Encore

Happy Birthday Gus! Yesterday we hung out with Gus and co. all day celebrating his birthday. We sat around at Walden, went to Unos, and then played Encore at Gus's place. This game involves trying to come up with as many songs as possible that contain a given word. You have to be able to name six consecutive words surrounding the target one. For some reason, I continued to try to think of more after the game ended. And I realized that one of the words we had, "home," was ludicrously easy. This is way after the fact, grant you, but at least I can think about me "dominating the pro tour unmercifully" with these gems.

Songs with home in them:
-Rocket Man by Elton John, "I'm not the man they think I am at home. Oh, no, I'm a Rocket Man." Sung in a Stewie from Family Guy voice, of course.
-The Way by Fastball, "You can see the shadows wandering off somewhere. They won't make it home but they really don't care."
-I'll Make a Man Out of You from Mulan, "So pack up, go home, you're through."
-Spiderwebs by No Doubt, "Sorry I'm not home right now. I'm walking into spiderwebs."
-Journey Into the Past from Anastasia, "Home, love, family. I will never be complete until I find you."
-What if God Was One of Us by Joan Osborne, "Trying to make his way home."
-Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire theme, line that goes "Yo home, to Bel-Aire!"
-Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls, "You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be, and I don't want to go home right now"
-Adam's Song by Blink-182, "I couldn't wait 'til I got home to pass the time in my room alone" (extra points because that has "room" in it, another one of our words)

You're a dork extreme. Though I guess I shouldn't say anything.

Fresh Prince gets double points to for the next line:

I pulled up to the house around seven or eight/and I yelled to the cabbie "YO HOMES, SMELL YOU LATER!"
