Hopefully your mother doesn’t read this blog, because we are about to talk about some ROCK music. Ok, this isn’t 40 years ago and rock doesn’t have the same “edge” as it used to. But that doesn’t mean we still can’t do some air guitar in the gym or on the road.

Same format:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Something Old

Artist: The Clash
Title: Should I Stay or Should I Go
Side Note: This song always makes me think of racing. It’s that moment when your legs feel REALLY good and you think that you could destroy your PR… not just beat it, but demolish it. It’s the battle of deciding when to kick it into another gear and GO. I tend to do this WAY to early in the race.
Quotable: “Darling you gotta let me know. Should I stay or should I go?”

Something Current

Artist: Neon Trees
Title: Everybody Talks
Side Note: I know this songs is played A LOT. But it always makes me think of The Strokes — have I said this before? Feel like I’ve shared this song before. I hope not. Maybe I’ve just seen it on other people’s lists. Possible. Guess that means it’s a good one.
Quotable: Hey baby won’t you look my way, I can be your new addiction

Something to Consider

Artist: Foo Fighters
Title: The Pretender
Side Note: Remember when they used to make silly videos in the 90s — the Mentos one? Heck, remember when Dave Grohl was with Nirvana? Ya, we are showing our age. I think there music has improved over time, but I could be alone on that island.
Quotable: “What if I say I will never surrender?”

There you have it: the devil’s music ROCK SONGS!

Here is a list of other PLAYLIST THURSDAY posts.
