5. Dave Matthews Band
Day 5 - A song that reminds you of someone

Dave Matthews was my best friends favorite band

Reminds me of Philadelphia for obvious reasons :)

7. David Bowie
Day 08 - A song that reminds you of a certain event

There were many great performances during Live Aid,
this was the best one
because it summed up what the day was about so well -
I always think of this moment when I listen to David Bowie.
portlander's rating:

Average listal rating (42 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
8. John Denver
Day 07 - A song that you know all the words to

John Denver was the first musician I really loved
and his was the first concert I went to
Sunshine On my Shoulders was the last song and 15,000 people sang it together - still gives me chills thinking about it to this day.

My parents danced to Ramblin Rose at their wedding

16. Led Zeppelin
Day 16 - A song that no one would expect you to love

I like Classic Rock/Pop better than Hard Rock/Heavy Metal,
so I didn't think I would like Led Zeppelin -
but I watched them play Stairway To Heaven at Live Aid and it has been one of my favorite songs ever since.

Average listal rating (745 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
17. U2

Haven't found what I'm looking for, but I am still searching :)

Used to love this song until I learned how true it is.
portlander's rating:

Average listal rating (125 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
19. Rod Stewart
Day 19 - A song from an artist you wish more people liked

I know Rod Stewart isn't real popular
and as a live performer I do have to admit he is kind of, well, Bad -
but he did have some great songs and Forever Young was one of them.
portlander's rating:

Average listal rating (164 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
20. Louis Armstrong
Day 20 - A Jazz tune I love

Love this song, I smile every time I hear it.

Day 21- A song from your favorite album

Born To Run is included in my Bruce Springsteen Greatest Hits CD -
I tend to buy greatest hits CDs of the performers I like -
by the way, the man knows how to give a live performance -
Rod Stewart could take lessons.

Average listal rating (159 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating

I've listened to this song a thousand times

portlander's rating:

Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
28. Peter Paul and Mary
Day 28 - A song from your childhood

Sang this song around the campfire at camp for two summers -
so it would also qualify as a song I know all the words to

Average listal rating (214 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
29. The Beach Boys
Day 29 - A song you love about Summer

Can't surf a lick,
but this song always makes me want to head for the beach
portlander's rating:

Average listal rating (11 ratings) 5.3  IMDB Rating
30. Bob Geldof
Day 30 - A song that changed your music taste in some way
More like a day that changed my musical taste
I couldn't fit the whole Live Aid Concert in here,
so I am showing the USA and UK finales.



Before Live Aid I wasn't that big a fan of music -
I was aware of its existence, but I didn't listen to it that much - Live Aid was my rock and roll epiphany.

Nicely done sir. Glad I inspired you to make this list! And believe it or not I like at least half of these songs.

I've added your list to my 30 Days lists list.
