Music Monday: Anything for Views + Matching with Alex

musicmonday

Social media, the bane of modern life that we just can’t live without. Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, YouTube, Twitch, MySpace, everyone’s trying to come up with that next big prank, parody, meme, or photo that goes viral and attracts the attention of the world for fifteen minutes. A lot of the stupid shit that makes it doesn’t deserve and the stuff that does, your stuff, languished among your friends and family if you’re lucky.

Today’s song takes this idea and tosses it around like the absurd pursuit that it really is while still have both fun with it and fun doing it.  I love a good animated music video and this is damn-near perfect in my book. It’s one of the newer bands on my playlist, here’s Freak Kitchen with “Freak of the Week”.

Music Matching with Alex!

Weekly challenge: find or share a song that you know that either has a matching title, theme, or other details. The more matches, the better! Make them clear, make them oddly specific, or make them obscure, it’s yours! Musicians welcome! To enter, simply either leave a link to your match as a comment with a few words (More words, if you like.) or add a Pingback to your post and I’ll scuttle over to see what you’ve come up with. 😀

Now it’s time to Freak out!

I’m your Freak of the Week

Mutilate myself
Become an amputee
Like me,

Blow myself up for free
Break my neck in HD
I’m your Freak of the Week

A hole in one, to say
Seven million views

Who’s your daddy now?
Who’s leading the way?

Like me,
