25 Days Of Songs: Day 17

Lots of songs make me want to dance. I might even be halfway decent at it, but I'm hardly the best judge. For all I know, what I consider "sexy" in reality resembles me flopping like a gutted fish.

Anyway, here's a song I have doubtless embarrassed myself to before, and probably will again.

25 Days Of Songs: Day 16

Right. Who knew the person who designed this little challenge was sadistic? Eh, maybe it should have been obvious. 

But enough procrastinating. This song makes me cry almost every time I hear it. In fact, it made me cry just now. It reminds me of my grandmother. God rest her zombie bones.

Love you, Gammy.

25 Days Of Songs: Day 15

So, for the record, I love to sing, and I actually don't suck at it (fellow choir brats, repreSENT!) That said, there are some songs I love rocking out to slightly more than others. 

Anything blues, for instance.

Hence, a little Susan Tedeschi.

25 Days Of Songs: Day 14

A song that reminds me of my boyfriend. Since I'm married, I'm taking that to mean my husband. This is -and always will be- our song. 

I know. We're awesome.

25 Days Of Songs: Day 13

So, I'm trying to think of a song that reminds me of a former friend. The only one I can think of is a song that reminds me of someone I knew back in preschool. Bear with me.

25 Days Of Songs: Day 12

I confess, when I saw this day's song, I was tempted to quickly go listen to something else, because the last song I heard was pretty disturbing.

But that would have been cheating, and I'm no cheater.

To set this up for those of you not familiar with it, this song has quite a history in this country. Like I said, it's a disturbing song, written during a disturbing period about a disturbing topic

Originally performed by Billi Holiday, it brought the lynching of Southern blacks into cabarets and concert halls all over the country. During a time when such things were routinely ignored and downplayed, this was no small feat.

It is as poignant and sad now as it was then.

In short, it's not for the faint-of-heart.

25 Days Of Songs: Day 11

This one is easy. Okay, easy-ish. 

For those of you who don't know, I'm one of those super-nerds who secretly dreams of being Eowyn from LOTR when I grow up. Those movies are AWESOME, due in large part to the fact that Howard Shore is a musical genius.

But enough fangirling for one day. On to the music...

Quick aside: French horn? *sploosh* Right. I'm out.
