I have this method of ranking music in my library, which currently consists of 34,968 songs: By default, all new songs in my library get ⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I listen to them, I sort them as follows: ⭐️ means it’s “rubbish” (as Dr. Spo would say) and I’ll probably delete it from the library, ⭐️⭐️ means it’s just “meh” but I’ll probably keep it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️ means it’s okay and we will probably talk over it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I really like and may potentially sing at random, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means everyone better shut the fuck up because my song is on! You know the kind of songs I’m talking about. We all have them.
These are mine, one post at a time.
I’m starting my approach to this with songs I’ve given ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to in iTunes. There’s only 90 of them at the moment. I’ll probably sneak in an occasional ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as well.
And for this month, we–meaning Blobby and me–are doing songs that make you want to stop what you’re doing and get up and shake your tail feathers! Blobby allowed me to pick this month, and that was the first thing that popped into my head.
I’m sure I’m going to Hell for this selection, but I really do love this song. I love most of the album it is on as well.
I’ve been a fan of Big & Rich (as a duo), and then Big Kenny’s solo stuff as well, for as long as I can remember. Okay, maybe that’s 11 years or so, but I’m lucky to remember where I parked the car today. If you can get a hold of any of Big Kenny’s stuff (or find it on YouTube, especially his “Live a Little” album), it’s totally worth the listen. Trust me on this.
I don’t know about in your neck of the woods, but this song got a LOT of radio play when it came out in 2004. And yet, I still like it, and want to shake my booty when it plays (just ask the Husbear). There are a few dance mixes of it out there that are pretty darn good, but the original is just as shake your booty worthy.
I give you Big & Rich’s “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)”:
Until next time...
