I was just thinking of popular songs with a cachy theme :

How about 'Put the message in box' (I think that's the title) by World party

Quote

Put the message in the box
Put the box into the car
Drive the car around the world
Until you get home


Or possibly 'We're on the road to nowhere' by the Talking Heads ?

Any ideas ?

Ok, I'll bite...

You have to blame my father for the fact that this song is close enough to the surface of my memory for me to recall it here:

On the Road Again - Willie Nelson

Banjo-Jim in Michigan has adapted two songs into Geocaching songs and has performed them at our Winter Socials. We have recordings of them this year. Once they are ready and with his permission I'll post them.

The Closer you get,
The Further I fall,
I'll be over the edge now,
In no time at all.

I,m wathching the screen,
on my new GPS.
It so good to be out West,
I just looked up,
from the screen and then.
I was over the edge
and on my head.

The Closer you got,
The further I fell,
That ammo box,
went down the trail.
It hit the tree ,
and into the rock.

At that very moment
Stunned and amazed
Is when I realized
That
GEOCACHING ROCKS

Stand in the place where you live
Now face north
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven’t
Now stand in the place where you work
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven’t before

If you are confused, check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around, so

(repeat chorus)

Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason
Season is calling

(repeat chorus)

If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason
Reason is calling
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

So stand (stand)
Now face north
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven’t
Now stand (stand)
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven’t

(repeat chorus)

Stand in the place where you are (now face north)
Stand in the place where you are (now face west)
Your feet are going to be on the ground (stand in the place where you are)
Your head is there to move you around, so stand

Now what are the chances of two threads about geocaching songs in the same day? Odd!

Isn't that song by the Allmen Brothers?

Brian Snat...I can honestly say I only heard of 2 songs and about 6 of the artists from your entire list. What are you listening to? :lol:

Or am I that far out of touch?

My Vote....

Escape Club
I'll Be There

over Mountains

over Trees

over Oceans

over Seas

across the desert

I'll be there

in a whisper on the wind

on the smile of a new friend

just think of me

And I'll be there

Don't be afraid, oh my love

I'll be watching you from above

And I'd give all the world tonight,to be with you

Because I'm on your side,

And I still careI may have died,but I've gone nowhere

Just think of me,

And I'll be there

On the edge of a waking dream

over Rivers

over Streams

through Wind and Rain

I'll be there

Across the wide and open sky

thousands of miles I'd flyto be with you

I'll be there

Don't be afraid, oh my love

I'll be watching you from above

And I'd give all the world tonight,

to be with you

Because I'm on your side,

And I still careI may have died,

but I've gone nowhere

Just think of me,

And I'll be there

In the breath of a wind that sighs

oh, there's no need to cry

Just think of me,And I'll be there

I think they've done a song with the same name- no relation at all though. The one by Lemon Jelly is very good (as is the rest of their music).

Well some of my nearly 2,000 CD's and 600 vinyl records. Also college and underground radio stations, where I find some great new stuff. Its funny, the looks I get from some nose ringed, hipster record store employees when they see a middle aged, grey haired guy like me buying these CD's

ZZ Top Afterburner

I'm picking up on a signal
that's in the air tonight.
It's sparkin' my receiver,
it feels like dynamite.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

My mind is electric,
I'm about to blow a fuse.
The cockpit is empty
so shoot it down the tube.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

I've got to make a connection.
I'm on needles and pins.
Workin' up a printout
and I'm gonna zero in.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

Hmm, I thought the exact opposite. I have heard of or own CD's (got rid of all my vinyl except 50 10 years ago) by all but a few of those artists. I figure I should look them up since BS & I seem to have similar taste in music.
Even though I listen to music all the time, I have a horrible voice and rarely sing.
However I have been known to belt out The Lumberjack Song by Monty Python when I'm waaay out in the woods. :) :) :o
Adding to this list-
Road to Nowhere-Talking Heads
and um check out the sig line...

When ever I go caching I can hear this one song in my mind.
Prayer from Final Fantasy 7

I also enjoy singing "Drunken Lullabies" by Flogging Molly, I'm not sure why though, I guess it's just catchy.

I usually get the "Country Bears" soundtrack going through my head.....here's why John Hiatt could have had a really good caching tune, had he put some of these songs together.


"Let It Ride" talks about where you're coming from and where you're going to....
sun in your face...hole in your shoe

"Where Nobody Knows My Name" mentions a town down the road where I ain't been before..... nobody knows my name, or what I'm looking for

"Straight To The Heart" says things like:
we take the long way around, we get lost and we get found.......climbing mountains crossing streams..... shortest distance from lonely ... going to find a way to go


which brings us to "It's Just The Going"


nobody else can be showing which way to go....and you're not even sure where you're going to......Sometimes It's just the going :rolleyes:

I've contemplated this further and have come up with these great songs:
(click the links to go to the download site)


Jethro and Vash at the Fair

Journey of Solitude

Prayer

Bonds of Sea and Fire

Chu Chu's Flight

Metal Gear May Cry

A Storm in the Desert

Braving Tal Tal Heights

Pirates of Dragon Roost Isle

Fear Not

Shepherd Won't Alone

I have chosen these songs not so much for their lyrics (considering none of them have lyrics), but for the music. These songs emit a sort of "epicness" befitting a cache hunt, especially one that requires a good hike and ends with a true feeling of triumph!

Oh, and don't worry about the legality of downloading any of these, they're all prefectly legal, they were made to be downloaded.

Who knew that Johnny was a GeoCacher? Enjoy.

Remember Frank Sinatra's "I hit the highway?" (or somethin' like that).

And now, the park is near, and so I face the final curtain.
Too soon, I will be done, I'll find the cache, of that I'm certain.
I'll search down every trail, I'll cover each and every by-way,
and then, what will I do, I'll hit the highway.

Regrets, I've had a few, a dnf, that I'll not mention
I've grouched around the thorns, and I've complained, and felt the tension.
I've waded through the swamp, where it was dawmp, left no exemption.
And then, what do I do, I hit the highway.

For what is a man, what has he got
a gps, else he has nought.
The record shows ('cause it's time to end this thing), 1 with two zeroes,
Now, I'll hit the HI.................way!

That looks more Aussie or NZ than UK.

Oh, and the US version was orginally recorded and was on the Billboard charts in the early 60s by Hank Snow. Though the Man in Black's version isn't bad either.

How about the German folk song The Happy Wanderer:

I love to go a-wandering
Along the mountain track
And as I go, I love to sing,
My knapsack on my back.
Falleri, Fallera,
Falleri, Fallera ha ha ha ha ha
Falleri, Fallera,
My knapsack on my back.

I love to wander by the stream
That dances in the sun,
So joyously it calls to me,
Come join my happy song.
Falleri, Fallera . . . .

I wave my hat to all I see,
And they wave back to me
And blackbirds all so loud and sweet
From every greenwood tree.
Falleri, Fallera . . . .

O may I go a-wandering
Until the day I die,
O may I always laugh and sing
Beneath God's clear blue sky.
Falleri, Fallera . . . .


Happy Caching! :rolleyes:

You forgot a verse:

I love to go a wandering,
with pvc in-hand.
With dark-skinned brother,
by my side,
O wouldn't that be grand.

Fal-der-eee, fal-der-ahhh
Fal-der-eee,
in the lo-o-o-o-ock-up,

Hello muddah, hello faddah
Here I am at Camp Granada
Camp is very entertaining
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.

I went hiking with Joe Spivy
He developed poison ivy
You remember Leonard Skinner
He got ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner.

All the counselors hate the waiters
And the lake has alligators
And the head coach wants no sissies
So he reads to us from something called Ulysses.

How I don't want this should scare ya
But my bunkmate has malaria
You remember Jeffrey Hardy
They're about to organize a searching party.

Take me home, oh muddah, faddah
Take me home, I hate Granada
Don't leave me out in the forest where
I might get eaten by a bear.
Take me home I promise I will not make noise
Or mess the house with other boys.
Oh please don't make me stay
I've been here one whole day.

Dearest faddah, darling muddah,
How's my precious little bruddah
Let me come home, if you miss me
I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me.

Wait a minute, it's stopped hailing.
Guys are swimming, guys are sailing
Playing baseball, gee that's better
Muddah, faddah kindly disregard this letter.


I also like tongue twisters.

Some of my favorites:

Birdie birdie in the sky laid a turdie in my eye. If cows could fly I'd have a cow pie in my eye.

And

I'm not a pheasant plucker I'm the pheasant plucker's mate. I'm only here plucking pheasant 'cause the pheasant plucker's late.

Tried my new gps today lol.

and....?

Yep, hooked.

Found one of them no problem (I already knew the basic area anyway). The other one I couldn't find. I found the SPOT but not the cache. I'll keep my eye on the page and go look again if someone else finds it. I think it is gone though. I posted a dnf. I have another one to try after work. This weekend I plan on spending Sunday at getting to a few farther out ones lol.

Wand'rin Star -- Lee Marvin

I was born under a wandrin' star
I was born under a wandrin' star
Wheels are made for rolling, mules are made to pack
I've never seen a sight that didn't look better looking back
I was born under a wandrin' star

Life can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry
Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry
Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to
Which with any luck will never come true
I was born under a wandrin' star
I was born under a wandrin' star

Do I know where hell is, hell is in hello
Heaven is goodbye forever, its time for me to go
I was born under a wandrin' star
A wandrin' wandrin' star

(Life can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry)
(Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry)
(Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to)
(Which with any luck will never come true)
(I was born under a wandrin' star)
(I was born under a wandrin' star)

When I get to heaven, tie me to a tree
For I'll begin to roam and soon you'll know where I will be
I was born under a wandrin' star
A wandrin' wandrin' star

Sung to the tune of: "I'll Send An S.O.S" by the Police

Just a geo-cacher, a man out on the trail, oh
Another long-long walk, in which I'll prolly fail, oh
More did-not-finds than any man could bear
Someone give a hint before I fall in dispair, oh

I'll log a did-not-find ... for the owner
I'll log a did-not-find ... for the owner
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Did-not-find the ca-ache, yeah
Did-not-find the ca-ache, yeah

A year has passed since I wrote my log
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
GPS can find co-ordinates
But not the cache for you-ou

I'll log a did-not-find ... for the owner
I'll log a did-not-find ... for the owner
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Did-not-find the ca-ache, yeah
Did-not-find the ca-ache, yeah

Logged in this morning, don't believe what I saw
A hundred billion new 1/1s washed across my screen
Seems I'm not alone in did-not-finds
Hundred billion quick dashes, just a mile from my ho-ome

I'll log a did-not-find ... for the owner
I'll log a did-not-find ... for the owner
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Did-not-find the ca-ache, yeah
Did-not-find the ca-ache, yeah

Logging another did-not-find...
Logging another did-not-find...
Logging another did-not-find... ...

My modification of one famous song.... : :huh:

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to find your stash
Only to find your stash

I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to find your stash

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have missed the satellites
Felt the headache under my hair
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of frogs :lol:
I have held the hand of a frog
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the satellites come
Then all the coordinates will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running

You hid the cache and you
Created the mystery
Made the calculations
Just to tease me
Just to tease me
You know I thought I solved it :rolleyes:

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for...
:lol:

Sorry, I didn't see that Stand was posted before, I guess that I was so excited when I thought about it, I somehow blocked it out when I "should" have seen it. So, delete it I did.
