    i've been thinking about what my theme song should be. (and no, it's not "Rat in a Cage" by Smashing Pumpkins.)

    here are some possibilities:

    Good Day Sunshine (Beatles) - nice, but a little boring and not energetic enough. plus it reminds me of the 'getting better' ad campaign for philips.

    Head Held High (Velvet Underground) - might be a contender.

    Good Vibrations (Brian Wilson/Beach Boys) - great song, but maybe a little kitschy and too hard to sing.

    ----

    anyway, i was wondering if anyone else had a theme song. it's kindof a silly idea i guess, but why not?

    Excellent choice, though I'd go with "Melting Pot" myself... Had to pull that out and listen to it again.

    I have had three over the years - all instrumentals that I would like to have playing over my head as I walk around. They are:

    "Africa" by the trombonist Rico.
    "Big Black Sneakers" by the Raybeats
    "Scorpio 66" by the Action Plus
