#MFMF43: Associate Watch and Features Editor Asaph’s “Guitar Hero” Playlist

In case you guys didn’t know, our digital contents are governed by a weekly theme; though we interpret them rather loosely at times. This week’s theme is “Friendship” and the first thing that comes to my mind for today’s #MFMF is the good ol’ days when I was hanging out at my friend’s playing Guitar Hero/Rock Band (we had a full band — drums, vocalist, guitar & bass) for hours.

Here are our favourite hits we rock to and how our playlist would be like.

Oasis — Don’t Look Back in Anger

This would be our warm-up song — it is of moderate difficulty, all the instruments have a good share in the song, the vocals are manageable and bonus for having a good guitar solo.

Score: 4 out of 5 stars.

System Of A Down — Chop Suey!

If Don’t Look Back in Anger is a warm-up jog, this would be a mad interval of sprints. The rhythm of the song goes slow, fast, slow, fast, very fast and by then you’re in panic mode trying to hit all the notes. If we ever manage to clear this song, it’s because of my friend who’s on the vocals.

Score: 2 out of 5 stars if we scrape through.

Queen — Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody would be our chill song after going through a series of hard-hitting tracks; sort of like a recovery phase to prep us for the next round of madness. The notes are a crawl, the melodies are soothing and all hell breaks loose when it hits the A cappella segment. 

I see a little silhouetto of a man / Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? /

Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me / (Galileo) Galileo, (Galileo) Galileo, Galileo Figaro magnifico

Score: 4 out of 5 stars because we get so sleepy and start missing notes.

Survivor — Eye of the Tiger

We weren’t too familiar with the song title when we first started playing back then, but when the music came on, we knew it was Rocky. It became our go-to song, we played it on repeat on several occasions and it eventually became our highest scoring song ever. 

Risin’ up, back on the street / Did my time, took my chances / Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet / Just a man and his will to survive

Score: 5 gold stars out of 5, which is equivalent to 6 stars.
