For an epic birthday weekend, you need an epic song to kick things off.
Gold Coast resident and local musician, Muky, is celebrating a bit of a milestone today.
I thought about it long and hard, looked on youtube, wracked my brains, asked around, checked all my playlists….. I needed a certain level of over-the-top epic-ness……
Here’s the checklist I used. The song and video MUST have:
- A waterfall
- A dove
- Long, flowing rock hair
- Unfeasibly wide guitar stances
- Live footage of the band playing on a colossal sandstone plateau within a forested canyon
- Ancient underground caves
- Some sort of lightening explosion
- Guitarists playing back-to-back guitar harmony lines
- A searing white-hot guitar solo captured in panorama from a helicopter
- Feather adornments if at all possible
As I went through the shortlist of songs, it proved hard to check off any of my prepared list items …until… finally I found it….the perfect song.
Well not exactly perfect, there’s no dove for one, and the lyrics don’t quite capture the occasion, but it scored 9/10 on the list above and the song delivers ‘epic’ like no other.
Happy Birthday Muky!
