This One's For You, Angus Wynne
Let the fun surround you. Seriously. Do it now. All ya gotta do is go to the great WMFU's blog, where today them fine folks from New Joizy have, for whatever reason, posted three cuts from a 1967 giveaway album that serves as both a guide to Six Flags Over Texas and as a soundtrack to your visit. I dunno how much patience you'll have for the seven-and-a-half minute intro to the park, "The Sound of Fun Surrounds You," but dear Sweet Baby Jesus, I will not get the "Six Flags March" out of my head for the rest of the day. And that "Six Flags Song" goes right on the iPod: "Let's go have a holiday where everyone likes to play/Six Flags Over Texas/Six Flags Over Texas." And...horn solo. --Robert Wilonsky
