Well, that's three of us who favor Ween.

They might be just your thing, or you may be up shits creek with a turd for a paddle.

+1 for Ween, good to to know I'm in good company. More than one non-Ween listening belayer has been slightly startled by my apparent request for them to piss up a rope as I contemplate a crux move.

Other favored tunes include whistling Alpha Beta Gaga (Air) or the sung bass part of "Don't eat the yellow snow" (Zappa).

When things get more hairy I'm accused of making Yoda-like noises.

This is that old Who song "Behind Blue Eyes". They had to change the lyrics cause of taste and decency...or decadency. Can't remember which.


No one knows what it's like

To be Plaidman

To be the sad man

Behind these eyes



No one knows what it's like

To be hated

To be fated

To telling only lies



But my dreams

They aren't as empty

As my conscience seems to be



I have hours, only lonely

My love is vengeance

That's never free



No one knows what it's like

To feel these feelings

Like I do

And I blame you



No one bites back as hard

On their anger

None of my pain and woe

Can show through



But my dreams

They aren't as empty

As my conscience seems to be



I have hours, only lonely

My love is vengeance

That's never free



When my fist clenches, crack it open

Before I use it and lose my cool

When I smile, tell me some bad news

Before I laugh and act like a fool



If I swallow anything evil

Put your finger down my throat

If I shiver, please give me a blanket

Keep me warm, let me wear your coat



No one knows what it's like

To be the Plaidman

To be the sad man

Behind these eyes

Nice, Plaidman.

I go with something from Air Supply's Greatest Hits

Or the doors:
"Tell all the people that you see,
you'll be free,
follow me down"

Or "Davey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier"

Or
"Goodnight sweet love, well, it's time to go.
Goodnight sweet love, well, it's time to go.
I hate to leave you but I really must say,
Goodnight sweet love, goodnight"


Or "Ba-ba-ba, ba-bar-baraaaan..."

Or
"In the days of my youth,
I was told what it means to be a man.
Now I've reached that age,
I try to do those things the best I can.
Good times, Bad times, you know I've had my share..."

Or
"Did you ever know that you're my hero
You're everything I would like to be
If I could fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings"

Stuff like that
