Music Monday #3

This week has been a weird one for music. I’ve been listening to AFI almost non stop- where’s the change there- but it’s been pretty much metal, metal METAL otherwise.

Oh, and show tunes.

1. AFI- Deep Slow Panic

I’ve still got Burials on repeat- can’t say enough how much I love that album. This is a really lovely song, the lyrics are really bittersweet and again sort of sum up my mental state.

2. Iron Maiden- Can I Play With Madness

Can’t go wrong with a bit of Maiden! This song, incidentally, is a brilliant ‘running’ song. I flew down the section of my running route when this came on in my playlist, it’s just amazing and it’s surprisingly fun to air-guitar along to as you run.

3. Cradle of Filth- Mannequin

Cradle are one of my favourite bands. I’ll probably get lynched for saying this, but I find them and Dimmu Borgir pretty similar and the two of those bands are constantly vying for a spot on my Top 5/10 favourite bands list. Maybe it’s because their new album Hammer of The Witches is out next Friday,  but Cradle are currently winning. This song is a beaut.

4. Turisas- To Holmgard and Beyond

Turisas, however, are a permanent fixture on my favourites list. They’re just… they’re perfect, and they’re one of the best bands I have ever seen live (and I’ve seen them twice!). This is another song on my running list that just made the struggle I was having melt away temporarily into joy as I listened to this awesomeness. Running across a field and shouting “Rather sold as a slave to the Saracens than chained to your bed, chained by your life!” at a load of startled horses is quite a good way to spend a morning.

5. Beauty and the Beast Original Broadway Cast- If I Can’t Love Her

And here’s the show tune! I was having a mammoth chat about Beauty and the Beast with a friend the other day and for the rest of the evening I just listened to this over and over. It’s such a beautiful song; you can hear the pain in the Beast’s voice as he sings, so poignant and just ugh. This is one of my favourite songs of all time so I never tire of hearing it (… and singing along to every single word.)
