    I’d do something like:

    Thunder – Born (I prefer the former, but the latter may be a greater song and the crescendo into “highways jammed with broken heroes” is the greatest moment in American rock)
    Badlands
    Jungleland
    Darkness
    Promised Land
    10th
    Atlantic City

    :lol:   ITT if you reorder a 200 song list I’m going to find a way to 5150 you despite not living in California nor knowing who you are

     

    5150? Van Halen has at least 73 better songs, and “Dreams” is NOT one of them… :ozzy:

    Rocky Ground is such a PC fag choice at 53.

    There’s ten better songs on Wrecking Ball! They just don’t “a message” or a girl rapping on them.

    I thought 5150 was only in California, which was not going to stop it from being shoehorned into my post.

    Hate Tom Joad. And Rosalita not top five is crazy.

    Yeah I try to pretend I like Tom Joad because it belongs at the end of a TV show pilot or some shit, but I’m just lying. I have no problem with Rosalita being there. It’s a touch to hokey for me. Meeting at 80 something? Come on pookie.

    I’ve mostly grown tied of the big Springsteen songs – I’ve just heard them too many times. Save for Dancing in the Dark. Great song

    Here’s a few others I really like

    For You

    Im on Fire

    Where the Bands Are

    Downbound Train

    Better Days

    I Wanna Be with You

    Q- So why an annual made up Memorial Day Weekend Mixtape post?

    A- Great question, Q. It goes back to banished poster Box Score. He would get together Memorial Day weekend with his group of irl friends on Cape Cod somewhere (stay off the dunes!) and whether the responsibility was thrust upon him, or he took up the job on his own, he would compile a mixtape (a mix compact disk or iTunes playlist, more likely) to act as a soundtrack for the party. It would be phenomenally eclectic, to borrow a phrase from one of the Andelman boys, and per his directive, would have to be played in order. He would post the tracklist the Thursday before the holiday weekend. That stopped after he was sent to the Phantom Zone by Mark. So after a two or three year absence, I felt a parodic version of the much-missed list would be a fun thing to do. So I did. It being Memorial Day, many of the songs are about paying tribute or saying goodbye to those who had gone on before us.

    Here’s a rundown on Disk one from the 2014 tape:

    1.Candelaria’s NL Wins (Goodbye Smilin’ Joe) A variant on Sir Elton John’s ‘Candle in the Wind’, in this case a tribute to the thought long-gone and hard to find erstwhile Board member Smilin’ Joe Hesketh in the place of Norma Jean Baker or Princess Diana of Wales . I have wanted one of our parodists to take a whack at putting together some lyrics, but so far, no nothing. –The Mamboquette Septet – a 9 piece band, naturally, suitably named after the one time Red Sox hurler.

    2. Requiem For a Coachman – A musical elegy to the late* Ozzy, the Board’s own coachman & Senior member of The Livery of Misery . St Botolph’s Street Garage Men’s Chorus – the location of the cab company that Ozzy drove for lo those many years. (*-gone from the Board, at least. Has been ‘Pat Burns’ dead before.)

    3. I’m That Guy- Jimmy and the Reb Horns – After the much missed character actor/Board favorite James Rebhorn, a first ballot ‘That Guy’ from TV and movies.

    4. Googly Has Gone For a Hipster – A takeoff of the title of the folksong ‘Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier’ for the former Quick Slants cohost Mary Paoletti who abruptly left TEC and the bright lights of CSN for rural northern New England to wed (& who seems to have actually married not a bearded hipster but a former Special Forces soldier) – Slantz – The band name is a play on the title of her show.

    5.Talk Lobster– a clear titular reference to the B-52’s ‘Rock Lobster’, making light of WEEI short-timer Mike Salk’s referred to but never clearly seen mangled hand –Death Cat For Salkie – A mix of the names of the band Death Cab for Cutie, and Michael Holley’s since-disproved similarity to the infamous ‘Nursing Home Death Cat’ when it came to his cohosts on WEEI.

    6. Will The Franchise Survive? (Farewell Paul Walker) – Pinkberry Bill and The Aceman – Refers to Great White Dhale’s oddly emotional reaction to the admittedly strange podcast remembrances of the dead-too-soon actor Paul Walker by Bill Simmons and Adam Carolla, the franchise being the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies.

    7. Theme from Crime Story (Runaway) –Del Shannon– Real song, real singer. Perhaps included as an oblique reference to the Aaron Hernandez ‘crime story’ much in the news that year.

    8. Come Cruisin’ (live w/monologue) -Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band – Real band, plausible song – link

    9. A Chico Divided– Much like George Costanza, it was feared Independent Chico, divided against itself, could not survive, and that Board posters could then no longer live vicariously through his exploits. – Heirloom Tomatoes (w/Neko Case) Chico and his then fiancée would travel out to ‘know what would be fun?’ events such as heirloom tomato festivals on the periphery of mortgage-free Western Massachusetts, much to the Board’s amusement/dismay. Real singer Ms. Case is a fave of Mr. Walker, both musically and aesthetically.

    10. Fake Dog is Real Gone – [Redacted ] I don’t want to talk about this one. :ozzy:

    11. King Richard’s Faire/Canticle –Mutton Lou & the Victuallers – During the heyday(?) of the Mutnansky & Merloni show on WEEI, I was amused that the announcers calling them ‘Mut & Lou’ sounded more like the name of sone itinerant victualler at a Renaissance Faire; Mutton Lou. The song is based on Simon & Garfunkel’s Scarborough Fair/Canticle. Changed to refer to the annual event held in Carver, MA.

    12. Peanuts -Little Joe Cook & The Thrillers – Real singer, real song. Mr. Cook died some months before, and was famous, after a fashion, in the area for said song.

    13. I Gave My Love A Cherry (The Riddle Song) – Pete Seeger – Real singer, real song, most famously performed in National Lampoon’s Animal House immediately before Bluto, more in sorrow than in anger, smashes the singer’s guitar in the stairwell. Seeger was a famous protest song-singin’ folk singer who died in January of 2014.

    14. Cedar Junction Bound (theme to Smokey Ends A Bandit) – After the ‘Smokey & the Bandit theme, the Jerry Reed-sung ‘Eastbound and Down’– Bristol County Sheriff’s Department Voice Ensemble, T.M. Hogdson, Director – “Smokey” was of course the Board nickname for TE Aaron Hernandez, who was convicted of murdering Odin Lloyd, who was a semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits. Sherriff Hogdson was a daily fixture on the news during the Hernandez trial.

    15. Rumor Has Had It – The Ivory Tower Threadkillers – Based on when Bruce had to nuke the original Rumor & Innuendo Thread from orbit (The only way to be sure) in the aftermath of la affaire Xxx Xxxxx, which is also referred to in Track 10.

    16. Sex Cow – Alison Krauss & Emmylou Harris (from the ‘Ode to Oderus’ tribute album) -Real song, Dave Brockie, BKA ‘Oderus Urungus’, frontman for the indescribable band GWAR had died that calendar year, so an entirely fictional tribute album, featuring unlikely contributors as the bluegrass singer Krauss and folk/country singer Harris, who probably don’t even know the lyrics to Sex Cow, or would want to.

    17. You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go – Shawn Colvin – Real song – one of Bobby Dylan’s, real singer, who infamously had a Grammy Award acceptance interrupted by Ol’ Dirty Bastard, (“Wu-Tang is for the children…”) prefiguring Kanye West’s interruption of Taylor Swift a decade later. (This was coincidentally the same Grammy Awards where Bob Dylan’s performance was crashed by that shirtless ‘Soy Bomb’ guy gyrating in the background.)

    ..Some housekeeping from Disk One, ‘Come Cruisin’ of course is a Bruce/ESB take on the Board favorite ‘Indianapolis Monologue’ from Jaws. And it seems I jumped the gun a bit in discounting Mike Holley’s Death Cat ability.  :ohmy:   :lol:

    On to Disk Two:

    1. Proud Young Americans– The theme song to the great “The Legend of Young Larry Bird” skit from The Kroll Show. Link. We had a lot of fun with that one, but keepin’ jokes runnin’ for months is for showoffs.  – Ron Muskmelon Catamount – I divined that the singer of this very Mellencamp-sounding song would have to be very similarly named, so; catamount is another name for a cougar, muskmelon has two of the same important syllables as Mellencamp, and Ron rhymes with John. Ohh yeahhhh.

    2. Revival/Midnight Rider/In Memory of Elizabeth Reed (Live)– Real songs, by The Allman Brothers Band –Mick Gindaloon and his Dumb Polacks– There was a poster on the Legacy Board who apparently didn’t understand that just because he didn’t find these terms offensive, that didn’t mean everyone else felt the same. He also occasionally let slip he was a huge Allman’s fan. Combine three of the slurs and you have a lead singer and a band that exclusively plays Allman Brothers cover tunes.

    3. Three Canada Geese- A north of the border play on ‘Three Little Birds’ by Bob Marley, the song that was Shane Victorino’s at-bat music during the 2013 World Series-winning season for the Red Sox. Gord Marley and the Whalers – Chico once got to work a Lupo’s show featuring, no lie; ‘Yellow Dubmarine’, a reggae Beatles tribute band. According to Marty Nopointe ‘Yellow Dubmarine, (is) the North East’s 3rd most popular reggae tribute band behind Gord Marley and the Whalers and Florian Dancehall.” Those are good names. (/Jack Horner) You can’t just leave those names on the table.

    4. Advanced Metrics– Fake song. Probably an instrumental. Three Dudes in a Titty Bar– A poster’s suggestion for a good name for a band. Thus included. Thanks, poster whose name I forgot who suggested that.

    5. #yum –A hashtag used by Xex Xxyxx, usually associated with twitpics of inedible looking things like undercooked chicken with ‘quac.’. – Jenny and the Krylonettes – Has a Motown feel to the naming convention, Krylon of course being a brand name of spraypaint alluding to her Trumpian orange spray tan.

    6. Love You Madly– Real song by Cake- Rumford Eagle – fake Maine-based cover band, of which Scott & whereispete are ostensibly members. Dan is most likely not.

    7. Under the Bridge-Real song, by the Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Who? Me? DUKA Posters – Trolls, as tradition dictate, live under bridges. So a bridge song seemed in order.

    8. 4’33” – joemarine corpsband (w/ LongTimeLoafer) Real song, by composer John Cage, consisting of four minutes and thrirty-three seconds of silence. And performed expertly here by two very quiet, lurksome posters. whereispete appreciated this one.

    9. March of the Tomato Cans – C.H.B. Shankovsky – After “March of the Toy Soldiers” from The Nutcracker Suite, by Pyotr Ilitch Tchaikovsky, substituting in the tired descriptor (originally a boxing term for a pushover palooka) of Patriots opponents (sometimes the other AFC East teams, other times any defeated team) by Curly Haired Boyfriend Shankovsky, also known as Dan Shaugnessy. Cheers!

    10. Move TE – A term sportswriters latched onto that year to sound knowledgeable- Ivan Fears and the Plastic Yards Trio– based after the Plastic Ono Band name, ‘plastic yards’ being a demeaning way to describe the Pats running game by someone, perhaps Ron Borges or a similar anjerk. Ivan Fears is a long-time Patriots assistant coach, presently the RB coach. But you know that.

    11. Soul Ska –Byron Lee & the Dragonaires – Real song, real band, lifted directly from one of Box Score’s pre-Memorial Day posts containing his weekend playlist. So many other songs lost with the InVision Board. 

    12. Nobody’s Fault Nobody Does It Better – Whole Lotte Lenye– A Frost Class Mark contribution, positing a band combining Led Zeppelin tunes and James Bond theme songs. Lotte Lenye being the knife-toed SMERSH/SPECTRE officer Rosa Klebb in From With Russia With Love, and the song a hybrid of ‘Nobody’s Fault But Mine’ and “Nobody Does It Better” from The Spy Who Loved Me.

    13. Bananas -Little Joe and the Lost METCO Tapes – A play on Disk One’s Little Joe Cook song, substituting one food for another, this one by The Franklin Park Zoo’s Own Little Joe the gorilla, impetus for an infamous Dennis & Callahan gaffe when the escaped simian was spotted & captured near a bus stop, prompting a telling exchange where they jokingly theorized Little Joe was a ‘METCO gorilla’, waiting for a bus ‘out to Lexington.’ This resulted in a two day suspension for D & C. The audio records of this event, if still in the WEEI archives, are at present unavailable.

    14. Only A Northern Korean Song- Yalu SubmarineA The North Best Korean Beatles tribute band. Dear Respected Comrade Leader Kim Jong-Un arranged all the songs and played all the instruments on the eponymous album. The original, non-Juche version was ‘Only a Northern Song.’

    15. Slapdick Organization – An apt Board description of the AFC team from New York that plays its home games in New Jersey. Stolen and Disseminated– A frequent occurrence with Board posts in the age of Twitter, and to a lesser degree Facebook.

    16. Rolling Thunder March –Albany State University Symphonic Band- Real march, real band – A shout-out to the university Fingersandwich is matriculating through. View/listen here.

    17. Sie Haben Völlig Recht – German for ‘You’re absolutely right.’ Die Mazz– Again, it’s in German, it doesn’t say ‘die Mazz’, as in ‘Tony Masserotti should die in a fire’, it says ‘the Mazz’. And as we know from The Simpsons, no one who speaks German could be an evil man. But really; die Mazz.

    18-Visualization of the Space-Mind Gargamel VI: Impulsion to Nowhere – Based on a ChicoWalker original composition:
    23 Nov 2010 – 11:11 AM
    Ugh- getting into a music argument with a hardcore Queensryche fan is just lying head down, legs up and pissing in your own face.
    “You’re RIGHT, he can definitely play 1000 scales faster than anyone! You say his drum kit has how many pieces? What’s the name of this song? Visualization of the Space-Mind Gargamel IV: The Halcyon Call of the Forgotten? That does speak to my experience!”
    :lol:
    I felt it would be a shame if this song were to be lost and that we deserved to learn the other chapters of the song cycle. – Spero Dedes – Actual sportscaster, band name later changed to ‘Dero Spedes’ when he was promoted(?) and thus called more Pats games.

    The lowest ranked song I would tolerate is Empty Sky at 200. Then Further on Up the Road at 170. Lonesome Day at 146 I kinda like. The first song I legitimately like is Darlington County at 129. Jackson Cage at 126 is a travesty. That’s like top I dunno 40. Lucky Town at 121? Disgrace. Higher. I’m On Fire at 115 and Radio Nowhere at 113. Joke. BITUSA needs to be way lower. Backstreets lower. Racing in the Street way lower. The River lower. This Hard Land at 11? Fuck off. Streets of Philly at 14!? I like Tunnel. But ahead of Darkness? 😆 😆 American Skin above 10th? State Trooper and the Rising need to be higher.

    (Catching up from September)

    Meh, American Skin, Streets of Philadelphia, and Born in the USA all being in the top 25 is virtue signalling. IMO. At least she rated Murder, Incorporated as being better than Pink Cadillac.

    More additional information, ‘Impulsion to Nowhere’ was based in part on a possibly real, possibly made up tweet from nominal Pats fan ZeroWalls, combined with the Paul Pierce ‘ISO to Nowhere’ play.
    On to 2014’s Disk 3:

    1. Summer- Calvin Harris – Real singer, real song. An attempt to guess at and include the most popular song that summer. That was actually ‘Fancy’ by Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX.

    2. Slumpbustin’- A Daily Pounding –FCM’s suggestion as to the name of Xxx Xxxx’s (fictional) all-girl college band. And a ‘slumpbuster’ is a cherished baseball tradition.

    3. What Do You Know-Tex Labbe and the Big Wreckers -Tex sounds like the name of some bluesman, but his real story is here- Link.

    4. Let My Love Open The Door (Acoustic)-Charging Buffalo Soundtrack Album – Real Pete Townshend song, now nearly infamous for its overuse on the soundtrack on rom-com trailers. Charging Buffalo was one of our made up movies, its genesis was as such;

    Sandra Bullock and Bill Paxton star as your typical American family with two kids & a lovely house in the suburbs. Their lives suddenly are altered forever on the evening of their 15th wedding anniversary, when they decide to head to a plush Indian reservation for a night of gambling and celebration. Paxton ends up losing a substantial sum of money at poker despite his innate talent at keeping one facial expression at all times. The angry car ride home is suddenly interrupted when they see an abandoned cradle at the side of the road that contains an Indian infant girl. Bullock & Paxton take her home and begin raising her as their own. Mekhi Phifer plays the DSS officer assigned to investigate the case; Benjamin Bratt plays the tribe leader who fights for the child’s return. With Sharon Gless.
    (+9)

    5. Easter Charade – Norton Adams & The State Collegians (Live) A takeoff on the song Easter Parade, and poster NASCL’s well-known dislike of that holiday, and the band based on his old full user name of ‘North Adams State College Lives’. NASC is now MCLE, Mass College of Liberal Arts.

    6. Better Than Enza – Ernie and the Tailpipes – Mean Mark’s suggestion as to what Ernie Boch’s stupid vanity band name (Ernie & the Automatics) should actually be, the song borrowing the name of the band Better Than Ezra, and that of the upwardly mobile Enza Sambartaro, former Ben Affleck girlfriend, Kevin Youkilis’s ex-wife, and now serving as the Junior Boch’s spouse. And beard. Allegedly.

    7. Myne Eyes Doth Discerne Thye Aspect – Rickard & Gregor an Olde Englishe ‘I see you there’, one of Lou Merloni’s go to phrases, R & G names based on a post by ChicoWalker riffing on ‘Mutton Lou’

    8. Ten Minutes to Wapner – Cottage Cheese Afghan – Another poster-suggested band name, coupled with a phrase from ‘Rain Man’ Scott may have actually used as a garage band name. it’s all very confusing at this point.

    9. La Gloire de L’amour – La Confrerie des Chevaliers L’orange –The Peter Cetera song The Glory of Love, here covered by the made up Brotherhood of Orange Knights. Just in French. You savvy? Of course you do!

    10. Black and Blue –Edie Brickell & New Bohemians Real Song, real singer – After she and husband Paul Simon were arrested for disorderly conduct in 2014, the title of this song took on additional meaning.

    11. The Olympic Spirit – A John Williams composition–Krasnodor Krai State Orchestra for the Criminally Insane, real geographic location Russia, (no such State Orchestra, though) with a variation on a joke from Tom Weller’s book Cvltvre Made Stvpid. The Winter Olympics were held in and around Sochi, Russia that year.

    12. Game On – Radarheads – based on a post by NASCL inquiring if a Red Sox game was to be played due to inclement weather in the forecast, Radarheads being a fictional indie band, that hipsters had stopped following by the time that their song ‘Game On’ got mainstream airplay.
    NASCL, on 16 May 2011 – 1:07 PM, said:
    Radarheads: game tonight?

    As if. We stopped listening to the Radarheads when the album before ‘game tonight?’ was released by a mid-major label.
    (+8)

    13. Milk & Toast (You Think That’s Any Good?) –Iggy Bouzouki – references to milquetoast Dale E. Arnold, the singer’s name based on his ‘icky balookey’ phrase.

    14. Ponce? Moi? –A phrase only a ponce would use. – Tom Morello – real guitarist, from a description of Mr. Morello in a record review of Bruce Springsteen’s album High Hopes in some free Dublin paper (Perhaps the since-folded Dublin Metro Herald) I picked up on my Irish Vacation. (No not that kind, the good kind)

    15. Cvnts ad Infinitvm –Sheetmetal Badgers – Badger Sheet Metal Works are our hated rivals when it comes to Google searches for BSMW, and the Romanesque V substituting for U really classes things up. But more importantly, it was a way past the profanity filter on the Legacy Board

    16. MH370 –Koala Lumbermen – the flight number for the Malaysian Airlines passenger jet that missing on March 8, 2014, bound for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. They all can’t be great.

    17. Stormy Monday/Statesboro Blues/Whipping Post (Live)- Mick Gindaloon and his Dumb Polacks- A reprise from my man Mick and his Polacks.

    I thought Baez was already in. And The Cars have to wait another year. :-(

    Honestly, once you put Steve Miller in, just open the doors for everyone.

    The Feelies ‘Crazy Rhythms’ is a great album.

    Elvis’ Suspicious Minds is awesome.

    Little known fact: Charlie Hodge wasn’t playing a Mariachi guitar, he was actually 2’6″ tall playing a First Act kid’s guitar

    U2 announces tour. Sounds like they’ll do the whole Joshua Tree like Bruce did The River. That’s probably their best album. They hit Gillette June 25th. No word if The Edge will fall off the stage.

    I’ve gotten a half dozen presale requests already. Haven’t seen anything from the Pats yet.
