More Notes on 500 songs (cont.)

Entertainment, music

Well I had to make the playlist for the Halloween party so I put my listening odessy on hold for a while. I’ll be continuing this week sometime. I’m having a bit of trouble with my computer being dead at work, so I should have some free time.

But before all this I did finish up to #172, here’s some notes transcribed from a yellow post-it.

#146. B-52s – Rock Lobster

The music is so good, plus the lyrics make it extra… creepy. But it’s way too long, wears thin.

#147. Iggy Pop – Lust for Life

Carnival Cruise Lines! But they must leave out the lyrics “I’m gonna beat my brains with liquor and drugs” but if they said “Liquor and food” they might have an accurate description

#151. The Penguins – Earth Angel

Marty McFly had a much better version with Marvin Berry and the Starlighters

#155. Creedence Clearwater Revival – Proud Mary

This song makes me want to roll, roll, roll down the river. or perhaps watch Forrest Gump.

#160. Public Enemy – Fight the Power

Does the original always have to be the best? Cause the Anthrax/PE version is 100 times better than this.

#166. Eminem – Lose Yourself

If you don’t think this song belongs in the top 500, you are insane crasy. The beat alone deserved it, plus it WON an OSCAR.

#172. Areosmith – Dream On

This dosen’t even sound like Steven Tyler. along with “Paint it Black” by the Rolloing Stones, it makes you realize how much they suck now… or why they were considered good at one time.
