In this year of laments, gnashing of teeth, and loathing of the home team, and we're not even talking politics here, we sit and wait as the dismal season of 2011 winds down. Thank the big guy, unless you're Bill Maher of course.
However, before you begin considering naloxene as an antidote to this season's woes, please consider the air is fresh, the sun still shines, and most likely you'll get lucky on New Year's Eve.
With that said, as a tribute to this year's Vikings, I wanted to hand out some award winning songs that in some way will capture the essence of who the Vikings really are. That is not to say that I am going to do my best imitation a la Glee, but a tweak here or there could enhance these songs' playability.
I beg your patience and understanding as I play around with some of the lyrics to these songs. I try to maintain the integrity of the melody and rhythm, not so much the rhyme.
Besides, often it's more about the title than it is the lyrics, but let's have some kicks and giggles as we painfully wish this season from our memory.
