    Your theme tune

    If your life were a TV series (I mean television!), what would you have as the theme tune? Which song or piece of music evokes the experiences you've had?


    I think mine would change according to my mood, but the following song, though it's very bitter, does pretty much sum up the past few years. It also helps that it's by one of my enduring favourite bands, Depeche Mode (and lets face it, most of their music is dark)

    Blasphemous Rumours



    Girl of 16
    Whole life ahead of her
    Slashed her wrists
    Bored with life
    Didn't succeed
    Thank the lord
    For small mercies

    Fighting back the tears
    Mother reads the note again
    16 candles burn in her mind
    She takes the blame
    It's always the same
    She goes down on her knees
    And prays

    I don't want to start
    Any blasphemous rumours
    But I think that God's
    Got a sick sense of humour
    And when I die
    I expect to find Him laughing

    Girl of 18
    Fell in love with everything
    Found new life
    In Jesus Christ
    Hit by a car
    Ended up
    On a life support machine

    Summer's day
    As she passed away
    Birds were singing
    In the summer sky
    Then came the rain
    And once again
    A tear fell
    From her mother's eye

    Send in the Clowns


    Isn't it rich?
    Are we a pair?
    Me here at last on the ground,
    You in mid-air.
    Send in the clowns.

    Isn't it bliss?
    Don't you approve?
    One who keeps tearing around,
    One who can't move.
    Where are the clowns?
    Send in the clowns.

    Just when I'd stopped opening doors,
    Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours,
    Making my entrance again with my usual flair,
    Sure of my lines,
    No one is there.

    Don't you love farce?
    My fault I fear.
    I thought that you'd want what I want.
    Sorry, my dear.
    But where are the clowns?
    Quick, send in the clowns.
    Don't bother, they're here.

    Isn't it rich?
    Isn't it queer,
    Losing my timing this late
    In my career?
    And where are the clowns?
    There ought to be clowns.
    Well, maybe next year.

    Tom Waits, Mr Siegal

    I spent all my money, Mexican whorehouse baby
    Across the street from a catholic church
    Then I wiped off my revolver
    And I buttoned up my burgundy shirt

    I shot the morning in the back with my red wings on
    I told the sun he'd better go back down
    And if I can find a book of matches
    I'm goin' to burn this hotel down

    You got to tell me brave captain
    Why are the wicked so strong
    How do the angels get to sleep
    When the devil leaves his porchlight on

    Well I dropped thirty grand on the nugget slots
    I had to sell my ass on Fremont Street
    And the drummer said there's sanctuary
    Over at the Bagdad room

    And now it's one for the money
    Two for the show
    Three to get ready and go man go
    I said, 'Tell me Mr Siegel, how do I get out of here?'

    Willard's knocked out on a bottle of heat
    Drivin' dangerous curves across the dirty sheets
    He said, 'Man you ought to see her when her parents are gone
    Man you ought to hear her when the siren's on'

    I said, 'Tell me brave captain
    Why are the wicked so strong?
    How do the angels get to sleep
    When the devil leaves his porchlight on?'

    Don't you know that ain't no broken bottle
    That I picked up in my headlights
    On the other side of the nevada line
    Where they live hard die young
    And have a good lookin' corpse every time

    well, you know the pit-boss said I should keep movin'
    This is where you go when you die
    And so I shot a black beauty
    And I kissed her right between the eyes

    Well willard's knocked out on a bottle of heat
    Drivin' dangerous curves across the dirty sheets
    He said when the bitch is wound up and her parents are gone
    Man you ought to hear her with the siren on

    I said, 'Tell me brave captain
    Why are the wicked so strong?
    How do the angels get to sleep
    When the devil leaves his porchlight on?'

    I spent all my money girl in a Mexican whorehouse baby
    Across the street from a catholic church
    And then I wiped off my revolver
    And I buttoned up my burgundy shirt

    I shot the morning in the back with my red wings on
    I told the sun he'd better go back down
    And if I can find a book of matches
    I'm goin' to burn this hotel down

    And now it's one for the money
    Two for the show
    Three to get ready and go man go
    I said, 'Tell me Mr Siegel, how do I get out of here?'

    This pretty much sums up this week of my life ...

    Mental As Anything - The Nips Are Getting Bigger


    Started out, just drinkin' beer
    I didn't know how or why
    Or what I was doin' there
    Just a couple more
    Made me feel a little better
    Believe me when I tell you
    It was nothin' to do with the letter

    I ran right out of beer
    I took a look into the larder
    No bones, nothin'
    I'd better go and get somethin' harder
    Back in a flash
    I started on a dash of Jamaica rum
    Me and Pat Malone
    Drinking on our ow-ow-ow-own

    Woh-hoh-oh, the nips are gettin' bigger
    Woh-yeah, the nips are gettin' bigger
    Wo-hoh-oh, the nips are gettin' bigger
    Yeah-eah-eah, mmm they're gettin' bigger

    Sometimes I wonder
    What all these chemicals
    Are doin' to my brain
    Doesn't worry me enough
    To stop me from doin' it agai-ai-ain
    Wipin' out brain cells
    By the millions but I don't care
    It doesn't worry me
    Even though
    I ain't got a lot to spare-are-are

    Woh-hoh-oh, the nips are gettin' bigger
    Woh-yeah-eah, the nips are gettin' bigger
    Wo-hoh-oh, the nips are gettin' bigger
    Yeah-eah-eah, they're gettin' bigger

    Last week it was ...

    Hoodoo Gurus - 1000 miles

    Estimated time of arrival 9.30 a.m.
    Been up before the sun and now I'm tired before I even begin.
    (Now you're flying) I got so much work in front of me,
    (Really flying) it stretches out far as the eye can see.
    I can see.
    Spend half my life in airports doing crosswords and attempting to sleep,
    And when the bar is open then you'll often find me warming a seat.
    (Now you're flying) I never find a place where I can stay
    (Really flying) I'd rather be a thousand miles away.
    Thousand miles away.
    Working for yourself sometimes ain't all that it's cracked up to be.
    It can be as lonely at the top as at the bottom of that corporate tree
    (Now you're flying) I'm told I'm going places - who can say ?
    (Really flying) I might arrive but I'll be gone the very next day.
    I must be on my way
    A thousand miles away.
    Promised to myself someday I'd take the time and try to make sense
    Out of all those opportunities I've lost from trying to sit on the fence
    (Now you're flying) But right now I've got no time for yesterday
    (Really flying) Yesterday's a thousand miles away.
    A thousand miles away.
    What was that that you were trying to say ?
    I guess I was a thousand miles away.
    Sing it again.

    i really wish it was Male Stripper by Man to Man meets Mann Parrish. edit - not a gay go-go bar ofcourse (now thinking about Thailand connotations......)

    but anyway it's more likely to be Short Dick Man by 20 Fingers

    Storming through the party like my name was el nino
    When Im hangin out drinking in the back of an el camino
    As a kid, I was a skid and no one knew me by name.
    I trashed my own house party cause nobody came.

    I know Im not the one you thought you knew back in high school
    Never going, ever showing up when we had to.
    Is it attention that we crave dont tell us to behave,
    Im sick of always hearing act your age

    I dont want to waste my time
    Become aother casualty of society.
    Ill never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity
    And back down.

    Because you dont
    Know us at all we laugh when old people fall.
    But what would you expect with a conscience so small.
    Heavy metal and mullets its how we were raised.
    Maiden and priest were the gods that we praised

    Cause we like having fun at other peoples expense and,
    Cutting people down is just a minor offence then,
    Its none of your concern, I guess Ill never learn.
    Im sick of being told to wait my turn.

    I dont want to waste my time
    Become another casualty of society.
    Ill never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity
    And back down.
    Dont count on me, to let you know when.
    Dont count on me, Ill do it again.
    Dont count on me, its the point youre missing.
    Dont count on me, cause Im not listening.

    Well Im a no goodnick lower middle class brat,
    Back packed and I dont give a shit about nothing.
    You be standing on the corner talking all that kufuffin.
    But you dont make sense from all the gas you be huffing.
    Then if the egg dont stain youll be ringing off the hook,
    Youre on the hit list wanted in the telephone book.
    I like songs with distortion, to drink in proportion.
    The doctor said my mom should have had an abortion.

    I dont want to waste my time
    Become another casualty of society.
    Ill never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity
    And back down.
    Waste my time with them
    Casualty of society.
    Waste my time again,
    Victim of your conformity
    And back down.

    If I Had A Hammer- Trini Lopez

    If I had a hammer
    I'd hammer in the morning
    I'd hammer in the evening ... all over this land,
    I'd hammer out danger
    I'd hammer out a warning
    I'd hammer out love between all of my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.

    If I had a bell
    I'd ring it in the morning
    I'd ring it in the evening ... all over this land,
    I'd ring out danger
    I'd ring out a warning
    I'd ring out love between all of my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.

    If I had a song
    I'd sing it in the morning
    I'd sing it in the evening ... all over this world,
    I'd sing out danger
    I'd sing out a warning
    I'd sing out love between all of my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.

    If I've got a hammer
    And I've got a bell
    And I've got a song to sing ... all over this land,
    It's a hammer of justice
    It's a bell of freedom
    It's a song about love between all of my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.

    Get Ready
    I never met a girl who makes me feel the way that you do. (You're alright)
    Whenever I'm asked who makes my dreams real, I say that you do. (You're outta sight)

    So, fee-fi-fo-fum
    Look out baby, 'cause here I come.

    And I'm bringing you a love that's true.
    So get ready, so get ready.
    I'm gonna try to make you love me too.
    So get ready, so get ready 'cause here I come.

    (Get ready 'cause here I come) I'm on my way.
    (Get ready 'cause here I come)

    If you wanna play hide and seek with love, let me remind you (It's alright)
    But the lovin' you're gonna miss and the time it take to find you (It's outta sight)

    So, fiddley-dee, fiddley-dum
    Look out baby, 'cause here I come.

    And I'm bringing you a love that's true.
    So get ready, so get ready.
    I'm gonna try to make you love me too.
    So get ready, so get ready 'cause here I come.

    (Get ready 'cause here I come) I'm on my way.
    (Get ready 'cause here I come)
    (Get ready)

    [Instrumental]

    If all my friends should want you too, I'll understand it. (Be alright)
    I hope I get to you before they do, the way I planned it. (Be outta sight)

    So twiddley-dee, twiddley-dum
    Look out baby, 'cause here I come.

    And I'm bringing you a love that's true.
    So get ready, so get ready.
    I'm gonna try to make you love me too.
    So get ready, so get ready 'cause here I come.

    Just seems I'm always telling some woman something like that.

    Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

    Some things in life are bad,
    They can really make you mad,
    Other things just make you swear and curse,
    When you're chewing life's gristle,
    Don't grumble,
    Give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best.
    And...

    Always look on the bright side of life.
    [whistle]
    Always look on the light side of life.
    [whistle]

    If life seems jolly rotten,
    There's something you've forgotten,
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
    When you're feeling in the dumps,
    Don't be silly chumps.
    Just purse your lips and whistle.
    That's the thing.
    And...

    Always look on the bright side of life.
    [whistle]
    Always look on the right side of life,
    [whistle]

    For life is quite absurd
    And death's the final word.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
    Forget about your sin.
    Give the audience a grin.
    Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.
    So,...

    Always look on the bright side of death,
    [whistle]
    Just before you draw your terminal breath.
    [whistle]

    Life's a piece of shit,
    When you look at it.
    Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true.
    You'll see it's all a show.
    Keep 'em laughing as you go.
    Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
    And...

    Always look on the bright side of life.
    Always look on the right side of life.
    [whistle]

    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    [whistle]

    Repeat to fade...
    Ironic really

    Mindless drifter on the road
    Carry such an easy load
    It's how you look,
    and how you feel
    You must have
    a heart of steel.

    Why do I keep fuckin' up?

    I can see you on a hill
    Comatose but walking still
    Curves beneath
    your flowing gown
    Only I could
    bring you down.

    Why do I keep fuckin' up?

    Dogs that lick
    and dogs that bite
    Hounds that howl
    through the night
    Broken leashes
    are all over the floor
    Keys left hanging
    in a swinging door.

    Why do I keep fuckin' up?

    Keep fuckin' up!

    This one too:

    How many special people change
    How many lives are living strange
    Where were you when we were getting high?
    Slowly walking down the hall
    Faster than a cannon ball
    Where were you while we were getting high?

    Some day you will find me
    Caught beneath the landslide
    In a champagne supernova in the sky
    Some day you will find me
    Caught beneath the landslide
    In a champagne supernova
    A champagne supernova in the sky

    Wake up the dawn and ask her why
    A dreamer dreams she never dies
    Wipe that tear away now from your eye
    Slowly walking down the hall
    Faster than a cannon ball
    Where were you when we were getting high?

    Some day you will find me
    Caught beneath the landslide
    In a champagne supernova in the sky
    Some day you will find me
    Caught beneath the landslide
    In a champagne supernova
    A champagne supernova in the sky

    Cos people believe that they're
    Gonna get away for the summer
    But you and I, we live and die
    The world's still spinning round
    We don't know why
    Why, why, why, why

    How many special people change
    How many lives are living strange
    Where were you when we were getting high?
    Slowly walking down the hall
    Faster than a cannon ball
    Where were you while we were getting high?

    Some day you will find me
    Caught beneath the landslide
    In a champagne supernova in the sky
    Some day you will find me
    Caught beneath the landslide
    In a champagne supernova
    A champagne supernova in the sky

    Cos people believe that they're
    Gonna get away for the summer
    But you and I, we live and die
    The world's still spinning round
    We don't know why
    Why, why, why, why

    How many special people change
    How many lives are living strange
    Where were you when we were getting high?
    We were getting high
    We were getting high
    We were getting high
    We were getting high

    Great tune!

    Full Lyrics never actually aired

    Making your way in the world today
    Takes everything you've got;
    Taking a break from all your worries
    Sure would help a lot.
    Wouldn't you like to get away?

    All those night when you've got no lights,
    The check is in the mail;
    And your little angel
    Hung the cat up by it's tail;
    And your third fiance didn't show;

    Sometimes you want to go
    Where everybody knows your name,
    And they're always glad you came;
    You want to be where you can see,
    Our troubles are all the same;
    You want to be where everybody knows your name.

    Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee's dead;
    The morning's looking bright;
    And your shrink ran off to Europe,
    And didn't even write;
    And your husband wants to be a girl;

    Be glad there's one place in the world
    Where everybody knows your name,
    And they're always glad you came;
    You want to go where people know,
    People are all the same;
    You want to go where everybody knows your name.

    Where everybody knows your name,
    And they're always glad you came;
    Where everybody knows your name,
    And they're always glad you came..
