Category Archives: Song of the Week
A quick glance at what we are listening to during a given time period. This was formerly Song of the Day, but has changed to Song of the Week.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been inundated with new music or at least music that is new to me. I haven’t had a chance to dig back into my library to listen to anything classic or even just slightly old. So, for this week’s song let’s see what I can find…
Ok I am going back quite a ways for the Scorpions. I believe this may be the first time they have ever graced our song or video of the week. I always thought they were cool and unfortunately never saw them live and doubt I will ever have that chance, but you never know.
No One Like You was released on the Scorpion’s album Blackout in 1982 which is probably one of their biggest albums of all time. Of course, they were formed before I was ever born so I am not fully aware of their impact prior to the 1970s. Needless to say, I was into this band growing up and have to give them credit for my overall direction in metal that landed me where I am today. No regrets! Enjoy your Song of the Week even if you don’t see it till Thursday. I have been completely sidetracked playing Bioshock Infinite. I hope you understand
Today’s song of the week was selected at random. The self-titled album from Danzig was the first album I got into from the dark and mysterious one. It was out quite a while before I was exposed to it, but I thought it was pretty cool and different from what I was listening to at the time. I haven’t listened to or followed Danzig for many years. After having a dose of it today, this album held up well over the years. The New Jersey quartet formed in 1987 and today still make music. They have released nine studio albums with their latest release in 2010. Here is your song of the week. Have a great hump day!
