Music Monday: I Like It Heavy by Halestorm

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

I think Into the Wild Life is still my favorite Halestrom album. I’m kind of disappointed about Vicious. Anyway, I probably could pick a few other songs, but I chose I Like it Heavy, becuase I woke up with a line stuck in my head “We’ll get matching tattoos” and had no idea which song it was from. I did some reasearch (I totally was thinking it was from another band, oops), and this song came up. So here we go. Besides, I really like this song.

Lyrics

Some like beautiful, perfect and pretty
I see the good in the bad and the ugly
I need the volume one louder than ten
Put the pedal to the metal, needle into the red

If the windows ain’t shaking
Making my heart race
If I can’t feel it in my chest
I’m in the wrong damn place!

Got a demon in my soul and a voice in my head
Saying, “Go, go, go, I can sleep when I’m dead.”
There’s a sonic revelation bringing me to my knees
And there’s a man down below that needs my sympathy

I got a ringing in my ears
Getting ready to burst
Screaming, “Hallelujah motherfucker
Take me to church.”

I like it louder than the boom of a big bass drum
I need it harder than the sound of guitar grunge
I love to crank it up
Make it thump
And evil to the core
Head-banging in the pit
And throwing my horns

And just like old-school Sabbath, Zeppelin and Lemmy
I need to drop it down low
And make it heavy
I like it heavy
I like it heavy

I ride the lightning, roll with the thunder
Going down down down with my sisters and brothers
I fell in love with the darkest parts
Standin’ on the side of the wild at heart

I plucked the feather off a crow so I could fly
Since I was 13 years old I’ve had my fist to the sky

I like it louder than the boom of a big bass drum
I need it harder than the sound of a guitar grunge
I love to crank it up
Make it thump
And evil to the core
Head-banging in the pit
And throwing my horns

And just like old-school Sabbath, Zeppelin and Lemmy
I need to drop it down low
And make it heavy
I like it heavy
I like it heavy

I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
I like it, I like it, I like it heavy

Some like beautiful, perfect and pretty
I see the good in the bad and the ugly

I like it heavy
I like it heavy

I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
I like it, I like it, I like it heavy

Take me home tonight I’ll do anything with you
Buy a bottle of whiskey, we’ll get matching tattoos
Tell me that you love me, oh let me drive your car
We can sit ’til morning light just count every star

‘Cause if there’s a Hell I’ll meet you there
And if there’s a Heaven they’re servin’ beer
And if you’re an angel then I must be high

Oh if there’s a church it’s rock and roll
If there’s a Devil I sold my soul
And it’s alright whatever we do tonight

‘Cause if there’s a God
Dammit she won’t mind
If there’s a God
Baby she won’t mind
