Day 4: Song that has used to describe myself...

larsEveryone has an image of themselves that they want to present to the world, and music is a pretty easy way of keying in the rest of the world to what you would like them to get an image of…

Beyou a gangster, a lover, or just some half-a-fag boppin’ your head to whatever club banger you hear between your ears when you close your eyes, the music you listen to (and more over share with others) says a lot about you and what you hold dear.  

For example, in the whole “Who is better: the Beatles or the Rolling Stones” debate (which, by the way is a silly debate to have but I do understand where it stems from… marijuana), the response has less to do with the amount of #1 hits either band had, perceived talent within it's ranks, and the general likability of the members than it does to how the fans of either band see themselves in the world. If you are a poppier kind of person, then the Beatles were your bag. If you were a bit edgier, then you probably leaned towards the Stones.

lfatbSo when it comes to answering the question “What song have you told people describes you”, it took a tad bit more thought than the questions coming before this one had.

First of all, I had to think of the songs I have used before as a form of audio dog tags. Slowly but surely, a loosely thought out list of songs I had insisted girls listen to (putting them on mix tapes or really, really suggesting to them that they give a certain song a listen usually were among the chief ways of making sure they did). The list was then narrowed down until a final choice was made.

Of all the songs I had chosen before to act as my avatar, only one was truly done to try and effect the impression of world was supposed to have…

What single man would not want the world to look upon his life as nothing more than an elaborate method to excuse a destructive (all be it rather enjoyable) lifestyle of whoring, drinking, and drugging…

And it’s that rock n’ roll lifestyle that “My Life to Live” by Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards (featuring fellow Rancid bandmate Tim Armstrong) romanticizes perfectly, turning the aimlessness life of a gypsy into the nihilistic dreams of any single young men out there.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy “My Life to Live” by Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards…
