What is a Fuzzball?


  • One question I hear more than any other is What's a Fuzzball??" Allow me to explain:

    A Fuzzball is a 30-year-old fallen debutante who lives in Houston, TX with a bossy dog and an even bossier parrot who she SWEARS is the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    A Fuzzball prefers animals to most people, because people can really suck sometimes.

    A Fuzzball loves music, ALL music ALL of the time. If she's not listening to it, then she's singing it.

    A Fuzzball has a mad love for all things British, especially their actors.

    A Fuzzball is blissfully happy in a bookstore, preferably one with good music playing in the background. If you look under a Fuzzball's bed you'll usually find an entire library of books that she has dropped there after falling asleep reading.

    Fuzzballs are usually incurable romantics, ridiculously optimistic, and bent on making the world a happier place.

    Your typical Fuzzball will probably have a completely bizarre sense of humor. Just go with it, it will take you to funny places.

    You should also be aware that Fuzzballs are giant nerds. Seriously. Science fiction, computers, the whole shebang.

    Fuzzballs are also budding photographers. They love looking at the world through a lens and finding new ways to be creative.

    Oh...and you can also look for a Fuzzball in one of the best movies ever made. ;)

U2's "One" is one of my favorites to play on guitar.

I can't even begin to think of what song I would recommend. I've been sitting here thinking of Beethoven, Mozart, The Beatles...I just don't know. I'll have to get back to you on that one.

Good choice of songs... though i was thinking... U2's "beautiful day"... what you needed in your car... was those grabber things... make you really feel like you... were in an arcade... :)

It's because you're not a die-hard U2 fan that you can choose "One"...I've been a fan of the band since their very beginning so it's much harder to choose. There was an 80s band called Poi Dog Pondering that had a song with a lyric like, "if I die in a car wreck, may I have Van Morrison on my tape deck". It was mentioned in a review with the reviewer applauding that choice of Van Morrison. I remember thinking, "No, it has to be U2", yet in the decades since then I've yet to settle on one song to play while the final credits roll. U2 has been and is the soundtrack of my life. If aliens came to earth I'd say, "listen to this, all of it...this is earth".

Keeping in mind the perameters are "one song to give them for ALL of humanity", tt shouldn't have lyrics, to begin with. Rock and roll/pop is too narrowly "Western".

Maybe something classical, which would at least avoid the issue of lyrics. "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" by Mozart? Or something by Vivaldi? You know, something amazingly beautiful, yet impressive, technically.

I couldn't agree with you more about the U2 song. I'd give them the live version that's like 8 minutes long. Best 8 minutes of music ever, IMO.
