NEXT WEEK'S GUESTS!

Post categories:

Adam Buxton Adam Buxton | 12:24 UK time, Saturday, 8 May 2010

Blog Soldiers

Thanks for all those Emmy The Great questions. I asked her a lot of them and I hope a good proportion of her answers will make it to the final edit. What a completely charming person Emma Lee was! It was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable shows we've done so far.

 

Over the next couple of weeks I'm doing some filming for a TV pilot starring the comedienne Joanna Neary so this week we're going to record a couple of Big Mix Tape shows more or less back to back and once again it would be great to have your questions to put to my guests. On Monday we'll be recording a show with actor, writer, comedian and Twitter nabob Peter Serafinowicz. Peter always seems to have about 20 projects on the go. If he's not doing a TV show, he's got a part in a movie or he's filming a sketch for Funny Or Die with some famous American friend, or writing joke Tweets for his many followers or directing music videos for Hot Chip. In fact I've just decided he's a ponce and I'm going to have to give him an envious duffing. I'll do that before we record the show though.

 

The theme for that week's Mix Tape is music that is in some way funny, either intentionally or not. Not all novelty and comedy songs basically, because that would be a little much, but a few, and some other odds and sods that are for whatever reason, chucklesome.

 

On Monday night my producer James and I will be attending the Sony Awards as the Saturday show with Joe has been nominated in the comedy category. We're up against some heavy hitters so I'm not writing my speech just yet but I'll go along and stare at Chris Evans and embarrass myself trying to talk to Jarvis Cocker so that'll be fun. The next day we'll record another Big Mix Tape, and I hope my guest will be Liza Tarbuck who I last saw at Radio 2, shuffling papers awkwardly as the Modfather wished harm upon me. She hasn't said she can definitely make it but I'm keeping my fingers crossed and I thought she could help me put together a break-up tape.

 

As ever, any questions for Peter definitely, and Liza possibly would be very much appreciated by Team BMT!

 

Love Adam 77777777777CCCCCCcccCCCCCccccccc£££££3333333333hbxxXx

    Peter. Two Words; Radio Spiritworld. Another word; Where?. Has this project ended, or do you have some plans to do some more Spiritworld podcasts.

    And another question, who are your comedy influences, because I would like to know how your comedy came to ferment into the hilarious, strange and blasphemous gloop that it is today.

    Anyway, Cheers Bucco,
    Nick

    Adam,
    Excellent new show. I'm thoroughly enjoying it. The over earnest or creepy songs NOT to include in a mix tape for a fancyee had me hooting with laughter last week.
    A song that always makes me laugh for it's overblown pomp is Jackie by Scott Walker.
    I've been listening to the BBC podcasts since they came out and only just got the Weetabix element to the 'weaker bits' sting about a week ago. I always just thought it was very amusing in it's own right. I felt like a knob.
    Lee Woolner, Standon.

  • Comment number 3.

    Hello!
    I need to hear this encounter with the Modfather! Does anyone know where I can listen again?

  • Comment number 4.

    Yeah, what did you say to Weller? And what did he say? Then what did you say?

  • Comment number 5.

    Testa & James - you can probably find it online, but Buckles gave a good rundown of the encounter at the beginning of one of his Mixtape podcasts. Buckles (as always) was very funny. Weller is a humourless ponce and deserves a righteous (as opposed to envious) duffing.

  • Comment number 6.

    As for questions for Peter - can you please ask him to read a portion of the shipping forecast? I'll be in my bunk. ;-)

  • Comment number 7.

    (wanders in, looks for Marge Gunderson, yes! got in before her)
    Only joking Marge. ;0)

    The only question for Peter has to be what's your favourite area in the shipping forecast?

    Now slightly funny songs. Don't really do novelty tracks but these never fail to make me smile;

    Bare Naked Ladies - Be My Yoko Ono
    Donald Fagan - The Goodbye Look
    The Beautiful South - Don't Marry Her (the album version)
    The Rezillos - (My Baby Does) Good Sculptures
    Kirsty MacColl - Don't Come The Cowboy With Me (Sonny Jim)
    Ry Cooder - Crazy 'Bout An Automobile (Every Woman I Know.)
    The Cars - My Best Friends Girl
    Madness - Night Boat To Cairo
    The Monkees - Randy Scouse Git
    Harry Belafonte - Jump In The Line
    Lemon Jelly (again! but they are terrific) - Nice Weather For Ducks
    Starlight - The Superman Lovers (I don't it makes me smile it just does)

    And of course, the wonderful New Mistake by Jellyfish.

    Can we have a little bit of info on the Break Up Tape mix, Nice Mr Adam? Is it a tape that we are giving to someone who we have just broken up with or for while we wallowing in self pity, remorse and Pot Noodles? I have suggestions for both.


  • Comment number 8.

    I love Peter Serafinowicz, he's fab! Both myself and my young daughters particularly like 'Look Around You' in which he looked really good with the moustache and lipstick! Great writing too!
    Ask him if he cultivates the scruffy, just got out of bed look (Mmmmmmmm!) or does it come naturally! I thought he was looking particularly tired the other night on the Alternative Election Special Show!

    Mix Tape ideas...tricky....I feel bad about beating Sennas-elbow again!
    Dancing Fool - Frank Zappa
    The Sweater Song - Weezer
    Joy Division Oven Gloves, - Half Man Half Biscuit (hilarious lyrics)You could pick any song by them really.How about All I Want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague Away Kit.
    We're Not Supposed To - Supergrass
    Anything song from the mighty boosh by Julian Barratt

    Unintentionally funny...even trickier and hard to think of on the spot:
    Teddy Bear - Red Sovine (really bad, not really sure if anyone would want to hear it, but very cheesey)
    Vegetables - Beach Boys

    I'm gonna have to go away and have a good think about this....
    I'll be back

  • Comment number 9.

    The Dickies - Banana Splits
    Viva Las Vegas - The Dead Kennedys
    Anything by your good self or the Cornish from Song Wars!

    Unintentionally funny - Satan is Real - The Louvin Brothers (played on Jonathan Ross no less!)

    This is really hard, particularly if you want to avoid the obvious comedy songs like 'Always Look on the Bright Side' - Eric Idle (maybe you don't and you want to play this though?!)

    PS My daughters said to tell Peter that they absolutely love the Imhotep math problem from 'Look around you'!

  • Comment number 10.

    Back again, just noticed my gaff in the firts post I meant Any song by Julian Barratt not Anything...DOH!

  • Comment number 11.

    Argh! first post not firts!

  • Comment number 12.

    Marge, look again I did get in before you this time (09-49).... :0)

    Joy Division Oven Gloves is a great tune, can't believe I forgot it. "I've been to a post-punk, postcard fair!"

    Its good that The Dickies version of Banana Splits is enjoying a bit of a revival thanks to "Kick-Ass". Can't hear it now without picturing Hit Girl killing bad guys.

  • Comment number 13.

    Hey, You weren't there before me earlier...that's weird...but I'm glad you got in first!
    Ideas for break up tape:
    Carole King - It's too Late
    ELO - It's Over


    Questions for Liza - if she's on.
    You're a bit of a Renaissance woman, acting presenting, DJ-ing...what do you enjoy doing the most?
    Would you like to be offered a permanent spot replacing Jonathan Ross?

  • Comment number 14.

    For the funny songs playlist you should so play any of the R.Kelly songs from the album 'Trapped in the Closet'. I still remember almost peeing in my pants from laughter when I first heard those songs on your XFM podcast. The midget song sounded the funniest.

    If not, play "Computer Camp Love"by Datarock
    or "Well It's True That We Love One Another" by The White Stripes

  • Comment number 15.

    My question for peter is such...

    What do you think of my anecdote?

    My anecdote is as such...

    When I was doing A Levels, I managed to get my science teacher to play an episode of Look Around You to the class under the guise of revision. We got pretty much to the end of an episode before she noticed. It was one of those vague revision lessons, where the teacher is barely there. Very funny though, especially the gratuitous use of pencils and pointless clamps.

    The things you (Peter) do are largely very funny, but mainly the dance at the beginning of your TV show.

    Thanks!

    Funny songs...
    What about Kevin Eldon's 'Machadaynu' from Look Around You series (it's on youtube).
    That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore - Smiths
    He Poos Clouds - Final Fantasy (just for the title really, great song though)

    Lovely stuff! x

  • Comment number 16.

    Hi adam - I want you to ask peter to talk us through the hot chip video please! just for fun ;)

    petra xxXXxxooOOooooOOooxxXXxx

  • Comment number 17.

    How about Spike Milligan's Q5 Piano Theme? Is intentionally funny, makes me smile ever time I hear it!

  • Comment number 18.

    Question for Peter: Why do you think you're so good at playing 'meanies' (to use the radio-friendly term)?

    P.S. Can you say "You've reached Llama's phone, leave a message and I'll call you back." so I can set it as my answerphone message? Ta.


    Best of luck at the Sony awards, Buckules! I'll cross all my extremities and some of my innities too.

  • Comment number 19.

    Oh man, you're really in my arena now. Funny songs:

    PLEASE PLAY ANYTHING BY MIK ARTISTIK! That is if you can get hold of one of his CDs in time. Window Cleaner is the obvious one - but Jimmy Saville, Mrs Dixon, Sculpture Workshop, Clampdown, Secret Cloak, etc are all great.

    If I were to choose a HMHB song, it would be 24 Hour Garage People. Or Four Skinny Indie Kids. Or Paintball's Coming Home.

    How about a bit of John Shuttleworth (Shopkeepers in the North/Austin Ambassador Y-Reg), or the Lancashire Hotpots(Chippy Tea)?

    I'll stop now. But I could go on. I could listen to a whole day of comedy/novelty songs before it began to get too much.

  • Comment number 20.

    I have a couple of things I feel Peter S (can't be bothered spelling it!) should know.

    1. My mum has a massive crush on you, enjoy that piece of information!
    2. Are you really as cool as you seem in real life?
    3. Have you ever considered a career in Christmas cracker joke writing as you twitter one liners are genius?
    4. Perhaps more seriously, you have so many projects (writing, acting, comedy ect) is there one which you prefer more than others and have you considered writing anything serious/drama?
    5. Finally, what was it like to work with Tim Minchin on the new radio 2 comedy?

  • Comment number 21.

    just a suggestion for a funny song, it should make you chuckle. William Shatner's cover of Mr tambourine man

  • Comment number 22.

    My mind goes blank when i try to think about themed songs and what have you, but off the top of my head...

    The Felice Brothers "Love Me Tenderly"
    Tom Waits "Step Right Up"
    Loudon Wainwright III "Rufus is a Tit Man"
    The Hives "Untutored Youth"
    Nick Cave "We Call Upon The Author"
    Wild Beasts "Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants"
    The Wave Pictures "We Come Alive" "Strange Fruit For David"
    Rumble Strips "Motorcycle"
    Quite a few to choose from, from the Beastie Boys
    Brakes "Porcupine or Pineapple?"
    The Two Man Gentleman Band "William Howard Taft"
    Man Man "Top Drawer"
    Louis Prima "Pennies From Heaven"
    Lonnie Donegan "Rock Island Line"
    Herman Dune "I Wish I could See You Again"
    Jamie T "Brand New Bass Guitar"
    Jeffrey Lewis "Williamsburg Will Oldham Horror"
    McLusky "Lightsabre C**ksucking Blues"
    Bill Callahan "Eid Ma Clack Shaw" - in it's own way.
    Devendra Banhart "Little Yellow Spider"
    Sway "Magic Roundabout"

    Wouldn't say they're the funniest but there's a humour within them all, for me. Also, I love Peter but i wouldn't know what to ask him really.
    Tis a good show you've got going here anyway, Adam. Really enjoy it.
    Take care duderini

  • Comment number 23.

    Dear Mr Buck-face,

    I love your Mixtapes, they are simply wonderful in the form of simple wonderfulness. The guests so far have been brilliant, and looking forward to Big Petey S (as we in the trade call him) next week.

    Any chance of Professor Brian Cox coming on? If only because that would mean two of the best men ever invented in one studio? Thanking you muchly.

    As far as funny songs go, anything by the Bonzo Dog DooDah Band would be tip top, maybe By A Waterfall for something all subtle like, or Mr Apollo, Big Shot, I'm Bored, Trouser Press...any of them!

    Love and stuff abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwXXXyz

  • Comment number 24.

    Ahoy There! By Mr Scruff. The bit where the lovely lady voice very breathily exclaims, "it breathes air, it's a mammal!" always pleases me.

    Also Little Yellow Spider by Devendra Banhart - I see someone else has already suggested this, but perhaps two votes means extra playlist power.

    Love the show Dr Buckles. x x

  • Comment number 25.

    couple more break-up songs...there may be more...!
    Brick - Ben Folds Five (lovely but sad!)
    Unhappy Birthday - The Smiths
    Cold Morning Light OR It wouldn't have made any difference - Todd Rundgren
    Alone Again (naturally) - Gilbert O'Sullivan
    50 Ways to leave your Lover - Paul Simon

    and of course there are lots of break-up songs by Chicago but not sure how you would feel about that ;)

  • Comment number 26.

    Hello!

    I wonder how Peter feels about being a 3D Paul McCartney.

    Let It Die by Feist (not the Foo Fighters!) is a real nice break-up song.

    Oh golly, I love Peter and Liza AND Adam - I'm so excited!
    Bye!

  • Comment number 27.

    Hello Adam!

    I very much enjoyed today's show. Emma-Lee sounds like a very sweet person indeed.

    Anyway, on to funny songs. I can't think of many on top of my head, but "Steve" by Rilo Kiley (to be found on The Initial Friend EP) was written as a joke song about teenage angst and whatnot.

    As for break-up songs, I actually made a friend of mine a break-up songs mix CD a while ago. I can't remember all of them, though. But here are some:
    "Breakin' Up" Rilo Kiley
    "The Break-Up Song" Veruca Salt
    "Go your own way" Fleetwood Mac
    "Officially Dead" Veruca Salt
    "Done with love" The Whispertown 2000
    "Nothing Better" The Postal Service
    "British Columbia" The Elected
    "Your ex-lover is dead" Stars
    "Gonna get along without you now" She & Him (although it's a cover)
    "Ode to divorce" Regina Spektor
    "Married with children" Oasis
    "Blue skies" Noah and the Whale
    "Leaving you behind" Hello Saferide
    "It's not you, it's me" Coconut Records

  • Comment number 28.

    Yes Poppy, something by Scruff! I like 'Fish', or the one about the whale (on the same album). Or maybe something by the Avalanches?

    Also, HOCUS POCUS BY FOCUS!!! The funniest song ever - there's a brilliant video on youtube where the the rest of the band are falling about laughing while the Dutch hippy guy does his yodelling bit!

  • Comment number 29.

    I also second the motion for the selection of a Wild Beasts song. You could end with 'Cheerio Chaps'...

  • Comment number 30.

    Got a bit excited there.

  • Comment number 31.

    Well I think I'll crack on with some break-up tracks anyway. What is important to remember here is when you talk about break up songs there is no room for coolness. You must have songs whose lyrics mean something to you as you sit there at one in the morning surrounded by photo albums and Pot Noodle tubs with your unwashed hair and two days of stubble, wondering why she doesn't love you anymore.

    Bourgais Tagg (sp?)- I Don't Mind At All.
    Del Amitri - really can't decide between Tell Her This & Driving With The Brakes On.
    EBTG - The Heart Remains A Child
    Joan Armatrading - I Really Must Be Going (but only for when you've been having an affair.)
    Ryan Adams - Harder Now That It's Over
    Liza Minnelli & PSB - So Sorry I Said
    Level 42 - Leaving Me Now
    Prince - How Come You Don't Call Me Anymore?
    Longing For Lullabies - Kleerup featuring Titiyo (saddest video ever by the way.)
    Don Henley - Heart Of The Matter
    Gerry Rafferty - Whatevers Written In Your Heart
    Hall & Oates - She's Gone
    Sad Cafe - Everyday Hurts

    And these last four are the WMDs of break-up songs. They should be approached with extreme caution if you've had your heart broken recently.
    ABC - All Of My Heart
    Walker Brothers - No Regrets
    Prefab Sprout or Tom Ford - Bonny
    Soul Family Sensation - The Day You Went Away

    It's okay. I used to get dumped..... a lot.

  • Comment number 32.

    Question for Peter: What does the Hot Chip video mean? I mean there has to be something hidden in there, right? Please?

  • Comment number 33.

    I have a question for Peter, and might have to come back later with song suggestions. First comment on this blog, I think I need to dilute the excitement over several hours.

    I saw Peter at a Louis CK gig in Londinium a while ago. I wanted to ask if he is a big fan of Mr CK, and also does he particularly enjoy it when people recognise him in public and then gawp at him in an obvious manner while still attempting to appear cool? I thought it might be his favourite thing but I wanted to check just in case the situation arises again.

    Big love to the Bucklemeister himself.

  • Comment number 34.

    For the comedy mix the live recording of 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' where Elvis changes the lyrics to "Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair" and dissolves into a laughing fit never fails to crack me up. And the straight version would be good for the break-up mix!

  • Comment number 35.

    Question for Peter:

    Please say "Did I ask you" in the guise of his threatening Estate Agent character (had me in stitches every time)

    For funny songs you can't really go past Tom Lehrer - try "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" or "The Elements".

  • Comment number 36.

    Sennas - I love She's Gone by Hall and Oates, good choice and...
    badsaladman (greatname) the Elvis track is a perfect choice (it always cracks me up too), I wish I'd thought of it!
    Anything by the Carpenters - they are mostly sad songs about breakups, I like Superstar - I also like the sonic youth version but you can't beat Karen Carpenter's vocals.

    Forgot to wish Buckles and Cornballs the best of luck for tonight!(surely it's in the bag!)

    Anyway, I'm starting to look like John Favreau in Swingers when he keeps phoning a girl he's just met! Excrutiating...I'll get me coat!

  • Comment number 37.

    The Laughing Gnome - David Bowie.
    Wonder if he still plays that one live?

  • Comment number 38.

    Clothes Line Saga - Bob Dylan

    Douglas Adams once described this as the funniest song ever written, but he may have been joking.

  • Comment number 39.

    Thank Liza for "Win, Lose or Draw", fantastic post pub TV from a time when you watched what was on, rather than trying to clear your back log off the V+ box.
    Quick question for her: Being of the wrong persuasion does she every regret not being about to grow a beard? (Cold chins in winter can't be good).

    Break up song of choice has to be:

    Can't Uneat the apple by My Life Story

    After all you always have some amazing times in a relationship, and this helped me after the falling apart of my favorite ever relationship. (I can only get away with this comment as my wife doesn't listen to the show).

  • Comment number 40.

    Peter: I can remember reading that you were the voice of Darth Maul in that horrifically awful (sorry) Star Wars prequel. I'm sure everyone asks you to give a sample of the voice, but my question is thus: did you actually meet the actor who did all the other Darth Maul stuff and if so, were you jealous you didn't get the entire role?

    You're the one of the funniest blokes ever, cheers.


    In terms of funny songs, look no further than Banana Splits by The Dickies.

  • Comment number 41.

    Hey a DAM and Peter, how's it going? Peter, you do good impressions but I've never heard you do a Christopher Walken one. Can you?

    Also Adam, please play Bowie's 'when I live my dream' I find it hilarious.

    BYE!

  • Comment number 42.

    Ok, a few more funnies: 'The Laughing Policeman' (original by Charles Penrose), 'Right Said Fred' by Bernard Cribbins, and anything by George Formby. Hear hear for Elvis' corpsing, and how about something from Screaming Jay Hawkins?

  • Comment number 43.

    What about Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing by Shooby Taylor just for nostalgia?

    also

    Motorpsycho Nitemare - Bob Dylan
    Sister Josephine - Jake Thackray
    Anything by Monty Python or The Rutles

  • Comment number 44.

    Michael Booth's Talking bum or The butterfly song by Splodgenessabounds. Never fails to make me giggle!

  • Comment number 45.

    HOLY MOLY, you guys won!
    Hurrah!
    Nice speech man!
    The only part of the evening which hasn't made me cringe thus far!
    Congratulations!
    Wow!
    xxoooOOooxox111!!!

  • Comment number 46.

    Yay! I just came on to check if there was any news...I told you it was in the bag! Is there anything funnier than the 'Text the Nation' jingle? I don't think so...Good on ya guys, well deserved.

  • Comment number 47.

    Hi Peter

    Love your work, largely because you are an innovator. OR ARE YOU? I thought I'd put this to the test by asking you to make up some funny sentences with the following three combinations of boring words. I WILL be listening to the show, and I'd BETTER BE LAUGHING. Otherwise you will have lost my respect, the respect of the nation, but most importantly, respect for yourself, Peter.

    OK here we go:

    1. ALONE // CLOTHES // LEAVE
    2. CAR // STEERING WHEEL // TURN
    3. BUILDING // CONCRETE // DULL

    (ps. Love the "vacant eyes" laugh you used to do to Tim in Spaced, 10 million years ago.)

    Loveyoubye

    Tom from Peckham

  • Comment number 48.

    Hello...i've probably missed the boat on this but I wanted to throw some suggestions your way for break-up songs...but rather than the songs that reflect the break up, thought I'd throw some HEALERS your way - these are ones that for some reason or another got me out of a funk when I had some messy break ups...

    'Aeroplane' - Red Hot Chili Peppers
    'Song 2' - Blur
    'Fight the Power' - The Isley Brothers
    'PS You Rock My World' - Eels
    'Bottle of Blues' - Beck
    '#1 Da Woman' - Tricky

    Anywho - question for Liza Tarbuck - I remember when she was in Watching. The family joke used to be "We're watching Watching". Oh the fun times we had....anywho, are there any family in-jokes or references only her family would get, when everyone else in the world would think she was a bit cuckoo-nutjob?

  • Comment number 49.

    PS Congratulations on the Sony award - just deserts for Adam and Joe!!

  • Comment number 50.

    Music has been great, especially the mixes with snippets of dialogue. This week was particularly good, with Adam experiencing a bit of a mid life crisis as he was clearly going a bit gooey (and possible sticky) over Emmy the Great. Tragic and hilarious! My question for the next two guests is whether they are looking forward to the same kind of special treatment?

  • Comment number 51.

    Congratulations on the Sony!! 6 music is just a big awards and compliments festival these days. Therefore....but I probably can't write that on here. Sure you all know what I would like to say!

    Too-late suggestions for these themes:

    FUNNY SONGS
    Golinski Brothers - Bloody (a John Peel favourite)
    Housemartins - Sheep, People Who Grinned Themselves to Death, Five Get Over Excited...they have lots
    Smiths - I Want the One I Can't Have (this has always made me laugh)

    BREAK UP SONGS
    Aimee Mann - It's Not

    Thankfully I only assume this would be an appropriate song, I haven't had to test out whether I'm right.




  • Comment number 52.

    Great work on the sony award. Well deserved. In other news, my housemate has become mildly obsessed preposterous idea that Peter Serafinowicz looks like Idris Elba of the Wire. I know you're a fan of both man and show, and wondered if you'd ever made this connection. Or indeed whether anyone in the world had ever thought this. I am sceptical.

  • Comment number 53.

    Good news on the award Adam!! Well done!

  • Comment number 54.

    Hey Buckaroo, I have a suggestion for your funny songs list...

    "Celebrity Sanctum" by Dogs Die In Hot Cars.

    It's been on a couple of my own mix tapes in the past. Might have to make my own "funny" mix soon and include this again. There are lots of clever/amusing little lines in the song, but I particularly like the way he sings "Angela Jolie" instead of "Angelina Jolie", I still can't decide whether he did that on purpose because it had one less syllable, or he actually got her name wrong. I'd like to think the latter, that's one in the eye for Jolie, so to speak.

    All the best!

  • Comment number 55.

    Peter!

    It's always a pleasure to hear your darth maul tones in my ears, I hope you and adam have fun on the mix tape. My question is this - How is Brian Butterfield? I worry that many of his get rich quick schemes may not have lasted the recession? I do hope he's okay, although I have heard tell that he's landed a job in number 11 as a senior adviser to chancellor george osborne?? is this true?!?

    more peter serafinowicz show please!!!

    TOM

  • Comment number 56.

    Damn it, too late for Newsnight style probing questions this time. Not going to be able to ask Tarby what the note left outside the studio post Weller-gate said. I'm guessing it probably wasn't "Love you bye! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox" ;) Ach, the fallout wasn't so bad. Only one disgruntled mod turned up here, and even he signed off with a kiss.

    Too late for break up songs as well, but anyway...

    Doors - The End. I actually sang this at the farewell of a special friend. Not in an overblown, karaoke way, or sarcastically to drive the knife in; it was all tastefully low-key. As far as the Doors can be anyway.

    Echo and The Bunneymen - Ocean Rain
    Stones - Ruby Tuesday/It's all over now/Angie
    Beck - Golden Age
    Heavy Trash - The Pill (for a Betty/Elizabeth)
    Geneva - Museum mile (multitasking with chill cake usage)
    Arctic Monkeys - Cornerstone (if hoping for a rematch)

    And of course, for extra poignancy, Bill Haley and his Comets - See Ya Later Alligator
