Thursday Three-fer: The Gut Wrenchers

You know, those songs you feel in your gut, you sing ridiculously loudly, you make a pained face when you sing them, and you often make a fist and pull it toward you when the lyrics demand it.  I'm a big fan of the gut wrenchers, and I'm proud to say that my son is carrying on that tradition.  He has his own gut wrenchers that he listens to over and over again and gives us a great deal of entertainment when he sings them while listening on his earphones.  I have many to choose from, but here are my three for today:

1.  Hold My Hand - Hootie and the Blowfish
Love.  This.  Song.  If you can keep a normal expression on your face when you sing it, you have no soul.

2.  Hold On - Kansas
I'm not sure that I would have paid much attention to this song, Kansas wasn't really one of my groups.  But then I'm driving around with a boy I had a mad crush on in high school and it came on the radio.  He cranked it up and told me it was his favorite song by his favorite band.  Then he proceeded to belt it out in pure gut-wrenching fashion.  Suddenly, it was my favorite song by my favorite band.  Wow, what I would have missed out on if not for that fateful night.

3.  She's Gone - Hall & Oates
Oh, this song.  It makes my gut tighten just thinking about it.
