As some of you may know, I love Oingo Boingo
. Danny Elfman is a musical genius and I freaking love their music... with the exception of one song called "Not My Slave"
. It's just kind of bleh and not terrifically interesting and basically the aural equivalent of wallpaper to me. I don't really know why.
Today I was browsing around FYE when I came across an album entitled Dead Bands Party
, which is an Oingo Boingo tribute album. I was elated! And it had The Aquabats, Reel Big Fish, and Suburban Legends on it, whom I like! How bad could it be? I mean really?
Lo and behold, it's kinda bleh, but the one song on it that I actually really enjoyed was the cover of... "Not My Slave". Go figure. I guess there's no real point to this story. It just struck me as a bit funny. The story's basically over now and you can stop reading now. I mean it. There's nothing else. Seriously. Stop.
