The Rolling Stones - "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"
Growing up in a large family I have learned to be open to new ideas and different influences. Musically, I have evolved quite a bit. I am always willing to try anything twice. Various people had a musical impact on me as a child. I learned to respect some good 80's music from my Uncle Joey and my brother Aaron. I listened to "real Hip-Hop" because of my cousin Ben, my friend JQ, and my brother again. The list goes on and on with the different facets of music and people who introduced me to them. For Classic Rock though, I have feel I became accustomed to it because of my Dad, my Uncle Tony, the Westrick boys, Spanky and many others in the heart of Lakeside. (For those of you unfamiliar with Lakeside, just know that it is one of the most "hick" areas of San Diego where Spanky and I live. Classic Rock continues to thrive there to this very day.)

I also grew up a child of the 80's watching amazing action flicks from "The Governator." Schwarzenegger was, in a sense, another father figure for me. Thank God he worked on so many amazing movies like "Raw Deal." So sit back and enjoy Arnold bucking the "status quo."

"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and produced by Andrew Loog Oldham. It was said that Keith Richards woke up in the middle of the night and the guitar riffs and chorus just came to him. The song references politics and sexual intercourse. The hit single was listed as #2 in the 2004 Rolling Stone Magazine's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time." For me, this action sequence is what makes it one of the greatest songs of all time.
