Many of their fans are middle-aged, target consumers!

I'd like to see the Southpark game spoof the last ten previous acts...

Metallica would be a very good decision. They still today have many radio stations that play at 9pm, Mandatory Metallica. You sure as hell don't see a mandatory madonna due you.
Plus this is football, man this is a rough sport. What goes better than a rock band and football, oh yeah Prince orThe Black Eyed Peas.
But lets get real here, metallica wont be playing master of puppets or starting a slam dance event. They could put together a very good show.

I also really liked Tears for Fears and The Outfield and A-Ha and it took me a long time to really 'get' the Beatles, but I get it now. I dig Nirvana, but it wasn't until Cobain died that I got into them really. I'm sure there are others but not many.

It's ok, my brother. We are all going to pretend we didn't read that 'cause we like you and your Zoey pics

So now you've got me thinking...how awesome would it be...now, stay with me, because this is going to come from WAY out yonder...but it's perfect...and it would work...and people would LOVE it...

So, can you dig this? We SHARE the halftime gig with with Van Halen AND Huey Lewis. This way we give the 40 something rockers their Van Halen AND we give those looking for something a bit more tame some Huey Lewis. Only they aren't separate performances or anything like that. Oh NO Mr Hulka... So how 'bout this? I can see Dave and Huey doing a really excellent rendition of a News classic...like, say, "Working for a Living"...oh man they would be great together on a tune like that, but there are lots of those old News songs that would work...and then...Diamond Dave and Lewis can trade off parts to "Stay Frosty". Oh man it would be perfect!

So, the song would have to be about twice as long as it is on the record, but we can swing it. Huey Lewis with HIS band and some antics from Dave cover the first part...the acoustic part...brilliant...and so we add some instrumentation there because we want it to last...long enough so that we almost lull the audience into getting comfortable...then...

badda BING baby the lights go dark, then strobe, then Dave does one of his famous squeals and then bada BOOM Eddie and Alex and Wolfie dig right into the second half of the song...Dave and Lewis still sharing the stage and trading vocals...oh man the crowd is going effing nutso. It's American Rock N Roll baby...old school meets...well...old school...take THAT whipper snappers!

Oh man it's brilliant. You are brilliant Hulka. I'm telling you it would effing work baby!

I can't find the whole song on YouTube, but this is a preview that goes long enough to hear the transition...

Oh baby this would be the best show ever in the history of Super Bowls.


and can you just hear Lewis wailing away on his harmonica? Dudes...the people that rig up halftime need to give a brotha a ring. Me and Hulka could make 'em famous. LOL

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

LOL. Zooey digs A-Ha man.

What 'de hell you got against a-ha man? They inspired people...LOL


Edit: So I posted this girls video fully making fun of "it"...and maybe ever "her"...because I'm mean.

In fact she has several videos, that are...interesting...but ONE in particular about Zombies. I HIGHLY recommend ya'll head on over to the music forum and check it out.

After Madonna messed up, no surprise there, scrape all entertainers from the SB halftime show and really make it a show. Show singers , dancers, actors from Broadway plays.
Put that up.
Rent
42nd Street
Wicked
Anything fast.
Fast dancing and singing scenes.

The Saints are pushing to perhaps do something original. They'd like to have Jazz musicians throughout history from New Orleans perform at this years halftime show. It'll be a great change and it'll showcase the cities prestige music scene.
