Song(s) of the Day(s)

Two examples of songs that managed to stand out to me despite 48 hours of a lot of listening to music.  One is an old friend, Better Off This Way, which now has five tallies in total.  Another is Fairweather Fan which I find to be a good song and one with an awesome story behind it.  Four Year Strong recorded the song as a dedication to their fans who have stuck with them since the beginning and made the song available for free download.  Always love to see musicians give back and show that the only thing important is the music.  I love when a song stands out to me like this one did.  I was walking around, a bit distracted by the things around me - the cars, street lights, people, etc.  When I get in that zone, I tend to sort of zone out the music blaring in my ears as it becomes background noise.  Only when an especially good song clicks with me does my brain get pulled back into the music and that's what Fairweather Fan did for me earlier.

33rd tally for A Day to Remember, 5th tally for Better Off This Way

Better Off This Way - A Day to Remember
When you fall, I'll be the only one who looks away. When you call, I'll be the first to tell you I can't stay.

3rd tally for Four Year Strong, 1st tally for Fairweather Fan

Fairweather Fan - Four Year Strong
Just give me one, one good reason to forgive you of your treason. You turned your back, you ran away at the first sign of light of a brand new day.
