Our Top Ten Favorite Arigon Starr Songs;
"Junior Frybread" [Wind-up]
Aden: "One of my favorite songs of hers. It deals with one of my favorite foods...frybread."
"Apache A-Go-Go" [Wind-up]
Sina: "This song starts off Arigon's 'Wind-up' album, and provides a really great sense of what you're getting from this album. It's pop, it's happy, and just a lot of fun all around."
"Eugene Tooms is Dead" [Meet the Diva]
Aden: "Great song about a creepy guy from the X-files, here's a link of Mr. Eugene Tooms."
Sina: "This song is basically a 3-minute 'it's funny because it's true' joke. I think the line 'With fire in your eyes, you'll be snagging!' says it all."
"Monsters of the World Unite" [Meet the Diva]
Aden:"Hilarious song about what would happen if all the famous monsters unionized."
"Edith Keeler Must Die" [Backflip]
Sina: "'Edith Keeler' is a reference to the original Star Trek episode 'City on the Edge of Forever'. I don't want to give anything away, but I'll give you a hint of how it ends--there is something Edith Keeler MUST do...and she does it."
"Honor Me" [Wind-up]Things get awkward when we don't have this sign up.
Aden: "A song about how people "honor" Native Americans by the use of mascots.It is a clever political song."
"Please Do Not Touch the Indians" [The Red Road]
Sina: "Arigon discusses the portrayal of Native Americans in westerns...through a country song. The rhythm may be upbeat, but the lyrics remind us of the serious subject."
"The Red Road (Original Version)" [The Red Road]
Aden: "The song that started her one woman show, it is about a Native truck driver, which reminds me of my dad who is a Native truck driver."
"The Peltier Song (One Bright and Shining Morning)" [Wind-up]
Sina: "Of course, no semi-political list is complete without a Leonard Peltier song, and this one is on par with any."
