Canadian Music: The Most Dangerous Song in History
(Don’t listen to this song!!! Seriously, you’ll regret it)
This is a follow up to my 10 minute challenge on Canadian Bands. How could I forget Spirit of the West (SOTW)?
SOTW was around during the 80’s and 90’s. In the early 90’s they released the most seditious song ever recorded: Home For A Rest.
What makes this song so dangerous? The combination of music and lyrics makes it impossible not to drink a beer and stomp around your house, or bar, or workplace – wherever you are – while listening to this song, whatever the time of day. It’s 7:00 a.m. right now and I’m already drinking.
This song is pure trouble. I was in University when it came out. That meant a lot of drinking and stomping about, much to the chagrin of neighbours – my own and my friends.
So, don’t listen to it, people. For your own good.
*I know you are probably thinking something like, “Well, retard, why did you link to the video if you don’t want us to listen to the song?’ Good question. The only answer I can give is that, as mentioned above, I’ve already been drinking beer, and so my critical reasoning function is compromised. That’s my excuse.*
*You might also be thinking something like, “Hey, retard, are you really drinking a beer at 7 o’clock in the morning? ” The honest answer is, no, but I’ve been thinking real hard about drinking a beer. Sometimes thinking about things real hard makes it kinda feel like it’s actually happening. Not that there is anything wrong with having a beer in the morning. I’ve done it before. Well, not for a long time, but, yeah, sometimes you wake up and think “Damn, I really want a beer right now,” and so you open your fridge and get one. It happens, just like feces and American Idol tours.*
