    Day 15. If Your Life Had A Theme Song What Would It Be

    Another tough one. At one point is my life I would have picked this: But I'm older and more mature now so I think I've settled into this.  It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.  John WoodenI'm feeling a little John Wooden today

    Day 14. The Song That Best Describes You

    Damn ... I have no friggin clue. I've thought about this one for a while and .... nothing. I even googled a quiz to help you pick a song that defines you (there are actually two of them out there if you can believe it) and came up with **** for answers. I guess .... I guess...

    Day 13. The Most Underrated Band/Artist Ever

    I second girly on her citing the Kinks as incredibly underrated. Punk and Heavy Metal can draw a line directly back to the Kinks, yet they never received the accolades the Stones or Beatles received.I'll add another to the list of underrated bands based on their influence. This...

    Day 8. Name 3 Songs You Had/Want Played At Your Wedding

    I wasn't sure which way to go with this one other than not going with three played at my wedding. We were married many years ago; were kids just out of college. Not having much of a budget for a wedding, we had maybe the worst wedding band ever. In my mind they played...

    Day 5. A Band/Artist That You Have Loved But Grew To Dislike

    He went from Every Picture Tells a STory, an all-time album: To acceptable, if a little shmaltzy ballads: To this crap: And now he's a standards torch singer lounge rat?  Yup, Rod Stewart fits this catagory.

    Day 6. A Band/Artist That You Hated But Grew To Love

    Like girlmcgirly I nearly always will know straight away whether I like a band or not. But there is one exception to that, The Ting Tings. I first heard their song "That's Not My Name" when my niece had it on her phone, and I dismissed it as being "pop rubbish" (I am a fan of...

    Day 6. A Band/Artist That You Hated But Grew To Love

    based on Girly's comment below I'm redoing this one.  I'll leave my original answer below but replace it with a better one. I learned a lot about music from my first college roommate.  My taste had improved in the year leading up to my freshman year.  I've told the story of...

    R. I. P. Scoobs

    Too morbid? *shrug* I've thought about this. Of course I have. Here's what I would like to do but don't know if I ever will. I want to practice my guitar and get good enough that I could actually record some stuff and have it played. Yes. I want to play guitar and sing at my own...

    Another tough one ... you're killing me girly. Crazy, my number 1 pick, has already been taken so Madness seems like a good substitute. Plus, this is a great video to boot. The best pure R & R song of this millenium is .....   Should include a ballad in the mix ... show some...

    Day 9. Best Song The Year You Graduated

    I needed a little help with this one; I graduated in 1978 (I assume we're talking HS) and remembering that far back these days is no easy task. So I googled "top hits 1978" and ended up at the Billboard 100 chart for the year. What I saw frightened me. It was a sea of Gibbs (Andy...

    Thanks for creating a new challenge girly. I got lots of songs to share left in me.I've known about this band for the past year or so. Have had the chance to see them live a few times. Honestly, they expand their playlist a bit they may contend someday in the best live band...

    Day 12. The Most Overrated Band/Artist Ever

    I'm going to try to seperate bands that I don't like ... like Rush ... from this catagory. I don't like them a bit but that doesn't mean they are overrated. Neil Peart alone probably keeps them from that. So I picked a band that i actually like. That said, how they ever became...

    An interesting challenge! For some reason I have often thought that "A Better Man" by Thunder would be a good song for this occasion. As for the other 2 songs, well I needed to think about those....and the mischievous thought popped into my head of "Highway To Hell" by AC/DC...
