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…
I think this one should be followed by a ‘Duh’. No explanation needed here, unless you haven’t been following along. 😉
Well, this isn’t entirely relevant to the theme of this blog, but that’s ok! For the month of April I’m participating in the 30 Day Song Challenge, inspired by a Facebook friend of mine who started it a few days ago.
I’m not a person of favourites. I dislike the exclusivity of it, and my ‘favourites’ change constantly, except that 9 is my favourite number. Always has been and always will be, for various reasons (perhaps a post on that some time). Starting right off the bat with my favourite song is hard. I had several songs that were recent favourites, but were SO extremely overplayed on the radio here that I can hardly stand them anymore. I supposed then, that a favourite is one that stands the test of time, or more importantly, the test of repetition. I’m sure I’m over thinking it, but I see this more as ‘Your Favourite Song of All Time’.
I hummed and hawed over this decision for a while this morning, then it hit me. Nothing stands the test of time and repetition more than classic Sesame Street. No really. I love this song. LOVE. It represents so many aspects of me, especially the last year or so of my life. The wanderlust I often feel, the need to explore and urge to travel (even if I haven’t much yet), the importance of family and friends, and the discovery of all the great things in this world… it’s all captured here in this 2 1/2 minute song, and sung by a Muppet in his pajamas. Brilliance.
I am confident to say this is, at the very least, one of my favourite songs of all time.
