What's your theme song?

    Everyone post what your anthem is.

    Mine (despite popular belief) is not 'a boy named sue'. It's either "We're not going to take it" by twisted sister or by "Suffer" by Bad Religion

    Probably "Help, I'm a rock" by the Mothers of Invention.

    The child of Evo really liked this part of it:

    It can't happen here
    It can't happen here
    I'm telling you, my dear
    That it can't happen here
    Because I been checkin' it out, baby
    I checked it out a couple a times, hmmmmmmmm
    And I'm telling you
    It can't happen here
    Oh darling, it's important that you believe me
    (Bop bop bop bop)
    That it can't happen here

    Who could imagine that they would freak out somewhere in Kansas...
    Kansas Kansas tototototodo
    Kansas Kansas tototototodo
    Kansas Kansas
    Who could imagine that they would freak out in Minnesota...
    Mimimimimimimi Minnesota, Minnesota, Minnesota
    Who could imagine...

    James Taylor's Secret O' Life springs to mind...

    The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time
    Any fool can do it
    There ain't nothing to it
    Nobody knows how we got to
    The top of the hill
    But since we're on our way down
    We might as well enjoy the ride

    The secret of love is in opening up your heart
    It's okay to feel afraid
    But don't let that stand in your way
    'Cause anyone knows that love is the only road
    And since we're only here for a while
    Might as well show some style
    Give us a smile

    Isn't it a lovely ride
    Sliding down
    Gliding down
    Try not to try too hard
    It's just a lovely ride

    Now the thing about time is that time
    Isn't really real
    It's just your point of view
    How does it feel for you
    Einstein said he could never understand it all
    Planets spinning through space
    The smile upon your face
    Welcome to the human race

    Some kind of lovely ride
    I'll be sliding down
    I'll be gliding down
    Try not to try too hard
    It's just a lovely ride

    Do we have to be honest? "Desperado" by The Eagles/Linda Ronstadt (that's as close to honest I'm willing to admit... :uhh: )

    Sorry...it was that or "Wasted Time" and then I realized I had been at the bar in philosophy! :eek:

    Oh yea? I'm not really into hard stuff, but I like that song for some primal reason

    I'm usually listening to some mellow vocal trance or happy hardcore song, with good female vocals that blend in with the synths and compliment the base in the song. If it also has a progressive/uplifting texture and good lyrics, its even better

    That NIN CD is pretty mello. When you say trance songs, do you mean new age type music? I like Loreena McKennitt for example.

    Here... come sit on Dr. Danger's lap and tell him all about it... :devil:

    If anyone wonders why I consider this my song, here are the lyrics:

    Zombie Woof by Frank Zappa


    Three hunderd years ago
    Thought I might get some sleep
    Stretched myself out onna antique bed
    An' my spirit did a midnight creep

    You know I'll never sleep no more

    To me it seem that is just ain't wise

    Didja ever wake up in the mornin'
    With a ZOMBY WOOF behind your eyes

    I am the ZOMBY WOOF
    I'm the creature all the ladies been
    Talkin' about

    I am the ZOMBY WOOF
    They all seek for shelter when I come chargin' out
    Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF

    Tellin' you all the Zomby troof
    Here I'm is...

    Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF
    Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF

    The said aw-reety
    An' they was aw-righty
    An' I was a Zomby for you, little lady...

    I got a great big pointed fang
    Which is my Zomby Toof
    My right foot is bigger than my other one is
    Like a reg'lar Zomby Hoof
    If I raid your dormitorium
    Don't try to remain aloof...

    I might snatch you up screamin' through the window all nekkid
    An' do it to you on the roof, don't mess with the
    ZOMBY WOOF

    I am about as evil as a Boogie Man can be!

    Tellin' you all the Zomby Troof
    Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF

    Tellin' you all the Zomby Troof
    Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF
    :approve:

    NIN is more industrial/heavy metal. Trance is electronic dance music aka techno. So trance/techno would be Paul Van Dyk, Oakenfold - anyone heard starry-eyed surprise on that Coke commercial?

    New Age is not under the trance category.

    Doesn't that dance music get really tedious really quickly???
    It's just a constant beat with some laser sounds thrown in and maybe a stolen sample from somewhere with some sci-fi quote in it ;)
    "The system is down"

    Anyways I'd have to go with "Life" by Devin Townsend.
    I'm amazed at how many people who like metal or rock don't know about him 'cause I always thought he was really popular :confused:
