Song Of The Week: 3/18/12
Song: "I Wanna Make It Wit Chu"
Artist: Queens Of The Stone Age
Album: "Over The Years And Through The Woods"
"I Wanna Make It Wit Chu" is a song that appears to be about a relationship that's all about the sex. The vocalist doesn't appear to be about to candy coat it either. He's not about love songs or giving her the stars or the moon, he's about giving her sex... again and again!!! "I Wanna Make It Wit Chu" or just "Make It Wit Chu" was originally recorded and released on Queens Of The Stone Age's 2007 album, "Era Vulgaris". It was the third single off of that album. The version of the song I chose was taken from Q.O.T.S.A.'s live album/dvd "Over The Years And Through The Woods". All the recordings for that album were taken from Queens' performances at London's Brixton Academy on August 22, 2005 and at KOKO on August 23, 2005. Queens Of The Stone Age formed as a band in 1996 after the break up of lead vocalist Josh Homme's former band Kyuss. Queens is known to be a big riff band. They play a style of rock music that can sometimes be called "robotic" in that sometimes they'll just ride a groove throughout a song without many changes. During the band's career, they have released five studio recordings, their most successful being 2002's "Songs For The Deaf", thanks to the hit singles "No One Knows" and "Go With The Flow". That album was also helped out with the drumming of ex-Nirvana and current Foo Fighter, Dave Grohl. In fact, Queens Of The Stone Age would be somewhat of a revolving door when it came to band members. Josh Homme would always be the constant as lead singer, guitarist and chief songwriter but several key musicians worked with Queens at various times throughout the years including the aforementioned Dave Grohl, Mark Lanegan of The Screaming Trees, Nick Oliveri of Kyuss, Troy Van Leeuwen of A Perfect Circle and Alain Johannes of Eleven. The band's last studio release was 2007's "Era Vulgaris". Since then the band members mostly worked on other side projects most notably was Them Crooked Vultures which featured Josh Homme on guitar and vocals, Dave Grohl on drums and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin on bass. That band released an album and toured for much of 2009 and 2010. In 2010 and 2011, Homme reworked and remastered Queens' first two albums, 1998's self titled and 2000's "Rated R" for release featuring several b-sides as bonus material. Currently, as of the beginning of 2011, it has been confirmed that Queens Of The Stone Age have been in the studio working on new material for what will be their sixth studio album. No date has been confirmed as of yet for a release of this record nor has any title been given.
