30 Day Song Challenge

Bring On The Musical Challenge

30 Day Song Challenge

So last month I got hooked on the '30 day song challenge' thanks to a music loving friend on Facebook.

It's as basic as any challenge can get - 30 days, 30 music questions which act as your Facebook status, daily tweet on Twitter or blog post.

So here are the questions along with my answers. It's a fun, mindless exercise in all things musically speaking.

day 01 - your favorite song: The Verve 'Bittersweet Symphony'

day 02 - your least favorite song: Miley Cyrus 'Party in the USA'

day 03 - a song that makes you happy: U2 'Beautiful Day'

The Dears

Spotlight On The Montreal Band

The Dears

Degeneration Street, the fifth album from the Montreal band The Dears, delivers the passion and soul that has earned the band the adoration of fans and critics worldwide is finally out in all it's musical glory.

I love, love, love it. It's an incredible record.

The track that is currently on constant repeat...is 'Omega Dog'. Think Trombone Shorty, Lenny Kravitz and Jamiroquai coming together in a fabulous hot and sweaty musical union and becoming one...the song they'd give life to would be this song.

Ridiculous good.

But I digress...you be your own judge.

Here was my gift to him....a mixed CD of my five favourite love songs (not so shocking of a gift coming from me).

So what are your favourite 'day of required love' songs?
