Your Summer Love Songs of the Week

2009 August 11

I couldn’t pick just one. I go with two Queens of the Stone Age songs because they’re my official summer band. Nothing like rolling down the windows on a beautiful day and blasting QOTSA. If it were the winter, I’d probably post a depressing Radiohead song that makes me want to suffocate myself with my pillow. Thom Yorke has a voice to commit suicide to.

Queens of the Stone Age – You Can’t Quit Me Baby

I mentioned the word depressing, and these lyrics can be described as such, yet the song manages to be so laid back with a line like “slash and I cut/I do it for you.”

Queens of the Stone Age – Another Love Song

This song is just fun as hell. Googling just made me aware than Insane Clown Posse also has a song by the same name, but I’m not curious enough to subject myself to ICP.

I’m going to use this opportunity to mention that there’s no album I’m looking forward to more than the Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, and John Paul Jones collaboration apparently known as Them Crooked Vultures. The two Muse songs released thus far dropped that album down a notch.
