"Easy" by The Commodores.

It makes me think of breakfast, the greatest meal ever conceived. Its about not caving in to outside pressure and being yourself -- freedom. Probably the most baller song ever written.

For me, my theme song depends on the mood I'm in.

So if I'm in a good mood, it's Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen. It's basically about leaving your dead-end town and taking your girl with you. They know they have to leave otherwise their lives are destined to be the same meaningless blob that everyone else lives. They want to run away and leave it all behind! It always puts me in a good mood. The song is just full of power, emotion and optimism. All the automotive references don't hurt either! It was written when Bruce was about my age so I can understand his point of view.

In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway American dream
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected and steppin' out over the line
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
We gotta get out while we're young
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run


If I'm in a down mood, the theme song is Deacon Blues by Steely Dan. Aside from being incredibly cool and relaxed, it came out two years after Born To Run did ('77 v. '75). Now, Steely Dan's lyrics generally tend to be very obscure and hard to understand, but from what I can tell, this song is about someone wanting a better life than they currently have. The chorus goes "They got a name for the winners in the world, I want a name when I lose, they call Alabama the Crimson Tide, call me Deacon Blues" Now in '77, Alabama's football team had a very good year, and the Demon Deacons had a terrible year, so it's using the college football thing as an analogy for someone wanting better. It's basically a smarter, jazzier, more obscure version of "You Can't Always Get What You Want"

Depends on how I'm feeling. Usually when it seems that nothing I do is correct in the eyes of society, my view points differ from the common belief, or all the haters are just hatin on me; this makes me happy:

Well Jim... What you listen to isn't much better either. If my music is audible ignorance, then your music is a mental lobotomy, as after listening to it I feel more stupid. That twang about cars and scars and hillbilly thangs, is so redundant and over used, that it might be more beneficial to drive screws into the back of your skull, then to actually listen to it.

Now, just to show I not completely against country music, if you chose something from Johny Cash, Tommy Collins, Presley, Nelson, Jennings, or Conway Twitty, then I wouldn't be desperately trying to get that sound out of my head! :banghead: (that don't work)

I have bad memories about that song. When I was in high school, there was this strange kid there, who supposedly had relations with farm animals. When ever the dude would come into the computer lab, or was in a class room with a computer before class, the other students would play "Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep," which is a comical rip of AC/DC. Kids would even sing it in the hallway, when the dude walked by.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCRE9qOgbug&feature=player_embedded

So now whenever I hear that song, I hear "Dirty deeds, and they're done with sheep... Dirty deeds, Done with Sheep!"

If you want to talk about faith...

Black Sabbath was the first Christian rock band. Their music gives you BOTH sides; some songs advocate drug abuse, while others show you the evils of it, just like some of their songs are from the side of Satan, while most of the show why God is the only way to save your soul.

This is the other side of Black Sabbath: Does this poke fun at Faith?!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcmKTNhPk8U

Black sabbath does not make me cool. Black Sabbath is a band I've listened to all of my life, and can personally relate to their songs. I do not choose my entertainment based on what others will think of me. Saying that I purposely chose Black Sabbath, just to show how cool I am, would be like me saying that you chose "Next Biggest Thing" because you're a self centered egotistical moron who thinks he's the best thing that happened to this planet.

I never said it was cool. I said it was fun. Fun to see the looks of ill-content and malice, written the faces of people who, on any other day, would be listening to the same thing. It's fun to watch their judging eyes assume all that I do is blasphemy based on one action, and a few words said. I know what they do because I'm a member of the congregation and usually sit in on that service or the next.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1HjSaf65N4"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1HjSaf65N4

In high school, I blatantly refused to fit in with any group of students. I was unfortunately grouped in with the Gothic subculture, but that was by association only. I adamantly refused adopt their beliefs as my own and maintained that I was a non-conformist. I began wearing the same black outfit (plain black tee shirt and black wrangler jeans) everyday to protest the conformity. It started off as a joke, but that joke stopped being funny when I moved to a very rural high school where the students had no individuality; everyone of them was a redneck wearing a stained wife beater or a "Git-R-Done" shirt.
