23min of Ska : X-Cutioner’s Song

23skaXCUTIONERThis sure is a fun batch of songs! The first several songs are pretty straight forward in how they relate to the over all comic’s story. Right? Well, I think so! The last two… maybe not so much. “Walking Away” is referring Prof. X being able to walk, if even a short time (Don’t worry Charles, this will be happening so often it’s like you’re barely even in a wheelchair.) And “No Moaning at the Bar” was inspired by Beast and Angel fixing up Harry’s Hideaway at the end of the story line. Got it? Ok! Now listen and read comics!

23min of Ska : God Loves, Man Kills

23skaGODLOVESWell… I tried my damnedest to stick to the topic at hand, but it got a little too depressing. Also, this one got pretty reggae-y, which is usually not my style, but everything fit so well! I guess a few more songs about unity could’ve been in order, but I’ve played so many of them before. I feel bad that I’d also already used the Smoke Like a Fish song “God Loves, Man Kills” on an episode last Summer! Also of note, the final song on here is by the Uninvited, they’re not a ska band at all, but have played a few ska tracks here and there, this track is obviously one of them.

16:45 – the Expanders – Man Should Not Hold Back (Old Time Something Come Back Again ’12)
20:02 – the Uninvited – What God Said (Uninvited ’98)
