Blog Barney Vs. TV Barney

by Ryan j Budke, posted Dec 28th 2005 10:06AM
For those of you that didn't know, Barney, from How I Met Your Mother, actually does have a blog. The writers He writes to it pretty frequently, most of the time twice a week, and whether they're show related or not, the posts are always quality. This past week, however, Barney and I are having a little dispute. As you'll remember, I put a lot of research into my post last week about Barney's "Get Psyched Mix" from the show; painstakingly copying all of the songs off of a blurry, handwritten cd from the episode, solely for your enjoyment. Then, Barney has to go and post an entirely different list of songs on his blog! So, while both take you to legendary heights of psyched-ness, we'd like you all to tell us which one you think is better.

Song lists and poll after the jump...
 
 Blog Barney's Get Psyched Mix:
1) YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME - Jonathan B. Jovi
2) THE HUMPTY DANCE - Digital Underground

5) THE TRANSFORMERS THEME SONG - O. Prime
6) YOU'RE THE BEST AROUND - Joe Esposito

don't see how the humpty dance, come sail away, the transformers theme song, high enough, Jessie's girl and change of heart from TV Barney's mix would get you psyched although dancing with myself, talk dirty to me and round and round from blog Barney's mix would get me psyched either but blog Barney outnumbers TV Barney 3 to 6 so as much as I would want the actual get psyched mix from the episode to get me psyched it's just a fact that it's not as good as the blog Barney's get psyched mix :/

Just saw the episode again, so I had to look for a track list so I could make my own. Looking through your comments though, I'd say most of you are either misguided or just modern-day retard punks. This is a perfectly fine compilation, one that does not need tainting by things like the NFL theme song or techno and rap remixes. However, I combined the two, but demand the 23 tracks. To rectify this situation, I have called upon Kansas and BTO, two bands and songs that follow the theme and era, to fill the gaps. It looks like this

1) YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME - Jonathan B. Jovi
2) I WANNA ROCK - Twisted Sister
3) THE HUMPTY DANCE - Digital Underground
4) CARRY ON WAYWARD SON - Kansas
5) COME SAIL AWAY - Stix
6) LICK IT UP - KISS
7) DON'T STOP BELIEVIN' - Journey
8) PARADISE CITY - GNR (Guns & Roses)
9) THE TRANSFORMERS THEME SONG - O. Prime
10) DANCING WITH MYSELF- Billy Idol
11) YOU'RE THE BEST AROUND - Joe Esposito
12) ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANE - The Scorpions
13) HIGH ENOUGH - Damn Yankees
14) PANAMA - Van Halen
15) JESSIE'S GIRL - Rick Springfield
16) TALK DIRTY TO ME - Poison
17) YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
18) THUNDERSTRUCK - AC/DC
19) HIP HOP HOORAY - Naughty by Nature
20) DR. FEELGOOD - Crue (Motley Crue)
21) CHANGE OF HEART - Tom Petty
22) ROUND AND ROUND - Ratt
23) RUN AWAY - Slade

Eat it.

The blog mix is more eclectic and comedic.... but the TV mix is definitely more "all rise". I say take the TV mix, add the heavy metal version of the transformers theme (the one from the original movie soundtrack), the Joe Esposito track, the Journey track, the Slade track, "MR. ROBOTO" from Styx instead of "Come Sail Away", "Baby Got Back" by sir Mix-A-Lot instead of either of the rap tracks, and THEN... oh, then.... THEN you REALLY get PSYCHED.

Well done!

I prefer the TV-Mix, but i would change it the way it was in the episode: BJ as the first song. That does rock most and its in line with the show.

The Mix from his blog is totally crappy.

so basically, take the TV mix, switch the order of "i wanna rock" and "you give love a bad name", subtract the AC/DC b/c they're not on itunes, add "don't stop believin" and "danger zone" and you have one LEGENDARY mix
