Music soothes the savage beast

This is the challenge prompt that shows you just how crazy my musical tastes are. Its also bringing us closer to the ends and making me increasingly more anxious. I think I need to discipline of daily topics. Maybe you should leave me a list of topics you want me to write about in the comment area.

This band is AWESOME! I've seen them live 3 times and would see them a million more except that they mainly tour out of the US. Its sad, it breaks my heart, but what can you do. The song I chose of their is an original of theirs (they are known for doing rockgrass versions of popular songs like Dirty Deeds. Look them up. I think they are amazing. More favorites of mine, that are originals of theirs are the Rider song and Alien Abduction Probe.
I shamelessly took this from their website. Which you should visit
I'm Keepin' Yer Poop in a Jar by Hayseed Dixie on Grooveshark

Next is the Goo Goo Dolls. I saw them in concert so  long ago I don't even want to talk about it. I can decide if this is my favorite or if Iris is. Either way. I adore them.
I Wanna Wake Up Where You Are by GooGoo Dolls on Grooveshark
If you know me you know I LOVE Metallica. I despise St. Anger and refuse to listen to it, but everyone can be forgiven a crappy album. I wish I could list all the songs that are my faves but that would take too much time. Lets just say Fade to Black and Nothing Else Matters will be played at my funeral unless someone wants haunted. This song I actually use to sing to the girlies when they were babies. I would make it sounds sweet instead of evil.
Enter Sandman by Metallica on Grooveshark
When I was a freshmen this guy that looked just like Anthony Kiedis pierced my ear. Never mind it couldn't be him because this was the 90's and I am pretty sure they were in LA making music and not hanging out in dorm rooms piercing ears. Yeah I know letting a strange rock star pierce my ear was stupid, but what can I say. It was the Chili Peppers.

Give It Away by Red Hot Chili Peppers on Grooveshark
Which I guess is not really music I like rather its an interesting story about a hole in my ear.

Last but not least. How can I have a list without The Man in Black on it. I LOVE Johnny Cash. I don't think he did anything I didn't at least like, but usually LOVE. When Heidi Newfield had the song Johnny and June I totally related. I love them. Is that enough loves?
  Cocaine Blues by Johnny Cash on Grooveshark


  1. That Johnny Cash is something else <3

  2. I despise st.anger too! but i love metallica :) I am keeping your poop in a jar has me cracking up here...I need this song.

    I love me some Johnny Cash too.

    1. First time I took my sister to a concert of theirs, I told her she would love the poop song. She looked at me like I was crazy. At the concert, a chant of POOP started. She looked at me like she was going to kill me for subjecting her to such stupidity. Then the song started and she was hooked.

  3. Enter Sandman is the Iowa song :) What they play when they come on the field. Needless to say, I'm a fan!

  4. GooGoo Dolls! You speak my language! :D
