Probably like at least a few other bloggers, posting here is going to be sporadic at best until after finals. For me, that means the end of this week. The good news is I only have two finals and one's a take-home, the bad news is they both take place within 24 hours of each other: I get the take-home on Wednesday at 3 pm, it's due Thursday at the same time, and meanwhile I have an in-class final Thursday at 2:35 pm.
In the meantime, anyone have any good ideas for songs for superheroes/villains? Some of my co-workers have this unofficial mixed CD club and (probably due to the fact that I work at night and therefore have minimal contact with everyone else) I've never been invited. I thought making a "Songs for superheroes and supervillains" CD that I could distribute as cheap-o holiday presents would also act to force my way into their elitist CD-swapping. I'm not looking for stuff that's based on specific superheroes like Prince's "Batdance" or one of the half-dozen or so songs titled "Superman". More like stuff that could be said to have kind of a superhero-y/villain-y feel. For example, some songs I was thinking of using are "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces" by Ben Folds Five (the speaker seems very supervillain-y), "Show Me How To Live" by Audioslave (a song about Frankenstein's Monster that could easily be transplanted to a character like the Hulk or any number of other comic book monsters), Coldplay's "Everything's Not Lost", Tom Petty's "Learning to Fly", etc.
