Jazzy Eastern Metal

I've had a couple of very different songs stuck in my head lately, all for different reasons. Some have been really awesome to mentally play over and over.

Others, like "Too Darn Hot" by Ella Fitzgerald, have been obnoxious. Don't get me wrong; I love Ella, but...

Last night, at 4 a.m., the bedroom was sweltering. We've been doing our best to make the supposed air conditioning work, and to no avail. Last night, the air finally felt cool, and so we left it on overnight. Bad idea. Even if it was cool, it was certainly not AC. I turned it off, opened the windows (previously closed due to loud highway traffic), and lay in bed with this song running through my head.

For an hour.

I've had "Kese Kese" by DJ Sheb Sabbah in my head ever since I learned (finally!) who the artist was. Love its weirdness and the beautiful Eastern tune.

A friend gave me this song in high school, on a mix CD labeled "XXX: Porn!". It was all music and not skeezy in the slightest, but I still made sure my mom didn't see that one.

A recent discovery I've been enjoying is the song "Love Bites (So Do I)" by Halestorm. I dig the awesome lady vocals and the fact that it's a heavy song played very well. Even if metal isn't your thing, you can at least admit she's got a killer voice. Not to mention the song is kind of hilarious.

Doesn't hurt that her outfit is kickass too.
