The Lyrics

My next door neighbors play techno music really loud all the time. Last verse is what will hopefully happen.
Hey, turn it off, right now

Yeah, I can hear your techno music, why don't you like rock & roll bands?
I really have a problem, yeah, that's some music I can't stand
I live in a duplex, yeah, so I hear that beat all of the time
It's just always the same thing, (yes it is) my neighbors who just moved here are slime

I hear them dancin' and eatin' and singin' while they're sleepin'
It's way too loud for me, somebody turned around and shouted

Turn that techno music off now
You've been playin' it all night
Turn that techno music off now
Put down that cd and turn that techno music off , goodbye!
(hey, hey) off , goodbye! yeah, yeah

Well, the neighbors couldn't hear that, Yeah, now I know that they are out of their minds
They had it really blasting, (How could they) Me and the rest, we've been too kind
We neighbors will keep fightin', we'll call the cops on them every night(That's what we'll do)
I said, "I must wear earplugs" (Got to wear them) The pizza guy stood there so much time

I hear them dancin' and eatin' and singin' while they're sleepin'
It's way too loud for me, somebody turned around and shouted

Turn that techno music off now
You've been playin' it all night
Turn that techno music off now
Put down that cd and turn that techno music off , goodbye!
Off, goodbye! (Yeah) Wow, off, goodbye!

(Come on- turn off that real stinky techno music)

(Now we got something) The neighbors turned it right down, didn't like those cops comin'
Their place no longer noisy, now things are like the way that they've been
Oh yeah, now is so much better, (It's so much better) I enjoy silence every day
Hope I'll never hear that beatin' (Hope I won't) Hope that they learned their lesson, I say

I heard them dancin' and eatin' and singin' while they're sleepin'
Was way too loud for me, somebody turned around and shouted

Turn that techno music off now
You've been playin' it all night
Turn that techno music off now
Put down that cd and turn that techno music off , goodbye!
Off, goodbye!, oh, off, goodbye!

(They shouted, Turn that techno music) Turn that techno music
(Turn that techno music) Just turn it off, Turn that techno music
(Turn that techno music) Turn that techno music
(Turn that techno music) Wanna turn it off right now?

Turn that techno music off now
You've been playin' it all night, yeah

Turn that techno music off now
You've been playin' it all night

Turn that techno music off now
You've been playin' it all night, yeah

555, and here's what to do: when they're really BLASTING their stereo, go down to the building's main power switch, pull the switch "OFF", count to 3, then throw the swtich back "ON". When my wife and I lived in an apartment in Boston, there was a loud party on the floor above us, and our across-the-hall neighbor warned us to turn off appliances in our unit before he pulled the main power off-and-on. We did, and then we watched our neighbor do what I described above. When he pulled the power-switch to "OFF", the lights went out, the blasting stereo upstairs went suddenly silent, and we started hearing yells of surprise and dismay from above. When the power-switch went back "ON", the lights came back --- but the stereo did not --- it's hard to pump music through speakers blow-out by a power-surge.

A-freakin'-men! Eminem ALMOST got it right: Nobody SHOULD listen to techno.

(SOTM) I especially loathe techno remixes of songs. 16 bars of the same beat, minor adjustment, 16 bars of that beat, minor adjustment... Apparently it's some sort of primal sexual thing to do with repetitive rhythms i ndancing or something. Your view of the matter is much more accurate, though.

(SOTM) Funny stuff here. I've blasted my own techno music late at night myself, so anyone within my 5-mile radius knows what you're talking about.

SOTM - Some techno is really good though, I have a whole lot of songs by the band Astral Projection on my jogging-with-music playlist. Haven't been bitten by dogs once during running since I started with that. :-)

This is very good! I can't believe I missed it a month ago. There have been times that I could relate to this, given that I've lived in apartments and had to deal with neighbors playing loud music. Anyway, here's another perfect 5-5-5 vote for such good material! ;)

Nice job, Larry. Techno isn't music, it's a pharmaceutical accessory. I recently went on a camping trip and had neighbors that played loud techno literally all night every night. I tell you what - once you learn to sleep through THAT, you can sleep through ANYTHING. At least it was just a camping trip - if I shared a duplex with people like that, I'd wait until they were asleep (starting at, say, 9 AM) and turn Michael Bolton on full-blast. On repeat. And leave.
