Little Arrows - Leapy Lee
Magic - Pilot
Move Your Feet - Junior Senior
One Night in Bangkok - Murray Head
Pop Musik - M
Rock Me Amadeus - Falco

okay, I used the rule of 'never parodied by Weird Al', to avoid earworm-switching, but as this last one started playing, I thought of The Simpsons' Planet of the Apes musical and "Rock Me Dr. Zaius"...

Squeeze Box - The Who
The Unicorn - The Irish Rovers

and a supposedly Irish folk song written by Shel Silverstein? GOTTA LOVE IT (that's an order)

Things That Make You Go Hmmmm - C&C Music Factory
Tubthumping - Chumbawamba
Undercover Angel - Alan O'Day
We Gotta Get You a Woman - Runt
Winchester Cathedral - New Vaudeville Band
Witch Doctor - David Seville
You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet - Bachman Turner Overdrive

end of cheez set; you may now resume your normal cholesterol levels.., a collection of songs from the days before pre-programming when DJs needed a 5+ minute break...

Radar Love - Golden Earring
Hey Jude - Beatles
Deacon Blues - Steely Dan
Foreplay/Long Time - Boston

Hmm, I sense Whipping Post is upcoming.
posted by Ardiril 29 November | 21:21
dammit... I only have the short/non-concert version of "Whipping Post" but the seems-even-longer-than-it-is version of the song coming up next...

Life's Been Good - Joe Walsh*
Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding - Elton John
The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys - Traffic
Do You Feel Like We Do - Peter Frampton

...could it get any longer? will no one save me from this self-inflicted HELL and tell me to get off the radio? no, I guess not...

* was surprised Walsh was longer than Meatloaf's "Paradise" - forgot about the dialogue garbahge tacked onto the end... will fix that if I ever do this again... WHICH I NEVER WILL

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly
Emerson Lake & Palmer - Karn Evil 9 (all 3 impressions in one track to avoid violating Radio Rules)

"Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends..." I never thought it might refer to me on the Radio. Well, I QUIT. NOBODY CARES IF I LIVE OR DIE OR DJ... YOU WON'T HAVE (whatever I'm calling myself this week) TO KICK AROUND ANYMORE.

Me too! But it must have been 2 or 3 am for me, if I'm counting right. Another time!
