I Wrote an Entrecard Song

NEXT DROP!


The readers of this blog (Hi! I love you!) fall into four groups:

  1. People who participate in the Entrecard blogging network but don’t know the song “My My Metrocard”
  2. People who know the song “My My Metrocard” but don’t know about Entrecard
  3. People who participate in Entrecard AND know “My My Metrocard”
  4. People who have never heard of Entrecard or “My My Metrocard”

If you belong to group 2 or 4, here’s a brief explanation of Entrecard.

If you belong to group 1 or 4, “My My Metrocard” is a catchy song by riot grrrl band Le Tigre.

All groups! Please stay with me!

First, here are some of the lyrics to “My My Metrocard”:

Off the pillow and into the air
I’m ready ’cause it’s my day
Situation: it’s all possible
Everything is going my way

My My Metrocard
My My Metrocard
My My Metrocard
Think I’ll go a little, but then I go far

NEXT STOP!
Atlantic Avenue
NEXT STOP!
Christopher Street
NEXT STOP!
Transfer to the
NEXT STOP!
A,C, or E

Are you starting to see where I’m going with this? YES! I wrote a song called “My My Entrecard“—with the generous contribution of the original tune (Hi, Le Tigre! Thanks!).

Take a listen to the song. Feel free to pogo in your underwear, as I so often do. (Warning: This song contains the “F” word, but it’s totally necessary to the theme of sticking it to the man, man.)

My Entrecard song is dedicated to my top Entrecard droppers. Is group 2 still with me? Group 1, are you there?

Please, won’t you enjoy my tribute? Once you know the tune, it’s easy to sing along. (No “F” words in my version).

My, My Entrecard

Off my dashboard and through my inbox
I’m ready to drop a bunch
300: it’s all possible
If I blow off work and skip lunch

My My Entrecard
My My Entrecard
My My Entrecard
Think I’ll drop a few, but I’m gonna drop more

Oh crap!

My My Entrecard
My My Entrecard
My My Entrecard
Think I’ll drop a few, but I’m gonna drop more

  • Groups 1 and 3: Why not steal this idea and show your appreciation for your top Entrecard droppers?
  • Group 2: Why not join Entrecard so you can get in on the fun?
  • Group 4: I hope you leave today feeling somewhat enlightened and entertained.
  • Everybody: POGO!!!

    This stop! Awesome post! I love what you did with this. I’m jamming out to the Metrocard tune while reading your version. I did lose a cat when I clicked play, though. But she’s fine. In fact, she’s in the next room doin’ the pogo.

    I’m off to drop!!! My, my entrecard…my, my entrecard! I’ll be singing that all day. Very fun!

    Whoa! I have never been in a song before! I feel real lucky. Thanks ever so much. I have not been able to visit as much as usual since my Mommie is still out of town and I am not really supposed to be on the computer by myself.

    Now I am going to go dance all around!

    Huh. I think I have my own group. I’ve heard or heard of the song, but I have heard of Entrecard, I just don’t participate because I don’t have a blog and I’m only 12.
    My group:

    I’m learning new pop culture refrences every day so I can understand what some people blog about. =)

    See? My group gets a smiley face. =)

  6. 6 Athena

    Hahahahaha I LOVE it! I cant believe I got a shout out! In a SONG! I feel famous!! What a great idea :) Now I’m off to sing and drop :)

  7. 7 Brownie

    Yep, I’m in group one too. I didn’t knew what “metrocard” means, sorry, my spanish :P

    But, YOU WROTE A COOL SONG! GREAT! :D

    Ha! That’s the funniest thing i’ve read in a long time, it’s worth putting underwear on just to jump around to it! :)

    Claire’s last blog post..U comment, I follow

    :::jumping up and down on my pretty white toes:::

    Woo-hoo-hoo! That was fun!
    I’ve never heard of Le Tiger though
    I come under number one!
    Because I’m a fan of Entrocard

    My My Entrecard
    My My Entrecard
    My My Entrecard
    Got a sore finger, but I’m gonna drop more

    Babs – beetle’s last blog post..Another painfull experience!

    Jaffer: WOO! Way to stick it to the man!

    Kathy: This stop! Pogo, Stinky! I’m glad you like it. It’s a great song, and every time I hear it, I think ” . . . Entrecard”!

    chat blanc: YAY for EC’ers! I could’ve made the song a lot longer (“NEXT STOP!” ad infinitum) but decided to stick with the top droppers. But I love all EC’ers equally!

    Daisy the Curly Cat: Daisy! I’m so flattered that you would risk getting in trouble just to comment! I also can’t believe you’ve never been in a song before. I would think there are a lot of songs devoted to you. Enjoy your dancing all around!

    Regan: Mad propzzz to your very own unique group. And smiley faces all around! :)

    Athena: I know! Isn’t it exciting?! Singing and dropping: what better way to spend a weekend?

    Brownie: YES! I WROTE A COOL SONG! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never heard the original. Just start dancing.

    Claire: HA! If I’ve encouraged just one person out there to put some underwear on, it’s all been worth it.

    Luxor: Ooh! That was a lovely twirl. I think this post is most fun for members of group 1 or 3, but I hope everyone will enjoy it.

    Babs – beetle: Atta girl, Babs! You got it!

  12. 12 Tim

    Cool song, both versions. You can’t suck me in to Entrecard, tho. I’m pretty busy already. One more straw might break my camel’s back!

    Tim’s last blog post..Mmmm…very tasty

  13. 13 Another Kathy

    I just joined Entrecard. Your tribute scares me a little.
    I can picture myself spending all day on there.

    I know what a Metro Card is; I know what Entrecard is, I DID NOT have to know who Le Tigre is/was (Oh I hope they are a “was”) – but you are clever and funny and weird – as always {{hugs}}

  16. 16 Meg

    I just learned about Entrecard (from Wit’s Bitch). I just learned the name for those silly smiley emoticons from Of Cabbages and Kings, and now I know about a Metro Card. This is a good week for a technotard like me.

    OMG, you are are ridiculous and insane and I absolutely love it!!! Awesome blog. Awesome!

    Elisa’s last blog post..Ah, the pride in shameless self-promotion

  18. 18 Monique

    After having coldplay in my head ALL day I was looking forward to hearing something else.

    Now, the entrecard song is stuck in my head… no matter what I play!

    Oh that was way too complex. Only two groups in future please, my little brain can’t take it. Great song, btw.

    OMG that song is HILARIOUS! LOL

    I fall into group 4. I don’t have a blog, but live vicariously thru those who do. I also want to thank you for introducing new tunes to my world. You’re my first stop now before I run over to itunes. this song has a B-52s flavor. Pogo away, indeed, especially in my underwear!

  22. 22 JD

    Tim: I don’t want to break your camel’s back, believe me. Just enjoy the songs and the cute Entrecard pictures. That’s all I ask!

    Another Kathy: Wheee! There’s Another Kathy! That can only be good. Don’t be scared by my scary tribute. Entrecard is definitely addictive, but it’s a great community and lots of fun. Welcome!

    Margaret: Thank you! Like I said, I love ALL my EC’ers, but the top droppers deserved a li’l somethin’ extra.

    Broadwaymatron: Aw! {{HUGS}} right back atchya. I’m pretty sure Le Tigre is a “was.” I really don’t know much else about them, but I do love that song. It’s not for everybody, tho.

    Meg: You are indeed learning much! Entrecard is fun, but I’m not trying to push it on anyone. I just had to get that song out of my head and onto my blog.

    Elisa: YAY! Thank you! Ridiculous and insane are two of my favorite adjectives. Glad you stopped by, and hope you will keep coming back for more ridiculosity and insanitation.

    Monique: It’s a very sticky song, I’ll warn you. It’s also a great workout song.

    Chris Wood: I know it was a little complicated. I tried to break it down. Next time, I promise: two groups. And I’ll include a Venn diagram. Glad you liked the song!

    Corrina: Woo! Glad you like it. I know you’ll be singing it all weekend, right?

    ann of the shampoo bag: Oh, yes. The underwear is such an important part. Glad you like it. And I consider you an honorary member of all groups, as you are indeed an honorary blogger.

  23. 23 Jeff

    Excellent! You really nailed it! Totally catchy.

    But I’m with Tim. Kathy tried to lure me in too but I refuse to even look at it because I know I’ll want to do it and then I’ll get all stressed out because I won’t have the time to commit to it and wah wah wah.

    Jeff’s last blog post..Happy, um… Labor Day?

  24. 24 Maureen

    Oh noes. I have been able to resist the temptation of even learning what Entrecard is… so far.

    You have made me curious.

    That can’t be good, can it?

    Hilarious BTW.

    Maureen’s last blog post..Set The Wayback Machine to 1982 Sherman

    Jeff: Oh, boo-hoo! Poor Jeff is sooooo busy! Much more busy and important than the rest of us schmucks, who have PLENTY of time to drop cards all day. (takes a few gulps of triple espresso) Jeff! My man. No worries. Entrecard isn’t for everyone. Have a great day!

    Maureen: Curiosity is ALWAYS good. I think. Well, even if you do resist, you can still sing the song.

  26. 26 Michelle Gartner

    Entrecarde is addictive but I will not be singing about it or pogoing in my underwear- my underwires could not handle all my middle aged bounce… not to mention the trauma on my kids.

    Michelle Gartner’s last blog post..There is a reason they call it “Going Postal…” observations on eBay, selling used junk, and postal workers.

  27. 27 JD

    Michelle Gartner: I don’t want to traumatize your kids. For now, just hum along and bop your head.

  28. 28 Natural

    i’m sorry JD, i’m going to need you to sing this one. get in the recording studio and starting singing, no you have to sang…not sing, but sang. i’ll be waiting in walmart in the music section for it to appear.

    okay now it’s in the right place. :) well actually i’m afraid to look, i’ll just assume i pasted this in the right post.

    Natural’s last blog post..Here’s To You…and Me

  29. 29 JD

    Natural: I am up for this challenge! Man, I am going to SANG the butt out of this! I’m not sure WalMart will be the appropriate vendor, tho. Aren’t they kind of picky about profanity?

  30. 30 Paul Baines

    What a hilarious post! I have to admit my songwriting days are wel and truly behind me but I’d love to see someone add a verse about how my baby (entrecard) sold me to the man referring to the new paid ads grrr. I’ve even started a one man protest and dropped my widgets although I can see there’s no stopping the greed now :/

    Paul Baines’s last blog post..Banksy Tour Of London R.I.P

  31. 31 JD

    Paul Baines:Hey, thanks! It’s hard to work up the same enthusiasm to write an Entrecard song now. My widgie’s day’s are numbered.

  32. 32 raj

    I think i belong to the first group, I don’t really know the song, even there’s a lyrics above i still don’t know how to sing it.
