I need you two pick two songs:
The first one is one you will listen to over and over again with no breaks for 48 hours.
The second one is one your greatest enemy will have to listen to with no breaks for 48 hours.
This song will be the only thing you hear for 48 hours…even in your sleep.
The song must be between 1’30" and 7’ long.
No silent musical compositions.
If you try to find a workaround for these simple rules, I will choose either “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” or “Music Box Dancer” for you to listen to, while your greatest enemy sips craft beer while listening to you whimper and/or scream.
I’d force myself to listen to Hand Of Glory by Relapse Cult; it’s easily my favorite song of all time. I can and have listened to nothing but this song for weeks on end.
Frankly, I have a lot of choices for what I’d force my enemy to listen to, but I guess I’ll go with Shock Attrition (Control In Decline) by Revenge; it’s a brutally atonal and nearly arrhythmic assault aided by strategically poor production that doesn’t let up for it’s 4 minute and 2 second length. And since I know my enemy wouldn’t be a huge grindcore fan, this isn’t going to be a pleasant 48 hours for them.
The 48 hour one cannot be a song I love a lot because then I’d hate it after a while and I don’t want that. Something soft and mellow that can melt into the background while I live my life. Spyro Gyra’s Morning Dance.
I would go with “Sadness Part 2” because I think I can sleep through it too.
For my enemy either “Panama” by Van Halen (hark back to a Drew Carey episode) or “They’re coming to take you away” OR (if this qualifies as a song, since they use this in some pretty hardcore POW training):
For me, Ghost - Dance Macabre…I tend to listen to it repeatedly, anyway. (Preferably the album version, since the lead in to the video is a bit overlong, but I could deal with that, too.)
For my enemy… Mad Scientist CackleThe Cuppycake Song.
I’ll have Deep Blue Day by Eno / Lanois from the Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks album. Absolutely dreamy piece of ambient music. You may recognise it from the “Scotland’s worst toilet” scene in Trainspotting.
