There Will Never Be Another You - Chet baker
Chet Baker is awesome!
Dropkick Murphys and Johhny Cash
Since I'm more of a rocker type I would go for Albatross Overdrive with Viking. I love me some good stoner rock: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKmZIVqRAFw&list=PL276BB9FA14079BAA
Dropkick Murphy's- Worker's song, Fields of Athenry (great anthem about sacrifice), Going out in style, Rose Tattoo.
CCR- Fortunate Son
George Thorogood- One bourbon, one scotch, one beer, Movin on Over, Bad to the Bone
AC/DC- For those about to rock, hell's bells, Big Balls (had to throw that one in there)
Metallica- Unforgiven (1 and 2), Enter Sandman
My Chemical Romance- Desolation Row (Dylan may have wrote the lyrics, but MCR give it the treatment it deserves)
Rob Zombie- What? (just because)
I am going to have to go with:
Bring him Home, from Les Miserables.
I find it hard to get more manly than Jean ValJean, and what he does for his adopted daughter, as well as the way that he turns his life around.
O Fortuna from Carl Orff's Carmina Burana
Sinatra - "That's Life"
and, believe it or not, "Suit and Tie" by Timberlake.
Aw, you beat me. I always say O Fortuna whenever this subject comes up. If that song does not make you feel like grabbing a battle axe and horned helmet, running out into the streets and flipping cars whilst screaming "Valhalla, here I come!" at the top of your lungs, then you need to go to a doctor immediately and have a blood test to see if thre is even the slightest trace of testosterone in your veins.
Real Men, by Joe Jackson
What's a man now - what's a man mean
Is he rough or is he rugged
Is he cultural and clean
Now it's all change - it's got to change more
'cause we think it's getting better
But nobody's really sure
And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
And anything by the Beastie Boys, of course.
Not particularly in the man genre,
but You Can't Always Get What You Want has been anthemic for me throughout my life.
