Rockin on a Deserted island

Music makes MY world go round.

Never have I spent a day without music, and I almost always find something new for me and perhaps even you.

Today, I found an awesome song that I would like to share with all of you. The song is called “People Are Crazy” by Billy Currington.

Any other day, I would have skipped this song, because apparently I’ve had this in one of the mp3 folders that I got from my King. For those who may have a little trouble keeping up, here is the lyrics of the song:

This old man and me, were at the bar and we
Were having us some beers and swappin’ I dont cares
Talking politics, blonde and redhead chicks
Old dogs and new tricks, and habits we aint kicked

We talked about Gods grace, and all the hell we raised
Then I heard the ol’ man say
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

He said I fought two wars, been married and divorced
What brings you to Ohio, he said damned if I know
We talked an hour or two, bout every girl we knew
What all we put them through, like two old boys will do

We pondered life and death, he lit a cigarette
Said these damn things will kill me yet
But God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

Last call is two am, I said goodbye to him
I never talked to him again

Then one sunny day, I saw the old mans face
Front page obituary, he was a millionaree
He left his fortune to, some guy he barely knew
His kids were mad as hell, but me, Im doing well
And I dropped by today, to just say thanks and pray
And I left a six-pack right there on his grave
And I said, God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

I love the song because of its meaning. It struck a chord in me, and I think that it is a bit sad because there are a lot of people who just need somebody to talk to – myself included.

Now if I were on a deserted island, and for some reason I am able to enjoy music, I would definitely lug my 500 GB external hard drive that is filled with music. BUT, I cannot do that, can I?

If I had to choose just one album that never gets old for me, it would be… the 125 Greatest Rock Legends of All Time compilation album! It consists of songs from Ozzy Osbourne, Guns n Roses, Led Zeppelin, Poison, Twisted Sister, Def Leppard, ZZ Top, and so much more! Why? Because almost all my favorite songs are there!

It may seem odd that a female 20-something would choose that, but I tell you, nothing picks me up like classic rock hits. Back when I had my motorcycle, I would imagine me driving around the whole city blasting tunes with an mp3 player. But I lost my motorcycle, and now I just walk with those tunes especially on a very low day.

So yeah, rock on! Rock on!
