Three Songs My Girlfriend Likes


It’s late on a Sunday night, and I’ve been in the car for the majority of the day.  I have nothing to write about, so I decided to ask my girlfriend what three of her favorite current songs are, check them out, and quickly give my thoughts.  I had only heard one of the selections before, so I was at least glad to check out a little top 40-ish stuff I wouldn’t otherwise hear.
