30-Day Music Challenge: Days Thirteen and Fourteen



Sorry, minna-san! Fell off yesterday because I hurt myself in the stupidest way, but I am going to recover.

Day Thirteen calls on a song you like from the 70s.

That's a fun one!




Funkadelic--"(Not Just) Knee Deep".
Definitely not one I get tired of!


Day Fourteen wants "a song you'd love to be played at your wedding".
I got something for that:






Hedwig's Theme.

Because of course I would.

30-Day Music Challenge: Day Twelve




So Day Twelve calls for a song from my preteen years.

Like I did in a previous music challenge, I'm gonna keep you guessing when that was, because music from various decades has been prevalent in my life since conception, LOL.




NuShooz-- "Point Of No Return".



Michael Jackson-- "Rock With You".




Nirvana-- "In Bloom".




Run-DMC--"King Of Rock".

30-Day Music Challenge: Day Eleven



Wow--actually got to Day Eleven. Yay, and stuff!

Today: a song you never get tired of.

This is pretty easy...




Mystery Skulls-- "Ghost".

I tend to repeat this one a lot when it comes up on my iPod.

30-Day Music Challenge: Day Ten



Hey ya...
So today is "a song that makes you sad".

Huh.

I hate that I'm drawing a blank immediately, because I'm quite sure there's a few of these. But this also may be impaired by the technique I mentioned earlier in this challenge.

Ooh. I got one...and I remembered because I just went to her show recently:






Janet Jackson-- "Come Back To Me".

This is one of the songs I haven't done the technique with, apparently. I loved this but it used to make me cry quite a bit. It's a beautiful video, but I identified with the song a bit too much. Hearing it again after so long kind of kicked me in the gut, LOL. I was already emotional anyway because GODDESS JANET DAMITA JO FXCKING JACKSON, so it was okay. (^_^)

30-Day Music Challenge: Day Nine



Hey, minna-san. It's snowing over here by Tha Cat Lair, so we're all trying to keep cozy and warm and stuff.

Today's prompt is asking for a song that makes you happy.

I can think of a song that perks up mah mood...




New Order--"Bizarre Love Triangle".

30-Day Music Challenge: Day Eight




Here we are at Day Eight, GNOtaku...

Srsly? "A song about drugs or alcohol"?

Of course, I'm drawing a blank...

I think I have one.




The Cure--"Icing Sugar"

Pretty sure this is involving cocaine. It was the 80s, after all.

30-Day Music Challenge: Day Seven




Pretty happy I've gone a week without falling off of this, LOL

So now it's "a song to drive to".

Fun Fact: I... don't drive. I really should, though.

I can think of some rides I have taken where certain songs have just felt good.

Here's one.




Metallica-- "Dyers Eve".

I legit had a copy of this on cassette and wore it entirely out (I still have it somewhere). Despite that, I never learned/remembered all the lyrics to everything but there were always lines that stuck out. Listening to "...And Justice For All" has always been about the visceral feelings the music invoked, punctuated by the lyrics. Just the way the first track kicks in is everything. I used to back it up just to hear the chords again and again.

Metallica has always felt like classical to me, the way it was arranged. Maybe that's part of why I could appreciate their earlier stuff.
Has Vitamin String Quartet done this album? They really should.
(They've done a tribute. Okay. Close enough.)
