Hall of Fame by The Script with - my new favorite song, and strangely enough, a music vid not by fandom that brings something to the table in interpretation and meaning all on it's own. I expected something a lot more GLAMOUR SUPERSTAR whatever; I got something far, far better.

Special note: I dare you not to get tears in your eyes when she stops, closes her eyes, and touches the speaker so she can feel the rhythm with her body. Just. Awesome.

Its' also, in itself, a fantastic song, in the family of You Gotta Be by Des'ree where they just make you feel like you could save the world before breakfast. I am actually making a playlist for this; sometimes, you just need to hear a lot of songs about how you are awesome.

IF ANYONE VIDS THIS SONG, IN ANY FANDOM, EMAIL ME. I would love to see this one go into common use. Well, and some Des'ree wouldn't hurt either.

I am exhausted from life, hence music to sooth the savage beast. So listening to now.

Let Her Go by passEnger - this didn't work for me until third listen when I got hard hooked by the lyrics. Give it three listens and if you aren't singing along the refrain, I will be very surprised.

Will Someday Change by Our Lady Peace - this is a drink alone in the dark in the rain after your dog got run over kind of song. No, really. I love it, but keep in mind I have a playlist called "cut your wrists". I collect songs like this. Very low key, very gorgeous, and very melancholy.

Be Somebody by Thousand Foot Krutch - I'd almost set this in bookends to Hall of Fame; different genre, different style, relationship-oriented rather than life-oriented, but despite the feel of it at the beginning, this is actually pretty positive. Definitely writing music.

Give Your Heart a Break by Demi Lovato - if the radio hasn't brainwashed you yet, I'd love to know how you escaped. It's freakishly bouncy and lyric automemorization means some people may be singing along in their office or bouncing down along the cubicle to the beat. Not that I know anything about that.

Cumbersome by Seven Mary Three - I originally listened to this and would have sworn it was Collective Soul. It's not, but if you like them, this will really, really work for you.

Hard to Love by Lee Brice - to round this out, country genre, and so freaking addictive I was muttering the chorus in one listen. It's just like that.

Breathe by Angel and Airways - also responsible for the song for the HP Neville video of awesome. Honestly, first listen it was okay but nothing to write home about; second, it worked much better.
