Does Geocaching Have A Theme Song?


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

So many other sports have songs that are their "anthem" like baseball has Take me out to the Ball Game and hockey has the Silver Cup song etc.

 

What could be the theme song for geocaching? Does anyone have the talent to write and arrange one or could this be a group project?

 

I tried to alter the old GI Joe theme song to suit the purpose. You know, instead of "G.I. Joe" it's "G.E.O." and so forth.

 

Lyrics to rearrange, for those who want to give it a shot:

GI Joe

 

 

He'll fight for freedom wherever there is trouble,

G.I. Joe is there!

 

 

G.I. Joe...

A Real American Hero

G.I. Joe is there.

 

 

Its G.I. Joe against Cobra and Destro,

Fighting to save the day.

He never gives up, he's always there,

Fighting for freedom over land and air.

 

 

G.I. Joe...

A Real American Hero

G.I. Joe is there.

 

 

(spoken)

G.I. Joe is the codename for America's daring, highly trained, special mission force.

Its purpose: To defend human freedom against Cobra, a ruthless, terrorist organization determined to rule the world.

 

 

He never gives up, he'll stay till the fights won -

G.I. Joe will dare.

 

 

G.I. Joe...

A Real American Hero

G.I. Joe!

 

As you can see, these lyrics are ripe for altering into geo-relative terms. Feel free to post your suggestions here, or E-mail me at wneilson@tds.net if you feel they're too cheesy to air in public. I haven't found a place where you can download the song for free, but there's a variety of ways you can get it from this site cheap. No music collection is complete without the GI Joe theme, mind you.

 

If anyone wants to take a crack at composing something of their own, I'd really like to hear it. I love singing relevent songs while doing tasks. I almost took a job on a railroad, just to be able to sing, "I've been working on the railroad" and mean it.

 

Corny?? Who said that? I could have sworn I heard someone mutter, "Corny?" Nah, impossible.

On the road again

Just can't wait to get on the road again

The life I love is makin' music with my friends

And I can't wait to get on the road again

On the road again

Goin' places that I've never been

Seein' things that I may never see again,

And I can't wait to get on the road again.

Signal in the Sky huh,BrianSnat? It sounds very appropriate. I'll have to find a place to listen to it.

 

Ring Wing Wacko has something with lunatics on the grass.

 

The Jester knows all about meteorological events in Western Washington. Still, I prefer "Singing in the Rain," while I cache in Washington. It's more upbeat, you know?

 

I'm singing in the rain

Just singing in the rain

What a glorious feeling

I'm happy again

I'm laughing at clouds

So dark up above

The sun's in my heart

And I'm ready for love

For love

Let the stormy clouds chase

Everyone from the place

Come on with the rain

I've a smile on my face

I'll walk down the lane

With a happy refrain

Singing, singing in the rain

In the rain.

 

La...

 

I'm singing in the rain

Just singing in the rain

What a glorious feeling

I'm happy again

I walk down the lane

With a happy refrain

I'm singing, singing in the rain

In the rain

In the rain

 

Jeff35080 loves one of my favorite songs too! Did you ever see that Star Trek: The Next Generation show where some of the crew was teleported back in time (yeah, I know, that happened every other episode) and met the Father of Warp Drive? Before he made his maiden voyage at warp speed he almost aborted the mission because he couldn't find his tape. When he did, we were all treated to the blaring strains of Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride." I loved it.

 

Earthdog Patrick likes Steppenwolf too, whereas Lone Duck has more in common with the seven dwarves. :(

 

And there's PrettynWitty with her Willie Nelson songs. :D Good fun!

 

Thanks for giving me so much food for thought, folks. If I'd realized this subject was a dead horse, I would not have started it. I'm up to speed now, or as close to speed as I get.

I played this song in camp at the Texas Challenge. Everyone agreed that it was a great geocaching song.

 

All My Life

 

by Foo Fighters

 

 

All my life I've been searching for something

 

something never comes never leads to nothing

 

nothing satisfies but I'm getting close

 

closer to the prize at the end of the rope

 

all night long I dream of the day

 

when it comes around and it's taken away

 

leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most

 

feel it come to life when I see your ghost

 

calm down don't you resist

 

you've such a delicate wrist

 

and if I give it a twist

 

something to hold when I lose my grip

 

will I find something in there

 

to give me just what I need

 

another reason to bleed

 

one by one hidden up my sleeve

 

 

 

Don't let it go to waste, I love it but I hate the taste

 

weight keep pinning me down

 

will I find a believer

 

another one who believes

 

another one to deceive

 

over and over down on my knees

 

if I get any closer

 

and if you open up wide

 

and if you let me inside

 

on and on I've got nothing to hide

 

then I'm done done on to the next one

 

done and I'm done and I'm on to the next

This is my theme song for the Summer, and I think that it could work for geocaching as well.

 

I'm Not Coming In

by Stuart Hill

 

Sun's up, I hit the floor

Shoes tied, I'm out the door

Is this a clean shirt?

I think it was one yesterday

 

Free day, I'm on the phone

No plans, I got the cell on

I call the boys up

Spend a little time outside today

 

Never liked for you to hear where I gotta be

Never liked for you to be told what I gotta see

I like no commitment strollin' up around me

 

I'm not coming in anymore

Everything I want and need is just outside this door

I'm not coming in anymore

I've got too many friends on the outside

That don't include you

 

Go ahead and think all you might

All my friends and I ain't on the inside

All kinds of facts and probabilites

 

You say well I found a reason

I say well remember all the seasons

You scream with endless possiblities

 

Spend a lot of time trying to convince me

My friends have two strikes against me

Well I swing for the fences

So that must make strike three

That's fine by me

 

I'm not coming in anymore

Everything I want and need is just outside this door

I'm not coming in anymore

I've got too many friends on the outside

That don't include you

Don't include you

 

Nothing ever seems right

Like it does when I want to stop

Pain in the right speed, kick in the right bite

I like things familiar

And I don't belong here

Don't belong here

 

I'm not coming in anymore

Everything I want and need is just outside this door

I'm not coming in anymore

I've got too many friends on the outside

The playing's on the outside

It don't include you

 

Not coming in

Not coming in

Not getting back no more

No more........

Some of my favorite caching songs have come from the strangest places. Right now, I'm kinda big on Wandering Star from Paint your Wagon:

*************

BORN UNDER A WANDERIN' STAR

 

I was born under a wanderin' star.

I was born under a wanderin' star.

 

Wheels are made for rollin', mules are made to pack.

I've never seen a site that didn't look better lookin' back.

 

I was born under a wanderin' star.

 

Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry.

Snow can burn your eyes but only people make you cry.

Home is made for comin' from, for dreams of goin' to.

Which with any luck will never come true.

 

I was born under a wanderin' star.

I was born under a wanderin' star.

 

Do I know where hell is, hell is in hell-o.

Heaven is good-bye forever it's time for me to go.

 

I was born under a wanderin' star, a wanderin', wanderin' star.

 

Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry.

Snow can burn your eyes but only people make you cry.

Home is made for comin' from, for dreams of goin' to.

Which with any luck will never come true.

 

I was born under a wanderin' star.

I was born under a wanderin' star.

 

When I get to heaven tie me to a tree.

Or I'll begin to roam and soon you'll know where I will be.

 

I was born under a wanderin' star.

A wanderin', wanderin' star.

****************************

I just change Roam to Geocache and call it good.

Also, Movin right along by the Muppets is great and upbeat, as is U2's Still haven't found what I'm looking for.

 

But this stanza from the theme song to Paint your Wagon is my favorite:

 

When am I goin'?

I don't know

Where am I headin'?

I ain't certain

All that I know

Is I am on my way

 

Hope you are having fun with the music!

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

 

The lunatic is on the grass

The lunatic is on the grass

Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs

Got to keep the loonies on the path

The lunatic is in the hall.

The lunatics are in my hall.

The paper holds their folded faces to the floor,

and everyday the paper boy brings more.

This one always comes to mind for me

 

"Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles

And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go."

 

OR my other vote is for;

 

Everybody's building ships and boats

Some are building monuments, others are jotting down notes

Everybody's in despair, every girl and boy

But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here

Everybody's gonna jump for joy

;) Sounds like what I did yesterday! Glad I'm not the only one in here old enough to remember that one!

I love that song!

"....and when they lit the powder off that gator lost it's mind..."

 

-Jennifer

Ok, how many people now have that song running through their head and can't get rid of it? I know I do. ;)

 

We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin.

There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.

We fired once more and they began to runnin' on

down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
