Music To Make You Deaf As You Drive


Ok so about a month ago a friend, Kim posts on Facebook (Go Figure) that she had her music so loud at the stoplight that the woman on side of her gave her a look then asked her to turn it down.  We've all been in this predicament.  So without hesitation Woman A pulled out a rocket launcher and destroyed Woman B's car.

Kim Being Innocent
Well after hearing this incredible story I was inspired to write.  This is a list of songs that when they come on I immediately turn it up to 11 or in the case of my new truck, 38, whatever the HELL that means.  Whatever the case its fucking loud and you know what they say If Its Too Loud You're Too Old.  And furthermore these are songs you sing along so loud to that others can hear you over the music.  Case in point, the end of Otherside by RHCP does this to me every time to this day.

More criteria for the list also includes songs that are impossible to listen to at a low volume level....

OK so roll down the windows and piss off the neighborhood.



Disclaimer:  This is MY list so it is subject to scrutiny.  Please add where necessary and I probably forgot many of them.  But know that ALL Tool, Black Sabbath and Rage live turned up to 38 in my truck.  
And here are the givens or songs you've already heard a million times so you already know...

MORE Great 90's Alt-Rock Songs You Probably Forgot About...



In A World Of Human Wreckage....

OK here we go.....

someone posted the "38 Great Al-Rock Songs You Haven't Thought About in 20 Years" prompting me to not only reminisce about my time at KLSU (Thanks DG) but that time in general.  The years 92 - 96.....When given the chance to be on KLSU, I immediately jumped and never looked back...my Wednesday afternoon shift during the summer was interesting to say the least....
As far as the music is concerned, this was the time when Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains were getting bigger and bigger but there were still no "New Rock" radio stations, so most if not all of the songs below were ignored by the masses but enjoyed by the few....

Most of these you will remember all of these and some more than others, but notice when they came out.  Oasis was in 1994 but didn't blow up til 1996.....same goes for the others....turn it up ENJOY and I will let the music do the talking...

There's No Easy Way Out. Good, Bad & Cheesy 80s Movie Songs

To quote the girl in the movie Dazed and Confused "The 50's blew,the 60's rocked,the 70's,well they obviously suck.Maybe the 80's will be radical!.....and radical in every way....and the 70s ROCKED more than 60s.....in my opinion.....the 80s brought us some of the most recognizable MOVIES ever and with these movies came music, some totally awesome, some just bad and some so fucking cheesy but you can't help but love it.....here is a sample with the disclaimer: 


I would like to thank the Karate Kid ( NOT THE GAY REMADE SHITTY ONE WITH THE DUMB KID WITH CORNROWS), Rocky IV and Teen Wolf ( THE MOVIE NOT THE SHITTY MTV SERIES)....MTV YOU STILL SUCK...signed 1988

AND also look at these movie posters....LEGENDARY and cheesy....you just don't get them like this anymore.....movies today pretty much suck to a degree, music definitely and even movie posters.


I also attached the movie trailers to these gems as not even trailers are this good anymore....now they pretty much give you the entire movie in 2 minutes.....ENJOY

it also looks like 1985 was a good year for movies....lots of classics


I will have a cheese scale after each one,
CHEESE SCALE:
1 - Parmesan
2 - Shredded American
3 - Nacho Cheese
4 - Gouda
5 - Full On VELVEETA

_________________________________________________



Probably one of the WORST Bond films ever but who could forget THIS opening song.....IT FUCKING ROCKED and it was Duran Duran so they could do no wrong


A View To A Kill - Trailer (1985)




Duran Duran - A View To A Kill 







CHEESE SCALE - 3 (Walken, Bond, Duran Duran)








In keeping with Bond theme for a moment.....The band A-HA did the title for the 1987 Bond flick "The Living Daylights"....Fucking love this one....more of a Guilty Pleasure


The Living Daylights - Trailer (1987)


A-ha - The Living Daylights


CHEESE SCALE - 4 (Bond mixed with A-HA)


Ok so NOW you get the picture so lets DIVE RIGHT FUCKING IN.....
_________________________________________________


Teen Wolf....The Original from 1985 has some pretty pathetic stuff going on from his girl who is a friend name "Boof" to his supposedly cool friend "Styles."


Teen Wolf - Trailer (1985)


Mark Safan - Win In The End


now listen to this next song as I swear I hear a voice in that horrible 80s computer saying "Big Bad Wolf Guy," even though its not the case...you decide....


Bunny and the Wolf Sisters


CHEESE FACTOR 4 (Thanks Boof  and Styles)


IN keeping with the Prom Dance thing....I give you another underrated classic in the cheese world...
_________________________________________________

Before Patrick Dempsey was the stud you ladies see on tv, he was this and yes that is Seth Green as his little brother.  I used to love his love interest in this movie.  Thought she was so hot.


Can't Buy Me Love - Trailer (1987)




Can't Buy Me Love - African Anteater Ritual




CHEESE FACTOR 4/5 (The clothes and Seth Green)




_________________________________________________

Growing up as a teen in the 80s, we had all kinds of "growing up" movies but this one takes the cake.   And has some phenomenal music such as Simple Minds "Don't You Forget About Me"


The Breakfast Club - Trailer (1985)




Not many people knew about the band Wang Chung except for "Dance Hall Days" but this was where they took off....


Wang Chung - Fire in the Twilight


CHEESE FACTOR 2 (Classic but lots of one-liners)








_________________________________________________
This next movie is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES and quite possibly one of the most UNDERRATED flicks EVER.  The hero (CSI's William Peterson) dies in the movie and it just blows you mind.  Wang Chung did the entire soundtrack and its 80s to a tee.  Also stars Willem Dafoe who is a freaking champ.


To Live And Die In L.A. (1985) 
Quick summary


Main Titles (music by Wang Chung)


Rick Masters Money Making Sequence 
(music by Wang Chung)


CHEESE FACTOR 2 (ONLY because of Wang Chung)


And arguably one of the best car chase scenes EVER....


_________________________________________________
Here we go with Rocky III and some REAL Velveeta melting here....I mean Rocky is legendary and Rocky II is good but then it just goes off with MR. T and so on...even Hulk Hogan, but with every cheesy flick comes a cheesy song attached and this one gave us Survivor's "Eye Of The Tiger" and here is where it first appears....
Rocky III - Trailer (1982)


Survivor - Eye Of the Tiger 


CHEESE FACTOR - 3 (Mr.T, Hulk, Rocky, Survivor. Enough said)


and the fucking accents in this movie are just fucking horrible but its Rocky and its Rocky IV so what do you expect....and this Robert Tepper song in the movie still makes me want to punch someone after seeing it....Eddie Murphy was right in the movie "Raw"


Eddie Murphy - Raw (Italians and Rocky)














Rocky IV - Trailer (1985)


Robert Tepper - No Easy Way Out 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwPb7g_BlXQ


Survivor - Burning Heart




CHEESE FACTOR 5 + 1 = 6
(The END of Rocky...should have been after Rocky II)

_________________________________________________
Does this next one even need an intro other than being remade in the most horrible fashion EVER?  


This movie has so much cheese in it it drips off the screen but its still a classic and I watch it every time it comes on...I am not sure which is worse the song at the end by Joe Esposito or the scene at the club where Daniel gets laughed at by all of the rich people after getting food knocked all over him....CLASSIC...and Survivor is BACK after Rocky


Karate Kid - Trailer (1984)


Survivor - The Moment Of Truth


Joe Esposito - You're The Best Around


CHEESE FACTOR - 5 (Prove Me Wrong)






_________________________________________________
The fact that Hollywood touched this CLASSIC with Russell Brand shows you how desperate they are....and the remake was  fucking bomb.....the trailer for the 81 flick is HILARIOUS


Arthur - Trailer (1981)


Christopher Cross - Arthurs Theme (1981)


CHEESE FACTOR - 0 (CLASSIC COMEDY)


















After Arthur Christopher Cross came out with this song with Doobie Brothers Michael McDonald....KILLER TUNE


Christopher Cross w/Michael McDonald - Ride Like the Wind


You might remember the next bassline from a certain early 90s rap song by Warren G called "Regulate"...here is original song.....
Michael McDonald - I Keep Forgetting


Running Scared - Trailer (1986)




Michael McDonald - Sweet Freedom






CHEESE FACTOR - 3
 (Mid 80s Billy Crystal and Gegory Hines as badass cops....YEAH OK)






_________________________________________________



Without "The Neutron Dance" this movie has no cheese factor as its funny and Eddie Murphy in his prime.....but having to listen to Fucking Glenn Frey to this day makes me want to shit on someone...fuck the Eagles


Beverly Hills Cop - Trailer (1984)




Glenn Frey - The Heat is On




CHEESE FACTOR 2 (The Neutron Dance does it)







The sequel is pretty good if Brigitte Nielson doesn't speak, but she does and once again proves why her and Stallone were a match made in heaven.....and this was POST-Rocky IV and PRE-Cobra

TOTAL IQ = 8



Beverly Hills Cop II - Trailer (1987)


Bob Seger - Shakedown (1987)






CHEESE FACTOR - 4 (Thanks Brigitte and its a sequel)


________________________________________


FUCKING MIAMI FUCKING VICE.....
The Opening Theme by Jan Hammer (1984 - 1990)


....and see below as Miami Vice had some of the BEST music during the show.....the first two have Spanish subtitles but its fuckin Depeche Mode, Bon Jovi and PIL so watch and enjoy how TV was before it became reality crap with no writers....





Depeche Mode - Fly On The Windscreen




Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead Or Alive




Public Image Ltd. - The Order of Death




CHEESE FACTOR 10 (the clothes, cars..80s 80s 80s)


_________________________________________________
Now here is Top Gun with all of the gay undertones especially with the shirtless beach volleyball scene.. still a decent movie ....                                                                   Top Gun - Trailer (1986)




Kenny Loggins - Dangerzone



Kenny Loggins - Playing With The Boys


CHEESE FACTOR - 5 (The volleyball scene and Iceman chopping teeth)










Any movie where you can't dance is gay and I still have not seen this movie NOR will I watch the remake which again is not needed.....


And Kenny Fucking Loggins was in high demand for these flicks....



Footloose - Trailer (1984)


Kenny Loggins - I'm Free


CHEESE FACTOR - 5 
(Stupid movie ideas make for even dumber movies)
_________________________________________________
The Fucking Brat Pack and where I first heard "This Face Seats Five"


St. Elmo's Fire - Trailer (1985)

John Parr - Naughty Naughty 




"Naughty Naughty, Cute and Horny"...what fucking horrible lyrics from that mullet freak


CHEESE FACTOR - 4/5 (Thanks to Naughty Naughty)


_________________________________________________



Secret of my Success - Trailer (1987)




Night Ranger- Secret Of My Success


CHEESE FACTOR - 5 (SO BAD ON SO MANY LEVELS)






_________________________________________________


If you have NEVER seen this movie....Its not even on DVD and its supposedly the follow up to Fast Times At Ridgemont High....SO many classic scenes in this movie....Wyatt from Weird Science and Chris Penn....


The Wild Life - Trailer (1984)




"It's Casual"


CHEESE FACTOR - 3 (80s in a nutshell)

What else can be said about this movie besides its another CLASSIC and what a way to end the 80s but with this movie chocked full of good music...TOO MUCH TO MENTION

CHEESE FACTOR - 0 (Great Movie)
