How You Like Me Now: Sammy Hagar, The Heavy, Sugarcult

“HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW”            THE HEAVY

First heard this song during the movie, “The Fighter”, one of my favorite films in the last year.   Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, Amy Adams, even Mark Wahlberg…..so many great performances.  The Heavy feature a great hip hop beat over rock guitars on this one.  This is kind of a double sample as Kool Moe Dee had a hit with this in the 80’s sampling James Brown’s “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag”.   Kia Sorrento used this for their commercial, great song got a lot of publicity!



“KAMA”                            SAMMY HAGAR

Sammy wrote this beautiful song about his daughter, Kama, who is now a teenager in high school.   Check out these lyrics and imagine if your mom and dad wrote this about you:


Today, I just wrote a song about you
The words, they flow just like the air I breathe
The closest I’ve ever been
To truly understanding
The closest we’ll ever be
To the meaning of life so sacred
So what do we call this miracle we’ve made
And how can I find one word to say it
When all I’m feeling, here and now, is love
So that will always be you
Kama

“PRETTY GIRL”                         SUGARCULT

“That’s what you get for falling again
you can never get ’em out of your head
Its the way
That he makes you feel
Its the way
that he kisses you
Its the way
that he makes you fall in love”
Life is unpredictable, when you find love, you need to hold onto it with everything you’ve got.    This song is a perfect fall in love song with lyrics that describe all of the little things that draw you into someone (although in this song, it’s the wrong one for you but love is blind!)
