Of Tuesday Tunes – You Don’t See Me by Josie and The Pussycats

Every now and then I go through a hardcore Josie and The Pussycats phase. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the album to the 2001 masterpiece is not only a great soundtrack, but a great rock album.

Normally, the songs I gravitate most to on the album are the high energy girl power rock anthems. But lately I’ve been really drawn to You Don’t See Me. It’s a lovely ballad, and the sentiment of the song is something that I believe most of us can relate to: being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back.

Favorite lyric: “I dream of fire when you’re touching my hand, but it twists into smoke as I turn on the light.”

Of Tuesday Tunes – I Didn’t Mean It by The Belle Brigade

My song of the week, on a Wednesday sorry, is I Didn’t Mean It by The Belle Brigade.

I’ve loved this song for years, and I go through phases where I rock out to it in my car for weeks on end.

I’m currently deep into one of those phases.

I Didn’t Mean It is reminiscent of classic rock, but it has a fun pop energy. Don’t be fooled by the fact that it’s from the Twilight soundtrack, or that half the comments on the video are about peoples love of Twilight – cause in reality the Twilight soundtracks are phenomenal.

This is the perfect song for taking a road trip, lounging by the lake, or having an adventure on a sunny summer day. Though I’d recommend cruise control, songs like this tend to make me speed.

Favorite lyric: “So I accused you wrong. Now I’m the guilty one. Hey, give me my sentence. I’ll pay my penance. Nothing kills me more than the pain I have for hurting you.”
