Hallelujah I Love Her So

Composed and recorded in 1956, this rhythmic and bluesy ode to love predates the success the wonderful Ray Charles would see in the later years.

It’s joyful, uplifting, and clocks in at over five minutes; more than enough time to confess love for someone.

C’mon Ray.  Quit showboating.

Say You’ll Be There

Here’s a catchy pop tune for all the boys and girls!  If you ever thought to yourself that you needed a tune to be lovingly ambiguous and drawn out (never-the-less well put together), then boy-howdy do I have a song for you!

From their debut album Spice, this mid-nineties song made it high up the charts until people put the lyrics under some scrutiny for being ‘confusing’.

Said David Browne (from the established magazine Entertainment Weekly)

 …let’s see: She wants to be friends, he wants more, and yet she croons, ‘I’m giving you everything/All that joy can bring’? She’s as confused as I am. Better to revel in the delectably frothy girl-group melody…

But, if living through the memories of the 90’s bores you in an audible fashion, watch this and tell me if you feel better about this boob.  I mean breasts.  I mean song.

It was said to be inspired by Pulp Fiction and a 1965 exploitation film entitled Faster, Pussycat!  Kill!  Kill!  I don’t know about you, but I got two totally different vibes from each scene.

Darwin, Jesus, the Devil and Me

Here’s a song, brought to you from the Finnish singer Damion Suomi.

It’s an emotional song (well, the quite frank, the whole album is emotional) and it brings to light a whole ‘love/hate’ thing going on with Damion, life, and religion.  Well, there’s also some love/late towards women too, but what’s love if not one big war?

A war with mutual benefits.

Awake

You know, there is an inherent annoyance when getting you music offline.  I  got this song back when I thought P2P servers were cool so when someone labeled this a collaboration song featuring Disturbed, Static-X, and Slipknot, I said “Hell yeah, bring on da collab!”

I had no idea how to talk back then, either.

No, as it turned out, this song is by a band called The Clay People.  They’ve done industrial rock, synthetic rock, regular rock… granite rock? and have had an on-again/off-again relationship for years now.

If this sounds familiar to you but you’ve seen it with a different packaging, then maybe you’ve seen the movie, Universal Solider.

Or maybe you’re all like, “Hell yeah, bring on da rock, yo!”
