30 day song challenge day 8 – final post

30 day song challenge

Whew! Thirty days of songs and lyric posting. I can’t remember the last time I actually stuck to a theme for this long. I’m hoping this is a trend! Today’s prompt: A song about drugs or alcohol. At first I was tempted to go with the old standard “Cocaine” or “Margaritaville” but I remembered this one and just had to share it. Enjoy

Today’s prompt: a song that reminds you of summertime

I don’t know exactly why, maybe it’s just the sunshine but I have this on my summer play list and it keeps me dancing and singing and jivin’ at work and play. Enjoy a little sun in the middle of winter.

Brighter than the Sun

30 Day Song Challenge day 2

Today’s prompt: A song you like with a number in the title

I have no real reason for choosing this song other than I’ve always liked it. Tony Orlando’s voice, the peppy beat, slightly silly sentiment. It makes me think of summer days, hip hugger elephant bell bottoms, halter tops, bare feet and flowers in my hair. Yep, I was a hippie (still am really). For your consideration “Knock Three Times,” may it bring you a smile this first day of 2019.

30 Day Song Challenge Day 1?

30 day song challenge

OK, since I came into this late in order to complete the actual 30 days, I’m going back to the beginning and do the ones I missed. Here we go.

Today’s prompt: A song you like with a color in the title

For me this song is such a classic, under rated and under loved but such an important message. Give it a listen.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 29

30 day song challenge

Today’s prompt: A song you remember from childhood

OK, first off, define “childhood.” I mean really, could pick just about anything up until 1979 when I kind of grew up (but not really). That being said, I grew up in a musical family. Not musically talented but musically inclined. We listened to music, lots of music, partly because we loved music and partly because my Dad loved to build stereo equipment. This has always been a favorite of mine. A tale of political positions, I find it fascinating that it remains as true today as it was when it was written nearly 60 years ago.

The Merry Minuet

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 28

30 day song challenge

Today’s prompt is: A song by an artist whose voice you love.

This is really, really hard, I mean there are so many. There are lots of strong, classically beautiful voices out there from Pavarotti to Adele both of whom I love. There are also voices I love that aren’t classically beautiful but carry such emotion you just stop and go WOW such as Rod McKuen and Rod Stewart. I’m going to dig waaay back for this one to a voice I grew up listening to, grew up idolizing and wanting to sing like (no, I don’t btw), Miss Peggy Lee

An Empty Glass

30 day song challenge – day 27

30 day song challenge

Today’s prompt is: A song that breaks your heart

Oh Man! I hate songs that make me cry. Well, not hate, but I sure don’t listen to them. I used to sing this one, a lot, when I was young. I loved the melody and the flow of it. Then sometime later, I became mortal and began to understand the concept of life, death and loss. Cr** I can’t even’t get through the intro without crying. Without further Ado,

HONEY

30 day song challenge – Day 26

30 day song challenge

Todays prompt: A song that makes you want to fall in love

This may seem like an odd choice to a lot of people. I mean with all the love songs out there that seem like a natural fit. But bear with me a moment. You see, I found true love, after many disasters and years of searching, it came to me late in life. I had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and I’d been fighting the “good fight” for some time. I was tired, I was restless, life had to mean more. I needed a partner, a fellow warrior. I found Superhubs. Superhubs has MS, when we first started “getting serious” he felt obligated to point out to me that he could be in a wheel chair or worse without warning and he was hesitant to inflict that on someone else. I just told him “it’s enough, just to be with you.” Continue reading “30 day song challenge – Day 26”
