Deep Thought

I have only ever heard four of Gawker's "10 Party Songs We Never Ever Want to Hear Again."

Does this make me 60% old or 60% too cool for school?


And don't say, No, this means you are 100% too uncool to get invited to parties. Haters.


Also, this is not an especially heinous song, to my taste, certainly not to the point of making anyone's Ten 2B Banned List:

(alt. video link)

I mean, that? What's cooler than hip-hop in an Irish bar? Don't answer that.

But seriously ... compared to, say, Bob Cigar and his old-time rock and roll? Now THAT song makes me want to take those old records of the shelf and convert them back to the hydrocarbons whence they came.

Now, I know what you're thinking, if you're even (low bar alert) cooler than me. You're thinking, How in the name of decency and good taste did that list NOT include "YMCA?"

Forget it. Don't go there. Not until you've been to an office party at an engineering firm -- there is no other song so good at getting the tape-on-the-glasses crowd (my people!) out on the floor. This has been proven, with sliderules.

Here's a party song you might like.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I do like that song, but for complex reasons. For one thing, I just think the lyrics are hilarious, from beginning to end. It's definitely not my usual musical genre. The hot women are fun to look at. Appreciation of the actual music is only the 3rd reason I enjoy that particular song. (Actually, it's the VIDEO I like more than the song. :-)

Um. Come to think of it, "complex reasons" probably isn't quite right! :-D
