It’s Ovah!

Your family will never look this cool...

meccamuzakmondaysThanks to an extended “weekend”, Monday sure did sneak up on me fast.  By my mental calendar, this should still be Sunday, and it’s possible that you may wish it really was.  But don’t wish Monday away, because that means you get treated to another awesome melody from the Mecca Muzak playlist!  YAY!

This week, me and DJ Scratchy have decided to go country again.  Now hold on a minute!!!  Before you quickly back away and find a more interesting post on someone else’s blog, let me just say that this isn’t some lameass, twangy, boot scootin’ country music that’ll make you think you’re pickin’ and grinnin’ on the set of Hee Haw…

The ESN complaint line is now open.

Today’s musical guest is The Band Perry, a relatively recent trio consisting of siblings Kimberly, Neil, and Reid Perry.  They had one of their hits from 2013 land on last Fall’s Mecca CD, and this one is so rockin’, it would blow the price tag right off of Minnie Pearl’s hat if they performed it at the Grand Ole Opry.  Here’s the music video for their epic song, “DONE.”

Women with an attitude almost always make for great music, and this is one of my absolute favorites.  The irony of “DONE.”, however, is despite the fact that it’s your typical girl power song, it was actually written by the brothers!

All I wanna be is DONE.

All I wanna be is DONE.

I watched the video for the first time before I wrote today’s post, and came away a bit unimpressed with that effort.  First of all, this is another song with awesome drum work, and yet the drummer is conspicuously absent from the group scenes.

No, you don't count as a drummer... pa rumpa pum pum.

No, you don’t count as a drummer… pa rumpa pum pum.

This is yet another issue I have with “bands” who try to do it all, or do it with uncredited performers… they look so phony trying to play one of their songs.

Secondly, the “story” we see during the few moments the band The Band Perry isn’t seen on screen is like a real life chess match that is much more build-up and posturing than actual action.  It’s kind of like boxing, where all the real drama happens at the weigh-in, and the actual fight itself ends on a TKO in 90 seconds…

Let's get ready to..... oh wait, it's over.  At least I get a cut of all that Pay-Per-View money you just wasted!

And if any of the guys (or even the gals) thought that Kimberly Perry looked pretty hot in that video… just calm down.  She’s already taken, and by someone you probably know if you follow Major League Baseball.  Just this past June, she married current Texas Rangers catcher J.P. Arencibia…

Now J.P. has something to fall back on when his disappointing career is DONE.

And that does it for this week’s edition of Mecca Muzak Monday.  On a personal note, between adjusting back to my regular schedule over the weekend, and fighting a losing battle with my overgrown backyard that will continue tomorrow, I’ve gotten several days behind in reading up on all of your blogs’ most excellent contents.  I promise to catch up as much as I can, as soon as I can… and don’t be afraid to slap me upside the head if you have something I really need to see!

Like I'd need to remind you of that anyway...

    I haven’t smacked you upside the head in a long time….now excuse me while I boot scoot boogie right on outta here…you saw nothing.

    I was thinking the same thing about the drummer. And what was up at the first five seconds? It looked like he smeared a nosebleed under his eyes, for why?

    Not a bad song though.

  5. I loved the costumes especially the dresses! One should ALWAYS over dress to announce when they are done!

  6. Wow. My life goal is now to have a family that looks that cool. I already have a semi-large white fluffy dog. I think I can get them to wear the vests, but I’m not sure about the man-purse. No, can’t do the man-purse. Not sure about the scarf on the males. I’ll keep working on it. Wow, brothers who write power girl songs for their sisters. I wonder if any sisters write “angry white boy” music for their brothers. I’ll look into it and have my people call your people.

  7. Its not awful…….but country music…… Oh. The boys are veasy one the eye though, that helped lol
