Day 1: Favorite Song

30 days about meI think they are trying to play a joke on me with this prompt…or since I am hosting it this round would that be me trying to play a joke on myself LOL.  Picking one favorite song for me would be torture since it can change daily or even hourly LOL.  Since I like to stand out in a crowd occasionally I am going to play by my own rules and share some of my favorite songs rather than just one.  And I am going to do it by era…

1950’s (Let me go ahead and say that 50’s is one of my favorite era’s)

  • Splish Splash
  • Johnny B. Goode
  • Lollipop
  • Tears On My Pillow (always think of Grease when I hear this)
  • Rockin’ Robin
  • All I Have To Do Is Dream
  • Little Darlin’
  • Come Go With Me
  • Heartbreak Hotel (and let’s go ahead and say every Elvis song ever to make it simple)
  • Earth Angel
  • Respect
  • I Heard It Through The Grapevine
  • (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
  • My Girl (I remember my grandmother singing this to me so it’s a warm fuzzy feeling kind of song LOL)
  • Soul Man (tell me it doesn’t make you think of Dirty Dancing or even better Patrick Swayze and I say you are lying)
  • Oh, Pretty Woman
  • California Girls
  • Brown Eyed Girl
  • A Natural Woman
  • Wipe Out
  • My Boyfriend’s Back
  • Hotel California
  • Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Free Bird
  • I Will Survive
  • Dream On (and pretty much every other Aerosmith song there is from here on out)
  • We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions
  • YMCA
  • Wonderful Tonight (which btw was the theme of my senior prom)
  • Margaritaville (all all things Jimmy Buffet)
  • I can’t even go there because 80’s is absolutely by far my favorite era.  Prince, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Poison, Madonna, Guns N Roses, Joan Jett & The Black Hearts, Pat Benitar, The Bangles, Cyndi Lauper, Whitney Houston, Micheal Jackson, Janet Jackson, George Michael, Def Leppard, Journey, oh my gosh I could go on and on so just know pretty much all things 80’s (minus the heavy metal) I pretty much loved.
  • Rounding out my my top 3 along with the 50’s and 80’s this is the other era I loved!  So just go to this site and you can pretty much see all the songs I loved.  Loved NKOTB (early 90’s), ‘N Sync, BSB, Britney and all the teeny bopper stuff LOL.
2000’s until now:
  • Ms. Jackson
  • Fallen
  • Survivor
  • Dilemma
  • Hey Ya!
  • Crazy In Love
  • Yeah!
  • Check On It
  • Word of God Speak
  • I Can Only Imagine
  • Cry Out To Jesus
  • How Great Is Our God
  • Walk By Faith
  • Before The Morning
  • Blessing
  • Beautiful, Beautiful
  • Stronger (by Mandisa)
  • I Will Not Be Moved
  • The Real Me
  • What Love Really Means
  • Lead Me
  • I could go on, I have really taken up to listening to contemporary christian more often than anything else, it always keeps me uplifted and encouraged.  And that being said I will leave you with a video of one of my current favorite christian artists Francesca Battisteli’s Beautiful, Beautiful:
