I.Q. - Tales From The Lush Attic.

Everytime I hear this album I get whisked back to 1983, when I was a huge fan of Talisman.

Played "Ticket to Ride, Europe" over the weekend and the Beatles song has been going through my mind ever since.

Funker Vogt - Under Deck. Mostly because I was listening to this album/song while reading the rules for PoG, but also the lyrics are about warfare. If only I could play the game...

Led Zeppelin - Achillies Last Stand

This was a big AOR song when I first learned to play Luftwaffe. And there are some lines dear to any would-be aviator's heart:
Oh to ride the wind
To tread the air above the din
Oh to laugh aloud
Dancing high above the clouds

Possibly vice versa, but I always put Yo La Tengo: The Sounds Of The Sounds Of Science when we engage in a game of Reef Encounter. Saw them perform it live to the film earlier this year. Amazing.

From Styx:

"Oh Mamma, I'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Law men has put an end to my running and I'm so far from my home
Oh Mamma, I can hear you a crying you're so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for a bounty..."

From Steve Earle

My very first pistol was a cap and ball Colt
Shoot as fast as lightnin' but it loads a mite slow
Loads a mite slow and soon I found out
It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out
So then I went and bought myself a Colt 45
Called a peacemaker but I never knew why
Never knew why, I didn't understand
Cause Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

Alice Cooper's Desperado

I'm a gambler
And I'm a runner
But you knew that
When you lay down

I'm a picture
Of ugly stories
I'm a killer
And I'm a clown

Step into the street by sundown
Step into your last goodbye
You're a target just by living
Twenty dollars will make you die

I wear lace
And I wear black leather
My hands are lightning upon my gun

My shots are clean
And my, my shots are final
My shots are deadly
And when it's done

You're as stiff as my smoking barrel
You're as dead as a desert night
You're a notch
And I'm a legend
You're at peace
And I must hide

Tell me where the hell I'm going
Let my bones fall in the dust
Can't you hear that ghost that's calling
As my Colt begins to rust
In the dust

I'm a killer
I'm a clown
I'm a priest
That's gone to town

A favorite of mine by Wilco....


Well the money's pouring down and the people all look down,
And it's floating out of town
I hit the second deck and I spend my paycheck,
And my wife that I just met, she's looking like a wreck

Casino Queen, my lord you're mean
I've been gambling like a fiend on your tables so green

I always bet on black, blackjack,
I'll pay you back
The room fills with smoke and I'm already broke,
And the dealer keeps on joking as he takes my last token

Cleaned a lot of plates in memphis
Pumped a lot of tane down in new orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on a riverboat queen

Big wheel keep on turning
Proud mary keep on burning
And we’re rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

I was listening to the same two Dimmu Borgir songs (#2 and #4 on Death Cult Armageddon, I think) over & over when I first read about this game, and downloaded its rules, and brought it home & set it up, etc. etc. So now whenever I hear either of those songs, I get that great new-game-excitement feeling. (Not the "I can't believe those bastards ganged up on me again" feeling, strangely.)
