One blogger I read regularly is Cal of Calvin's Canadian Cave of Cool. Lately he has been running a meme called the 30 Day Music Challenge, and I thought I'd take up the challenge & do a heavy metal version.
Here is the entire list:
Day 01 - Your favorite song
Day 02 - Your least favorite song
Day 03 - A song that makes you happy
Day 04 - A song that makes you sad
Day 05 - A song that reminds you of someone
Day 06 - A song that reminds of you of somewhere
Day 07 - A song that reminds you of a certain event
Day 08 - A song that you know all the words to
Day 09 - A song that you can dance to
Day 10 - A song that makes you fall asleep
Day 11 - A song from your favorite band
Day 12 - A song from a band you hate
Day 13 - A song that is a guilty pleasure
Day 14 - A song that no one would expect you to love
Day 15 - A song that describes you
Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate
Day 17 - A song that you hear often on the radio
Day 18 - A song that you wish you heard on the radio
Day 19 - A song from your favorite album
Day 20 - A song that you listen to when you’re angry
Day 21 - A song that you listen to when you’re happy
Day 22 - A song that you listen to when you’re sad
Day 23 - A song that you want to play at your wedding
Day 24 - A song that you want to play at your funeral
Day 25 - A song that makes you laugh
Day 26 - A song that you can play on an instrument
Day 27 - A song that you wish you could play
Day 28 - A song that makes you feel guilty
Day 29 - A song from your childhood
Day 30 - Your favorite song at this time last year
All righty, Day 01 is your favourite song. Already I am feeling challenged beyond hope because I cannot name just one song. According to Last.fm, my most played song is Dawn of Destiny's Lost, which there isn't a clip of on YouTube. So, number two on that list is actually, DoD's "Lost." There is a clip for that, using some uninspired video game footage.
Number three on that list is "Tilsim" by the Turkish band, Almora. I never get sick of this song!
The third song I'll stick on this list (I don't care if it's considered cheating to name three songs) is probably my favourite metal song ever: "Ghost Love Score", by Nightwish. There is no official video for this 10 minute long tour-de-force, but here is the End of an Era version, which always brings a tear to my eye. This was the last time this song was ever performed properly, IMO, and I think that is fucking sad.
What about you? What would you put on this list?
