30 Songs Meme – Day One – Your Favorite Song: "Riot Act"

So, I’m going to follow the 30 songs meme that my friend Jason on Facebook started posting in response to. He showed me the link here. Looks cool.

It starts with,

Day 1 – Your Favorite Song

A list of my ‘favorite songs’ would go on forever, but “Riot Act” is my favorite song of the moment, and has been my very favorite song at several times in my life — early 20’s, early 30’s … and now in my early 40’s. It means different things to me at different times, probably as it does to EC. I look at it more metaphorically now, while it was very literally a ‘relationship song’ to me when I first heard it when I was 20. And this is such an angry song … rock and roll is best when it’s angry, don’t you think?
