I get the occasional headache here and there, and it bugs me out if I want to listen to Motörhead or other metal bands. I also listen to a lot of psych indie and alternative, so I kind of turn to that if my head does hurt.
The problem is, even soft psych will fuck me over. Like seriously, I can’t even listen to Tame Impala or Sir Sly while I have a headache.
There is only one song I can listen to that makes my head feel better: “Santa Fe” by Beirut.
No joke, this song is so easy to listen to. If you have a headache and you still want to listen to music, listen to that song.
So I guess this thread was kind of made to recommend this song if you haven’t listened to it yet or if you need music for headaches.
But what do you guys listen to when you have headaches? I know it’s not right to listen to music on a headache but who gives a shit really.
What’s your favourite Motörhead song? My personal favourites are “Eat The Rich”, “I’m So Bad (Baby I Don’t Care)” and “Hellraiser”, and I’m interested in what some of your favourites are. I saw a guy with a Motörhead jacket on my ski hill (if you have a Motörhead jacket plz donate to me) and I asked him what his favourite song was and he said he didn’t know the band too well but he said he likes their most popular song, which is obviously “Ace of Spades”. So I don’t know if I should be mad as a metalhead because he was technically being a poser, but at least he listened to the music and knew they were a band. Plus, he said he needs to listen to them more. My job on the mountain is to remind people to listen to more metal.
Also Lemmy is a god. I was very annoyed when I lost his autobiography in Russia. It was such a good read and I was like halfway through. Now I’m going to have to buy another copy of the book, and I got the other copy for only 2 pounds in London from some sketchy record shop! It’s a shame really. Oh well.
