The 30 Days of Music Challenge
« on: January 03, 2018, 09:49:31 PM »
Meant to do this on Twitter awhile ago, but throwing it out here...play along as much or as little as you want, I always like hearing everyone else's responses. The way it works is I post once a day in this thread, and you respond with a song that fits within the parameters. Simple enough, right? Here goes.

Day 1
1. A song you're embarrassed to admit you like.
So I've been doing ballroom dance for about 2.5 years now, and this is a perfect song for someone learning a Viennese Waltz - not too fast for a beginner, and not too slow either (otherwise it would just be a waltz). Couldn't stand it before since it was related to Twilight, but I don't mind it now. Go figure.

Embarrassed to admit I like?  Don't really have any songs that fit that descriptor, typically if I like a song, I like it without reservation.  I guess in certain contexts there can be songs where I wouldn't want to show someone I like it, but that's more along the lines of not wanting an individual to judge you more than anything else.

Lol I always railed against poppy songs like this back when, so, it didn't go well for me when this on termed my zone

That song is a jam...and once again I'm left to wonder what this says that I'm not embarrassed by this one at all.  8)

Day 2
2. A song that made you a fan of an artist

So many to choose from (almost went with The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars here), but The Arena by Lindsey Stirling's my pick. Not something I typically would've listened to, but heard this one, quickly jumped into a lot of her other stuff and have been a fan since.

2. Au Revoir (Adios) by The Front Bottoms.

To be fair, I'd never even heard of them, and only saw them because they were opening for Brand New last year (well, 2016. Before the allegations against Jesse Lacy or Brand New, is what I'm saying).

So, part of it was seeing them live and really connecting and being like "I need every CD," but this quick little jaunt is the one that played over and over in my head afterward, so I'm choosing it.

I like that too norm, Ill have to check out more.
For me, Beth Hart with Joe Bonamassa come to mind, holy crap what a duo,

I was contemplating posting Deap Vally which is a female duo devoted to rock (think if Heart and White Stripes had offspring plus an affair with Black Sabbath) but Beth Hart was more of a departure from my signature likes when I was alerted to her existence.

Thanks to those of you that have played along so far - it's been pretty neat seeing the responses.  :thumbsup:

Day 3
A parody or novelty song you like

Had to turn to Weird Al for this one...and he has a bunch to choose from, but I went with this one.

I'm going to stretch this one out based more on the merits of it's video (which I'm at work so can't embed like you cool cats) than the song, but:

Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al
