Day 15 - Song That I Used To Love But Now Hate

Hi, my name is Erin, and I was in love with Hanson in middle school. I wore out my cassette tape of their first album, and then begged my mom to buy me a new one. I even bought their second album. But then I grew up, and actually listened to the lyrics of this song. And then I heard an interview where the boys tried to explain what an "mmbop" is. And then I realized how crazy they are. I still love their vocal abilities, and their crazy harmonies, but I can only listen to this song with shame.

Day 14 - Song That Describes Me

Describe me? Um, Helloooo, I am female, color me complicated. But since the little was born, this song basically describes my daily existence. I heart JJ Heller, and her husband Dave is hi-larious. If you get a chance to go to one of her concerts, DO IT!!! This song, and baby smiles get me through the days when Cade is sick, the laudry pile is taller than I am, and I'm still in my jammies at 2:00 pm.

Day 13 - Song That No One Would Expect Me To Love

This one is hard, since the, like, 3 people who actually know me, know that I love all types of music. But this is one that even I was surprised to love. It all started when I heard Aaron Keyes bust out with this at New Years Conference a few years ago, rockin' the keytar. If it is possible for a person to be in love with an instrument, that would be mine.

Day 12 - Song That Is A Guilty Pleasure

I hate to love (or love to hate?) Amy Winehouse. The girl is a hot. mess. But I heart this song. When the folks on Glee busted out this song, I got so excited I almost peed. Enjoy.

Day 11 - Song From My Favorite Band

I heart Addison Road. The hubs got me tickets to one of their concerts for Valentine's Day, and it was a.ma.zing. I want Jenny to be my bestie. If I were a penguin, this would be my heartsong.

Day 10 - Song That Makes Me Fall Asleep

Pretty much any song by Coldplay. Don't get me wrong, this band is a.ma.zing live. But on the radio/iPod/etc., it loses all excitement.

Day 9 - Song That I Can Dance To

My staff and I learned this dance in college for one of our many dance battles. Of course, we totally rocked it. Even though it's been {cough}3{cough} years since then, I can still do the moves. I plan to teach them to Caden so he can be cool too.

Others include:
Cupid Shuffle
Cha Cha Slide

Day 8 - Song That I Know All The Words To

You all know I'm a freak, right? Well, one of my many random gifts is remembering lyrics. I can listen to a song just a couple times, and the words are stuck, permanently.

Other songs I know, include:

Ain't Goin' Down 'Till the Sun Comes Up
Country Grammar

Day 7 - Song That Reminds Me Of A Certain Event

I got to play wedding singer for my big brother. I don't know what happened {I blame Clint, my accompanist}, but I started bawling like a flippin' baby in the middle of the ceremony. Then I got tickled when Clint started laughing at me. It's a really good thing I was hiding behind a tree, or we would've been in so much trouble.

Day 6 - Song That Reminds Me Of Somewhere

This song always reminds me of home. Riding through town with my best friends in the summer, hanging my feet out the window. Sitting on tailgates by the lake. My mom and dad. Living for the summer.

Day 5 - Song That Reminds Me Of Someone

10th grade. Band geek and a football player. First kiss in the school parking lot after the homecoming halftime show. Had to push him out of the back of my best friend's car so he wouldn't miss football practice. Won't say his name, but I'll never forget him-thanking God every time that that's all he was.

Day 4 - Song That Makes Me Sad

This song reminds me of all the friends I lost too soon. Every time I hear it on the radio, I have to pull over and cry. Sleep in peace, loves!

Day 3 - Song That Makes Me Happy

This song perfectly describes what it's like to feel pure, unabashed joy - from tips to toes. I LOVE Colbie Caillat, so pleeze visit her YouTube channel and listen to all her fantastic songs, especially Lucky with Jason Mraz.

Others that make me smile:

You and I Both
Geek In The Pink
She's Country

What makes you smile?

Day 2: My Least Favorite Song

Let me just say, that I used to kinda heart this song. You can't deny, it's stinkin' catchy. And Willow's super cute. But, as with all catchy tunes, radio/tv stations play it into the ground until it makes your ears bleed.

Others on the list include:

Mambo #5
Don't Worry, Be Happy
Livin' La Vida Loca
Anything by Justin Bieber. Miley Cyrus, Eminem, or Alan Jackson

What are your least favorite songs?

Day 1 - Your Favorite Song

This one is TUFF-like choosing your favorite child, or favorite toe. Ok I do have a favoite toe, but I'm a freak. Whatever song is on the radio/iPod/whatever at the time, is pretty much my favorite. So here is one of my 15,492.7 favorite songs:.

I heart Adele, but the Garth Brooks and Josh Kelley versions are also a-ma-zing.

Runners up include {but are not limited to}:

How Deep The Father's Love For Us - The Joy Williams version is my fave!
Galway Girl - The entire PS I Love You soundtrack is pretty much the soundtrack to. my. life. It got everything a person could need: Flogging Molly, The Pogues, etc. But this song is the best one in the whole movie, and guess what? NOT in the soundtrack!
