My Favorite Song at This Time Last Year



...is the same as my favorite song at this time this year. I am old and set in my ways. I am mere days away from yelling at kids to get off my lawn. The only thing holding me back (okay...holding me back most of the time) is that I live in an apartment so a) I have no lawn to speak of, and b) those kids live here, too.

So that does it. That rounds out my Thirty Day Song Challenge (completed in 35 days - not great, but honestly, better than I expected).

A Song From Your Childhood



This was my favorite song in third grade.

A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty

I'm stumped. I can't think of a single song that makes me feel guilty. I think this is an odd prompt.

Maybe if there was a song sung from a cow's perspective, lamenting the poor living conditions that she endures just so that I can have cheese. Aw....sad! But mmm...cheese. *conflicted*

So help me out. What song makes you feel guilty?

A Song That You Wish You Could Play



Learning guitar (and learning it well enough to play a little Flamenco) is on my bucket list. I plan to get to that right after I whittle the three jobs down to one so that I have time for the hobbies and interests that I already have. Then I'll have time to pick up the guitar.

Or maybe I'll just take the summer off and take up with a nice fella on a beach somewhere who can teach me how to play.

A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument



This was my favorite recital piece. It's a lot of fun. I'm so out of practice. Watching her play makes me ache. I need a proper keyboard so bad. I wouldn't sound like this if I tried to play it right now, but give me a few weeks, and I could again.

A Song That Makes You Laugh

"You know nothing of madness 'til you're climbing her hair..."



And it's just not complete without the reprise from Act 2:

A Song That You Want Played at Your Funeral

The original prompt says "A song you want to play at your funeral." I now need to figure out how I can show up at my own funeral and play a song for the people. Without doing the Huck Finn thing. *plots*



When I was little, I assumed that this song was talking about Heaven. I still don't know if it is or not, but that's what I think about when I hear it.

A Song That You Listen to When You're Sad



The Fiona Apple station on Pandora introduced me to this song. I love it. It's soothing when I'm sad. But it also makes me sad when I'm not. Really, anything that ended up on my mix that I listened to when I was writing Emma Jane for NaNoWriMo would fit this category. It's a blue little mix. That was a long month.

A Song That You Listen to When You're Happy



Or pretty much anything happy from Ally McBeal. Close runners up? Hooked on a Feeling and Just One Look.

A Song That You Listen to When You're Angry



The release of this album was timed perfectly in my life. It coincided with my first big realization that the world is broken. It's still my go-to righteous indignation music.

A Song I Wish I Heard on the Radio and A Song from My Favorite Album

I skipped yesterday, so I'll just do two days in one today. Luckily, the songs fit together nicely.

A Song That You Used to Love But Now Hate

UGH.


I thought this was brilliant as a kid. Then I grew up and worked daycare. I feel your pain, Shari.

A Song That Describes You



I'm not a big One Republic fan, but something about this song resonates with me. It's what popped into my mind at today's prompt.

A Song From a Band You Hate

Hate is a strong word. Accurate, but strong.



I am pretty sure that this makes me a traitor to my generation, but I just don't care. The day the music died? The day Nirvana sold their first album.

Day 11 - A song by your favorite band



I have no idea who my favorite band is, but Nickel Creek is definitely top ten. And this is my absolute favorite song by them.

A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep



I couldn't think of any song that made me sleepy, so I borrowed [livejournal.com profile] ravenluvslex's sleepytime music. :)
