day 30 - your favorite song at this time last year

Likely still The Lions roar by The Hush Sound.
Sorry for the sound quality, but this is best performance I can find out of a limited collection. It really is quite awesome.

day 29 - a song from your childhood

Baby Baluga by Raffi. I remember my dad singing this to me all the time when I was little. Or maybe he played the tape. Or both. We had/have a Raffi music book and I remember opening it up and trying to sing the songs or play them on my cheap, tiny, battery-powered, whiny piano. I think it was a Christmas book. I remember a page's illustration.

day 28 - a song that makes you feel guilty
How should I know? I'd rather not knowingly remember a song like that.



RAFFI CHRISTMAS. Oh, indoctrination of Santa Claus. Listen for the tone-deaf child. Poor Raffi.

day 27 - a song that you wish you could play

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, First movement. Alas, it gives my right hand arthritis. Having a double jointed thumb isn't always fun.

This guy is amazing. Check out the other videos of him. And his eyes remind me of my grandpa. Music eyes. =)

3 days of the music challenge

day 22 - a song that you listen to when you’re sad
day 23 - a song that you want to play at your wedding
day 24 - a song that you want to play at your funeral


All three of these fit with choral music, and I'm not sure why. Maybe these three categories are very emotional. Performing in a choir such as these is very technical, but the sound produced is a completely different matter. Here are some videos of random and well performed choral music, under the cut.

Anything that's by OK GO. Here's a fun one. I dare you to watch it without sound! Omg, I want to choreograph for them.
