Default OT: 30-Day Song Challenge (Day Twenty-Eight - A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty)

So, I started doing this on Facebook, and thought it was fun. Since there is nothing going on right now, I thought it might be kind of interesting to do it here. And since there is some really crappy stuff in the main forum, I thought this could do nothing but improve things (so mods, please leave it here).

Here's the way it works. Each day for thirty days, there will be a new song topic. You simply post your answer to that day's topic in this thread. I will post each new day's topic as an update in this post, as well as a new post in this thread.

A few general guidelines:

1) Try and stick with the topic of the day, so that the thread stays fairly organized.

2) If you must post about a previous day that you missed, at least label your post with the day and topic about which you're posting.

3) If possible, post a video with your song choice.

4) If possible, give a brief justification of the choice.

5) I realize that this is subjective, and some subjects might be hard to narrow down to one song. But narrow it down, anyway. If you must list more than one, just post one video, followed by a list of "Honorable Mentions" - with the song artist and title only.

Make sense? Here are the topics. Remember, I'll update this post with a new topic each day:

Day One - Your Favorite Song
Day Two - Your Least Favorite Song
Day Three - A Song the Makes You Happy!
Day Four - A Song that Makes you Sad
Day Five - A Song that Reminds You of Someone
Day Six - A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere
Day Seven - A Song that Reminds You of a Certain Event
Day Eight - A Song that You Know All the Words to
Day Nine - A Song that You Can Dance to
Day Ten - A Song that Makes You Fall Asleep
Day Eleven - A Song From Your Favorite Band
Day Twelve - A Song From a Band You Hate
Day Thirteen - A Song That is a Guilty Pleasure
Day Fourteen - A Song That No One Would Expect You to Love
Day Fifteen - A Song That Describes You
Day Sixteen - A Song That You Used to Love But Now Hate
Day Seventeen - A Song That Takes You Back to High School
Day Eighteen - A Song That You Wish You Heard on the Radio
Day Nineteen - A Song From Your Favorite Album
Day Twenty - A Song That You Listen to When You’re Angry
Day Twenty-One - A Song That You Listen to When You’re Happy
Day Twenty-Two - A Song That You Listen to When You’re Sad
Day Twenty-Three - A Song That Inspires You/Makes you Emotional
Day Twenty-Four - A Song That You Want Played at Your Funeral
Day Twenty-Five - A Song That Makes You Laugh
Day Twenty-Six - A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument
Day Twenty-Seven - A Song That You Wish You Could Play on an Instrument
Day Twenty-Eight - A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty

Day One - Your Favorite Song

This one is almost impossible, because I, like most people, have so many favorites. But I love Elvis Costello, and the lyrics of this song are beautiful. So, I chose this one.

I will probably have to wait for day 2. Too hard to pinpoint to a favorite song. Maybe something from Depeche Mode, Oingo Boingo, Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran or something I need an hour and really think about it.
I do have some suggestions for topics. Fav song to keep rewinding, best song during high school, fav summertime song, fav song to hear at a sporting event, fav song to get laid to (or to get it in motion), favorite song to drum on your steering wheel (and not caring if you look like a fool) and songs that should be played at a sporting event (which I also thought I would make a thread but never have).

Tough to pick a favorite, but when asked, Hey Jude is on the list.



...as is 'satisfaction'

Favorite song? Rough question.

Some of the lines in this are just so truthful, so I'll put it here:



"Don't confront me with my failures; I had not forgotten them."

I'll also have to wait until day 2... just too many good songs out there. And sorry... I don't know how to post video. Maybe someone can give me some pointers.

When you are looking at a video on YouTube, click "Share" below the video window. From there, click "Embed." Then highlight the text in the box that drops down, copy it, and paste it, as is, in a post on here. That should be all you need to do.

How about a contest where we get 30 days (or less) to actually write a song?

Then maybe DEATHSicle would finish the 1st song to be released off DEATHSicles 1st album!

Had a friend (girl) in high school that when we'd reached that point that the relationship was over (with whomever we were dating) we'd play that song and turn it it up when it hit:

"She said you’re like a disease without any cure
She said I’m so obsessed that I’m becoming a bore, oh no
Ah, you think you’re so pretty!"

Some good choices. Some strange choices. Some choices that are very hurtful for the Congressman from New York.

Tomorrow will be Least Favorite Songs. Don't post them yet - we're still on favorites. But you can be thinking about it. I actually put more thought into least favorite than I did favorite. It's so subjective, when you start thinking about all the options - genres, decades, B-Sides, etc.

A few of the categories are stupid; some are fairly repetitive; etc - so I need to think of things to change them up. broncocalijohn had some good suggestions earlier in the thread. If you have any ideas, let me know. Hopefully, the lockout will be over by the time we get through day 30, and we can start counting down to training camp.

As I mentioned earlier, don't hesitate to name songs as honorable mention for each of these categories. To keep it simple, don't post videos to all of them. But it's kind of cool to remember old songs/learn about new songs. I had totally forgotten that James song, for example.

I've known probably ten people who have died of ODs in my life. All but one or two of them were from Methadone - either for pain management, or for heroin addiction.

Anyway, I always thought Shannon Hoon seemed like a nice kid. What a waste of a life.
