…no songs with sirens in them

September 23rd, 2008 · 5 Comments · in heaven...

If I’m listening to music loudly, 90% of the time I’m in the car. Perhaps I’m an anomaly, but I doubt it. And I’m a pretty cool guy, so I listen to a lot of indie music. You know, the experimental, “too cool for school” stuff. The stuff that thinks it’s clever to mix in some siren sounds. I’m talking to you, Flaming Lips.

Two words: NOT COOL. I fall for those damn sirens every time I’m driving. I’ll slow down, check the rear-view, think about pulling over… and then it will hit me. I’ve been had by an indie band. Flaming Lips isn’t the only offender. I’m sure you’ve got another song in your head right now, sirens blazing. And you’re probably getting all hot and bothered.

In heaven, no worries. Songs will be 100% guaranteed siren-free before you buy them. There’s really nothing else to it. Enjoy!

    Matt, I would like to point out that there WILL be Lil Wayne in heaven.

    There’s a version of Ambulance Driver without the sirens, but it was released on the Wedding Crashers soundtrack a few months before At War With The Mystics came out. Those sirens always piss me off.

    Similarly, every time I hear Rock the Casbah, there’s this one part that always makes me think a cell phone is ringing.

    Unless, of course, it’s Axl Rose screeching like a siren in the beginning of Welcome To The Jungle– cause that’s just plain badass.

    AND no tv commercials with alarm clocks or telephone ringing.. While we are at it how about telling us it is no emergency BEFORE running a Emergency Broadcast System Test? My dog says no more dogs barking on tv too! Some of them are barking obscene things evidently. Who knew?
