Day 13: You war song...

UntitledI have been enjoying this whole music challenge and really thought that this question would be an easy, cut-n-dry one…

But, when going through the lists of music I have found useful in the job of getting myself jacked up in order to go exert myself in some way (be it working out, fighting, sex, or what have you ), it screamed stereotype…

Just one long list of Pantera-Slayer-Maiden metal.

To be honest I was kind of ashamed of myself… to be driven to the edges of my civility by a basic three chord march set to a double bass seemed silly.

Even more so when I went through a few of the first few songs that went through my head… the stunning sameness of everything I heard… over-exaggerated teenage testosterone fueled rants about respect and paying dues set to screaming guitars and driving bass and drums.

But I have to admit… four songs into it and it took everything I had to not respond to an innocent question about what I wanted to go with supper asked by my wife by calling her a cunt.

But then one came to my mind… One I recall having in heavy rotation during the dying days of my first marriage…

During that time, my lawyer had stressed to me the importance of not leaving my marriage but rather making sure that I was thrown out (the idea of being made to leave as opposed to just bailing on some poor woman made me look more sympathetic or something), and suggested that perhaps I start letting out some of those deep down frustrations my former wife’s infidelities and deceptions had caused in me.

And I did, turning the once meek behavior of a man who wanted to go along to just get along into a true war zone…

A war zone I could not have created without the primal cries of Bon Scott and AC/DC with “If you want blood (you got it)”…
