We all like Music. Music is kind of like Quiche. You like Quiche, right? Of course you do, everyone loves Quiche, but in order for you to enjoy that savory breakfast favorite someone first had to figure out how to scramble an egg. These bands are just like that, they’re the guys (and gals) who figured out how to take Music and scramble it up. I was fortunate in that I grew up in a home where I had a Father who held Music with the same esteem that some do the Law. I grew up listening to vinyl records and blistering guitar riffs. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all about Flo-Rida dance parties and Miley Cyrus sing-a-longs, but in a culture where the Top 100 changes about as frequently as I change my clothes I think it’s really easy for the people who made the music we have today possible to sort of become forgotten along the sidelines. So ladies, if you will please, take this stroll with me down memory lane and let’s talk about some of the greatest musicians that have ever graced this earth.
BANDS THAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
Ladies, if I were to say “Ozzy Osbourne” I’m sure most of you would know who I’m talking about either because you’re old enough to remember the Osbourne family’s short lived MTV reality show or because of his wife Sharon who’s known for shows like America’s Got Talent and CBS’s The Talk, or maybe it’s because his daughter Kelly has been kicking it with E’s Fashion Police for some time now. Regardless, you know who the guy is, but long before TV cameras invaded his home and the Osbourne women launched a full out assault on our cable boxes, Ozzy was the lead singer of a little band by the name of Black Sabbath.
Black Sabbath formed in the United Kingdom in the late 1960’s and took over the scene with their blues drenched heavy sound. Black Sabbath is widely considered one of the main pioneering forces behind Heavy Metal and forged the way for so many of the artists we love and adore today. Black Sabbath was selling out stadiums decades before their song played during the end credits of the movie Iron Man. To date, Black Sabbath has sold over 70 Million records worldwide, so whether you like jamming to the Black Eyed Peas or Maroon 5, it is pretty much certain that every artist that has existed in the last 4 decades has been influenced by this band in some way, and that is pure and honest truth.
I’m redoing my Tumblr…get stoked.
Werewolves always have all the fun.
Does anyone else remember this band? I swear back in 2007 this song was my catalyst and the only thing I felt like I could ever relate to. True story.
The little broseph and I are going to brunch, because when you wake up at 11 in the morning Noon is still too early for lunch. Truth.
I will always love this song.
End of story.
My Aunt was telling my Mom and I about this picture she is buying that depicts the scene where Jesus walked on water and saved Paul. It’s not the same picture as the one that’s up above, but I was thinking about that image on my drive home last night. I feel like that image is a really good example of a lot of the situations in my own life.
Jesus was walking on water and the disciples thought he was a ghost so Jesus told them not to be afraid because it was only him. Paul still wasn’t buying it, so he told Jesus if it was really him to call him to him…so Jesus did. Paul walked out on the water towards Jesus for a bit but he got scared and when he did he started sinking into the water. Paul started doubting and the result of that was that he started to drown. Paul called out for Jesus to save him and so Jesus walked over to him and pulled him out of the water.
How amazing is it that we have a savior who will literally come to us in order to rescue us? We don’t have to be in a special place or a special situation, we don’t have to do anything…all we have to do is ask and He will come to us. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately, and maybe it’s just me but I think that’s pretty awesome.
This is probably one of my most favorite songs, and probably always will be.
