30 day music blog, day 5

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

A lot of my friends have been posting this blog. I wasn’t going to join in because my biggest love music-wise is classical, especially opera, but TERESA159 said it would be interesting if I did it. It would be great if you decided to listen to some of my choices and broadened your horizons.

Here's how it goes. You post a song each day following the criteria for that day. Often I will be posting a choice of music that is not necessarily a song:

day 01 - your favorite song – “Dance of the Knights” from the ballet “Romeo & Juliet” by Prokofiev
day 02 - your least favorite song – The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars.
day 03 - a song that makes you happy – Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves.
day 04 - a song that makes you sad – “Higher Love” by Steve Winwood.

day 05 - a song that reminds you of someone – “Kiss Today Goodbye” from the show A Chorus Line. When I went to visit my dying grandmother in the hospital she was completely unresponsive. I sang this song to her, which was her favorite, and although she didn’t open her eyes, she mouthed the words along with me.

Still to come:

day 06 - a song that reminds you of somewhere
day 07 - a song that reminds you of a certain event
day 08 - a song that you know all the words to
day 09 - a song that you can dance to --
day 10 - a song that makes you fall asleep
day 11 - a song from your favorite band
day 12 - a song from a band you hate
day 13 - a song that is a guilty pleasure
day 14 - a song that no one would expect you to love
day 15 - a song that describes you –
day 16 - a song that you used to love but now hate –
day 17 - a song that you hear often on the radio –
day 18 - a song that you wish you heard on the radio
day 19 - a song from your favorite album
day 20 - a song that you listen to when you’re angry
day 21 - a song that you listen to when you’re happy
day 22 - a song that you listen to when you’re sad
day 23 - a song that you want to play at your wedding –
day 24 - a song that you want played at your funeral
day 25 - a song that makes you laugh –
day 26 - a song that you can play on an instrument
day 27 - a song that you wish you could play
day 28 - a song that makes you feel guilty
day 29 - a song from your childhood
day 30 - your favorite song at this time last year

    What a great memory! And how cool of you to sing her the song because you knew it would reach her. I very much believe that even when people are dying and they are out of it like that, that we who know and love them can do things to help them relax and go. My dad fought going, so in the hospice I leaned over and told him right in his ear so he'd be sure to hear me that Hey Dad, it's Teresa, we're all here and we all want you to go away from us and go find Mom. She's looking for you, go find her. He did, within the next hour. Otherwise I think people fight to hold on and what for?

    I like A Chorus Line. This is not one my mom had the album to but I do know it, good story, good music. Your grandma had good taste.
