5.85. Dave Matthews Band
Day 5 - A song that reminds you of someone
Dave Matthews was my best friends favorite band
we went to many concerts together -
even though he liked them more than I did, we always had a good time - and DMB grew on me after a while.
76. Elton John
Day 6 - A song that reminds of you of somewhere
Reminds me of Philadelphia for obvious reasons :)
7.67. 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.
7.38. 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.
7.89. Nat King Cole
Day 9 - A song that reminds you of your parents
My parents danced to Ramblin Rose at their wedding
and it was always their song.
6.710. Bruce Springsteen

It is a song I think anyone can dance to - even me.
Bruce dancing with his Mom at The Spectrum in Philadelphia.
811. Chuck Mangione
Day 11 - A song that makes you sleepy
Probably the most mellow piece of music ever composed
7.912. Ben E. King

Great song that went with a Great movie
8.113. Chuck Berry

Day 14 - A song from your favorite male vocalist
As much as I loved John Lennon, Paul was my favorite Beatle
715. Tina Turner
Day 15 - A song from your favorite female vocalist
Just because it was so electrifying -
one of my favorite Live Aid Performances
8.216. 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.
Day 17 - A song that describes you
Haven't found what I'm looking for, but I am still searching :)
6.818. Billy Joel
Day 18 - A song that you used to love but now hate
Used to love this song until I learned how true it is.
6.519. 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.
7.820. 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.
Day 22 - A song that you listen to when you’re angry
Perfect song to listen to when you're mad at the world.
6.923. Three Dog Night
Day 23 - A song that you listen to when you’re happy
Perfect song to listen to when you're happy with the world
1024. Forrest Gump
Day 24 - A song that you listen to when you’re sad
This music is sad and uplifting at the same time
7.825. Elvis Presley
Day 25 - A song that you want to play at your wedding
My favorite Elvis song
7.726. Frank Sinatra
Day 26 - A song that you want to play at your funeral
Let the record show that Frank's way was a lot better than my way.
7.927. Creedence Clearwater Revival
Day 27 - A song that makes you laugh
I've listened to this song a thousand times
and it still sounds like 'There's a bathroom on the right' - LOL
7.528. 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
7.229. 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
5.330. 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.
Paul McCartney's mike doesn't work for the first two minutes -
don't adjust your sets.
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.
