My Top 15 Favorite Songs

Music has always been a huge part of my life. I’m sure that statement holds true for many people. Music has helped me get through some tough times, but my love for music began in early childhood.

I was just a little girl as I sat and listened to the music my parents listened to; a little Frank Sinatra, a bit of the Beatles, and many of the other popular artists of the 60’s. I had favorite songs back then, too. I get nostalgic when I hear something from the ‘good ol’ days’.

In the 70’s, I was introduced (by radio DJ’s) to The Carpenters, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Bee Gees, Abba…and so many more pop artists. Then came AC/DC, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and The Eagles. When I was old enough to buy my own records, I was thrilled! I bought my records with my babysitting money in a little record store, aptly named, “The Music Box.” I loved that place!

Most of my favorite songs are from the 90’s – I’m not saying I don’t have favorites from other decades, but my Top 15 favorite songs are mostly from the 90’s. The following songs made my list based on lyrics, guitars, drums, or on a deeper, more personal level. I hope you enjoy these videos!

Earworm – This Is The Song That Doesn’t End

It all started when I found and shared this meme on Facebook: 

117209894_3208628332556599_3690101976728913966_n

It reminded me of Lamb Chop and Shari…and The Song That Doesn’t End…which has been stuck in my head ever since! I’ve even been singing it aloud! Kill me now!

 

Have fun with this earworm, folks!! 

Is it stuck in your head now?

 

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week & Last Week’s Winner(s)

Friday again. I think. I can’t keep track. Every day is like the one before and the one after. I’ve resorted to doing jigsaw puzzles, coloring, word games, painting, and watching my old childhood favorite tv series Dark Shadows. I used to run home from school every day just so I wouldn’t miss an episode! That is, until my mother wouldn’t let me watch it anymore. She said I was having nightmares but wouldn’t I remember having nightmares? I remember ALL the other nightmares I had as a kid.

Anyway, I’m doing a lot of different things these days just to break the monotony of “same shit, different day.” At least prior to COVID19, I had options; I could go shopping, have lunch out with Dad, visit with my son and his little family, have lunch with a friend, or go to appointments. So many people are feeling the stress of staying home and social distancing. I hope this post will break the monotony and provide some levity, improving your mood! 

As mentioned last week, your vote for your favorite funny meme will determine the winner for the next week’s top billing!

Last week’s winners: (Tied) Pinatas and Aunt Clara!

Earworm – Prop Me Up Beside The Jukebox (If I Die)

I’m not a Country music fan these days, however back in the 90’s I sure was. It was a time in my life when I needed the calm and “down to earth” style I found in Country music. Things started to change when it seemed like every new artist was trying to sound like Garth Brooks or Alan Jackson. That’s when I switched back to good ol’ Rock music!

 

I still have a few favorites in the Country music category, though. Joe Diffie’s “Prop Me Up Beside The Jukebox (If I Die)” is one of them. I had this song pop into my head this morning and I remembered that Joe Diffie passed away from COVID19. He was 61 years old.

 

RIP Joe. I hope you know this song is forever imprinted on my memory!
