    Default What single song best defines you....

    I am sitting here listening to some good tunes with an adult beverage, and I came up with an idea...

    If you had to pick one song only that defines, or says the most about who you are as a person, what would it be? Please post a video of the song being performed here if you can, or just the title only if you like. Hopefully this thread will be entertaining as well as perhaps a bit insightful, given the multiple personalities we have here on the forum...

    For me, it would be this....

    Garth Brooks's "Against the Grain". Wish I could find some video of it, but Garth would sue me. :shock:

    Some may think of this song as the theme from the truck commercial, but to me they words have alot of impact.

    Pink Floyd Fearless

    You say the hill's too steep to climb
    Climb it.
    You say you'd like to see me try
    Climbing.

    You pick the place and I'll choose the time
    And I'll climb
    That hill in my own way.
    Just wait a while for the right day.
    And as I rise above the tree lines and the clouds
    I look down, hearing the sound of the things you've said today.

    Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
    Smiling.
    Merciless the magistrate turns 'round
    Frowning
    And who's the fool who wears the crown?
    And go down,
    in your own way
    And every day is the right day
    And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow
    You look down; hear the sound of the faces in the crowd.
    all the best,
    mrh

    ^ No I'll have to check it out...

    Went and did google search- I'd forgotten all about that part. I remembered the Japanese guys in Kramer's drawers. Pretty funny stuff. My wife would say I relate to well when Desperado's playing.

    I can't think of a song that does that, primarily because I'm more of a music man than someone who listens to lyrics, if that makes sense. I have to like the tune before I even care about the words! Probably an outcome of what I do, as words are part of my living (so when I relax "I" don't want to hear "anyone" "thinking" or "speaking"!).

    Rather than a song, I would say there is a film that best describes my fears and hopes. One I am certain very very few have seen even though it is a Kurosawa film (because it is not one of his samurai films). But I "highly" recommend it. Rumor has it that Akira made this film to work himself out of a suicidal depression, (it is possible that this last piece of information is more legend than truth, but it certainly adds to the film's aura).

    The film is called "Ikiru" ("To Live"). And there is a little something for everyone in there and a lot of wisdom!

    Default Gwar - wharghoul!!!!




    I'm the ?ucking Whargoul, I'm the ghost of Minas Morgul
    I destroyed your life, I r&p3d your wife
    I am Whargoul, I am uncool, I am Whargoul
    I've been many faces, been many names
    Known love and hate until they were the same
    I bring ruin, I am Whargoul, am I human?
    They think that they know what I know
    They think they know what's best
    I think that's why they killed me, that's why I joined the SS
    In revenge for Malmedy, they used a blowtorch on me
    Nice try, Whargoul cannot die
    You blow off my arm I laugh at the pain
    And after the battle I feast on the slain
    Seeking my creator, taking from the strong
    Yes, you see I need your strength, so I can kill the wrong
    Seeking my creator, taking from the weak
    Yes, you see I need you, so I can snuff the meek
    Savor the silence - Whargoul
    Addicted to violence
    They used a bulldozer, to run my ass over
    Arms to the sky, 40,000 died, but I survived
    I don't care what flag that I choose, I don't care if I win or lose
    I don't care if you have to die, just fight without a side, never say die!
    Stalingrad 42, became a living tomb
    Yes, human souls
    Profit for the prophet and the creatures who control
    46 I got away, from the horrid thing that I did at Malmedy
    And though I gained strength at the time
    Still they call for vengeance for the hatred of my crime
    Then I tried to drink myself to death
    40 years went by, and drunken I was left
    And drunk I was when they caught me
    Gagged and bagged was right where they got me
    Taped to a chair feeling sore
    Knowing all the answers to the question I ignore
    They burned off my face with a propane torch
    Then they blew up my porch
    Then I fought against the USA, trapped in a trench till the bulldozers came
    Changed sides, and flew the bloody warthog
    Highway of death and the day of the dog
    And once again, I died alive, sent home in a box but somehow I survived
    Maybe you've got my face, I'm the demon of war
