I LIKE SONGS!!
Last night on the way to band practice, I was listening to the local "alternative" station, which I never do because they're perpetually stuck in 1995 and every other song they play is Bush or Alice in Chains. Anyway, they played the new single from Pearl Jam. Its called "The Fixer," and it is FANTASTIC. They're one of those bands that never seems to pass their prime and just keep putting out one great record after another. Certainly, some are better than others, but I've never heard a Pearl Jam record and said, "What do they think they're doing?" I'm really looking forward to this record.
Another song I've been hearing a lot is Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me." Every once in a while, there will be a song on the top 40 that is so good it makes you want to murder things, i.e. Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've been Gone," and Beyonce's "Crazy In Love." I think this Taylor Swift song makes the cut. Granted, I'm not a 14 year old girl, so its not the most relatable thing for me, but who can deny that melody?
