You Shook Me All Night Long from Back in Black by AC/DC
So this song is about sex.
I mean some is innuendo, but a majority of the song just puts it out there.
So why do I like this song? I mean Im not really into that sort of thing?
I know it surprises me too. I just love this song. It’s like when you don’t like certain ingredients at all, and then this one dish that combines them you will eat. Or when you like a person and they are nothing at all like your usual type. You don’t know why it works in this case, but it does.
In this case, I know why. It is the music, particularly the guitar.
When I hear that guitar it is like a chemical reaction, I am just so pumped. I like it even better than the lyrics. Not to mention the epic solo:
What can I say, AC/DC knows how to rock my musical world.
You know what I was thinking? This blog needs some more queen. And not just any queen, but the Queen
And what better song to start us off than Bohemian Rhapsody.
Yep, this is one of my favorite Queen songs. It was released in 1975 and topped the charts worldwide, being number one on many country’s charts.
The song was mostly written by Freddie Mercury, took three weeks to record, and was one of the most expensive songs to create at the time.
Some believe the lyrics are nonsense but the song was created to take on features of the Bohemian lifestyle but also included more complex meanings of life. This song is up there with American Pie in its constant analyzation. This below was one I particularly liked.
Now let’s talk about the music. First of all with this song I sing EVERYTHING!
And this also has one of the best guitar solos.
I just love this song.
So take it away boys:
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.
Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I’m easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Anyway the wind blows doesn’t really matter to me, to me.
Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away.
Didn’t mean to make you cry,
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.
Too late, my time has come,
Sent shivers down my spine,
Body’s aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I’ve got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
Mama, ooh (anyway the wind blows),
I don’t wanna die,
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all.
I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
I’m just a poor boy, nobody loves me.
He’s just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Never, never let you go
Never let me go, oh.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can’t do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.
(Oh, yeah, oh yeah)
Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.
This is how I feel about Highway Star by Deep Purple.
My love for this song came around when Rock Band came out and it was all my friends were playing. When I saw Highway Star that was it, that was the only song I wanted to play/sing.
I just love this song for three main reasons:
The Lyrics are super easy to remember
You don’t have to sing it well, in fact it sounds better when sung badly
It has amazing guitar! This song is just so awesome, words cannot describe how I feel about the guitar solo.
Not to mention the epic organ!
Just make sure your musical genius doesn’t lead you to becoming a stalker or murderer
I mean to be honest this is me throughout the whole song.
This is my cruisin’ song. When I was practicing for my driver’s test (which I passed) I would sing this all the time.
The song was actually created on accident during a tour in 1971. A reporter interviewing the group asked how they wrote songs and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore grabbed his guitar and began playing a “G” riff over and over, while the vocalist Ian Gillan just made things up. The song was later retooled and performed that night. Deep Purple is so awesome.
So here are the lyrics, make sure when you listen you crank it up ands let it rip!
Nobody gonna take my car
I’m gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car
It’s gonna break the speed of sound
Oooh it’s a killing machine
It’s got everything
Like a driving power big fat tires
I love it and I need it I bleed it yeah it’s a wild hurricane Alright hold tight I’m a highway star
Nobody gonna take my girl I’m gonna keep her to the end Nobody gonna have my girl She stays close on every bend Oooh she’s a killing machine She’s got everything Like a moving mouth body control and everything
I love her I need her I seed her Yeah She turns me on Alright hold on tight I’m a highway star
Nobody gonna take my head I got speed inside my brain Nobody gonna steal my head Now that I’m on the road again Oooh I’m in heaven again I’ve got everything Like a moving ground an open road and everything
I love it and I need it I seed it Eight cylinders all mine Alright hold on tight I’m a highway star
Nobody gonna take my car I’m gonna race it to the ground Nobody gonna beat my car It’s gonna break the speed of sound Oooh it’s a killing machine It’s got everything Like a driving power big fat tyres and everything
I love it and I need it I bleed it Yeah it’s a wild hurricane Alright hold on tight I’m a highway star I’m a highway star I’m a highway star
I really wish they would put this song in Supernatural. I mean can’t you just see Dean singing it as he is in total love with his car? Right? Wouldn’t that be just perfect?
