not. It wasn’t exactly a Family Ties-style success. But this song WAS used as the theme music, and ironically enough, the opening baseline to this piece from the White Album Side B has been ripped off for yet another astronomical hit!
The Offspring – “Why Don’t You Get A Job”
Never been a fan of the however satirical usage of the term “bitch” in this song’s opening line, but that’s the point of The Offspring post-Smash, right? Listen to the chorus of this one, and then go back to Ob-La-Di, and tell me it’s not a straight rip.
