What the hell, man?

I am a freak.

I've been listening to the same eleven songs on Grooveshark for about a month now. Looks like it's gonna stay that way.

I like to write with music on. I like the wall of sound. But it has to be a wall of sound I'm familiar with so I'm not distracted by learning a new band or album.

Here's what I've been writing to:

Don't Fear the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult
Burning for You - Blue Oyster Cult
Caught Up in You - .38 Special
Hold on Loosely - .38 Special
Back in Black - AC/DC
Highway to Hell - AC/DC
You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC
Hell's Bells - AC/DC
Cuts You Up - Peter Murphy
Temple of Love - Sisters of Mercy
She Sells Sanctuary - The Cult

It's been working. Before this it was a month of Rammstein and Finntroll. All foreign metal, all the time.

That is all.

Ten minutes after I wrote this I was all....hmm. Finntroll. I like Finntroll.

Back on the foreign metal while writing kick.

That's a playlist!

I have to grab some Blue Oyster Cult. I love the notion of how the last three work with the first group. Hm...

I love that you found a connection. I didn't even bother. I was all...what do I want to listen to that isn't distracting? And it ended up being wicked oldies. Ugh. The fact that these are now "oldies" freaks me out.

Hey: that all looks fine to me.

I love "Godzilla," though I think my favorite BOC song is "This Ain't the Summer of Love."

I love basically all AC/DC with Bon Scott. If you want blood, you got it.

Here's an entertaining cover of "Summer of Love": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZcUXPphDDY

This is why we are friends, Mr. A. You have excellent taste in music. It doesn't hurt that you are a depraved, talented reprobate.

I have Agents of Fortune on vinyl :) Yes, I'm that old. Do you like Clawfinger? Speaking of foreign metal :D

I hadn't heard of them! I just looked 'em up on youtube. What album is a good starter?

That's actually kind of hard for me to answer because I got what I have from a Swedish friend who burned something for me. Sooooo,,,, tracks I love [off the top of my head]

Two Sides
Biggest & The Best
Nigger [my friend knows them and had a discussion with them about NOT performing this track in the US]
Better Than This
The Price We Pay
It's Your Life
Life Will Kill You

The thing I really like about them is that they have really pointed social commentary.

Oh man. Bad song name though.

I'll dig around on 'em.

Definitely. Which is what Mats was telling them; yes, your lyrics are spot-on, but it's just not something you could safely do in the States.
I think if they tried, the words wouldn't even be listened to - people would probably be offended at these foreigners thinking they know the history and connotations of that word. I do think they have a damn good understanding, but... no. Just, no.
