Music On Only A Game




Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by The Maine (from Punk Goes Pop 5, Fearless Records, 2012)

If Cyndi Lauper were dead, she'd be rolling around in her grave.

Tebow and the Jets from New York Jets/Fan Anthems

Because "McElroy and the Jets" just doesn't fit.

Workaday World by Jack Beaver (from Music for TV Dinners, Scamp, 1997)

This pluckily plucked and effervescent diapason is a longtime favorite of Only A Game listeners. Those familiarly flighty and frivolous figures make it easy to imagine oneself as a 1950′s supermarket stock boy, the Chief Seamstress of a successful pre-Elvis drapery business or just a staff member of NPR’s only sports program.

Flexible Flyer Flexible Flyer by Brian Dewan (from The Tarquin Records All Star Holiday Extravaganza, Tarquin Records, 2000)

I love this verse:

Grease those rails with a block of wax
Leave a pair of trails like railroad tracks
My runners are sharp, so listen to me
Stay out of my path, or I'll cut you in three

Kinda brings me back to those carefree childhood days.
