Jimmy Eat World - "If You Don't, Don't"
One of my favorite songs off of Bleed American. I honestly can't say enough good things about this band, they're so good. I would be happy if Jimmy Eat World won the March Mayhem thing.
New Found Glory - "Listen To Your Friends"
Pretty solid song off of a solid album. I don't really like it as much of Sticks and Stones or Coming Home, but it's solid. The song itself is good. I remember buying it from Amazon MP3 a while back, and listening to it over and over and over. I probably burned myself out on it.
Much The Same - "Living a Lie"
Short, awesome song. Not much to say other than it's really high energy.
The Early November - "My Lack of Skill"
I love Ace Enders. I wasn't a huge fan of TMTMATP, but this song isn't bad.
Ace Enders And A Million Different People - "Bring Back Love (Year 2020)"
Awesome song with an awesome message. Releasing this album for free on Fuse.tv was awesome, and I probably would have passed on it had it not been free. I still love Ace Enders.
Bangarang! - "Frozen Over, First In Line"
Awesome pop-punk/hardcore band that most people haven't heard of. The song is really high energy, and just all around awesome. I highly, highly, highly recommend them, and their album is free for download I think.
Timeless! - "Interstate"
Another lesser known pop-punk/hardcore band that is awesome. They're from Massachusetts, so Four Year Strong comparisons are inevitable. I first got into them after seeing their music video for "Victory Dance" somewhere. It was an AMAZING video.
John Mayer - "Neon"
John Mayer is my hero. Every single thing he does is gold in my eyes. Inside Wants Out is my favorite thing he's ever released, and Neon is one of my favorite songs (along with "No Such Thing" and "Comfortable"). His voice is godly.
Lupe Fiasco - "American Terrorist"
In a genre that I have much distaste for, Lupe is a shining light. While most rappers are too busy with their hoes, money, and grills, Lupe keeps it real. The song is about the post 9/11 hysteria, and how Bush attacked Iraq for being different. It might be seen as anti-America on first listen, but after a few listens you'll see it's really about everyone joining together and ending racism and intolerance. Awesome song.
John Denver - "Calypso"
Oh my, John motherfucking Denver. This man is amazing. I first learned about him at my grandma's house who had him on the TV for some special or DVD or whatever (I don't know, but he was on TV). His voice is awesome, and I have a soft spot for folk tunes.
I'm surprised there's no Dashboard Confessional as I have over 100 songs from him/them on my iPod.
