Playlist Intro by Brockton McKinney:

Musical Espresso is a catch-all sonic journey that I have been curating for years. I often play it each morning. And though I usually hit shuffle, this playlist is the primary twelve tracks so as, the way in which I performed them for Robert Venditti on the primary morning that we began writing Savage Squad 6. I started every new writing day by blasting Musical Espresso at full quantity, for every week. Rob was overjoyed. 

Each music is a pump-you-up-for-the-day banger, and I am fairly excited to see what my artistic cohort has to say about these melodic masterpieces.

Playlist with Commentary by Robert Venditti:

1. Kickstart My Coronary heart — Mötley Crüe

I take pleasure in hair steel. Simply not this music. Or Mötley Crüe. In any respect.

2. The Secret of My Success — Evening Ranger

Think about you are writing with somebody for the primary time, and so they placed on a playlist that begins with “Kickstart My Coronary heart.” Then think about it is adopted up by this music, and when the refrain hits “I’M LIVIN’ TWENTY-FIVE HOURS A DAAAAAAAAAAY,” they slowly elevate their pointer finger to the sky. 

It was at this second that I spotted I had invited the metaphorical vampire into my dwelling, and I had no energy over what may occur subsequent.

3. So Emotional — Whitney Houston

Okay, positive. Whitney Houston is an all-timer voice. Simply not at 8:00 a.m. YMMV.

4. Do not Cease Runnin’ — Y&T

I am undecided why, however once I hear this music, I consider Matthew Modine operating in his rubber go well with in the course of the opening credit of 1985’s Imaginative and prescient Quest. However the music taking part in throughout that scene is not this music, it is “Solely the Younger” by Journey. Which is a greater music as a result of it is by Journey.

5. Fringe of a Damaged Coronary heart — Vixen

I used to be there when this one occurred. Brock and I had been driving in my automotive, and I used to be listening to the Hair Nation channel on Sirius/XM (as beforehand acknowledged, I take pleasure in hair steel). This music got here on, and Brock beginning thumbing at his telephone. Little did I do know he was sentencing “Fringe of a Damaged Coronary heart” forever to his Musical Espresso playlist. 

Congrats, Vixen, you made all of it the way in which as much as quantity 5 within the taking part in order, in order that’s an achievement. I assume? 

6. Leap — Van Halen

The idea album this music seems on was impressed by George Orwell’s 1984. Really, that is not true. What’s true is that I keep in mind seeing this video for the primary time on MTV in 1984. My first thought was, “I did not know Eddie Van Halen might play the piano.”

7. Underneath Stress — Queen & David Bowie

A+ music. No notes. The lyrical and vocal interaction between Freddie Mercury and David Bowie leads to one among my favourite duets ever. 

How a lot do I like this music? A lot that I do not even thoughts the quilt model by Vanilla Ice.

8. 25 or 6 to 4 — Chicago

This music brings me again to my father’s customized van with the shag carpet and wooden paneling, and the 8-track participant that often-played Chicago’s Best Hits. None of what I simply typed is in any manner a fond reminiscence.

9. Metal Claw — Tina Turner

I really don’t assume I’d ever heard this music till Musical Espresso performed it only for me. So I owe Musical Espresso for that. Can’t go unsuitable with Tina Turner.

10. Nothing’s Gonna Cease us Now — Starship

Woof. One of the best factor I can say about this music is it is not “We Constructed This Metropolis,” one other Starship entry on the complete model of the Musical Espresso playlist. In the event you survive lengthy sufficient to get to it.

11. Hungry Just like the Wolf — Duran Duran

A beautiful reprieve. However, to be truthful, each music I’ve ever heard play after “Nothing’s Gonna Cease Us Now” is the perfect music I’ve ever heard. (Except it is a double-shot of Starship and, nicely, .)

12. Inflicting a Commotion — Madonna

I do not thoughts Madonna (try her on-stage cameo within the aforementioned Imaginative and prescient Quest). However there are many her songs that I thoughts lower than this one. Although the opening does sound prefer it could possibly be a foot-chase tune in Beverly Hills Cop.

SUMMATION: So there you could have it, the primary twelve songs in Brock’s 101-song Musical Espresso playlist. (That is the actual quantity; I fact-checked.) You may hearken to the opening salvo proper now on the Spotify hyperlink supplied.
