In the comments on my previous tirade, Keiran comments on the therapuetic benefits of music and violent video games. And he's right. He points to Green Day's F.O.D. as a song to rage by and I have to say, those are some beautiful lyrics.
Which reminds me. I've been listening to the new Green Day CD (skipping over the dreadful American Idiot
) and I have to say that Jesus of Suburbia is their magnum opus
. Part Clash, part The Who, it's nearly ten minutes of lyrical and musical goodness. Check it out.
Back to Keiran's point about music
soothing the soul
fanning the flames: I have a mission for you today. Tell me your angriest song, the one that you turn up to ten when you are in a venemous rage. And then tell me the song that lowers your blood pressure and puts you in your happy place.
When I get home this evening, I'll make a radio station with some of the choices. We'll call it Homicidal Happiness.
I'm suddenly in the mood for some Rammstein. Or Air Supply.
