Fred did! Thanks Fred for the folder of goodness.... It happens Pierre..... You just have to give me a tour song instead now.... hehe
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:08am Andy in Berlin:

OMG! I only just now thought of a great Italy song! I'm sure it's too late but what about Pepino The Italian Mouse by Lou Monte?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V57hP7Ipjw4
Unless you already thought of it...?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:08am pierre:

a tour song ?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:09am Dave B:

@ Pierre - Kraftwerk's "Tour de France" will not redeem you...

:-)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:10am Meghan:

next week's theme.... (i'm teasing btw)

oh andy... I didn't.... grrrrr
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:10am Simon:

What about Tour Eiffel?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:11am fred von helsing:

I can't believe I failed to send you that Giant Robot song for the Scando show. ARGH!!!!! Hey what if you had a show of Europe songs *plus* delicious, still-edible leftovers?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:11am pierre:

@ Dave B : i thought about this one obviously, but this was way to obvious… in the meantime i love it.
to be honest i can't wait to hear what songs you chose.
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:13am Meghan:

I didn't do any landmarks..... so no Eifel songs....
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:13am Dave B:

I sent Meghan my usual care package for her to choose from. However, seeing her at Detention on Monday put in my one request...
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:13am fred von helsing:

The other day Trouble played some Clothilde, she's the greatest of all yé-yé. I asked around at a flea market (that giant one in the north of Paris) and the guy said that Clothilde is a very rare item, top shelf
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:14am Chuck:

Pass the pecorino cheese please!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:15am Dave B:

with these last 3 songs, all I picture is a red checked table cloth and a cianti bottle candle holder
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:15am pierre:

good to know fred !
(but wait… you're french ?!)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:15am fred von helsing:

Anyone else here into Honey Bane? I just discovered her and it's great stuff. She's updated "Violence Grows" for the here and now.
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:17am fred von helsing:

@pierre nope I'm a Yank in Hellsinki but I have a major crush on yé-yé! Clothilde, Pussycat, Liz Brady, Annie Philippe...
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:18am pierre:

i hear you, i have a crush on yé-yé artists to !
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:19am Dave B:

Hone Bane of/from the Crass collective?

Wow, that's a blast from the past.
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:20am Chuck:

Ha! The Stranglers make the cut again!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:22am Meghan:

Chuck, I had 4 of their songs to choose from!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:22am Dave B:

@Fred VH - a good collection from Ace Records. The lead track by Jacqueline Taieb crushes (in my opinion)

http://www.acerecords.co.uk/content.php?page_id=59&release=8591
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:23am Simon:

The Stranglers and the Fall seem to have most of the world covered between them...
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:23am fred von helsing:

"Violence Grows", updated for London 2011: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l64ogwrKJfY or the newest post at https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=389879717243 (yeah I'm the group admin, everybody is welcome to join and post stuff !!)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:24am fred von helsing:

Sleater-Kinney! I hope everyone's heard the new Wild Flag
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:24am Meghan:

I did get rid of the Fall song for later.... but yes, they fall (no pun intended) into the many world songs group too!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:26am fred von helsing:

@DaveB will check after the show! I hesitate to buy the various yé-yé collections, they tend to have a lot of lamous filler tracks :-(
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:29am pierre:

hé Friend Von Helsing ! ;)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:30am Andy in Berlin:

Hope that Rome song doesn't knock The Stranglers out of Spain!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:30am Meghan:

ha! nice volcano sound at the end of that song..... all they needed were people screaming
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:30am fred von helsing:

bonne journée, mon nouvel ami :)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:31am Meghan:

awww, it did Andy. : (
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:31am Chuck:

Are the sets going to be particularly long due to so few countries, Meghan?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:32am Andy in Berlin:

Cripes! I love that song!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:33am Meghan:

yuppers..... I wanted to give equal time to each country.... and a set just for Europe!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:34am fred von helsing:

VERUCA SALT YEEAARRRGGHHHHHH
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:35am Dave B:

@Fred - I find the Ace collections are usually pretty solid.

and AW CRAP - I forgot general Europe songs....
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:35am hamburger:

any Velvet Underground for the European set per chance?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:35am Chuck:

Getting from that Sheena Scott track to the Saints in the same set! Skillfully done, Meghan!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:35am fred von helsing:

@DaveB it's not too late! (maybe)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:36am Meghan:

hehe... thanks Chuck! Hamburger.... to answer your question... yes and no....
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:39am Dave B:

If I know Meghan - she's good to go....

If she plays "European Super State" - I'll be happy.
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:40am Kevin:

A "torr" theme?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:41am hamburger:

hmmmmm,,,, intriguing.... or not....
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:42am fred von helsing:

Sophia Loren wasn't built in a day either :-P
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:43am Dave B:

no love for Andora, huh?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:44am Chuck:

Ah, you could play "The Road" by The Kinks for the tour theme...
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:44am Dave B:

hee hee...
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:44am fred von helsing:

True, Andorra's head of state must be approved by the President of France and some archbishop in Spain. San Marino tho - where is the love?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:45am hamburger:

Fudge Andora. Fudge All 'Em Andorans! There, I said it... (some of my best friends are Androans - so it's okay)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:46am pierre:

and the president of France isn't a good decision maker.
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:46am pierre:

aawww accordeon !
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:46am Kevin:

oh fuck yeah screamin' jay
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:47am fred von helsing:

I just read a new history of Paris by the author of "the discovery of france", both books are excellent
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:47am Kevin:

oh yeah, here's the weird racist part
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:47am Dave B:

Wait a sec - are people from Andora refered to as "Andorians"?

http://startrek.com/legacy_media/images/200306/tos-044-thelev-an-andorian-/320x240.jpg

oh... Never mind
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:48am the anchovy:

Ciao Meghan, Ciao everyone,
fully enjoyed this Italian trip! after been there this summer. Glad.
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:48am Chuck:

Yes, the same thought came to me, Dave. hehe...
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:50am Meghan:

ha yep.... when being politically correct didn't matter....

Ciao Anchovy!
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:53am pierre:

"Ça Sent Si Bon La France"

hahahahahahahahaha… can't stop laughing, this song is so perfect in its cliché(s)
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:53am fred von helsing:

quand j'étais petit je n'étais pas grand... je montrais mon cul à tous les passants...
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:56am fred von helsing:

Mlle. DJ did you like the cover songs? Should I post them for everyone ?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:58am Dave B:

Whatcha Got Fred?
  Thu. 9/1/11 6:58am Meghan:

I haven't even been able to fully listen yet! But yes, share!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:01am fred von helsing:

workin' on it...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:03am Dave B:

a friend of mine turned me on to Corrine Bailey Rae, with her covering "Since I've Been Loving You"

really good stuff...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:05am Meghan:

grrrrr... fred.... I thought I got your songs on here.... and I didn't! I have the file, but I think my computer crashed when I was dragging them over! EEEP!!!! Damn it! I wanted a song about St. Tropez! Fixing now.... stupid computer....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:05am George UK:

No Artist from No Album?!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:05am pierre:

great song about Monaco here
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:06am Dave B:

@George UK - "this is not the song you are looking for"

Marcus will be proud of that Jedi Mind Trick
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:07am hamburger:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:08am pierre:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:08am fred von helsing:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:09am Meghan:

George..... I KNOW! I am dying to know who it is.... but sadly there was absolutely no info. and Hamburger.... totally!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:09am Chuck:

What's up with the "Marcus" joke, Dave?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:11am fred von helsing:

OK, I didn't want to steal Mlle. DJ's thunder so I filtered a few out, but here's some fun t00nz: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/367739/Meghan2.zip
Pussycat's "La Plus Fort" is absolutely one of my favoritest songs, it just SWINGS, it's a never-fail when DJ'ing
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:11am Dave B:

Check Elwyn's Facebook posts from yesterday


Thanks for this Meghan!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:13am Meghan:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:18am pierre:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:21am fred von helsing:

Montreal French accent is hilarious, it makes everyone there sound totally demented
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:22am pierre:

correct, that is a weird accent.
But their french is much richer than ours (french from france)
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:23am pierre:

(lunch break - see you in a minute - thinking of buying spanish food)
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:23am Mary Lorson:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:24am fred von helsing:

listener poll: should I skip lunch and stick to the show
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:25am Chuck:

Depends on how hungry you are, Fred....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:25am hamburger:

dark night of the theme park!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:27am Dave B:

in the early days of HBO there was a Steve Martin special where he mentions that "In order to speak French, you must put a rubber band around your lips"
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:27am hamburger:

how about a 3 hour loop of Willie Nelson's - On the road again... that song just has everything....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:27am Meghan:

Thanks Mary! Send it along! That would be great!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:27am Simon:

Fred - you can head out for 5 minutes when Meghan plays Freddie Mercury and Monsterratt Caballe
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:28am Parq:

Ah, I'm just in time for the Spain set.
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:28am Dave B:

@hamburger - or just slow it down so it spans three hours
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:29am Meghan:

ha! Simon that got cut..... just couldn't do it....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:30am fred von helsing:

Mlle. DJ I just posted a call for songs for you on the group Awesome Technicans!
https://www.facebook.com/groups/205137716207635/ but don't be surprised if they're all about duct tape...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:30am Dave B:

@Meghan - only 474 of those stupid iTunes protected files.

Musta been from my early days of building the library. I know what I'll be doing for some of this weekend...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:31am Andy in Berlin:

Here's one for the touring:
I, Ludicrous- We're The Support Band
You'll like the video, it's a take off on Thunderbirds et al
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEBOwHeyYoo
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:31am Dave B:

474 of 89,940.... not too bad.
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:33am hamburger:

@Dave B: yes. See how much work we've saved Meghan?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:33am jeff p:

why does the woman with the harp on the front page have a huge bra on her head?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:33am Meghan:

hahaha nice Hamburger! I think I have been sent about 200 of those.... hehe
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:34am Dirty Old Man:

Lady of Spain I adore you.
Take off your clothes and I'll explore you.
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:34am Simon:

What a shame, i'm pretty sure they didn't do a duet about roadies and tour buses so no chance to redeem yourself next week.
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:34am fred von helsing:

Groupies - there should be plenty of songs by GTO - that was a silly Zappa side project, I think Pamela des Barres was in the band
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:36am mohawkdave!:

Hiya!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:36am Dave B:

@Fred VH - "Crew Slut" by Zappa.

Morning DOM and Mohawkdave! and Jeff P too!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:38am Dave B:

(i need more coffee and don't feel like typing)
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:39am fred von helsing:

@DaveB pretty damned rude lyrics! Hooray for web-only!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:40am Dave B:

oh yeah!

"it looks just like a telefunken U-47"
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:41am jeff p:

I have a tour song for you... and/or a japan song...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:41am Dave B:

Is this Steve Bent song playing at the right speed?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:42am Meghan:

ha it was Dave.....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:42am Chuck:

Coffee is done and yet I feel like I need to go back to sleep. No reflection on the show...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:43am Parq:

Shall we call this the Manchego set?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:43am Andy in Berlin:

(sound of hand slapping head) I totally forgot about:
In A Castle In Spain - Buster Poindexter (from the Disney tribute record)
Spanish Castle Magic - Jimi Hendrix (or the Spin Doctors)
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:45am fred von helsing:

A Castle in Spam ? Or do I need new glasses ?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:45am Meghan:

I think I might end up doing a castle theme...... Ha, no Fred, you are just mixing up two Monty Python sketches...

Mmmmmm, Manchego.....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:47am jeff p:

"king of spain" by Moxy Fruvus?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:48am Meghan:

wow, I hadn't thought of Moxy Fruvus since college. There was a guy who lived down the hall from me that loved them.....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:48am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

Skipped gym tonight!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:50am Meghan:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:50am Dave B:

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:51am pierre:

Bonjour Marcus (Elwyn)

  Thu. 9/1/11 7:53am Chuck:

Portugal is gonna be interesting. Can't think of that many songs about it....
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:55am jeff p:

we missed you guys saturday night
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:55am Elwyn:

We're in Spain. Shouldn't I be Marcio or something?
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:55am fred von helsing:

Faceborg suggests: Motörhead - (We Are) The Road Crew
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:55am krebstar:

Hey Megan, I'm a jersey native, living overseas, and my first question to all friends and family (after, "are you OK?) was "how stoopid was the media?".
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:56am jeff p:

IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:56am Chuck:

Speaking of flooding, Meghan, the Wallkill is still impassable on route 299. At least it was yesterday...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:57am fred von helsing:

oh man I'm glad I don't have a hangover for this song
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:57am Jim Devoid:

Meghan, remember that your show goes out well beyond the NYC area - we had major damage less than 30 minutes from our home in the Catskills and a hour or so north in the Adirondacks. Whole towns were wiped out. It would have been worse 'death-wise' if if wasn't so hyped.
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:58am Chuck:

Speak for yourself, Fred v H...
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:58am fred von helsing:

speaking of intrepid DJ's... I just watched "The Boat That Rocked"... it's very silly but very entertaining. Part 1 is a John Hughes sex farce and part 2 is "Titanic" on drugs, but the whole package is really a lot of fun
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:59am Dave B:

@ Meghan and everyone - I work for one of the big three old school media companies in the states, and this kinda fear mongering is the thing that embarrasses me most.

I think the weather department should be paid on a scale of accuracy, and be fined when they get it way wrong.
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:59am jeff p:

I don't think anyone was expecting things to be as bad as they were in the Adirondacks or esp. Vermont
  Thu. 9/1/11 7:59am Meghan:

Hey there Jim.... I mean the 24/7 coverage..... that was a bit much. Granted, it was bad, but they were reporting the same stuff over and over.... What they were saying was important, but it was crazy over the top....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:02am Dave B:

and now for a brief intermission:

Europe: The Promised Land of Godless Bolzhevism and Shameless Floozies! I love it!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:05am Jim Devoid:

I understand on the 24/7 aspect, Meghan. I just put on the old weather radio ( O=I love those robot voices!) and turned the TV off. To be honest, I did once with that Jim Cantore was washed out to sea on th eone time that I put on the WC...OK, I said it.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:06am fred von helsing:

@DaveB thank you. that was strangely refreshing.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:06am Elwyn:

I don;t think most of my friends like those animated GIF TVs I send them! One of my friends who is a cop and loves soccer, deleted the post of the guy lining up to kick a soccer ball into an open door of a police van.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:06am Simon:

On a lighter note; one of the numerous Weather Channel captions; "Virginia gets pounded by Irene"
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:06am Jim Devoid:

uggh: "wish that" not "with that"
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:07am Jim Devoid:

@Simon: lolz!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:08am Meghan:

I posted that one Simon!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:08am fred von helsing:

Animated GIFs? You want Señor Gif! http://senorgif.memebase.com/
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:09am Dave B:

@Elwyn - that's what I love about em...

I used the one from Groundhog Day to announce my leaving my job just the other day....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:10am fred von helsing:

Wow nice, this Portugal set is really wandering off into some very cool styles
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:11am Elwyn:

For Meghan: http://www.gif.tv/#/giftv-964-ralph
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:11am Meghan:

One of the major tv stations (i don't know which one... they are all the same to me) had the news on the entire time. The broadcasters looked battered and then when they switched to "fresh ones", that wasn't any better!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:11am Chuck:

Agree, Fred...
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:15am Kevin:

Bla song = good
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:17am Dave B:

  Thu. 9/1/11 8:19am Chuck:

*snicker*
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:20am fred von helsing:

Is murder ballads a real music style? I heard a band do nothing but at a folk festival, it was cool
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:20am Dave B:

Elwyn/Marcus -

If you want to save those GIFs local, change the "#" to "gifs" and add ".gif" to the end of the URL

So:
http://www.gif.tv/#/giftv-370-trekyup

becomes:

  Thu. 9/1/11 8:21am Meghan:

  Thu. 9/1/11 8:23am pierre:

very very Nice portugal set Meghan !

@ Dave B: i've posted your link of the gif-TV, and a friend told me that he knew the guy who created this site. I don't know what to do with this info, but still. Small world.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:25am Dave B:

Indeed Pierre

I love the intarwebbes...
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:26am fred von helsing:

@DaveB it's a system of tubes, it's not like a truck
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:27am jeff p:

  Thu. 9/1/11 8:27am pierre:

  Thu. 9/1/11 8:30am Chuck:

  Thu. 9/1/11 8:30am Meghan:

  Thu. 9/1/11 8:31am jeff p:

I can't WAIT until Meghan plays the Africa set and I get to hear Toto!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:31am Elwyn:

I voted for each time Meghan asked us to vote!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:32am Dave B:

@Jeff P - HA!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:33am Meghan:

Jeff... just come to the 80's night... I play it each time....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:34am jeff p:

CHEATER CHEATER CHICKEN EATER! Playing a song twice....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:35am mohawkdave!:

Too busy to chat today..........but this song always makes me happy!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:36am jeff p:

yeah, it is a great song....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:36am fred von helsing:

So I wonder, where is the definitive rock and roll song about the European Union ?
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:36am Meghan:

oh Jeff.... like you heard it the first time..... it was my first full time show. I think the only two people that were here to hear it was Chuck and Andy.....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:38am Dave B:

@Fred - European Super State by Killing Joke....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:38am fred von helsing:

oh good grief
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:38am Elwyn:

I have this from that Liz Berg premium a few years ago. That was a premium that keeps on giving!!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:38am jeff p:

O...M...F...G...

I no longer care if you played that song twice. YOU'RE A WINNER IN MY BOOK FOR THIS!!!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:39am Maria D:

This rules
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:40am Chuck:

Sounds like it's being played on a cheesy Casio keyboard! hehe....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:41am Meghan:

I had to get it in there, right? It is Chuck...
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:41am pierre:

i like the drums part on this one.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:41am Dave B:

8 bit deliciousness!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:43am Chuck:

I suspected as much!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:43am mohawkdave!:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:44am fred von helsing:

why am I suddenly craving Brussels sprouts ?
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:45am glenn:

the p-furs make pretentiousness sound so delicious.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:46am Marmalade kitty:

good morning!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:47am Meghan:

morning MK! Morning glenn!
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:50am glenn:

roxy music also kinda makes pretentiousness sound delicious. (but better). good morning, miss meghan.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:50am still b/p:

Poor poor Bryan sounds so sooooo bluuuue.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:51am fred von helsing:

but ya know what? yeah Roxy is good but... all the things their songs tried to say, I got this feeling way down in mah bones that Anna Calvi is doing it much better !
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:54am hamburger:

ohhh... I see what you did there... see. what you did there...
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:55am glenn:

bryan was always a crooner. he just hid it very well. for a while, anyway. manzanera was the heart and soul of the band. he's a great, and very under rated guitarist.
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:55am Dave B:

Nice....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:55am Meghan:

ha.... see what I did there Hamburger?
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:58am fred von helsing:

one exception... calvi hasn't done a song flat-out abut working the singles scene... but if she does it'll be on fire
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:58am Chuck:

Time to face the day. Unfortunately....
  Thu. 9/1/11 8:58am Parq:
