Tune for Tuesday

Today’s Tune for Tuesday is “Hypnotize” by System of a Down. System of a Down is an Armenian-American hard rock band. “Hypnotize” is from their Hypnotize platinum album released in 2005.
I first heard this song on the radio and purchased it right away on ITunes. My daughter was in preschool at the time and would always take a long time getting buckled in the car after I picked her up. Instead of getting frustrated (okay, sometimes I did get frustrated…), I would just put this song on and wait for her to be ready. (She’s still a lollygagger by the way!)
The chorus fits the situation perfectly.
“I’m just sitting in my car and waiting for my girl!”
We now refer to this song as her song. The rest of the song lyrics are somewhat political, as many of System of a Down’s songs are, but obviously it is "her song " due to the chorus.
The harmonizing in the song by lead singer, Serj Tankian, and guitarist, Daron Malakian, is absolutely beautiful. I purchased many more System songs after listening to this one. Serj Tankian has an amazing voice, and I’d probably buy his CD if it was him singing his grocery list! My husband and I also saw System of a Down live when they headlined Ozzfest a few years ago. They were an amazing band live as well.

Cool "White Trash" video, Kelly. I can't find a comment tag for it though.
