A Music Blog (#7: Happy Birthday, Alice)

So I was already decided on what to do for the next one but then I realised today is Alice Cooper's birthday! More than reason enough to do a song by him.

I do this because I think he's a pretty cool guy; did some entertaining shows when he was in his prime, some good songs, and also has his own radio program (Nights with Alice Cooper), which luckily airs here in Australia land even though he records it in Arizona. Imo his show is one of if not the best segments on the radio here......

A Music Blog (#6: Get away already!)

So this is a band I'll probably feature a few times. I'll blame my dad because he is a huge fan of them and so by proxy I am now too. =p

Everyone knows Led Zeppelin, right? Stairway to Heaven is NOT the song I'll do though as people already know that I imagine, and a few others like Mad Dog... so here's a favourite of mine that doesn't get airplay over here on the radio! (If this does play where you live on the radio then I am jealous). Note there's another reason I'm picking this...

A Music Blog (#5: Screw you, George)

And back to a song within the last decade! =p Another Australian musician in Pete Murray, and another song not played on the radio (or leastways the ones I've listened too... they *do* like Pete Murray over here, only they only seem like a few select songs of his which they play too often at times).


Alternate link!

Lyrics!
Spoiler:
People
This is what I say tonight
Messed up
After that I'm much too bright
You all just sit here smiling

A Music Blog (#4: The best darn walk)

This song is featured today because of Andy. (Or well, I mentioned the song, he demanded it be used for this blog, and I agreed). This is not a bad thing because this is a darn catchy song by a bunch of Mamas and Papas.


That's right, California Dreamin'. (ON SUCH A WINTER'S DAAAAAAAAAY!)

Also a live version which sounds remarkably similar. Worth watching for the dancers that appear halfway through! You will not regret it. =p

Lyrics!...

A Music Blog (#3: Obscure Chiptune! Hooray!)

Posted January 16th, 2012 at 4:07 AM by bobandbill (The Ranting Drunk's Ramblings)

Seeing I made a point to mention that I'll probably feature older songs a fair bit in the previous entry, I'll use this show to show that game music will also feature! But this tune is obscure... so I'm interested to hear if a) you know of the game at all, and b) if you heard of the song if so. Why b)? Because this song was unused in the game bar for sound test options! Which is strange because imo it's the best song from the game!

The game is Gimmick! for the NES, which has you playing...
