Title: Tom songs!!! (need help)
Post by: oldcore on June 02, 2017, 10:40:09 AM
I know there's a playlist of the stuff Tom plays at the top of the show.  I want to make a playlist of songs that Tom uses for comedic purposes.  For example James Ingram's "Just Once" (I gave my best, but I guess my best was never good enough) or Bad Company.  Songs that he or his guests sing or mention to get a laugh.  Wurster calls count too!  Here's what I have so far:

CCR- Proud Mary
Blue Oyster Cult- Then Came the Last Days of May
Rage Against the Machine- Sleep Now in the Fire
James Ingram- Just Once
Johnny Paycheck- Colorado Kool-Aid
Gary Puckett and the Union Gap- Young Girl, Lady Willpower
The Smiths- There is a Light that Never Goes out
Simon and Garfunkel- Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Rupert Holmes - Escape (The Piņa Colada Song)
Bad Company- Bad Company
Grateful Dead- Sugar Magnolia
Yes- Heart of the Sunrise

The Disco Strangler intro/outro in the "Lights Out" bonus comes to mind.

"Celluloid Heroes" by the Kinks deserves a spot. I actually heard Podcast Heroes first, then was listening to some Kinks albums for the first time.

What's the Killers song Tom always sings to Vegas callers?  Mr. Brightside or Human, or both?

And "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" also, I believe.
