Sunday Stealing: Music, Music, Music!

Howdy, folks. Welcome back! Look at me, an early bird. I'm a Wild Card; you never know if I'll be early, late, or not show up at all.

But who cares? Let's get started. Link up here if you want to play along!

Says hostess Bev: "I really like music and so I stole this from a blog called The Green Hearth, who says that some of these are 'f*ing hard.'  And they are, but I thought they were fun.  Let's give it a try."

"Tears in Heaven," by Eric Clapton... it's about his son, Conor, who fell from the 53rd floor of a NYC apartment building in 1991. We played it at our son's memorial service. I can't hear it now without getting choked up.

10: A song that you never get tired of:

My current obsession is "Praying," by Kesha. I can't get enough of it. And good for her!

"Time of My Life," from the movie Dirty Dancing, originally sung by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.

16: A song from the year that you were born:

Image result for You're My Best Friend by Queen

"You're My Best Friend," by Queen... When I originally did the "Okay, Google" thing to ask which songs came out in 1976, I was excited to see "Bohemian Rhapsody" on the list. However, that was a boo-boo, because Rhapsody was actually released in 1975. What the what? Such tomfoolery!

17: A song that makes you think about [my] life:

"Daddy," by Jewel... I sing it to myself a lot lately. I don't know why... or maybe I do. Go ahead, listen to the lyrics, and maybe you'll see why I'm torn. It's not exactly a positive, uplifting song, just so's ya know.

18: A song that you think everybody should listen to:

Image result for Bonnie Raitt

"I Can't Make You Love Me," by Bonnie Raitt... Song of my college years in the mid '90s!

19: A song by a band you wish were still together:

Image result for smells like teen spirit

"Smells Like Teen Spirit," by Nirvana... though they're no longer together for obvious reasons, eh?

20: A song by an artist no longer living:

Image result for greatest love of all by whitney houston

"The Greatest Love of All," by Whitney Houston... I used to sing the hell out of this song when I was a kid. And a young adult. And yesterday... ;)

21: A song that breaks your heart:

Image result for babyface

"The Day (That You Gave Me a Son)," by Babyface... we played this and the songs in #9 and the first one in #22 at our son Robby's memorial service. The three of them are what I play in series when I really need a good cry.

22: A song by an artist with a voice that you love:

Image result for josh groban

Oh gosh, anything sung by Josh Groban, but especially "To Where You Are" or "Starry, Starry Night." Or wait, "The Promise." Literally anything!


Phew! Am I finished? That was a long one, but fun and worth it, IMO. Hope y'all enjoyed my song selections.

Happy Sunday to yas! ;)
