Welcome to another edition of Songs of the week. If you are new, welcome! I love music and love introducing people to different styles of music. Each week I pick songs that I’m currently enjoying. They could be new tunes, throwback, or something that’s been around for a while. It’s my chance to share my love of music with the interweb.
Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness– Fire Escape:
Finally, some new music from Andrew McMahon and this song does not disappoint for me. This song isn’t my favorite song by him but I’m excited to know there is a new album on the way, and I can’t wait to hear it!
Gavin DeGraw- Making Love With The Radio On:
I love Gavin, and this song is great. I don’t think I would make love with this song on, but it’s a catchy light-hearted song which I love!
Celine Dion- Recovering:
I am a closet Celine fan, and it’s been forever since she’s released music. I can only assume this song is about her husband who passed away earlier this year. There is so much emotion in this song, and it shows how talented Celine is.
Zack De La Rocha- Digging for Windows:
I love Rage Against The Machine and love what Zack De La Rocha is about which is why I think this song automatically appeals to me. The song is intriguing but by no means is it a favorite. The more I listen to it, the more it grows on me. I’m interested to see what a new album from him will sound like, and I hope it has some of the political aspects he tends to sing about.
The Black Eyed Peas- #WHERESTHELOVE:
The Black Eyed Peas remixed their song Where is the love and while I prefer the original song this version is very powerful with the images and message of the song.
In honor of the 15th anniversary of September 11th, I thought it would be appropriate to throwback one of my favorite and most influential songs about that horrific day.
One of my favorite Pop-Punk cd’s is Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue” and the best song on the album is “Believe” which is dedicated to those who lost their lives on September 11th. The song is powerful, nd the images from the video bring back so many vivid memories from that awful day. Even after 15 years the images of the towers and the people covered in ashes still brings tears to my eyes. I was 18 years old but I will never forget the events of the day.
