If I was going to be a rock song, I’d definitely choose to be a hidden track. “Train in Vain,” for example. Or maybe Everclear’s “I Will Be Hating You For Christmas.” Okay, here’s one for the message board: if you were going to be a rock song, which?

I had to Google 'hidden track' and learn from Wiki what it was. I'm pretty sure there's one on the Stone Temple Pilots CD Purple. It's called My Second Album and it always makes me smile. :)

BUT, since I didn't even know what the heck it was til now, I'll have to go with a song I've always loved and whose beginning makes me want to blast up the volume. It may not be considered a rock song, but it's the one I'd "be."

Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenbaum. :)

(If not that, then just about anything Zeppelin.)

Which means I could be the song,

"Open the door get on the floor,
everyone do the dinosaur.
Boom, boom, shack-a-lacka-lacka-boom"

According to Wiki:
In the field of recorded music, a hidden track is a piece of music which has been placed on a Compact Disc, audio cassette, vinyl record or other recorded medium in such a way as to avoid detection by the casual listener. In some cases, the piece of music may simply have been left off the track listing, whilst in other cases more elaborate methods are used. In some rare cases a "hidden track" is actually the result of an error that occurred during the mastering stage of the record's production

There's more, of course......but my hubby wants on here now so I have to go! Later!

Here I go, making everything more difficult than it needs to be: What constitutes as "rock"? It's kind of subjective, right? So, yeah, you have your standards like AC/DC and Led Zeppelin, but does TOOL count? How about punk?

I guess, if hard-pressed to decide, I'd have to choose "Pet" by A Perfect Circle. But if you want to get really damn literal, there's easily five or six songs written about me in some sense. That's the bummer of having a sibling who's a singer/lyricist. Joe's damn smart with the whole not talking about his family thing, because my sister's songs disturb the hell outta me. And for that very reason, I'm not posting a link. But yeah, if I had to be any song in the world, I'd probably be one of hers.
*A sobering thought: What if, at this very moment, I AM living up to my full potential?

I would either be Killer Queen or Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Or maybe This River is Wild by the Killers.

Pretty much anything by Aimee Mann..."Redvines", "Long Shot" or perhaps "4th of July". BTW, she is a poet in the purest sense of the word. Give her a listen sometime. "Wise Up" from the "Magnolia" soundtrack is a good place to start.
