Quotation of the day: J.R.R. Tolkein -- In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.
OK, today's post will be about songs. Individual songs that rocked my world this year, and there were many.
I loved, in no particular order:
- "Unkind' By Sloan
- "Roads Ahead" by Big Sugar
- "Cowboy Song" by Seether
- "I Don't Know" by The Sheepdogs
- "Whistle Blower" by The Arkells
- "These Days" by Foo Fighters
Torn between two possibles, and i'm having an attack of the vapours, trying to choose.
OK, well, i think that, without question, the most entertaining song of the year was "Tonight" by Seether and you can view the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCzdecygpmg&ob=av2e
But i think that the most important song of 2011 was Rise Against's "Make It Stop (September's Children)" and it's here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP4clbHc4Xg&ob=av2e
It's (of all things) a protest song. It's also a very angry song. It deals with the subject of high school bullying, and as i have a very dear friend whose son was the subject of some torment by his classmates recently, i know how shattering this can be.
So Rise Against gets the nod.
