Favorite Songs.....

So, I have created a bunch of play lists on my youtube channel featuring some of my favorite tracks. I thought I would do some posts to talk about why these are favorites of mine.

I'm gonna start off with something a little bit different. Most of you know that country is my favorite genre and it's mostly what I listen to and sing. I do like a lot of of other stuff, to- like Metal (specifically Metallica). The first song of theirs I chose to put up and feature is "Until It Sleeps". The thing that gets me the most about this song are the lyrics- they're so honest and you can feel the pain and the anger in them, especially when combined with James' vocals.

So tear me open and put me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

This has to be one of my favorite parts of the whole song. I think that it really captures that emotion I was talking about and I think most people can relate to it at one point or another. Finally.... I gotta give some love to the video itself. I remember watching it and thinking "this is art"... the imagry was striking and really enhances the song; something that alot of other videos don't do.

So, there ya go.... why I chose to put "Until it Sleeps" in my playlist. What about you? Do you like it? Hate it? Comment below....
