A Song To Make ANYONE Smile: “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD” by KISS (1976)

“…If You Don’t Feel Good

There’s A Way You Could

Don’t Sit There Broken-Hearted

(…Sit There Broken-Hearted…)

Call All Your Friends In The Neighborhood

And Get The Party Started

(…Get The Party Started…)

Don’t Let’em Tell You That There’s Too Much Noise

They’re Too Old To Really Understand

You’ll Still Get Rowdy With The Girls And Boys

‘Cause It’s Time For You To Take A Stand

YEAH YEAH…”

SHOUT IT OUT LOUDIs A Regular Crackerjack Of A Tune From The 1976 AlbumDESTROYERBy Rock-Gods KISS !!!

“…SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD! …”

<<<…….>>>

<<…..>>

<…>

.

I Really Needed To Begin My Day With Something FAST

…And FUN

…And LOUD!!!

To Me…

…That Simply Screamed…

“YOU MUST PLAY SOME KISS!!!”

…And So I DID!!!

😀

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

…Is One Of The All-Time Classic-Greats From Rock-Bizz-Titans…

KISS

…And Is One Of MY Personal Favorites!

When It Popped On Me Ole MP3Player…

…I Knew I’d Found My Wake-Up Jam!

😀       😀

Everyone Has To Start Their Day Differently.

Some Folks Just Roll-Out-Of-Bed And Imediately Hit-The-Showers.

Some Folks Require A Double-Shot Espresso…

(...hopefully with a cheese-danish or something tasty like that...)

…From The Local Starbucks.

Some Folks Just Hit-The-Ground-Running And Go For It.

Folks Like Myself, However, Reuqire Something Special To Begin Our Day’s Riggors.

I Didn’t Wanna Make Coffee TOOOO Early…

(...Though I'm Having Some, Now, As We Jive...)

…So I Needed Me Some Quality Jams!

I Popped On My Player And Here We Are!

🙂

Nifty, Eh?!

NIFTY, INDEED!!

😉

I Awoke In A Pretty Damned Decent Mood This Morning.

I’m Feelin’ Better…

…So I’d Like To Try And Get As Much Work Done As Possible.

I’ve Had A Few Ideas I’d Like To Explore…

…And I’d Like To See If I Can’t Come-Up With A Few More.

That’s Life, Eh?!

Go For One Thing…

…That Thing Turns Into Another Thing…

…That Turns Into, Yet, Another Thing.

And On And On And On.

So We’ll See What I Can Do With This “Damned Decent Mood” I’m Sporting.

Y’all Will Still Be Here When I Get Back, Right?!

GREAT!!

Perhaps Some Of You Just Need That Extra Little Jolt To Get Movin’?!

Well, Then…

…May I Suggest To You An Album Like…

DESTROYER

?!?

It’s A Regular Jim Dandy, Kiddies, Fo SHO!!

I Have The Feeling That Some Of Y’all Could Really Go For Some Of That…

…Sweet…

KISS

…Action!!

And, If That’s The Case…

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

…May Just Be The Perfect Song To Awaken You From Your Zombifyed Morning State!!

It Worked For Me This Morning…

…So PERHAPS Is Could Work For You, Also!!

Now Wouldn’t THAT Be NICE!!

YOU BETCHA, My Peeps!!

Fo SHO!!

😀       😉       😀

EIGHT Cherry-Picked Jams From An A.M. Walk-About!!!

Good Morning, Boys And Girls…

…And Those Of You Whom Are Transgender.

😉

It Is Absolutely GORGEOUS Outside Here, Today.

So You Just KNOW I Had To Go Wandering Around Town.

No Real Destination.

No Real Timetable.

No Real Nothing.

Just Me…

…My MP3Player…

…And My Rubber-Ball.

 (which I squeeze as I walk since I have VERY fidgety hands, but also now have a helluva grip)

It Really Felt Good, Actually.

My Legs Have Been Stiff And Sore For 3-Days, Now.

BUT…

…A Nifty Walk Does Help.

It Doesn’t Take Away The Soreness…

…But It Does Turn My Legs Into Jelly, Thus Relieving Some Of The Stiffness.

ANYWAY…

…My Music This Morning Was TOTALLY ESSENTIAL.

.PERIOD.

Without It…

…Yeah…

…I Wouldn’t Have Lasted The Entire Journey.

As I Said…

…My Legs Have Been Killing Me…

…But The Music Was Quality Enough To Keep Me Movin’ Movin’ Movin’!

Sooooooo…

…Here’s A List Of EIGHT Of My Favorite Tunes From This Morning’s Hike-About-Town.

Are You Ready For This???

GREAT!!!

Some Super Quality Jams, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

Y’all Please TRY To Have A Decent Day.

I’ll Be Working Right Here For The Bulk Of The Day.

Hey, It’s Better Than Punching A Clock, Ya Know?!?

Sure You Do!!!

T’is Hump-Day Wednesday…

…So The Weekend Is Fast Approaching.

I’m Sure We’ll Survive Until Then.

If Not…

…Uh…

…Hmm…

…Well…

…I’m Sure We’ll TRY To Survive Until Then.

There.

Much Better.

Says The Exact Same Thing, Only It Replaces Certainty With Ambiguity.

Now THAT Is How I Like To Handle Things.

For Those Of You Who Know Me Personally…

…Yeah…

…Yeah…

…I Know….

…Ambiguity Is Its Own Language…

…And It’s One Know VERY VERY Well.

😉

I Believe The Common Term To Use Is…

“WISHY WASHY”

…Or Something To That Effect.

Whatever It Is…

…I’m A Freakin’ PRO!!!

😀

SO…

…Please Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps.

I’ll Catch Y’all On The Flip-Side!

🙂

Did Up A Couple Quick Miles, Today. Nearly Passed-Out. But The Tunage SAVED-MY-ASS Once Again!!!

This Morning Began Like Any Other.

I Was Awake Too Damned Early…

…And Had Little To Occupy Myself With For A Bit.

Finally…

…I Says To Myself…

“Dude, Just Put Your GD Shoes On And HIT IT!”

Sometimes…

…I’m Simply Frothing-Over With Excellent Personal Advice.

At Least…

…Excellent Personal Advice For ME.

So I Popped On The Ole NEW BALANCES…

(Still The Best Walking Shoes I've Ever Owned)

…And I Hit The Dusty Trail.

The Temperature Was Acceptable.

The Humidity Level Was NOT Acceptable.

But…

…There Was A Steady Breeze.

To ME…

…Those All Added-Up To…

“Get Your Butt Out There And Kick This Pig!”

And So I Did.

THANK JEEBUS HARRY For QUALITY TUNAGE!!!

In No Real Order…

…Here Are 10-Quality-Jams From This Morning’s Walk-About-Adventure.

If The Oddly-Wild Variations In My Music Styling And Taste Hasn’t Become Blindingly Obvious To Y’all Yet…

…Well…

…Then You Just Don’t Know My Personality.

I Am…

(likely)

…One Of The MOST Random Human Beings You’re Likely To Encounter.

At Least, That’s What My Friends Say.

I Don’t Have Many Of Them…

…Though I’m Starting To Feel That’s A Good Thing.

I’d Rather Have 3 Or 4 People In My World Who DO Get Me…

…As Opposed To 300 Or 400 Who Haven’t The Foggiest.

I Consider That Personal Growth.

Perhaps By Showcasing My Opinions/Wants/Needs/Lusts/Loves I’ll Be Able To Ferret-Out The Remaining Peeps Who Simply Don’t Belong.

I’m A Nut.

I’m A Nut That’s VERY Hard To Crack.

And On The Inside Of The Exterior-Shell…

…You’ll (likely) Find Yet ANOTHER Nut.

😉

But I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way, My Peeps.

Gotta Keep The World Guessing, Right?!?

RIGHT!!!

😀

“I Can’t… Wait A Day. I Don’t Care… What You Say. Oh Yeah… You Got To Pay… When You Hit Rock Bottom And You’re There To Stay. …” — KISS (“Rock Bottom” (1975))

“…Sometimes…

…Late At Night…

…I Want…

…To Hold You Tight.

Oh No…

…You Got To Pay…

…Girl, You Hit Rock Bottom And You’re There To Stay! …”

… … …

“…ROCK BOTTOM… GIRL, YOU KNOW YOU OUGHTA TREAT ME GOOD. ROCK BOTTOM… OH, YOU NEVER TREAT ME LIKE YOU SHOULD. …”

… … …

“…Hard Times…

…Got Me Down.

Good Times…

…Ain’t Around.

Now I…

…Got The Mind To Say…

…Girl, You Hit Rock Bottom And You’re There To Stay! …”

… … …

… …

EASILY And BY FAR…

“ROCK BOTTOM”

…Is My FAVE Of FAVES From The Band…

KISS

!!!

Sadly, I Know So Many People Who Only Know ONE Song By KISS.

And That Song, Of Course, Is…

“ROCK’N’ROLL ALL NITE”

Now, Don’t Get Me Wrong, My Peeps…

…I Have ALWAYS Enjoyed…

“ROCK’N’ROLL ALL NITE”

…Sure Sure.

But It Really IS NOT Their Best Work.

It’s Simply Their Most Popular Work.

So…

…Just To Give Y’all A Little Something Else To Think About…

…I’m Going To Hit Y’all With A “12-In-’12” List.

“My TOP 12 KISS Songs”

Perhaps Seeing The Names Of Them Will Spark Something Within’ You That Says…

“Hey, I Know That One!”

…Or…

“Hey, That One Sounds Cool!”

…Or Something Truly Neato Like That.

Are Ya Ready???

Then Let’s Do This!!!
