We are back this week with another 10 songs that you need on your mp3 player. If there are two questions I get asked the most about these lists, they would be:
1. Why so few Zombie Songs?
2. Aren’t you getting tired of waiting for the next Song of Ice and Fire book to come out?
The answers to these questions are 1. It has been a tragic oversight, and 2. Are you kidding? I’m still trying to get through the Dark Tower series, he can take as long as he likes!
In any case, we have more zombie songs and a pair about George R.R. Martin’s writing schedule on the list this week, enjoy!
10. Nobody Loves the Hulk by The Traits
This gem from little known garage band The Traits was only available via an ad in issue #127 of The Incredible Hulk. Thank Cthulhu for the internet, otherwise this song may have been lost to the ravages of time.
9. Bizarro Genius Baby by MC Frontalot
We all hope our children end up smarter than us, but straight out of the womb? MC Frontalot tells the story of a father who’s baby is insanely smart, and his unique solution to the problem.
8. Zombie Love Song by Ray Johnson
7. Bath Salt Zombies by MC Wreckshin
Here we have a pair of songs dealing with the Undead that live among us, the first being about the fictional, “eat your brain”, the second, the more real “eat your flesh and hide under an overpass naked” sort.
6. Sea Monsters by Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew
The originators of Pirate Hip-Hop, Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew tell the story of the pirate captain’s most dreaded foe, the sea monster, and how they should be dealt with.
5. Anime Intervention by Superpowerless
UK based Superpowerless has admitted to having an addiction to anime. With lyrics like “Cause a Anime High is the greatest High of them all. And an Anime High Will Be There When you Fall”, it seems that they’ve taken the first steps towards recovery.
4. Write Like the Wind (George R.R. Martin) by Paul and Storm
3. George R. R. Martin Is Not Your Bitch by John Anealio
Back in 2009, a fan wrote Neil Gaimon asking if he thought that writers had an obligation to their fans to write further books in a series instead of working on other projects. Mr. Gaiman’s response, was a succinct “George R. R. Martin is not your bitch.” There have been a number of complaints on Mr. Martin’s writing schedule, and this pair of songs address these, often quoting Mr Gaiman.
2. Type 40 by Chameleon Circuit
There is a lot of Dr. Who fan music out there, but, in my opinion, Chameleon Circuit is at the top of that particular list. Here the pioneers of “Time Lord Rock” Explain why the Doctor’s Tardis is so well beloved.
1. On & On by Kirby Krackle
Healing factor, indestructible bones, the mutant ability to look cool with mutton chops. Ah, being Wolverine must be a life worth living. Well, there is a downside, according to this tune by Kirby Krackle.
Bonus Song: Man of Steel Trailer, The Literal Version by Superpowerless
Superpowerless submitted this song in response to a request for music for the new Man of Steel Trailer. It was rejected with the following letter:
Thank you for your initial recordings re: Man Of Steel.
I’m afraid the lyrical content of your submission shows a blatant lack of consideration for the sync brief – did you read this?!It was offensive, factually inaccurate, revealing of the plot, contained a heavily negative and opinionated bias towards the film, referred to characters by incorrect names or by the names of the actors portraying them and the use of profanity was previously stated as unacceptable.The references and opinions of Christopher Nolan’s work on the Dark Knight Trilogy are irrelevant and unnecessary.The instrumental backing was upbeat and energetic whereas the sync requests something dark and suspenseful.
Please review the sync brief and revise the submission.
