Thread: Suggestions For This Year's Coachella Theme Song

  1. #1

    Default Suggestions For This Year's Coachella Theme Song

    It started in 2007. Right about the time when I'm getting off the 10 to Jefferson and it starts to sink in that Coachella is not far away. And especially coming in at night when you get to Avenue 52 and the spotlights are calling you in. I like to have a soundtrack to that. It's usually Coachella related.

    What say you? What's a good soundtrack for 2009? Can be a song or an album.

    This is actually harder than I thought it would be, but I came up with:

    The Black Keys - 10 AM Automatic
    The Beatles - Get Back
    Fleet Foxes - Ragged Wood
    M. Ward - To Go Home

    I'm the same way with this, kb. I remember listening to Californication in '07 (cliche or not, it was spot on), and last year it was Oracular Spectacular. I'll probably have Swoon on this year.

    Other good ideas for this year:
    The Cure - Underneath the Stars
    YYYs - Hysteric
    Band of Horses - Detlef Schrempf

    I think that Illumination by Thievery Corp is the theme song for this year.

    Last year was "In Ghost Colors" on the way in. I'm also thinking "Swoon". Has to be good hot-afternoon drive music, right?

    For some reason "The Other Side of Mt. Heart Attack" by Liars is the one giving me the Coachella jitters this year. I guess it might be more appropriately a song you'd be listening to when you are saying goodbye to Coachella, but hem.

    Chemical Brothers - Midnight Madness

    There's something about this song that makes me feel like I'm breathing fresh air. Its the first song that plays on their myspace, and when you look at their tour dates you only see one, it says: Coachella Festival - Apr 18

    When I listen I envision a montage of crazy fun shit, everybody smiling and dancing, pure bliss

    When you get to the valley of windmills, if its sunny and daytime, you play THIS song....


    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    I think there are two theme songs every year:
    1 for the Sahara peeps, and another for everyone else.
