Tune For Tuesday

Today's Tune for Tuesday is from an artist I heard live on Sunday. Yep, Vince Neil. I've seen Vince Neil solo live four times and Motley Crue four times in the last six years. Yes, I am a fan. Here's a few 10 second clips of Vince singing on Sunday. Today's tune is one of those songs, "Kickstart My Heart.' Here's a link to the music video, "Kickstart My Heart."
Kickstart My Heart

Girls, Girls, Girls
During this song, Vince came over to the side stage and put out the microphone for me and a friend to sing a part. When my now 9 year old son was 2, he loved this song because it mentioned Halloween, his favorite holiday ("Trick or Treat, sweet to eat. On Halloween and New Year's Eve"). Though when he got a little older I didn't listen to this song with him...I don't want him asking about where Tattletales and Seventh Veil and the rest of the strip club names are (or what they are for that matter!). Though it was pretty funny seeing a 2 year old boy belt out the words "Girls, girls, girls."

Kickstart My Heart is one of my ringtones on my cell phone, specifically when my mom calls. It's her favorite Crue song, and she's been to four of those previously mentioned eight concerts with me. Other ringtones on my cell phone include "Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns N Roses (just the beginning guitar riff), "Home Sweet Home" by Motley Crue (when I get a call from home), "Attack" by 30 Seconds to Mars, and "Fergilicious" by Fergie (that comes on when my husband calls from his cell. I just thought it would be a funny ring when he calls!). My main ringtone is my all time favorite guitar riff from "Unholy Confessions" by Avenged Sevenfold. What is your ringtone?

Thank you to Debra Schubert for giving me the One Lovely Blog Award yesterday! Thank you, lovely Debra! I enjoyed reading your descriptions of the other bloggers, plus I checked some of them out already!
The Lovely Rules
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Debra cut that down to 10, and I'm cutting it down to 5 (because I'm lazier than her). Honestly I visit SO many truly lovely blogs, here's just five of them.
1. Adrienne at The Story Board not only tells funny stories, but her illustrations are lovely, too.
2. Sherrie at Solvang Sherrie is lovely inside and out. Did you know she participated in the 29 Days of Giving?
3. Christy at Christy's Creative Space deserves a lovely month of May after her rough April!
4. Sam at SL Hastings just went blonder (very lovely new shade, Sam). Plus her snarkiness makes me giggle.
5. Kim Kasch always reminds me to make the world a lovelier place with her Earth Friendly Fridays.

My phone just makes a boring ring. I must spend time thinking about ring tones...I'll get back to you!

Congrats on the award!

Thanks, Kelly! *blush*

My son's favorite song when he was two was "Crazy Train" by Ozzy. He was totally into trains and it was the only train song we knew so my husband taught it to him. It cracked us up to hear him belting it out with Ozzy :^)

I love those songs and will be singing them all day. That's not a bad thing!

My ringtone? "Brick House." Cracks me up.

Your post takes me back to 11th grade. I love, love, love Motley Crue. Kickstart My Heart is one of my faves, too!
The list of songs I let my kiddos listen to when they were babies and toddlers (it wasn't Baby Mozart) has shrunk considerably over the years. I'm with you. I just don't want to have to do any explaining. I'm trying to get them to listen to Mozart now, but I think they are true headbangers at heart :)

Kelly, You deserve this award! You're lazier than me? Now, that's a feat! I agree with your son. Halloween's my favorite holiday, too.;-)

"During this song, Vince came over to the side stage and put out the microphone for me and a friend to sing a part."

It's so cool that you got to see him and hang out with your sister and your mom. My mom isn't a huge fan of music that I listen too (she's more of a classical person) but she's always been willing to listen if I want to share (and sometimes even likes the song).

My ring tone is the boring one that came with the phone, but it's perfect since almost nobody else has it. Besides, I've tried other ringtones, and they're hard to hear in the city. The one that came with the phone is just louder and more annoying and thus easier to hear.

If I lived somewhere else, I'd pick favorite songs and change them depending on what I was in the mood for ;)

Thanks for the blog award!
So, did you and your friend sing?

Kelly said...

Of course! Just two words..
"At Tattletales!" :)

Suzanne Casamento said...

How can you resist Motely Crue? I hear it and I'm instantly back in high school, big haired and ready for anything. (So I thought.)

So funny you mention the Seventh Veil. I lived down the street from it for years and still can't pass it without hearing the song in my head.

Wow! MC brings back memories!

U R such a sweetie!

In high school my band auditioned for the talent show with "Home Sweet Home". I completely humiliated myself, but that's too long a story for your comment section.

Sorry I couldn't make it to Wilmette today!
