Forget Cyber Monday… it’s time for Earworm Monday! Who needs shoddy garbage shipped sight unseen when instead you can root around for harmonious classics in our bargain bin of rare antiquities we like to call the Dusty Vinyl Archive! Our musical shopkeeper DJ Scratchy’s always ready to let you sample our one of a kind wares that are a must for the relatives you can’t stand on anyone’s holiday shopping list. Here come the Sponkies with this week’s lump of coal in your audio stocking…
The Lords of Acid…. there’s a band name that will make you take notice when you hear it mentioned. For over a decade as far as I was concerned, they were merely a running joke between me and one of my co-workers (Who is still one of my co-workers) when we heard them mentioned late one night on the radio at work and heard exactly what you would expect to hear from a band with the name Lords of Acid. Jimmy Harnen, they are not…
Lords of Acid ensured they’d never get far on the pop charts in America by combining the ear-splitting genres of techno and industrial to give a sound you’d probably have to be high as a kite to appreciate. But credit where credit is due… the band was also full of huge preverts. One of the band’s calling cards was that their music was full of everything from subtle to quite overt sexual references… and they came up with classy album covers to match the content.
Since I never dreamed of finding out more about Lords of Acid, I’d have been completely in the dark about their unique artistic shtick if I hadn’t been tipped off to one of their most “famous” songs three years ago by an old follower of mine named Sparky Spitfire. From 1997’s Our Little Secret (No, you don’t want to know what the secret is), here’s the mischievously clever song “Pussy (Round)”…
Warning: While the song’s not explicitly dirty, you might not want to play this at work!
Even if the song is a little too scandalous for your prudish tastes,
the lolcats in this YouTube video are well worth a watch… (Edit 5/29/21: Oops, the lolcat version got taken down, probably for being too cute)
I’ll whip it out again and play another lost classic next Monday…
LOL. I never heard of that band.
Most people probably haven’t. It was luck that I even knew who they were, but once I heard the song… that you don’t forget!
I’ll have to give it a listen later.
my tom approved – his tail came up in appreciation
Cats can tell when they’re being talked about…
This brings new meaning to Cyber Monday…
I’ll bet I get more hits than Amazon…
Oh my. I’m glad no one except for the cats and Smarty was around to hear me listening to that. Hopefully it didn’t put ant thoughts in Smarty’s head. If he tries to hump one of the cats today, I’m going to blame you!
Hey, blare it outside for the squirrels to hear too! You’ll be getting more cute baby pictures in no time!
I think Shorty might have heard it through the window because he’s had better things to do than hang around my house begging for peanuts
Hey, it don’t shock me at all, I’ve heard the Ying Yang Twins….
Meanwhile, for a real shock, I freaking love lolcats. Always have. Me, who eschews emoticons and internet acronyms, who has never even typed LOL without irony. I can’t get enough of lolcats memes. I even love the creative spelling. Me, the one who shames the splitters of verb phrases and mocks the Oxford comma. Halp!
I used to be a closet fan. Then I decided that life is too damned short and let my lolcats flag fly!! Tell the truth and shame the devil….
yay 4 lolcats!
My Nana would say you are a vulgar young man! I can’t recall that group…maybe it didn’t get to the UK. Pussy is what I call my cat, to the horror of indigenous Americans. Nana called it a front bottom…🐈
I don’t think the Lords really made it anywhere…. this is just one of those songs the hip people know, which is why it took me 15 years to hear it for the first time.
Front bottom!!!! That’s great! Just the idea of a Nana referring to a front bottom makes me giggle…
I still call it a front bottom and then realize I am not 7 years old…Tee Hee!
dood…total lee awesum fotoz buddy !!….N we canna heer any mewsic on de damn pea sea two day any way; sum times we can, otherz we can’t….we wood ask IT ta fix it rite now just two heer thiz song but they all reddy leeved for de day ~ like what de H ~~~~ ♥♥♥☺☺☺
Damn tech support! Too bad, because I’d bet you’d all love it! If you ever do get to hear it, trust me, it’s really all about kitties!
Sometimes I’m actually glad I missed the 80s. This is one of those times 😉
Sorry. This time, it appears I miss the 90s, too. I think I might have also missed the first sixteen years of this century. With luck, I can miss SO much more.
It was 15 years after this song came out when I first heard about it, so don’t worry. Now it’s only 18 for you. And I’ll bet you’re glad to have this piece of lost history in your memory banks now…
I never heard this little gem but obviously I didn’t miss all THAT much! I do remember there was a block of time when bands were dancing on the edge of overkill in the “raunchy nuance” department trying to see who could totter on the edge the longest and worst. Thanks for the giggle – I too am an LOLCATS fan!
This one should be as popular as “Big Balls”, “Summer of ’69”, “Baby Got Back” and all of the other nasty classics. But none of those songs would go as well with a bunch of lolcats…
Oh my! Now I do remember that song. Pardon me if I don’t show this to the anipals here. They don’t need to start asking questions if you know what I mean. XOXO – Bacon’s DAD
Better make sure they already didn’t learn about any of that stuff from bad influences like Don Juan and Bashful….
You better believe that friend. I can’t tell you what that Houdini has learned from that evil Don Juan in the past couple of days. Shaking my head. My wife’s eyes were truly opened – LOL. XOXO – Bacon’s DAD
Aw, what a sweet song about a pet cat. Warms the heart and whatnot.
They should make a children’s book out of this song!
Not sure if I should feel aroused, disturbed, or both…
Both would be like opening up a bottle of Herbal Essences…
Nope! Not listening to your earworms today thank you very much. It is already crowded in my head with useless information like the names of every hit sitcom from the last 40 years apparently! I took a test and out of 25, I knew 24 of them! Geez… I really do have a life! REALLY! Ok.. stop laughing! I just have a really good memory, hence the earworms! I stay far far away! LOL!
When I was in 7th grade music class waaaaay back in ’87, the teacher brought in an album full of nothing but TV theme songs (Back in the day when almost every show had a real theme song associated with it), and had a just-for-fun test to see how many we all knew. I did pretty good despite the fact that a lot of them were from before my time (YAY for reruns). I’ll probably do a TV theme earworm at some point in time just because so many of them were really good…
Oh I totally agree! I loved the Beverly Hillbillies, Gilligan’s Island and Petticoat Junction! OMG! Talk about dating myself! LOL! But there were some awesome instrumentals too like Miami Vice and Hillstreet Blues! 🙂
A possum came up to my back door a few days ago… you know, I was going to try to say something funny but I’m without words. This is just too, well, kind of stupid, vulgar, and really catchy. It would be a great song for a workout play list.
