30 songs.

I found this challenge on Facebook and thought I'd try it out.  This list is not the original, but by Lucy 'spoon' House, and I like the categories better.

It's like the movie challenge that I stole from Adam.  You're supposed to do one each day, posting the youtube video link on your FB status, but I'm impatient so I'm doing it all in one shot.

You do it too.

day 01 - A song from the first album you ever brought: Crazy Little Thing Called Love - QueenI gotta be cool, relax, get hip, get on my tracks.  Take a backseat.  Hitch hike.  Take a long ride on my motor bike.  Till I'm ready.  Ready Freddie.  Crazy little thing called love...

day 02 - Your favourite single:  It's a Beautiful Life - Ace of Base.

day 29 – Your least favourite song: Having My Baby - Paul Anka. Oh lordy, this song makes my ears bleed.

day 30 – Your favourite song of all time:  I don't have a favourite.  I don't want the other songs to feel bad.


  1. Hah, love some of the choices and comments, especially the Paul Anka one...

    Tell me - am I the only person who truly hates "Empire State of Mind" by Elicia Keys?

  2. oo oo oo! Another one I can do! I love it.

    Some of your choices are quite revealing, others... less surprising. ;-)

  3. Hello there, we are clearly twins. Except that I'm old and Ukrainian. But we have twin music genes. I want to know more of the songs that you never get sick of hearing. Here's one of mine: So Alive, by Love and Rockets. I know, right?

  4. Man, you have some weird choices there!
    To each her own...

    But really, Futurama over the Barney Miller theme? I think that means you have to stop calling yourself a bassist. :-)

    And whenever someone mentions Having My Baby as a detestable song (OK, it is) I like to bring up that old gem by Musique. Fast forward to the 60 second mark for the highlight. I was going to call it the climax, but that would sound like a cheap pun.

  5. This will be fun! I'm a little behind but I started ittoday!

  6. This will be fun! I starting a little late but I'm joining in!
