I seriously don’t know where the week has gone. Time flies so quickly around here, so here I find myself doing a catch up on the 30 Day Music Challenge. I have been updating the Spotify playlist as I’ve been going along so click here if you would like to listen: 30 Day music challenge
Day 14: A song that you would love played at your wedding
The creator of this list clearly thought none of us old married people would do this challenge, oh well. The song that we did have played at our wedding for our first dance was God Only Knows by The Beach Boys. Our music tastes are like some huge Venn diagram with only a handful of similarities in the middle. His circle is full of “too cool for school” bands that get played on student radio. Mine is pop, grunge and rock. There in the middle The Beach Boys and several other classic acts sit nicely so it seemed the obvious choice for our first dance nearly 12 years ago.
Day 15: A song that is a cover by another artist
I do love a good cover. I’ve discussed this on Twitter before and one day we even came up with a collaborative playlist (feel free to add to it) Cover Songs. But for the purpose of the music challenge I have chosen Bridge Over Troubled Water by Elvis Presley. Only The King could make a cover better than the original really.
Day 16: One of your favourite classical songs
I’m not a big listener of classical music but I do like to have it on in the background if I am working. It’s a lot easier to concentrate when there are no lyrics. For day 16 I am going to have to choose Sergei Prokofiev’s Montagues and Capulets. I have used this while teaching Romeo and Juliet in the classroom and then, more recently, a certain Mr Williams has used a sample of it on Party Like a Russian.
Day 17: A song that you would sing a duet with on karaoke
I’m a bit confused by this one. Does it mean your favourite karaoke song or favourite karaoke duet song, because I have no issue standing to do karaoke by myself!! So to save any confusion, if I’m doing it by myself it’s Never Ever – All Saints…but a duet to do at karaoke has to be Islands In The Stream by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, after all this playlist needs some country on it.
