Work got you feeling sluggish and uninspired? Lethargic even? Then put down that energy drink with the fire-breathing pterodactyl on it, and do this: enroll any American Express® Card, purchase any 5 songs on iTunes® with that Card and your Card account will be automatically credited.
That's right: just enroll any American Express Card, and snag whatever 5 tunes you think'll provide the high-octane you need. If you're not in the mood to choose from the entirety of iTunes, feel free to pluck from these carefully selected amp-you-up specials:
Cheap Trick: She's Tight
A classic screamer from the unlikeliest band ever: two pretty good looking dudes with great hair, a mustachioed drummer who dressed like the manager of a grocery store, and a chubby bald guy with a five
James Gang: The Bomber
3:28 into this chord-crunching masterpiece, you'll be thinking you'll never rock harder as long as you live. Then Joe Walsh will randomly start playing an electric version of Boléro
, and you'll know you were wrong.
Bonde Do Role: James Bonde
Sometimes awesome songs have kind of silly lyrics that make you feel stupid for thinking the song is so awesome. The solution, of course, is to listen to awesome songs recorded in Portuguese.
Los Campesinos!: You! Me! Dancing!
You've definitely heard the first minute and a half of this song on a commercial, but did you know it goes on for a full 6:14, including! some! parts! with singing?!
Zapp: More Bounce to the Ounce
"I never ever, ever seen a sexy girl like you, baby/Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wee/Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wee, hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah". You just can't argue with that.
Twisted Sister: I Am (I'm Me)
This infinitely better version of "We're Not Going to Take It" blows your mind with the heavy-metal fury of...René Descartes!
Andrew W.K.: Never Let Down
The theme of his first record was "party". The theme of his second was high-voltage inspirational balladry -- which didn't prevent him from also including a song called "Long Live the Party".
