No Doubt - "The Climb"

I was just reminded of this song from the available Rock Band downloads.

Tragic Kingdom is easily one of the best albums ever and was frequently found in my CD player or car through my middle school/high school years. One of the few I can listen to start to finish. Still. The No Doubt, Tragic Kingdom tour was the first concert I went to back when I was 13. It was awesome. I have wanted to be Gwen ever since. Especially when she married Gavin Rossdale. So dreamy.

The song still rocks my world.
Great music. Great lyrics. Great message.

There is something very appealing to me about getting in the car, popping this baby in, and just driving. These songs speak to a part of my soul that doesn't get much recognition these days. I am a grown up now after all.

Some of these songs are from my past; some are more recent; all would have served as much needed therapy for my overactive teenage heart.

I made this mix for a friend of mine, but the's for me too.
Anyone want a copy?

Heart - "Alone"

This song is epic.
It is classic.
It's timeless.
It's a favorite.

I made a mix for a friend of mine this week and couldn't help but include it. Even though the song is probably twice her age. At least.

This is an appropriate pick in honor of Season 10 of American Idol. Which, by the way, may end up being my favorite season. I am loving the new judges. I have a crush on Steve Tyler. "Alone" has been featured a number of times on Idol. My absolute favorite was by Carrie Underwood. That was the night Simon predicted she would win. And she did.

Watch her performance.
Another favorite performance on Idol. Why she didn't do better in the competition? I still don't know.

Ashlee Simpson - "L.O.V.E."

For Valentine's week, my pick is L.O.V.E.
Not at all a love song, but just fun.

And I'm coming out of the closet...
I'm an Ashlee Simpson fan.
