  • Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing 14.08.12

    Words: Ro­bert Ro­bin­son, 1758; ap­peared in his A Col­lect­ion of Hymns Used by the Church of Christ in Angel Al­ley, Bi­shop­gate, 1759. Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy grace; Streams of mercy, never ceasing, Call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, Sung by flaming tongues […]

  • A Pirate’s Life For Me (Yo Ho) 24.07.12

    Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Ride. The music was written by George Bruns with lyrics by Xavier Atencio Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. We pillage we plunder, we rifle and loot. Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho. We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot. Drink up me ‘earties, yo […]

  • Hoist The Colors 24.07.12

    Hoist the Colours -Pirates of The Caribbean 3 On Stranger Tides The king and his men stole the queen from her bed and bound her in her Bones. The seas be ours and by the powers where we will we’ll roam. Yo, ho, all hands, hoist the colors high. Heave ho, thieves and beggars, never […]

  • YO HO (A PIRATE’S LIFE FOR ME) song lyrics 23.12.10

    Because we need the practice… Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. We pillage, we plunder, we rifle, and loot, Drink up, me ‘earties, yo ho. We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot, Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho. Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. We extort, we […]

  • James Mason vs the Pirate 27.07.10

    As you know, Corbin is really into playing pirates right now (which means I am too) and I’ve always loved They Might be Giants (despite their current evolutionary tendencies) so is it any wonder that this video would bring a smile to my face. I hope it gives you a little chuckle too. Flansburgh & […]

  • Control Yourself 29.04.10

    Another post stolen from Woot.com (because I am anything but original). This is a cover of MGMT’s Kids which, by the way, has two very weird videos. Not it’s kind of sad but I found this version much better than the original. I think what makes this version apeal to me (besides the family-friendly video) […]

  • Cut the Strings 20.01.10

    Found this on They Might Be Giants This isn’t my area of expertise so I won’t even get into the legitimacy of their “argument” but here’s what the YouTube publisher had to say. The musicians are wrong: they do need ten dimensions to get rid of the conformal anomaly, as string theory explains, after all. […]

  • Mess of Me 10.09.09

    On November 10, Atlantic Records will release Hello Hurricane, the seventh full-length album from the multi-Platinum, San Diego-based rock band SWITCHFOOT. Hello Hurricane is the group’s first album on Atlantic Records and its first studio album since 2006’s Oh! Gravity, which debuted at No. 18 on The Billboard 200. SWITCHFOOT has been hard at work […]

  • Hymns that burn! 03.10.08

    Chris over at My Two Cents apparently had too much time on his hands as he put together the 5 6 Worstest American Idle style “hymns” ever heard – eva! In the list was my “favorite” hymn-to-hate – I Give You Freedom (aka Free Will Song). But as performances go, there are some real gems […]

  • Someone left the cake out in the rain 01.05.07

    “MacArthur Park” is an epic song written by Jimmy Webb and first performed by Richard Harris on his album A Tramp Shining in 1968. The seminal recording topped the music charts in Europe and peaked at number two on the U.S. charts. The song is named after MacArthur Park, a park in Los Angeles, California. […]

  • Free Will Song 13.02.07

    Just found this over at Samshua. Quite possible the most hilarious and distrbing song of all time. As you listen to the song, you’ll see that saying God is sovoriegn yet gives us a free will is such an oxymoron. These people sing about God?s control and power and glory over everything and then say […]

  • Christmas Music 25.12.06

    Christmas music is a serious matter. A good Christmas song can last the ages – so can a bad one (see Star Wars Christmas). One of my favorite albums is Edge of Christmas which includes Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues plus songs by The Cocteau Twins, The Payolas and Kate Bush among others. […]

  • Pie Song from Michael 18.04.06

    This is in response to an earlier question were I asked people to guess the source of a recent blog post title. When you’re done here, head on over to that post and take the quizzes, answer the other questions and definitely leave your comments. And now, without further ado, the Pie Song from Michael. […]

  • Hokey Pokey 21.03.06

    Borrowed this from Scroobious Scrivenings The following is from the Washington Post Style Invitational contest that asked readers to submit “instructions” for something (anything), but written in the style of a famous person. The winning entry was The Hokey Pokey (as written by William Shakespeare). O proud left foot, that ventures quick within Then soon […]
