It’s Official: has officially named an official, unofficial theme song, pending approval, of course, by the Official Council of Elders.  

Yes, yes, we realize that isn’t even officially up and running yet.  So why designate an official, unofficial theme song at this point?  Well, sometimes putting the cart before the horse, or perhaps in this case the ass, is warranted (sorry).

Unfortunately we were unable to track down the “original” version/video for this classic, but, nevertheless,  we think this clip does it adequate justice.  In the end, how can one really go wrong with a performance that includes every bassist in the known universe?

    Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and…
    Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
    Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
    Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it’s louder? Is it any louder?
    Nigel Tufnel: Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
    Marty DiBergi: I don’t know.
    Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
    Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
    Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
    Marty DiBergi: Why don’t you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
    Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

    Intro: Nigel playing a soft, flowing song on the piano.
    Rob Reiner:  It’s pretty.
    Nigel:  Yeah I like it. Just been fooling about with it for a few months now. Very delicate.
    Rob Reiner:  It’s a bit of a departure from the kind of thing you normally play.
    Nigel:  Yeah well its part of a trilogy really, musical trilogy that I’m doing in D minor, which I always find is really the saddest of all keys. Really, I don’t know why but it makes people weep instantly.
    Nigel singing softly:  Baa Baaa
    —That’s the horn part.
    Rob Reiner:  Yeah, its very pretty.
    Nigel continuing to sing:  Baaa, Baaaa
    —Yeah, just simple lines intertwining. You know, very much like I’m really influenced by Mozart and Bach and its sort of in between those. Really, its like a Maach piece really.
    Rob Reiner: What do you call this?
    Nigel: Oh this piece is called uh, Lick My Love Pump.
    Rob Reiner: Hmm
