Music on Monday: Percussion Gun

I’ve been running more lately. And hard. The kind of run where at the end you fist-pump and yell out TAKE THAT MOTHER-TRUCKERS! My neighbors probably don’t like it but they’re certainly not going to approach the crazy foreigner and ask me to stop.

When I get to like the 42 minute 17 second mark of my run, I start to feel like dying. It’s a brief, roughly 3 minute sputter that, if I can get through, leads to a very, very strong finish. Which is where ‘Percussion Gun’ comes in.

Firstly, don’t you love when a lead singer plays an instrument other than the guitar? Me too. Secondly, if this song doesn’t make you want to sprint and/or jump-kick, you need to be examined because you are dead inside.
