Screw it. Time for some tunes.

Spring is finally here, a little earlier than expected. Got up to 68 degrees (F) today, which is a major shift from being in the teens last week. Gotta love the chaotic Midwest.  tongue_out  But we’ll take it…at least until the next snow storm ruins our fun.

Would be nice to have a true 45-degree-tapering-up spring once in a while though…

So, let’s see what I’ve posted on my YT channel recently:

That was “In the Flesh” by Pink Floyd.

Here’s another goodie by The Rolling Stones, “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”:

LOVE that tune. Particularly the opening guitar riff.

Next up, “Tonite Is a Special Nite (Kaos Mass Confusion Mix)” by Tricky vs. Gravediggaz:

That one managed to grow on me over time. As did the following…

Case in point, “Lil’ Boots” by Pet:

“Naked Cousin” by PJ Harvey:

“Gold Dust Woman” by Hole:

Filter’s “Jurassitol”:

“Shelf Life” by Seven Mary Three:

“I Wanna Be Your Dog” by Iggy Pop:

Here’s a disturbing tune, “Sean Olson” by Korn:

Thanks to The Crow: City of Angels soundtrack for turning me on to most of those tunes.

Here’s one I’ve enjoyed right out the gate and in its own right back in the ’90s:

That was “Hey Man, Nice Shot” by Filter.

Here’s another I instantly loved back then:

That was “Beautiful People” by Marilyn Manson.

And another, “Sweet Dreams” by Marilyn Manson:

Enjoyed the Eurythmics original version as well.

Another I’ve adored since my teen years — “Grease Paint & Monkey Brains” by White Zombie:

This became one of my favorite long-distance driving tunes in the early 2000s — “Powertrip” by Monster Magnet:

Who’s gonna teach you how to dance?
Who’s gonna show you how to fly?
Who’s gonna call you on the lame dope smoking
Slacking little sucker you are?

Who’s gonna get you from behind?
Who’s gonna ring your little bell?
Who’s gonna con you into buying
A television set revolution they sell? . . .


One of the my long-time personal favorites (and a GREAT driving song) for well over a decade — “I Stand Alone” by Jackyl:

Here’s another I love, set to some South-bound driving footage — “Ride With Yourself” by Rhino Bucket:

. . .  Walk like a lady, talking like a man
You say that you’re a princess but they call you a madame

Take a long, long ride with yourself
Do you like the company?
Take a long, long ride with yourself
Do you like what you see? . . .

. . . You say that you’re discrete
But you’re makin’ too much noise . . .


Another goodie, “Raise A Little Hell” by Trooper:

Love the artwork for that one.

For the record, in case anyone is wondering, the reason my music videos are sometimes monetized is due to the record companies who claim rights over them. That has nothing to do with me and I am not compensated in any way. I just post them because the tunes strike me as interesting and worth sharing, that be it.
