Time to burn a new music CD to play in the car. The following tunes are resonating with me at the moment.
Alice Cooper’s “Cleansed By Fire”:
First time watching that particular fan-made video to accompany the song.
You told me that nothing’s free except my own insanity…
Loved that song since first becoming acquainted with it in the mid-’90s thanks to a boy I was dating at the time. Further proof that at least a few good things do spring even out of shitty situations. Only learned last year that it was an Alice Cooper song, having had it lodged in the back of my mind all these years.
Next up, Sugarloaf’s “Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You”:
“Ain’t No Grave” by the legendary Mr. Johnny Cash:
Never tire of watching that art compilation either.
Enigma’s “Age of Loneliness (Carly’s Song)”:
Been a fan of that song since first hearing and purchasing the “Sliver” movie soundtrack in the early ’90s. The lyrics imprinted on my psyche and have since become a sort of mantra for me. “Life is crazy, life is mad. Don’t be afraid.” Repeats in my mind nearly daily in recent years.
Led Zeppelin’s “Bron-Y-Aur Stomp”:
Nevermind that. Perhaps I’ll just load that Zeppelin III album into one of the other slots, replacing the Pantera album that’s been in there far too long anyway (and needs to be returned to who I borrowed it from).
Thinking I need some AC/DC tunes up in this instead. Starting with “The Jack”:
AC/DC – “If You Want Blood (You Got It)”:
AC/DC’s “Live Wire”:
Need to make a separate compilation CD for favorite AC/DC songs alone. Will get around to that another day…
Let’s toss in King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man”:
And “Stranglehold” by Ted Nugent:
Never tire of that tune.
Not sure how many of these will wind up fitting on the disc, but let’s add some Tom Petty for good measure. “Don’t Come Around Here No More”:
And also maybe “Aerials” by System Of A Down:
Feeling the need to also include Metallica’s “Sad But True”:
