This is the title song from Faith Hill's first #1 country and pop album. It is also where she established herself firmly as a top pop as well as country star. The song was nominated for a Grammy as Song of the Year and Faith Hill won the Grammy for Country Female with "Breathe."
The first thing you'll notice in listening to My Chemical Romance's "Teenagers" is the sure touch with old-fashioned pop-rock hooks in the song. It serves the song exactly how an irresistible hook should.
In "Teenagers," My Chemical Romance depict current society as one in which teenagers are watched for any inkling of getting out of line with enforced norms. They are seen as simply fodder for advancing the goals of adults in power. The response, according to the song, is violence. It's a warning and explanation that have been made before, but rarely so directly in mass popular culture.
Put down the tabloid and listen to Britney Spears on this second single from the album Blackout. She may indeed have serious serious personal problems, but this is quite simply a woman fighting back against what she perceives as injustice with fierce anger bubbling beneath the service of an extraordinarily sexy electro instrumental track. Rarely has a pop star so effectively answered critics.
For "Be Without You" Mary J. Blige hooked up with songwriting and production professionals from Jermaine Dupri's So So Def music group. The song's central plea for couples to look deep into their hearts and stay together if they find true love fits Mary J. Blige like a glove.
Somehow teenager Taylor Swift made teen love, angst, and romance sound incredibly fresh again with this song. It became the first country song to top Billboard Hot 100 radio airplay chart. The song itself is like a mini movie which is played out even more explicitly in the video.
