Is there anything the Interwebs are NOT good for? Of course not. When I’m not spending all my time here at Les Enfants Terribles or the various smurf pr0n sites I like to frequent, I often find myself at the Mike Doughty bulletin board. Regardless of your opinion of Mike, Soul Coughing or things related, I honestly have never come across a nicer bunch of folks online. The cats are groovy, people don’t fight for the sake of fighting, flame wars are non-existent and everyone who joins get a coupon for free sex. OK, I might be exaggerating slightly, but a better group of non-meatspace friends I’ve never made.
Penned by James “Petey Coronado” Thompson, the lyrics are almost nonsensical, having derived from a series of weird posts I had made over the years. He incorporated the trans-Atlantic talents of Katie from Australia, who adds the breathy chorus towards the end. The original has a bit of a dance floor feel to it, but in my opinion, the true magic comes across in the acoustic version. Seriously, though, have you ever heard a better line than, “He brings the Rocky Road while other fuckers bring vanilla?” Of course you haven’t. Petey, in addition to being a new father, tinkers in the music game and favors the board with his masterpieces from time to time. I certainly won’t go so far as to say he’s hit his high water mark with this theme song, but I can’t imagine he’ll ever make anything better. Equally kick ass, numerous times over? I would expect no less. To check out some more of Coronado’s musical gems, visit his MySpace page.
