Music Monday – I Wanna Rock!

I know what you are thinking.

“Music Monday? Uh, Marianne, have you looked a calendar lately? It’s Wednesday.”

Just hear me out.

I had every intent to bring you Music Monday on Monday. But I ended up agreeing to work a split shift at work. So I figured I’d hook you up on Tuesday. But then I found out a friend from Victoria was in town, and we ended up meeting for lunch downtown. Then I had Zumba, and before I knew it, it was Wednesday. I probably would have just skipped this week if I wasn’t so freakin’ excited to share this with you.

You may have heard me express my love for the game Rock Band more than once on the blog. I played it quite regularly with my friends back in Victoria. Since moving home, I’ve missed it so. Then on Friday night I was out with a friend I hadn’t seen in ages, and we ended up back at her place where she had Rock Band. Needless to say, much wine was consumed and rock was had. It left me wanting more.

Then I realize I have a birthday coming up (August 12th – there’s still time to send gifts).

So I did it.


I dropped more money to play a video game than any sane person should. And I couldn’t be happier. I’m ready to rock!

I even picked up the original Rock Band game, and Lego Rock Band on the cheap.


So far I’ve only got the PS3 set up, but I’m hoping to bust out the tunes tonight after work.

So in honour of my newly acquired rock, I shall give you some of my favourite songs to play in Rock Band.

Dani California – Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Link to the video – can’t embed.

This is the song my friends and I have declared our band’s song – not only is it a good song, but we rock at playing in. Fun to drum!

D.O.A. – Foo Fighters

I always make it a point to sing this one when I’m on the mic. In fact, this will probably be the 1st song I’ll download for the game.

Any Way You Want It – Journey

It’s not that it’s a particularily good song. But our band’s singer does it like the lead singer of AC/DC is singing it. It’s beyond hilarious. I often can’t drum because I’m laughing so hard. Tears people, tears.

Hungry Like The Wolf – Duran Duran

It’s 80’s, it’s catchy, and it has lyrics like “I smell like I sound/I’m lost and I’m found.” You can’t go wrong!

Now I need your help – I need to come up with a new band name for myself! I’m looking for creative suggestions. 

Are you a Rock Band fan? What instrument do you play? Favourite songs to play?

    I’d say that’s an excellent early birthday gift to yourself. Rock band is awesome. I’m a bit more of a guitar hero fan but belting out those tunes on the mic is always ridiculously good times. Mostly when I play rock band though I rock the drums. Lovin the drums.
