What Not to Play When

You know…after having played Tubular Bells whilst pulling up to the Church (not my church by-the-way…I don’t abide all this religious formality…don’t worry; I’ve got an itemized list of suffering I’ve occurred that I’ll hand over to God when the times comes…) I realized that timing is everything and that there are just some songs that shouldn’t be played at certain times. Let’s examine…

Song not to be playing: Touch Me in the Morning

Song not to be playing: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year


Song not to be playing: I Only Have Eyes for You


Song not to be playing: The Fool on the Hill


Song not to be playing: We Didn’t Start the Fire


Song not to be playing: Feels like the First Time


Song not to be playing: I Can’t Drive 55

But what if you DID start the fire?

CatLadyLarew said...

Hey, I was actually first! Where's the rest of the gang?

You could play "Fools In The Captial" and you might get a standing ovation. Or you could play the movie "House of Fools" and get another ovation. That looks like a team in the picture but I do not know which one and I was not referring to the team, I was referring to the idiots in the Cap. I think there are almost 534 of them. Maybe the movie "Dumb and Dumber" applies here.

Oh and it might be the "Most Wonderful Time of The Year" for the widow or widower if the person in the casket was an a-hole. Or maybe the song "Money, Money" might be a good one.

God bless.

I so admire the twists and turns of your mind – it takes life beyond the obvious and ordinary and into the realm of laughter – and nonsense!

I'm still smiling at this post...

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I think you should start going to church. It's time.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

....that is if they'll let you in.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

You may have to use a disguise.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

....although God will know it's you and strike you down with lightening.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

But it's a risk you have to take.

A friend of mine recently got pulled over for speeding and she actually was listening to that song. Why she was listening to that song, I'll never know!

JennyMac said...

I really cant drive 55. 75? Done.

unfinishedperson.com said...

I don't think they'll let you into The Church at this point, especially with all your wisecracks about him. I mean, next you'll be picking on the Pope. I mean, what has he done or not done lately to be picked on? ;)

unfinishedperson.com said...

Also unfinishedperson and unfinishedrambler are the same person, just two sides of the same coin. I'd separate myself out, but am not allowed to do so under your commenting system. So I'm being shortchanged in the number of comments. WAAAAAA!

Catladylarew – Yes, you were first…which means YOU start the fire today…

Mrsupole – Yes, Dumb and Dumber would work as would Dumber and Dumberer…

Beth – Excellent, thanks. Hey…I thought you were dancing with bears at that cabin of yours?

Perpetual chocoholic – I never get anywhere on time

Perpetual chocoholic – I can’t look much more evil that the current pope…

Perpetual chocoholic – I have a pirates costume…did pirates go to church?

Perpetual chocoholic – Personally I’m very surprised I haven’t been struck by lightening yet. With all of my other incidents…I’m betting the odds are pretty good…

Perpetual chocoholic – Well…I’m pretty good at Risk. I like to start from Australia…

Incredible woody – Too funny…well…not the ticket, of course…

Jennymac – Having driven in Germany, 135mph is my comfort zone. It’s hard to get tired or bored at 135mph…

Unfinishedperson.com – At the rate the Catholic Church is going broke…they’re going to welcome even me with open arms very soon…

Unfinishedperson.com – Two sides, eh? Which is your A side and which is your B side? (warning…outdated record analogy alert…)

AngelMay said...

"Fool on the Hill" doesn't really work for the Prez. "The Hill" refers to Congress.

Other than that, I'm beginning to think you are either a genius, VE, or a true nutcase. Either way - I likes ya! ;o)

Elizabeth said...

You could play "Don't Stand So Close to Me" for that first picture though.

VE said...

angelmay - True. I'm actaully a hybrid...I'm a genius nut...

elizabeth - Great, now I'll be trying to come up with what SHOULD be playing...

Quirkyloon said...

The doctor pic? Really made me snort.

Got a tissue?

You really need to have some virtual tissues available: it's the responsible thing to do.

Roy Scribner said...

If you try to drive 55 in NorCal, you will be the fool on the hill and someone is likely to have more than just eyes for you!

Subby said...

LMAO! "Fool on the Hill"

Obscure "I Can't Drive 55" reference...Susan Anton and Catherine Bach in that Lamborgini in "Cannonball Run" ( or was that with Adrienne Barbeau? ) They pull over to spray paint a "1" in front of the "55" on a speed limit sign ( making sure a a copper is nearby, of course ); then give him the bird and go tearin' off down th' freeway...

VE said...

quirkyloon - Tissues destroy trees...I've got this sucking device that flows into the Pacific to solve the problem...

roy - Ha! Good one. Couldn't have said it better...so true...

subby - I remember that one! I'm a connessuer (however you spell that) of 70s car chase movies. My favorite scene: Raul Julia ripping the rear view mirror off the Ferarri and saying "What is behind me is not important"

sharonheg said...

BWAHAHAHA, you always make me smile!

I'm not affiliated with any church but our community chorus has rehearsals in a local church on Tuesdays. It rains almost every flippin' Tuesday - I think 'someone' is trying to make a point about the Jew-turned-atheist going into a Lutheran church every week...

Songs that would be bad to play while at an airport terminal:

1. Defying Gravity
--(From the "Wicked" soundtrack)

2. Crash
--(By Dave Matthews Band)

3. Bomb
--(By Bush)

4. Explode
--(By Nelly Furtado)

5. T.N.T.
--(By AC/DC)

6. Flying Blind
--(By Ilse DeLange)

Carla said...

I've missed this humour. Good laughs.

ReformingGeek said...

Ha! So true.

Those were fun!

aladdinsane12 said...

I totally WOULD have "I Can't Drive 55" playing if I got arrested, too. Or "Fuck tha Police."

lime said...

bwahahahaha, a few of those would be tempting for me to play anyway.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

The current Pope is indeed quite enough to make my skin crawl!

Jaime said...

scary thinking of possibly being the doctor's first surgery... you're always coming up with new ways to creep me out.

VE said...

Sharonheg – It’s that little cloud that follows you around everywhere, isn’t it? I have one of those too…it’s called Oregon in spring…

Janna – Excellent selections. I should have consulted you in the first place…

Carla – It has been awhile since you’ve been around…good to see you’re doing fine…

Reforminggeek – I never know where my mind will end up sometimes…

Aladdinsane12 - I get a sense that you’re gonna go down fighting! Here, here!

Lime – I suspected as much…I’ve read your meme’s…

Perpetual chocoholic – I agree…

Jaime – Nobody wants to go first when it comes to surgery…maybe there should be a club for all first timer victims or something…oh, and I'm glad I can continually find ways to creep you out...it's a challenge of mine, you know...

The Silver Fox said...

"Gumball Rally" beats the crap out of the "Cannonball Run" flicks, which weren't bad either.

VE said...

silver fox - Here, here! Raul Julia is a kick in that...

Cheryl said...

Is it wrong to think some of this is wrong?

VE said...

cheryl - Two wrongs don't make a right...but three lefts do!
