30 Days of Music – Day 1: Name your favorite song
Wow. Okay, so I have to admit here that I listen to different music daily. It is so dependent on my mood, and what I am doing; where I am going. At the end of a long day, I sometimes don’t listen to anything if I am stressed or frustrated. On the contrary, I will listen to anything “Prince” when I am in a good mood. He amps me up.
That being said – I leaned on my iPod to tell me what I have been listening to lately (yes… I am a convert to Apple nation, and I couldn’t be happier – but don’t worry. I’m still me inside). And right now, the most played song is “Someone Like You” be Adele.
I love this song – I do. For several reasons:
- It gives me an opportunity to pretend I am a real singer. I love karaoke. I love Sing Star or whatever game that is on Playstation. I love singing with people. I love Sing Sing. And while I am no Adele, I love getting the opportunity to try my hand at something so beautiful.
- Her voice is stunning. Really. She has a way with music and her voice that floors me.
- There is one part that I love singing, and it’s the ear worm that gets stuck in my head: “I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited but I couldn’t stay away; I couldn’t fight it. I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded that for me, it isn’t over.” That whole thing said in *almost* one breath. Amazing. And the words are kind of poignant, too.
- The music is glorious. The syncopation that jazzy, bluesy feel. I love it. I love her whole album (even if it is a little sad).
I’ll mention her again, because there is another song that fits into this 30 days of music thing. But for me, right now, today, as I type this, that is my favorite.
