Today (Fri April 8, 2011) it's a 2 for 1. I started to post on Thurs but Day 1 had me wading through songs for a long time.


DAY 1: My Favorite Song


What to pick? This one stumped me, yet it sounded so easy. I like so many songs. Of all the ones that came to mind I think this is at the top of my faves list:


Billy Joel ~ We Didn't Start the Fire






DAY 2: My Least Favorite Song


This was a no brainer. I've always hated this song even when it first came out and was popular.


Suzanne Vega ~ Tom's Diner




Day 3: A Song That Makes Me Happy


Zac Brown Band ~ Chicken Fried


Several songs make me happy but this is definitely one you just have to turn up and sing along with.




Day 4: A song That Makes Me Sad


Brad Praisley & Alison Krauss  Whiskey Lullaby


Ever since I heard this song it has always haunted me. There are probably more obvious choices I could've went with. Other songs that make me feel sad but this is definitely the most haunting song I think I've ever heard.




Day 5: A Song That Reminds Of Someone


Cyndi Lauper ~ Girls Just Want To Have Fun


This song makes me think bout my BFF Rach and how much fun we always have when we get together. It never ceases to amaze me how much fun we have no matter what the circumstances that may bring us together. We're the kind of gals you see out and about and wonder what the heck has gotten into us. Guarantee you if I'm bawling my eyes out swearing the end of the world is imminent she will pull out all the stops to make me my annoyingly (to some) perky self again. Love Ya Rach! Muah!



Day 6: A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere

The Poni Tails ~ Born To Late

Ok, so this is probably an odd choice. But this song reminds me of driving in the car with my daddy going wherever. In particular, reminds me of road trip to visit the grand parents (a 2 hour car ride!) On this particualr trip we learned that I now had allergy issues (gotta love TX). We stopped to get some medicine from the store. While daddy was talking to pharmacist, I saw an oldies tape set in cute little juke box holder and I just had to have it! No way was I leaving w/o it. (I was all of 8 or 9) No way could daddy tell me no. Man I wish I still had that set. I played those tapes over and over and learned every song that summer.




Day 7: A Song That Reminds You of A Certain Event


UB40 ~ Red Red Wine


You're likely thinking that this reminds me of a time I got three sheets to the wind, maybe even the first time I did so. Guess What? You'd be wrong. SAY WHAT?! Yup, I said you'd be wrong. So what event does it remind me of? The time many, many years ago (1988 or so) that I jumped off the high dive at our community center pool. I did what I was sure was an awesome dive off the big scary board. I climb outta the water and run up to my best friend (no it wasn't Rach though she may have done the same thing) and said, "Did you see that?! How awesome was I?!" She says, "Oh My God! I didn't see it!." Me, "Really? Well watch, I'll do it again." So in the line I waited again. When my turn comes around, I climb up that ladder so sure I can conquer it again. I can dive off it again. SO WRONG! Oh I dived alright. Unfortunately, it turned out I miscalculated or something cause when I hit the water it was on my belly! What pain! What agony! How many people saw it? Oh My God my life is so over! This was the song playing on the radio over the speakers at the time of my unfortunate dive. I force myself to smile and go over to BFF who informs me, while laughing hysterically, that was so funny and how that must've hurt and by the way, I saw the first dive. I never attempted another dive from that board. Just regular jumps, cannon balls, etc...but no more diving from that board. Red red wine...almost everytime I hear it I relive that moment.




Day 8: A Song I know All the Words To


Miranda Lambert ~ Only Prettier


Oh yeah! Who doesn't know all the words to this song? OK, maybe few of y'all out there. This happens to be the first one to pop into my head. I'm sure I know the words to several other songs. (Well, as long as said song is playing)





Day 9: A Song That I Can Dance To

Poison ~ Your Mama Don't Dance

LOL! I really don't dance well at all (ask anyone who knows me, I do a lot of faking it). I seriously considered putting up the Hokey Pokey or a slow dance song (cause who can't slow dance?). But then I thought again. I thought when I'm cleaning house to a mix of music I selected what is it I always bee bop to? This is the song that immediately came to mind.




Day 10: A Song That Makes Me Fall Asleep

Jane Monheit ~ Over the Rainbow



Anything of this nature relaxes me and helps me drift off but this is definitely at the top of the list. I just adore her voice.

Day 11: A Song From My Favorite Band

Bon Jovi ~ You Give Love A Bad Name

Again this is one of those that had me thinking. I mean seriously, I like so many bands. I think that Bon Jovi would have to be at the top (if not #1) of a list of great bands. I chose from rock since I posted a song from country band that makes me happy.


Day 12: A Song From A Band I Hate

Mettalica ~ For Whom The Bell Tolls


So I coulda picked anything of this genre. I picked the first metal band that came to mind and randomly picked the song. 



Day 13: A Song That Is A Guilty Plesure

Spice Girls ~ Wannabe

Well now here's an interesting decision. I think it's all in what you consider a guilty pleasure, especially in a song to be. For me, as sill as it is or sounds it definitely has to be Spice Girls. It's not what I normally listen to but the dang thing is so catchy and you just have to dance (yes I dance even though I really can't) I know, I know...but there ya have it.






Day 14: A Song No OneWould Expect Me To Love



Sarah Brightman & Antonio Banderas ~ The Phantom of the Opera 






Day 15: A Song That Describes Me


Lonestar ~ Unusually Usual 


This song is quirky and a lot like moi. I also happen to like the Gilmore Girls TV show. This was the only video for this song I could find and want to post. So enjoy!



Day 16: A Song  I Used To Love But Now Hate

Journey ~ Don't Stop Believing

I don't think I necessarily hate this song but it is a very close thing. Thanks to Glee (which I've barely ever watched, shocker I know) this song is now very overplayed. I do still like this song and the band I'm just a bit tired of hearing it almost all the time.






Day 17: A Song I hear Often On The Radio

Reba McEntire ~ Turn on the Radio

Love Reba! I hear this fairly often on the radio.



Day 18: A Song That I Wish I Heard on the Radio


Shawn Deena ~ Peace of Mind (acoustic)




So the song I have here is not on YouTube. Don't looked so shocked. He does have a YouTube video of a song titled See. I met this guy on twitter and he also happens to be a great guy and  muscian. I think his voice is mesmerizing. I dare you to listen to this song and not think so. If you happen not to agree, well that's ok, too. Thanks Shawn for allowing me to link to your songs!

 Shawn Deena Music



Day 19: A Song From My Favorite Album


Alan Jackson ~ Midnight in Montgomery 


Seriously, I don't know what to say bout this song. I have just always like it. There's just something bout it. As for the album, it most recently is on Alan Jackson 34 Number Ones. Every song from that album is excellent.




Day 20: A Song I Listen To When I'm Angry


R.E.M. ~ Losing My Religion


Maybe not your typical "angry" song but it tends to be my go to song or at least my go to station on Pandora.




Day 21: Song I Play When I'm Sad


The Rolling Stones ~ Paint It Black


So this is another one that is a go to song on playlist or pandora station. Probably fits the category fairly well, too. 




Day 22: Song I Play When I'm Happy


Sara Evans ~ As If


Yes, I'm aware this was supposed to be Day 21 but I mixed up my days. Oh wells. What I play when I'm happy is really random. But this song, definitely up there on the list. When I'm ecstatically happy I totally act as if the blue sky isn't gonna rain on me.




Day 23: A Song I Want Played At My Wedding


Chicago ~ You're the Inspiration


I interpreted this to be song played at my wedding since duh I'm married. Going on 15yrs now. Awesome, right? Yes, yes it is! Anyways, I didn't have a song played at my wedding. I was 18. Hubby was 20. We planned the thing in less than 2mos, if that. BUT on the ride to our reception at his parents house hubby did call local radio station (KVIL 103.7) to request/dedicate this song to me. I was totally (really totally) awed & flattered that'd he'd even think to call a radio station. The OMG part of it was when not long after I heard him, the dedication, and the song on the radio in our car! Makes me smile and tear up even now. LOVE YA HONEY! 




Day 24: A Song I Want Played At My Funeral


U2 ~ Beautiful Day


How morbid is this thought? It's also another one that made me think. I definitely know I don't want sappy miss you songs or traditional type songs. I don't want people to be happy happy but neither do I want people so down they border on depressed. I thought something like Bon Jovi's Blaze of Glory. Then I realized I already had Bon Jovi on this list. Then I thought I'd like a song that people would totally know was me. Only it seemed inappropriate for a funeral. [Information Society ~What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy) ] That landed me with this song.




Day 25: A Song That Makes Me Laugh


Charlie Daniels Band ~ Uneasy Rider


This one needs no explanation as far as I'm concerned.








Day 26: A Song I Can Play on an Instrument


Joy To The World


Once upon a long (long) time ago I could play this on my little keyboard.






Day 27: A Song I Wish I Could Play


You Belong To Me


This version is by Patsy Cline. I have no idea why this song popped into my head as one I wish I could play. Maybe it's as simple as I like it. 




Day 28: A Song That Makes Me Feel Guilty


Mark Wills ~ Don't Laugh At Laugh Me


There were times I was the kid being picked, lots of times. There were also times I was the one picking on someone. Why did I do it? Probably so others would leave me alone.






Day 29: A Song From My Childhood


New Kids On The Block ~ Hangin Tough


You know I just had to put NKOTB in this slot! This is the very first band (ok boy band, whatever) that I remember liking a lot. Sure there were other singers I coulda put here but back in Jr High this was it!




Day 30: Favorite Song At This Time Last Year


Lady Antebellum ~ Need You Now


This really needs no explaination. I still love this song and group.






Hope you enjoyed my 30 Day Song Challenge. I may have finished a day early or something. I don't know. LOL!
