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.
Blobby asked/let me pick out a theme for his “My Music Monday” this month. So I picked songs about drinking. To add a little twist, I said no country songs. As he’s doing this, I’ll go with the same theme. And I’m going to self-rule out Jimmy Buffett songs. I don’t feel that Jimmy Buffett is country music, but since a majority of his songs are about drinking… it’s just too easy. 😉
I’m posting this late, as the Husbear and I were road tripping last week, and the limited Internet access we had was, well, limited.
1986. Let’s see… I was 13. I had ZERO idea what being gambrinous meant then. But this song hit the airwaves and I loved it. It was a few more years before I found out what Brass Monkey was. And then the song made sense. Not that I ever have wanted to try malt liquor and O.J. *shudder*
I actually have this song listed as ⭐️⭐️⭐️ in my library, but I still hear this song on occasion and it makes me smile. Maybe because it reminds me of a more innocent moment in my life. Or maybe because it just has a good beat.
I present Beastie Boys’ “Brass Monkey”:
Until next time...
