Rock Wednesday

Hearts Burst Into Fire by Bullet For My Valentine

This Saturday is Valentine's Day so, yes, this is my second BFMV song in a row but it totally fits the week, not only because of the band name but also for the song.

It's a lonely-on-the-road song in the vein of Journey's "Faithfully," albeit with lots more guitars and drums and a few guttural screams. But when frontman Matt Tuck sings "my bed's become so lonely, no arms, just sheets to hold me" the longing makes your heart hurt.

And what woman doesn't want to hear her man say "I'm dreaming, too much time without you spent."

Ah, but more importantly, it's my birthday week! (Yes, week. I take the whole damn week as mine! :) )

Valentine's is when my baby was born. Within the last 3 years it has become one of my favorite holidays (christmas and halloween being the other ones).
On a woman note I get into a country music mood around Valentine's.

Even rockers are romantics at heart. :)

I love country music to put me in a mellow mood, unless I'm listening to the Dixie Chicks!

Hey Adele, yes, they are, just much louder.
