Twisted Mix Tape #35 - Things Ya Might Get Busted For In Real Life
I’ve been a fan of Twisted Mix Tape for several months now. Even though I haven’t posted, I check in each week and see what’s going on. I love music and I love people who love music and almost every week Jen has something on her list that I’ve never heard or heard of before.
This week’s Twisted Mix Tape topic was suggested by Jen’s friend, Kerri, from Undiagnosed but Okay. The conversation from Jen’s post: She (Kerri) said, how about a “this song could’ve sent me to jail?” I (Jen) was intrigued, but needed more. Hmmm let’s see the Doors come on baby get higher, Or Carrie Underwood doing a little grand larceny beating up her boyfriends truck? Blondie gets arrested after seeing Aliens in Rapture Or even to be funnier: Joe Cocker you can leave your hat on, so if I left just my hat on I would be arrested for indecent exposure. Trust me it wouldn’t be pretty! Aha!
And so, because apparently many of my favorite songs all include questionable antics I decided to put together my own list.
The Decemberists – the Rake’s Song
The first time I heard this song I loved it. Downloaded it and then realized it wasn’t necessarily appropriate listening for a mother with children (nearby at least!) The words are really horrible. This is about a very, very bad man who should be hanged (because that punishment would fit the time period of the song, I think.)
AC DC – Pretty much any song by AC DC could be posted here, including: Shoot to Thrill, What Do You Do For Money and Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
This one just makes me laugh so I had to find a video for it.
The Beatles – Happiness is a Warm Gun
This song is rumored to be about a used gun, sex and drugs. You can decide for yourself, here’s the Wikipedia article.
Sublime – Santeria
I’m pretty sure the line “Pop a cap in Sancho” alludes to something illegal.
Jane’s Addiction – Jane Says
This live version is one of my all time favorite songs, even though the video cuts off the first minute (check out Up From The Catacombs for the full version.) And it’s about Jane’s addiction: heroin. The story.
So what song(s) would you have chosen? I’d love to hear what you think of when you hear “things ya might get busted for in real life!”
Thanks for joining me today!
