A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
Wanted to note that I have been joined in my crusade to banish "Freebird" by Colin Meloy of the Decemberists. From the post below:
"Turns out, Meloy holds board membership on MACOF, which stands for 'Musicians Against the Calling Out of Freebird.' He claimed executive status within the organization in 2006, after fellow uneducated fans would request the classic-rock anthem."
Don't know much about the Decemberists. And I am not a musician, so I cannot join MACOF. However I will support their cause!
Physical by Olivia Newton-John, We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions by Queen. Love Queen, but I think these have been played at every sporting event on the planet since 1977.
To say the following songs have been played to death is an understatement of massive proportions:
1. Imagine/John Lennon
2. Bohemian Rhapsody/Queen
3. Yesterday/The Beatles
4. Hotel California/The Eagles
5. Sweet Home Alabama/Lynyrd Skynyrd
6. Layla/Derek & the Dominos
7. Layla (Unplugged)/Eric Clapton
8. Maggie May/Rod Stewart
9. Woman/John Lennon
10. I'm Still Standing/Elton John
Not so honorary mention: Anything by Pink Floyd
1-135. Most songs by Jimmy Buffett but especially his crap anthems Margaritaville and Cheeseburger in Paradise
136. Brown Eyed Girl
137. Sweet Home Alabama
138. Walk This Way
139. Hotel California
140. Stairway to Heaven
141. Shiny Happy People
142. Frank Sinatra's Christmas songs
A local radio station recently added Warren Zevon's classic, "Lawyers, Guns and Money" to their rotation.
Sadly, they promptly commenced to play it every friggin' hour! Add this one to the list.... :o(
Don't Stop Believ'in -Journey
Even Flo - Pearl Jam
Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
Imagine - John Lennon
