30-Day Song Challenge - Day 20 - A Song You Like to Play on a Road Trip - "Only the Young"
I've take a LOT of road trips. I've driven from an east coast state to a west coast state (or vice versa) four times in the last eight years. And I've lost track of how many times I've taken trips in my car that involve driving five or more hou
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 19 - Your Favorite Duet - "Candy" - Iggy Pop and Kate Pierson
There are a LOT of great #duets scattered throughout music history: Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie ("Endless Love"), Elton John and Kiki Dee ("Don't Go Breaking My Heart"), Jennifer Warnes and Bill Medley ("I've Had the Time of My Life")... And
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 18 - A Song in Your Favorite Style of Music - "Forces At Play"
Today's challenge is another really tough one. To choose a song in my favorite style of music assumes that I actually HAVE a favorite style of music. That assumption would be incorrect. I have a lot of favorite songs, and I have a lot of styles of music th
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 30: A Song That Reminds You of Your First Love
And here we are at the end. It's been another fun-filled 30 day song challenge thanks to @AliCanary posting it. DAY 30: A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF YOUR FIRST LOVE This is tough because I've never really been in love in
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 16 - A Song that Was Remade Better than the Original - "Singin' In the Rain"
Gene Kelly's umbrella-in-the-rain dance in the 1952 movie "Singin' In the Rain" is a cinematic legend. Anyone with even a casual interest in classic films is familiar with the fun, playing-in-the-rain song and dance where Kelly's character, Don Lockwood, c
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 29: A Song By Someone Who Is Dead Now
The penultimate entry in the New 30-Day Song Challenge, and I can only hope @AliCanary is out there, scouring the internet to find a third one! Meanwhile, here's the next-to-last one. DAY 29: A SONG BY SOMEONE WHO IS DEAD NOW
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 15 - A Song that you Would Like to Hear a Remake of - "St. Louis Blues"
If I love a song, having it remade is the last thing I'd want to have done. Because of that, today's song challenge is truly a CHALLENGE. The only real reason a song should be remade is if it just wasn't good enough in the first place. But if I di
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 28: A Song That Mentions a Historical Event
The clock is winding down on the New 30-Day Song Challenge that @AliCanary posted. Three entries left. I hope there's a "newer than new 30 day song challenge" in the offing soon. Meanwhile, here's today's entry. DAY 28: &
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 14 - A Song that You Think is Too Long - "Hey Jude"
Like the "too short" category (any song that I like), the "too long" category can be easily answered as "any song that I DON'T like", but really, that's a cop-out. Since this is a **CHALLENGE**, a cop-out answer like that just isn't going to cut i
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 27: A Song Named After a Person
The New 30-Day Song Challenge that @AliCanary posted is winding down! No! Say it isn't so!! Oh, well, onward. DAY 27: A SONG NAMED AFTER A PERSON This is another one of those you can do one of two ways. You c
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 13 - A Song that You Think is Too Short - "Time In a Bottle"
The easy answer to today's challenge is that any song that I love is too short. Perhaps that's why, as a child (OK, maybe even now as an adult), I was afflicted by that condition that caused me to play the same record over and over and over again. My favor
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 26: A Song Named After a Place
After a quick pause to run to Chicago I'm back to finish off the last five entries in the "New 30-Day Song Challenge" that @AliCanary posted. And this one is personal! DAY 26: A SONG NAMED AFTER A PLACE This doesn't necessaril
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 12 - A Song from a Band with an Awesome Name - "Shiny Shiny"
As I alluded to yesterday, today's selection is from the early 1980's. The New Wave era of music gave us a treasure trove of bands and songs with fantastic names. "Shiny Shiny", released in 1983, is a song from the band, Haysi Fantayzee. Haysi Fan
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 11 - A Song with an Awesome Title - "Bailout At Frog Rock"
With these song challenges that &AliCanary throws out, I find that the best thing to do is to map them out ahead of time. That way, if I have multiple songs that fit a single category, or a single song that fits multiple categories, I can rearrange the
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 10 - A Song that Scares You - "Revolution 9"
Perhaps it's because I grew up not far from where the infamous Manson family lived and I read the book "Helter Skelter" too many times. Maybe it's because people made such a huge fuss when the movie "The Exorcist" was released. Or maybe it was because dumb
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 9 - A Song that Inspires You - "Chicken Fat"
After an almost-three-week absence from the 30 Day Song Challenge, I am back and ready to pick it back up where I left off. My choice for a song that inspires me is very far off the beaten path. I first heard "Chicken Fat" by Robert Preston when I

New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 20: A Song You Like to Play on a Road Trip
Here's the 2/3 mark in the @AliCanary New 30-Day Song Challenge. I love these challenges, and, as I often lament, they seem to pass way too quickly. DAY 20: A SONG YOU LIKE TO PLAY ON A ROAD TRIP This one is tough, becau

Best Music: Special Moments with My Sweet Boy
I've fallen behind in the 30-Day Song Challenge, so I wanted to get at least one post up for it today. I'm now at day #5, which is a song that makes me think of a happy memory. There are a lot of good songs (and entire albums) that make me think of happy t

Day 17 of the @AliCanary "All New 30-Day Song Challenge" is here, and that means I have less than two weeks left in this one! This one finishes out a trilogy of questions about covers. DAY 17: THE MOST SURPRISING SONG REMAKE YOU'VE HEA

New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 14: A Song You Think Is Too Long
Today's entry in the "New 30-Day Song Challenge" presented by @AliCanary is difficult. Despite that, one song popped into my head immediately when I saw it. DAY 14: A SONG YOU THINK IS TOO LONG As someone else said in answerin

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 7 - A Song that You Associate with a Funny Memory - "Achy Breaky Heart"
My sister's kids have provided me with an endless amount of entertainment through the years. My oldest niece loved to sing a little bit more than her siblings did, and when she was little, it wasn't unusual to catch her in the middle of any number of
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 10: A Song That Scares You
The second third of the new 30-day song challenge from @AliCanary begins for me today. This one gave me fits (not the most difficult of the 30, but close). DAY 10: A SONG THAT SCARES YOU My first option was to go for a song th
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 6 - A Song that You Associate with a Sad Memory - "Across the Universe"
I've had this #Beatles song in one form or another in my music library since I was in my teens. I bought my first copy of it on one of those Beatles compilation albums (on vinyl) when I was sixteen or seventeen years old, but I'll admit that this song
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 9: A Song That Inspires You
These song challenges fly by too quickly!!! I'm almost a third of the way through it. DAY NINE: A SONG THAT INSPIRES YOU This prompt gave me a lot of options, from songs of faith to beautiful songs, but in the end I had to go
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 5 - A Song that You Associate with a Happy Memory - "Kung Fu Fighting"
When I was a kid, I had a friend with whom I listened to a lot of music. We would spend literally hours listening and dancing to whatever we had amongst our stacks of 45s or whatever we'd pick up from the radio. (You can read about our friendship o
The ALL NEW 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 10 - A Song that Scares You
A song that scares me is Duran Duran’s remake of “White Lines”, originally recorded by Grandmaster Flash. It’s not at all a scary song. In fact, it’s an awesome tune that makes me rock the heck out, cranking it up when it come
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 4 - A Song that Describes Your Life - "Make Your Own Kind of Music"
Today's song challenge is to pick a song that describes my life; I kind of thought that I had already done that on Day 15 of the original 30-Day Song Challenge (30-Day Song Challenge - Day 15 - A Song That Describes You - "Life For Rent"). But the
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 7: A Song You Associate With a Funny Memory

NEW 30-Day Song Challenge - Day 3 - A Song that Reminds You of Your Crush - "Get the Balance Right"
I don't have a song yet that reminds me of my current crush (it's only been three weeks since our first date), so I decided to choose one from a long-ago crush (more specifically, an almost-thirty-years-ago fiance). I met my long-ago crush at work
The ALL NEW 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 8 - A Song that Makes You Mad
Sorry I took a day off of the #30daysongchallenge , but I had to take some time to figure out what song makes me mad. I’m normally a pretty cheerful sort—one of those Type B people, lazy yet affable. Kind of a “Don’t Worry, Be
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 6: A Song You Associate With a Sad Memory

Why is a Strong Woman a Bitch?
Day 4 of the song challenge asks for a song that describes my life, but honestly I can't say I've ever encountered one that does. And I guess that's not too surprising. I was one of those kids who was never “seen” by the teacher on Romper Room
New 30-Day Song Challenge, Day 4: A Song That Describes Your Life
Here's day four of the all-new 30-day song challenge that was posted by @AliCanary . And this one, like day two, was pretty easy to pick. DAY FOUR: A SONG THAT DESCRIBES YOUR LIFE Let's see....I have 8,200 songs on my iPod. &n

Best Music: A Love Song for My Man

Best Music: What Song Do You Like to Sing With?
Day One of the 30-Day Song Challenge asks for a song that I always sing to when I listen to it. Without a doubt, the song that comes to mind is “We Won't Wait Any Longer.” This anthem written and performed by the late Feri bard, Gwydion Pendder
ALL-NEW 30-Day Song Challenge - A Writing Prompts Exercise

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 28 - A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty - "Black To White"
I'm not sure what the difference is between a song that makes you feel guilty and a guilty pleasure. I have a lot of guilty pleasure songs, but I don't really have any songs that make me actually feel GUILTY. I suppose the closest thing I ca

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 25 - A Song That Makes You Laugh - "Jingle Cats Medley"
Right now, before I go any further with this, I'm going to apologize for the pure, unadulterated #silliness. There are a lot of songs that I think are funny - "King Tut" by Steve Martin, "Rubber Biscuit" by the Blues Brothers, several parody songs

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 23 - A Song That You Want To Play At Your Wedding - I've Got It Narrowed Down to Two Songs!
Since I'm a woman of a certain age and I've never been married, let's just say that I've had a lot of years to think about this one! I actually have several songs that I'd like to hear at my wedding (that is, *IF* I ever have one...) So....
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 22 - A Song You Listen To When You're Sad - "I Never Cry"
When I'm sad, I usually don't have a lot of room in my head for anything else, so most songs just annoy me during those times. Those are times when I prefer silence, which is rare for me. I'm not a big fan of silence. If I'm goin

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 20 - A Song You Listen To When You're Angry - "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)"
I don't actually listen to music so much when I'm angry. I usually channel my anger into a flurry of cursing, or possibly slamming a door or slamming shut a desk drawer. There have been exceptions, though. A few years ago, I lost 52

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 18 - A Song That You Wish You Heard On the Radio - "Pipeline"
One of the reasons I don't listen to much music #radio in my locality is because they don't play a lot of the kinds of music that I like. I'll get lucky sometimes, and I'll be able to pick up a station that's broadcasting from a city that's about 80

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 17 - A Song That You Hear Often On the Radio - "Stay With Me"
I don't listen to music #radio much. If I happen to have the radio on, it's a good bet that I'm listening to NPR. With over 16,000 songs on my iPod, I really don't feel a need to listen to anything that has commercials because I have plenty of

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 16 - A Song That You Used To Love But Now Hate - "God Bless the U.S.A."
I know that this is a really, really #controversial choice for a song that I've come to "hate", so I'm going to say this up front: It's not the song itself...it's the way the song got co-opted by people of a certain political stripe in this country.
30 Day Song Challenge, Day 16: A Song You Used to Love But Now Hate

Today's challenge seems like it should be easy, but it really isn't. The first issue is determining which band is my favorite, which is not a simple task - I rarely have any single favorite bands, so I had to narrow this one down. Once I

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 10 - A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep - "Promenade"
I think that this is probably the toughest day of the 30 Day Song Challenge, or at least one of the toughest, because I can't think of any songs that specifically make me fall asleep. The best I can do is present a song that doesn't keep me awake. &
30 Day Song Challenge, Day 10: A Song That Puts You to Sleep

So, I read the subject of today's music challenge, and thought that it must be a trick question. I mean, I have over 16,000 songs on my iPod, a large number of which I know all the words to (the fact that over a quarter of them are Christmas songs certainl

Here's my next entry in the "30 day song challenge." DAY 7: A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF A CERTAIN EVENT This ranks right up there in the "funny how songs stay with you" department. I still find it odd myself that this song take
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 7 - A Song That Reminds You of a Certain Event - "It Ain't Necessarily So"
Like most people of my generation, I was "introduced" to Cab Calloway via the 1980 movie, "The Blues Brothers", where he played Curtis, the man who told Jake and Elwood that they "got to learn not to talk to nuns that way" and then instructed them to "get

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 6 - A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere - "Slip Slidin' Away"
Paul Simon's "Slip Slidin' Away" reminds me of #Detroit. More specifically, it reminds me of an #expressway in Detroit. My dad's branch of the family tree is based primarily in the Detroit area. For reasons that are unknown to me, most of my child
30 Day Song Challenge, Day 5: A Song That Reminds You of Someone

30-Day Song Challenge - Day 5 - A Song That Reminds You of Someone - "Hitchin' a Ride"
I've never heard the song "Hitchin' a Ride", by Vanity Fare, on any radio station, ever. The only reason I even know that it exists is because of a young girl who lived down the street from me when I was also a young girl. During that year when I
30 Day Song Challenge, Day 4: A Song That Makes You Sad
Here's day four of the "30 day song challenge." This one isn't a hard one to choose, just a hard one to write about. DAY 4: A SONG THAT MAKES YOU SAD There are a lot of songs that make me cry, but only two that break my heart.
Goal Achieved - 200 Posts by the End of the Month!
My friend &valmnz mentioned a couple of weeks ago that she had set a goal for herself of reaching her 100th post by the end of February. I had already passed 100 a while back, but I noticed that I was in the 180s, myself, and reaching the nice, round n
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 4 - A Song That Makes Me Sad - "The Cat Carol"
A couple of days ago, I wrote about a Christmas song that I loathe because the entire point of it is to manipulate its listener to tears. I made the point of not mentioning the names of any sad Christmas songs that are actually good, because I didn't want
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 3 - A Song That Makes Me Happy - "Hey Ya"
"Hey Ya", by OutKast is a song that never, EVER fails to make me happy. It's quite a peppy, uptempo song that doesn't beg your feet to dance; it impels them to - you just don't have a choice in the matter. And really, your feet don't mind it one l
30 Day Song Challenge, Day 3: A Song That Makes You Happy
Here's the third entry in the "30 Day Song Challenge." DAY 3: A SONG THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY There are so many songs that would stand out in this category, but I'll go with a song by a band who has the tendency to make me happy w
30-Day Song Challenge - Day 2 - My least favorite song - "Christmas Shoes"
I have a deep, deep love for Christmas music. About a quarter of the over-16,000 songs in my iTunes library are Christmas songs. If you were to start playing all the Christmas songs in that library on any given day and play them 24/7 without turning it off
My least favorite song is...
Author's Note: As I live on the west coast of the United States, when I submitted Day One, it was still the 24th here, though the time stamp reflects the 25th. I am submitting this Day Two at 2:25 a.m. as partaking in &AliCanary and her 30-

30-Day Song Challenge, Day One - Your Favorite Song
My favorite song of all time is "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" by Rod Stewart. The way the title is spelled always bugged me. Even though Americans might pronounce it that way, sometimes, we would never spell it any way other than "Do". But Rod Stewart is from En
