X is for...X&Y and XXX's and OOO's

Welcome to Tuesday and the near completion of the A-Z Blogging Challenge.  Today's post is dedicated to the incredibly difficult letter X.

X is for "X&Y" and "XXX's and OOO's (American Girl)"

"X&Y" - Coldplay

It's such a chill song.  I'll admit, I got over the hype of Coldplay quickly when "Yellow" was so overplayed.  But they've managed to redeem themselves beautifully.  Well done, Chris Martin.  Still not my favorite Coldplay track, but it's definitely got merit and the album has some of my favorite tracks.

*Lyrics:  "Trying hard to speak and fighting with my weak hand / Driven to distraction, so part of the plan / When something is broken and you try to fix it / Trying to repair it, anyway you can"

"XXX's and OOO's (American Girl)" - Trisha Yearwood

Released in 1994, Trisha Yearwood's "XXX's and OOO's" is just a fun country track.  It did progressively well in the charts and is now used as the theme song for Yearwood's cooking show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen.  It is not, however, my favorite song of hers.  That honor would go to "She's In Love With The Boy".

Lyrics:  "She used to tie her hair up in ribbons and bows / Sign her letters with X's and O's / Got a picture of her mama in heels and pearls / She's gonna make it in her daddy's world / She's an American girl"

What are some of your favorite X songs?  Can you think of anymore?

Blog on, fellow A-Zers!  The end is near!
