Guilty Pleasure Saturday #1
A bunch of my blogging buddies seems to have some sort of weekly feature on their blogs. Rusty has Saturday Hotness (sometimes), March has Forgotten Disc Friday, and Pog has Sucky CD Sunday. I thought I'd join the party with Guilty Pleasure Saturday, which will be a sampling of songs I blast at full-volume when I'm home alone or when I'm in my car and quickly turn down as soon as someone else approaches. Let's start things off with Scorpions "No One Like You."
Since I can't tell this song and "Rock You Like a Hurricane" apart until the verse begins, I wait with bated breath for "Girl, it's been a long time that we've been apart." The verses of this song are ok (my favorite part is the way Klaus Meine pronounces "way"), but the head-banging commences at the drum build-up followed by the oh-so-cheesy hair-metal chorus.
This video has anything a video could need: Alcatraz, sharks, an old-fashioned cigarette holder, a crazy prisoner wearing glasses that appear to be made out of forks who decides to bang a guitar against the wall instead of running away, and a leather-clad blonde in a cage full of fire. Yeah, I don't know either, but they're German so I give them a pass on the ridiculousness.
