The final day of the challenge is another bizarre theme – a song that reminds you of yourself. I literally cannot think of a song that does that. I have gone for a classic Take That song as it reminds me to keep humble.
So, what have I learned after doing the #30daysongchallenge? That I have an eclectic musical taste and that songs generally don’t carry much meaning to me. They give me memories but they don’t give me feelings. And most of all – that I just love music because it makes me happy and gives me energy!
I’m kind of cheating here. I am no Tammy Wynette fan, but I love this song and the link to her being an artist no longer living is just a way to get the song into the challenge.
Justified & Ancient is a classic. Its lyrics are inspired, but nonsense (they’re justified and they’re ancient and they drive an ice cream van). The original version is fab but I equally love the White Room Version.
Whatever is my favourite Oasis song and Oasis are the band that I wish were still together. The Oasis from the first three albums, the fun, couldn’t give a shit, rock band, not the overblown produced band they eventually became.
I don’t actually think they should get back together. I think the moment for Oasis has gone. But weren’t they amazing?! I consider myself lucky to have been a teenager at just the right time to experience the whole Oasis bandwagon!
I love this song. It’s an absolute banger. This was the first song I heard John Newman sing on and his voice is incredible. I think everyone should listen to this for no other reason than it is awesome.
At first I planned to choose the Cha Cha Slide for this one as it does move you forward and then cha cha to the side. But then I thought this was stupid.
Instead I’ve gone for The Power Of Love by Huey Lewis And The News. It’s a song from one of my favourite movies which features by favourite quote of all time: “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads,” from Back To The Future.
The quote works on various levels. In the movie, on face value, it means the Delorean no longer needs roads as it can fly. On a deeper level, it actually means that the future is not planned and mapped out on a road – the future is what you make it.
Also, it is a great song to drive to and, therefore, moves me forward that way too.
