Tuesday’s Memes – Kanye West

I have not done a good hip hop artist yet and I still haven’t since this one is on Kanye West!  I am kidding…that was a joke…ok, not really!  This collection was too easy to put together so you won’t get any fancy intro or diatribe about Kanye as the memes will speak for themselves.

I hope you enjoy…

My Sunday Song – “Sympathy for the Devil” by The Rolling Stones

For My Sunday Song #102, we explore “Sympathy for the Devil” by the Rolling Stones.  Probably not the best day to be visiting a song about the Devil, but then again maybe it is the best day.  The song is off their 1968 album ‘Beggar’s Banquet’ and went only to #55 on the Billboard Hot 100, but that doesn’t take away from the fact it is one of my favorite Stones’ song.

The song was very controversial for the time and gave the Stones an image of being bad boys as opposed to the clean cut image of that little known band called The Beatles.  The band was accused of being satan worshippers and being into the occult.  The problem is that no matter if they were or were not, people don’t like something different and always tend to look for the bad and always blamed rock & roll.

The song isn’t a celebration for the Devil and the song isn’t even asking you to sympathize with him…although the Devil is asking you to do that when you read the lyrics.  The song is strictly a march through time and all the evil that has occurred throughout.  The person talking in the song is assumed to be the Devil as he travels through time, but is it the devil that was there or just some evil person who the devil is taking the credit?

The song was inspired by the book from Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov and his novel The Master and Margarita.  The book was given to Mick Jagger by his then girlfriend Marianne Faithfull.  When Mick wrote the song, it was originally written as a folk song and quite different than the final version.

The Stones put out a live album of a few weeks back and it made me think…I need to have the Rolling Stones as a topic for the Tuesday Memes.  So, here we are and the Rolling Stones get their own Tuesday Memes.  I hope you have a great week and get a good laugh from these.  Sorry no Halloween related memes, wasn’t feeling it.  Happy Tuesday…

Okay, they are old I get it!!  There were so many old jokes, but I had to use them…

Chuck Berry – R.I.P. – A Rock Legend!

One of the founding fathers of rock & roll and a true pioneer has passed at the tender young age of 90.  Charles Edward Anderson Berry or better known as Chuck Berry had such classic songs like “Maybellene”, ‘Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven”, that inspired so many young kids in the 50’s to turn to rock & roll music and rebel against their parents…in a great way!!!

His guitar work and songs mixed rhythm and blues into what is now known as Rock & Roll.  He was a legend and his music will live on forever.  And to think, if it wasn’t for Marty McFly, we might not have had his music (kidding – Back to the Future joke).  Thank you Mr. Berry for all your greatness.

Here is a video with him and Keith Richards doing “Nadine” back in 1987.
