Michael Franks and The Trashmen
I’ve noticed a reoccurring theme of posts on the J-Walk Blog wherein either John Walkenbach (or his stunt double) searches his music library for song titles based on the presence of a particular word. Given what today is, I figure it’s only fitting I do something just as fun and utterly unproductive myself.
For example, here is a list of songs from my music library on my MacBook Pro that contain the following words. Granted I only have a few gigs on music on here compared to my desktop back in Singapore, but it’s a start.
- In Search of the Perfect Shampoo — Michael Franks, Burchfield Nines
- Eggplant — Michael Franks, The Art of Tea
- Rainy Night in Tokyo — Michael Franks, Tiger in the Rain
- Dragonfly Summer — Michael Franks, title song
With all this talk about words in songs though, we mustn’t forget that The Bird is the Word. The bird bird bird. The bird is the word. Papa-oom-mow-mow-mow. Papa-oom-mow-mow-mow. Don’t you know about the bird? Everybody knows that the bird is the word!
Now if you’d excuse me, I’m off to find my way out of Sanpaku while in Search of the Perfect Shampoo. Here’s hoping I don’t get Popsicle Toes along the way.
