30 Day Music Challenge - Days 15-18

Wow - this is the worst I've been all month - four days!  Gracious!  I did a lot of playing in the yard over the weekend, and have been very busy at work this past week or so.  I have a bunch of things that I want to blog about, too, so stay tuned for some more interesting updates!

Day 15 - A song that describes you:  This is going to sound so bad, but sometimes I think that Over My Head (Cable Car) by The Fray is my personal theme song.  I often feel like everyone around me really does know that I'm in over my head - this applies at work, with owning a house, or pretty much anything else I'm trying to do.  I often feel like I'm still a little kid that snuck in to sit at the grown-ups table, and now I have no idea what everyone is talking about or what's actually going on around me.  The runner up/tie score = Fighter by Cristina Aguilera.  I'm not going into why again, but here's the link to my story.  It's a super-long and sort of depressing post, so don't say I didn't warn you.

Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate:  Argh.  I don't like having to post about things that I "hate."  This is SO HARD for me to pick.  The closest I can get, off the top of my head right now, is maybe Smooth, by Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas.  I really loved it when it was first out, and to a certain extent, I'm starting to like it again now, but it was just SO over played - but I still don't hate it, really.  Even stuff I loved when I was a kid - Milli Vanilli, and Vanilla Ice, for example - I still really get a kick out of listening to, and I can't say I hate it.

Day 17 - A song that you hear often on the radio:  I don't listen to the radio all that much anymore, but when I do, I feel like I've been hearing Alive by Pearl Jam a lot lately.  Weird, right?  That song is so old.  I recently erased 92.3, PROFM, from my presets in the car (that's the local top-40, pop station, for all of you non-local readers), and that was one of the best decisions I've made so far this year.  OMG, it's so liberating to not have that station set anymore!  I replaced it with 92.9, which is a Cape Cod station that seems to play a lot of 90s alternative rock-type stuff, and I think that's why I've been hearing PJ and RHCP on the radio so much lately.

Day 18 - A song that you wish you heard on the radio: ANYTHING by Bushwalla!  I love the man and his music so, so much, and he gets no love.  Please, please, dear readers, do yourself a favor and check him out!  If I have to pick one song for this challenge, I guess it would be Gangsta.  BW has a new album due out next month, and if you're on the West Coast - he's doing house shows (yes, he plays in your living room!) this summer, and his album release shows are coming up in LA and SD on 6/8 and 6/3.  A close second for this one = anything by Citizen CopeCheck him out, too.  And if I have to pick a song, I guess I gotta go with Son's Gonna Rise.  Cope is touring with O.A.R. this summer, so if you have a chance, go check him out!
