Song Challenge 29 – A song from your childhood

This one was so easy to decide on. I have been liking music for as long as I can remember and I even remember liking certain songs when I was no more than 4 years old. According to my parents I had my first favorite song at the age of 2: Bronski Beat’s Tell Me…

Song Challenge 28 – A song that makes you feel guilty

This one is difficult. I really have no clue what to make of this. It cannot be about songs that are guilty pleasures as that is already part of a challenge. Songs make me happy, sad, angry or w/e. But guilty? No I’ve never experienced anything like that from listening to a song. I don’t…

Song Challenge 27 – A song that you wish you could play

This song is a classic and I really wished I could actually play it. I can play it, in Guitar Hero, but as that doesn’t really count, if I would ever learn to play guitar this is the first song I’d want to master. Best riff in the universe. I’m of course talking about Pearl…

Song Challenge 26 – A song you can play on an instrument

I already told you before that I sing, but don’t play any instruments, so please please please don’t laugh. I already listed a song that I can sing in the post on a song I know all the words to. Therefore I thought it would only be fair to list a song here that I…

Song Challenge 25 – A song that makes you laugh

This one is EASY!!! I love silly songs! I love happy songs! I’m one of those people who still listens to the Macarena and dances the Lambada. I dig tunes that parody other songs, rework other songs. So, technically, I could get away just by posting everything Weird Al Yancovic ever did. Or every single…

Song Challenge 21 – A song that you listen to when you’re happy

This one is easy as pie! THE BEST happy song of the moment is Martha & The Vandellas – Dancing in the Street. Great Motown song written by Marvin Gaye, covered by Mick Jagger and David Bowie for Live Aid in the 80s and just a great pick-me-up-and-put-a-smile-on-my-face song. Now including super retro video. Enjoy!

Song Challenge 20 – A song that you listen to when you’re angry

I’m not an angry person, I’m a pretty happy person by nature. However, there are a few ‘angry’ songs that have made its way into my playlist. Blue October – Weight of the World Chasing Shadows – Ill Editors – Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool Garbage – I Think I’m Paranoid

Song Challenge 19 – A song from your favorite album

My favorite album of all time has to be Pink Floyd’s Darkside of the Moon. Unfortunately for me, I already featured a song from that album during this challenge so I’ve decided to go with a different song. Instead, I’m giving you a song by Johnny Flynn. I swear, I will hunt you guys down…

Song Challenge 18 – A song you wished you heard on the radio

That isn’t all that difficult: pretty much EVERYTHING I listen to. One of the perks of listening mostly to Indie & Alternative is that you won’t hear it on the radio all that quickly. One band which I think deserves more airplay, or at least more recognition is Elbow. I fell in love with Elbow…

Song Challenge 17 – A song that you hear often on the radio

I don’t listen to the radio. Ever. I quit listening to the radio some years ago. The only time I listen to the radio is when the Radio Top 2000 is on. Since that’s about one week (not even) a year that I’m listening to the radio, I cannot really make a valid post regarding…

Song Challenge 15 – A song that describes you

Again a difficult one. Probably because I can’t think of a song that describes all of me in one go. I guess I don’t listen to music to find myself or whatever deep stuff you could come up with. I guess it’s pretty safe to say though that I’m a pretty independent chick. So a…

Song Challenge 13 – A song that is a guilty pleasure

I think any sappy love song could be a potential guilty pleasure and I happen to love sappy songs. The mushier the better! And the kings of the perfect sappy love songs are of course Boyz II Men! Here they are with On Bended Knee (my fave song by them!)

Song Challenge 12 – A song from a band you hate

I can’t really think of a band I hate. It’s usually music styles I don’t like and when I don’t like something I simply don’t listen to it. That made picking a song quite a feat. However, I manage to find something. Rather than ‘hate’ I would like to introduce you to a band of…

Song Challenge 11 – A song from your favorite band

Back when I was an avid Backstreet Boys fan this song would have been so easy to answer. Right now, picking a favorite band is something that is so difficult. Let alone picking a song from that band. It changes weekly. Therefore I will post songs from multiple bands that I’m digging right now or…

Song Challenge 10 – A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep

I don’t know whether I should take this title in a positive or negative way. I’m taking it positively. Some songs just make you relax and make it easier for you to fall asleep. I have several songs that do that for me. In fact, I have a playlist titled relax which does just that….

Song Challenge 09 – A Song You Can Dance To

I’ve been taking dance classes since I was 6 years old and was dancing way before that, so again there are simply too many songs to choose from. If I have to list artists whose songs I like dancing to I would even have to write a post longer than the Bayeux Tapestry. Not gonna…

Song Challenge 08 – A Song You Know All the Words To

I sing. Sometimes. Under the shower, in my room, when I’m in a good mood, or just whenever I feel like it. I even took some singing classes a few years ago. I am by no means a great singer, but I can sing a tune or two. Therefore I’m giving this post a bit…

Song Challenge 06 – A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere

This one was easy! When I was living in the US as an exchange student, the one song I heard the most must have been Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway. And every time I hear the song now it reminds me of the 4,5 months I spent at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg Virginia…

Song Challenge 05 – A Song that Reminds You of Someone

This song will remember me of my mom for the rest of my life. She played me this when I was little and sang it to me before bed time. I even had some scarlet ribbons for MY hair. Heartbreaking, yet pretty song by Sinead O’Connor (my mom’s favorite artist together with Michael Jackson lol).

Song Challenge 04 – A Song that Makes You Sad

There is only one song that never fails to get me teared up and actually made me cry: Christina Aguilera’s Hurt. I have a hard time listening to this every single time and when I went to see Christina Aguilera in concert in 2006, I burst into tears. I don’t even know why and it…

Song Challenge 03 – A Song That Makes You Happy

This one was about as hard to pick as my least favorite song. I simply have too many songs that make me happy, because music makes me happy. Though, my ultimate this-song-makes-me-smile-and-I-can’t-get-that-grin-of-my-face song is Martin Solveig’s Hello. This song was terribly overplayed on Dutch radio, but luckily for me, I don’t do radio. This song…

Song Challenge 02 – Your Least Favorite Song

I had the hardest time coming up with a song I truly truly despise. My conclusion: if I hate a song, I don’t have it/ won’t listen to it/ avoid it and therefore forget all about its existence. That is why I went with a song that I absolutely detest, not because I hated it…

Song Challenge 01 – Your favorite song

I already posted about my favorite song when I did the 30 Day Blog Challenge. I picked Mesh 29’s Over the Barricade. This is still my favorite song, but since I have tons of favorite songs it certainly doesn’t end there. It’s actually the reason why I decided to post songs of the day. When…

30 Day Song Challenge

After the 30 day Blog Challenge, it is now time for the 30 day SONG challenge. Only I’m not gonna post a song every day, but more like once a week. I still want to be able to blog about other things as well! I found this challenge on Facebook. Source: Weheartit.com Here are the…
