New fave song

I became a mother late last year. Well, it was actually on December 20, 2006 (which seems weird, because it means my 1 year old has lived in three years ... hmm). But this post isn't about motherhood. It's about music. I'm getting to that. But here's my point: 2007 for me was this crazy whirlwind of all-things-baby, and while I like to think I stayed up on things (trends, style, news, celebrity gossip), some things slipped by. Music was one of them.

I'm pretty certain that I'm the last person on the universe to discover Brandi Carlile's song "The Story." I heard it a few weeks ago on the radio and then again the other day. And I'm now, officially, obsessed with it. Obsessed! I have no idea if all the other songs on the record stink, but I want to buy it and put this song on repeat.

This song obsession made me think of others over the years. Here, join me for an embarrassing walk down memory lane:

Third grade: Bon Jovi, "You Give Love a Bad Name" (is that the name of it?)
Sixth grade: Bryan Adams, "Everything I Do"
Eighth grade: Nirvana, "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
10th grade: Smashing Pumpkins, "Today"
2 weeks ago: The CVS Pharmacy Theme Song "Ordinary Miracle."

Don't laugh.

Lol, okay, I promise I laugh only because I've been obsessed with pretty much all the same songs, at roughly the same ages too. Well, not Nirvana. I pretended to love them for awhile because everyone else did, but I was really never a grunge chick ;) Throw a little KT Tunstell, Tina Turner, and even *cringe* Celine Dion into the mix and you've got my list of music obsessions over the years.
