Music is one of my favorite things. All kinds of music, from classical to Celtic to blues and rock of almost any variety (hold the Guns & Roses, please). But I admit to being a Top 40 fan. I always have my car radio tuned to the local pop station, and I know every song on that list by heart by the time it slides off the charts.
We all get our favorites, don’t we? That song that comes on and you turn up the radio full blast, and sing just like you are the star. For awhile, mine was the Christina Perri song, Jar of Hearts. It gave me a book. I love Pink, every single time, and who can resist Adele’s Rocky Road voice and lyrics?
Right this minute, I have three. In first place is Sexy and I Know it, by LMFAO. The first time I heard it was at a Zumba class, and the song is so much fun to dance to that I looked it up on iTunes. There is no mood that this song can’t shake out of me. And if you want a real laugh, go watch the video. I laugh until I cry, every time. (Warning, it’s pretty crude.)
#2 Just The Way You Are, Bruno Mars, is a stand-by favorite that makes me think of my son. His then girlfriend was deployed in Qatar and he was missing her terribly. He came by my house and played this song, and I knew I was going to eventually get a daughter-in-law. I also got a granddaughter, and this is the song I sing to her now.
#3 A big, big favorite from the first second I first heard it, Home, by Phillip Phillips. It’s the kind of song that makes me dance in the car and think of great scenes for my book, and I downloaded it the first day I heard it. Great song!
How about you? What are your favorites of the moment?
