Bloody Song

Found new good music today. I was listening to NU 107 hours ago when a song caught my attention. I was initially intrigued by the song’s beat and the vocalist’s deep, mysterious voice. The song is called “Fresh Blood” by Eels. I’ve never heard of this band before (or maybe I did I just couldn’t remember it) but apparently the song is from their latest album, Hombre Lobo.

I don’t know why but the song kind of reminds me of the HBO series, True Blood. It’s probably because of the song’s title and its catchy lyrics that goes, “I’m so tired of the same old crud/Sweet baby, I need fresh blood.” I can very well picture Bill Compton (the vampire in the show) saying this. The “same old crud” can be likened to the synthetic blood, a.k.a true blood, and fresh blood is of course the preference of all the vampires in Bon Temps.

There is some howling in the song too, which I think adds to its appeal. This is a perfect song to be played in True Blood. Maybe they can play this during a Fangtasia scene or while the always-humping Jason Stackhouse is out looking to get laid via bloody means.

What I Want is Pork and Beans

I like Weezer’s new song, “Pork and Beans” not only because of its catchy beat but also because of its lyrics. The song succinctly expresses what I’m feeling these days. Though the lyrics are quite amusing, it actually says a lot about doing the things that you love without other people telling you what you should do. The song also has an amusing video which features certain personalities like K-Fed and that You Tube girl who made a tearful plea to the papparrazzi to leave Britney alone. Anyway, I have no idea if the band actually loves pork and beans or whether they chose this certain dish for some reason.

Pork and Beans
(by Weezer)

They say I need some Rogaine to put in my hair
work it out at the gym to fit my underwear
Oakley makes the shades to transform a tool
You’d hate for the kids to think that you lost your cool

I’ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I’m fine and dandy with the me inside.
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think.

Everyone likes to dance to a happy song
With a catchy chorus and beat so they can sing along
Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the chart
Maybe if I work with him I can perfect the art

I’ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I’m fine and dandy with the me inside.
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think.

No, I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care

I’ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I’m fine and dandy with the me inside.
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think.

A Song for Today

Here’s one good song that I’ve been itching to listen to these past couple of weeks. It’s by an ’80s artist named Midge Ure. The song is called “Dear God.” I had a hard time looking for this song because I wasn’t so sure of the correct title (aside from the fact that this is one of those hard-to-find songs). I used to hear this song a lot during my high school and college days, back when I used to listen to radio shows that played Hits of the ’80s. Since then, it has become one of the new wave songs that I love listening to.

I really love this song because of its beat and also because of its meaningful lyrics. The song sends a powerful message, sort of like a wakeup call to everyone about what’s happening to our world today.

Check out its lyrics:

Dear God
(by Midge Ure)

Dear God, is there somebody out there?
Is there someone to hear my prayer?
I’m a simple man with simple words to say
Is there some point in asking?
Asking for more only got us where we are today
Lost and alone and afraid

Give me, love for the lonely
Give me, food for the hungry
Give me, peace in a restless world
Give me, hope for the children
Give me, a worldwide religion
Give me, peace in a restless world

Dear God, can you hear me crying?
A whole world crying
Looking for something to say
We had it all and we threw it all away
Is there somebody watching?
Somebody watching over the mess that we’ve made
We’re lost and alone and afraid

Give me, love for the lonely
Give me, food for the hungry
Give me, peace in a restless world
Give me, hope for the children
Give me, a worldwide religion
Give me, peace in a restless world

And we need to know there’s something good
Though all our years of solitude go on and on and on…
