Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.
This week we're playing Travis' Musical Progressions Game. The idea here is to compile a set wherein one track leads into another for a reason that may or may not be obvious.
See if you can guess!
1 - Exogenesis Symphony Pt 1: Overture - Muse
*Just in time for this album's Grammy win for Best Rock Album!*
I can't forgive you
And I can't forget
- Matthew Bellamy
2 - Long Road to Ruin - Foo Fighters
One flag was taken down
To raise another in its place
A heavy cross you bear
A stubborn heart remains unchanged
No home, no life, no love
No stranger singing in your name
- Grohl / Hawkins / Mendel / Shiflett
3 - Polly - Nirvana
Polly wants a cracker
Think I should get off her first
I think she wants some water
To put out the blow torch
Have a seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
- Cobain / Grohl / Novoselic
4 - Letter to God - Courtney Love
I never wanted to be
The person you see
But thank you
Oh God, please tell me now
Are you disappointed? Are you proud?
Haven't I done everything?
I'm so sorry I'm so weak
And I turned into a freak
But I don't know anything
- Linda Perry
5 - Tonight, Tonight - Smashing Pumpkins
The indescribable moments of your life
The impossible is possible, tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight
- Billy Corgan
Note: The meanderings of my mind on this musical progression will be posted on Tuesday.
