^  If I wake up with the TV on, I'm hearing music first thing.  If not, I'll hear music soon enough when I log onto one of my online radio stations.

Right now, I'm listening to a vocal version of Cast Your Fate to the Wind by Shelby Flint.  I prefer the James Gang version.

Wow, that was awful!!!

Sounds like a guy who just woke up with a sore throat reading the weather forecast out of the newspaper.

What passes for musical talent nowadays.....


I just looked at one of the Walking Dead websites about this song.  Seems no one likes it.  Ominous lyrics + ominous music = overkill, sometimes.

I really wanted to like it upon hearing it for a few seconds the first time, but it goes nowhere---just the same slow pace and pseudo-Tom Waits voice throughout.

Zax from the loader, crack, and trainer from the Commodore 64 computer video game, "Dominator++" from the late-1980s.
 
 
When I wasn't listening to the zax from the C=64 computer video game Wasteland (which I used to listen to in the mornings when I had the day shift tending bar at the now-defunct <a href="http://seattlehistory.org/blog/2011/08/a-beacon/#comment-1250" target="new">Six Eleven Tavern</a> -- before my coffeepot finished perking) I used to listen to this as it helped to get my ass awake.

They used "All you need is love" in a diaper commercial???

Maybe old age is good because I have no recollection about that.

^^^ It was a commercial for Luvs brand disposable plastic baby toilets (disposable diapers) from...o I dunno...five or so years ago.
 
The song went like:
 
♫All you need is Luvs.♫
♫All you need is Luvs.♫
♫All you need is Luvs Luvs,♫
♫All you need is Luvs!♫
 
And it was sung to the tune of the Beatles song, "All You Need is Love". :-/

"Yellow Submarine" would have been more appropriate!

I sincerely cannot remember but I'll take your word for it, Angry!

This morning it was that godamned Honey Nut Cheerios song. Pure torture till I could get to the car and flush my mind of this melodic vomit.
Wasn't there a thread about the grudge match?

That damn "Welcome to the new age" song, actually titled "Radioactive." You're bound to have heard it in commercials, TV shows, newscasts, trailers, something recently:

Here's my old friend and roommate Ron (from 1981-85) announcing the Jefferson Starship at the 2001 Haight Street Fair.  Ron ran the main stage for the fair since the late 70s.

She Has Funny Cars, an old Airplane song:

I've heard 2 hours of music already today, this is the first tune I picked out myself.
It's only 6:15 in the AM, This song makes me want to turn it up.
