Sing A Song Meme (Post #11)

Filed under: Memes — Tense @ 1:00 pm

I stole this meme from Kwizgiver! More music stuff – I think I got some songs stuck in the heads of the people who played my 80s music trivia; let’s see if I can do it again.

1. What is your favorite song of all time? Does is bring back any special memories?
I think my all-time favorite is “Ghost Story” by Sting. It’s a beautiful song; it’s poetry. I often use it in my classroom when I’m teaching imagery. Then I challenge my students to find songs of their own with lots of imagery.

2. What song do you like the best of those released in the past year?
I think “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse would have to be my newest fave. Her music is so different from everything else out there.

3. Have you been to many concerts? What was your first? Which were your favorites?
I’ve not been to a whole lot of concerts. My very first concert was to see John Denver when I was 7 years old; I knew all the words to all his songs. My favorite concert would have to be when I saw Brooks and Dunn; they put on a great show, and despite their being country, they can rock! I also enjoyed seeing Alison Krauss and Union Station last year.  Huh? They’re all country concerts, and that’s not my fave kind of music. Interesting.

4. If you were a musician, what genre of music would you perform? What would your band be called?
I’m pretty sure it would be some variation of pop, but not Brit or Beyonce-style pop. I’d be more like Sting or Jack Johnson.

5. Recommend 5 songs to your friends:
Ghost Story – Sting
Amy Winehouse–Rehab
Into the Ocean – Blue October
Dancing Nancies – Dave Matthews Band
Push – Madonna

  1. I stopped liking Rehab when Rosie O sang it online once. It also was over played. I use John Denver in my poetry unit!

  2. I haven’t heard of any of those songs in your recommended 5… I actively ignore Madonna, but I think I need to start listening to the radio more often.

  3. Ooooh you saw John Denver? Jeal.ous.
