Big Music Friday: More Bang for the Buck

Going with a theme this week - kudos to the first person who picks up on it.
  1. "Come Together" - The Beatles
  2. "1812 Overture" - Tchaikovksy, especially the performace pictured here
  3. "Po' Lazurus" - The Fairfield Four
  4. "Bohemian Rhapsody" - Queen
  5. "It Was a Good Day" - Ice Cube
  6. "Whisky In a Jar" - Metallica (I have both the Thin Lizzy and traditional Irish versions, but something about James Hetfield singing "Mush a ring dum a doo dum a da" does it for me.)
  7. "Folsom Prison Blues" - Johnny Cash
  8. "You Give Love a Bad Name" - Bon Jovi
  9. "Hey Joe" - Jimi Hendrix
  10. Video Jeopardy: "Freak on a Leash" - Korn

Bonus: If you haven't got it yet, how about

  • "Pistol Grip Pump" - Rage Against the Machine (I don't have the original on the iPod, so you get the RATM.)
  • "Shotgun" - Junior Walker and the All-Stars.

I love that Renegades CD—especially 'Pistol Grip Pump' and 'Renegades of Funk.' Alas, I think that disc was left in the CD player of the car I donated a couple years back. I just fondle the empty jewel box on occasion now...

Here's my list (no theme, just random off the iPod):

1. "All Wrong" - Morphine
2. "Closer" - The Firm
3. "Two Princes" - Spin Doctors
4. "Sexual Healing" - Soul Asylum
5. "Mockingbirds" - Grant Lee Buffalo
6. "Xanadu'" - Rush
7. "Bring It On Home" - Zeppelin
8. "Naveed" - Our Lady Peace
9. "Only Talking Sense" - Finn Brothers
10. "Moonlight Mile" - Rolling Stones

Commentary back at my place.

Just want to add, Pooh, I've lurked here before, but don't think I've ever commented. Well, I came back the other day after a particularly strong showing by you over at Cole's, and I wasted a good hour at work scrolling through your blog. Great stuff. Consider me a regular now...

Cool, thanks bud. If I reach one child a day, I've clearly been slacking off too much at work.

Well if the theme is what I think it is then you can add, Kirsty MacColl's Can't Stop Killing You, also speaking about The Bride how does this song not make the list?
