Here i go again...


Today is back to day 1 on a blog challenge, but this time it's all about music... And like my dear Bob Marley once said (and sang)

"One good thing about music, when it hits you... you feel no pain"

Now, the very first day of this challenge calls for- Your favorite song.

Well, that's a difficult one for me, as I have explained many things before, I am not a person of absolutes... meaning I don't really have one favorite of anything (well, perhaps I have a favorite person,  my wonderful husband!).

So, I don't think I have a absolute favorite color, food, clothes and other things... I like variety and things in my life are in constant change.

In my life I go through different phases and some times I can find something very appealing and others I am in the mood for something different.

And that's why today's song challenge is kind of difficult, but if I was to choose a favorite song, I guess here are my top 3.

1. Change by Mind Melon. 

The very first time I ever heard this song I was going to high school in Attica, NY. During English class everybody was supposed to bring a song, play it and then analyze the metaphors and similes. Somebody brought this song... well, from the first time I loved the lyrics and music and it's been one my favorite songs since then. 

Unfortunately Blind Melon's main vocals and leader (Shannon Hoon- the "golden" guy in the video) died of a overdose back in 1995. RIP Shannon, you still live among us with your music.

2. My next is no other that Mr. Robert Nesta Marley who is BY FAR my favorite singer/songwriter (well, I guess I do have a favorite singer).

Redemption Songs by Bob Marley and the Wailers.

This song is very special and with a very deep message, a must hear!


3. And the spot for #3 is another song I love, because of the awesome guitar, the rhythm and even the video is very cool.

"Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits.


So, yeah I guess those 3 would be my choices... It's kind of unfortunate that 2 of the 3 singers are already gone, but at least they left a good legacy with their music.

RIP Bob & Shannon, may you both be jamming together in Heaven!

Have a great day!!!

I love that Money For Nothing song, I remember when it first came out, back when MTV was cool.
Good luck with the challenge!
