F*ck You Songs
Tonight’s comment diversion comes from a regular around here, Figgy, who enlivens the comment section and brings us occasional Cannonball Read reviews. And she does it all from Central America. She writes:
A friend of mine needs to compile a playlist of songs to play for a party celebrating the demise of his horrible boss. They’ve been working for years to get her thrown out for complete and shameful incompetence and it seems like they will finally succeed. And when it happens, they want to throw a victory party. So he needs help finding some songs that basically boil down to a big ‘fuck you!’ so they can bask in the glory of her downfall.
I really don’t have many ideas, the only one I can think of right off the top of my head is “Ding, dong, the Witch is Dead!’ which is absolutely perfect but not much fun to listen to on endless loop.
So any suggestions would be more than welcome. I know Pajibans will know some angry revenge music.
My suggestion: Van Halen’s version of “Happy Trails,” a not so subtle way of saying: Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out, schmuck.
