It List: Tuesday

Before we move on to these shows, we should mention that Southern Rap pioneer and Port Arthur native, Pimp C, of UGK, has been found dead in his Hollywood hotel room. Totally fucking depressing.

Chris Welch/Will Kapinos/Brent Best (Dan's Silverleaf): This is a song swap featuring some of the main songwriters behind the groups Jetscreamer, The Drams, and Pinebox Serenade.

Billy Joel (American Airlines Center): I won't waste your time with some half-wit Pomo Klostermanian rant about how Billy Joel is actually really cool if you listen in the exact right way. I'll just say that I was a big fan as a kid and I still think he kicks total Elton John ass. My father said he was too commercial, something I didn't understand as being ruinous to an artist's integrity, until of course he did the soundtrack to Oliver And Company. It was all downhill from there. I still the think the video for "Pressure" rules. Fun Fact: "We Didn't Start The Fire" started out as a rap song.

Actually, Klosterman says Billy Joel is outside the realm of cool and cannot be judged as either cool or not cool. That's a paraphrase, of course.

Thanks, Jesseca. I forgot the "transcendent" aspect of that piece. I don't know if that makes me like it or hate it more.

We used to grip on the grain and flip them candy toys
But I'd give up all that bullshit if I could get back my boy
Off in the club smokin weed til 3, hollerin at the hoes
Spendin $4000 on me on gators and clothes
When I turned to rap, he had to chase the game
Nigga told me, "C, leave that dope, cause rappin is yo thang"
I ain't gone even lie, some nights I ride and cry
Wonderin why the real niggas always the ones to die
So I just smoke my weed and try to clear my mind
I wish that I had the power to turn back the hands of time
I wonder if there's a heaven up there for real Gs
For all the niggas in the game that be sellin keys
I keep my memories, try to keep my head strong
But baby it's hard to be strong, when yo main homie gone

David Allen Coe's "rap" song that they play on Lone Star 92.5 every now and then is better than Billie Joel's "rap" song.

"I don't shoot dope / but I'll shoot my gun"

"I call women honey / not bitch or ho"

those are the random lyrics i could remember. i dont know what the rhymes are.

Billy Joel has freaky-deaky mother issues. And Klosterman would only eat your pussy if you gave him permission to compare it to 'Saved by the Bell' in a book or some shit.
