Music Monday: Machine Head – Catharsis

This is a weekly meme I’ve picked up from Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s very simple, you pick a song on a Monday and share it! Never one to turn away from the chance to share my exquisite taste in music I’m loving taking part in this every week, so thanks, Drew!

As you read this I’m flying up the motorway towards Nottingham so that I can meet one of my internet pals and go see Machine Head with him. Machine Head is by far one of my favourite bands and there are a list of songs as long as my arm I could share with you but I’m going with the title track from their latest album Catharsis today. Please don’t speak to me tomorrow I will have a gig hangover.

Did I mention that I’m meeting up with James Cudney from This is My Truth Now? Well, it’s happening this week he arrives tomorrow then on Weds we get together and spend the rest of the week driving London crazy! In honour of this madness I invited him to choose today’s song and he chose a 90’s classic Closer by Nine Inch Nails in honour of us bringing our friendship closer! Enjoy and see you next week!

I’ve talked about living in Greece a few times and I’ve shared my favourite Greek metal band. This is my favourite Greek artist of the more traditional flavour. I guess he would be classed as Greek pop but as you will tell it’s not very pop, but neither is it old school traditional. the artist is Michalis Hatzigiannis and the song title is Plai Plai which translates to Side by Side.

 

Music Monday: The Human Radio by Shinedown

I have a bit of a thing for Shinedown, this is their latest release and it has such an impressive bass line. Not what normally stands out to me but I love it! It’s also got great lyrics and the girl in the video has a tattoo to die for! Hoping for a tour from these guys later this year.

I gotta four-letter word, but I don’t care
A whole lotta drive, to get me there
I’ve seen a whole lotta wrong, to say the least
Spent a whole lotta time, staring down the beast

Keep moving subject, matter around
Keep your eye on the prize and your feet on the ground
Keep moving subject, matter around
Keep your eye on the prize and your feet on the ground
Keep your eye on the prize and your feet on the ground
Keep your eye on the prize and your feet on the ground

I’m reaching out to the human radio
Taking a chop on ’em, I reach hard on ’em
Get the money, throw the tantrum
The human radio is playing your anthem

The human radio is playing your anthem
The human radio is playing your anthem
The human radio is

I got a handful of friends, that can’t be bought
If you tell ’em you’re the king, you’re probably not
Got a brand new approach, and I ain’t done
I’m the master of machines, a bullet on the run

Keep moving subject, matter around
Keep your eye on the prize and your feet on the ground
Keep moving subject, matter around
Keep your eye on the prize and your feet on the ground
Keep your eye on the prize and your feet on the ground

I’m reaching out to the human radio
Taking a chop on ’em, I reach hard on ’em
Get the money, throw the tantrum
The human radio is playing your anthem

We watch, we fight, we live
We sleep without a care
We want the world to know
We are the human radio
We watch, we fight, we live
We sleep without a care
We want the world to know
We are the human radio

The human radio is playing your anthem
The human radio is

Radio

I’m reaching out to the human radio
Taking a chop on ’em, I reach hard on ’em
(Get the chop on ’em, get the chop on ’em)
Get the money, throw the tantrum
(Get the money, get the money)
The human radio is playing your anthem

We watch, we fight, we live
We sleep without a care
We want the world to know
We are the human radio
We watch, we fight, we live
We sleep without a care
We want the world to know
We are the human radio
We watch, we fight, we live
We sleep without a care
We want the world to know
We are the human radio
We watch, we fight, we live
We sleep without a care
We want the world to know
We are the human radio

It’s fair to say Hubs and I disagree on a lot of music…but when he played me this from his blippy bloppy music collection (blippy bloppy being the name I use to describe his appalling dance music) I couldn’t stop laughing. Listen closely because there are actually some really funny moments in this track.

Music Monday: Wanted Dead or Alive by Corey Taylor and Jensen Ackles

This is a weekly meme I’ve picked up from Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s very simple, you pick a song on a Monday and share it! Never one to turn away from the chance to share my exquisite taste in music I’m loving taking part in this every week, so thanks, Drew!

So this is a mash up and a half and for me perfection…

I think there are few women who are immune to the Jensen Ackles affect…

I also have the hugest (and I mean HUGEST) thing for Corey Taylor…he is a rock GOD in my eyes.

So smush them together singing one of my favourite Bon Jovi songs and I can feel my panties melting…yeah sorry for that visual guys! but seriously this is so good!

It’s all the same, only the names will change
Everyday, it seems we’re wastin’ away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I drive all night just to get back home
I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive
Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it’s not for days
The people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when you’re all alone all you do is think
I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted (wanted) dead or alive
Wanted (wanted) dead or alive
Oh, and I ride
Oh, and I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted dead or alive
I walk these streets
A loaded six-string on my back
I play for keeps ’cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still, I’m standing tall
I’ve seen a million faces
And I’ve rocked them all
I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted (wanted) dead or alive
I’m a cowboy, I got the night on my side
I’m wanted (wanted) dead or alive
And I ride, dead or alive
I still drive (I still drive) dead or alive
Dead or alive, dead or alive, dead or alive, dead or alive
