The songs in my head

Yes, there can be more than one song running in my mind. Right now it's the Smashing Pumpkins cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" (so perfect for Billy Corgan to sing), the quieter parts of Dire Straits's "Telegraph Road" ("The radio says tonight it's gonna freeze/ People driving home from the factories/ Six lanes of traffic, three lanes moving slow") and, um, "Skeet Surfing" from Top Secret!:

Skeet Surfin'
Skeet Surfin', Skeet Surfin'
If everybody had a 12-gauge
And a surfboard too
You'd see 'em shootin' and surfin'
From here to Malibu
Because it's totally bitchin'
Ridin' wave to blast the pigeons
And it's so neat shootin' skeets
While you're riding out the heavies all day
First wave, don't get tired
Second wave, aim higher
Third wave, pull and fire
Skeet Surfin', it's alright

We're waxin' down our surfboards
And loadin' up our traps
Tell the teachers we're shootin'
We're never coming back
I've got a gun rack in my Chevy
For when the surf and the flak get heavy
And we'll have fun with our guns
'Till our lifeguard takes our ammo away

First wave, don't get tired
Second wave, aim higher
Third wave, pull and fire
Skeet Surfin', it's alright

First wave, get the knack
Second wave, pull the trap
Third wave, how's that?
Skeet Surfin', it's alright

Sharing sunsets with my favorite girl
When we shoot the curl, we really shoot the curl

First wave, don't get tired
Second wave, aim higher
Third wave, pull and fire
Skeet Surfin', it's alright

First wave, get the knack
Second wave, pull that trap
Third wave, how's that?

I wish they all could be double-barrelled
Wish they all could be double-barrelled guns

Skeet Surfin' can't you see?
Do you wanna come along with me?
Skeet surfin' can't you see?
Do you wanna come along with me?
Skeet Surfin' it's alright
Little girl we'll have fun tonight
Skeet surfin' can't you see?
Do you wanna come with me?
Grab your board, run to the beach
Skeet surfin' it's a lot of fun
