Song of the Immediate Future: Take Off

More than proficient…

Alright.  This is gonna be my last reference to Christmas 2011.  Last one, I swear!  After this, I’m done.  We’ll close the books on Christmas once and for all!  Besides, it’s only a passing reference.  So don’t get your silky, sexy, black panties in a knot, ok?

Sometime during the weeks leading up to Christmas last year, I heard Bob and Doug Mackenzie’s “12 Days of Christmas.” Man! I loved that song as a kid.  And hearing it over the holidays, totally reminded me of the summer of 83.  When The Pope and I watched the movie Strange Brew at my grandmother’s house at least 50 million times.  I shit you not.  We watched that movie so much we knew the dialogue backwards and forwards.

Song(s) of the Immediate Future: Xmas edition

song of the immediate future xmas  Randy_Quaid_Cousin_Eddie

With all the Christmas music on the radio, I figured it was a good time for me to pile on the Christmas insanity bandwagon and trot out the ol’ “Song of the Immediate Future.”  The thing is, I really couldn’t single out just one Christmas song.  Much to my chagrin surprise, there were actually a few Christmas songs that I liked.  I know.  I know.  I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking: “I bet at least one song involves Justin Beiber.”  How bout this…go cram it with walnuts, if that’s what you’re thinking!  Do I look like a love starved school girl?  Don’t answer that.  You know, before this turns any uglier, how‘s about we get right to the songs?

Song of the Week: Lies of the Beautiful People

song of the week lies of the beautiful people sixx am
I feel so traumatized
Doped up and televised
Life can be cruel and insane
But we’ve got these ugly scars
On our infected hearts
Maybe it’s time for a change
I don’t know what’s wrong with music today.  Where is all the rock?  Yea…you know and I know that I grew up on metal.  Hair metal, to be exact.  I say it loud.  I say it proud. I say it softly and when no one is around.  Because, quite frankly, it’s embarrassing.  Saying you like Metal these days is like saying you like hippies and Disco, well…whatever decade you live in.  ‘Cause no one likes hippies or Disco.  I mean, thank god for the Foo Fighters, cause if it weren’t for them, where would we be?

Song of the Week: Calling Dr. Love

song of the week dr love kiss
You need my love baby, oh so bad
You’re not the only one I’ve ever had
And if I say I wanna set you free
Don’t you know you’ll be in misery
They call me (Dr. Love)
They call me Dr. Love (calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure you’re thinkin’ of (calling Dr. Love)
“Calling Dr. Love” by Kiss
When I talk about myself (which is one of my favorite pastimes, as if you couldn’t tell) I like to say I was a kid in the 70’s, but I grew up in the 80’s.  I say it here because I was never a fan of 70’s Kiss.  What do you want from me?  I was a stupid kid.  All’s that concerned me at the time were cartoons and toys.  Like anything has changed since then.
