I have been in a musical rut as of late. I just haven’t been listening to a whole lot of music. I have however been watching way too much TV. So today I am dedicating fully to music. The whole day listening to songs I know and love to see if I can break free from my musical funk. I shall bring you with me for the first few steps on today’s journey. Here are the first five songs I get when I load up the player and hit shuffle.
Billy Joel – Honesty
I always know it is going to be a good day when I hit the shuffle button and Billy Joel pops up first. And this is such a great tune.
Nickleback – Animals
This’ll get the ‘ole blood pumpin’ after the last song. I never got all the Nickleback bashing. I really like a lot of their music. Just for sheer oddity and entertainment value, someone made their very own video for this song with clips from ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’. I know right..? My exact thought was that; WTF?
Phil Collins – A Groovy Kind Of Love
I see a pattern forming here. Lots of peaks and valleys. No matter, great songs keep coming. Love the Phil Collins.
Rob Zombie – Feel So Numb
I swear I’m not trying to do this. Slow, fast, slow, fast… Crazy how things work out like this sometimes. Excuse me while I headbang to some Zombie…
Carl Douglas – Kung Fu Fighting
Ok, so the pattern didn’t hold out all the way through. But what better way to break out of a musical funk than with a little bit of funk.
