Funky Knutts – Songs to give you that Friday Feeling (Week 12)
Friday is here again which means it’s time for this week’s Funky Knutts!
This week has been a fairly standard one in the Knutter household, which is nice actually. Normal is good after the tragic events of this week which have been all over the news. I have tried to make the most of ‘normal’ moments as much as possible, even changing the toddlers crap nappies…well, maybe not that but you know what I mean.
One good thing to come out of this week was bagging a couple of tickets to see a band me and Mr Knutts love for later in the year. That band is, Metallica. I know they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, and they weren’t mine when I first met hubster, but after listening to them as the years went by, I began appreciating what amazing musicians they are and I have come to love this band.
My favourite album of theirs is one they recorded live with the San Francisco orchestra back in 1999. You probably wouldn’t assume classical orchestra’s and heavy metal go together, but believe me, they do. Metallica’s music blends so seamlessly with the classical instruments and this album is now in my top 5 albums of all time. It’s just brilliant and I can loose myself in it for ages.
So, roll on October when we get to see them. I feel very lucky that, all being well, I will have seen the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Guns and Roses and Metallica by the end of the year.
Life is all about experiences and not things…
