30 Day Song Challenge


My buddy, Matt posted a 30 day song challenge on Facebook.  Each day consists of a different “type” of song.  The idea is to post one song for each suggested daily theme.  As someone who believes that music is one of life’s most important things, and as someone who has worked with music for 30 years professionally, this opens up a huge door!

What will follow over the next few blogs will be either 1) music lists 2) a combination of one or more of the suggestions from Matt’s post, and/or 3) stories about the songs listed.  I encourage reader participation on some of these, because I always love to hear about other people’s tastes in music, too!

Day 1:  A Song You Like With a Color in the Title:

For today’s challenge – I have made a list.  I tried to think of as many color songs as I could (keep in mind these are, for the most part, songs I like) and made the following list.  I could probably go into detail of why I like each song, or what I like about each one, but because the list is a long one, I will leave it in list form.
