Today, on the radio, I heard the most perfectly stupid question.  It was so amazing that I had to share it with you, the Faithful Spoilerites, and get your take.  If you were awakening from a long absence of consciousness, what music would you want?  On the one hand, I’d really love the theme to Battle of The Planets but on the other, something gentler, maybe by Mike Nesmith, might be an easier re-entry.  Whether or not you want a get-psyched song or an gentle-awakening song is probably related to your favorite Beatle somehow, leading to today’s musical query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is torn between Edge’s WWE entrance theme and Weasel Stomping Day, asking: If you were awakening from a coma, what would you want to be your Wake You Up Song?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Daniel Langsdale on

    These days, it’s usually whatever’s in my head & comes out of my mouth. Some Patty Griffin or Dar Williams or such. Back when, however, probably one of my best “wake ups” was with “Where the Streets Have No Name” by U2. It builds a bright energy smoothly and really kind of gets you going.

  2. Not ‘I got You, Babe” popularized by ‘Groundhog Day’.
    ‘Good Morning, Good Morning’ from ‘Singing in the Rain’ would be peppy enough to bring me back to consciousness.
