Twinkle Twinkle Little Rockstar

You know, I don’t use Spotify a whole lot. I have an account, sure, and I’ve made playlists – mainly to remember the bands I caught up on when browsing the thing. There are two main things I use Spotify for:

1) Getting myself into bands prior to a show if I because of reasons can’t get their albums at the moment (for instance, if I can’t get the CD’s in time or if I’ve been stupid enough to put their CD’s on a wishlist so I have to wait and see if they’ll be given or not, so I don’t end up with doubles)

However, I never actually listens to album of bands if there isn’t a concert around the corner. Like, right now I’m blasting the hell out of Amaranthe (which I’ll see live next week), but I’m not touching SlipKnot for more than three songs or so, that’ll wait until I get the hands of the albums (and here we have the situation where I put them on a wishlist somewhere, so I have to wait and see for now)

2) To find new music.

Number two is something I do more often than not. You probably remember I told you about One Man Army band? Yeah, that’s one of those bands I found thanks to randomly browsing the site. Most of the times it happens by accident. Like, I was looking up this one song I love tremendously from a musical I love tremendously, and ended up on a band called The Deal instead of the song The Deal(No Deal).

Or today – I was randomly listening to the song “Snuff” by SlipKnot, and since I had looked up the song specifically (to not ruin the album for me, huhu) and it continued down to the next song called “Snuff”. My first idea was to stop it and go back to the previous one, as I always do when I listen to random songs, but then I listened a little closer and realized I recognized this. That it sounded A LOT like Slipknot’s. I decided to take a look and this is what I found.

Snuff – Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star. Album: Lullaby Versions of Slipknot

Like. What. LIKE WHAT.

LIKE THIS IS FUCKING BRILLIANT. This morning I had just thought to myself that I need to stop listen to music before going to sleep (as it pumps me up) and instead go back to putting together a playlist for good nights sleep, and to look for good songs for that, and then THIS FUCKING ALBUM COMES MY WAY AND I’M LIKE LITERALLY RUNNING RIGHT OVER TO AMAZON TO BUY THIS PIECE OF PERFECTION.

BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE, IT’S NOT ONLY SNUFF IT’S LIKE ALSO “WAIT AND BLEED” AND “(SIC)” AND “PSYCHOSOCIAL” AND “SPIT IT OUT” AND THE REST OF THE SONGS AND I’M LIKE DYING LIKE THIS IS PERFECT I WAS SQUEALING WHEN I SAW THIS.

Of course, I had to see what this Twinkle Twinkle thing was, and I’m not sure if that was the biggest mistake I did, or if it’s the best thing that has ever happened to me. Because it didn’t stop at SlipKnot.

They have everything. EVERYTHING. They even had this 80’s Hair Metal CD that even featured Slaughter (Fly to the Angels), they had Disney classics CD, they had the entire FROZEN CD – ALL MADE INTO LULLABYS! Fall Out Boy, Madonna, Metallica, Green Day, I’m not even going to mention all the CD’s right here right now, but they had SHITLOADS. AND I WAS JUST SQEUALING LOUDER AND LOUDER THE MORE I SCROLLED DOWN OH MY FUCKING LORD BY ODIN’S BEARD.

So if you need good sleeping music – Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star is your friend. Sadly, they only do their songs digital, so Amazon is your friend.

Isn’t it amazing what listening to ONE song can lead to?
