Song Challenge Take 2: Day 55

A song you’ve listened to so many times that you just can’t listen to it anymore “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” / Taylor Swift (2012) I did not listen to the song intentionally. I can honestly say that I have never looked it up on youtube until I wrote this article. I don’t […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 54

The song that got you hooked on your favorite band/artist “Barrel of a Gun” / Guster (1999) Guster is my favorite band. I know that I have mentioned this about ten million times. They have been my favorite since middle school and unless someone really spectacular comes along, I don’t foresee that changing anytime in […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 53

The song that you’re most proud of knowing all the words to “No Diggity” / Blackstreet featuring Dr. Dre and Queen Pen (1996) I grew up listening to this song. It would play every time that I went to the roller rink (shout out to Great Skates!) and my friends and I would always get […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 52

A song that you’ve been listening to for years and still don’t know what the heck they’re saying “Lights” / Ellie Golding (2010) I will fully admit that I have no clue what Ellie Goulding is singing in this song. I love to listen to it and try to sing along, though I am certainly making […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 51

A song that you realized you’ve been mishearing the lyrics for years “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” / Fall Out Boy (2005) Does anyone really know the words to “Sugar, We’re Going Down” without Googling them? It has only been since looking up the words and singing it a dozen times that I now know what […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 50

A song that you’ve listened to for years & have just recently begun to appreciate “A Message To You, Rudy” / The Specials (1979) Newbury Comics (an absolutely fabulous store up in Maine that I love and miss dearly) put out a duo of complication CDs in the early 2000s that I used to the […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 49

Your favorite TV show theme song “Hey Girl” / Zooey Deschanel (2011) I constantly sing the theme song to New Girl. I don’t know what is that is so catchy about the lyrics. Maybe the fact that it is only five lines? Whatever it is, they worm their way into my brain and I can’t help but sing […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 48

A song that you wish you could’ve written “Baby I’m Yours” / Barbara Lewis (1965) I think everyone knows the Arctic Monkeys version of this song but my favorite is the original. It is another one of those romantic love songs that I am growing rather fond of in my old age (ha). The lyrics, […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 47

The oldest song you own “On the Good Ship Lollipop” / Shirley Temple (1934) My mother loves Shirley Temple movies. I grew up watching them on rainy days: Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, A Little Princess, Bright Eyes. Any time I hear a song from one of Shirley’s movies, I think of my mom. Naturally I have a […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 46

Your favorite song from this year “I Could If I Wanted To” / Santino Fontana (2016) Are you watching the show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? If you aren’t, you definitely should be. The best part of the show are the original songs written by Rachel Bloom and her writing team. They are my everything and I love almost all of […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 45

Your favorite song from the 00s “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You” / Black Kids (2008) The first time I heard this song it was being performed by Kate Nash. It was an acoustic version played on a French (I think) radio show and it instantly wormed its way into my […]

Song Challenge Take 2: Day 44

Your favorite song from the 90s “I Miss You” / Incubus (1999) I don’t remember where I first heard this song but I quickly fell in love with it. It has been the #1 or #2 played song on my ipod for years now. The lyrics have always reminded me of Husband and the long distance […]
