I’ve been tagged to participate in the A Song A Day Challenge by A Momma’s View.  She’s really great, and if you haven’t acquainted yourself with her and her site, you should do so ASAP.  I always enjoy her perspective and photos and “Did You Know?” posts, and I’m certain you will too.

Anyway, this challenge comes with a few stipulations:

The rules are:

Post a song a Day for five consecutive days
Post what the lyrics mean to you ( optional)
Post the name of the song and video
Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge.

Firstly, and I’ll add that neither should feel any obligation to participate, my nominees are:

Sandra

and

Doctor Meg

 

Now, with my love of music, this should’ve been an easy post(s).  However, choosing only five songs in five days is gonna be difficult.  How do I only pick five songs? Thus, this was a difficult task.

To make my options more specific, I think what I’ll do is represent each day of the five with what I consider the five most important things in my life.  So, for Day 1, I’m going with the topic of:

FRIENDS

Aside from my wife, I’ve had four closer than close, lifelong friends.  Well, since I was an 17 year-old college freshman at least.  This song, while it is a bit of a downer,  reminds me of the one who happens to no longer be with us.  You can read about why here, if you’d like to:

The song I’m referring to is titled:

“Boys In The Street” by Greg Holden

 

Lyrics:

When I was younger

My daddy told me I would never

Never amount to nothing special

He’d come at me from every angle

He’d say

“You’re the last thing I wanted, the

last thing I need

How am I gonna answer when my

friends tell me

My son was kissing boys in the

street”

  4. Such a heartbreaking story about your friend, but a lovely tribute.

    So… hmm… I have to hurry up and do this because it’s going to run right into a-to-z… (and we all know a ton of people suggested I do something with music…) But I totally want to do it! Thanks for thinking of me. 🙂
