For years now, I've been looking for the Butch Vig remix of House of Pain's song Shamrocks and Shenanegins. I'm not the biggest fan of the band, but this is one of the greatest remixed songs EVER! Carries a lot of memories for me as well.
So you figure with all the MP3s and music downloads that're available to us over the internet these days, this would have been easy, right? Wrong. It was like an episode of the Twilight Zone for a while there where I thought I was the only person who remembered this song and it had been erased from the collective conscious of the rest of the Earth. Then my buddy Steve Pakula and I were out at the Dead Poet last week and Meredith, our new favorite bartender, actually played it off her iPod! Needless to say, I freaked. The beers and Jamison in me only helped increase the levels of my excitement! The song did exist! I was no longer alone!
Turns out Steve had it on his iPod too and when he got home (and sobered up) he was kind enough to e-mail the MP3 over to me. Now I can listen to "Boom Sha Lak Lak Boom" over and over to my heart's content.
"Is it Erica Boyer or Marcia Brady?"
