My favorite track is "Same Love" by Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis. This is the first rap song that touches me. This song is about having acceptance of every person regardless of their sexual orientation. This is the strongest lyrical resonant song on the disc. "Brave" by Sara Bareilles is another song that speaks to me lyrically. This song makes me feel strong and to be afraid to say what I feel. I am a big fan of Pink. "Just Give Me A Reason" is a great pop duet. I never thought I would like a song by Justin Timberlake. I must confess that "Mirrors" is a song that has grown on me in the last year. I like this song very much.
I am not a big country fan, but I must confess that I like every country song on here. "Merry Go Round" features superb banjo playing. This is the happiest song about dysfunctional lives I have ever heard. Jason Aldean proves that country tunes can be simple subjects like taking a pretty girl out for a ride in a truck. "Take A Little Ride" is a country song that really rocks. Taylor Swift proves that she is a talent as a solo artist with the pretty song "Begin Again". She also teams up on a touching duet entitled "Highway Don't Care". Blake Shelton has the kind of voice that touches me on the song "Mine Would Be You". I like this romantically sensitive country song.
This disc also contains great dance jams like "Locked Out Of Heaven", "Blurred Lines" and "Get Lucky". I'm sure I would hear these three tunes the next time I am in a club or at a party. I could not get into the song "Radioactive" lyrically, but I think it has a good beat to it. I couldn't get into the song "Swimming Pools". This song just turned me off lyrically with the use of the N word. "Lego House" is another song that did not appeal to me. I think Ed Sheeran's voice does not have a tone in his voice that makes want to pay attention to him. I just wanted to share my opinion about this disc. I really enjoyed most of the songs on this Grammy compilation.
