1. “Don’t Move”–Butch Walker.
You may know Butch Walker as front man of 90’s one-hit-wonders Marvelous 3, but there’s much more to him than glam rock and mullets. Besides a huge cult following, Butch has produced and written songs for female pop sensations P!nk, Avril Lavigne, and Lindsay Lohan, and has released 7 full-length albums over the last 10 years. “Don’t Move” comes from his 2004 release Letters, and is an epic mix of melody, emotion, and instrumentation, and according to Walker it’s, “what you say, when you have nothing left to say”. If you’re into big choruses and honest lyrics “Don’t Move” is the perfect way to start your day.
2. “You’re Dead”–Alkaline Trio.
If you’ve been here before you know AudioIV is a huge fan of Chicago punk rockers Alkaline Trio. Featured on the album, From Here to Infirmary “You’re Dead” is packed full of emotion and is the perfect example of the band’s signature, bittersweet melodies. Even though the songs starts out slowly, it builds subtly, and before you know it Skiba and friends are screaming at the top of their lungs… and if you’re cool, you’re screaming too.
