There are a couple of different songs I listen to when I get angry; it really depends on what I'm angry about. But this song is a song that I will put on whenever I'm angry. It came out at a time when I was just really frustrated by things going on in my life and listening to this was the only way I could really channel my anger. This song was game changing for the Dixie Chicks as well. It was their first single after their whole President Bush scandal. I think it's not even just about being angry, but about being frustrated and letting people know that you won't change who you are for anyone.

I have quite a few favorite albums obviously since I'm such a music fan but I was listening to "Fly" by the Dixie Chicks over the weekend and remembered why it was always one of my favorite albums to listen to. There are so many awesome songs on the album and so many of them are awesome but I think this song is definitely one of the ones I enjoy the most. This song is hilarious even though it deals with serious subjects like domestic violence and murder. I love singing it at the top of my lungs.

When I saw this subject, I knew exactly which song I was going to pick. Yes, it's another McFly song but they're one of the few artists I love that you don't hear on the radio. They haven't come to the United States yet but I know with their new album 'Above the Noise' it is totally possible. This new album has a dance element that's really fresh and modern but keeps to their band sound with the killer guitar and instrumentation. This was the lead single off the album and I think it would fit in so perfectly with the stuff on the radio right now.

Well, there are only a handful of songs that you hear a lot on the radio now and that's the main reason I don't listen to it lol. But this song is actually really quite good. I was just talking about it with a co-worker the other day and explaining why I thought it was such a big hit. Lady Gaga really hit the music scene at the right time. She came and gave a voice to a group of people who didn't think they had a voice. Everyone is weird and crazy and off-beat sometimes but she's made it okay to be a little bit weird in popular culture. And this song has been smashing the radio and charts lately.

This hasn't happened to me for a long time, mainly because I stopped listening to the radio. Since the radio plays the same 25-ish songs all the time it's easy to experience burnout. Of course there are songs I myself have played over and over again but when you choose to listen to a song a lot you can step away from it for awhile if you start to tire of it. There's really only one song that I can remember drove me crazy after a while. It's funny because if you know me, you know that I love Justin Timberlake, but this song was everywhere! And then my mom started liking it and that was the end of it for me.
