OK, here's the dilly-O...<P>I'm considering making a Soundtrack CD to JA, as if it were an actual show or something, as something to give out as a prize or as something for people who donate or something... <P>So...<P><B><I>What songs do you think of when you think of Joe Average?</I></B><P>------------------

Well, what I'm thinking, in regards to setting up this CD is scoring it as if JA was a TV show (I.E. Opening Title Theme, Credits music, etc.)<P>So far, the only ones I could think of were stuff like:<P>David Bowie - "Heroes" (Opening theme)
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Soul to Squeeze" (Joe & Gwen's "Love Music")<P>'Course those are tentative... Anyone like those, or have better ideas?<P>------------------

Rejection themes: Weird Al Yankovic's "You Don't Love Me Anymore", "Since You've Been Gone"<P>Whoopie music:
The Cars: "Tonight She Comes"
OW! OW! One beating apiece, please.
Cheap Trick: "I Want You To Want Me"<P>Romance:
The Police: "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"<P>The Strip Tekken Song(you guessed it): Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting"<P>

Angst:
"I am a Man of Constant Sorrow"
"O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack<P>"Veteran of the Psychic Wars" Blue Oyster Cult<P>Love:
"Feel Like Makin' Love" Bad Company<P>"Because the Night" Patti Smith
(I personally prefer this version to the 10000 Maniacs cover, I believe that Bruce Springsteen wrote it)<P>

A cool rejection song would be Smile by Perl Jam. A cool opening could be the theme from Sanford & Son

I think a good strip-Tekken song would be the song "How many people want to kick some ass?" I just like it.

Also, when I think of the comic, I lately think of this one song that I can't remember the name of...I think it was "Somebody Else" from the end of the Bedazzled movie. The credits and all. Hmmm...
