Back in Black

ACDCBackinBlack

Back in Black by AC/DC

So let’s see what can I say about this song? The lyrics are just whatever, it is the music that sells me. Starting with that opening riff and carrying through the rest of the song, just amazing!

And of course this song makes me think of Supernatural as it has played quite a few times in the show’s run.

Even though I have no idea really what’s being said, I like listening to it and attempting to sing along. Sometimes you need some good ol’ ’80s rock!

Rock You Like a Hurricane

RockYouLikeAHurricaine

Just kidding!

rock-you-like-a-hurricane-scorpions-7

I love Rock You Like a Hurricane by The Scorpions. It always reminds me of my friend Amelia because it used to be her ringtone for a really long time.

Rock You Like a Hurricane has been a huge hit through the years; number 25 in the USA Billboard Hot 100, number 31 on VH1’s 40 Greatest Metal Songs, VH1’s 18th greatest hard rock songs of all time, and the the number 4 best riff of the 80’s. It’s an awesome song that bridges the gap between rock and metal.

StarTrekFascinatingSpock

Don’t worry Spock, I feel the same way.

Love it so much! I mean just the opening chords and lyrics, and I’m pumped and ready to get going with this song.

It’s early morning
The sun comes out
Last night was shaking
And pretty loud
My cat is purring
And scratches my skin
So what is wrong
With another sin
The b**** is hungry
She needs to tell
So give her inches
And feed her well
More days to come
New places to go
I’ve got to leave
It’s time for a show

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

rock you like a hurricaine

My body is burning
It starts to shout
Desire is coming
It breaks out loud
Lust is in cages
Till storm breaks loose
Just have to make it
With someone I choose
The night is calling
I have to go
The wolf is hungry
He runs the show
He’s licking his lips
He’s ready to win
On the hunt tonight
For love at first sting

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

Plus let’s not forget the awesome cover by Rock of Ages. Every time I see Tom Cruise on that pole I am amazed how he was able to climb it in those boots. (*Note*: this wasn’t in the actual film, it was cut out for the final version.)

Whip It

Music

Music is awesome and helps you overpower anything. One such song being:

devo-freedom-of-choice-album-1a

26) Whip It by Devo

Whip It was created by Devo in the ’80s. The lyrics were inspired by the book Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon. The whole purpose of the song was to overcome adversity by “whipping” or defeating any problem you may face. Devo wears their trademark black, sleeveless turtlenecks, and their red Energy Dome headgear. 

This song has been covered by tons of people; everyone from Alvin and the Chipmunks, to Moby, to Korn. 

Crack that whip
Give the past a slip
Step on a crack
Break your momma’s back

When a problem comes along
You must whip it
Before the cream sets out too long
You must whip it
When something’s goin’ wrong
You must whip it

WhipItDevo

Now whip it
Into shape
Shape it up
Get straight
Go forward
Move ahead
Try to detect it
It’s not too late
To whip it
Whip it good

When a good time turns around
You must whip it
You will never live it down
Unless you whip it
No one gets away
Until they whip it

I say whip it
Whip it good
I say whip it
Whip it good

Crack that whip
Give the past a slip
Step on a crack
Break your momma’s back

When a problem comes along
You must whip it
Before the cream sets out too long
You must whip it
When something’s goin’ wrong
You must whip it

Highway Star

favsong

This is how I feel about Highway Star by Deep Purple.

Highway Star

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.

Highway Star

I just love this song for three main reasons:

  1. The Lyrics are super easy to remember
  2. You don’t have to sing it well, in fact it sounds better when sung badly
  3. It has amazing guitar! This song is just so awesome, words cannot describe how I feel about the guitar solo.

epic solo

 

Not to mention the epic organ!

Just make sure your musical genius doesn't lead you to becoming a stalker or murderer Your story isn't as romantic as the POG's. Mary can't pull that off.

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.

Lyrics2ndvoice&Guitar

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
and everything

I love it and I need it
I bleed it yeah it’s a wild hurricane
Alright hold tight

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 I’m in heaven again I’ve got everything

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?

Na-Na-Na- My Chemical Romance

Yep, another My Chemical Romance post!

gerardWay

So this song is off their album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, and like all MCR albums, follows a story rather than just being individual songs. It took over a year to create the album, and the band wrote over 36 songs, not of all they kept. This story is set in the year 2019, a post-apocalyptic California.  There are a few willing to stand up to the tyrants, these rebel forces called Killjoys, of which MCR is a part of. The music videos and songs reference a lot of films, such as Blade Runner, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Mad Max, The Karate Kid, Dredd/Judge Dredd etc.

Each band member has an alter-ego Gerard Way being Party Poison”, Ray Toro is Jet Star, Frank Iero is Fun Ghoul, and Mikey Way is Kobra Kid. All of which look really hot in their rebel wear/masks. There is just something to be said for vigilantes who wear masks. 🙂

mCR

The guide for the Killjoys is a pirate radio DJ named Dr. Death Defying who is voiced by Steve Montano.  The music video of ‘”Na Na Na” shows the Killjoys’ daily lives until Korse (the evil corporation) defeats them and captures The Girl, in which a later song they have to go rescue her back. 

Now the lyrics and video are just AMAZING! The music just gets you pumped!

revolution Dancing V for vendetta

I think it is one of their best works yet.

The future is bulletproof
The aftermath is secondary
It’s time to do it now and do it loud
Killjoys, make some noise

Drugs, gimme drugs, gimme drugs
I don’t need it but I’ll sell what you got
Take the cash and I’ll keep it
Eight legs to the wall, hit the gas, kill ’em all
And we crawl, and we crawl, and we crawl
You be my detonator

Love, gimme love, gimme love
I don’t need it but I’ll take what I want from your heart
And I’ll keep it in a bag, in a box
Put an X on the floor
Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more
Shut up and sing it with me

From mall security
To every enemy
We’re on your property
Standing in V-formation
Let’s blow an artery
Eat plastic surgery
Keep your apology
Give us more detonation

(More, gimme more, gimme more)
Oh, let me tell you ’bout the sad man
Shut up and let me see your jazz hands
Remember when you were a madman
Thought you was Batman

Dean Winchester Batman

And hit the party with a gas can
Kiss me you animal

You run the company
F*** like a Kennedy
I think we’d rather be
Burning your information
Let’s blow an artery
Eat plastic surgery
Keep your apology
Give us more detonation

And right here, right now
All the way in Battery City
The little children raised their open filthy palms
Like tiny daggers up to heaven
And all the juvie halls
And the Ritalin rats ask angels
Made from neon and fucking garbage
Scream out “What will save us?”
And the sky opened up

Everybody wants to change the world
Everybody wants to change the world
But no one, no one wants to die
Wanna try, wanna try, wanna try, wanna try, wanna try now
I’ll be your detonator

Make no apology
It’s death or victory
On my authority
Crash and burn
Young and loaded
Drop like a bulletshell
Dress like a sleeper cell
I’d rather go to hell
Than be in purgatory
Cut my hair
Gag and bore me
Pull this pin
Let this world explode

Since U Been Gone

Grudge

So here we are another step in the “Getting Over a Heartbreak” series. As you recall from Gone Forever, Put Me Outand But It’s Alright; we still are in that angry at my ex phase. So here we are with:

Since_U_Been_Gone_

16) Since U Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson.

Now I have always liked Kelly Clarkson, although I have never really thought of myself as being a major fan. I remember when Kelly Clarkson won American Idol (yep back when the show was good and the winners actually went on to do something). I even watched her silly film From Justin to Kelly, starring her and the runner up. However, I am a huge fan of this song! I absolutely loved it!

So the song was written by Max Martin and Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald who actually wrote it for  Pink. She turned it down and it was then offered to Clarkson, in which she added more guitar and drums to counteract the light pop sound. It was number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The music video is great, as after her boyfriend cheated on her and dumped her she ripped his place apart. Now I’m not one for vandalism, but finding out someone cheated on you will make anyone go crazy and pull this or a Daisy from Mystic Pizza.

Stay

It’s just a great song that truly captures how one feels after being betrayed by someone they loved and how angry they feel.

Adele

 

But just like The End by Silverstein just be careful how you react, its fine to sing about it, but if you actually participate in that kind of destruction just be prepared for the consequences.

So on to the lyrics and video!!!

Here’s the thing we started out friends
It was cool but it was all pretend
Yeah yeah
Since U Been Gone

You dedicated you took the time
Wasn’t long till I called you mine
Yeah Yeah
Since U Been Gone

And all you’d ever hear me say
Is how I pictured me with you
That’s all you’d ever hear me say

But Since U Been Gone
I can breathe for the first time
I’m so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get
What I want
Since U Been Gone

Miss you less sweeney-todd-sweeney-todd-23636342-500-270

How can I put it? You put me on
I even fell for that stupid love song
Yeah, yeah
Since U Been Gone

How come I’d never hear you say
I just wanna be with you
I guess you never felt that way

But Since U Been Gone
I can breathe for the first time
I’m so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get (I get) what I want
Since U Been Gone

You had your chance you blew it
Out of sight, out of mind
Shut your mouth I just can’t take it
Again and again and again and again

Since U Been Gone
I can breathe for the first time
I’m so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you (thanks to you)
Now I get, I get what I want
I can breathe for the first time
I’m so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you (thanks to you)
Now I get (I get)
You should know (you should know)
That I get, I get what I want
Since U Been Gone
Since U Been Gone
Since U Been Gone

So the music video is super amazing!!!

So this song became super popular that A Day to Remember did a cover and copied the music video scene by scene. It’s pretty cool.

I have to say that I really enjoy the Kelly Clarkson version, that’s why I included it, but I like the A Day to Remember  a little bit better. I like how it has more of a rock than pop sound and I like the screamo as I think it really expresses the anger in the song. But however it is sung the song is still great.

And it teaches you an important thing:

valuable

Because never forget:

Gossip girl destination

And:

onceinalifetime

But at the same time don’t get too caught up in anger and bitterness. After all:

Best Revenge
