Day 7 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge-My Five Favorite Songs

My Five Favorite Songs

I have to pick just five? That's nearly impossible!!! That's crazy! Do you know how many songs I have on my IPod? It's 8 GBs!!

Ok here goes nothing:

1) Anything Anything-Dramarama

This song clearly represents a time in my life. A somewhat carefree time when all was fun and light and a little aggressive. That was all wasn't real but I was danged determined to pretend that everything was all right and that I wasn't lost and foundering. I was having fun! I was I was I was!!! I do appreciate the Buck Cherry version as well

2) Time After Time-Any Cindy Lauper version

In my humble opinion...which matters not a whit, this is the best song ever written. It makes me the real, authentic way that so few songs do anymore. It's a real song that really matters and although it's been covered a bazillion times I think it doesn't get the credit it deserves.

3) Bella's Lullaby-Carter Burwell

I know..I's on the Twilight soundtrack. But this song I think is so lovely. It makes me want to play piano again. It's haunting and has a wonderful internal energy to it that swells my spirit. Listening to this song is almost a spiritual experience for me.

4) Rhiannon-Fleetwood Mac

Do I even need to justify this one? It's Stevie for heavens sake! I've never been a huge Fleetwood Mac fan growing up but in my forties some of the classics have grown on me. That rasp though!

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night and
Wouldn't you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight and
Who will be her lover?
All your life you've never seen
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
She is like a cat in the dark and then
She is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark and when
The sky is starless
All your life you've never seen
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

5) The Thunder Rolls-Garth Brooks

This song is such a good quiet brooding song. It's the best crescendo song I can think of with a huge build and an amazing delivery. I realize sometimes that I forget to breathe during it and it leaves me gasping for air a bit. I'm realizing that this is the only "country" song on the list despite the fact that I generally listen to country music these days...Interesting?!?
