It's the craze that's sweeping the nation -- the shittiest mix tape competition.
Here's my five-song entry:
1. Bob Seger, "Old Time Rock and Roll"
2. Starship, "We Built This City"
3. Los del Rio, "Macarena"
4. Eagles, "Desperado"
5. Rupert Holmes, "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)"
I wanted to start with two songs that both claim to love rock and roll, but apparently love rock in the same way an abusive drunken husband really loves his spouse. Then we have the cleansing sorbet of the Macarena -- "all right?!?" -- followed by the pompous soft-rock assitude of the Eagles, and the smooth sultry shit-pop sounds of übergeek Rupert Holmes.
Check out the link above for some of the other brilliant posts and feel free to add your own, here or there. If you don't add your own list, you'll never get Rupert Holmes (actual photo, above right) out of your head. Or your libido. Rrrrowww!
Update: There's actually voting for this thing, so if you need something to fill the "American Idol" void -- man, is that phrase redundant -- check out the righthand sidebar here. There are some gloriously hideous selections, so look through them all before you vote for me.
