Channel Changers

While driving in my car there are songs played over the radio that either make me change the channel quickly or crank the volume to the max. This Thursday, I am going to play tribute to the channel changers.

1) Karma Kameleon, Culture Club. It's not that Boy George sniffs snow or the fact that he is currently serving time working for the sanitation department of New York City. This song is one of those songs that get in your head and never leave! In fact just mentioning it here makes my head sing.

2) Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin. I love the song, don't get me wrong. But it's been played so often and over and over again, it does nothing for me anymore. I get that "been there, done that" kind of vibe.

3) Sky Pilot, The Animals. It's a looooonnnnng song, in fact in the middle of it, you think it is another song but the lyrics are the same as the last 2 songs you've heard. All the rifts, all the drags - just listening to it makes you hallucinate.

4) Relax, Frankie Goes to Hollywood (George Michael). A song about relaxing your sphincter muscles and enjoying anal sex just isn't something I can actually drive to. I might crash into something.

5) Fast Car, Tracy Chapman. She sings about a Fast Car but doesn't sound thrilled about it. As a matter of fact, just listening to this song while driving - you'll soon find you are holding up traffic and driving like a Granny.

6) Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Michael Jackson. Yet another sphincter song, but Jackson likes it rough. The lyrics make my ass cheeks clench, my back spasm and before you know it I'll have whiplash.

7) Maneater, Hall & Oates. A sure channel changer. It makes me feel they are singing about me, then I think about where I am driving to and who I may chew up when I get there.

8) What's Up Pussycat, Tom Jones. No matter how many times I've tried, I can't take my under-panties off while driving at the same time.

9) I Want It That Way, Backstreet Boys. Yeah, you guessed it another sphincter song, except this one gives me the urge to pinch a loaf.

10) Sailing, Christopher Cross. A great song, but not while driving. Makes me fall asleep at the wheel with all of those relaxing ocean sounds. Makes me wanna pee too!

11) Rappers Delight, Sugar Hill. I know the song by heart, I do like it - but while sitting at a red light I keep getting those weird stares because my head is bobbing around like a chicken.

12) Like A Virgin, Madonna. A big time Sphincter song, I just know it. Because any other opening on her body has got to feel like throwing a hot-dog down a hallway.

13) Barbie Girl, Aqua. While singing it I get this feeling like I just huffed-helium and need to stop at Mickey D's for a Happy Meal because the toy is cool.

    Would you believe that up until like the last year or two I did not know what "Relax" was really about?? And what's even funnier is as soon as I learned the message in this song; I recall how my Mom would sing it whenever it came on the radio and fell on the floor laughing. I have not taken the time to let her in on this & last time we were in town she was in the kitchen listening to the radio & wanna guess what it was playing???

    That was a trip of a list! Thanks for stopping by mine. :-)

    Interesting list! I like the Backstreet Boys and that song in particular. They made some good music. Brian Littrell is making some good Christian music on his own now, he is pretty good! My list is up!

    Great list!

  • At 11:42 PM, Blogger Lisa said…

    hahahah that's too funny! Yeah, I remember all those "Frankie say RELAX" tshirts! AH! The 80s! Good times.

    (although the MJ song is so danceable!)

    Thanks for stopping by my 13! I couldn't be a GYN either!

    Great list!! I've been thinking of starting a Monday Music meme thing...just to get some of these type of songs OUT of my brain. I don't think it would help tho. =o) Oh, and up until now, I never knew what Relax was all about. Ewww!

    We have quite a few overlapping channel changers, but I let "Stairway TO Heaven" go on AND I sing along at the top of my lungs. Can't help it. I'm a 70's gal!

    Why does it seem most of those are from the 80's or early 90's :) Happy TT!

  • At 4:23 AM, Anonymous Tricia said…

    Great list. :) Love your commentary on the songs. You're right a lot of them are good songs but they've either been played too much or just aren't good when you are driving in your car.

    Yep, those are some pretty awful songs! I'd have to agree with you on most of them, and the others...I'll take your word for it because I haven't heard them.

  • At 9:57 AM, Blogger Barbara said…

    I only recognized one of those songs - Tom Jones "What's Up, Pussycat?". I don't listen to those songs anymore -it's talk radio for me. :)

  • At 10:39 AM, Anonymous Stacy said…

  • At 11:21 AM, Blogger The Tempest said…

    Hiya! This is my first round with the 13.

    I have agree with you on most of those songs. I'm a radical channel surfer.

    Oh but the commericals? THOSE get me faster than anything else!

  • At 11:42 AM, Blogger Karen said…

    We listen to the radio in our office and Karma Kameleon was the reason we had to change channels! :)
