Hey Mr DJ: Betray Us Edition

It’s not the United States anyone wants to secede from.  People want to secede from Washington, DC and its sleaze and corruption.  They’d best remember where their loyalties lie.  The connected and powerful in DC are screwing each others wives on a scale not seen since Caligula forced the Senators’ wives to become whores to raise money for the state (an intriguing idea).  And then Elmo ended up with a flicker of a sex scandal.  WTF?  Hedonism, decadence, and arrogance are all the rage.

This week, some of our most viewed and debated posts were about the Washington DC sexcapades of Americas greatest post-9/11 general and the re-emergence of secession.  Hell, I even hated on the Constitution.  You all clearly love some hot, juicy betrayal and sexy rebels.

And so soon after our good and wholesome revival.  So this Friday, I’m callin’ yer cheatin’ hearts.   Here is your chance to cause a scandal.   Do it because it feels good and ignore the shame.  Let’s have some treacherous music of the following:

1. Sexual affairs: Cheating, two-timing, cuckolding, double-dealing, douche-bagging, and running off.

2. Any country music song from anyone, ever.

3. Music that can be considered treasonous, secessionist, separatist, seditious or even slightly anti-American (or anti-British, anti-Dutch, etc).

4. Anything by any band that split up in a bad way

5. You can even betray the theme itself by playing whatever the hell you want to.

Broadwell Bonus: A song bearing something along the lines of “Stay away from my man, you bitch”. Pissed off, jealous females. Yes. This is what I want.

The embedded video is the playlist.  I’ll add everyone’s selections as the day goes on.

Keep an eye on each other. Buncha no good, lyin’ dogs around here.

First up:

Your Cheatin’ Heart by Patsy Cline

Next, a tribute to those who carried it away last week.  And had sex with it. One for each of you, you heartbreakers:

Rebel Rouser by Duane Eddy (Mississippi Yankee)

Life During Wartime by The Talking Heads (CM)

Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order (working man)

Hoochie Woman by Tori Amos (thelastdakrat [Video won’t play as part of a playlist. You’ve been cheated.])

    Your 80’s selections took me back, blameme, to when I was a naive young Thrill-ling who knew nothing of such things. Today, I still find those 80’s women’s fashions and hairstyles to be incredibly hot. Any chance of bringing that back, ladies? MOAR HAIRSPRAY! SCREW THE OZONE LAYER!!!111!!

    I discovered this feller Gene Watson about 10 years ago (he might have been dead by then) but this guy knew heartbreak and lyrics.

    To play off of your post yesterday about Hip Hop music and brain activity I’d like to show all y’all what life was like back when black guys could sing. Doo Wop is one of my bestest kind of music

    The Jarmes – A little Bit of Soap

    Jackie Wilson – Lonely Teardrops

    This sad, romantic ballad composed by Buddy Johnson in 1945 was recorded by Lenny Welch on the Cadence label in 1963, reaching number 3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.

    Sorry to hear about your loss too pfluffy. It looks like we’re in for a few busy days in Atlanta this weekend. I’ll send you an email to see if we can somehow find some time to hook up.

    However, I’m glad you didn’t run off on us like Santino. He said he’d be back…
