I'm not one for listening to melancholy songs when I have the blues. I prefer to blow the blues right out of my head with rock 'n' roll. Maybe that's because I do anger much better than I do sad. So, even though I have a feeling Callum would have preferred ABBA and The Carpenters to anything in this selection of tunes, I have pulled out all the stops for this week's Loud Friday mash up. It's a Detroit special and the emphasis is definitely on the noisy. My favourite is the Iggy Pop tune, "Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell," known nowadays as "The Sarah Palin Song."

LOUD FRIDAY — 8 Comments

  1. It’s possible that your favorite may not be Callum’s favorite. Of course, I could be wrong.

    Is Sarah Palin really pretty? I can’t see it. Perhaps it’s because I’m old school, and “Pretty is as pretty does” still applies. The mens around me think she’s pretty, even though they don’t like her.

  2. This video has a good song on it for Loud Fridays, but language not safe for work; it’s called “Die MF Die” by Dope. These 2 United States Marines are jamming out to it in their humvee.

    Great song to blow off steam to, though.

  3. Ah, luv, when will you post music for me, me, me? It’s been a long, long time. I know this is your time for grieving for the noble Callum, and I know I’m a demanding woman, but still…. You might be pleasantly surprised by how soothing my kind of music will be for you.

  4. PS: What I wrote in my previous comment was in the joshing spirit of your comment about the cylinders and not meant to be critical. I’m feeling quite tender towards you and Jane at the moment and wished rather to give you a smile, rather than to criticize.
