I first discovered this band in early 2020 when a guy from work recommended them to me as he knows I like heavy metal music as well as horror movies. I admit I’ve not listened to their other albums as it was The Silver Scream album that appealed to me. It’s a heavy metal album with each song being about a different horror film. It couldn’t be more perfect for me & my interests & this blog! I’ve been meaning to write a little something about them & now seemed like the perfect time just before Halloween. Plus, they’ve just released The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood!
Well, my main focus here is movies but I do love music too. I’ve never written about music, though, so I’ll be very brief. This post is mainly just to maybe introduce these albums to others. I don’t know how the hell to write about music. Well, I don’t know how to write about movies, either… Ha!
Ice Nine Kills – The Silver Scream
I really like this album, although it’s heavier (well, “screamier”) than the classic type of metal I tend to go for. A lot of the movies they did songs for on this first album are favorites of mine (A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Shining, The Crow & even the not-so-horror Edward Scissorhands). Now, with both of these albums, I don’t love every song. Some are definitely better than others but I absolutely love the concept & it’s a lot of fun having two albums based on some of the best horror movies. (I should point out that they also did an album of songs based on books, Every Trick in the Book, which I’ve not checked out yet.)
From this album, my favorites are probably The American Nightmare & Stabbing in the Dark. Here’s the full list of songs & the movies they’re based on (from Wikipedia):
1. “The American Nightmare” – A Nightmare on Elm Street
2. “Thank God It’s Friday” – Friday the 13th
3. “Stabbing in the Dark” – Halloween
4. “Savages” – The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
5. “The Jig Is Up” – Saw
6. “A Grave Mistake” – The Crow
7. “Rocking the Boat” – Jaws
8. “Enjoy Your Slay” – The Shining
9. “Freak Flag” – The Devil’s Rejects (not seen this. not bothered)
10. “The World in My Hands” – Edward Scissorhands
11. “Merry Axe-mas” – Silent Night, Deadly Night (not seen this either but want to)
12. “Love Bites” – An American Werewolf in London
13. “It Is the End” – It
Ice Nine Kills – The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood
I’ve only just found out about this new album so have only listened to it a couple of times while working. I believe that some have videos as well? Will check it out more this week but the first one to really catch my ear was the Child’s Play one Assault & Batteries. It seems to be a take on the old Toys R Us jingle (in America), so I thought that was clever. Here’s the track listing for this one from Wikipedia:
1. “Opening Night…”
2. “Welcome to Horrorwood”
3. “A Rash Decision” – Cabin Fever
4. “Assault & Batteries” – Child’s Play
5. “The Shower Scene” – Psycho
6. “Funeral Derangements” – Pet Sematary
7. “Rainy Day” – Resident Evil (not seen this)
8. “Hip to Be Scared” – American Psycho
9. “Take Your Pick” – My Bloody Valentine
10. “The Box” – Hellraiser
11. “F.L.Y.” – The Fly
12. “Würst Vacation” – Hostel (not seen this. not interested)
13. “Ex-Mørtis” – The Evil Dead
14. “Farewell II Flesh” – Candyman
Happy Birthday to Anthony Kiedis, who turns 57 today.
I’ve been meaning to do this post for the past three years. I like the Chili Peppers a lot, although I’m not sure if I’d now call them a favorite band of mine. Hmm. Maybe Top 30. Okay, maybe Top 20. They were certainly a favorite when I was in my late teens/early twenties, though. And I had a huge crush on Kiedis. I have fond memories of this Rolling Stone cover on my dorm room wall:
Lovely! Well, as with most of my “Top Ten” lists, I’m just going to do a ranking of all the Chili Peppers songs that I can think of. To be fair, I don’t remember some at this point and don’t know everything from their later years. Blood Sugar Sex Magik is the album I listened to like crazy in my late teens and it’s still my favorite. I should refresh my memory on their oldest stuff. Time to go dust off those CDs…
So, counting down to My Top Ten Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, here’s my ranking for 35 of them:
35. Get Up And Jump
34. True Men Don’t Kill Coyotes
33. Desecration Smile
31. Fight Like A Brave
30. Around The World
29. Hump De Bump
28. Monarchy of Roses
27. Me & My Friends
26. Snow (Hey Oh)
25. The Zephyr Song
24. The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie
22. Mellowship Slinky In B Major
21. Road Trippin’
20. The Righteous & The Wicked
19. Funky Monks
18. Dani California
16. Can’t Stop
15. Suck My Kiss
14. Blood Sugar Sex Magik
13. If You Want Me To Stay
11. Breaking The Girl
10. By The Way
9. Soul To Squeeze
8. I Could Have Lied
7. Scar Tissue
6. Knock Me Down
5. Taste The Pain
4. Brendan’s Death Song
3. Higher Ground
2. Under The Bridge
1. Give It Away
I can’t do a Red Hot Chili Peppers post without a cocks in socks picture…
Today would have been Freddie Mercury’s 71st birthday. I figured this would be a good time to do a Queen top ten list.
I like Queen. I went through a phase for about a year in my twenties when I listened to loads of Queen (I went through a lot of musical “phases” then). I’ve not listened to them as much in recent years and, like with a lot of bands, I must admit that I don’t know much beyond their greatest hits. I didn’t even really know Brighton Rock, which featured heavily in Baby Driver.
But Queen rightly deserve the reputation as one of the all-time greatest rock bands & I miss the days when we had performers as amazing as Mercury. Who do we have nowadays? Ed Sheeran?? Ugh. Everyone is so damn boring now. It truly sucks.
Like with all my lists, this is a ranking of every Queen song I know. If you know of a great album track missing from this list, I’m open to recommendations of songs I should check out. So, counting down to my favorite, here are My Top Ten Queen Songs:
The Rest Of The Songs That I Know:
33. Don’t Lose Your Head
32. Save Me
31. Play The Game
30. Tie Your Mother Down
29. Seven Seas Of Rhye
28. Somebody To Love
27. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
25. You’re My Best Friend
24. Don’t Stop Me Now
23. One Year Of Love
22. I’m Going Slightly Mad
21. These Are The Days Of Our Lives
20. The Miracle
19. I Want It All
18. I Want To Break Free
17. Keep Yourself Alive
16. Stone Cold Crazy
15. Hammer To Fall
14. Princes Of The Universe
13. Flash (all the Flash soundtrack stuff…)
12. The Show Must Go On
11. Who Wants To Live Forever
10. TIE: Fat Bottomed Girls & Bicycle Race 9. We Are The Champions 8. One Vision 7. Radio Ga Ga 6. We Will Rock You
5. Killer Queen
4. A Kind Of Magic
3. Under Pressure
2. Another One Bites The Dust
1. Bohemian Rhapsody(I didn’t want number one to be so obvious but it’s a damn good song)
And an honorable mention for Brighton Rock, thanks to Baby Driver.
And, sorry, but I have to include the Wayne’s World scene. Not ashamed to admit that this will always be one of my favorite movies…
Happy (early) birthday to Dave Grohl, who’s turning 48 on Saturday. Who doesn’t love Dave Grohl? If you hate Dave Grohl, we can’t be friends. I’m allowed to marry Dave Grohl, if he’ll have me. My hubby agreed to that once. What do you say, Dave??? 😉
I’ve always had a thing for talented music dudes & Grohl is one of the best. He’s consistently made brilliant music with various bands but it’s his Foo Fighters stuff that I like the most. I’ve lost touch with music in the past several years where life has gotten too busy plus I suppose I spend any free time I do get on this blog & on movies instead of music. So I admittedly only know the singles from recent albums. It was fun putting this list together, though, as I hadn’t listened to a lot of these songs in a long time. I need to get back to listening to music more often – I don’t do it enough these days. I envy people who to get to listen to music all day while they work.
It wasn’t easy to decide on the order for this list but the top two are definite and I can’t see that ever changing – I adore those songs. As for the rest, they’re all so good that I couldn’t leave them out so I’ll count down from 20. They’ve never had a bad song, which can’t be said of many bands. Here are My Top Ten Foo Fighters Songs:
19. Walking After You
18. Stacked Actors
17. Next Year
16. I’ll Stick Around
15. The One
14. Best Of You
13. This Is A Call
12. These Days
I think everyone knows that most songs are either about sex or drugs, right? I usually pick up on the sex ones but never the drug ones (I was shocked that Golden Brown by The Stranglers was about heroin! I’m so naïve).
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about doing this list for a while but there are so many dirty songs that it took me ages to put this together. I’ll have missed plenty! This time, I needed some help online. I did manage to verify that most of these are indeed about sex (Dave Grohl – you naughty boy! He’s a big fan of doing what his is about, apparently). But some are my own interpretation (or dirty mind, maybe). I’m happy to hear from anyone who disagrees with any of these! I looked at a lot of different websites for these dirty songs but the site I probably looked at the most was songfacts.com.
For the most part, I’ve tried to choose ones that are slightly more “subtle”. I think the subtle ones are so much better than the really blatant songs about sex (rap is so blatant!). I especially like my number one – it’s subtle yet also so obvious if you give it the slightest bit of thought. I was just too young to give it much thought at the time it came out! Filthy.
I’ve decided to eliminate certain artists who seem to sing about sex in the majority of their songs. Filthy bastards! And most are really blatant anyway. So I’m leaving out songs by Aerosmith, Prince, Kiss, AC/DC, Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, and The Rolling Stones. Oh, and Led Zeppelin– all their songs are either about sex or Hobbits. And as there are so many, I’ll count down from 20 once again. Yeah, but I’ll still call it a Top Ten to be annoying. 😉
So here are My Top Ten Songs That Are Actually About Sex (counting down from 20):
20. Lady Gaga – The Edge of Glory What It’s About: Orgasm Lyrics: I’m on the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge, the edge. I’m on the edge of glory, and I’m hangin’ on a moment with you. I’m on the edge with you.
19. Wham! – Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go What It’s About: Sex (not having to masturbate) Lyrics: Wake me up before you go go. ‘Cause I’m not plannin’ on going solo. Wake me up before you go go. Take me dancing tonight. I wanna hit that high, yeah, yeah.
18. Madness – House Of Fun What It’s About: Buying condoms for the first time Lyrics: Good morning Miss. Can I help you son? Sixteen today, and up for fun. I’m a big boy now, or so they say. So if you’ll serve, I’ll be on my way. (Thanks to the conversation on my review HERE). 😉
17. Loverboy – Lovin’ Every Minute Of It What It’s About: A Vibrator Lyrics: I’m not man or machine, I’m just something in between.
16. Dan Hartman – I Can Dream About You What It’s About: Masturbation Lyrics: I can dream about you. If I can’t hold you tonight. I can dream about you. You know how to hold me just right.
15. Grace Jones – Pull Up To The Bumper What It’s About: Sex Lyrics: Pull up to my bumper baby, in your long black limousine. Pull up to my bumper baby, and drive it in between.
14. Bryan Adams – Summer Of ’69 What It’s About: Sexual awakening and, literally, “69” Lyrics: It was the summer of ’69, oh, yeah. Me and my baby in ’69, oh.
13. The Beatles – Ticket To Ride What It’s About: German hookers (the medical card German hookers had to prove they had no diseases was called a “ticket to ride”) Lyrics: She’s got a ticket to ride. She’s got a ticket to ride. She’s got a ticket to ride. But she don’t care.
12. Bloc Party – Banquet What It’s About: Oral Sex Lyrics: She’s got such a dirty mind and it never ever stops. And you don’t taste like her and you never ever will.
11. Duran Duran – Save A Prayer What It’s About: A one night stand Lyrics: Some people call it a one night stand but we can call it paradise.
10. Cutting Crew – (I Just) Died In Your Arms What It’s About: Orgasm (as in the Shakespearian meaning – no actual dirty lyrics. Nice job!) Lyrics: Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight. It must have been something you said. I just died in your arms tonight.
9. Melanie – Brand New Key What It’s About: Sex Lyrics: Well I got a brand new pair of roller skates, you got a brand new key. I think that we should get together and try them out you see.
8. Madonna – Like A Prayer What It’s About: Sex Lyrics: When you call my name it’s like a little prayer. I’m down on my knees I wanna take you there. In the midnight hour I can feel your power. Just like a prayer you know I’ll take you there.
7. The Vapors – Turning Japanese What It’s About: Masturbation Lyrics:
I’ve got your picture, I’ve got your picture. I’d like a million of them all round my cell. I want the doctor to take your picture. So I can look at you from inside as well.
6. Violent Femmes – Blister In The Sun What It’s About: Masturbation. Although the Violent Femmes deny this. Lyrics: Let me go on… like I blister in the sun. Let me go on… big hands, I know you’re the one.
5. Foo Fighters – All My Life What It’s About: Oral sex Lyrics: Hey don’t let it go to waste, I love it but I hate the taste.
4. Faith No More – Epic What It’s About: Masturbation Lyrics: It’s dark, it’s moist, it’s a bitter pain. It’s sad it happened and it’s a shame.
3. The Cure – Close To Me What It’s About: Masturbation. Or Sex. Who knows for sure – it’s Robert Smith! Lyrics: Just try to see in the dark, just try to make it work. To feel the fear before you’re here.
2. Billy Idol/Generation X – Dancing With Myself What It’s About: Masturbation Lyrics: When there’s no-one else in sight, in the crowded lonely night. Well I wait so long, for my love vibration. And I’m dancing with myself.
1. Peter Gabriel – Sledgehammer What It’s About: Sex Lyrics: Open up your fruitcage, where the fruit is as sweet as can be.
I’ll talk more about Sledgehammer for tomorrow’s Music Video Friday. This is the kind of filth that I like – clever innuendo that kids wouldn’t pick up on. Plus I love Peter Gabriel. 🙂
Okay – there are way too many dirty songs. Here are some more & what they seem to be about:
Hozier – Take Me To Church (Sex)
Kelis – Milkshake (Shaking her boobies)
Missy Elliot – Work It (Sex)
Fleetwood Mac – Tusk (Mick Fleetwood’s penis)
Nirvana – Heart-Shaped Box (Uterus)
Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar On Me (Sex)
The Pointer Sisters – Slow Hand (Sex)
ZZ Top – Pearl Necklace (Orgasm)
Whitesnake – Here I Go Again (Masturbation)
Cyndi Lauper – She Bop (Masturbation)
Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah (Orgasm)
And, okay – here are just a few of the thousands of blatant ones:
Sheena Easton – Sugar Walls (Vagina)
Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax (Sex)
Ted Nugent – Cat Scratch Fever (Sex) (Well, I make the pussy purr with the stroke of my hand…)
Nina Simone – I Need A Little Sugar In My Bowl (Sex)
Azealia Banks – 212 (Oral Sex, possibly in a 3 way)
Salt-N-Pepa – Shoop (Sex) (I’ll forever think of Deadpool now)
Warrant – Cherry Pie (Sex)
Finally, I’ll end with the video for a f*^ked-up song that I’ve found bizarrely fascinating since the first time I heard it & which still pops into my head when making sandwiches. It’s clearly not about making sandwiches…
I’ve been meaning to do this list for a while but there are just SO many songs with colors in the title. I decided to not go overboard like when I did My Top Ten Devil & Hell Songs and spent ages making sure I hadn’t missed any favorites with “Devil” or “Hell” in the title. There are too many color songs (or colour in the UK – I wish autocorrect would stop correcting me) so I’ve not spent ages doing an exhaustive list and am sure I’ve missed a favorite that’ll have me kicking myself.
However, there are too many to narrow it down to only ten so I’ll count down from 20 to my favorite. And, okay – I have honorable mentions too. Sorry! 😉 But I’ve still left out loads of songs. Would love to hear what other Color Songs are the favorites of fellow bloggers!
Here are My Top Ten Songs With Colors In The Title (based, of course, on how much I like the song):
By the way – I already had the argument with the hubby on if “Rainbow” could be included or not. As always, I won. It’s my blog, after all. 😉 I’ll now do my best to not list 1,000 honorable mentions…
– Green Onions by Booker T. & The M.G.’s – White Lines (Don’t Don’t Do It) by Grandmaster & Melle Mel – Fool’s Gold by The Stone Roses – Fade To Grey by Visage – Subterranean Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan – White Wedding by Billy Idol – Black by Pearl Jam – Golden Brown by The Stranglers – Green Hell by Misfits – Gold Lion by Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Violet by Hole – White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane – Colours by Donovan (also, Turquoise & Mellow Yellow…)
Oh, sweet Satan – you’ve been the inspiration for so many heavy metal bands!
Today I have not just one, not 666, but TWO Top Ten lists! One for each Devil horn!
When I started making this list, I only had Satan in mind. Then I thought “I think songs with the word Hell in the title can be included as well”. Turns out there are way too many to narrow it down to ten that way so I have one list of songs with “Devil” in the title and one for those with “Hell” in the title. (Although my number one doesn’t actually have “Devil” in the title but I do like to play by my own rules). 😉
As always, these are ranked according to how much I like the song.
Let’s start with My Top Ten Devil Songs:
10. Billy Talent – Devil In A Midnight Mass 9. Devil’s Spoke by Laura Marling 8. Devils Haircut by Beck 7. Devil Inside by INXS 6. Christmas With The Devil by Spinal Tap
5. The Devil Went Down To Georgia by The Charlie Daniels Band
4. Runnin’ With The Devil by Van Halen
3. Shout At The Devil by Mötley Crüe
2. Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones
1. The Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden
Honorable Devil Mentions:
– Devil’s Child by Judas Priest
– (You’re The) Devil In Disguise by Elvis Presley
– Devil Gate Drive by Suzi Quatro
– Devil With A Blue Dress On by Mitch Ryder And The Detroit Wheels
– Devil Woman by Cliff Richard
– Goddamn Devil by Ugly Kid Joe (Ha! Remember them? I’d forgotten about this song…)
– Grab The Devil By The Horns & Fuck Him Up The Ass by Sum 41 (it’s a title that I had to include)
Now it’s time to go to HELL… Here are My Top Ten Hell Songs:
10. TIE: Hell by Squirrel Nut Zippers & Hell by Foo Fighters 9. Catch Hell Blues by The White Stripes 8. Bat Out Of Hell by Meat Loaf 7. Run Like Hell by Pink Floyd 6. Green Hell by Misfits
5. Cowboys From Hell by Pantera
4. Straight To Hell by The Clash
3. Hell Bent For Leather by Judas Priest
2. Heaven And Hell by Black Sabbath
1. Highway To Hell by AC/DC (and Hells Bells, too!)
Honorable Hell Mentions:
– Go To Hell by Megadeth
– Hell Hole by Spinal Tap
– The Hell Song & Welcome To Hell by Sum 41 (what’s with them and Hell & Devil songs??)
Also, an honorable mention in general to Tenacious D’s Tribute since it’s about the Devil. Plus, Dave Grohl is the coolest Satan ever.
And there’s one on this list that I only heard for the first time yesterday but I thought it was pretty damn good considering it’s folk! It went straight into my top ten so thanks to my husband for suggesting I listen to Devil’s Spoke by Laura Marling. Here’s the video:
I get really annoyed when a song isn’t named what it should be. Such as: Why the hell isn’t Baba O’Riley by The Who called Teenage Wasteland?! They don’t mention the words Baba O’Riley at all in the song but they sing “Teenage Wasteland” over & over again!
Okay, it doesn’t REALLY annoy me all that much – there are bigger things in life to worry about. 😉 But I did think it would make a fun top ten list! Like last week, though, I’m going to be annoying & make this a Top 20 (there were too many!). Feel free to add any you think of – I admit that with this list I’ve only looked through what’s on my iPod so there will be loads of songs I’ve not thought of or not mentioned.
So here are My Top Twenty Songs Where The Title Isn’t In The Lyrics (ranked roughly according to how much I like the song – I don’t think the order is important with this one):
20. MGMT – Kids(Should Be: Take Only What You Need) 19. Massive Attack – Unfinished Sympathy(Should Be: Really Hurt Me Baby) 18. Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song(Should Be: Ah Ah Ahhhhhhh AH!) 17. Death From Above 1979 – Black History Month(Should Be: Dunno. Maybe “Hold On”. But that’s a Wilson Phillips song…) 16. Blink 182 – Dammit(Should Be: This Is Growing Up) 15. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Brendan’s Death Song(Should Be: I’m Almost Gone)14. Bob Dylan – Subterranean Homesick Blues (Should Be: I have no idea… How about “Mixin’ Up The Medicine”!) 13. Interpol – Evil(Should Be: Rosemary) 12. New Order – Blue Monday(Should Be: How Does It Feel?) 11. Daft Punk – Instant Crush(Should Be: We Will Never Be Alone Again)
10. Public Image Ltd – The Order Of Death Should Be: This Is What You Want, This Is What You Get
I adore John Lydon & this Public Image Ltd song, which is used prominently in the shower scene in Hardware. Yes! I’ve managed to once again mention the movie Hardware on my blog! Anyway, it’s an awesome song title even if it’s not said – most of the titles in this list are better than my “Should Be” titles.
9. Blur – Song 2 Should Be: Woohoo!
Such a fun song! It’s apparently named Song 2 because it’s two minutes long plus I think it was also the second song on the album? I sometimes play it when timing my kid’s toothbrushing (because kids are meant to brush for two full minutes, right?). Well, it’s a fun way to brush teeth!
8. The Police – Synchronicity II Should Be: Not sure – maybe “Many Miles Away”
I used to really be into song lyrics as a teen/early twentysomething – you know, the age when you have time to waste on that kind of shit. But I never looked into the lyrics to this one at all until now. Pretty deep stuff with this one! And pretty bleak. This is quite possibly my very favorite song by The Police, who I don’t think really got the credit they deserved. An excellent band & I think I now like this song even more after reading the lyrics but I have to say I still don’t understand the title. I’m too old to think about these things.
7. TIE: Gorillaz – Dirty Harry & Clint Eastwood Should Be: I Need A Gun & Sunshine In A Bag
I love Gorillaz!!! Do any Americans here know their songs? I think they were far bigger in the UK. I’m actually reading Tank Girl at the moment because it was created by the same guy (Jamie Hewlett) who created this “cartoon band” (one member of the band being adorable Damon Albarn from that picture of Blur I posted for Song 2). These are my two favorite songs of theirs & it made sense to put “Clint Eastwood” & “Dirty Harry” together for this post. The titles are cool. The look of the band is cool. The songs are cool. They should be even bigger than they are!
6. Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five – The Message Should Be: Don’t Push Me
Seriously. Don’t push me. I’m close to the EDGE!
5. The Who – Baba O’Riley Should Be: Teenage Wasteland
I’ve not researched all of these songs but did of course look into this one. Here’s a bit about it from Genius.com:
Initially part of an idea (later thrown aside) of a follow up rock opera — Lifehouse — to Tommy, Pete Townshend wrote it after his experience at Woodstock. The name of the song is a combination of Meher Baba – an Indian guru that kept silent from 1935 until his death in 1969 who inspired Townshend spiritually, and Terry Riley — a musician and classical composer that also inspired him.
There’s actually a lot more to it if you want to read about it at Wikipedia – it’s an interesting read. But whatever the reason for the title, it’s a damn good song.
4. The Cure – Lullaby Should Be: The Spiderman
I just really really like this song. 😉 Love The Cure.
3. David Bowie – Space Oddity Should Be: Ground Control To Major Tom
Well, okay – I assume this title is a play on words after 2001: A Space Odyssey. I looked this one up too. Turns out this song is actually about alienation. I thought it was about a guy going into space! I’m so damn literal. This song has now gone up even more in my estimation. And I already loved it like crazy before. Because: Bowie. 🙂
2. Black Sabbath – Paranoid Should Be: Not sure but any excuse to get Black Sabbath into a list… How about “I Am Frowning All The Time”
Black Sabbath have quite a few songs where the title isn’t in the lyrics (except Iron Man, of course). I almost used Black Sabbath but the word “black” is said, so – close enough! I do love the lyrics to Paranoid – you can tell that Sabbath come from dark, grey, dreary England… 😉
1. The Clash – Train In Vain Should Be: Stand By Me
Okay – clearly The Clash couldn’t use Stand By Me as the Ben E. King song was such a huge hit. I’m thinking I like The Clash even more than I realized – this song also topped my list of My Top Ten Happy Songs. I love it! And Train In Vain is an excellent title even though I’m sure most people can’t name it.
Almost Mentions: (I considered these but in looking up the lyrics, I ruled them out as at least one of the words was mentioned)
Harvey Danger – Flagpole Sitta
The Rolling Stones – Sympathy For The Devil
Black Sabbath – Black Sabbath
The Smiths – How Soon Is Now
Radiohead – Paranoid Android (how can I have not noticed that in this song, one of my absolute all-time favorite desert island tracks, there’s a voice saying the words paranoid & android in the background the whole time?!)
Yep, I have no movie reviews ready to post today so it’s time for a super lazy Top Ten List! Look, Seth – SABBATH! 🙂
Counting down to my number one favorite, here are My Top Ten Black Sabbath Songs:
10. TIE: Planet Caravan & A National Acrobat
8. Electric Funeral
7. Iron Man
6. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
4. Fairies Wear Boots
3. War Pigs
2. Spiral Architect
1. Black Sabbath
Number one & two are SO close… Think it depends on my mood. Yeah – I mainly just know the “Greatest Hits”. This was an easy post – I should do these more often!
Actually, I just realized that I can make this a movie-related post as well. One of the many movies I watched in 2014 but didn’t get around to reviewing was Drew: The Man Behind The Poster. I’ll still review that as I found it fascinating and I LOVE Drew Struzan’s movie posters. However, as he’s so well known for his famous movie posters, I had NO idea before watching the documentary that he’d also done one of my favorite album covers (and back cover) for one of my favorite bands! Black Sabbath’s Sabbath Bloody Sabbath:
How did I not know that?? Anyway – here’s the song Black Sabbath. I love that it sounds like what you’d hear on the way to Hell. It’s perfect for the walk to work. 🙂
My Top Ten Iron Maiden songs in order starting with my favorite:
1. Phantom Of The Opera
2. Fear Of The Dark
3. Wasted Years
4. The Number Of The Beast
5. Strange World
6. Run To The Hills
7. Iron Maiden
8. The Trooper
9. Can I Play With Madness
That was difficult. I like ALL Maiden, okay?! My all-time favorite band. So hopefully no Maiden fans come here and go “where’s this song and that song?”. Lol!
Just enjoy this photo of my Maiden box set and Maiden Beer. How cool is that beer?? I hate beer! I’m totally never drinking it. I’m going to put it in a nice glass cabinet with lots of pretty girly things. 🙂
