Summer Music

I was tagged by Jess, my BFF over at to do this. Most of my 2008 summer music came from TV instead of the radio, as I faithfully watch one of my all time favorite shows "So You Think You Can Dance" herein referred to as SYTYCD. The songs they pick for Hip Hop ROCK! So, if it was used on SYTYCD, I listed the Youtube video address...sorry I haven't figured out how to embed is my top 7

- "The Garden" by Mirah
I first heard this song on SYTYCD and it's currently my favorite. Maybe because the dancers made it SO frickin' hot.
- "I kissed a girl and I liked it" by Katey Perry
Because I have and I can relate. I was somewhat offended by this song when I first saw/heard it on late night with Jay Leno, but after listening to it a few times realized what a hypocrite I was being.
-"No Air" by Jordan Sparks/Chris Brown
Or is it Ayer? I thought this song was lame until used on SYTYCD. Twitch is awesome, but Joshua won. Rightfully so. America got it right.
- "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis
Again, didn't love the song until SYTYCD made an awesome visual for me. My 10 year old son would sing along in the car and always replace "Love" with "Blood". At least it rhymed. And to a ten year old boy, makes much more sense.
!WARNING! The following songs are catchy and WILL stick in your head for days. These are some of my faves just because they are fun to sing along with and gyrate to while driving. So if you see me cruising in my convertible looking like I'm having an epileptic fit, don't call 911 just yet. Listen for the loud music first. It's how I roll...
- "Shake it" by Metro Station
- "Damaged" by Danita Kane
- "American Boy" by Estelle featuring Kanye West
Honorable mentions:
- "In the Ayer" by Florida featuring
Because damn rhymes with jam, and I never knew there were so many words that rhymed with Ayer
- "Corona & Lime" by Shwayze
I predict this song will be in the top 10 soon, and my new drink at The Owl on Wednesday nights

Songs I change the channel when they come on the radio:
-"Lollipop" by Lil' Wayne
-"Love in this Club" by Usher/Ersher
-"Take a Bow" by Rihanna

And I'm not tagging anyone because I don't know anyone else to tag.
