I’ve got a two-fer for this one.

I’ve got another two-fer here. :)

Day 3: A Song That Reminds You of Summertime

Time for some cock rock…

Day 4: A Song That Reminds You of Someone You'd Rather Forget

This one’s for my first girlfriend.

Type O Negative - "Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scare-All)

Day 5: A Song That Needs to be Played Loud

The whole point of heavy metal is that you’re supposed to play it loud, so it’s hard to pick just one. I know just the thing, however… Lay down your soul to the gods’ rock ‘n roll!

Venom - "Black Metal"

Day 6: A Song That Makes You Want to Dance

Isn’t this Rammstein’s raison d’etre?

Rammstein - Moskau

Day 7: A Song to Drive To

So many to choose from! But let’s go with one that isn’t actually about driving.

The Sisters of Mercy - "Temple of Love 1992 (featuring Ofra Haza)"
