Women looking for THE ONE need to apply the Man Anthem Test.


The notion of one Man Anthem, and only one, goes against the grain on most sites.

The Good Men Project listed ten, as in top ten Man Anthems, with Queen’s We Are The Champions at #1.

While I love the campy idea of Freddy Mercury singing a Man Anthem, this isn’t it.

Gentlemen’s Quarterly gave the idea a shot and missed. Fifty times.

Buzzfeed ought to nail it? Their lady author swung a different hammer. Now she’s icing her hold steady hand.

No, dear readers, a man anthem, the one true expression of man anthem-ness, isn’t a list and it’s not about men, boys, or testosterone.

It’s about commitment between two people searching for the same thing, and it’s not feeling each other up.

I’ve done the research, the results are in, and I can report there’s only one way to find the man anthem, THE man anthem.

It starts on twitter with:

“This song is my life.”

“This song is everybody’s life.”

“You don’t get it. This song is my life. My exact life.”

“It’s a stage, one of the Stages of Bruce. His songs are life.”

“This one is my life. That’s all.”

Stage Of Bruce Man Anthem Test

Well it’s Saturday night
You’re all dressed up in blue
I been watching you awhile
Maybe you been watching me too
So somebody ran out
Left somebody’s heart in a mess
Well if you’re looking for love
Honey I’m tougher than the rest

Take another look at the Hopper up top.

A Real Good Look.

Does she look happy? Would you on the best day of your life make her any happier?

Ladies, if this has ever been you on a day of lounging around naked and looking out windows hunched in a plush chair, could anyone change your mood?

Keep looking for clues.

Some girls they want a handsome Dan
Or some good-lookin’ Joe, on their arm
Some girls like a sweet-talkin’ Romeo
Well ’round here baby
I learned you get what you can get
So if you’re rough enough for love
Honey I’m tougher than the rest

Man Anthem, pt 2

From baby boomers to millennials and the next biggest human wave in history, one man anthem is enough.

If you need more than one, you’ve got problems that don’t start or end with an anthem.

So pick one.

The road is dark
And it’s a thin thin line
But I want you to know I’ll walk it for you any time
Maybe your other boyfriends
Couldn’t pass the test
Well if you’re rough and ready for love
Honey I’m tougher than the rest

Choose that man, that woman, choose the person that opens a world of feelings and emotions you only read about, or saw on video.

Life is drama, life is dramatic, and all things in between. Knowing this doesn’t make you a drama queen, just more tolerant of others who might be drama queens.

Embrace the conflict, the love, the hurt, the joy, and stay on the right side of your thin, thin, line.

Well it ain’t no secret
I’ve been around a time or two
Well I don’t know baby maybe you’ve been around too
Well there’s another dance
All you gotta do is say yes
And if you’re rough and ready for love
Honey I’m tougher than the rest
If you’re rough enough for love
Baby I’m tougher than the rest

Saving the Man Anthem

Believing in your partner, that legally bound mate in good standing, is more than making believe.

Your make believe.

If somebody’s heart’s in a mess, it’s probably you. People with messy hearts find each other.

When you find someone you don’t want to make more of a mess, this is your Man Anthem, your Woman Anthem just so can check if your guy as one anthem.

If you keep making bigger messes, you’ll find something like this at the end of the day.

No one wants that.
