Call me superstitious, but it just seems to me that there’s really no sense in tempting fate…
…especially when you’re floating in thousands of feet of water out in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico…
I mean, I like a good jam just as much as the next guy. I’ve even been known to bust a move and get jiggy with it every now and then myself (not really), however all in the same you know just like you don’t want to see Alive come on as the in-flight movie during your trans-atlantic plane ride, there are some tunes that hit just a little to close to your 86,000 ton floating home and no one wants to hear them booming over the ship’s sound system when the nearest patch of dry land is hundreds of miles away!
You know, songs like:
The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald (by Gordon Lightfoot)
Crash (by The Primitives)
Especially not after this little incident literally last week on the same exact boat!
Rock the Boat (Don’t Rock the Boat, Baby) (by Hues Corporation)
Makes me seasick just thinking about it…
Cavity Search (by Weird Al Yankovic)
When Customs says there are certain things that you can’t bring back on the boat with you, they mean it!
I Used to Have Money One Time (by Jimmy Buffett)
Now I don’t want to say that cruises are expensive, but…
Don’t Dangle Your Feet in the Water (‘Cause They Might Get Eaten Off By a Shark) (by Scott Sevener)
It’s just a little something I’ve been working on, however I understand that this may not exactly be the appropriate time or the place…
As the Bottle Runs Dry (by The Wolf Banes)
A shortage of alcohol does not a FunShip make!
The Ballad of Gilligan’s Island (by George Wyle & Sherwood Shwartz)
Something tells me that island would’ve been a lot less entertaining if there had been 3,000 people on it!
And last, but certainly not least…
Don’t Stop Believin’ – The Dance Mix (by Journey … and some crappy DJ)
Great song, and I’ll even let you sneak by with speeding it up and adding the dance beat, but when you start changing the lyrics around to club talk, now you’re treading on sacred ground!
