"Best of.."

The Best thing about Wayne State (or basically any other college in this case) is that you get out of school in the end of April. In high school you had to wait until June to get out (that 2 extra months of summer). Today is April 6th, so that means I only have 16 school days left!! And since I am not going to take summer classes this year, that means my summer is going to be 4 months..instead of 2 months! This probably has to be the best thing about college!...(but the fact that college is way harder makes up for me not likeing it right now).

8-song Soundtrack

We could not think of 8 songs, so we only have 5 songs. As you enter the city of Detroit, the song "Welcome to Detroit City" by Eminem is played. In the song it says "And I Welcome u to Detroit City, I said welcome to Detroit City". The rest of the song talks about shootings and gangs but we arent using that part, we just wanted a song that was welcoming you to Detroit. As we are driving past the Max Fisher building the 2nd song on the soundtrack plays. It is "Shall We Dance" by the Detroit Sympany Orchestra. We choose this song because Detroit Sympany plays here and the songs has alot of city sounds in it. As we drive past the Cobo hall, the 3rd song, "Detroit Rock City" by KISS is played. We choose this song because KISS sung that song in Cobo hall and also Cobo hall was in the movie they did. In this song they state that " You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City". Then we turn down 8 mile road in Detroit, while "8 mile" by Eminem is played. This song pretty much explains itself. But Eminem says that there is "Only way that I know how to escape from this 8 Mile Road". The last song is not really something we pasted in the city of Detroit but it is a song by Stevie Wonder, called "Living for the city", that talks about family life in Mississippi but we thought that what he was talking about also pertained to Detroit.
