30 Day Music Challenge - Days 23 & 24

I can't believe may is almost over!  I sort of feel like doing this challenge has made the month go by even faster.  But at least next weekend is a three-day holiday weekend! Yay!

Day 23 - A song that you want to play at your wedding:  Since I'm already married, and since I don't play any instruments, I guess the appropriate inquiry would be "a song that you had played at your wedding."  To that end, aside from all of the songs that were chosen as soundtracks for particular events throughout the day (first dance, cake cutting, blah, blah, blah), one of the few songs that I asked the DJ to please make sure he played was Connected by the Stereo MCs.  I can't really explain why I love this song so much, but I always have.  I love it.  And it never gets old.  Crank it, the louder the better.

Day 24 - A song that you want to play at your funeral:  I don't think that my funeral is up to me.  As far as I'm concerned, it's rude to tell your survivors what you want done with your body after your dead.  They're the ones who have to deal with your loss and who have to somehow find the closure and comfort that they need to move on, so they should be the ones deciding how best to do that.  I'll be dead, so it really won't affect me at all.  That aside, I hope that my funeral will be more of a celebration than a depressing event, and I hope that something upbeat and fun can play, like Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles.  I could see that.


  1. I haven't heard the first one...STP are going to be on Jimmy Kimmel twice this week!

  2. "I'm gonna get myself connected. I ain't gonna go blind by the light that is reflected." HA! I love that one too. Good work on the blog Susie. I'm going to take up the challenge on mine shortly...and maybe a little twist on it Statham style.
