Some things never get old in the world of music. That is what I think. It may have been around for decades or less than a decade and yet I still love it. Some may not agree because they are tired of it after all those years. Perhaps the reason why I still love it is because it makes me happy no matter how many times I see it or hear it. It could be a band or a song in this case and no matter how popular, overused, or how much it changes I will always love it. Some may choose to let it go but that is their choice. I prefer to keep it with me forever.
You obviously know who these guys are:
Lordi has also played this song on TV shows quite a lot with playbacks but it’s not up to them to make those decisions. For instance I tuned in to watch The Late Late Show Eurosong 2013 online which was happening in Dublin, Ireland and Lordi didn’t come until the very end of the show and they played HRH. A lot of fans seemed quite disappointed or irritated while I on the other hand enjoyed rocking out to the song pretending that I was actually present at this event in Dublin. I love this song and probably do more than other fans because I didn’t go through the whole Eurovision thing seven years ago. Some songs are overplayed yes but depending on the song it is still a great song to me. But if you were to use something like a Justin Bieber song which is overplayed then that’s a different story since I don’t like him. Even if I am the only Lordi fan left on this planet that loves HRH that will not bother me. It is kind of like the time I was the last of all the girls in elementary school to outgrow Barbie dolls. I love HRH because it’s catchy in the lyrics and melody. I’ve already told you the main reason why I like it the most haven’t I?
Now I don’t mean to insult people who don’t like the way KISS currently is and/or don’t like hit songs by Lordi that are still being played seven years after they made the band win a big contest like Eurovision. If you’re reading this entry right now and you hate Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer or you love Lordi but are tired of HRH I do not wish to offend you because that is your decision to no longer consider things like these, legends, mega-hits, or popular anymore. To me in my heart things like KISS, and Lordi’s song HRH are always legends to me no matter how much they change or are played. That is why I say that to me, legends never die.
