30 Day Music Challenge

27 Jun

Sorry I haven’t written in a while.  It was a VERY LOOOOOOOONG weekend.  I’ll tell you all about it at some point in time.  Maybe.  If you’re lucky….

Anyway, on to the challenge:

Day 15:  A song that describes you:

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become snarky, pessimistic, and a general tool.  So here’s the perfect song for my jerky self:

Day 16:  A song you used to love, but now hate

I love 80’s music.  Plain and simple.  I grew up listening to Van Halen, Motley Crue, Megadeath, etc.  I love them all.  Except for the power ballads.  I used to love this song, but have grown sick of it, due to my own overplaying it.

Day 17:  A song you hear often on the radio

Ok, this is very difficult for me.  I don’t really listen to the radio.  Sure I listen to Pandora all day at work, and in the morning while getting ready, but I don’t listen to the radio in the car.  This stems from having Sirius for 10 years.  One gets used to not having commercials, or censored music.  I can’t listen to the radio anymore, it just bugs me.  Of course I hate all forms of censorship, but that’s a tale for another day.  So I guess I have to pick a song I hear a lot on Pandora.  Not a problem.   I love this song.  I’m a sucker for jazz clarinet.  I also like the message in this song.

Day 18:  A song you wish you heard on the radio

I’ve got to go back to the 70’s for this one.  It’s a song by one of my favorite artists, who died in 1981.  He had one #1 hit.  Sadly, this is the song of his I like the least.  This song of his, I particularly like on his Greatest Stories Live album (which I have in vinyl, cd, and mp3, yeah I’m awesome like that).  Without further adieu, Mr. Harry Chapin:

Now that I’m all caught up, I hope to not get that far behind again…
