Blognonymous Holiday Gift Guide - Part 5

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse.
The children were all
Fast asleep in their beds
Cause Rockabye Baby
Played next to their heads.
Radiohead
and Nirvana too
Metallica, Pink Floyd,
Ramones and U2.
It's hard to believe
That sales are so bad
The bands I quite like
Would pimp for this fad.
Cause the absolute
Horror of lullaby rock...
It's one step below
Easy listening schlock.

Damn this is sad. Driving to work today I caught Radiohead on LA's KROQ - they were playing a live acoustic show at the Capital Record's building. They're one of my favorite bands so hearing this put me in a great mood. But now I learn they allowed their songs to be performed as lullabyes. Sheez!

Wouldn't Enter Sandman give a child nightmares?

Regarding the Old vs. New Blogger, it seems like the Beta folks ceased their war. I noticed a message saying "we are currently out of Beta blogger". Looks like we won!
Comandante... Re: Radiohead. I like 'em too, but this is what happens when a band spends way too much time gazing at their navels--they get turned into BabyMUZAK!

Enter Sandman? Sure. What about Sunday, Bloody Sunday? EEK!
First I hear "(I can't get no)Satisfaction" in an elevator as muzak...

Now babyNirvana???

It really suxxors to get old.
I'm disgusted with blogger at the moment knowing problems are never solved thru endless attempts to contact them via email. There have always been problems with beta that have never been resolved on my site anyway. GRRRRR!

Radiohead has sold out too now? I'm a bit surprised Thom Yorke would be cool with this but I guess NOTHING should shock me anymore.
They are simply awesome. Thanks Kvatch!
You know you're getting old when you hear a song by your favorite band or one of their songs done by someone else and it's playing in an elevator. Imagine what songs will be playing in boomer's nursing homes.
Sewmouse, Gracie...as I said to the Comandante, I don't have much problem imagining what lullaby Radiohead would sound like, but Nirvana? My head is about to explode.

Anon...you're very welcome.
ROTFLMAO!!! Well, it's better than singing the "Worm" song to them. Tell me you know it.
The Ramones??? Jeez. I used to sing Pet Sematary to my son when he was a baby, but it sure as hell wasn't any rockabye baby version...
I'm just lamenting that I was tagged and that I can't tag you because you've already been tagged.

I think will do some random blog surfing and tag some total strangers.

And thanks for answering my Q earlier.
I used to put my kids to sleep to the Ramones all the time. The real Ramones, not some watered down version. And now they're straight A students!
Lew, Tom... I think this indicative of the downfall of our society. What's next? Smooth jazz renditions of the great 20th century minimalists? Johnny Cash songs turned into nursery rhymes? The mind boggles.

Polishifter. Yeah, sorry. I wasn't too fond of that meme, but regarding the cryptography...you're welcome.

HCG..."worm" song? Can't say that I know it, but then I have no little tadpoles.
I just listened to all of the Nirvana clips. I'm sleepy now. . . (click)
Eyes rolling back, head nodding, zzzzzz. I'll pass on this. Thanks anywhooo.
John, Peacechick... zzzzZZZZZZzzzz...
Pop, in boomer's nursing homes we will undoubtedly hear muzak versions of the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated". "Sister Morphine" by the Rolling Stones? Maybe "At My Funeral" by the Crash Test Dummies?

Hopefully they won't be doing muzak versions of "Not Dark Yet" by Bob Dylan, from his "Time Out Of Mind" CD... that would just be way too much of a bummer:

I'd like to hear Motorhead do some lullabyes. Same with Sabbath. I think Lemmy and Ozzie would sound great singing children's music! Heh... Of course there is always Alice Cooper... "I Love The Dead"... "Dead Babies"... those would make outstanding lullabyes! 8-)>
That was very interesting.
Snave, I'm already hearing a lot of bands from the 80s and 90s as Muzak...that's bad, but can you imagine "Lawrence Welk-i-fying" that stuff. Too horrible to contemplate.
Lew, Tom... I think this indicative of the downfall of our society.

In all fairness, it's not exactly a new phenomenon. You haven't lived 'til you've heard Misirlou covered by Laurindo Almeida and the Bossa Nova All Stars. ;-)
