147. "One Way or Another ("Snoops" Theme Song)" by Blondie

The fact that this song is subtitled "("Snoops" Theme Song)" for all eternity should be an object lesson to somebody. Does anyone remember what "Snoops" even was? Well, I do, oddly, because it had Gina Gershon on it, which was, at the time, reason enough, but it wasn't any good and didn't last more then four or five episodes, so it's really silly to have it appended to the name of a far more immortal song. Maybe that's a "shame on you" to Debbie and the boys, but not really. It's more like a shame on corporate culture type thing, but that's a waste of time, as corporate culture naturally possesses no shame, begging the question of how it actually manages to get more shameless daily. These are the imponderables on my street.

So I tried to deliver a version of this which is, if anything, more true to the idea of the tune than the original performance of it. In a way, I'm just making it more obvious. In another way, really, if you're not just a little creeped out by it, I worry about your instinct for self-preservation.
