It is saturday night, and for the tiny handful of you humans sane enough to not choose to spend this time deliberately intoxicating your brains, or trying to trick a fellow human into helping you attain a sexual climax, or trying to extract lies and illusions of love and caring from others, I have decided to offer an alternative form of entertainment: My current list of top five favorite songs directly inspired by and paying tribute to, real-life True-crime incidents.
#5: “Death Valley 69”, by Sonic Youth, honoring Martyr Charles Manson and his disciples:
#4: “Nebraska”, by Bruce Springsteen, honoring Martyrs Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate:
#3: “Sniper”, by Harry Chapin, honoring Martyr Charles Whitman:
“I said to myself that someday I’d pay them all back, and an overwhelming sense of outrage grew.”—-Charles Starkweather
#2: “I Don’t Like Mondays”, by The Boomtown Rats, honoring Martyr Brenda Ann Spencer:
Note: Some of the on-screen lyrics on the above video are incorrect, but it is still My favorite version due to image content.
#1: “Bloodbath In Paradise”, by Ozzy Osbourne, honoring Martyr Charles Manson and his disciples:
Note: Here is a bonus, alternative live version of Bloodbath In Paradise, depending upon My mood, I alternate viewing/listening between these two:
“The music speaks to you every day, but you are too deaf, dumb, and blind to even listen to the music. You are too deaf, dumb, and blind to stop what you are doing.”–Charles Manson
“Tell children not to throw rocks, make rules against picking up rocks, and then make them mad. Keep projecting what not to do and you make the thought in their brains of what can and will be done.”–Charles Manson
