My son had a unique opportunity yesterday to visit a major league ballpark – including the visitor clubhouse/locker room. Among the interesting (and colorful) things he had to report (we’ll skip that the boys ventured to guess what former opponent had left a dookie in the toilet – just visualizing the entire group traipsing through to have a look kind of left me fettered) was that they had so many iTunes songs that they filled 3 laptops – I find this remarkable in several ways, but that’s all technical gobbledy gook and that’s not what this post is about.
To quote the boy “I’ll be you can’t name a song that they didn’t have” – well of course I immediately named one from my own iTunes (and in fact I pride myself on having LOTS of songs that I’ll bet no one else has)… the song that I named, which is not by any means the most unique song on there, because it is afterall from a WELL KNOWN group… ‘Piss on the Wall’ by the J.Geils Band.
So to my 3 or 4 readers and any other poor soul who stumbles across this… I challenge each of you to post a reply indicating the first song that pops into your head from your own iTunes (or equivalent music collection) that would fit the bill… [not on the huge ballpark collection that actually takes up 3 laptops]. And also to comment if any of the songs named by others are in your collection… and let’s be honest peeps… I could name a hundred weird ass songs that I don’t have, because frankly they suck (not that I don’t have some songs that suck, I actually have hundreds of songs that suck, but occasionally I find myself wanting them for some sort of reference, etc.) I would ask that you not actually use ‘garage band’ songs… because after all that is a little unfair, they should really be songs that would be available if any of us really wanted to have them – and maybe even a recommendation… let me tell you Piss on the Wall is a rather good drinking song, as are most of the J. Geils Band songs (excepting of course those top 40 singles (Freeze Frame; Centerfold) they put out in the early 80’s that is what most of you know them for). While I am on my J. Geils kick, let me also let you know that THE BEST LIVE ALBUM OF ALL TIME has to be J. Geils Band – "Live" Full House – my mom just got me a copy on C.D. because well, I killed the vinyl, I don’t have a 8-track player anymore, and my cassette is scratchy and my previous CD must have been stolen by some beer drinking pal that discovered just what a fucking kick ass drinking album it is! Yes I have owned multiple copies of this gem, because if I had to take one album to a deserted island, it would be a front runner – not saying it’s the one… but it would damn sure make the short list.
heres a crazy assed link I ran across when I googled Piss On The Wall caveat, not for the faint of heart or people who aren't parents of boys
