Took me a while to get into the challenge – I couldn’t find who started it. Came across the posts by Fandango and bereavedandbeingasingleparent and was enticed to also join in on the challenge.
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.
