30 Day Song Challenge – Day 19 & 20: Favourite Anger

Day 19: A Song From Your Favourite Album
Enough with the favourites! ๐Ÿ˜› I thought instead I’d do my favourite song from my most recently purchased album. How’s that? It happens to be Songs For Japan. The compilation seems rather random, and I’m not sure who or how they decided what songs would go on there. It seems like it would have been nicer to have put together a set of inspiring or hopeful songs rather than just a collection of … stuff. I dunno, anyways, it’s still for a good cause, so yay for that.

Day 20: A Song You Listen To When You’re Angry
I don’t really like ‘angry’ music. It just makes me more angry, and I don’t see the point. I’d rather listen to something calming, but if I were to think of one, it might be this… hahah

Srsly tho, maybe something like this, cause the sound of silence, literally, is nice when I’m angry… unless I’m angry because someone’s ignoring me, then that doesn’t work. That said, this one is a nice calming song at least.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 17 & 18: Radio Play

Day 17: A Song That You Hear Often On The Radio

Around here ‘often’, unfortunately means WAY TOO OFTEN. ugh… It’s really too bad because I used to like this song quite a bit, and I think Adele is really talented (which is refreshing), but if I hear this song ONEMORETIME…

Anyways, this isn’t the official video, but I think it’s cute.

Day 18: A Song That You Wish You Heard On The Radio

I thought about posting a video of various awesome Canadian bands that I can’t listen to any more because I don’t have CBC. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But then I remembered that I can really access them at any time on the web, but it’s weird that I’m in a different time zone from my ‘home’ stations. Also, I used to mostly listen to radio at work and in the car. Now I’m at a job where listening to the radio is kinda hard (very frequent interruption in person and on the phone), and the car is of course only local, since we don’t have satellite radio. Anyway, I thought I should include something that I love, but really DON’T hear on the radio, ever. Check out Pomplamoose. They are fantastic. They’ve recently been featured in Hyundai commercials!

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 15 & 16: Describe Hate

Day 15: A Song That Describes You

Oh rly? Well, this DOESN’T describe me, in a variety of ways, but I wish it did. Both in the way that I sort of wish it was raining so it’d cool down, and also that I wish I had this optimism. Does that count? ๐Ÿ™‚


I like that he actually gets rained on, on stage, and people clap for it.

Day 16: A Song That You Used To Love But Now Hate

This one’s tough. I usually end up hating songs due to overexposure, but it’s not really the song’s fault. It’s the fault of local radio stations for being complete crap.ย  Anyways, tomorrow’s song day is about radio so I won’t get too much into it now. This one I used to really love though. I wouldn’t say I necessarily HATE it now (such a strong word), but I definitely like it much much less.ย  Also, it’s been on Glee, which makes it even MORE overexposed, since that’s the most overexposed show in existence, and I now like that show much much less than I used to (and have stopped watching).

Anyways, this video is stupid, and I also don’t like it, so watch it. Or don’t. I don’t mind either way. I’m sure I’ll get flack for saying that, because she’s being oh-so-creative and expressive with her interpretive dance and makeup/costumes… yeeeah. I still think it’s stupid. The poofy curly hair, and porcelain makeup remind me of all things I hated when I was a kid. Perms, and dolls. Yeah I said it.

On both videos you’ll have to click through to watch directly on youtube again. This is becoming a pain! Sorry. I hope people are actually doing that and listening to what I’m posting! ๐Ÿ™‚ I unfortunately don’t have a way to embed the actual mp3s either. boourns.

30 Day Song Challenge – Days 13 & 14: Guilty Pleasures, Unexpected

Day 13: A Song That Is A Guilty Pleasure

I don’t know if this is exactly a guilty pleasure, because that would imply some shame in admitting that I like this song. Even apparently 14 years (yes, FOURTEEN) after it was released, still not ashamed. Oh my, 14 years though?! Anyway, I could’ve also answered this one for the song that I can dance to. Maybe THAT’S what makes it a guilty pleasure…

This next one’s a bit of a transition one between these two. It’s a guilty pleasure, and I think one that people wouldn’t expect me to love (but who knows). This is the version of the video that first made this a ‘sensation’, but check out the official video too (linked in the youtube page’s description). It’s actually super cute, in my opinion. Warning, this is the version with ‘explicit lyrics’. Here’s the clean version.

Day 14: A Song That No One Would Expect You To Love

I almost started to think that Day 13 and 14 were basically the same, but then I realized that most people probably wouldn’t be too surprised in my answer(s) to #13.

Day 14 was actually really hard. I don’t know what people would or wouldn’t expect me to love. I try to share music I love (part of the motivation to do this challenge). Why keep it to yourself?

Anyways, I think it would be this one. It’s so bad… lol but funny. Let’s put a disclaimer on this one too. Not for everyone… haha

30 Day Song Challenge – Days 11 & 12

Day 11: A Song From Your Favourite Band

Again, I hate favourites. They constantly change, and I have groups that used to be favourites, that are no longer favourites. In my process to eliminate non-favourites, I decided a favourite band would be one who’s CD I would buy without hesitation, and without having heard a single track off of it before purchase. By that definition, I guess my favourite is Jack Johnson, because I would buy any CD of his. I have 3 already. We also saw him in concert last year, a week before my 30th birthday! I have other favourites, but this is possibly my favourite favourite. … ?

So here you go; one of my favourites, from one of my favourites.

Day 12: A Song From A Band You Hate

Icky! Do I have to? Siiiiigh… ok. Fine. Here. The first, and last, time this will ever be on my blog.

I need to go throw up now. Ew… EWWW…

30 Day Song Challenge – Days 9 & 10

Oops! I missed Day 9 yesterday. I had started considering what song I’d select, then decided to think on it, and then never did. lol! So, for Day 9, which is A Song You Can Dance To, I think I’d select this one (the video creeps me out though):

I’ll have to think on it though, because I feel like there are better answers, but I do know that I always get excited when the DJ plays this one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Day 10 is A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep. I really like this song, but I’m gonna have to go with it anyways. Beautiful song really, but considering I’m already feeling kinda sleepy after too much sun today I’m kinda worried tha—- zzzzz…..zzzzzzzz……zzz.
