5 Songs That Fuel The Madness

I’ve  always said that you can learn a lot about a person by knowing their favorite songs. Music is a very intimate affair. We all walk around with personalized soundtracks rolling through our minds, the tempo matching our moods.

As I get older, I find that I grow deep attachments to less and less new songs. Yeah, maybe I’m getting too old for this shit. That being said, over the past decade, there have been a few gems that have taken root in my DNA.  So, you wanna know Hunter? (be careful what you wish for) Well, here are my 5 favorite songs of the past 10 or so years. I can listen to them every single day and never grow tired.

#1 : Sail by Awolnation. Nothing fits the inner machinations of my mind better than this song. I first heard it on an episode of Longmire (one of my favorite TV shows) and I was blown away.

#2: Madness by Muse. This is 1 of 2 songs by Muse on my list. Frigging hypnotic.

#3: Knights of Cydonia by Muse. Think spaghetti western in space. I dare you to come up with a cooler concept.

#4: Teenagers by My Chemical Romance. It’s so wrong to dig this song so much. I guess that’s what makes it so right. I’m not happy at all that they recently broke up.

#5: The Walk by Mayer Hawthorne. This is the oddball of the bunch, but if you really listen to the lyrics, you’ll understand. Plus, I’m a huge Marvin Gaye fan and this is the closest a white guy will ever get to the master.

About Hunter Shea

Hunter Shea is the product of a misspent childhood watching scary movies, reading forbidden books and wishing Bigfoot would walk past his house. He doesn’t just write about the paranormal – he actively seeks out the things that scare the hell out of people and experiences them for himself. Hunter’s novels can even be found on display at the International Cryptozoology Museum. His video podcast, Monster Men, is one of the most watched horror podcasts in the world. You’ll also find him every week on the Final Guys podcast, available everywhere. He’s a bestselling author of over 30 books, all of them written with the express desire to quicken heartbeats and make spines tingle. Living with his wonderful family and two cats, he’s happy to be close enough to New York City to gobble down Gray’s Papaya hotdogs when the craving hits.
