Music: Strong Women and Needy Men

So, I'm driving to work on Tuesday. In those twelve minutes, I hear two songs, a traffic report, and the weather. The traffic and weather were CRAZY interesting, but I won't get you too excited first thing in the morning. It was the music I wanted to talk about, a pattern in music, actually, I've noticed a lot lately.

Strong woman who don't need a man *snap, snap, snap,* especially that insensitive jerkface that dumped them.


Pining men who'll give anything, ANYthing, to win back the strong and sexy girl of their dreams.

Can't we set any of these people up? :) I think a lot of songwriters could be super happy if they, you know, listened to each other.

Personally, I like the arrogant men with moves like Jagger. Umm, yeah, back to the bad boy thing, huh? Yep!

What are you listening to right now? Bonus points if it's My Chemical Romance (LOVE)!

Also, head over to The Rejectionist's blog and bid on an arc of Tahereh Mafi's SHATTER ME. Great, great cause!!!!!

I do love MCR but mostly I've been listening to a lot of acoustic folk music.

The last time I listened to the radio, I had my seven year old niece in the car. She asked me to turn up the volume for one particular song so I did and as I listened to the lyrics, I was mortified by the anti-feminist message and promptly turned off the radio. I put a CD in after that.
