Title: Willie Nelson WAS a friend - He is now off the playlist!
Post by: SFEnnisSF on November 04, 2009, 12:44:39 am
As discussed here:  http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,36828.0.html (http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,36828.0.html)

and here:  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0388795/board/flat/149618807 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0388795/board/flat/149618807)

After much thought about this, I have finally decided to remove all of Willie Nelson's songs, including the one from the movie, off of the playlist for Brokeback Radio.  



And when the movie is shown in a theatre again and I am there, when *his* song comes on during the credits, I will yell FUCK YOU WILLIE NELSON!  >:(

Heya Eric,

I just discovered this Willie Nelson issue because of your thread here.  I'd missed the older one in circulation here at BetterMost somehow until now.  This really is disappointing.  And, I support your decision to remove Willie Nelson from Brokeback Radio.  If he's going to make fun of BBM, he really shouldn't be represented on a BBM platform like that.

I'm shocked and saddened that he'd record something like that. :(

Way to go, Eric! I also fully support your decision to pull him OFF the playlist. >:(

Willie Nelson would probably sell his own MOTHER up the river for a dollar and a beer.

F*ck him.

I usually skip over him whenever I listen to the soundtrack. 

Listen to this instead:

OMG, I just listened to that song on YouTube. What's the hell's the image that stays on the screen during the video?  It looks like a blood-spattered wall (how appropriate!).

Every time I watch BBM from here on out, either on DVD or in a theatre, I plan to boo when WN's song plays at the end.  It gives a whole new meaning to the past tense in the song title ('well he was a friend of mine -- or so I thought....")

Or just turn it off. That;s what I plan to do. Once the final scene fades I'll turn it off. I don't want to hear that shit anymore. Or any of his other songs either.
Title: Need a new soundtrack!

And now, I think it is time to go to the next step. We need a new soundtrack! The old soundtrack had missing songs, put too much emphasis on the opening theme, and, worst of all, contains the wrong version of "He was a friend of mine"! Will you take this on, friend ERic (after the Paisley concert, of course)?!?!

Take it on how?  I'm already broadcasting our own wonderful sountrack to the film right here:
