30 Day Song Challenge: Day 30

Your favorite song at this time last year

I could not for the life of me think of what my favorite song was last year but I do know I was obsessed with this song for a while. Love it.

Poker Face- Glee Version - Not so much Lady Gaga's

YAY. I did it. Last day. Last song. Hope you had as much fun as I did!

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 29

A song from your childhood

I can remember riding the bus to school listening to this song. I had no idea the music video was so awesome.

Waterfalls- TLC

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 28

A random song on itunes

I didn't like whatever this category was (I can't remember what it was) so I changed it. I love to play this little game on itunes where I think of a category like "my day today" or "my love life" and then I push shuffle on my itunes and the song that comes up is the song for that category. I think it is fun, really fun actually. I have been doing it for years. So that is where this post came from. I didn't pick category before pushing shuffle, so you can come up with what you think it should be!

Blue Ridge Mountains- Fleet Foxes

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 27

A song you wish you could play

This one is pretty much self explanatory. It is beautiful and lovely and I wish I had mad piano skills.

Claire de Lune - Claude Debussy

sick sick sick

I was doing a great job of blogging everyday. 
Then I got sick. 
Really really sick.
It sucked. 
It still kinda sucks. 
I just want to be better. 
Did I mention it is also finals week. 
But I am going to live. 
Also I am going to finish my 30 day song challenge. 


30 Day Song Challenge: Day 26

A song you can play on an instrument.

I have to be completely honest. I was going to put Walkie Talkie Man by Steriogram, because at one time in my life I learned how to play the chorus on the guitar, but if you asked me to play it now I don't think I could really do it. So in reality I really only know how to play Heart and Soul and Chopsticks on the piano. Just like everyone else. The saddest part is I just learned how to play chopsticks a few weeks ago because as a kid my mom told us we could never play that song in her house. Probably for a good reason because when I learned it,( while my mom was out and I kindly taught it to Niques and Dezi, Your welcome mom) we played it over and over and over until even I was getting a little sick of it.

Heart and Soul and Chopsticks in the best rendition ever imagined.


30 Day Song Challenge: Day 25

A song that makes you laugh.

Without fail every time I hear this song I laugh, not because the song is funny but because I think of one night in the dorms. And what an epic night it was. Instead of trying to describe it to you, I thought I would show you why this song makes me laugh.
Ladies and Gentlemen, for the first time, may I introduce to you the beautiful Natalie, and the charming Dannielle in their rendition of COMING CLEAN.

Coming Clean- Hilary Duff


30 Day Song Challenge: Day 24

A song you would play at your funeral.

This may sound extremely morbid and slightly disturbing, but I have actually put a lot of thought into my funeral lately.
Thought  1: I don't want to be buried. I don't like to be in confined spaces, I have this fear of waking up inside of the grave and I love the idea of being set free to fly in the wind (cremation of course, how creepy would it be to send a dead body out into the wide open only to have it come crashing down).
Thought 2: Instead of a boring old funeral where people cry and morn my death I want to have a celebration gallery featuring everything I have created throughout my life. Maybe not Everything, but all of the good stuff!

Which leads me to the song of the day, If all of these wishes come true than this song must be played at my funeral/celebration/gallery/launching party:

I Feel Good- James Brown

5 Years Ago Today.

Five years ago today, 6.6.6, I graduated from high school. 
After Derek's graduation last week I have been inspired, and I have been doing a lot of reminiscing!!

It was fantastic. The best part is I am still friends with all of these girls!

EVEN BETTER: In 5 months I will will graduating from BYU! 
(I get to parade in the cap and gown in 2 months! wee) 
It only took me 5 years to complete my bachelors, and with how many times I switched my major I think that is just peachy. Let the countdown to Graduation begin. 


30 Day Song Challenge: Day 23

A song you want to play at your wedding.

I don't know what else needs to be said about this song except this.

Frank Sinatra.

The Way You Look Tonight- Frank Sinatra.


30 Day Song Challenge: Day 22

A song you listen to when you are sad.

Like I have said before I don't have a depressing playlist generally but I do have certian songs for different sad things. This is a general "I am kinda sad today" song. I think it is really pretty. I really like pretty sounding songs when I am sad. Actually I like pretty sounding songs all the time. I also love when artists have a song that is completely different from the rest of their songs. Like this little number from Mika. Who knew?

Mika- Any Other World

Procrastination can be fun

End of the term here. 
You know what that means, Time to finally do those projects and papers I have been procrastinating all term. Since I had to spend the whole day reading and researching I thought I would at least try and enjoy the summer weather that has finally arrived. 
My favorite study spot was taken, so I explored until I found this little spot by the river. 
What lovely little spot to study without distractions. 
Ok, with less distractions. 

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 21

A song you listen to when you are happy.

Things that are happy- classic old songs- attractive men dancing- JGL- references to Star Wars-
This song is so happy, and even more fun to listen to when you feel just like this....

You Make My Dreams Come True - Hall and Oates


30 Day Song Challenge: Day 20

A song you listen to when you are angry-

I powerful music when I am angry, something that will fuel my passion. Muse has gotten me through plenty of angry times.

You want to know what I am not angry about right now. Finding this version of the song. I think it is even better. Thank you Mr. Roy Burns for doing this, and thank you YouTube for putting this as the first thing that comes up when searching: Muse Apocalypse Please official video.

Apocalypse Please - Muse


30 Day Song Challenge: Day 19

A song from your favorite album

Instead of strait up favorite I though of this as most played album. I couldn't think of anything (besides maybe Moulin Rouge) that I play more than Wicked. While listening you can't help but belt out the songs at loud as you can, doing the I am singing like a star hand motions and pretend you are a Broadway star. Ya, Ok, I am that girl on the freeway...
I could probably pick any song from this album and be happy with it but what is better than a love song.

As Long as Your Mine - Wicked
