I'm posting Two for Tuesday for today because I think I'll be tired and grumpy tomorrow (I'm flying back to Alexandria, VA).

These two songs have something in common in that the band names have whole new meaning today:

1. Eye of the Tiger by Survivor

2. Moonlight Feels Right by Starbuck

All In The Family, cont.

The S African band Kongos could be part of this family band post too, made up of brothers. Here's a couple of Come Together songs, only 1 of which is a Beatles cover - and it's shared with a Dr. Dre rap. Echosmith's Come Together video is based on The Breakfast Club, a movie way older than they are. The Kongos cover the Beatles classic live at Firefly music festival - another family tie is my 2 daughters are in this crowd, June 20th in Dover Del.

Memorial Songs with Even More Tragedy
 
Two memorial songs here today that have even more tragedy in their history. The song Mighty KC was written about the death of Kurt Cobain by Gainsville FL band For Squirrels. The band was breaking having just signed a record deal when coming back from a show at historic CBGB's in NY a van crash killed the lead singer/songwriter, the bassist, and the tour manager. The prophetic lyrics of this song makes the story even more haunting. The video was released after the accident and features pics of the For Squirrels as well as KC. From the web:

There’s no use walking on eggshells, folks – the story of For Squirrels is one of the most ridiculously depressing stories of one-hit wonderdom ever. Not just within the ’90s alternative arena – ever.

It basically shakes out like this: a bunch of kids in Florida got together, like kids all over the country, to goof around and play guitar. They started playing local coffee houses and actually got the chance to open for a real band. And they blew. They didn’t have it, they weren’t serious, and everyone could tell. So the band sat down and decided, look, let’s go big or go home. Let’s **** or get off the pot. Let’s be the biggest band in the world, or die trying.

And the truly terrible thing is, that’s precisely what happened to them. They recorded a pretty good album called Baypath Road – lots of REM influence, which got them signed to Sony. Sony ponied up the money for their major label debut Example. And, holy Cobain, that’s a great record. Start to finish, it’s 10 songs of pure jangly guitar bliss, with bursts of glorious punk aggression. They’re starting to sound less like REM, too, by this point. They’re starting to sound like For Squirrels.

Jack Vigliatura ‘s their lead singer, a stocky formidable guy with an undeniable ear for an amazing hook. As someone who pretends to write songs in his spare time, I’ve learned more from his vocal and lyrical style than I’d care to admit. He writes songs about disenchantment, megalomania, Florida, and death. And Kurt Cobain. Ostensibly. It’s more of a tone poem. But it’s obviously great – there’s a lot of interesting stuff going on here, including a nice contrast between the verse and the chorus that makes the tune feel way more like an anthem than it should.

Seriously, they almost made it. There’s nothing that says that, in an alternate universe, this band isn’t as big, as fondly remembered, as any of those other bands in your collection. And then, one horrible day in September of 1995, they’re driving back home from a show at CBGB’s in New York, when their van blows a tire, flips over on I-95, and kills Jack, bassist Bill White, and Tim Bender, their tour manager.

Let’s get overtly metaphorical here, because we can: their last show is at CBGB’s in New York – traditionally, the place where bands play just before they break big. Their album is about to be released by Sony. The band is driving home to Gainesville, Florida. Their van flipped just south of Savannah, Georgia. It takes seventeen hours to drive from New York, NY to Gainesvile, FL. For Squirrels were about three hours from home when their van flipped. They almost made it.


Next up is Bro Hymn by CA punk band Pennywise. The song was originally written about the deaths of bassist Jason Thirsk's friends who had died in a car accident (2) and a drowning. Attached is the original Bro Hymn with Lyrics with the friends "Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you". Tragedy strikes here as well as in 1996 Jason Thirsk took his own life by shotgun. The song is now played with the line: "Jason Matthew Thirsk, this one's for you", and renaming the track "Bro Hymn Tribute".

A similar ending for Jim Croce, singer in the second video I posted, but in that he did break into the big time, only to be killed in a plane crash a couple of months after "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" became a huge hit in the US.
