A Song Tag. Again.

This is a song tag I found here, and only slightly altered it.

I like doing these when I have nothing else to write about.  🙂  And, since I’m obnoxious, I am going to TRY to give 3 answers to each category.

And here we go……………….

 A Song You Like With a Color in The Title:

Gold – Sir Sly, Blue Jeans – Lana del Rey, Silver Lining – Rilo Kiley

A Song That Reminds You of Summertime: 

Say Hey – Michael Franti & Spearhead, Woman Woman – AWOLNATION, Little Things – Bush

The first two because of the overall sound of them — upbeat and feel good-ish.  The last because it reminds me of the summer of ’96, which was the most epic of my teenage years.

100 Day Song Challenge 001-005

I am going to participate in this 100 Day Song Challenge on social media and am going to put my selections on here as well.  Starting now…….

Day 001:  A song you know all of they lyrics to.  You Were Meant for Me by Jewel.  I know the words to a ton of songs.  I chose this one because I love to sing it.  And it reminds me of a long lost friend.  ❤

Day 002:  A song from the first album you ever bought.  Wouldn’t It Be Nice by The Beach Boys.  What 9-year-old buys a Beach Boys cassette?  Me.

Day 003:  A song that reminds you of a night out (when and where).  Bennie and the Jets by Elton John.  My seeeeestur and I saw him live in Shreveport, Louisiana three years ago.  He rocked.  Be-Be-Be-Bennie and the Jets!

Day 004:  A song you can remember your parents listening to.  Joy to the World by Three Dog Night.  Because my parents rock!

Day 005:  A song a friend likes but you don’t.  I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink by Merle Haggard.  Oh, Amy……

18 Questions About Music Tag

I wanted to do another music tag post, and I came across this one.  So, here goes.  If you write about this topic, please tag me so I can see your answers.

The Questions are…

1. Which band/artist do you own the most albums by? Easily Eminem.
2. What was the last song you listened to? Woman, Woman by AWOLNATION.
3. What’s in your CD player right now? All six slots in my car are filled with “mixed tapes”.
4. What was the last show you attended? Elton John with my seestur.
5. What was the greatest show you’ve been to? Either 2Cellos or TransSiberian Orchestra.  \m/
6. What was the worst show you’ve ever been to? Probably Aaron Tippin, because he sings country, and I am not a fan of country music.
7. What is the most musically involved you have ever been? I was in band for three years.  Played the clarinet.  I wish I had pursued music further, but I didn’t.
8. What show are you looking forward to?  2Cellos in ATX, baby!
9. What is your favorite band shirt?  My favorite was my Weezer shirt that I had in high school.  I loved that friggin’ shirt.  And Levi Lawhon stole it from me.  Bastard.
10. What musician would you like to hang out with for a day?  There are many.  If I had to pick just one (and this is for today–likely to change tomorrow), I’d say Marcus Mumford.  I have a bit of a crush on him.

17. What was your last musical ‘phase’ before you wisened up?  My musical taste has always been awesome.  😉
18. What is your ‘guilty pleasure’ that you hate to admit liking?  I don’t really have a ‘guilty pleasure’.  I guess if I have to provide an answer, I don’t want to like HandClap by Fitz and the Tantrums.  But I do.  Dammit.  (It makes me shake my butt.)

Memories Music Tag

I enjoyed the book tag post that I did the other day so much that I decided to do a music tag post.  Let me also throw in there that this is the first time I have posted two blog entries in one day.  I fee like I should earn a badge or a patch of some sort.  Perhaps the kinda-sorta-getting-into-this-blog-thing patch to sew on my vest.  I hope you’ll participate in this post.  If you do, tag me so that I can enjoy your answers!

A song that reminds you of your childhood.  El Shaddai by Amy Grant.  I can remember this playing in our house when I was little.

A song that reminds you of your mom.  They’re Coming to Take Me Away by Napoleon XIV.  I know this seems weird, but….okay.  Yes it’s weird.  Ha!  She used to sing this to me, and I love it!

A song that reminds you of your dad.  Keep Your Hands to Yourself by Georgia Satellites.  I remember him rockin’ out to this in his truck.  And, who can blame him?  It’s a great song!

A song that reminds you of your sibling(s).  Insane in the Brain by Cypress Hill.  My seestur and I have had some great moments to this song.  🙂

A song that reminds you of your job.  I Get It by Chevelle.  It’s a kind of angry song, and my job makes me kind of angry.  So, yeah……

A song that reminds you of high school.  Plateau by Nirvana.  My first boyfriend bought me the Nirvana Unplugged album when I was in high school.  And, my friend, Marie, and I used to blast this track all the time.  And, I made a drawing from this song for art class…

A song that reminds you of your significant other.  Iris by Goo Goo Dolls.  Many songs make me think of The Hubs, but this was our first “our song”.

A song that reminds you of a road trip.  Asleep at the Wheel by The Bloodhound Gang.  Self explanatory.

A song that reminds you of someone in your life that has passed away.  Mercedes Benz by Janis Joplin.  My friend, Rolo, loved this song, and it was the first song that I sang in front of other people without shame.  It will always make me think of him.

A song that reminds you of a roommate.  Nookie by Limp Bizkit.  We had a roommate for three years, and during that time, we listened to a lot of Limp Bizkit.

The oldest song on your playlist.  I’m really not sure, so I’m picking Where Did You Sleep Last Night, which was originally recorded by Leadbelly.  I prefer Nirvana’s version, but still awesome.
