Music Manday

Thats right MANday. Thanks to Claudia and Adam for their input. I have to echo their opinion that there are much more obvious choices for women songs. That being said, I have come to the conclusion that the definition of Man Song is in the mind of the beholder. That makes zero sense. You understand my point.
I came to this conclusion in Sunday school. It was the first Gospel Doctrine class I have sat in in months. I am usually in the halls with Lily. We were discussing 2 Nephi and my group was given the following:

Read 2 Nephi 1:13-29 and answer the following questions:

1. What is the world's definition of a man?
2. What is the Lord's defintion of a man?

I couldn't believe the serendipity! Not 24 hours post Man-post and my question will be answered! And from the scriptures no less. Of course we talked about the true definition of a man being one who holds integrity, the priesthood, and virtue of highest priority. I guess then, that the most manly of all songs would be 'Nephi's Courage' from the primary songbook. I guess you were a little off base with 'Paradise City', Adam. Sorry.

Spiritual stuff aside for the moment. I have sad news this Music Monday. As many of you have heard (and by 'many' I do mean 'both') The Format, one of the best (in my opinion, which on this blog is doctrine) pop bands of recent history, broke up on Feb. 13. In honor of them, and their great songs together, I am going to dub this video the most manly of all videos. It is of a less spiritual nature but still, no one can deny the masculinity of boys in sweeping haircuts (it's bringin' me down) taking pictures of themselves. I really have to hand it to these guys for this one.

WARNING: There is a "bad word" toward the end of this song, so if you are planning to watch with your little one in the room, maybe wait until nap time. Or, just watch the first minute. You can still get the idea and avoid any inappropriate parroting.

I am so mad that I can't see the video (blocked at work...I can't even watch my Nickel Creek ones I put on my blog!), and I am so shocked that they broke up! Any ideas why? I just downloaded music off of iTunes by them too on Thursday! Sigh.
