Pieces Of Fate

We're like, country and stuff... y'all!

We’re like, country and stuff… y’all!

It’s time for one final selection from DJ Scratchy’s Broken Heart’s Club Band in Mecca meccamuzakmondaysMuzak Monday’s February tribute to unValentine’s Day.  The notebook’s getting thin on fine MMM fodder… largely because our store somehow got skipped over for the new CD that’s playing loud and clear in the next town over’s Mecca.  But I’ve managed to find another musical tale of love gone horribly wrong to make the new order of your blue Monday even bluer…

Despite a neverending winter that continues to bring snow, ice, glaciers, wooly mammoths, and temperatures about a billion below zero (on the Kelvin scale!)… our store continues to greet customers coming in from the cold with plenty of Beach Boys and other summer party songs from last year’s Summer CD.

Hot fun in the wintertime!

Hot fun in the wintertime!

One of the songs from that CD, as well as 2013’s Summer playlist, was by the duo you see sittin’ on top of that beat up Ford.  You probably recognize the their names from their solo work… Jessica Harp and Michelle Branch.  They formed a country pop duo in 2005 called The Wreckers, which had one big hit from ’06… and a rather lovely song it is too.  Here’s “Leave the Pieces”:

What do love and chileh have in common?

Besides giving you heartburn...

Besides giving you heartburn…

You just know there’s gonna be a big dump coming, and it ain’t gonna smell very good.

Should I stay or should I go?  Well, I kinda want to break it off…. but your feelings, I don’t want you to be hurt dear!  Not that having to hang around in an obviously broken relationship really feels any better, numbnuts.  This Wreckers song just basically reiterates the message Huey Lewis had for his love 20 years prior… if this is it, please let me know!!!

You made me so upset, bitch, that I buried my bandmates in the sand just to blow off some steam!

You made me so upset, bitch, that I buried my bandmates up to their necks in the sand just to blow off some steam!  Don’t make me fetch the fire ants too!

Set me free, why don’t you babe?  Well, you’ve finally been set free from my tribute to skunky lurve…

Smells like two country songs in a row!

Smells like two country songs in a row!

MMM returns to its regular programming in March… and hopefully soon, we’ll find some new Mecca gems to add to the archive!

    Your love/chileh analogy makes me wish I had tagged you for that four-word-love phrases thing.

  3. I could actually USE a dose of Beach Boys right now. Definitely.

    I saw the guy stripping for his gf and leaving a huge poo stain in his undies. The vid has been around forever, but i just saw it on her phone. So sheltered. So gross and funny at the same time. Maybe they ate chileh before.

    • I will never be able to watch Hogan’s Heroes again without trying to imagine Major Hochstetter trying to spit out “squirrel.” At least Boris Badenov showed that the Ruskies had no problem with that word….
