30 Days About Me (Day 1)

Favorite Song...


Here we go, this is me attempting to get back into blogging. It has been quite a long time since I was a regular visitor here at Infectious Chatter. So day 1 is favorite song. This is probably the hardest question someone could ask me. If you know me personally you know that I am one of the most indecisive people on the planet. ("Do I want a white radio to match the kitchen or a brown one to blend with the walls? Or I could get a black one and be contemporary, hum, but maybe off white seems a bit more classic...") Yeah that's about how every decision in my life goes. 



How in the heck do I narrow down my favorite when I generally like almost every song I hear?

I grew up in a very musical family. My mom always sang in the church choir. My dad is a drummer, I remember dancing to his beats as a little girl in our garage. I have played the piano forever, and still turn to those lovely ivory keys whenever my heart needs a release. Music is like poetry, it heals, comforts and soothes whatever mood you may be in. 



Favorite artist is a little easier: Adele, Dixie Chicks, Evanescence, Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean, Jason Mraz, Lady Antebellum, Metallica, Mumford & Sons, Muse, OneRepublic, Regina Spektor and many many more. Yup I am all over the map! 



Of course there are the classic favorite songs that re-create a moment in time:
Our 1st dance as husband and wife Etta James "At Last"
Lyrics painted on the walls of my kids nursery Dixie Chicks "Godspeed" 



I tend to be drawn to slow melodic tunes. They're more fun and emotional to learn on the piano. Here are a few songs I have played over and over on my iPod: 


Jeff Buckley "Hallelujah" 
Adele "Someone Like You" 
Jason Mraz "Life is Wonderful"
Miranda Lambert "The House That Built Me" 


I guess I really didn't answer the question of what is my favorite song. Tomorrow it will be another set of songs I favor, but such is the way of music. It is ever changing and always just what you need at that moment.

I love DC's "Godspeed." It's always been a fave. How sweet to have printed the lyrics on a nursery wall too! Love that!

Yay for getting back to regular blogging too. :)

Stopping by from 30 Days about Me :) Too funny! My favorite song changes from day to day and hour to hour sometimes minute to minute :) And to make it worse 90% of the time I have no idea the name of the song! I have a song I am search for and all I know is the chorus! Thanks for making me feel normal :)

This made me sad as I had kind of forgotten about Jason Mraz. I hope he disappeared to record some amazing music!

Great list! "At Last" is such a classic! Reading your post jogged my mind and I thought of a couple of things I could add to my l list. Good to see you doing the 30 Day challenge!

It is just too hard to pick one song! We played "At Last" at my wedding too but I walked down the isle to it. It is such a beautiful song!

I'm with you--far too many to pick just one. I love all of your choices and have the same artists as favorites. Lovely to read your thoughts.

Great list. I'm also a big Miranda Lambert fan so I love The House That Built me as well.
