I’ve been doing this list on Facebook for the last 4 days. If you want to as well, copy and paste the text below.
The idea is to share a little bit about yourself by choosing one song a day, for 30 days. Introspection is required, but it sounds like fun. Looking at the list, I can tell that some songs will be easy to choose, while others will require a little bit of thought. See the list below and if you’re up to the challenge, let me know in the comments below. Let the sharing begin!

My first 4 songs are:
- Rush – Lock and Key
- Los del Rio – The Macarena (that song just pisses me off … I don’t know why, but it gets under my skin and burrows like a tapeworm ulcer and festers until my mind erupts in pustules of putrid loathing and disgust)
- The Weepies – Be My Honeypie. You cannot listen to that song and not smile uncontrollably. It’s a beautiful feeling!
- Ugly Kid Joe’s version of “Cat’s in the Cradle. I swear, I want to be the best parent ever, but this song … Jumping Jehosephat on a hot tin roof sundae. I can’t make it through without having to fight the urge to bawl uncontrollably. Maybe it’s because I never had a good, solid father figure growing up, and now that I’m in charge of two kids, it scares the squishy shit out of me because I do not want them to go through what I went through. Don’t get me wrong–my mom was as saintly and wonderful as it gets, and God bless my step dad’s heart … he tried, but how do you dive in with a 14 year old and a 10 year old? That would be so mind-bendingly insane to try to adjust to! I give him credit for trying, but … I don’t know. Gah.
Anyway, there’s the list so far. It’s a fun list!
