OK. Unusual title I know, you think we are missing a word and that word is up. If you think that then you must be new here. While we are a pro-Trump political blog, we are also a pro-man conservative blog. We are men that are tired of sacrificing everything for nothing. Here at the DC Rambler we are taking bad our manhood and if you don’t like that, you can run back to Mommy’s basement and tell on us. Heck, we beg you to do so.
So let’s start with Lionel Ritchie’s “Easy Like Sunday Morning.” This was him declaring he had enough of relationships and wanted to go it on his own.
Yes, men are great working in teams and with other people, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like their alone time. This is just part of who we are. There was strife and conflict between two of the great Australian lyricists from Little River Band, Shorrock penned this classic “Cool Change” stating how he wanted his alone time from the band.
Here is a secret, all men are fathers, even if they don’t have children. I myself had two fathers, no not like that, my Dad and my Brother. I take after my Mom, not my dad both in appearance and personality, so when she died I was pushed out of the way, because I reminded him of her. My Brother picked up where he left off. When my Dad died I went to a strip club, when my brother died I cried for 5 hours. As I grew older and sometimes not wiser I learned that division was further increased by his dementia and people trying to control him to control the money. So Mike and the Mechanics’ “The Living Years” is a poignant song for Dad’s every where
A lot of people would like to portray men as D-Fens from “Falling Down” just waiting for us to turn in to some killer. In reality we are him and then some, we are not the killer but we are the punching bag. Instead of giving up and lying down, we pick up ourselves and start again. i.e. ‘I didn’t fail, I just found 10,000 ways not to do something.’ or Walt Disney’s. failed advertising company. Men are strong and resilient. We face our problems, because of this we have the right to take what we want. Rascal Flatt’s “Stand.”
I know I am going to upset some of my readers’ with this choice, but we too are romanticists and conquerors of the female heart. You know the tired old line of men putting on Barry White’s Music. So i give you Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight.” Remember men, don’t ask her, tell her.
And of course, everyday we go to our soul crushing job to provide for our family. We love our time with our brothers just as much as we love our time alone. So the “Boys Are Back in Town” by Thin Lizzzie.
