Music Nostalgia – 5 Great Songs of ’01

This is my year bitches…well, my year of high school graduation!  Gives you a brief inside look at how old and immature I really am doesn’t it!  One thing that’s hard to define in these early years of 2000 in identity especially for musicians.  For example, in the years that are coming up notice how Christina and Brittany (I know you all know who they are) go from lollipop lickers to dirty S&M party girls!

Hanging By A Moment – Lifehouse

This is soft rock at it’s finest.  The boys from Lifehouse can play so well that only the hardcore freaks crying over pepperoni have a bad time with them.  You actually can’t really listen to Lifehouse unless you’re tired, overwhelmingly optimistic, or are trying to sleep.  Still, I like them for their wonderful lyrics and toned down rock.

Bootylicious – Destiny’s Child

Not only did the title of this song make it into the Webster’s Dictionary (God help me) but this group also introduced a soon to be other half of a present day power couple, Beyonce.  I gotta hand it to this group though.  They managed to get to the top of the charts in just a few short years just to separate and make Beyonce famous! But the fact that they used Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood riffs!

I’m Already There – Lonestar

Ah shit!  If there was a song that could make a death row inmate cry it would be this song!  Have you listened to it?  Did you cry?  If not, go back to mindlessly watching slasher movies and plotting your next child abduction you heartless son of a bitch!

Bodies – Drowning Pool

To this day this is a mosh pit song.  I wouldn’t be caught dead in a mosh pit when this song started!  Hell, I’m afraid to be in a car with my friends when this song comes on the radio…which it rarely does.

Forever May Not Be Long Enough – Live

A song for the Mummy Returns soundtrack.  I just love Live because they can pull off doing a song that was based in 1930’s Egypt and still make it sound so awesome!
