For the next undetermined amount of time I will be completing these changes without full access to my iTunes library (there’s been an accident with my Macbook). However, the challenge must go on and so I will use my iPod to help me determine appropriate songs.
This song, “Down by the Water” by The Drums immediately came to my mind as a good song for this challenge. I first heard this song on an episode of Gossip Girl and it quickly became a part of my music library. It’s got a slow rhythm that makes it ideal for me to listen to as I fall asleep. It’s emotional and heart-wrenching, and you can hear that in the singer’s voice texture. It also mentions “falling asleep” in its lyrics, which may or may not be a subconscious way of telling your brain to fall asleep.
Have a listen 🙂
Ya….can’t really go into much detail with this challenge but, well, you might just have to guess and fill in the blank yourself….
This is really tricky, and it’s very hard to think of a song for this challenge on command. So, since my time is limited and I’ve already been thinking for about 15 minutes, I’m choosing I song that I have known for a long time and have sung along to, and that I have probably sang the wrong words to AT SOME POINT.
I mean, let’s admit no one ever gets the words right the first few times they hear it. Sometimes it’s really difficult to tell what exactly the words and lyrics are.
So, here’s a real treat for any of those pop loving’, Disney channel, fellow fans that I have.
It’s Jesse McCartney’s “Beautiful Soul” from 2004.
Most of my playlists are genre or decade related, so this is a tough one. So, I’m just going to pick a random song that I think would ultimately be an overall crowd pleaser, and that I probably wouldn’t ever mind hearing, regardless of the theme or genre of a playlist.
That song is…..
99 Red Balloons – Nena
There is no exaggerating here…I know all the words to this song and it is one of my ALL-TIME favourites!! ❤
I Want You Back – Jackson 5
And for your added enjoyment, here’s a clip of the Jackson 5 on the Ed Sullivan Show and I love Michael’s purple hat!
Oh Hilary Duff, in all honesty you were probably the first pop-star / Disney channel actress that I became absolutely obsessed with. So, your music from the early 2000’s always reminds me of my teenage years. I’m pretty sure I watched the Lizzie McGuire movie on repeat at times, as well as episodes of the tv show. I used to wake up early on the weekend just to catch episodes on Family Channel!
So, this song definitely reminds me of my teenage years (the earlier ones mostly, like 13-15 before I tried to kid myself into loving rock only and forgetting pop music.
Here is Why Not – Hilary Duff
Alright, no judgements please but this song is my most played in the legitimate, iTunes verified, Hip-Hop/Rap category.
Honestly, I love it and it is one that I never skip when my iPod plays it on shuffle. Oh Nelly 🙂
Here’s “Hey Porsche” by Nelly, from his 2013 album, M.O.
