Without further ado...
A is for..."Always" and "Audience of One"
"Always" - Bon Jovi
My love for Bon Jovi is rooted deep within my soul and was planted when Cross Road was released in 1994. That album is a freakin' gem and no song got to my like "Always". I played that thing on repeat...constantly. Give me a power ballad any day!
*Fun fact: the song was written for a movie (Romeo is Bleeding), originally, but shelved because the band hated the film.
"Audience of One" - Rise Against
From the 2008 album Appeal to Reason, this Rise Against track is pure gold. RA's penchant for politically driven songs and for social activism is evidenced through not only their music, but through their personal lives as well. Though their newer albums are becoming more mainstream than their previous, more punk/hardcore driven work, their messages are still relevant.
*Lyrics: "Identities assume us / As nine to five add up / Synchronizing watches / To the seconds that we lost / I looked up and saw you / I know that you saw me / We froze but for a moment / In empathy"
