Song: Where The River Goes
Artist: Zac Brown
Album: [Footloose] [2011]
Lyrics: http://www.metrolyrics.com/where-the-river-goes-lyrics-zac-brown-band.html

My Thoughts On The Song: I don’t know if any of y’all saw the remake of this movie (Footloose) with Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald but it was so freaking good and the soundtrack made it even better. This song by Zac Brown (I guess he did this one without the rest of his band..) is part of the soundtrack and is so cool sounding. Love his voice on this one. Check out the rest of the soundtrack too from the remake! Great stuff.

Song: Give Me Novacaine 
Artist: Green Day
Album: [American Idiot] [2004]
Lyrics: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/coldplay/tilkingdomcome.html

My Thoughts On The Song: Somewhat old school Green Day. My sister is a huge Broadway freak and she was listening to the American Idiot musical CD (it’s a musical that incorporates Green Day’s music if you didn’t know) and the cast version of this song came on and I liked it..so I thought I’d check out the original since I hadn’t heard it. Good song.

It’s awesome.

Artist: Kelly Clarkson 

Album: [Stronger] [2011]
Lyrics: http://www.metrolyrics.com/the-war-is-over-lyrics-kelly-clarkson.html

My Thoughts On The Song: This is my absolute favorite song right now. I’ve probably already mentioned that Kelly is my favorite singer of all time. I think she is absolutely amazing. Her new album came out like a week ago and it is so freaking good. This song is such a powerful song and I just instantly connected to it. Every time I listen to it I get chills and want to cry, haha. It is so damn good. It’s set in the context of a relationship, but it can be applied to basically any kind of battle you’ve been fighting. Her vocals are (as always) incredible and it’s absolutely worth a listen..as is the entire album. She is quite honestly one of the greatest singers of our time.

I like the instrumental at the beginning of each of the verses. I don’t know why, it’s just cool sounding. I like how it transitions from the verses to the choruses. It’s just a very well done song, and I’ve heard a few other songs by them, and I didn’t realize they’ve been around for a while. Great song.

Song: Konstantine
Artist: Something Corporate
Album: Not officially on an album as far as I could tell.
Lyrics: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/somethingcorporate/konstantine.html
My Thoughts On The Song: One of my favorite songs of all time. It’s really long..over nine minutes, but it’s amazing. First heard it from one of my friends back in high school, but I kind of forgot about it until the other night I was loading songs onto my computer from old mixes my friend and I would make for each other for birthdays. Anyway, it’s an amazing song and even though it’s super long, you have to sit through the whole thing. I love the piano that’s playing throughout and the combination of that with the vocals and it’s definitely worth a listen.

My Thoughts On The Song: A cool song by Coldplay.. I like the vibe of it and for some reason it reminds me of like, the country side. Haha. I don’t know. It’s a good song though. I like the lyrics and Chris Martin’s voice. =]

Song: Fool That I Am (live at Soho)
Artist: Adele
Album: [Hometown Glory - Single] [2008] 
Lyrics: http://artists.letssingit.com/adele-lyrics-fool-that-i-am-mf7m75v
My Thoughts On The Song: I think this is a cover of an Etta James song that Adele had as a B-side to Hometown Glory. Regardless of the fact that Rolling In The Deep is probably one of the most overplayed songs on the radio at the moment, Adele is one of my favorite current artists. I think she’s so amazingly talented. I love her. This performance came on my Pandora last night and I literally had chills at some points. You can get this performance on ITunes.
