Me again with days 15-21 of my music challenge! As I did last week, I’ll post a reminder of the challenge, then get on with it.
Day 15: A song that is a cover by another artist
Uptown Girl – Westlife
I love this song and it was the first cover that came to mind! The original of course was by Billy Joel in the 80’s but honestly I prefer the Westlife version from 2000.
Day 16: One of your favourite songs from a movie
Jump – The Pointer Sisters (From Love Actually)
I had to choose this just because it reminds me of that classic Hugh Grant scene in Love Actually!
Day 17: A song that features your favourite artist
Goodbye Friend – David Guetta feat. The Script
Now honestly I didn’t even realise The Script had featured on anyone elses songs, but I managed to find this on Spotify, and whilst it’s completely different from their usual style, this is so. damn. good. (Now if the guys could hurry up and give us that new album they keep teasing us about that would be great!)
Day 18: A song from the year you were born
2 Become 1 – Spice Girls
My first thought for this one was Wannabe, and I do love both songs, but 2 Become 1 is just that little bit better.
Day 19: A song that makes you think about life
Where is the Love – Black Eyed Peas
I chose this song for this day way in advance, because even though this song was released in 2003, it’s still so relevant today. When they sang it with Ariana Grande at her benefit concert it really sunk in how much relevance it still has 14 years after its initial release. And honestly it was the perfect song to sing at that concert considering the events that led to the concert being put on.
Day 20: A song that reminds you of your Mum
Never Gonna Give You Up – Rick Astley
It’s her ringtone, it’s that simple!
Day 21: A favourite song with a person’s name in the title
Grace Kelly – Mika
This was so hard because I couldn’t think of any songs with names in! I literally had to scroll through a massive 800 song playlist of songs from 2000-2012 and I found 2 songs that I like that have names in and this was one of them.
So that’s it for this week, next week’s final post will be on Sunday 16th because there’ll be 2 extra days to make the 30 days of the challenge!
