Tag Lies

At work, I'm allowed to play my MP3 player, as long as it's "work-safe."

I'm starting to learn, though, that I can't always trust my instincts. Or my memories. Or my musical tags.

The other day, I figured I'd play through my Devo collection. That oughta be nice and harmless, right?

Silly me. I had forgotten about "I Need A Chick."

That was worse than the time I put on Jimmy Buffett, and a woman walked in with her small children just as "Why Don't We Get Drunk And Screw" started up.

But recently, I dodged the biggest bullet of all.

My boss is a bit of a country fan (how bad is he? Well, last week he asked "Jay, what in hell are we listening to?" and I had to tell him about "Bohemian Rhapsody." But I digress...), so I went to the "genre" setting and fired up "Contemporary Country."

And we were promptly serenaded with the musical stylings of one David Allan Coe.

I don't think I've ever moved that fast at work...

Jimmy Buffet was banned from the house when my wife came home and found my daughters singing along to "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw." So, we don't play it in the house. Just the MP3, cars, shop etc.

That's a rare old Devo song that was as juvenile as they got, not that they rose above it with their videos. The best of that set was "Fountain Of Filth", which wasn't filthy, by the way.

Found myself singing along with Johnny Cash (who has a better voice than mine) "Ain't no money to buy cocaine, Sugarbabe" the other day. And my door wasn't closed. OOOOPS!

First time I heard DAC, a friend put a tape in my cars cassett player (yes it was a few years ago) I laughed so hard I had to pull over. It was gross, racist and funny as hell.

Just saw DAC last month. Still irreverent as hell, and one of the most prolific songwriters in recent history.
