Are You Gonna Go My Way? by Lenny Kravitz
This song makes me want to play fuck-all out of the drums AND grow an afro. I remember when I first saw this video, it wasn’t the drool-worthy hotness of Mr. Kravitz that got my attention (or at least not all of it), nor was it the hard to resist danceability that kept me tuning into MTV (back when they played actual music videos) hoping to see it over and over again.
What caught my eye the most was Cindy Blackman, the kick ass female drummer. There she was pounding away - the driving force behind the song. It made me wish, harder than I had since I was in grammar school, that I had forcefully, but respectfully, told my mother to go fuck herself when she wouldn’t allow me to learn to play the drums.
