One A Day: THE Last One!!!!

Oh my days, I’m not taking up on any other challenges that will require continuous attention. I simply don’t have the time or energy for it. After so many months, it’s finally here, the last post of the 30 day song challenge that took approximately 6 months to complete. Happy days!

Day 30: Your favourite song at this time last year

So I started these challenges with John Mayer and I’ll be finishing it with him too. To make it even better, I’m cheating my way out of this by adding the entire album! Last year my favourite song was Stop This Train for many reasons that I think may have been mentioned in this blog before. Unless I’ve been daydreaming about life as sugar, I’m sure I’ve embedded this song here before.

Stop this train speaks to me in a very strange way and somehow it always makes me feel better. If you are curious, the song starts on 23:52 on the video below.

Stop this train
I wanna get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
but, honestly, won’t someone stop this train?

So scared of getting older
I’m only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find a way to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said, “Help me understand.”
He said, “Turn 68,
you’ll renegotiate
Don’t stop this train
Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in
Don’t think I couldn’t ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly, we’ll never stop this train.”

Once in a while when it’s good
It’ll feel like it should
And they’re all still around
And you’re still safe and sound
And you don’t miss a thing
‘Til you cry when you’re driving away in the dark.

One A Day: Diary of Jane

Okay, before Riccardo kicks my virtual derriére, I shall complete this song challenge that was meant to last 30 consecutive days and well, 6 months later and we’re still here, thanks to me!

Day 27: A song that you wish you could play

This was THE FIRST song that popped my mind, the acoustic version in particular.

Day 28: Skipping this nonsense. Surely Riccardo will come up with a logical way to approach this!

Riccardo, head’s up. day 29 is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Day 26: A song that you can play in an instrument

I can play this on my acoustic guitar, very easy power chords….

No, it has nothing to do with Shrek, I used to like Counting Crows.

Day 25: A Song That Makes You Laugh

Five days to go and we’ll be finally done with the 30 days song challenge that should have been finished months ago…

A song that makes me laugh…. I decided to go for Tim Minchin! I was going to choose ‘If I didn’t have you’ but ‘Inflatable’ is funny.

One A Day: Hold My Hand

Day 23: A song that you want to play at your wedding

With a little love, and some tenderness
We’ll walk upon the water
We’ll rise above this mess
With a little peace, and some harmony
We’ll take the world together
We’ll take ’em by the hand
‘Cause I’ve got a hand for you
‘Cause I wanna run with you

Hootie and The Blowfish – Hold my hand

This is the first song that popped my mind. It’s far from one of my favourite songs and I know I could come up with something more my style but I didn’t really want to spend much time with this challenge in particular. I have mixed feelings about the whole ideology behind it and if I ever get married, I see myself eloping more than having the traditional catholic style wedding – or even a civil ceremony with an after party.
