The 30 Day Music Challenge

There is a 30 day music challenge going down on Facebook at the moment.  Everyday there is a theme and you post a YouTube video of the song that fits it.  I'm copying Not Met Megan and condensing the 30 days into a more do-able version and catching up with everyone else by posting the first five in one bitesize chunk!

Day One:  Your Favourite Song
Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven is the one song that I keep coming back to when I try to pinpoint my favourite song.  It's a classic with Messrs Page and Plant doing what they do best.  It was also instrumental in me falling in love with my husband :)

Day Two: Your Least Favourite Song
The Climb by Joe McElderry stands for everything I hate.  A two bit wannabe being skyrocketed to overnight success by the voting public in a TV talent show (which pedestrianises any sign of genuine talent).  It's just yuck!  Rage Against the Machine beat this to the Christmas No.1.  It was the first download I ever bought...I helped defeat the Cowell empire and its assumption that it owned the charts.

Day Three: A Song That Makes You Happy
The Ugly Bug Ball is a wonderful, life affirming Disney song.  I made up a literal interpretive dance to it as a small child.  It makes me smile :)

Day Four:  A Song That Makes You Sad
I cry like a baby at this tragic Bobby Goldsboro song Honey.  The lyrics are like the script of a weepy.  It gets me everytime :(

Day Five:  A Song That Reminds You of Someone
My lovely 98 year old Nan who died in 2008, loved this song so much.  It was played at her funeral and we just know that she is up in heaven dancing to it with her husband Bill. xxx

  2. Great list, a bit of Led Zep, Disney, Mr Goldboro and Engelbert all classics. Shame Day Two wasn't "The song that beat the song you really hate" then you could have had Rage Against The Machine.
