A Musical Challenge

While I was stressing over what to do when the "original" 30 Day Challenge was finished, I did a search for memes in the hope of finding something interesting.   The reason I put original in quotes is because what I found was that there are a LOT of 30 Day Challenges out there and they have widely varied themes.  You know I love music so I thought I'd give the 30 Day Song Challenge a go.  It'll require posting a video every day and maybe sharing a bit about the song.  That doesn't sound too difficult and will leave time and space for blogging about more important things (assuming I have any more important things to blog about).

So, without any further ado:

day 01 – your favorite song

Piano Man by Billy Joel wins the honor of being my all-time favorite song.  I've always liked Billy's music, but this song didn't come on my radar until I was in college.  The fraternity that my friends and I liked to spend our Friday nights partying at always ended the party with everyone left in a circle with their arms around each other belting out this song.  Good times, good friends, good music.  I can't hear this without going back in time.

day 02 – your least favorite song
day 03 – a song that makes you happy
day 04 – a song that makes you sad
day 05 – a song that reminds you of someone
day 06 – a song that reminds you of somewhere
day 07 – a song that reminds you of a certain event
day 08 – a song that you know all the words to
day 09 – a song that you can dance to
day 10 – a song that makes you fall asleep
day 11 – a song from your favorite band
day 12 – a song from a band you hate
day 13 – a song that is a guilty pleasure
day 14 – a song that no one would expect you to love
day 15 – a song that describes you
day 16 – a song that you used to love but now hate
day 17 – a song that you hear often on the radio
day 18 – a song that you wish you heard on the radio
day 19 – a song from your favorite album
day 20 – a song that you listen to when you’re angry
day 21 – a song that you listen to when you’re happy
day 22 – a song that you listen to when you’re sad
day 23 – a song that you want to play at your wedding
day 24 – a song that you want to play at your funeral
day 25 – a song that makes you laugh
day 26 – a song that you can play on an instrument
day 27 – a song that you wish you could play
day 28 – a song that makes you feel guilty
day 29 – a song from your childhood
day 30 – your favorite song at this time last year

Billy Joel is always one of my favorites.That looks like a pretty fun challenge. I can't wait to see all your entries. :)

Thom...I can't wait to see my entries, either. I'm already looking ahead and scratching my head over some of them. It will be interesting to see what I come up with. LOL

Boy, having kids and being lied to do go hand in hand. Happy weekend!

On my first mission trip, we were building a house in a very hilly part of Tijuana. There was music blaring all around us from ramshackle cars. One guy had Piano Man, in Spanish with a different tempo, going all day. We were all singing it...

Stacy Lynn said...

Bud...ain't it the truth? A good weekend to you and Kathy, too!

Ellen...Oh my, it probably would have ended up being my least favorite song had that been my experience.

30 day music challenge huh...*considers 'stealing' it* That might actually be fun.

I honestly don't know what possessed me to start smoking. I gave my mom crap about it all the time when she smoked when I was younger. *shrug*

As for the 'farmers & hicks', yeah I think the principal was a bit off his rocker. I pretty much sat back and laughed at some of the stuff they'd do or say to me. I always kept thinking, 'Man, if you were at my old school you wouldn't last a day!'

Stacy Lynn said...

Shawnna....steal away if you want to. I don't even know where it originated. I gave everyone the business about smoking, too, then indulged here and there in college. The stupidity of youth, I guess. I went to a school of farmers and hicks...not too many gangsters there. :P

HalfCrazy said...

Unfortunately, because of the time I was born, I don't know much about Billy Joel! Well, maybe I should listen to some of his songs.. I can't wait to see what you post here in the upcoming days! :)

Stacy Lynn said...

HalfCrazy...Welcome! Thanks for visiting and leaving me a nice comment. I love comments. :)

I sort of bombed out on the last one and didn't finish the last couple of days. But I've been looking for something else to do. I might "borrow" from you this time if you don't mind. At least it'll give me something to write about. And some days even something to think about. I look forward to hearing all of yours.

Stacy Lynn said...

Mich....go for it! I've had a couple of people pick it up and go and another that is going to do it next month. I've actually had a harder time with it than the other challenge. I love music and trying to narrow it down to one song every day....well, most days I have at least 2.

How can I do this on Facebook so that the videos all stay together?
