Tomorrow we have a Bulge Party. Infa will be the deejay tomorrow and he also came with the idea to have a Bulge Party as theme. Normally I post something about the theme and also try to find a song that would fit in theme. That was not an easy job with this theme. But lets have a start and find out what BULGE means.
Wikipedia was not that helping this time.

Next search was to find a song. There are no songs with bulge in the song title but there are a few with bulge in the lyrics. One is Mr. Jones by the Talking Heads from there album Naked.
Talking Heads were an American new wave and avant-garde band formed in 1975 in
and active until 1991. The band
comprised David Byrne (lead vocals and guitar), Chris Frantz (drums and backing
vocals), Tina Weymouth (bass and backing vocals) and Jerry Harrison (keyboards,
guitar, and backing vocals). Auxiliary musicians also regularly made
appearances in concert and on the group's albums. The new wave style of Talking
Heads combined elements of punk rock, art rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, world
music, and New York City . Frontman and songwriter David Byrne (born Americana May
14, 1952 in
) contributed whimsical, esoteric
lyrics to the band's songs, and emphasized their showmanship through various
multimedia projects and performances. Dumbarton, Scotland
Critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine describes Talking Heads as being "one of the most critically acclaimed bands of the '80s, while managing to earn several pop hits." In 2002, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Four of the band's albums appeared on Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and the Channel 4 100 Greatest Albums poll listed one album (Fear of Music) at number 76. On a 2011 update of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Artists of All Time", the band was ranked at No. 100.
Naked (Talking Heads album)
Naked is the eighth and final studio album by Talking Heads, released in 1988. The band dissolved shortly after the album's release, finally announcing their breakup in 1991.
Wanting to try something different after their use of regional American music and the pop song format on their previous two albums, Little Creatures and True Stories, Talking Heads decided to record their final album in Paris with a group of international musicians. Prior to leaving for France, the band recorded about 40 improvisational tracks that would serve as the foundation for the sessions in Paris.
Once in Paris, the band, along with producer Steve Lillywhite were joined by a number of other musicians in the recording studio where they would rehearse and play for the entire day. At the end of each day, one take was selected as being the ideal version of a particular tune.
In the interest of freedom for the musicians, it was decided that lyrics and melodies would be left until later. The lyrics were not overdubbed until the band returned to New York. Many of David Byrne's lyrics were improvisations sung along with the prerecorded tracks until he found something that he felt worked. In this way, the melodies and lyrics evolved in a similar fashion as the songs themselves.
Talking Heads – Mr. Jones
Put a wiggle in your stride
I believe he'll be alright
Now he's got ventilated slacks
Bouncing off the walls
Mr. Jones is back!
And wind your waist
Got curly hair
Drinking cold beer
From metal cans
Mr. Jones is back in town
It's his lucky day
Hold up your hands and shout
Jones is on his way
Mr. Jones is back in town
Now his pants are falling down
He looks so fine
In those patent leather shoes
Mr. Jones, you look tired
I believe you'll be alright
Some rock stars
And skinny legs
And real estate
It's a big day for Mr. Jones
He is not so square
Mr. Jones will stick around
He's everybody's friend
I'm sure glad
He's on our side
The Jones Gang
Down at the bar
Watch out, this time
They've gone too far
They call for Mr. Jones
They put him in charge
Mr. Jones will help us out
He's a lucky guy
It is Mr. Jones' Birthday party
For another year
In his hotel room Party favors
It's a holiday
