Walk Up Music Wednesday, Vol. 6

(No clue what Walk Up Music is?  Start here .)

Nothing excites me less than Halloween falling on weeknight.  Unless you include basketball tip offs at 9:06 p.m. or later.  Or a full moon on a Monday.

Knowing that, I knew I would have to seriously bring it this week.  So without further delay...

Monday-"Enter Sandman" by Metallica.  From the opening notes, you can't help but feel large and in charge, especially when you're walking down an empty school hallway at 6:30 in the morning.  And if you're not a Metallica purist, go to YouTube and search for Luke Bryan's version.  My bestie and I went and saw him a few years ago in Cincy.  He did "Enter Sandman" in a medley that included "Fishin' in the Dark" by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.  Three words: Off.  The.  Hook.)

Tuesday-"Munster Rag" by Brad Paisley.  Yes, it was Halloween.  Which meant I heard a lot of the Halloween staples ("Monster Mash", "Somebody's Watching Me", and "Thriller") on the radio.  And this one's just fun because it's all instrumental. It's also another one I associate with seeing live.  My college roommate and I went and saw Brad Paisley at the Little Nashville Opry in Nashville, Indiana and he played this song live.  Good times.

Wednesday-"Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This" by The Shirelles.  You know what I'm talking about-it's the day after Halloween, you know everyone's going to come in hyper from the candy, followed by the inevitable sugar crash, there's a full moon on the horizon.  And it's only Wednesday.


Sadly, this is where our journey ends.  I managed to injure myself Wednesday evening and woke up Thursday hurting so badly that I only stayed a half day at work.  I didn't even try and psych myself up and then wound up staying home Friday as well but there's always next week...
