Songs of My Life – January 2011

Here are the songs for January…the first month of the New Year!
-California Love by 2 Pac
    I woke up in 2011 singing this song. Don’t ask. I didn’t even own until 1.01.11.
-Electric Avenue by Eddy Grant
    Thank you Suzanne, Shorty, & Mike K. Thank you mimosas on New Years Day Day!
-Like New Year’s Day by Matthew Ryan & Hammock
    A – I love pretty much anything Matthew Ryan does. B – It was released on New Years Day. C – Winner!
-Zerstoren by Rammstein
    This song when translated means destroy. It is the perfect song to get your work out on or to get rid of that hostile energy inside of you.
-End Transmission by A.F.I.
    This song popped my up on iPod and I can’t get over why it was never a radio hit.  As the lyrics say, “This night has only just begun. If there’s discretion that you’ve not abandoned. Now’s the time.”
-Raise Your Glass by Pink
    The lyrics are just great & the video is even greater! Favorite lyrics “ So raise your glass if you’re all wrong in all the right ways . All my underdogs, we will never be, never be anything but loud & nitty gritty dirty little freaks.”
-My Body by Young the Giant
    It’s the 1st alternative song of the new year that I just connected with & it’s catchy.
-Semi-Automatic by The Boxer Rebellion
    This song was used in an episode of Human Target. Chance is rushing to Ilsa’s aide as she fights for her life. It was just a perfect fit for the sequence.
-Diamond Eyes by Shinedown
    Just a good rock song.
-Don’t Take My Mind on a Trip by Boy George
    Thanks to Darrin and HOTlanta. I visited, I watched the NY Rangers, I danced, I dj’d and remembered Boy George. This is classic Boy if you like Boy George.
-Never Gonna Come Back Down by BT
    Also, an Atlanta shout out…3:30 am singing this song, was a blast.
-That Song by Big Wreck
    4 am Atlanta, singing this song at the top of my lungs into my cell phone. “I love that song. So when you go there. Would you hear me scream at the top of my lungs.”
-Not Strong Enough by Apocalyptica featuring Brent Smith of Shinedown
    With the haunting cellos and Brent’s voice, the song is perfect for those that feel like they can never get away.
