Bush - "Glycerine"

For some reason this song has been in my head lately. Not surprising, but still a little random.

This song is a Anyone who knows me (or I should say, anyone who knew me when I was 13) knows about my Bush days. Wow. Saying I was obsessed was a bit of an understatement. I was in love. I was a bit fanatical. It was fun and it was great.

It was this song that introduced me to the love of my life, Gavin Rossdale, and the band Bush. I heard it for the first time when I saw the video on MTV (back when they actually played videos) and that was it for me. For me, any song from Sixteen Stone will forever remain classic to me. In my humble opinion, Sixteen Stone is one of the greatest albums of all time. (But I might be a little bias).

Watch the video.
Watch my favorite performance I'll never forget the first time I saw this either (he is gorgeous!)
About the band.

There's nothing like a sunny summer Friday to make me feel nastalgic.
(And in case you were wondering - yes, I went to their concert, and yes, I did cry)

Kanye West - "Heartless"

Great artist. Great song.

Did anyone hear Kris Allen's version of this song on American Idol this week? I was BLOWN.A.WAY. I absolutely loved it. I have been a fan of Kris Allen's all season and hoped that he would make it all the way but knew his chances were slim. But what a move on his part. Pick a song completely unexpected and completely rock it. Great song. Great artist. Way to go Kris!
