30 Day Song Challenge – Day 9

I’m a little behind but doing my best to catch up. These lists are a little harder because they could contain so many songs. So, I’m going to try to keep today and tomorrow’s lists down to around 20 songs or less. We’ll see. Today is Day 9 so that is “a song that makes you happy”. I chose “Hooked On A Feeling” by Blue Suede. Yes, the song from Guardians of the Galaxy. But I like it and it’s also my ring tone.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 8

Today is Day 8 folks! That means “a song about drugs or alcohol”. I have a big ol list of these. Not sure what that says about me, but it is what it is. I chose 3 for this on my Instagram. “Don’t come home a drinkin’ with lovin’ on your mind” by Loretta Lynn, “You don’t know how it feels” by Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers, and “Candy” by Machine Gun Kelly ft. Trippie Redd.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 7

Welcome to Day 7 everyone! Not gonna lie, kinda proud of myself for keeping up with this for a week so far. Let’s hope we can keep that momentum going. The hardest part for me is choosing the song some days. I love music and listen to A LOT of different genres. Today is proof of that. Day 7 is “a song to drive to.” I chose “Ramblin’ Man” by the Allman Brothers. This list is just basically a diverse road trip list. Have fun, and leave me your suggestions!

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 6

Welcome back folks, and happy Monday! Today is Day 6 of this music challenge. Hopefully you have come across some songs you like. Maybe some you forgot about, maybe some new ones. As always, you can send me your thoughts or choices, or tag me here or on Instagram! But I digress, today is day 6, so that means “A song that makes you want to dance”. The problem here is that I don’t and can’t dance. But these are some songs that make me want to dance, even if it’s just around the house while washing dishes. The song I chose was “I want you back” by the Jackson 5.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 5

Day 5 y’all! A few of you are new here. Not sure what you followed me for but I hope I deliver. Day 5 of this challenge is “Song that needs to be played loud”. There are a lot of different ways you could interpret that but I just went with songs that I usually turn the volume up on if I hear them. Like the rest of these lists, I’m sure there are more songs I could add if I had unlimited time to think about it. Who knows, I might continue to update these playlists even after this is over. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them! My choice for Instagram is “Wash It All Away” by Five Finger Death Punch.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 4

Welcome back again. If you’re new here, we’re doing the 30 Day Song Challenge. I would love to hear your input – songs you like, songs you hate, what you think would be a better choice. Feel free to tag me here, or on Instagram.

Today is not a day I was looking forward to. It’s not so much that it’s painful, but that I hate re-associating some of these songs with people I’d rather forget. Some of these songs I like, so I do my best not to remember all the crap around them. The main song I chose reminds me of my abusive ex. That’s a tricky situation as it is. It’s been more than 10 years since we dated, but we dated all through high school so it was very traumatic. Yesterday was also his birthday… or it would have been, but he is no longer with us. Which makes this a little strange. I’m not trying to be insensitive, nor am I going to explain why the song reminds me of him. We will let sleeping dogs lie. The song I posted to Instagram is “Under The Moon” by Insane Clown Posse.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 3

Welcome back everyone! I’m going to keep posting the picture for reference of the days. Real talk, I keep it saved in my phone so I can remember them, as well as posting it and the song in my story every day on Instagram.

Day 3 is “A song that reminds you of summertime”. With the weather today, this was very appropriate. I grew up going on road trips with my parents, just going out for a drive, and on a farm. So, some of these in my playlist will be things I remember my Dad blasting in the car, on the stereo at the house with all the windows open (we didn’t have central heat or air), or in the garage working on something or the other. Some are more my taste from later on as a teen and young adult. My song of choice was “Country Side of Life” by Wet Willie.

My Dad was always a fan of Wet Willie. He had this CD in his cd album, and if I remember correctly, it was black with basketballs on it? This song and “Keep on Smilin'” are permenantly etched in my brain, and I’m ok with it. Since I recently lost my Dad, I’ve held on dearly to the ear worms that pop up from those two songs. It’s either when I’m having a bad day, or when things are going great, and the weather is nice. Strange, but fitting. Anyways, here’s the rest of my list as well, hope you enjoy.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 2

I’m going to go ahead and try to post this one, so I will be caught up, and hopefully keep my schedule to post one a day. Here’s the picture, for anyone just joining me.

Today is Day 2, so that is “A song you like with a number in the title” and honestly, I never realized how many there were until I started looking them up! The song I chose to add to my Instagram story for today though, was “Seven Spanish Angels” by Ray Charles and Willie Nelson. What is your song choice?

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 1

Everything is crazy right now, so when I ran across this piston Facebook from a friend of mine, I decided it would be a good distraction for me. It is a 30 day song challenge. I have been posting them to my Instagram story, but only two days in, I remembered how much I love music. It’s so hard to pick just one song. So, I decided to blog about it, and post all the songs I would have posted here. Some days there might only be one or two, other days there might be an entire playlist worth. If you decide to do this, please let me know. I would love to hear the songs you’ve picked. You can send them to me here, or tag me on Instagram here.

Here is the original picture:

Day 1 is “A song you like with a color in the title”. My choice that I posted was “Black Magic Woman” by Santana.

My original pick was another song I’ve heard all my life,”Tangled Up On Blue” by Bob Dylan. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a good version of it on the Instagram music selection.

Here is the rest of my list via Spotify. I’d love to hear any of your songs, especially if they’re different than mine!
