ThemeLounge #75 – Off

Switch It Off
Switch it off. (No, not really!)

Hey, welcome back to ThemeLounge, and let me just say that nobody could be happier about finally having a new show up than yours truly. Many apologies for the delay (and no, Ian was in no way responsible!), but you’ll hear when you listen to the show that I have a new resolve and we’re going to make a focused effort to avoid going Off the grid again anytime soon. So enjoy the show! There’s tons of great music from Elvis Costello, Lifehouse, Ra Ra Riot, the Rolling Stones and more.

Now for the next show, we’re definitely going to need the help of you listeners. We’re done with the word pairing, so this time out we’re stretching a little and going with Years – in other words, songs with a specific year in the title. We’ve got a few good ones, but we will need all the suggestions you can muster in order to fill out the show. So if you’ve got a favorite tune that fits the Years theme (not the word “year” in the title, but an actual year number), let us know! Send us e-mail to the address shown at right, post a comment here on the blog, or hit the “Call Me” button at right to leave us a message!

Use the Facebook and Twitter buttons on the right-hand side of this page to find us in those places! Please like and follow, comment and tweet, and do whatever you can to turn your friends into ThemeLounge fans! See you next episode – soon! – and thanks for listening!
