The Dark Romance of P...

Red text below = linked text. Click to check stuff out!

Paralyzer ~ Finger Eleven

OK. I didn't first hear this song, I first saw the video, and... AoooooROOOOO!!!!! Boy, did it ever do it for me. Woofetie-woof-woof-WOOFIE-WOOF!!!!! This sleek bit of dance rock, with it's stylish video, has a firm hold on my libido, I have a Pavlovian response to it. Plus, it's just fun to rock out to. Also - if anyone knows the name of the lead male dancer, please let me know what it is. Ahem.



Paris (Ooh La La) ~ Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Kick-ass chick vocalist growlin' and gruntin' about how you're turning her on so bad she'd do all sorts of things for/to ya whilst another chick vamps out the funky bass. What's not to love? (The answer to that is - nothing.)

Damn, this performance of the tune's so hot, I feel like I need a towel after watching it. (Although I'm annoyed that the guitars were so loud, you could barely hear the bass.)

Promised You a Miracle ~ Simple Minds

Fellow writer/blogger Penelope Crowe recently encouraged writers to expose themselves through their work. That's what I'm doing by including this tune, believe it or not. It's my favorite, in the whole wide world of tuneage, and has been for...Lord, many, many moons, now. If it comes on the radio/Interwebs of a sudden, I have to drop whatever I'm doing to focus on it. I can make it repeat on my MP3 player throughout my whole commute home into the 'burbs from Manhattan and not tire of it. I have a number of hopes pinned upon this song - there's just something about it that strikes a prophetic chord in me. Promised You a Miracle holds a special place in my heart and soul, for its assertion that "...everything is possible in the game of life..." From your lips to God's ears, Jim Kerr.

  1. My, my, you are a slave to your hormones, drooling over that lead dancer... maybe his name is Fred Bloggs? You thinking of doing a bit o' stalking, eh?

    Kudos for Simple Minds :)

    PS: my pet name for you is now, 'goth-pie' :) - loving your musical selections, though some are not wholly to my taste, but the majority have been spot on.

    1. Haha, I had to look up "Fred Blogs." :-) In the US, we'd use John or Jane Doe. :-)

      And...um..."goth-pie?" That comes with chocolate sauce over it, right? (I don't know what I mean by that; I've had a day and I'm just wrecked.)

      Goth-pie...??? ;-)

  4. I've never heard of any of these songs. I'm glad I dropped by. I particularly like the Paralyzer one :)

  5. A surprisingly un-Gothic choice but I'd agree with you re Promised You a Miracle - I saw Simple Minds in concert err um a couple of years ago and this song was certainly one of the highlights...

    1. I know - I lamented over my failure to be 100% Goth in a recent post...I reckon I'm an alt rock/new wave/new romantic/goth mutt. And LUCKY YOU, getting to see Simple Minds in concert! I have trolled YouTube to find live footage of PYAM - it's interesting to see/hear how they vary it from show to show.

  6. I love that Simple Minds LP. I have the edition that came out that's gold & purple swirl in the vinyl, which is almost clear. It's really cool.

  7. Your libido has a Pavlovian response to a song? LOL! I guess the song is by Finger 11! Happy blogging on the challenge.

    1. Haha, I know...all I can say in my defense is that I've got a lot of Scorpio action in my natal chart. :-)
