Okay, Mix Six fans, if you’re also a reader of the Pop Politico posts you’ll know that I’m not a gun advocate when it comes to home defense.Â But that doesn’t mean that I can’t “cross the aisle,” light up a big Cuban cigar, throw some meat on the BBQ, and celebrate Guns! Guns! Guns!Â So here we go with a mix that’ll make you want to either shoot some guns in happiness, or run for cover!Â Also included are some memorable movie clips for some .44 caliber fun.
“Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down),” Nancy Sinatra
Sure you probably remember this from the Kill Bill Vol. 1, but how many versions have you heard with Terminator dialogue mashed in to the intro?Â You’re welcome.
“Happiness Is a Warm Gun,” The Beatles
Is happiness a warm gun? I’ve always thought happiness was good times with family and friends.Â But what do I know? I’m just a guy who enjoys the more pedestrian things in life. You know, family, friends, good food, well mixed cocktails, music, books, films, road biking, Battlestar Galactica, and The Office.
“Woke Up This Morning (Chosen One Mix),” A3
If you’re a guy, sometimes you wake up with wood … and sometimes you wake up with a gun — well, if you’re Tony Soprano.
“Miuzi Weighs A Ton,” Public Enemy
If miuzi wasn’t heavy I’d probably fire it/I’d make you walk the plank if I was a pirate/If they made me a King, I would be a tyrant.
Hmm…I’m sure there are some county supervisor seats that would make for a good fit for you — you know, with attitude like that, Chuck.
“Water Song/Janie’s Got a Gun,” Aerosmith
I’ve seen the video for this song more times than I can count, and I’ve heard the song probably more times than I can count, but damn if I don’t hear “Jamie’s got a gun” whenever I hear this tune.Â And you know what else?Â You can substitute the lyric “Janie’s got a gun” with “My Uzi weighs a ton” without any effort. Try it, kids.Â It’s fun!
“Love Gun,” KISS
If Paul Stanley is doing what I think he’s doing in this song, you’re probably not going to want to be on the receiving end of the love gun spray — unless, you know, you’re into that kind of thing.
