Songs in the key of Arrse

#1
Heard a song on the radio this morning on the way into work that instantly took me back to one of the great nights out that I had while serving.
Basket Case by Green Day, just makes me think of me, P*** L****** and J****** S******* playing air guitar on a table at a Xmas workshop do in 1997, while the ASM and AQ did their best to get us to stop playing silly beggars’ and get down. ignored them both until the AQ got hold of my trousers and yanked my legs out from under me. Cleaned the blood off my face and headed downtown with half the workshop to explore the delights of the local bars and ladies and ended up mullered with an fat ugly chick slapping my booze-filled cock about in a vain attempt to get me hard. Happy days.

Any songs out there which instantly remind you of a top night out with your muckers? And I’m not talking namby-pamby shit either, not interested in the first dance at your wedding or trash like that. I mean any random song which straight away makes you think of a proper session you and your mates once had

Another which does it for me is “Private Dancer” by Tina Turner, the first Canadian stripper I ever witnessed in the Sin Bin was dancing to it. Boy did she have great norks.

Folsom Prison Blues, Johnny Cash.

The CD player in the mess bar was covered with several layers of cling film to prevent damage. There was no need to change discs as it had a fine selection of JC, Kenny Rogers, mixed country and a 70s porno backing music style mix.

Whenever you walked in the bar and hit the "on" button, the first tune to play was Folsom Prison Blues. It was the opening credit music to many, many marathon sessions.

I now have a Pavlovian style response whenever I hear that tune - I can feel a killer hangover starting by the end of the first verse!

REM Everybody Hurts (Sometimes) Best shagging song ever
Sex with you must be a laugh a minute! Do you come at the finale or just top yourself?

Best night out reminding track? "Billy Jean". I hear that and I'm in Tuxedo Junction, Newcastle with the lads from my college rugby team. I pulled a medical secretary from Sunderland - she was "38" and I was 21. Oh how I enjoyed that little idyll...ginger and very tidy.

Strange Days by The Doors (the album, not just the song) used to revive any who were ready to pass out during block parties, but it would be unthinkable to put it on before 0415-ish. The wannabes who'd slunk off to bed before that time didn't deserve The Doors.

I recall entering the NAAFI complex of Ally Pally to hear Ring Of Fire echoing down the corridor many times, usually courtesy of H****, whom I affectionaltely knew as Bum, if you're on here. Back in the days when going out for a quiet pint and a natter meant six or eight pints, without batting an eyelid.

Edit: I might be lying about the Doors album, it may have been a best-of type compilation; I seem to recall it started with Light My Fire. Bloody good nonetheless.

No Cuddles I have another for the come shot

Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer (try it)
Dont .... I suspect that one's on some of his clown porn films.
You b4stards! I am starting to think that you have a calendar reminder and every six months or so you think "Yes, cuddles must have nearly recovered from the clown porn trauma...good oh, time to stoke the boiler again!"

:lol:

The album It's My Life by Talk Talk. Reminds me of Osnabruck. Also reminds me of my old Datsun Sunny as the cassette was stuck in the dash and it was all we could listen to.

Dire Staits, Tunnel of Love and (somewhat sadly) Bonnie Tyler's Holding out for a Hero. Always takes me back to Guzz and night drives across the moor in eager anticipation of banging the boss's posh daughter.

"We're going home" think it was actually called "Two of Us". by the Beatles
But anyway, it was played as we left East London (S.A.) on Intrepid on the last leg of a tour that included Australia, Korea, Japan, lots of places East including Bahrein and Kenya. Netx stop would be Gib then Pompei, getting back late February.
Oh yes, 661 Sig Tp. Lt. J. M***** was our troop officer.

1977 - Pretty Vacant - SexPistols

HMS Bulldog Junior Rates on a Run Ashore in Dover.
Well into a good run and this came on the "juke box"
All matelots started Pogoing around the small bar bouncing off each other

Result:

"You're Barred, Get out before I CALL THE POLICE!!!!!!! "

We was only dancing Chief, we didn't break anything!

"Get OUT"

So we drank up and pogo'd out of the bar. It was his loss


Slightly off topic

1984 on RFA Diligence in Junior Rates Mess we had a VHS Video Player, but, for the 6 months of my tour, the only Tape we had was "Bullshot" A "comedy" about Bullshot Crummond the all English Hero with Billy Connelly in it.

Played so often it was part of the joining routine and we used to recite great chunks of it.

Site of many a good "gozome" p1ssup that mess

Another member of this site frequently comes out with quotes from the film and my quizzical looks resulted in him dusting off the vhs player so I could watch it. Highly recommended!

On a similar note, anyone who attended Worthy Down around 1988/89 will remember the NAAFI having a video jukebox with what seemed like only 10 songs on it. Of particular note were Sam Brown (can't remember the name of the song, only that all the lads used to comment about her red lips in the video), Paula Abdul's "Opposites Attract" and The Firm's "Star Trekking", which now always remind me of getting horribly pissed in aforementioned NAAFI and allowing a gwar sapper tie me up with electric flex...<shudder>

Off-track: is the bar in camp centre still caused JT's?
On-track: Wonderwall by Oasis. A lot of good nights in Cyp 95.

Grease - You're the one that I want.

Guildford out with a load of reccy mechs and metalsmiths, all of us sh1tfaced in Flares.

cue me crying my eyes out laughing at my mate who (despite so tw@tted he can barely pronounce basic words) is pulling his best 80's dance moves out to impress a fat 60-something year old slapper who has gravel rash of the nipples, him convinced she is the next Abi Titmuss.
