Update: The Washington Times 25th Bash For Less Important People

Earlier, we asked you to propose song ideas for the “Washington Times 25th Bash For Less Important People” (you’ll recall that the Times put a music survey online and the top 20 most suggested songs would be played throughout the evening).

Although we thought their online music survey was down, it was simply not accessible outside of their system.

Still you sent in plenty of song recommendations, which we reprint below (we left the really mean ones out):

“Moon River”


“Dancing in the Moonlight”

“Man in the Moon”

“Fly Me to the Moon”


“Bad Moon Rising”

“Dirty Laundry”

“Shine On Harvest Moon”

“Blue Moon”

“Moon Shadow”

“Harvest Moon”

“New Moon on Monday”

“Walking on the Moon”

“Bark at the Moon”

“Drunk on the Moon”

“Moon Song”


“Mississippi Moon”

“It’s Hip to Be Square”

Neil Young “Southern Man”

We also hear that, at the party, all of the Times’ cafeteria staff wore matching orange outfits to go along with paper’s “brighter, bolder” theme. Also, Times President Thomas McDevitt unveiled a “brighter, bolder” barbecue sauce and joked that the Times’ newest endeavour would be a restaurant.
