So I kind of had to drop the “this week in music” since I have been neglecting my blog and haven’t posted ANYTHING in almost 2 weeks. Today is a major blog catch-up day, so be prepared. I have 3 weeks of The Bold and The Beautiful DVR’d, so I’m spending a nice relaxing morning catching up on blogging and soaps.
LAST week, I listened to Deana Carter’s “Did I Shave My Legs For This?”. It’s probably been at least 10 years since I listened to this CD, so while it was a nice little blast from the past, I just couldn’t get into it. I love all kinds of music, but I like them all at different times. By pulling this CD off the shelf, I felt like a was forcing a country mood and it just didn’t take.
Regardless, I did get into this one:
THIS week, I switched gears a bit and went for something a little heavier, Linkin Park’s Minutes to Midnight.
This is one of the few CDs I own that I like just about every song. Or at least there aren’t any songs I need to breeze through because they’re annoying. I love how some of the songs are truly hard rock, while some are more towards the alernative end of the spectrum. A great mix of tempos.
And while the song “Bleed It Out” is the one that stays in my head, I couldn’t help but to pick the song “Valentine’s Day” for my chosen snippet of the week. A depressing take on a day supposedly filled with love, but I like it anyway.
