Steve Miller

Posted by shanoah on October 20, 2008

Well, once again, speaking of jobs, thought I’d play this classic Steve Miller Band song:

Keep On Rocking Me Baby – Steve Miller Band

I actually mentally associate this song with Michael Nesmith’s “Cruisin’“, simply because I have them on the same recorded-off-the-radio tape.

While I’m at it, lets play another Steve Miller Band song:

Fly Like An Eagle – Steve Miller Band

Song themes involving flight have always gone over well with me. That’s one reason why I love the Firefly theme music. So do themes involving time, social awareness, and spiritual themes, so this song scores points on many levels with me.

The same goes for themes about bashing weasel skulls in, but I can only think of one song that fufills that[1], and one other that even comes close, so you can’t have everything.

[1] Note to self: have not played song with lyrics “bash their weaselly skulls right in” here, despite playing “Skullcrusher Mountain”, and Sean playing the “I’m crushing your head” video.

This must be rectified. But not right now…
