The 30 day song challenge

A lot of the blog memes and challenges pass me by, but occasionally there is one that catches my eye and the 30 Day Song Challenge is one of those. I’m not sure where it’s origins lie, but I have seen it posted by a few friends, on Facebook, on blogs. Most recently, Lukeh took up the challenge with the genius idea of using Posterous so as not to spam his main blog.

Seeing him post such interesting choices and the reasons behind it made me want to have a go, despite the fact that I have looked at the list a couple of times before and got stuck. They’re quite hard!

  • Day 1 – Your favourite song
  • Day 2 – Your least favourite song
  • Day 3 – A song that makes you happy
  • Day 4 – A song that makes you sad
  • Day 5 – A song that reminds you of someone
  • Day 6 – A song that reminds of you of somewhere
  • Day 7 – A song that reminds you of a certain event
  • Day 8 – A song that you know all the words to
  • Day 9 – A song that you can dance to
  • Day 10 – A song that makes you fall asleep
  • Day 11 – A song from your favourite 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 favourite 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 to play 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 favourite song at this time last year

Personally, I think they’ve started backwards. All the good ones are at the top, and surely your favourite song of all time should be the culmination of all your hard work and a reward for everyone who’s stuck with you?

Nevertheless, I can think of answers to ten of them, and with only a third of the list complete, I’m in no position to give it a go. However, I’m posting it here in the hopes it may give me the motivation to think up some more, or perhaps so I can refer back to it in the future when I have heard some more songs.
