Tom songs!!! (need help)
« 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.

Not for laughs, but Someone Saved My Life Tonight and Yellow Brick Road.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

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.
