H is for The Heavy



I am listening to “How You Like Me Now” while typing this.  The Heavy is a British band, a fact that stunned me.  I pictured them hailing from the southern United States, maybe Louisiana. Apparently the tune has been sampled in the media numerous times. Somehow I missed out hearing the funk rock tune until more than six years after its 2010 release.


WARNING: this might not be safe for work. There is some nudity, though it’s cartoonish (!). I had a blast watching this one.




For a phony music group, I’d like to introduce you to Heartfelt.  Two female cousins started a tribute band honoring sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart.  They have been playing small venues nearly as long as their heroines.

  1. Was not sure I liked "do you like me now" when it first came out but it sort of plays on you. Like your other band pick also.

  2. I've heard both songs multiple times. Initially I didn't like the song by Heart, but it kind of grew on me because it was sandwiched between two songs I liked on the mix tape. Did some other band also perform How you like me now? Or maybe I heard a version of it in a movie!. Hugs Darla!

    1. That's interesting, Vidya. I'm always fascinated by how repetition can make a song grow on us. That's a good question about "How You Like Me Now". I honestly don't know.

  3. I have always loved Heart. I just heard The Heavy recently. It was in my recommended on YouTube. They've got a great sound. Great H day!

  5. I love reading about your fantasy bands, and how you get ideas for them. As much as I like hearing about what music you like, seeing this window into your creative process is so much fun. I hope one day to read stories featuring some, or all, of these bands you've created!

    1. Thank you, my dear! You are the friend I credit with this journey. I can't express thanks enough for introduction to the Writer Zen Garden, blogging, National Writing Month, and such good company, especially when my writing lacked even the talent I profess today. Bless you.

  6. Yeah, I've heard this one, too. Mostly in ads, I think.

    1. Thanks for weighing in, Liz, especially when I know music isn't your big thing. How horrible that it's in ads. I don't begrudge the artists the revenue, but I'm glad to avoid advertising thanks to my partner's self built digital video recorder. Gotta love computer geeks!

  7. I always liked Heart. A clerk at the Circle K once asked if I was so and so. I didn't know who he meant but looked her up. He thought I was the lead singer of the Pretenders. Even now, I've forgotten her name. That was about 8 years ago, and I was thinner.

  8. Oh, neat! I knew the name immediately but looked up the spelling. She is Chrissie Hynde. I would have never spelled her name right in a million years on my own. ~grin~ My first love used to tell me I reminded him of Stevie Nicks (a very long time ago). Be well!
