Today’s post comes from Brendan Hangauer, singer/songwriter for Fourth Of July, whose terrific sophomore LP “Before Our Hearts Explode!” came out this Fall.

i had three different songs that really stuck with me this year:

1. titus andronicus“a more perfect union”

NEW JERSEY+THE BOSS+RANCID+BEING YOUNG AND PISSED OFF IN THE YEAR 2010= TITUS ANDRONICUS i like it!

my favorite lyrics:

“Because where I’m going to now, no one can ever hurt me
Where the well of human hatred is shallow and dry
No, I never wanted to change the world, but I’m looking for a new New Jersey
Because tramps like us, baby, we were born to die”

2. gorillaz“to binge” (mp3)

i really wanted to hate this band and for the most part i do.  the whole cartoon thing just seems totally lame to me.  anyways..my sister and nephew got into this album when it came out.  they would always make me listen to it in the car driving around in the summer.  finally this song came on and i have to admit: there is no better song in the whole wide world to have playing while you drive around in the summer time!!  after i heard this song it was the only thing i would listen to in her car.  we would turn the volume up as loud as we could and drive around downtown lawrence with the windows down singing along…..with no shame.

3. bruce springsteen – the promise

this song is a b-side on the reissue of darkness on the edge of town.  this song and video just kick ass.

my favorite lyrics:

“Well now I built that Challenger by myself
But I needed money and so I sold it
I lived a secret I should’a kept to myself
But I got drunk one night and I told it”
