30 Day Song Challenge – Days 29 & 30: The Past & The End

Day 29: A Song From Your Childhood

I thought about uploading a nursery rhyme, or a church tune, but I thought this one might bring more memories and amusement for people. For those not in the know, first, I am sorry your childhood did not include Polkaroo. lol … second, this is the opening song to a hilariously weird Canadian kids’ show called Polka Dot Door. I suggest you look it up some time.  You won’t be the same.

Day 30: Your Favourite Song This Time Last Year

We began with favourites, so I suppose it only makes sense that it ends with favourites. I can’t believe I made it to the end. I did cheat and posted 2 a day every other day for the most part, but still. Not bad, for me.  😉

Anyways, I have NO idea what my favourite song was this time last year.  I don’t really do Top 40, so I can’t judge by the charts. I went into iTunes and checked out the ‘free’ song of the week that I downloaded around this time last year, and it kinda makes sense. I really liked this song a lot, but am starting to get tired of it now. Some songs don’t really have repeat value. Also, the video is weird, and I think we all know how I feel about weird videos.

.

So, at the end of the 30 Day Song Challenge, I can say that I think it’s been fun!  There are some different choices I may have made, looking back. I thought of answers to some challenges after they had passed, but that’s ok.  🙂  Here’s a bonus farewell song for you.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 27 & 28: Wishful Guilt

Day 27: A Song You Wish You Could Play

Continuing with day 26‘s take on playing instruments, I wish I could play anything! Anything and everything. I guess, specific to the ukulele, I wish I could play this (I’ll just keep dreaming… haha)

Day 28: A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty

Sadly this one. Probably because I’m 30, and apparently society says my life is already over… sigh. On the plus side, I don’t have a tattoo ‘you know where’, and don’t go around having one night stands and dancing in public bathrooms. That’s good, right?

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 25 & 26: Laugh and Play

Day 25: A Song That Makes You Laugh

I don’t know why (or maybe I do), but I think this one works. In fact, I can’t decide if the song or the video make me laugh more.

Day 26: A Song That You Can Play On An Instrument

I can prove it.  There are a couple of others I can play, and I used to be able to play lots on the keyboard/piano, but not so much anymore. Anyways, this is the only one with proof (and it’s not very good proof… LOL).

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 23 & 24 – Wedding and a Funeral

Day 23: A Song That You Want To Play At Your Wedding

Ah yes, every little girl’s dream, blahity blah blah. Well I’m going to skip this one, because we didn’t get to have any music or dancing at our wedding at all.

Thanks U.S. Immigration Process… I’m not bitter.

Day 24: A Song That You Want To Play At Your Funeral

K, amusingly I’ve already known this for a while.  lol!  I’d even write it in my will (if I had a will, which I don’t). Anyways, it makes me cry, so HAH!! Big sopping messes at my funeral! Awwww yeah.

You’ll have to click on it, but you’ll get a full screen version! muah haha…

Also, I’d like this to play too, but I can’t decide what version. However, if it’s the Glee or Justin Bieber covers, I will come back and haunt someone and BUST A CAP IN YO’ A–…. um… k, here’s the song.

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

Day 19: A Song From Your Favourite Album
Enough with the favourites! 😛 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. 😦 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!
