Music of my Heart #SecretSubjectSwap February 2016

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 14 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My “Secret Subject” is: Everyone has a favorite song.  Except...
It was submitted by:My Brain on Kids

Music is such an amazing part of my life. Genuinely a favorite thing for me. When I was younger, I often said that I could NEVER live without music. Now, it more like I could NEVER live with my child. I'd hate to live without music, but I could survive.  
So, as for having a favorite song, I'd say I'm definitely an exception. Around the time I was twenty years old, I developed a Top Ten list. It has changed over the years, but for the most part, it's my go to list. I decided some time ago, when asked my favorite song, to give my number one on the list, as the answer. It has never changed. Others have, but number one hasn't. 
This list was originally created, when my close friend as me... If you had to give up all music, except for ten songs, and could only listen to those songs for eternity, which ten songs do I choose. It took me over a week to compile a list, but I managed. Spots nine and ten have changed over the years. As new songs are released, but for the most part, the list has remained fairly constant. 
So, here's my list... 
1. Waiting in Vain by Bob Marley. 
2. Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain by Willie Nelson. 
3. Take Time to Know Her by Percy Sledge. 
4. What's Love Got to Do with It by Tina Turner. 
5. Have You Ever Seen The Rain by Creedence Clearwater Revival. 
6.  The One I Gave My Heart To by Aaliyah. 
7. Silver Threads and Golden Needles by Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, and Loretta Lynn. 
8. Hello Darlin' by Conway Twitty. 
9. Angels by The xx. 
10. Someone Like You by Adele. 
Over the years, other artists (Pop Evil, Common, Alicia Keys, AzYet, Shinedown, Mackelmore, Usher, Bruno Mars, etc etc) have made the list, but the bottom seems to be a revolving door. 
Some songs I feel need to be mentioned, since they've been on the list multiple times are... 
1. Jolene by Dolly Parton. 
2. Easy (Like Sunday Morning) by Faith No More. 
3. Hard to Say I'm Sorry by AzYet. 
4. Ready for Love by India.Arie.
5. I Can't Stop Loving You by Kem.
What about you?! Do you have a favorite song? Is it too hard to pick just one? Do you have a list?

  1. It's interesting how much you learn about people through their favorite songs. Some of the songs you picked don't surprise me at all, others reveal something new.

  2. Interesting list! I don't even know every one of them! I loooove EASY LIKE SUNDAY MORNING!
    Do I have a list? Not only do I have one, I blogged about it, too ;-)

  3. I didn't know Faith No More did a cover of Easy. I just listened to it... not all that impressed with the rendition, but I do like the song - the video is just weird.

    My number one is Black by Pearl Jam. Hands down. Gives me goosebumps and makes me cry.

  4. Some on your list are on mine, though they are revolving. I have two that haven't changed in 30 years.

  5. Favorite songs... Sugar by Maroon 5
    I love Adele and Train!!
    I can only imagine by Mercy Me is my ALL time favorite song!
    There are FAR TOO many to list that I don't like :D

  6. I love Bad Company they are my favorite any of their songs haha! I also love Bob Seiger and a whole bunch of the ones you mentioned. I love Jolie by Dolly! The old country is awesome!

  7. I really love Johnny Cash, Lady Gaga, and um...I'm not sure. I spend most of my car ride listening to books, I should really introduce my son to more music, right?

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
