Did we overdress in our pseudo-80's wardrobe for our appearance today?

meccamuzakmondaysAlright, the turkey talk and family togetherness is all over.  It’s Monday, and assuming all of the cyber shopping doesn’t bring the internet to s screeching halt, I plan on bringing you another brick and mortar edition of Mecca Muzak Monday!  DJ Scratchy promises you won’t have to pay any shipping and handling charges for this week’s C.O.D. delivery of merry muzak that promises to have you dancing in the virtual aisles while you make sure to type in your credit card number correctly for the thief who is going to do all of his holiday shopping in your name…

Yo!  Thanks for the bling, yo!

This week’s featured artist is a band named Cobra Starship… a name that sounds like it was inspired by a G.I. Joe cartoon.  The group formed in 2003 and one of their first big breaks came when they got the honor of working on the soundtrack for the befitting movie “Snakes on a Plane.”

Get your mothafuckin' muzak out of my mothafuckin' store!

Their Wiki page classifies the band as “dance pop,” which is a pretty accurate description of the song they had appear in the sixth hour of this year’s muzakal goldmine that was the Spring CD.  Cobra Starship teamed up with those 90’s bitches, Icona Pop, to come up with this wonderfully earwormy song “Never Been In Love”….

Hey, even supposedly famous musicians like to have fun in amusement parks when they’re not open to the unwashed masses.  It reminds me of the time in the early 90’s when me and my sisters nearly got to ride the same water ride at Six Flags as Marky Mark and a few of his Funky Bunch members (who, of course, didn’t have to wait in line like the rest of us)…

I hope your underwear is waterproof, Mr. Wahlberg.

Back to Cobra Starship, another tidbit on their Wiki page is the fact that they apparently just officially broke up a couple weeks ago on November 10th.  That means that not only is this 2014 song probably their last big hit, but they apparently still have at least one devoted fan who knows how to timely edit a Wiki page…

I'm all over it!  It's not like I'm going anywhere...

In a revolting development, the newly rechristened Mecca Radio predictably switched over to all Christmas music during the holiday… which I’m pretty well numb to by now.  But those pop-crap carols are being interrupted about every 10 minutes by bad karaoke singing advertisements by some guy named Craig Robinson.  It’s bad enough to have to listen to musical commercials for nine hours straight, but needless to say, Craig Robinson can’t fucking sing and has already gotten on the last nerves of just about everyone in the store.  And it’s not even December yet!  Thanks a lot for taking away the CD’s and bringing back the “Radio” for us associates to “enjoy.”  And here’s to you, Mr. Robinson…

Stick it in your pantry.... or maybe somewhere else where ti doesn't shine.

I’ll be back with more next week…. if my brain doesn’t turn to “Buy your gifts at MEEEECCCCAAAAA!!!” mush…

    They should have gone all in and named themselves Cold Slither. (Let me know if you have to Google that one too!)

    I’m ordering eye bleach.

  3. oh my… at 0:49 I thought he is nekked… I don’t know what they mix in breakfast tea, but I like that kind of halluzinations :o)

  4. My beloved husband has a thing about snake and not in a good way. Thus we never saw “Snakes On a Plane” or, for that matter, any movie which we knew in advance features snakes. Perhaps this is Garry’s opportunity to catch up with previously rejected media? Nah 😀

    • I’m not a snake person either, and couldn’t live in one of those areas where big, honkin’ snakes just roam about like they own the place along with the alligators and scorpions…

    Quite a jolly little number! Where did they get their name from, I wonder? Opening the dictionary at random pages, or a game of one-ups-manship with Jefferson Airplane (who later modernised to Jefferson Starship in a futile attempt to keep up)?

    • Let’s not forget Jefferson Starship later just became plain old Starship. If Cobra Starship had tried that tactic, then we’d probably have a good old fashioned musical lawsuit on our hands…. unless they’d have just changed to Cobra. But then they’d get confused with an insurance plan…

    Let me just send you my condolences at this time my evil friend. It is tis the season in the retail world. I am so sorry. Please send me an SOS if you need me to kidnap you from your captors at Meca. XOXO – Bacon

    My sympathies on the Christmas music laden with annoying commercials. We get enough of that on TV and regular radio with all the commercials about how you need to buy a Lexus or a diamond or you’ll have a shitty Christmas. But at least we can turn that off. Nine hours, no escape…I would go crazy!

    • Ha! You brought up one of my favorite commericals!

      I’d gladly take the old Christmas CD back at this point… at least it was just the music. Craig Robinson, though…. he HAS TO GO!!!!

      • Trisha says:

        Those commercials (and the diamond ones) are part of the reason I’ve become so cynical about Christmas. They do make a person throw up in their mouth and hate the extremely rich just a little more! We did buy a Lexus near Christmas once…a wrecked one that probably cost no more than a $1,000. I hated that thing! Worst piece of junk we ever owned.

        There are still a lot of days until Christmas to endure the Mecca radio – you may have to stage an Occupy Mecca Muzak movement!

    HaHa. Big honking snakes roaming around like they own the place. We live near Merri Creek and the snakes are plentiful but not big. A bit deadly though. Catchy song and must feel weird seeing them at “your” amusement park.🎪
