NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Posted: August 5, 2011 by Keith Stone in basketball, Knicks, music, NBA

Each NBA owner tries to help their team win in different ways. Mark Cuban uses advanced stats to find undervalued players. Mikhail Prokhorov uses luxury and his endless riches to buy players that otherwise wouldn’t want to play in New Jersey. James Dolan uses music. Here’s JD & The Straight Shot performing Fix the Knicks. Yes, JD is Knicks owner James Dolan. I guess he has some spare time during the lockout. The highlight for me was the audience groaning after he mentions Isiah Thomas. That’s right, Isiah Thomas is a part of the song. There also seems to be a bit of a tap dancing interlude in the middle. They should sign whoever it is doing the tap dancing. The kid can probably move on defense. I gotta admit, this is a great way to woo free agents. Here are the full lyrics:

Everywhere I go, I hear everybody say

‘What you gonna do to make that team play’

From the folks in the street at 34th and 6th

Everyone who calls says, ‘Hey man, fix the Knicks’

 

Fix the Knicks and make them shine

Get ’em to win like it’s ’69

Hitting all their free throws and no more shooting bricks

Time to get it right and fix the Knicks

 

Doing my best and that’s my problem

I check with my friend called Isiah Thomas

Pay no mind to those nasty critics

They haven’t done a thing to fix the Knicks

 

Fix the Knicks and make them shout

Get on and win like it’s ’69

Hit all their free throws and don’t want to shoot bricks

Time to let it ride and fix the Knicks

 

We know we’re getting better, but still no respect

We score a lot of points, but where’s the defense?

Everyone’s an expert saying ‘Trade your draft picks’

You got to get ‘this guy’ to fix the Knicks

 

Fix the Knicks and make them shout

Get on and win like it’s ’69

Hit all their free throws and don’t want to shoot bricks

Time to let it ride and fix the Knicks

Fix the Knicks and make them shout

Get on and win like it’s ’69

Hit all their free throws and don’t want to shoot bricks

Time to let it ride and fix the Knicks

Summer Song 2011: Party Rock Anthem?

Posted: May 10, 2011 by Keith Stone in LMFAO, music, Summer Song 2011

Every summer has a song. I still remember hearing I’ll Be Missing You on a relentless loop during the summer of ’97. It’s almost that time of year again, which begs the question: what will be the Summer Song of 2011? Hopefully, not a Katy Perry song.

For your consideration, we have LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem. I love it. The kids call this type of music “party rock”  so this must be like O Canada. Makes me just want to take some E, throw on a hot pink shirt, and dance. The video’s pretty cool too. Kind of like the video to Thriller if Michael Jackson liked chicks. Plus, it has a robot and Jesus. Could this be our Summer Song or will we be stuck listening to Rihanna all summer? Only time will tell.
