Continuation of my 100 Day Song Challenge selections.
Day 011: A song from an artist you are attracted to. I found this category difficult as well. I listen to A LOT of music, but I rarely look up pictures of the singers. So, I’m going to have to go off of voice/lyric/song content/musical ability attraction rather than physical attraction, which I assume was intended for this category. I LOVE Marcus Mumford’s voice. Love it! Jean and I joke that if he and Florence Welch were to have a child, its voice would be too beautiful to listen to. So, here is Kansas City by The New Basement Tapes, which Marcus Mumford is part of.
Day 012: A song from any dead artist. Wow. The possibilities are endless for this one. So, I’ll choose With a Little Help from My Friends by Joe Cocker because it keeps playing on an ad on Words With Friends and has been stuck in my head for a week. Joe Cocker 1944-2014
Day 013: A favorite cover song. Who sang the original? Hurt by Johnny Cash, originally by Nine Inch Nails. He recorded his version, which is a million times better than the original, about a year before his death.
Day 014: A song with a good video. I love Buddy Holly by Weezer’s homage to Happy Days. And, I thought I should choose it in light of the recent deaths of Erin Moran and Mary Tyler Moore. Ooh wee ooh…..
Day 015: A song you hate. Picture by Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock. I do an involuntary, whole-body cringe whenever I hear this song.
