Don’t go chasin’ The Other Guys

Here at Songspeak, we strive to keep our massive fanbase updated with the most current pop culture news and happenings. So it’s no coincidence that this post is about a movie that came out over a month ago referencing a group that existed mainly in the 90’s. Last night, I found myself with the opportunity…

Barenaked Ladies Are Me…and my friend

Last Friday, I met a friend at Mohegan Sun to see Barenaked Ladies, for which I had complimentary tickets. The show, in a nutshell, was great. I left work promptly at 5pm and made it to Mohegan Sun in an hour and 40 minutes. Not too shabby. My friend arrived shortly thereafter and we went…

A boombox is not a toy

Imagine my joy when SNL featured a Digital Short this past weekend of my favorite track off the Lonely Island CD, Boombox. Julian Casablancas from the Strokes appears, as he provided vocals for the song. The video pretty much tells the story I envisioned in my head, and any song and/or video that references the…

Paula Cole is the pits

Matt and I had a brief IM conversation this morning resulting from I Don’t Want to Wait by Paula Cole playing on the radio: jamie: wearing shrap-NEL in his SKIN jamie: that was just on the radio matt: how nice for you matt: I don’t hate any songs more than that one jamie: really? ANY…

Wouldn’t Black Sabbath make more sense?

Thanks to Bill for sending me this link earlier today. It seems that the soundtrack for Iron Man 2 will consist of solely AC/DC songs, and the soundtrack, available April 19, 2010, will be called AC/DC: Iron Man 2. One would think that AC/DC recorded a new track or two for the soundtrack, like Big…

Sloppy Joe, Slop Sloppy Joe

On the nights my wife works, it’s up to me to make dinner for myself and Quinn. One of my go-to meals, mainly because it’s easy to prepare and doesn’t take much time, is Hamburger Helper. There are enough varieties that having it once a week doesn’t really get too old, and it’s just easier…

I can smell your pee

Another song that Matt and I heard numerous times on the radio when we shared an office was Breathe by Faith Hill. I still hear it more often than anyone ever should, actually, thanks to mix 93.1. It truly is one of the queerest songs in existence, and the lyrics are awful, which is why…

They called me Butt Queen

Two misheard lyrics in one song! Last Sunday, we took Quinn to Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon, MA. On the way home, we were listening to the same mix CD that contains the iCarly and Drake & Josh theme songs that I made for our Lancaster, PA trip last October. Quinn is actually starting to enjoy…

Won’t you please take off your sweater?

When I got home from work yesterday, my wife was doing the usual Wednesday housework while my mother had our daughter out to dinner. She usually puts the TV on one of those music on-demand channels while she does the cleaning or whatever, and yesterday she had it on the 90’s channel. For the brief…

The Wrong Way

Ah, the summer of 1997. I had just graduated from WPI, and was enjoying my first academic free summer. I don’t recall exactly how it happened, but somehow, an impromptu road trip to Cleveland to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was planned. The participants in this trip were myself, Matt, our…

Will she smell alone?

This falls under the category of ridiculous lyrics. Back before Scott Weiland had yet to fall off the wagon for the first time, he fronted a little band called Stone Temple Pilots. And despite their first ever single being about brutal rape (Sex Type Thing), people seemed to like them. This was back when grunge…

Suck my crack

This goes back to when I was in high school. 107.3 WAAF was our radio station of choice in those days, and this occurred late one night when I was either driving home after a night out or a late shift at Stop and Shop. Lithium by Nirvana was the latest single all the rock…

She’s so hi, how ya doin’?

What ever happened to Tal Bachman, son of Randy Bachman of the classic rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive? I’m about 99% positive I’m the only person asking that question. This post isn’t even about where he is. He could be dead in a ditch for all I know. Or care. What it IS about is his…
