Talk Dirty To Me by Poison - Perhaps it is the hidden desire in me to be a bad girl that makes me love this song...or maybe it is the fact that Poison really is freakin' awesome...I don't know and I don't care. All I know is that I love this song. It is actually pretty funny because as I was departing from the city this past weekend and it came on I found that I could not restraint myself. I was singing it as loud as I could, rocking as I drove and allowed my mind to wander far more than I should have considering that I wasn't driving in the most ideal weather. I just love the rocking way this song sings of what an obsession "talking" on the phone can be. Lyrically it is amazing, musically it is a bitchin rock song and it is sung by Bret who is just a few levels below Jon Bon Jovi on the hottie rocker chart. It truly is a must have for every hair band fan. The Best Line: "I call you on the telephone, I’m only hoping that you’re home so I can hear you when you say those words to me and whisper so softly...I gotta hear you."
Rock & Roll by Eric Hutchinson - So this song is my #2 favorite new song at the moment. Much like my favorite new song at the moment I heard while watching VH1 recovering from my surgery. This song is a bad song to listen to the day after you have your abdomen cut open because it is IMPOSSIBLE not to start grooving to this song. Thank goodness for pain meds because they allowed me to groove to this song in the painful days after. The rest of album is so so which is disappointing. Luckily the fine folks at iTunes allow me to buy single songs. That being said...I would have blown 14.99 or whatever ungodly price CDs sell for these days for this song. Best Line: "They can roll with the punches as long as they feel like their in control."
Nine In The Afternoon by Panic At The Disco - Kudos to Panic for surviving the sophomore curse. I would even venture so far to say this song off their 2nd album is better than all of those on their 1st. This song is another great tune for singing and dancing to. This song gives me memories of walking down on the street, damn near bursting with excitement, happier than words can describe. It makes me smile as I remember stopping at a stop light and receiving a sudden touch that sent shivers down my spine, made my heart flutter, stole my breath, and fueled a passion that I never knew that I could feel. So yeah...one could say that in spite of its peppy, happy go lucky tune...it is a song that brings a provokes a great deal of emotion in me. Best Line: "You could ’cause you can....so you do and we’re feeling so good."
Hey There Delilah by The Plain White Ts - I know that I have written about this song before and what I write tonight will probably differ from what I wrote in the past but that is what makes music great...its ability to change to fit your mood. I swear that this song is one of the greatest songs ever. As I reflect on things and the way that I have grown I often find myself whispering to myself "Oh its what you do to me." It can happen at a grocery store or an airport and I will suddenly stop and softly sing "Oh its what you do to me" and smile. The soft melody of this song makes it the perfect soundtrack for reflecting. No wonder it is the #2 played song on my iPod. Tonight I choose the following for the Best Line: "I'd walk to you if I had no other way."
