This month I’m doing a 30-day song challenge following the prompts given by Donna from MyOBT, one of my favorite blogs. It sounded like so much fun I couldn’t resist. Feel free to join in on your social media platform, add your picks in the comments below, or simply enjoy (hopefully) the music I’ve chosen.

OK, everyone has their dark side…

It was the summer between 4th and 5th grade. I was in the yard playing by myself with the radio on. (Thanks to my friend who introduced me to everything awesome.) Neil Diamond sang through the tinny sounds of the transistor, and I hearkened back to Miss Magnuson’s 4th grade art class. She’d always play music (Neil Diamond was one of her favorites) while we created. Miss Magnuson was totally cool. Red hair, clogs, mod Rhoda clothes…hardly a “teacher” at all (especially in a Catholic school with nuns as those other teachers). She was the fun auntie everyone wanted.

Anyway, I listened in the yard and at once became a life-long fan of Neil, and have forever remembered Miss Magnuson and that pinnacle childhood moment with this song.

Today is another twofer because I couldn’t decide between a male or female voice, so I’m going to present one of each…Annie and Art.

I never knew my heart could be broken…until that one day.

My little brother died in 2006.

Charlotte and I chose this as one of the songs to be played as a backdrop to the video tribute to Diggy at his funeral. The story behind the song is as long as his life was short. Suffice it to say, sleep well, Diggy.

If you’re not in love with someone, let this be the song to depict what being in love is all about.  Strive for true love, and don’t settle.   When it comes along, well, revel in it. Because being in love is glorious.

Classical music has a place in so many hearts, but not enough hearts. It’s shunned as “stuffy.”

Opera. Again, people say, “stuffy!” Listen to the arias. Appreciate the voices that sing them.

This piece is the one that got me hooked on opera so many yeas ago.  The arias, the soulful, joyful, majestic sounds that come from a composer, and relayed through the talents of instruments and voice.

Contemporary opera is fine and good.  In my heart the classics hold a special place.

RIP Giacomo Puccini and Luciano Pavarotti.  I love you both!

Once upon a time, two bachelor pig farmers named Husby and Pinky worshipped Led Zeppelin.   The musicians were gods according to those weirdos.  The bachelors married two beautiful sisters, and yet, they are still remembered as the bachelor pig farmers.  And they still worship Led Zeppelin to this day.  I don’t blame them one bit.

This is one of my favorites, and I have to give credit to at least one (there might have been several) artist who inspired it. Muddy Waters sang a song, written by Willie Dixon, titled You Need Love in 1962. I love the Led Zeppelin spin-off, Whole Lotta Love.

Yep, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page?  Awesome!  Dare I say…gods?
