wendys-menu.jpgNews about a Wendy’s-sponsored song contest hits the mailbag: “The only catch is that to be considered, a song has to feature sounds from a Wendy’s kitchen–burgers cooking, bacon sizzling, lettuce tearing, etc.” Matthew Herbert, call your lawyer. [This Is My Burger]

    Beat me to the Herbert reference, Maura. Nice one. Do you have “The Mechanics of Destruction?” So good. Oh, so good.

    In similar news, PETA is sponsoring a song contest of its own. To be considered, your song must use sounds from the inside of cattle slaughterhouses and chicken ranches. Courtney Love is expected to submit the winning entry with a new acapella number.

    @loudersoft: You’ve never heard “Meat Is Murder” by The Smiths, have you.

    @Hyman Decent: A great band, song, and album. I have faith in Courtney, I think she can outdo the natural slaughterhouse sounds used in that song.

    I have long felt that the noise Marc Bolan makes in “Bang a Gong (Get it On)” to punctuate that dramatic lull during the last break before the last chorus — those of you who know what I mean, you know what I mean, it’s not a word, and it’s not really sung, it’s just a noise, inhuman but seemingly uttered by one…

    It sounds like a poor little cockroach unwittingly skittering to its crisp oily death in a deep fryer. To me, anyway.
