I think the Japanese figure skater's song would be elevator music.

I was just reading Feral's summation of the Olympics (let's hear it for drunken blogging), and Doc Mama made an excellent suggestion for a quickie post. So I'm stealing it. If you won a gold medal and could select your own anthem what would yours be?
Right now I'm thinking Baby Got Back. Although, can you imagine making a dome full of people sit through a Grateful Dead Space Set? Oh wait, the Dead already did that. Okay so anyway, would you want to mess with people or what?

Right now I'd go with "What's My Age, Again?" by Blink 182. It's a perfectly structured unsubstantiated opinion. Yeah, I'd rock out on the way to the podium with that.

I would pick something really long, like maybe an Allman Brothers jam so I could hog the stage and the spotlight for 10 minutes or so.

Dawn, you fucking kill me!

tb - that's what I was thinking about the space set!
dawn, I'm picturing that, but I think it would be more at the Gay Games.
kathie, air guitar and everythang?

I just asked Jim, thinking he'd say something by Dylan or the Dead. He said AC/DC, Shook Me All Night Long. huh. Not what I expected.

(Madeleine said Creeque Alley or Mama Tried. That's my girl.)

Allman Brothers' "Jessica"
Neil Young's "Are You Ready For The Country?"
Mellencamp's "Little Pink Houses".

Other than Neil Young's "Natural Anthem?" It would have to be Stairway to Heaven.

Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy"

I mean, if you're winning gold, you have the right to declare yourself too sexy for Milan, New York and Japan.
