My Music Monday

Want to see me annoy Denton to no end?

Well.....that list is long on how to do that, but one of the easiest ways is for me to attempt to rap.

Every now and again, I would like to think I surprise a reader or two on my music choices.

Even I would say I have a preference for a certain kind of music, but in reality, if you went through my iTunes liberry, you'd have a harder time picking a style that I stick with.

Granted, you are never going to find thrash or speed metal in there, but I like to think I run the least to a degree.

It's not that Linkin Park is that on the cusp of my music selections - and certainly not even the selection I have here, "In the End". I think the bigger surprise is that initially it was not even me who heard it first - Denton did. If you saw his iTunes account, that would make your raise an eyebrow. .....I'm just sayin'.

Anyhoo - I love this song. No, it's not on my top 10, or even probably top 50 songs, but if it comes up in the car iPod and such, I tend to hit the 'repeat' button once or twice to listen to it the whole way through....again.  ....and by listen, I mean rap/sing along.

Yes, there is a rap that runs throughout the song, but it's a clean rap and it is one that annoys Denton that I can actually do! (ok, that might surprise doing it, not him being annoyed.) Overall, I'm not the biggest fan of rap, but when done well, I'm good with it. Also, that it is mixed in with an actual tune does not hurt.

Normal disclaimer anymore: Sorry if you have to sit through a small advertisement before the video starts.

OK, I am interested. I would like to see you rap. Do you have any chops? The bleeding head would add authenticity to your white man angst.

Odd. I never really considered Mike Shinoda's lyrics to be rap. More sing-song to me.


I always loved Linkin Park's music videos. Very well done.
