I was intrigued, what can I say….
day 01 – your favorite song
Can I pick? Not so much…. I could go with the songs which make me go all butterfly-heart when I hear them, but then dear reader you might know everything there is to know about me.
day 02 – your least favorite song
I feel like anything I say here would be cliché, overused.
day 03 – a song that makes you happy
“The Way You Do the Things You Do”—The Temptations, “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay”—Otis Redding, “I Want to Hold Your Hand”—The Beatles
day 04 – a song that makes you sad
“Song to the Siren”—Susheela Raman cover, “Anywhere on this Road”—Lhasa, “Hurt”—Johnny Cash cover
day 05 – a song that reminds you of someone
“Unsuffer Me”—Lucinda Williams, “Ambulance”—TV on the Radio
day 06 – a song that reminds you of somewhere
(because of hearing them at specific times in specific places) “Stand by Me”—Ben E. King, “Train Under Water”—Bright Eyes
day 07 – a song that reminds you of a certain event
“I Walked”—Sufjan Stevens
day 08 – a song that you know all the words to
“Little Lion Man”—Mumford and Sons, “My Body is a Cage”—thanks to the Arcade Fire cover, “Over the Rainbow,” embarrassingly “A Total Eclipse of the Heart”
day 09 – a song that you can dance to
I don’t dance. Sad but true. It would be much too frightening.
day 10 – a song that makes you fall asleep
Prokiev’s “Peter and the Wolf” and Patsy Cline’s “Walking after Midnight”…Both in soothing, comforting ways though.
day 11 – a song from your favorite band
Favorite bands are many for me….But “Four Winds”—Bright Eyes is one.
day 12 – a song from a band you hate
Hate is a strong word.
day 13 – a song that is a guilty pleasure
I own my taste, so no guilty pleasures found here.
day 14 – a song that no one would expect you to love
Yeesh, I’m not sure what people’s expectations are of me….
day 15 – a song that describes you
“Sexy and I Know It” Obviously.
day 16 – a song that you used to love but now hate
I’m stagnant. What I love I usually continue to love.
day 17 – a song that you hear often on the radio
Don’t really listen to the radio…
day 18 – a song that you wish you heard on the radio
day 19 – a song from your favorite album
Don’t really have a favorite, but off one album, “Postcards from Italy”—Beirut
day 20 – a song that you listen to when you’re angry
If I admit I rarely am angry it’s like admitting to being a robot, yes? But, I think if I was truly angry, I’d do some Robert Johnson to calm me down.
day 21 – a song that you listen to when you’re happy
day 22 – a song that you listen to when you’re sad
Um, frak, this is making me think I am an emotionless robot….
day 23 – a song that you want to play at your wedding
In the bizarro world where I get married, the song is always going to be “Losing my Religion”—REM
day 24 – a song that you want to play at your funeral
Anything with a really good violin solo, preferably by Andrew Bird.
day 25 – a song that makes you laugh
day 26 – a song that you can play on an instrument
I am seriously unskilled.
day 27 – a song that you wish you could play
“All Along the Watchtower”
day 28 – a song that makes you feel guilty
Ooh, I hope I never find one that does that…
day 29 – a song from your childhood
I was kinda crazy into Foo Fighters for awhile there….
day 30 – your favorite song at this time last year
I am supposed to be able to remember that far???
