Song O' The Moment

     There's no way for my musically-enthused behind to pick a single tune that stands out as my all-time favorite jam.  But being an impulsive, ADHD-ridden indecisive young adult, I tend to shout, "oh emm gee, this is my favorite song of all time" every single time a tune I've grown fond of comes on the radio.  So speaking in temporary terms, my current super-hit would have to be the new single by Lady Gaga "Born This Way".  First off, I should start by saying that this worldly woman has got to be one of the biggest proponents for equal rights, more specifically the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders.  Through her music and through her position in the media, she has encouraged millions of oppressed teens and adults to love who they are and not care about the opinions of those who are indifferent and try to break us into nothing.  Through twenty years of experience with hate, I know first-hand exactly what it's like to be loathed for who I am, for not living up to "thier" standards.  She has showed me that I am perfectly on track and ain't nothin' gonna break my stride.  And with this song, she has taught those in the hectics of hate that we are perfect how we are and are born the way we are. 

"No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or orient made
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to be brave"
          -- Lady Gaga "Born This Way"


  1. Totally love your statement in this one! Don't be afraid to be who you really are, everyone else that acts perfect is more or less wearing a mask- hence the housewives. Enjoy life, we only get one! More power to ya baby! :-]

  2. OMG..... Every song is my favorite You just always be yourself and be the best you everyday. The strongest people are the ones who are different and hold their heads up high no matter what life throws at them...
