It's kind of killing me that you keep referencing Ben Rector stuff that I haven't heard. I can't handle it, I just really need to hear it.

Bleeding Love? Really? thats your personal #1? Not that I am judging because i hate when people do that. Its just I didn't expect that to be your top song. Apparently its the worlds #1 song from what i have heard. Didn't realize it was so big. But when it gets put as #1 on your list, maybe I should give it a second look.

I LOVED Bleeding Love. I could listen to that song over and over and over. I never got tired of it.
