WaveRunner: Sucker For Pain, Suicide Squad OST

This violent tag-team collaboration that yes, I sang slightly wrong in that intro, is like a drug being fed to my vein through a needle.

'Sucker For Pain' from the Suicide Squad OST - Out Now
From the simple electric guitar riff that accompanies Imagine Dragons' pained intro, the hypnotic offering is a dangerous invitation; and I don't know about you, but I succumb to their entreaty. That's even before Ty Dolla $ign's loyal soldier lyrics pay homage to the home team, pledging allegiance. Newcomer Logic's protestations are a little more raw, and the gang imagery comes a little more to the forefront. A rugged follow up to the duplicitous, mellow opening, by Lil Wayne's entry, we've descended from regimented ruckus, to gang warfare, to all-out destructive, maniacal, lunacy - even if the self is included in the casualties. Wiz Khalifa delivers a chilling end to the hip hop line up with a level-headed, emotionless threat to any witnesses. When X Ambassadors finally wrap up with their sorrowful lament, even though the claim is that they are suffering; somehow, you feel that it is you, as the victim, who will be left doing the begging.

Here's the petrifying promise from the gang above, for your take on my breakdown...

'Sucker 4 Pain' is available from all independent retailers now.

That's it for this week's music offerings, folx! Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it all, but even if you didn't I'd like to hear your comments on YOUR stage below, all the same!

Until the next...
