One At A Time

Continuing with the 80s Action Movie nostalgia parade that is the The Action Pact project, I have this track called One At A Time. The track is about how the protagonist in action movies, when confronted with a mob of criminals, has the good fortune of all the members of the mob coming for him/her one by one, without shooting or stabbing hime/her.

Lyrics
When I’m fighting my enemies
They come One At A Time
I got enough whup ass for all of you
Come on, get in line

The got me – Surrounded
But I’ve got the will to win
Everybody gets pounded
It’s just bare Nuckles on Skin
I am never ever gonna lose
‘Cause I know they know the rules
It could be One Hundred Fools
But one by one they pay their dues

When I’m fighting my enemies
They come One At A Time
I got enough whup ass for all of you
Come on, get in line
When I’m fighting my enemies
They come One At A Time
I got enough whup ass for all of you
Come on, get in line

One At A Time

Loose Cannon

I’m continuing the trend of Rock and Metal music with an 80s Action Movie Cliche/Trope theme. This one is Loose Cannon, not attached to a podcast, just some the possible beginnings of a parody/theme Rock EP tentatively titled The Action Pact. The trope here, for the uninitiated is that the protagonist cop in a lot of action movies gets suspended from the police department for unnecessary or brutal force. Generally yelled at by the angry police chief. The following song is the hero cop’s lament.

Lyrics

Turn in my badge
Turn in my gun
Kicked off the force because I get the job done
I’m a loose
Loose Cannon

All I did was
Blow up a neoghborhood but listen
I only did it with some Really Good Intentions
There were Drug Dealers and Thugs
Everyone doing harm
But I am the law
And I know I got these really long arms

I’m a loose
Loose Cannon
Turn in my badge
Turn in my gun
Kicked off the force because I get the job done
I’m a loose
Loose Cannon

No Time To Bleed

Just like I made a track for The Black Guy Who Tips Podcast for their segment on ridiculous action movies called “Impossible White Man,” I decided to lay a track down for the Nerdpocalypse Podcast as well for their action movie segment, “No Time to Bleed.” Shoot, I might just make an EP.

Lyrics

Come on Tough Guys I got all the bullets you need
I got time to kill but got NO TIME TO BLEED
When it comes to hot lead, better to give than receive
I got you a present but got NO TIME TO BLEED

I GOT – NO TIME – TO BLEED
(No not at all)
I GOT – NO TIME – TO BLEED
(No not at all)
I GOT – NO TIME – TO BLEED

NO time to Bleed

Impossible White Man

I listen to a lot of podcasts. One of my favorites is The Black Guy Who Tips, a podcast where the slogan is, “Nothing is wrong if it’s funny.” The Podcast is hosted by Rodimus Prime and his wife Karen. In the show he brings up his favorite genre of movie, a sub-genre of Action Films called “Impossible White Man.” The qualifiers for what makes a movie fit this genre are listed on this page.  A while ago Rodimus touted Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, as a good example of this kind of film. I finally got around to watching it and it inspired the most amazing thing! A song by me. The one below.

Lyrics

How does he do it
Is he specially trained
If it moves he can shoot it
It cannot be explained
He’s not unlikely, not just improbable
Mows down his enemies, he’s so unstoppable
Survives by any means, it seems illogical
He is the White Man, we call impossible
He is impossible
(Impossible White Man!)
He is the white man, we call impossible
(Impossible White Man!)
He is impossible
(Impossible White Man!)x4
He is impossible
