Movin on.

Have you ever woken up one morning and been just SICK TO DEATH of every song you have on your iPod or in the CD case? I have been driving in silence all day, as I can't think of one single song I have within my grasp that I'm NOT overdosed on. I don't want a guy with a guitar (think BYU dorms + acoustic), I don't want a brother with his gold chains, I don't want an AI alumni, I don't want girl power, I have absolutely no clue what my ears are missing.

I need suggestions, my lovelies.
