Music Monday 40

Linkin Park writes songs that have deeply personal lyrics and melodies that mirror the feelings conveyed. I think the emotional honesty behind their songs is the reason they are so successful. While others may remember this band as edgy nu-metal from middle school, I celebrate them as the empathetic poet-musicians they are. This week’s song contains a powerful idea: that the truest way to know yourself is to accomplish a goal on your own.

Remember when the internet was a much smaller place? This was one of my very first "memes" -- if you can call Flash animation fads that. Almost 20 years later, I'd say the hit single of Group X's debut album still holds up!

Happy July! Al Bairre released just one EP and a handful of singles before disbanding, but I love them anyway. The band members have great character (just watch their other music videos) and their songs are catchy and energetic.
