10 Songs On My Playlist Today

Today, I had an appointment that was quite the drive. It was 3 hours, round trip. As much as I love Dad and enjoy his company, humor, and stories of his youth, I really enjoyed being completely alone! My music kept me company and I cranked it up and rocked out! I sang along and wiggled and tapped to the music. This is something I can’t normally do with Dad in the car!

I am always amused by the number of people who look at me like there’s something wrong with me. They see a 56-year-old woman in a car with music blaring, that can be heard through closed windows and they get this odd look on their faces. Older people probably think I’m too old for that nonsense, younger people probably think it’s odd that I’m listening to such modern music, and people my age probably wonder why I’m not listening to country music! Some might just think, “Damn, is she deaf?”

What was I listening to? I’m glad you asked! (Even though you didn’t….heehee.) Here are 10 of the songs on my playlist today:


Korn – Freak On A Leash


Avatar – Let It Burn


Gojira – Stranded


Avenged Sevenfold – Hail To The King


Bad Wolves – Zombie (cover)


AC/DC – Thunderstruck


Rammstein – Du Hast


Red Sun Rising – The Otherside


Drowning Pool – Let The Bodies Hit The Floor


Soundgarden – Spoonman


So, what’s on your playlist?

Study: Listening To Heavy Metal Makes You Calmer

Haha! And I thought it was just me all this time! I can honestly say that heavy metal or any other hard, loud, raunchy, angry music can sure make me feel better! It’s like the music and the emotions coming from the artist rip the anger and pain right out of me, calming me down to that level-headed, caring, sensible person I usually am! If you aren’t a fan of heavy metal or hard rock, give it a shot some time when you’re in a really pissy mood.  Just feel the negativity ooze right out of you!
