30 Days + Music = Challenge!

Alright, so i may be a little late jumping on this bandwagon but after discovering that the very funky Tutu Ames is doing a 50 day music challenge i thought " hey, thats something i'd like to get in on! " .... except that i dont think i could quite keep it up for 50 days, so i decided to go with the 30 Day Music Challenge thats being touted on Facebook ( search it... its got its own page ). I planned on starting yesterday except that i went roadtripping for the day with my parents and Flynn to a beautiful, HUGE, manicured garden ( pics and post to come! ) so today i'll be catching up with the prompts for days one and two of the challenge.

Day One: What is your favourite song right now?
Cue " Party Rock Anthem " by LMFAO -
I am just loving this song right now - it makes me wana dance, and the film clip is a total cack up! Its not a song where you have to think about the lyrics, you just listen to the beat and go with it. Its fun, and right now, fun is what i'm into...

Day Two: Song that was #1 when you were born?
Ok, when i Googled this i got some conflicting results for the week of my birth, so i went with the song that was #1 the year i was born...1984 -

I have to admit, seeing as this was released the year i was born, i hadnt really heard the original version until i heard - and loved - the remixed version used in Baz Luhrmans " Romeo and Juliet ". But, thanks to Baz, i love this one too - Prince is definately funky, and kind of edgy and just a little bit " What the?! " ... which are all the things which make this song great...

So, lets consider my blog a jukebox of my personal favourites for the next month. There will be other posts too, of course, and maybe more than one a day sometimes. If you feel like playing along, go check out the page on Facebook and getting your playlist happening!
*Edit* A couple of people mentioned they love " Purple Rain "...but that was the wrong link! It was supposed to be a video for " When Doves Cry " which means that my " Romeo and Juliet " reference now makes sense!


  1. I've saw this on Facebook too (although think it originated in the blogosphere as I saw people doing it months ago) but I was recently thinking i might do it too. I probably would do it in a couple of parts though rather than only one a day... I just don't have the patience or attention span!

    I LOVE Purple Rain. I'm off to find out what was number one when I was born. I have a feeling it was the Police for some reason... two seconds...

    Yup, it was Message in a Bottle. And. funnily enough, on my 1st birthday, it was Don't Stand So Close To Me. That certainly explains why I like The Police.

  2. Oooo...This looks fun. I think I'm going to do this starting tomorrow!

  3. Seeing that Purple Rain song just cracked me up. I was never a big Prince fan, but there are many memories attached to a lot of his songs for me.

    I love LMFAO. Can't even tell you why! Must be the dance thing. x
