Two Long Lists 

I made Mike a CD to remember me by. Whenever my presence is missed in the shop he can put it on...and remember why they were glad to be rid of me.

1) Holly and Lister re-enact a typical conversation with a customer..."Wait, are you trying to tell me everybody's dead?"

2) Teach Me Tiger--April Stevens
Stuff like this is as close as Mike and I can get to liking jazz.

3) Jolene--Dolly Parton
It just wouldn't be a mix disc from me without this song on it.

4) My Heart Belongs to Daddy--—Eartha Kitt
We both are fond of the filthy, dirty songs that aren't actually filthy or dirty by modern standards.

5) Bedazzled--Peter Cook
Brilliant, brilliant song, and it's a shame that the lousy Brendan Fraser film is keeping the original off DVD. "You fill me with inertia."

6) Knowing Me, Knowing You--Abba
...I like Abba, all right?

7) I Like You--Bert and Ernie
Long story behind this subtext to the song at all.

8) He is the Boss of Me--Hidden Cameras
Just another example of my weird taste.

9) Beach Blanket Bingo--Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon
For no good reason other than to melt people's brains out their ears.

10) Alas for You--—"Godspell"
I've mentioned before that this song reminds me of comics blogging for some reason.

11) City Boy--Phil Ochs
There had to be a Phil Ochs song on it. This is my favorite of the shorter, non-political songs.

12) Afternoon Delight--—Starland Vocal Band
Again, just because I'm that kind of guy.

13) 'Cause I'm a Blonde--—Julie Brown
There has to be one silly, goofy song on it.

14) A kids in the hall sketch that gets quoted far too often "You thanked Hitler!"

15) The Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum--—Fun Boy Three
Yeah, this song aptly describes working in comics retail.

16) Johnny Are You Queer--Josie Cotton
There had to be a cheesy 80s song on it, and this one felt fitting.

17) Supermodel--Rupaul
My weird sense of humor at play again.

18) Mah Nah Ma Na--—The Muppets
Long story...this song is the reason we're not allowed to say the name of a certain Dario Argento film starring Jennifer Connelly and Donald Pleasence, featuring a mutant midget and a chimp with a razor blade around Mike.

19) I Thought You Were My Boyfriend--Magnetic Fields
The disc needed more gay, and it speaks to my odd taste in music.

20) Rock DJ--—Robbie Williams
There simply had to be a Robbie song on the disc.

21) Filthy/Gorgeous--—Scissor Sisters
You could, if you were cruel, say that this song describes Mike and I...

22) Be Aggressive--Faith No More
Needs more gay...

23) Phantom of the Opera--Me First and the Gimmie-Gimmies
If you know me, you know nothing pleases me more than an unnecessary cover.

24) Pretty Fly for a White Guy--—Offspring know, I'm not actually sure, but it seems to work in context.

25) Hey Big Spender--Shirley Bassey
The remixed version. You could probably put this on permanent loop in the store.

26) Soccer Practice--Johnny McGovern
This is damn near my signature song at this point.

27) If I Were Gay--Stephen Lynch
Still not enough gay, plus we needed more funny.

28) Spike has some parting words for the comics retail industry: "Try to remember I hate you all!"
