The 30 Song Challenge

We’re not sticking by the whole theory of “just 30 songs” very well, now are we?

Oh well. It’s more fun this way.

I was unofficially tagged by Lalaithiel and Victoria. So, thanks guys!

Here’s the song quiz-y thing.

 

Your favorite song

It changes quite frequently. But at the moment I like More of You (Colton Dixon), Flaming Red Hair (Howard Shore) (discovered yesterday, actually) and A Wink and a Smile (Harry Connick Jr.).

 

Your least favorite song

Matthew and Son (Cat Stevens)

Don’t ask.

The Many and the Few (The Klezmatics). This one is just… strange. I like the message and all, but in the words of my dad: “It sounds like a drunk Irish singing competition”.

Syllables, guys. They’re kind of important.

 

 

A song that makes you happy

La Da Dee (Cody Simpson), Everything is Awesome and Test Drive

 

A song that makes you sad

Dust in the Wind (Kansas) and Words Remain (Josh Garrels).

 

A song that reminds you of someone

It’s Not Over Yet (For King & Country) and That’s Amore (Dean Martin)

The second was the result of the most awesome lip sinc ever. XD

 

A song that reminds you of somewhere

Different Drum (Blanca), Minnie the Moocher (Cab Calloway) and Stagger Lee (Huey Lewis)

 

A song that reminds you of a certain event

Nothing Can Stop Me Now (Mark Holman) and Speak Life (TobyMac)

 

A song that you know all the words to

It’s actually more rare when I don’t know all the words to a song…

Let’s see… Fight Another Day. Because I haven’t done any Addison Road songs yet.

 

A song that you can dance to

Most proficiently? I’m On My Way (The Proclaimers)

 

A song that makes you fall asleep

Beethoven’s 5 Secrets (The Piano Guys)

It doesn’t make me fall asleep, though. Sheesh. It’s just nice and relaxing.

 

A song from your favorite band

I don’t really like a whole lot of bands, per say. So choosing a favorite would be strange. I like Kansas, kinda. So Chasing Shadows.

 

A song from a band you hate

I really have no clue. XP

 

A song that is a guilty pleasure

The Great Pretender (The Platters). It’s a little goofy and melodramatic, but I like it for some reason. 😛

 

A song that no one would expect you to love

This one took me a while.

I really like Behold The Lord High Executioner.

 

A song that describes you

See above song. No, I’m kidding. XP

Hmm… hard one. I’ve never really heard a song and gone “Oh, that’s so me.”

Maybe Roman and Alaina’s Last Forest?

Or I’ll just go without words. The Legend Spreads. I love that one. 🙂

 

A song that you used to love but now hate

Let It Go. I know Victoria said the same thing, but when this many people geek out over one song so much, it’s a bit of a turnoff for me. 😛

 

A song that you hear often on the radio

Overcomer (Mandisa)

 

A song that you wish you heard on the radio

Everything is Awesome. Just… for the commodity of it.

 

A song from your favorite album

Run Wild, Live Free, Love Strong (For King & Country). It’s the name of the song and the album. Ha.

 

A song that you listen to when you’re angry

Um… I never really stay angry long enough to listen to a song. And picking songs isn’t at the top of my priority list when I’m mad, really.

 

A song that you listen to when you’re sad

Hang On Little Tomato (Pink Martini)

 

A song that you listen to when you’re happy

All of Me (The Piano Guys)

Seriously, it’s a bit of a tradition now.

Oh, gosh. I’m happy. Quick where’s my iPod! I need to play my happy song!

 

A song that you want to play at your wedding

Life With You (The Proclaimers), All About Us (He is We) (<that video is great, by the way) aaaaand something ridiculous. I’ll think about it. 😛

 

A song that you want to play at your funeral

o_O I’ve never asked this question. Should I have?

 

A song that makes you laugh

Anything from Les Mis. Anything. Seriously, if everyone is dutifully cleaning the kitchen/doing schoolwork/making dinner and you turn on Les Mis, everything comes to a halt and everyone starts dramatically lip syncing whatever it is.

And Tit Willow from the Mikado. Because I saw an absolutely brilliant performance of it.

 

A song that you can play on an instrument

Thou Be My Vision (Kemper Crabb), Pineapple Rag, and Cantina Band. One for each of my instruments.

 

A song that you wish you could play

Maple Leaf Rag. Working on it, actually. I like ragtime.

 

A song in a foreign language that you like

Bum Bum (The Meshorerim Choir) and Baba Yetu (Christopher Tin)

 

A song from your childhood

Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla, Chickery Chick, Swingin’ On A Star and Der Fuehrer’s Face.

The last three as a result of a Stage Door Canteen tape that we had.

 

Your favorite song at this time last year

Dead Man’s Dance (Bradford Loomis)

 

I tag…

You.

Go. Do it.

Have fun with it!

Please comment!

    1. I’m glad to have been fun. 🙂 *bows dramatically*
      Yeah, especially with the knowledge that, within the context of the story, the whole point of the song is incorrect. I mean, that was like the LOW point in Elsa’s character arc, guys. Stop idolizing it.

    1. You should! It’s really fun. Especially looking around at everyone else’s. I’M FINDING SO MANY GOOD SONGS. I really liked Billy Boyd’s “The Last Goodbye” on Victoria’s. I haven’t even seen LotR and I was getting feels. And now I’m curious, too.
      Why was Pippin crying? He’s breaking my heart, even though it was like a five second clip.
      Same. XD there’s a lot of good Irish music, but that song… Really. I mean, if they put just a LITTLE more effort into the lyrics…

          1. Me either. I sorta-kinda want to someday. BUT THAT SONG. *loves it rather tearfully because it’s sad*
            Oh goodness. XD that’s a great mental image. Pippin, Cobalt and the Doctor, all duking it out with pillows on that Tardis. XDDD
            “The winner gets cake, guys!”
            *fighting escalates*

Any thoughts?
