1. ZZ Top
I'm not ashamed to admit that I have this song in my collection via the soundtrack to Armageddon. Yes, it was cheesy. Yes, it was actually quite ridiculous. But yes, it made me cry. I have a soft spot for natural disasters and other imminent threats to mankind in my books and movies, so this one was right up my alley. The accompanying soundtrack was full of great rock n' roll tunes, like this one:
2. Zac Brown Band
I have one ZBB track in my collection, compliments of the Starbuck's "Pick of the Week" cards that they give out. I had heard of this new country group, but that was it. Since then, I've grown fond of their song "Free", which segues nicely into lyrics from Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic." It's kind of neat. And like most country music, it reminds me of summer, which, on a cloudy, rainy day like this, I need. (Wow, over-comma alert!)
If you've made it this far, then you have a very sincere THANK YOU. Thanks for playing along with the A-Z Challenge, and commenting along even if you were sick of the challenge but felt like you just had to suggest a song or a band. I've been introduced to some great music already.
I'm not sure what comes next. I might take a few days off and regroup, but I'll be back soon. I have some writing posts percolating in my head and some book reviews I can't wait to share.
See you soon!
