Van Halen "Aint Talkin Bout Love"

Cheap Trick "I Want You To Want Me"

The Go-Go's "Surfing And Spying"

Nitzer Ebb "Join In The Chant"

The Rolling Stones "Too Much Blood" (I know, I'm just as shocked as you are.)

The Rolling Stones "Miss You" (No really I have no fucking idea how they slipped in here.)

The Rolling Stones "Gimme Shelter" (That's it for those stinking hippies, I swear!)

Black Flag "Slip It In"

X "Las Angeles"

Tom Petty "American Girl" (I miss Brian... Say, are you about a size 14?)

Martin Eden "Fader"

Martin Eden "Chuck Jones"

Ozzy "Crazy Train"

Ozzy "Mr Crowley" (I sing this every day to my cat only I sing "Mr Barney.")

Janes Addiction "Mountain Song"

Porno For Pyros "Porno For Pyros"

Squeeze "Tempted"

Squeeze "Cool For Cats" (I feel like I'm loaded to the gills on cocaine and cold medicine and transported back in time to Eric and T.J. Winick's living room the night we won Drama Fest every time I hear this song. That was the first time I'd ever heard this song. It was also the only time I'd ever been over the Winnick's house. Marty was there. So was Panda. Flashbacks are creepy sometimes. Don't do drugs.)

The Dead Milkmen "Going To Graceland"

The Dead Milkmen "Instant Club Hit" (Come On! It's classic!)

The Dead Milkmen it's not really titled but that stuff at the end of "Now Everybody's Me" about left handed lesbians always puts a smile on my face!

The Dead Milkmen "Message To You Rudy" (An obscure cover but a good one)

Rush "Closer To The Heart"

Rob Base "It Takes Two"

Samantha Fox "Touch Me"

Taylor Dayne "Tell It To My Heart" (OK yeah. I'm a little gay. I can still beat you up so anytime you want to go out into the parking lot you just let me know.)

Elvis Costello "Radio Radio" (I wanna bite the hand that feeds me.)

Duran Duran "Too Much Information" (Destroyed by ABC I hate to bite the hand that feeds me Too much information)

Duran Duran "Reach Up For The Sunrise" (New but everything I would have expected in '86 if they hadn't broken up in '85.)

The Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows" (The last thing I want to hear before I die is my wife telling me she loves me. I want to hear this just before that.)

I miss Brain too; I'm always a little suprised by that.
It usually happens when I find myself singing along to a Tom Petty song that I didn't know I knew.

"Ten Inch Xena" is now officially titled "Always Go Out Shooting."

Just don't tell any gun control opponents that.

I have a great live version of Out of Control from the Slane Castle DVD. Bono starts talking during the harmonics break in the middle and he's telling a revisionist abridged history of recording their first album. It's quite moving.

For the record, neither of the Winnick kids gave me anything illegal. It was that girl who was suprisingly large to be doing cocaine that gave it to me. I don't remember her name. It was waiting for the judges to come back with our scores. I gave her a pull from my flask of the schnapster and she gave me a couple rails and her phone number. But she was a fat chick so I never called her.

I would have a long list also. I would have an entire catalog of tapes.

Damn straight we never gave you anything illegal. We spent enough time hanging around kids who did to want to mess any further with our brains -- we had Henry for that.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane, whoever you are.
