Bust Your Windows

The other day while listening to online radio at last.fm, I heard the sweet voice of Jazmine Sullivan singing to a funky, rhythmic beat.  I was tapping my foot before my brain engaged with what the lyrics actually were:  "I bust the windows out your car..."  I then had to laugh that a song so fun and upbeat to listen to was about getting even with a cheating boyfriend. 

Then, I remembered a song I heard on a country radio station by Carrie Underwood called "Before He Cheats" (on her album Some Hearts).  That one is all about knives and ball bats intended to help men stop their cheating ways!  So, it seems this topic is universal enough that it spans genres of music from country to rhythm and blues.

(By the way, each of our branch libraries has a different collection of music.  I found Sullivan's Fearless CD at our Eastwood Branch.  Our online catalog has a special link for searching music selections.  Go to the catalog then select "Music Search" on the black navigation bar near the top.)
