heres 2 more back to back from 1988 when i was 10 years old. the first of the two has an ironic story behind it. in 5th grade, one of my life long friends (Dee Dee) that according to everyone, ive literally known since birth cause her birthday is july 4th 1978 and mines july 30th 1978 and her mom was taking her in for a check up the day i was born and since her mom and my mom are friends, they were, of course THERE when i was born. anyway, in 5th grade, we drew each others names for the christmas gift exchange. and her mom worked at capitol records at the time, so Dee Dee gave me a picture record of this song im about to post and told me, "this song reminds me of you".
(FYI, this picture record is worth damn near as much as my darth vader guitar!!)
Iron Maiden - "Can I Play With Madness"
and of course this song on the same album as i was just learning what i was.
And if you could take the lyrics to "Anywhere Is" by Enya, and make it darker and more intimidating, possibly set it to metal, that might make a good theme song, too. Or even if Enya set it to something like her "Pax deorum" or "Cursum Perficio." It's too...happy and cheerful the way it's sung now, but it has potential...
