My new most-favoritist song is "Hero" by Abandon. Sure it's sung by a Christian alternative rock band, but for those who aren't in the know about faith-based music, that basically means AMAZING. You won't find it on KIIS or KROQ or even on my teen-years-favorite, Power 106! (Yeee-ah boyz.) But you'd be surprised - there are tricklings of it in pop culture all over the place.
And I've provided a link of the band singing an acoustic version of "Hero" LIVE on Air1Radio:
See Abandon on Youtube HERE! (You're welcome!)
And you know, when it comes to my kids, I ask myself, "What kind of lyrics do I want circling around in their heads as they wait in the handball line at recess?" A song about birthday shots? No.
Which is funny - or sad (you decide) - because my kids and I really do listen to all kinds of music. And a couple years ago, Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" was at the top of our list.
But here's the thing, that song apparently has sunk into my nine-year-old's head - to the point where this very morning she asks me out-of-the-blue, "Mom, do you have that one song..."it's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now"...laying around here somewhere?"
"Um, well honey. Not sure. (But I really am sure. Number 5. Blue cd. Glove compartment.) But for now, how about we stick to songs about our hero like 'Hero.'"
"Okay mom!" (Kids these days.)
