Mob Wives: Gangster Music
It's Sunday morning. I imagine a million plus viewers are probably munching on dry spaghetti waiting for tonight's episode of Mob Wives. I am not munching on dry spaghetti. I am actually eating a Bagel-ful. Bagel-fuls are so fucking delicious. Apple cinnamon with cream cheese are my favorite.
We write what we write around here. A lot of times it is so not nice. It's sad actually because we're not even trying to be mean. Mob Wives just brings out our inner mean with some of their bullshit. Today though I decided to rewatch the premiere episode and finally episode 2 completely. I realized we can write whatever we want about VH1's Mob Wives series. However, we would be liars if we wrote that Mob Wives doesn't have the best soundtrack of any show on air today. The music they are playing during all the mobette's shanigans is pure fire.
Off course I have to mention Big Bang by Rock Mafia. I never heard or listened to the group before this show. I am not going to lie and write I am going to run out and buy their CD. However, I really like the theme song of Mob Wives. So a big thanks to Rock Mafia.
I have a music lover's beef with Raphael Saadiq. I don't like how he threw Dawn his group mate under the bus. He ran over her and backed up. Mr. Saadiq's talent is undeniable. His gift is giving the sixties & seventies sound a modern spin. It's familar but not old. It's fresh, comfortable, soulful and simply great music. He is on my boycott list. However, his single Good Man makes me want to remove him from my list. I think about it for 5 minutes. Mr. Saadiq stays on the list. Hey, I am stubborn what can I write.
My favorite song so far is Trepasser by Deluka. One I am a huge European Alternative Rock whore. Deluka is that sound mixed with a rough edge. I love her voice. I will 100% be buying Deluka's CD. I am chumping at the bit to hear more music from Deluka.
Other singles are Get Some by Lykke Li, With or Without You by Kirsten Price, Perfect Day by The Constellations, Loving You is Killing Me by Aloe Blacc and Wicked by Jupiter Rising. Can we revisit Get Some? Thanks! The lyrics, "Like a shot gun needs an outcome. I am prostitute. You're going to get some" are hysterical. Why did someone in my home just walk pass singing this song? Hell naw! I can't take another surprise. It is an entertaining song I must write that for the record.
Prayin' is another hot single by Plan B. I usually try plan A first. Hell but if all of Plan B's music is as good as this single I may hit up Best Buy or iTunes for more of their music. By the way, I am praying none of the Mob Wives take offense to this blog. We are really nice people. We just blog mean. Well I know Chiara is pen & notebook ready to write her review for episode 3 of Mob Wives. So if you just stumbled on this blog by accident we beg you to tune in tonight @ 8/7 central to catch Mob Wives. Hey, we may not be their biggest fans nor goonettes. Yet, if they are cancelled or aren't picked up for a second season; what will we blog about?! Housewives blogging about recipes and kids are so yesterday. So check out VH1 tonight and then come back and tell us what you think.
