back to article What does Elon Musk really need? A personal theme tune, of course!

Weezer's former bassist has written a "theme tune" for Elon Musk. Why? He was feeling miserable, apparently. Matt Sharp, erstwhile plucker of fat strings for the pop-punk pack, penned the "mournful ode" to the Tesla gros fromage but then said it was "not a tribute to Musk", according to glossy Wired. "I was trying to get off …

      I know, right?

      What keeps reminding me of the age of that song is the fact it was bundled on the Win95 CD I had, to demonstrate the movie player feature.

      Buddy Holly was released in 1994?

      Technically, that was a re-release, he was first released by his mother in 1936.

        Re-re-release, since he was released by his father in 1935.

      To be fair, he didn't actually ask for this as far as I can tell.

      That said, I still agree with you. If the guy needs his own leitmotif, something along these lines would be appropriate...

    Personal themes - not all they cracked up to be

    I know, I know... Darth Vader's theme music approaches and everyone's blood turns to ice before the hulking black shape even looms into view. How intimidating! Great assist in dominating the galaxy!

    But think of the Christmas music that's inflicted on shopkeepers. They learn to hate those songs n a mere six weeks. Older musicians who get tired of that First Big Hit. Vader has ONE tune to get tired of. Behind the mask is, he sarcastically humming along? Has he made up humorously vulgar ditties to sing to his theme?

    Does it stop when he's trying to sleep? And on being preceded everywhere, if your minions always hear you coming they can run for cover, hide the weed, Alt-Tab the porn to the background and generally look evil (not innocent) when he stomps into the room. Of course any sort of performance venue is right out. Can you imagine a comedian trying to get laughs with that playing? Good luck.

    I imagine the Sith are working feverishly on a Force trick to let them temporarily change their themes so they can do surprise attacks.
