Days until the Death Race: 3
Hours slept last night: 7

The soundtrack for the next few days…

… PACKING FOR THE DEATH RACE

1. Bare Necessities (The Jungle Book)

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

.

… PLANNING THE DEATH RACE STRATEGY

2. Remember The Name by Fort Minor

This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name

… TRYING TO EXPLAIN THE DEATH RACE TO A COWORKER

3. You Can’t Bring Me Down by Suicidal Tendencies

Who the hell you calling crazy? You wouldn’t know what crazy was
If Charles Manson was eating fruit loops on your front porch….

Just cause you don’t understand what’s going on don’t mean it don’t make no sense
And just cause you don’t like it, don’t mean it ain’t no good
And let me tell you something;

Before you go taking a walk in my world
You better take a look at the real world
Cause this ain’t no Mister Roger’s Neighborhood

.

… LEAVING TORONTO

4. Highway to Hell by AC/DC

Don’t need reason, don’t need rhyme
Ain’t nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too
I’m on the highway to hell

.

… FULL CREW ON BOARD, DRIVING TO VERMONT

5. Eastbound And Down by Jerry Reed

East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’,
We’re gonna do what they say can’t be done.
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I’m east bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run.

… FRIDAY, 6AM TO 9AM, ARRIVING TO OFFICIAL RACE REGISTRATION

6. It’s Raining Men by The Weather Girls

It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah!
It’s Raining Men! Every Specimen!
Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean

… OFFICIAL RACE DEBRIEF

7. The Gambler by Kenny Rogers

You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.

Now Ev’ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
‘Cause ev’ry hand’s a winner and ev’ry hand’s a loser,
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.

.

… DEATH RACE VETERANS ARRIVE FASHIONABLY LATE

8. The Kids are Back by Twisted Sister

We got the lion in our heart
We’re not lookin’ for trouble, just for some fun
But we’re all ready if you wanna’ start
So just remember the
The kids are back, the kids are back
Oh, watch out, the kids are back

9. Uprising by Muse

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey Yo

Hot step, Murderous
I try to be courteous

Catch me workin’ on my bod
My Physique is my facade
I’m not just another braud

… MIKE KEARNS RUNS OUT OF FOOD 10 HOURS INTO THE RACE

11. Hungry by Rob Bailey*

*This one I’d like to designate the official theme of the race. It’s an awesome song.

I’m gonna carry this shit on my fuckin’ back. [2x]

I’ll sleep, when I’m dead, won’t even catch my breath.
And I know, the weight of, the world can’t crush my chest.
I’ll work ’till I’m dead, I’ll work ’till I’m dead.
I’ll work ’till I’m dead, and then I’ll do it all again.

Work’s in my blood and I kill ’cause I’m hungry.

… REPAIRING GEAR. CONVERSATION BETWEEN TWO RACERS

12. There’s A Hole in My Bucket

There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, a hole.
Then mend it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then mend it, dear Henry, dear Henry, mend it.

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone

14. If You’re Going Through Hell by Rodney Atkins

If you’re going through hell
Keep on going, don’t slow down
If you’re scared, don’t show it

Before the devil even knows you’re there

16. Walkin’ After Midnight by Patsy Cline

And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I’m lonesome as I can be
I go out walkin’
After midnight
Out in the starlight
Just hoping you may be
Somewhere walkin’
After midnight
Searching for me

.

… WHEN A FELLOW RACER QUITS

17. Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton

Don’t leave me in all this pain
Don’t leave me out in the rain
Come back and bring back my smile
Come and take these tears away
I need your arms to hold me now
The nights are so unkind

… FINISHING THE DEATH RACE

18. Enlightenment by Van Morrison

Chop that wood
Carry water
What’s the sound of one hand clapping
Enlightenment, don’t know what it is

Enlightenment. don’t know what it is
It’s up to you
Enlightenment. don’t know what it is
It’s up to you everyday
Enlightenment, don’t know what it is
It’s always up to you
Enlightenment, don’t know what it is
