(Music Review): My Life Would Suck Without You

I thought that along with my blog posts about Salem State, I'd try and enlighten people's lives with what I do best; giving my opinion. Music & movies are two of my absolute favorite things and I don't know what I'd do without them. As of right now I'm planning on focusing most of my energy on music. I feel that a lot of people around me always stick to one, genre of music. Personally, I listen to everything. And when I say everything, I mean everything. My friend Joelle and I were actually just talking and she said she was watching TV and someone said something along the lines of, "Never question the songs that are on someone's iPod..." She then continued to say, "If a therapist ever went through your iPod, they wouldn't know what to make of it." (Thank you Joelle). I used to be all about the mainstream/radio and never opened my eyes to how many different kinds of music there actually are. My mind has never/will never be a one track mind, and I enjoy more than anything in the world to discover new things. That's when I started bringing into my mix hardcore, underground rap, techno, country, ect ect. You name it, I bet I have it.

The purpose of these weekly blogs is to hopefully introduce everyone to something a little different. Maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. As always, if you don't like it I'd love to hear why and if you do the same thing.

I thought I would start out simple this week with Kelly Clarkson (I don't want to scare everyone off too quickly). Now if you haven't heard of Kelly Clarkson, you seriously live under a rock. Possibly the most talented artist to ever come from American Idol in its many seasons (with Carrie Underwood right at her heels, as well as Chris Daughtry eventhough he wasn't crowned "American Idol"). After waiting about two years I thought she would never come out with anything new. The last I heard about her she was having problems agreeing with her producers & managers about her song choices to put on her record. They were trying to make her do something she didn't want to, and she wouldn't stand for it (GO KELLY WOO!). But, to my extreme happiness, I went on iTunes about a week ago and what do you know, Kelly Clarkson has a new single. If this song is any preview of what the whole album is going to be, I will be first in line to grab it. I'm assuming I will have to fight for that first spot since it has made the biggest jump on the Billboard Hot 100 from #97 to #1. (This is the second time she has done this. Her first single "A Moment Like This" moved from #51 to #1.) Reference:

Hope you enjoy :]
