Music On Only A Game

Music On Only A GameGua Gilone by Hugo Montenegro (from Cha Chas for Dancing, Time Records, 2011)

Cha chas for dancing? What else would cha chas be for? Oh, these American film soundtrack composers and their redundant song titles!

Rumford Girls by Sonny Probe (from The World is a Stupid Place, Smasheasy, 2011)

I know a bit about Rumford, since one side of my family is from there. I've never known any people as able to squeeze something out of nothing as they are. So I'm not surprised that a town with a population of about 6,000 would be able to raise a disproportionately large amount of money and volunteers to attract a cross country skiing event. Maybe we should have them work on fixing the US economy. It appears Mr. Probe, if that really is his name, is also in the business of squeezing something out of nothing.

Curley Shirley by Otto Sieben (from Music for TV Dinners, Scamp, 1997)

Our stalwart fallback when all else fails. Thank you, Scamp Records! May you release one kitschy platinum record after another in that rumored Alternate Universe.

Gotta Move by Hai Karate (from Start Your Engines, Side One Dummy, 1999)

Who? Me? You? Her? Let's get a subject into that song title, buddy!

Math Stomp by The Terrible Twos (from If You Ever See An Owl, Vagrant, 2007)

The twos aren’t terrible, the threes are. It's just that "terrible threes" is not very alliterative.
