30 days, 30 songs
4 81. Heart of the Congos - The Congos
Day 01 - My favorite song
29 7.32. Natty Dread - Bob Marley
Day 02 - The first song I heard
Note: I was born at home and right after I "came" out, my father put this LP on. He hoped I won't let my mother cry when I would grow up... That didn't work so well but Reggae has thus been part of my life from the very 1st moment (literally).
1 03. Katamari Fortissimo Damashii - Various Artists
Day 03 - A weird (funny) song
Note: Actually, it is not really the song which is weird but the combination of the music with the videoclip.
16 9.14. Suzanne Vega - Suzanne Vega
Day 04 - A song that makes me sad
291 7.25. Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn Manson
Day 05 - A song that reminds me of someone
Note: Actually, I'm not a big fan of Marilyn Manson but back in France, I had a gothic (girl)friend who was a huge fan of him.
38 6.86. Performance and Cocktails - Stereophonics
Day 06 - A song that reminds me of somewhere
Note: I spent a year in England and one of my roommates, a Spanish guy, had this CD. This songs always reminds the place where we lived.
7 4.37. Progress - Take That
Day 07 - A song that reminds me of a certain event
Note: Actually, I'm not a big fan of Robbie Williams and Take That but I went with my wife to see them in concert in Amsterdam and we had a great time. The second video is footage from the actual concert.
29 8.68. The Essential Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan
Day 08 - A song that reminds me of my father
186 8.29. Strange Days - The Doors
Day 09 - A song that I know all the words to
Note: Actually, I'm not sure I know all the lyrics (I'm not so good with this...) but it is an easy song and it must be closed to it.
1 610. Inna Heights - Buju Banton
Day 10 - My daughter's favorite song
Note: I tried to make my daughter Zoé (5 years old) listen to some good old Reggae from time to time and this song really sticked.
12 7.811. Dead Man (Soundtrack) - Neil Young
Day 11 - A soundtrack I love
171 7.812. Garden State - Various Artists

Day 13 - A song from my favorite male vocalist
2 7.514. The Best of Suzanne Vega: Tried and True - Suzanne Vega
Day 14 - A song from my favorite female vocalist
1 915. Daniel in the Lion's Den - Alpha & Omega
Day 15 - A song that describes me
Note: I know, the song is actually about a woman but a part from that, it fits quite well.
2 016. Totally Krossed Out - Kriss Kross
Day 16 - A song that I used to love but now hate
Note: When I was a kid, I thought this song was awesome. Of course, it now looks rather ridiculous. Actually, the tune is still catchy, don't you think?
112 8.517. Endtroducing..... - DJ Shadow
Day 17 - A song from an artist I wish more people liked
70 8.418. Blue Train - John Coltrane
Day 18 - A Jazz tune I love
2 919. Marcus Garvey - Burning Spear
Day 19 - A song from my favorite album
Note: I'm not sure if it is my favorite album but it is definitely one of my favorite.
21 6.720. Proud Like a God - Guano Apes
Day 20 - A song that I listen to when I'm angry
1 821. Stream - Twarres
Day 21 - A song that I listen to when I'm sad
Note: You may wonder what kind of language is this. It is a Dutch band but they don't sing in Dutch. They sing actually in West Frisian, a dialect spoken by about 500 000 people in the Netherlands.
1 022. Anticonstitutionnellement - Monsieur R
Day 22 - A French song I love
1 823. De Beste

Day 24 - A song that I want to be played at my funeral
2 925. Stand By Me - Ben E. & The Drifters King,Ben E & The Drifters King
Day 25 - A song that I can play on an instrument
Note: Back in the days when I played the saxophone, this was one of the songs I played with my very first band. Obviously, I played the Alto sax even though there is no brass on this version.
572 7.726. ...And Justice for All - Metallica
Day 26 - My favorite song from Guitar Hero
Note: This song itself is pretty cool but it is just totally awesome to play on Guitar Hero. I finished it a couple of times in "Hard" but I usually mess it up at the end. The first time, I took me 3 months of daily training to nail it (!).
47 727. Liberation Transmission - Lostprophets
Day 27 - A song my step-son (Nick) can sing pitch perfect on Guitar Hero World Tour
0 028. Proverbial Reggae - Gladiators
Day 28 - A song that changed my music taste in some way
Note: Back then, I was interested in Reggae but, beside Bob Marley, I didn't know much about this music genre. Then, I saw those guys in concert, heard this song live and I was hooked for the rest of my life.
122 7.129. Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden
Day 29 - A song from my childhood
Note: I'm maybe now a Reggae boy but as a kid I definitely had some different musical taste. When I was 12 years old and started to get interested into music, the first genre that caught my interest was actually heavy metal - hard rock. I listened to different bands and one of my favorite was Iron Maiden.
1 730. Reggae Max - Garnett Silk
Day 30 - My favorite song from the last 6 months
Note: I always loved Silk's voice but I never found his songs really impressive until I recently found this tune which just blew my mind.
