The other day, Mrs. Village Idiot explained that she feels she would benefit from a good soundtrack.
She doesn't mean songs simply playing in the backgound, she means an actual soundtrack, like in a movie or cheesey television show.
Here she is typing, cue the "typing music". Here she is on the phone, cue the "serious phone call music". Here she is farting around on the internet, cue the "goofing off" music.
(I know, you all wish she wrote the blog, don't you. Tough, you're stuck with me).
I'm sure that she envisioned something edgy; a contemporary rock soundtrack filled with songs that are suitably artsy and yet raw with emotion. Sadly, she mentioned the idea to me, hoping for some suggestions.
I immediately offered up Mahna-Mahna, from the Muppet Show, as her theme song.
(Yeah, she hadn't heard of it either).
For those of you unfamiliar with the tune, here's a video.
In my search, I uncovered this gem also:
Needless to say, Mr. Village Idiot will be sleeping on the couch while Mrs. Village Idiot scours i-tunes for a theme song that suitably captures her majesty and grace. (Even the fact that the band Cake once covered the Mahnamahna song doesn't help).
I guess we're taking suggestions, though based on one of the comments a reader left on my Gov't Mule post, I suggest you avoid mention of any jam bands...
