9. Jonesy The Roustabout
Fans of the HBO series Carnivale should know exactly where this song comes from. Tim DeKay, an excellent actor, plays Jonesy who, shockingly, is a roustabout (a dude that sets up the carnival games, tents, etc.). In particular, he manages the Ferris wheel, Colossus. I spent the first couple of months in the new house mainlining this show, and obviously created a carnival theme tune inspired by the show. Lyric-wise, most of the characters are there: Jonesy, Sophie, Management, the voluptuous stripper that Jonesy has an affair with. Most notably, I included a line that I felt summed up the show more than any: “Covered in DIRT!”
