What's Playing, Volume 3
by Michele Christopher
It's that time again! Saturday's are always kinda slow. It's getting late and basically we were bored. Michele is eating chicken, wishing she could have waited for one more song to admit to being emo and I'm just eating a crappy turkey sandwich while listening to punk rock watching how hot this town is gonna be tomorrow. So see, there's not a lot going on. Since we did the sex thing earlier and it being basically just a post with no reader input, we kinda thought it would be fun to do this again. Turn on your ipod, CD player, whatever you have and honestly tell us what you were last listening to or what's next on shuffle.
We did it. Why can't you.
These were our two.
Iggy Pop - Repo Man
I always get lucky. Maybe it's cause I only listen to cool tunes cause I'm cool. Or maybe it's cause I rock hard. Or maybe it's cause I only have a CD player and most my CDs have been stolen over the years. Well, that's not really true. I still have a ton, but I don't organize them for shit. Yeah, I know, big surprise. So what was I listening to last night? Crap. I hate this feature of the site. Hm. Hey! That's Iggy Pop! Yay! Thank god I don't have to review Neil Diamond! Although that would be pretty cool. But Iggy is pretty cool too. A really confusing song that has only one or two relevant lines to the movie. I don't know if this song was out before the movie or they hired him to do the title track. If you didn't know, Repo Man was a movie from the 80's starring *gasp* Emilio Estevez as Otto and Harry Dean Stanton as Bud. Both Repo men looking for this one car. With something in the back that killed people. I think it was an aliens. But the soundtrack is basically a blueprint of LA. Early punk rock and Mexican music. The music. Not the alien.
This is becoming more of album review. I'm getting off track.
The song really only holds a few clues about what it's about. A poor kid on drugs who is nothing? He just gives up? Becomes what he hates? Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols played guitar. I think. But, the only lyrics you have to remember are "I was a teenage dinosaur, stoned and obsolete I didn't get fucked and i didn't get kissed. I got so fucking pissed. Using my hand for an ashtray. Now i'll tell you who i am i'm the repo-man". That's the only words in this song that could possibly tell you it was in this movie.
And that's at the end of the song. The rest of it is about toadstoals and wizards. So don't ask me the deeper meaning of it. Cool song though. -T

Ok, not so bad. Still haven't caught me listening to navel gazing emo yet.
So we did it.
Why don't you tell us what's playing in your world right now?
