I was in the car waiting for the rain to ease off when "living by numbers" came on the radio.

This is a real geocaching song that was sent to me by a US cacher who kind of franchised one of my puzzle caches. It's not bad!

Well Dave my top three might be:

 

1) Too Shy - too ask for help

2) Hang On Now - and the cache will be relaesed

3) Never Ending Story - or should that be Never Ending at Sea Story - (appoligies to JollyJax)

 

all by Kajchegoogoo, of course. And there's that Pretenders one, how does it go:

 

Got Cache in pocket

Gota log here, if ya wana use it

Twas archived, but lets get inventive

Why dontcha, ask me, ask me, if that's a Cache in my pocket

 

... or something like that, it was a big hit in Florida :o

:o Love that Pretenders song!

 

Badly Drawn Boy sound as if they have experienced much geocaching, judging by some of their songs:

 

"Fall in a River", "Cause a Rockslide", "Walking out of Stride", "Above you, Below Me", "I need a Sign", and finally, "It came from the Ground". Sounds like a story we could all tell :ph34r:

Does poetry count Dave. Since the Wombles drew my attention to Race The Clock I've been plagued by this little number by Emily Dickenson:

 

A cache went up my mind to-day

That I have had before,

But did not finish,--some way back,

I could not fix the year,

 

Nor where it went, nor why it came

The second time to me,

Nor definitely what it was,

Have I the art to say.

 

But somewhere in my soul, I know

I've met the thing before;

It just reminded me--'t was all--

And came my way no more.

 

With appolgies to the Amherst bard, but to Greatuncle Chippenham let me just say that its theme tune could be the Eurythmics "A Thorn in my Side" and of it, as Kylie would say "Can't get you out of my mind". :ph34r::o:)

With apology to: Pete Seeger - LITTLE BOXES

 

Little boxes on the hillside

Little boxes full of ticky-tacky

Little boxes, little boxes,

Little boxes all the same

There's the green one and the pink one

And the blue one and the yellow one

And they're all full of ticky-tacky

And they all look just the same

 

And the people in the houses

All go to the co-ordinates

And they all look for boxes

Little boxes all the same

And there's doctors, and there’s lawyers

And business executives

And they all look for boxes

And they all look just the same

 

And they all search on the golf course

And follow there initiative

And they all have pretty children

And the children go to school

And the children go to cito camp

And then to the university

And they all go looking for boxes

And they all come out the same

 

And the boys go into business,

And marry and raise a family,

An they all go searhing for boxes,

Little boxes all the same,

There's a green one and a pink one,

And a blue one and a yellow one,

And they're all full of ticky-tacky,

And they all look just the same.

Disused railway caches - 'I Walk the Line' by Johnny Cache :ph34r::o

Share this post

Now is probably a good time to post a link to American humourist Dave Barry's seminal work "The Tupperware Blues" (which actually has a very entertaining story behind it).

 

Rather oddly though, the song doesn't mention using Tupperware as a container for geocaches - it seems obsessed with some strange idea that it's main purpose in life is for storing food. Personally I don't think that'll catch on. :ph34r:

 

Edit - learn to spell, idiot child.

"I think we're alone now,

there doesn't seem to be any one around.

I think we're alone now,

Quick - open up the cache and see what we've found"

Disused railway caches - 'I Walk the Line' by Johnny Cache :ph34r::o

 

Walk the line is a song I often sing to myself while caching... It started after doing a cache by a prolific Cheshire Puzzle cache setter... we knew we had most of the coords right, but couldn't get the last number... so we mentally sketched out the line of best fit and "walked the line."

 

Trouble was ... we spent 2 daysd walking the line - back and forth, back and forth, and we didn't find it til we had a eueka moment!!

Just heading off to get off a Nelson, so cheering my self up with thoughts of night caching to the chirpy sounds of Robert Smith. Ah, takes you back to heady student days - and what a base line (eat your heart out Jack White). A Forest by The Cure:

 

Come closer and see

See into the trees

Find the cache

While you can

Come closer and see

See into the dark

Just follow your etrex

Just follow your etrex

 

I hear a voice

Calling my name

The sound is deep

In the dark

Could be ftf

And start to run

Into the trees

into the trees

 

Suddenly I stop

But I know it's too late

I'm lost in a forest

All alone

The cache was never there

It's always the same

I'm running towards nothing

Muggled and again and again and again

 

Must just head up to the attic and dig out Seventeen Seconds on vinyl. :D

In our case and the amount of times we have been lost with tomtom (dumdum) I think "Road to nowhere" would be appropriate.
