The nominees for the best/worst song that earwomed me in 2018 are:
– “Time to Kill” by Gentle Giant
– “Mass Hypnosis” by Sepultura
And a very unusual double feature of:
– “All Shook Up” by Elvis and “Get It On” by T. Rex
While waiting for our panel to review the nominees, sit back, relax and get ready to be SPARKLINGSTRUCK.
Some things in life are great. In fact they’re so great that one doesn’t even need to provide reasons for their greatness, because they are so great, that their unquestionable greatness is the reason.
Great things in life:
– Woolen socks
– “The Green Manalishi (With the Two Prong Crown)” by Fleetwood Mac
– Hot sauce of your choice
Tremolo, the guitar effect comes pretty close to this kind of greatness, but it’s not quite there. Yet. Time will tell.
Stuff that has something to accompany guitar with tremolo: VIA APPICE.
Those who know, know.
This is the “Why on earth I haven’t uploaded this track yet, although it’s been sitting on my hard drive for months now”-update of the year.
Reason this time: I still don’t know, man. Perhaps the time just hasn’t been right.
But hey, this time it is! KALEIDOSCOPE has some nice bells and twinkling and stuff, although it was not meant to be that christmassy.
On the last day of this month the next update shall be
One moviesque tune
Two parts were played
Three is a number…
…and so on.
I am friendly for the children, but bane of the drunk
I slip ‘n turn ‘n flow to the ground
I am made of glass and made of brass
Can you already guess who am I?
= THE MOANING
The rhythm of the main riff in the “Raining Blood” by Slayer is exactly the same as the famous theme from Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”!
Now, can it be a coincidence?
Of course it can, but I personally don’t think so. Power of the unconscious mind. Or just plain conscious.
Believe or not, I noticed the similarities myself, several years ago. Apparently the fine people of the internets have made the same observation. Good for us.
THREE SIDES IN EVERY TURN is the name of the game today. I couldn’t think of anything special to say about it, so unrelated words to the rescue!
Here it is, konganos pretty darn official X-mas tune of 2018:
YULE IS NOT GETTING OLD.
And there it was.
It has this Christmas magic thingy going on. You know, staring at a snow globe & gasping in amazement, smell of cinnamon & pine, toys come to life at night, kind of magic thingy.
That’s it. Happy December, folks!
What’s the funniest joke in the world?
I dunno about you, but in my opinion the best family of jokes are the ones only you can possibly understand. You know, the kind of jokes which are never spoken aloud. Running gags of the mind, that are sometimes very hard, if not impossible to transcript into any known human language.
You must know what I’m talking about, and you probably have a whole bunch of those.
Here’s one of mine: “Hey, it’s almost done!”
As in, LOOSE TRUCE was almost done.
And now it is.
Sarcasm – zero (0).
You know it’s going to be a fine day you’ve got Cheap Trick playing in your head when you wake up.
Yeah, I woke up feeling the energetic beat & catchy melody of “Dream Police”. Following that, coffee was hot, the air was cool, I didn’t mind, and I quite enjoyed the morning.
My contribution for the world that day was AINT BAD AT ALL.
Sarcasm – normal (5).
Every time I’m about to name a tune, I check a few things:
1) Does a song of the same title already exist?
– If so, is the title too used or is there a room for one more?
2) Spell check.
– Perhaps misstype mine in a funny way?
3) If made up words are used, check if the word(s) in question actually mean horrible profanities in language I know nothing about.
– If so, change the title.
What I just googled was “two become one”. It turns out, there’s at least two songs of the same name. One by Jewel and another by Spice Girls.
Spice Girls. Now those ladies always made me smile in the 90’s and they still do today. Gal force!
Decision time: I’m not gonna go with “two become one”. CnB is fine. It’s about two becoming one. No lyrics needed.
Oh yeah, and it’s got nothing to do with the Czech National Bank.
Elevator music. Massage therapy music. Pumping iron music. Getting a haircut music. Greek restaurant music. Depressing music.
Supermarket music. Concrete music. Animal noises mixed in music. It used to be cool music. Carrying a backpack music. Song stuck on repeat in a steak house without anyone noticing it music. Only professional critics dig it music. Walking the streets of New York in a white suit music. You tell people you like it, although you don’t, music. Distant, unrecognizable music.
