Wednesday is here and that means a few things. . .
- It’s almost Friday.
- Deadpool is coming. . .
- Hump Day is today!
- We’re one day closer to the weekend.
- Deadpool is motorboating Hump Day, and also humping its leg.
- I’ve got the six. . .give me your nine.
Let’s turn the music up! Get loud and proud!
OK, so this is where number six came in to play from. ZZ Top is pretty notorious for their beards, and their sound. . .aside from hits like Legs, Gimme All Your Lovin’, Sharp Dressed Man, Got Me Under Pressure, and more.
If you also watched King of the Hill, you’d know Dusty is Hank’s cousin. Ha.
There’s also a nice cover by Electric Six.
This is a great song with that great Daft Punk sound. Paul Williams nails it with this lovely tune, and he really gets you into the song (the imagery painted is more than enough) as he sings it. One of the best songs off of Random Access Memories.
One of my favorite bands that I’ve discovered while on dark ventures through YouTube to date, Sólstafir lays it on thick. While they’re native Icelandic, they have some English songs, but honestly, don’t let the language barrier hold you back. I like to believe that music is universal and you can understand a song, regardless of its native tongue. This song has such a lovely, dark, and ominous touch.
I can’t just share this song without this fan made rendition to Valhalla Rising. Which, by the way, is a great movie.
You can’t go wrong with Styx. . .not to mention Renegade. I kind of feel this is a bit self-explanatory, but meh, why not. It’s a rock classic, that entails the telling of an outlaw that’s captured for a bounty, and is about to be executed. No, he’s not singing to his mama. . . Mama was another nickname men would call their girls, wives, etc. You know, like dame, byrd, so on.
It’s The Offspring! C’mon, what’s not to love? Sure, you have Pretty Fly (For a White Guy), The Kids Aren’t Alright, Self Esteem, Gotta Get Away, but there is so, so much more. . . This is the go to song for when you have a leech in your life that is just sucking you dry (and not in the enjoyable way) and well, what better way than saying it? Play it!
That wraps it up for this edition of Music That Inspires You. Check back Friday for this week’s closeout of randy times. Oh, and Fox? Give Fantastic Four back to Marvel. 😉
