With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“A great philosopher once wrote, naughty, naughty, very naughty” November 25, 2010


It would appear that the Performing Rights Society recently undertook a survey to determine the most controversial song ever and surprisingly many of the usual suspects are in the top 10. Controversially I am still just a little under the influence so to speak 😉 Here is the top 10;

Smack My Bitch Up – Prodigy

God Save The Queen – Sex Pistols

Relax – Frankie Goes To Hollywood

Kim – Eminem

Killing In The Name – Rage Against The Machine

Ebeneezer Goode – The Shamen

Suicide SolutionOzzy Osbourne

Get Your Gunn – Marilyn Manson

Angel of Death – Slayer

Dear God – XTC

In my view the songs represent many people’s view of controversy, but not mine! I can see that people might have been angered and provoked by many things in their topics; religion, firearms, death/ suicide, drugs, violence, sex and being against the monarchy. Well maybe they’re right, but I for one do not think so, but it is, after all about the rock n roll! well not just the rock n roll but also the sex and drugs too. Hmmmmmm…… “Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll

I’m also surprised that there is no room for Max Romeo’s “Wet Dream“, Donna Summer‘s “Love To Love You Baby” and “Je T’Aime” from Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin. However there were only 1,700 people in the survey! read the story on the BBC here.

Are you sick of Halloween yet?

I know that for some of you this may be a little late, but I simply couldn’t resist a brief Halloween post! So here are five spooky songs for your horrific delectation………..Trick Or Treat!!!

Kicking off with the scariest of the bunch, Rob Zombie‘s White Zombie manage to turn KC and the Sunshine Band‘s “I’m Your Boogie Man” into a total scarefest. As a bonus you get a rather strange introduction by the bizarre Dr Spooky

Next up with the definitive version of “I Put A Spell On You” it’s the wonderful Screamin’ Jay Hawkins

Now I couldn’t have a Halloween post without the late, great Screaming Lord Sutch could I so here he is with “Jack The Ripper” and an added bonus of “Dracula’s Daughter

This next one is a disco guilty pleasure of mine, it’s “Soul Dracula” by Hot Blood, strangely enough after putting a stake in the charts with this they never came back, clearly not fully paid up members of the undead then were they?

Finally it’s Marilyn Manson (aka Brian Warner) with “This Is Halloween” from Tim Burton‘s rather splendid “A Nightmare Before Christmas” In fact the video features the movie.
