Drudge Catches Cowbell Fever; Prognosis Grim

What's this? A particularly nasty triple-dose of cowbell hits Matt Drudge right in his upper left-hand corner:

* Consumer prices/inflation down.

* Factory utilization now the highest since April 2001.

* And housing starts surge by 8.3%.

You'd better put some penicillin on that, Drudge. Better yet, just let the Cowbell Fever spread and fester, and succumb to its madness.

Triple-sized cowbell for triple cowbell news:

Christopher Walken is also a longtime Cowbell Fever Survivor.

Update: Senator Philabuster thinks it would be a good idea to list the top ten cowbell songs of all time. I think it's a good idea too, but apart from Don't Fear the Reaper and Theme From Simon & Simon, I don't really know too many cowbell-friendly songs.

If you know some cowbell-intensive tunes, let me know in the comments below. I'll put them into some sort of definitive list when I have at least ten good ones.

One point: The songs should be fairly well known; try not to be too obscurist. Don't nominate a bootleg studio alternate master of The Band in which a microphone is accidentally dropped on to an unused cowbell, nor a Japanese import disco remix of Rush's Red Barcetta in which an "electronic cowbell-like effect" can be heard above the screech of Godzilla's radioactive roar.

I mean, this isn't A Small Victory. Maybe there is some good cowbell on that Marshall Tucker Band cover of Faith No More's Epic, but seriously, have more than eight people heard it?

Actually, you can nominate songs like that all you like. They're just not going to make it to the list.

Country songs are sort of obscure to me, but I'll gladly put a couple of them on the list. I probably will just have to take your word for it that they do in fact contain prominent cowbell.

Anyway, if you want to help out, thanks. It's appreciated.
