30 Day Song Challenge – Day 30: Your Favorite Song At This Time Last Year

Will you look at that? It’s only took me about 3 months, but I finished the 30 day song challenge. Way to go, Josh!

Anyway, I know this song was on my iTunes quite a bit at this time last year. Not only had I only discovered Laura a few months earlier, but it was a tune that seemed to encapsulate much of how I was feeling about my love life up until that point. I had too many ghosts following me around and I related. Still a great song, but thank God I’m no longer at that place.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 29: A Song From Your Childhood

Although I wouldn’t touch a Duran Duran album to save my life these days, they had quite an influence on young Josh. So with that…here’s Hungry Like The Wolf.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 28: A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty

I frankly thought today’s submission idea was really…odd…to say the least. I suppose it’s probably a good thing I can’t immediately think of a song that makes me feel guilty. So instead I threw the work guilty into and regretful came up as a synonym. I then thought, “Hey, Regret from New Order is one of my favorite songs” so there you go, stream of consciousness, thanks for the help. Submission chosen.

New Order - Regret

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 25 - Day 27: A Song That You Wish You Could Play

As a general rule I feel this way about the Nick Drake catalog, as I love his composition and the sounds he was able to get via alternate/open tunings and the like. So the following is merely one of many but a tune I’ve specifically thought of in this way before.

Nick Drake – Three Hours

Day 24 - A Song That You Want To Play At Your Funeral

I think that whenever I take a dirt nap I’ll want “Come Thou Font of Every Blessing” to play at my funeral. And I *do* mean the Sufjan Steven’s version, not just the traditional arrangement. In fact, if you can book Sufjan, that would be swell. Anyway, The Lord has been the fount of every blessing in my life, and the longer I live I see this evidenced so it only seems appropriate.
