To the one who started this challenge, thank you so much! I used to love singing, but eventually settled to just appreciating music. Here’s my take on the 30-Day Song Challenge, covering Days 1 to 15.
Day 1: A song you like with a color in the title – Not really a color, but THE color. Lauren Christy’s The Color of the Night.
Day 2: A song with a number in the title – reminds me of college days, when Leo was such a big heartthrob! This is from the soundtrack of Romeo + Juliet: #1 Crush by Garbage.
Day 3: A song that reminds you of summer time – yet another song from one of Leo’s movies, The Beach. This one’s from All Saints, called Pure Shores. When I was in El Nido, I was humming to this song when we were at Duli Beach.
Day 4: A song that reminds you of someone you’d rather forget – I don’t want to delve on explaining this LOL
Day 5: A song that needs to be played loud – Muse’s Starlight. Thank you.
Day 6: A song that makes you want to dance – Larusso’s On ne s’aimera plus jamais
Day 7: A song to drive to – D first heard this when he was en route to The Great Ocean Road when he visited me in Melbourne years ago. I like it too!
Day 8: A song about drugs or alcohol – this one’s a Filipino song by one of the most prominent bands The Eraserheads. It’s called Spolarium. The chorus, when translated to English, says something like: and now we still don’t know why we’re here, can you please stop the world from spinning around.
Day 9: A song that makes you happy – before my first ever visit to Paris, I played this song again and again. Aux Champs Elysees. Now whenever I hear it it brings good memories.
Day 10: A song that makes you sad – I’ll Never Love Again by Lady Gaga, from the soundtrack of A Star is Born. This is the part of the film when I bawled my eyes out.
Day 11: A song you never get tired of – speaking of A Star is Born, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s Shallow is one of the songs I just don’t get tired of. Argh I’m still having goosebumps listening to it now.
Day 12: A song from your preteen years – Madonna’s Like A Prayer, released in 1989 when I was still in grade school.
Day 13: A song you like from the 70’s – Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, released in 1973.
Day 14: A song you’d love to be played at your wedding – done that more than a decade ago. If D and I were to do it again, I’d include this in the list of songs. Louis Armstrong’s La Vie en Rose.
Day 15: A song you like that’s a cover by another artist – in the spirit of Christmas, I’d say The Twelve Days of Christmas by Disney. My particular favorite is all of Donald Duck’s lines.
