Music Monday: Fooled You

by Scott Lydon

Happy Music Monday! It's April 1st, and if you don't know what day this is, you're in biiiiig trouble. But if you do, great! You've guessed what our theme is this week! We'll let Scott get started with his first foolish choice:

Led Zeppelin - Fool In The Rain

 

A lovely song from an often-underrated Zep album, this fool is one of those guys who fell in love with the wrong woman. But if it wasn't for loving and losing, where would songs like this come from?

We get more foolish inside, after the jump. See you fools there...

As always, remember our Spotify playlist will be featuring a great selection from last week's Music Monday comments. The theme of the mix this time is Commercial Jingles and yet, it doesn't make us any extra money. How can that be? But before you start reminiscing, check out our current Music Monday, right now.

World Party - Ship Of Fools

 

Ever been on a road trip with your friends? Yes? Well, then you understand what a ship of fools is all about. Have fun now, pay tomorrow. Sometimes, though, it's worth it.

Thin Lizzy - Fool's Gold

 

All that glitters isn't always gold, and not every trip turns out positive. Just because there's promise, you'll still have to work if you want to succeed. Heartbreak and loss are always close behind joy and success.

Social Distortion - King Of Fools

 

Maybe you're good at pool, or poker, or gambling, or sports, or or or. But you're still gonna get your heart broken sooner or later. Is it any wonder so many fool songs are written about love? And speaking of which...

Steve Perry - Foolish Heart

 

Nobody gets to decide who they fall in love with. It just happens! Face it, the heart is the dumbest organ in the body. If only we could stop trusting it, maybe fools would be a thing of the past.

Foolishly quick this week. Now it's your turn to play the fool! Once you've shared your fool song, stumble into our Turntable.fm room for the regular Music Monday enjoyment. Also, let us just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use.
