Movies, music, cartoons, comics, food, and television. That's just the kind of stuff that keeps me up at night.
Under Pressure (Isolated Vocals) - Queen & David Bowie
I love a lot of bands, a lot of bands mean something different to me, but Queen will always be dearest to my heart.
They took risks musically and did it well. Their music will last forever and they also have the most epic song of all time. Queen got me through some tough times in my life, they were there when my heart was broken, they were there when I was happy, they were just always there.
I feel bad knowing that I didn’t get into them until they were no more. It tends to happen to me, especially since I’m a big fan of classic rock. Still, when I listen to them live I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to be there with the crowd. With Queen fans who are as hardcore as myself.
Listen to A Night at the Opera. It’s the greatest album ever.

In honor of it being April 20th, I thought it’s be fun to give you five songs that you should put on the stereo and relax to. (While high, of course.)
Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
We’ll start with one of the most epic songs of all time. When you’re listening make sure you follow the story of the song just as much as the music. If you’ve never listened to the story then you may find it to be a very interesting story of being trapped in a situation that you can’t get out of. Like murder. This song sounds even better if you listen to the entire Night at the Opera album.
London Dungeon by the Misfits
Inspired by events that happened to Glenn Danzig and Bobby Steele while they were staying in London. (They got in a fight with some skinheads and were thrown in jail.) The song is slower than most of the Misfits’ songs, but Danzig’s voice does a good job of encapsulating the dread and horror of being stuck in a jail cell. The bass stands out in this song as well, turn up the sound with this song on and enjoy yourself.
Sugar Magnolia by The Grateful Dead
While I’m not the biggest Grateful Dead fan out there, I can’t help but enjoy this song. It has the usual mix of happy lyrics, but I remember the first time I actually began to listen to the lyrics and realized how happy this song can make you. It’s just a song about how much a guy digs his old lady, but it’s so beautiful in its presentation that you can’t help but smile. Maybe this is why hippies listen to the Grateful Dead. It just makes you happy.
The Walk by The Cure
I wasn’t always a fan of the Cure, but recently I really began to like their work, especially their earlier material. This song is just a real treat to listen to. The synth part of the song comes in at just the right time and blows you away. I’m not 100% sure what the song is about, I’ve heard it was about a couple cheating on their partners, I’ve also heard it was about a man falling in love with a woman in a mental institution. Either way, it’s an awesome song.
A Bit of Finger/Sleeping Village/Warning by Black Sabbath
The final track on the album Black Sabbath, there are multiple layers to this song. A lot of it is just a bluesy jam played by Tony Iommi, but God damn, it rocks. Geezer, Ozzy, Tony and Bill are just killing it in this track. This song is actually a cover of a song by the band Crow. While not a lot of people bring up Black Sabbath’s first album that often, I find it to be one of their best. If you listen to this song then I advise you to listen to the entire album first, it’s totally worth it.
