radio opiumtea 02/28/08: the crazed and the deceased.


5. Mär. 2008, 4:08

Second verse, same as the first. This week's themes were songs about being crazy (how auspicious! because my life has just blown up.) and/or songs about various types of the undead or the generally non-living.

songs that were stuck in our respective heads at the beginning of the program:

me: Billy Idol // Dancing With Myself
Rosa: Blondie // Rip Her to Shreds

songs about having the crazy:

Sonic Youth // Schizophrenia
Iggy Pop // Real Wild Child (Wild One)
Codec & Flexor // Crazy Girls
T. Rex // Mad Donna
(and here we had a lengthy discussion on the misfortunes of Roland Bolan and Zowie Bowie and their dads.)
David Bowie // All the Madmen
Gary Jules // Mad World
(gushing over Donnie Darko)
Miwa Gemini // Crazy Over You
the Ramones // Teenage Lobotomy
Cypress Hill // Insane in the Brain
Xiu Xiu // In Lust You Can Hear the Axe Fall
Heart // Crazy on You
Fine Young Cannibals // She Drives Me Crazy

enough of that! we're all mad here! let's talk about dead shit:

Joy Division // Dead Souls
Voltaire // Dead Girls
Nouvelle Vague // Bela Lugosi's Dead
Warren Zevon // Werewolves of London
TV on the Radio // Wolf Like Me
David Sylvian & Robert Fripp // God's Monkey
Adam & the Ants // Vampires
Working for a Nuclear Free City // Dead Fingers Talking
Antsy Pants // Vampires
Miser // Zombie
(this turned out to be a horrible cover of that Cranberries song and I had to end it early or else start crying.)
Zombina & the Skeletones // Punk Rock Vampires: Destroy!
Zombina & the Skeletones // Nobody Likes You When You're Dead
Sons & Daughters // Rebel With A Ghost
Einstürzende Neubauten // Dead Friends (Around the Corner)
(discussion: Blixa Bargeld is The Shit, the Wim Wenders film "Wings of Desire" is also The Shit, in which Blixa appeared for about ten seconds. naturally this segues into the following.)
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds // Deanna
(continuing discussion: Nick Cave is The Shit. everyone must know!)
Steel Train // Kill Monsters In The Rain

I've been awake for over twenty-four hours, auuuggnnn...:

Suede // Animal Nitrate
