Thank God for my music!!!!!!

When I go into work, I have about a 6 mile drive. This gives me time to listen to the radio and, hopefully, catch a song that'll put me in the right frame of mind.

I use to work in a radio station, so I know how things run (or used to run). Two blocks are set aside every hour...usually at the :20 & :50 minute mark for commercials. Next time you're listening to your fav station and a commercial comes on, hit the scan button. Chances are EVERY stations is running commercials at the same time.


A friend of mine here, _Jake, always would ask me what song I heard on the way into he'd know what type of night I was expecting at the hotel.

So, here's a list of some songs & what frame of mind it'll put me in for work.

Rob Zombie's More Human than Human - I get a mindset that I can handle anything thrown my way during my shift.

AC/DC's For Those About To Rock... - I start feeling a sense of pride, because I associate this song to our men & women in uniform.

G 'n R's Welcome To The Jungle - My attitude: Don't sing it! Just Bring It!! I'm ready for anything!!

Metallica hmmmmmm...just about anything they play!! - I get fired up, but start wishing I was headed to a strip club instead of the Motel Hell.

KISS's Heaven On Fire - I get into that "Damn, I wish Jenna Jamison would check in tonight!" frame of mind...nuff said?

Of course, there are lots of others....Nickelback, Staind, POD, Ted Nugent, etc...whose songs can get me into the right frame of mind to deal with work...or just about anything.

What music/songs/artist get you into the right frame of mind?

NG61......damn glad he heard some Metallica before arriving at work on a Freaky Friday night

hard one for me to respond to - you know my love of words is far greater than my musical knowledge - but...

whenever i think of D - the words to "the first time, ever i saw your face" come to me

blues, jazz, reggae float my boat and half the time i don't know who's singing what - but oh Night, the words speak to me


You cannot conceive the many without the one.

Roberta Flack....classic song.

There's a lot of songs that I have no idea what in the hell the singer is saying, but I like the music.

My love,

If you put the cd player in the van, you can set any mood you want on the way into work...not bitching, just telling

Love you

Roger Chapman,from Family till now.Tom Rapp,from Pearls Before Swines on.I have 2000 vinile,tapes,cassettes,now CDs in groowin' number.I like many others artist,more or less known,and follow novelties.And there are no particular emotiional experiences linked to this.It's my complexion synthesis.Doors were not virtuosos, but their charge remains.Zappa is most sophisticated,but must be acquainted with.So the hand of my meter is there.
