What should be the next theme?

Where are you all?

Did you all running scared of famousthecat's list?

Is there no brave soul who will throw down the gauntlet?

What? Are you all too busy reading about Sarah Palin or the other natural disasters to hit the U.S.?

Come on people! We can't do this alone!

COMPETITION #5: The "Songs that Should be Presidential Campaign Theme Songs" Mixtape

In your response, list the five songs and artists either alone or as hyperlinks. Use youtube or mixwit or any other place you can find an audio clip of it online until muxtape gets sorted out (if ever).

For this one, you can pick songs that you think correspond to either of our current candidates or just good theme songs, in general. You can do some explaining if you want of course. Most importantly, enjoy!

This one will end in two weeks: Saturday Sept 20th at 5pm.

Also, if anyone puts "Raising McCain" by John Rich we will publicly humiliate you for owning that song.

COMPETITION #4: Results and Update

We'll its been a while. We took a breather this summer as did Muxtape. They are currently having a little issue with the ever-so-greedy RIAA.

The last entries were great if you didn't get to partake before the site was shutdown. I'll give a nod to Chris for getting songs that were all actually about the in-progress commission of a crime. Well done!

From now on I think we'll take a new strategy. Just list the songs so they will at least remain on the site for others to see. Then add youtube, mixwit, or whatever other links you may wish. Of course you can always hyperlink it into one classy affair.

COMPETITION #4: The "Songs About The Commission Of A Crime" Mixtape

Since there was a tie, we randomly picked this one. Again, you don't have to make the actual muxtape (although it would be cooler if you did man). However, try to be fancy and hyperlink the lyrics if you can!

This mixtape should be 5 songs that do not have to be entirely about the commission of a crime, but clearly reference the commission of a crime. It is due SUNDAY JUNE 29th at 10pm.

ADDED TIP: To Hyperlink, do the following:
1) using this formula:
2) paste the URL where it says URL but leave the " 's
3) add the song title where it says TITLE
4) rule at the interweb

Enjoy and stay out of jail.


Very nice lists overall and hat's off to the players who created their own sub-themes! We give the nod to nora flood who's Jesus-themed submissions were all very ridiculous. Congrats!

Here are some additional picks:
1) The Four Lads - Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea
2) George Harrison - Thanks for the Pepperoni
3) Just Us - I Can't Grow Peaches On A Cherry Tree
4) Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus - Dong Dong Diki Diki Dong
5) Herman's Hermits - I'm Henry VIII I Am

I liked james johnson's Sufjan pick, I figured someone might pick one of his, here's my favorite:
6) Sufjan Stevens - A Conjunction of Drones Simulating The Way In Which Sufjan Stevens Has An Existential Crisis In The Great Godfrey Maze

And in the line of long, ridiculous titles:
7) NOFX - We Threw Gasoline On The Fire And Now We Have Stumps For Arms and No Eyebrows

And I loved Jennifer's parenthetical picks. A few more:
8) Simon & Garfunkel - A Simple Desultory Philippic ((or How I Was Robert McNamara'd Into Submission)
9) James Brown - Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine (Part 1)
10) Quad City DJ's - C'mon N' Ride It (The Train)

Quite ridiculous.

COMPETITION #3: The "Most Ridiculous Song Titles Of All Time" Mixtape

This is pretty self-explanatory. Also, this gives a chance to some of you who are having some difficulty with the sites to simply post your song titles. The song itself might be ridiculous or normal, but the title must be ridiculous.

For this one - feel free to link to a muxtape or mixwit - but actually type out the artist and song title in your comment.

This list will be due Sunday June 8th at 10pm.



Well we decided that this was so subjective that it will not merit actual scoring. We liked all of the lists but give a nod to Erin especially for her inclusion of Wicked Games by Chris Issak which one judge says deserves to be taken out back multiple times. It was quite humorous to see the variety in picks.

A couple ideas from the judges are available here and here.
