What is Twisted Mixtape Tuesday? It’s the totally cool musical blog hop hosted by Jen of My Skewed View and Kristi of Finding Ninee. We’re wrapping up the decades of music these next couple of weeks-we’ve arrived in the 2000s.
Enter the millenium. Did you spend time preparing for Y2K? I was a little disappointed that nothing happened. I was hoping for at least a little glitch in electricity or something. Nope, nothing.
I wish I could say that the arrival of the 2000s was that simple for me. Not so much. Some pretty dark stuff had happened to me by this era, and the music I listened to was subsequently darker. If I had a bathtub that would actually cover my ladybits when I got in, I might have taken a few baths to deal with the stress…
We only have one more trip in our bathtub before our musical voyage through time is done. Tell Chandler to move over and climb in. Chicken and Diet Coke optional.
No Leaf Clover (2000) Metallica S&M
I surrender. Metallica and a symphony orchestra. I swear they made this CD just for me. This is my favorite song from this work of art. Agree or agree to disagree with love for this song, it’s a masterpiece.
Crawling (2001) Linkin Park Hybrid Theory
One of my very favorite bands. They’ve had what I would call more “experimental” music the last couple of years, but I still really like most of what they do. This is the first song I ever heard from them and it absolutely blew my socks off.
Prayer (2002) Disturbed Believe
A coworker of mine went to a Disturbed concert and got to go backstage and touch the lead singer. I had more of a story to go with this and now just can’t remember it…
Send the Pain Below-Chevelle (2003) Wonder What’s Next
Chevelle. There’s a band.
Bring Me To Life-Evanescence (2003) Fallen
This duet, like most of what you hear from Evanescence is amazing.
Seven Nation Army (2003) The White Stripes Elephant
Can’t stop watching, can you?
I Miss You (2004) Blink 182 Blink 182
Originally this song was written about The Nightmare Before Christmas. That’s pretty deep for a band that spent more time naked than clothed in their music videos.
A Message-Coldplay (2005) X&Y
Sooooo… Coldplay. There is something strangely addictive about this group. I have all of their CDs. I put one in and I just can’t stop listening… Everybody knows Coldplay, but not everyone knows this song.
Original Fire-Audioslave (2006) Revelations
Chris Cornell. Rock on. Nuff said.
Tarantula-Smashing Pumpkins (2007) Zeitgeist
Oh look, Sarah likes a Smashing Pumpkins song. Who would have guessed that?
The Crow and the Butterfly (2008) Shinedown The Sound of Madness
I’m not sure what it is about this song. It might be the minor key, or the vivid story that it paints. Whatevs, Shinedown is another one of those groups that could write a song about cardboard and I’d probably listen to it.
Had enough dark stuff? Hang on because we’re going to transition to laughs…
Welcome to the Humor Me Blog Hop where the fun is just beginning…
And you know what? I didn’t cohost last week, even though everyone thought I was, and I won! Well, it was a three way tie between three of us-me, Brian from MooGeek, and Rich from That’s Life…Sometimes! I got a fun button for it that I’ll try to get up somewhere lickety split!
Now for the rules. Rules? HA HA that’s funny! No, really, we have rules. They’re like directions. Yes males, you have to keep reading even though I called them directions!
