My Weekly Soundtrack: 12/10

The past couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a soundtrack based simply on genre. This week, I’m going back to basics and just going with songs that have been stuck in my head at some point during the past few days. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy them.

Up first is Unraveling, by Sevendust.

Our second song is Better Think Again, by Submersed.

There might be some subtext in this song, but, if there is, it’s too subtle for me.

Fourth is a song by Chevelle called Mexican Sun.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Stephen Lynch song, so here’s one that popped into my head after watching a Christmas special.

Here’s a song by Dark New Day called Evergreen.

Last for this week is Disturbed with their song, Serpentine.

Well everyone, that’s it for this week’s soundtrack. As always, I hope you enjoyed the music and wish you all a good week.

 

My Weekly Soundtrack: 11/12/13

It’s time for me to post a soundtrack on a weird date….11/12/13. They said something about this on the local news this morning (because people are rushing to get married today just because of the date) and I couldn’t help but thinking, “Who cares?” There’s been a date like this every year since 2003 (1/2/03). There’ll be one next year, too (12/13/14). Granted, this won’t happen again after that for 100 years, but, still, who cares? It’s just another day…

There are no themes this week. Just songs that I’ve heard this week. Onto the list….

Up first is Hollow, by Submersed.

The second song for today is Enemy, by Sevendust.

Third is Pieces by Dark New Day.

Fourth is I Get It, by Chevelle.

The fifth song is Sorry, But Your Friends Are Hot by Zebrahead.

Metallica’s Hero of the Day is up sixth. I know a lot of Metallica fans didn’t care for Load, but I like it. I don’t care much for ReLoad, but I do like Load.

The seventh, and final, song is called Slim Pickens Does the Right Thing and Rides the Bomb to Hell, by The Offspring.

My Weekly Soundtrack: 8/27

Welcome, my friends, to the show that never ends…no matter how much you may want it to. That’s right. Today is Tuesday. You know what that means. It means that I’m going to hit you with another one of my playlists. I’m going to stick with last week’s theme and just post songs that have been stuck in my head at some point during the past week.

The first song is one of those times when a song that I don’t really like got stuck in my head. I actually hadn’t heard it in years, so I’m still not sure why it popped into my head in the first place. Oh well. Just one of those things, I guess. Now I’m going to put it up here so you’ll have to share my pain.

My Weekly Soundtrack: 8/13

I didn’t do one of these last week. I have a good reason, too: I just didn’t feel like it. What? That’s not a good reason? Oh, well. It’s a reason, anyways.

There are no themes or hidden messages in this week’s set. They’re just songs chosen at random. Hopefully, they aren’t ones I’ve picked before. I like to try not to use the same ones over and over again.

My Weekly Award Show Soundtrack Post Thing

Did any of that make sense? No? Oh, well. I’m continuing on anyways.

Normally, I accept awards on my blog, but since I’m combining this one with my weekly soundtrack (just like Alice stole from me)/YouTube Tuesday post, I decided to go ahead and do it here. The award I’m accepting comes from Twindaddy. I’d post a link to his blog, but you’re already on it. Ok, now onto the award.

Stupid Song Lyrics *Updated*

I know that song lyrics are┬ásometimes something that needs to be interpreted, and that, when having to rhyme, it’s not always easy to come up with something that sounds good. I also know that song lyrics don’t always have to make sense. Hell, no Nirvana or Bush song ever made sense. However, there have been some lyrics that are so stupid that I feel compelled to point them out.

“If I can ever breathe in the air maybe then I wouldn’t suffocate.” Sevendust, Suffocate.

Really, Sevendust? Is that how the whole breathing thing works? I would never have known that if you hadn’t said anything…..

“I dodge the grave almost every day.” Sevendust, Dead Set

I love this song, but that line has always annoyed me. There’s only one day, in everyone’s life, where they don’t dodge the grave, so this is not news. Give me a call when you start dodging bad lyrics.

“Everyone’s eyes are blue. Everyone’s mouth is dry. And nobody wants to die in Van Nuys.” Sixx: A.M., Van Nuys

As to the first statement, it’s false. While I might have blue eyes, my wife doesn’t, so therefore: not everybody has blue eyes. Second statement: also false. My mouth is not dry, so you’re wrong again. Third statement: this one can be interpreted in a couple of different ways. Is it that nobody who lives in Van Nuys wants to die, or is it that out of all the places in the world that you can die, nobody would pick Van Nuys? I’m sure that the majority of the people in Van Nuys don’t want to die, but I’d bet that at least one person there does, so that interpretation is false. As to the second, I’m pretty sure that people, if told they were going to die, wouldn’t care where they were when it happened, so I’m going to call BS on that one as well.

I had a list that had more on it, but I seemed to have misplaced it. These were just the ones I could remember off the top of my head. If I find the list, or just think of any more, I’ll put them on here. Are there any song lyrics that you think are stupid?

Here are a few more that I’ve found:

“For some fun there is always sex, hiding in the corner like a shy T-Rex.” Hot Action Cop, Busted

This line is so stupid. The rest of the song is great, but the sheer idiocy of this line makes me want to punch something.

“I can’t decide if I’m aware that I’m on trial.” Shinedown, All I Ever Wanted

Being aware of something isn’t something you can decide on. Either you’re aware of it, or you’re not.

The last one is another song by Sixx: A.M. I don’t have a problem with one particular line in the song, I have a problem with the premise of the song. The song is about relapsing while trying to overcome heroin addiction. The song’s name is “Accidents Can Happen”. The reason I have a problem with it is this: You don’t accidentily shoot up or snort heroin (or however the hell heroin is taken). If you do it, you do it on purpose. So, by saying, “You know that accidents can happen and it’s ok. We all fall off the wagon sometimes,” they’re spewing a whole bunch of stupidity.
