Back in the Groove: Tenacious D – KONG

It’s been a while, mostly due to work and then laziness and then work, then more laziness and now here we are. A fresh week and a fresh take on life! I have no clue what I mean by that, but fuck it seemed like something people say in a situation like this when they want to get the shit kicked out of themselves. What am I babbling about?

ADAM! I had NEVER heard this Tenacious D song before. It was originally on the japanese version Pick of Destiny and appeared on the POD 7″. Super rare, this probably didn’t make the album because it doesn’t fit into the movie anywhere. There was no deleted scene with King Kong or even mention of the 8th wonder. Regardless it would have fit into the POD style of song more than the most recent album or the first. I’m hoping to do a dueling review of the new Tenacious D because Adam isn’t a fan at all and I am gushing over it. I think that the¬†dichotomy¬†(impressive sounding!) would be delicious (hungry sounding!).

Kooonnnng!
There is nothing on Earth that is nearly as strong,
As Kong!

Kooonnnng!
In the jungle he lives, that is where he belongs,
King Kong!

Kooonnnng!
Beat the drum, light the flames, sacrifice, bang the gong!
King Kong! (KONG!)
(KING!)

Kooonnnng!
Killing all in his path, save for that which he longs,
King Kooonnnng!

Kooonnnng!
There is nothing on Earth that is nearly as strong,
As Kong!

Kooonnnng!
In the jungle he lives, that is where he belongs,
King Kong!

Kooonnnng!
Beat the drum, light the flames, sacrifice, bang the gong!
Aah, King Kong!

Kong!
Killing all in his path, save for that which he longs,
King Kooonnnng!

(KONG! KING! KONG! KING! KONG! KING! KONG! KING! KONG! …KONG!)

  1. KOOOOOONG! That song’s pretty good. Definitely down to do a double review. Later this week I’ll have mine ready. Maybe if I listen a few more times by then I’ll have seen the light, but I don’t know…
