Media You May Have Missed: The Fray's newest album, self-titled.

A great way to explore new music, I find, is to listen to CD's all the way through while I'm reading or studying.

I'm one of those types of people. I enjoy having a musical backdrop during every activity I'm involved with.

When I'm driving: music. When I'm in the shower: music. When I'm going to bed: music. When I'm working: music. When I'm studying: ... you get the idea.

I hope to be able to find a contributing writer or writers that can help with this category of "Media You May Have Missed". We all like to be led to great music that we've never heard or movies that we've never seen.

Today - and very briefly - I wanted to encourage you to check out The Fray's newest album. It's self-titled, and equally as good as their debut album How To Save A Life.

I was listening to it all the way through while I was reading in the library for one of my classes.

In particular, I fell in love with the song: Never Say Never. 
Some selected lyrics:

Picture you're the queen of everything
as far as the eye can see
under your command
I will be your guardian from all that's coming down
steady your hand

It made me think very strongly about love and the concept thereof. It made me think about how I use to have a queen, and how happy this made me feel - to have someone to love and protect. To have someone to inspire my most poetic thoughts. To have someone who ignited my passion.

And yes, someone to fight a polar bear for - armed with nothing but this relentless passion.
