I think after this week’s Music Monday I need something not awful to cleanse my senses. I sat through an hour of awful anime just because I knew it had a couple of scenes which might be of interest to you guys, simply because the video for a song I dislike had something that reminded me of it. So, music is to blame for me feeling awful so I say it should be music to make me feel better. How about we build a “WAMmer’s Playlist” of sorts? Two flavours: One of songs which evoke WAM in some way, one of song titles reworked into messy puns.
The first song for the first list is a song by Green Day (a decent messy band name in itself), from the second of their recent album trilogy, “¡Dos!”. This track is called “Wow! That’s Loud” and features a few lines which I’m sure weren’t intended to allude to WAM or sploshing in any way but I can’t help re-interpreting as such.
Smell your technicolour in your eyes
Makes me sick with pleasure in my mind
…You’re such a beautiful mess tonight
Wow that dirty dress is so loud
Also, male WAM fans might want to check out the video for “American Idiot”.
The second one is of course, AC/DC’s “Cover You In Oil”.
As for the second list:
PSY: Gunge ‘Em Style
In This Moment: The Gunge Show
The Beautiful South: A Little Slime
Metallica: Nothing Else Splatters
