30 Day Song Challenge - Part 1

Saturday, 12 March 2011
Someone sent me a link to Facebook's "30 Day Song Challenge"... I thought I'd bring it over here, instead.  I'll do it over a few days.  It has been harder than I thought! 

day 01 - your favourite song
Tricky, tricky, tricky. No, I don’t mean this guy. I mean – how the crap do I choose? Impossible. In the immortal words of that nun chick from that movie with the nuns, “How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?” Here are a few that will always be right up there:

day 02 - your least favourite song’s true what they say; there is a thin line between love and hate, right? So just as I struggle to choose a favourite song, I will likewise with my least favourite. So I’ll let you choose, if you like: log on to BBC Radio1 and whatever is playing now? I’ll choose that.

I’m very good at working out whether or not I don’t like something. What is slightly trickier is working out whether or not I do. Strangely enough, sometimes when I first hear something that I immediately like, it will wind up being one of those things I will eventually grow tired of, and be irritated by. And yet, some records towards which I felt an initial ambivalence will wind up being those you’ll find stuffed in my coffin around my cold, dead body. Weird, I know.

Here’s one that I definitely hate, and am definitely NOT going to change my mind about:

day 03 - a song that makes you happy
Here’s a couple – impossible to be pissed off if these are within listening distance:

I think that's enough for now... stay tuned

3 people had something to say about this...:

Ack! I'm having a crazy busy week, and you give me a 30-day song challenge????? Evil!

Needless to say I just burned 15 minutes doing a rough draft. Posts to start maybe in April.

Thanks for the Elbow video! I didn't know they had performed with the BBC Orchestra, and it's FANTASTIC.

They are playing in my town tonight! Three amazing bands in Newcastle today - Primal Scream, Elbow and Iron & Wine - all at separate venues! I'm going to I&W.

You always inspire and push me. Love it and hate it (so little time in my life). Great blog
