Hugh’s 51Weeks:51 Songs from the Past, Week 18

What Goes Around, We Can Only Hope

When How do you like me now?! was released in 1999, Toby Keith’s label wouldn’t promote it, saying that it might offend women. But, for me, it speaks to both men and women. Many of us have been there. As teenagers, didn’t we all hope that one day we would be able to smile and say to those foes (and friends) who tormented or teased or ignored us: How do you like me now?! Not that we had become country music stars. But that we have lived the life we wanted, moved beyond our comfort zones, and are content with who we are.  The 2008 video Alright by Darius Rucker says it all.
