30 Music Questions

Guess what?! It's been almost an entire month since anybody posted. And two months since I personally posted. But Trinity is back! 
Aaaaand, I won't be talking about writing today. It'll be music. Which is a big part of writing, right!?
Anyway, here are the thirty questions that I'm going to answer for today's post. 

1: A song you like with a color in the title:
I actually have quite a few, but here's a few my favorites... Courtesy Of The Red, White, And Blue by Toby Keith / Blue Xmas (To Whom It May Concern) by Miles Davis / Streets of Gold from Oliver and Company.

2: A song you like with a number in the title:
I'm making two whole new playlists for colors and numbers! And they're huge. I found 22 number songs. I'll try and narrow them down to... three. Ouch.
Okay, okay, four... Edge of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks / The 12 Days Of Christmas by Straight No Chaser / Million Voices by Barlow Girl / Seven Ways To Praise by Carman

3: A song that reminds you of summertime:AHA! I already have a playlist for this one. Summer Sunshine by *gulp* ... Barbie / Knee Deep by Zac Brown Band / Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride by Jump5 / and sigh... Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen.
Hey! It reminds me of summer because the first time I heard it all the way through was when the Olympic Swim team made a music video to it, okay!?

4: A song that reminds you of someone you would rather forget about:
I will gracefully bow out of this one as I really don't have a good answer for it.

5: A song that needs to be played LOUD:
Boomin' by TobyMac. And Showstopper by TobyMac.
6: A song that makes you want to dance:
Oooh, lots of songs... But if I'm not in the mood, no song at all. If any song can make me dance, it's Thriller, though.

7: A song to drive to:
Showstopper by TobyMac. Most Audio Adrenaline songs. White and Nerdy by Weird Al Yankovic because when I drive a twelve passenger van with carseats and a Bible verse on the side, it's ridiculous to think I'm so cool for rapping this song perfectly.

8: A song about drugs or alcohol:
At first I was like, "Uh.... I don't have any of those." But then I thought of one.
Who Spiked The Eggnog by Straight No Chaser!

9: A song that makes you happy:
Touch The Sky by Julie Fowlis usually makes me feel somewhat rapturous. If that makes sense.

10: A song that makes you sad:
Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman. It makes me sad to think of leaving my family when I get married.

11: A song that you never get tired of:
I can eventually get tired of any song. A song I'm not tired of yet, but have listened to many times? This This, Message For Ya, and Baby Girl by Nicole C. Mullen.

12: A song from your preteen years:
Get Down by Audio Adrenaline. My dad used to listen to DCTalk and Audio Adrenaline on the way to work and I remember riding with him and singing their songs, so they're special to me now.

13: One of your favorite 80’s songs:
Oh, gee... I know so many... (Not sarcasm). Okay, here's three.
Another One Bites The Dust by Queen / No Spill Blood by Oingo Boingo / Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics

14: A song that you would love played at your wedding:
Sabbath Prayer from Fiddler On The Roof, maybe. I don't know. I really don't care for sad, sappy songs that make me bawl. Thriller will almost definitely be played at some point. (Not during the ceremony, though.)

15: A song that is a cover by another artist:
Party Rock Anthem by Lindsey Stirling.

16: One of your favorite classical songs:
Ooh-ooh!! Yay!! I've always had a special place for Tchaikovsky's music. It's just been a favorite of mine. Pachelbel's music is close behind, possibly tied with Bach, then Beethoven. Mozart I've never liked much for some reason. Wagner's Ride Of The Valkyries is a favorite. / Moonlight Sonata, possibly. / La Gazza Ladra, or The Theiving Magpie by Gioacchino Rossini. / Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 / Holst's Mars, Bringer Of War 
I don't know. I was exposed to a LOT of classical music as a child, so it's special to me.

17: A song that you would sing a duet with on karaoke:
Playing With The Big Boys from Prince of Egypt. / Let Our Voices Rise Like Incense by Petra / Hallelujah by Michael Henry and Justin Robinette / and though I probably shouldn't... Phantom Of The Opera by Emmy Rossum, Gerard Butler and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

18: A song from the year that you were born:
Colors Of The Wind by Judy Kuhn. (I didn't even know that was written the year I was born!)

19: A song that makes you think about life:
Something To Be Proud Of  by Montgomery Gentry / Walking Her Home by Mark Shultz / We Live by Superchick / You're Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins

20: A song that has many meanings to you:
This is a hard one. I'm going to go with Sweetly Broken by Jeremy Riddle. Ever since a friend told me it was her favorite song it's had extra meaning, and then the song itself is very meaningful and almost always makes me cry.

21: A favorite song with a person’s name in the title:
A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash / Ahab The Arab by Ray Stevens / Valorie by Nicole C. Mullen / Me and Becky by Chris Rice / Bye Bye Brianna by Nicole C. Mullen

22: A song that moves you forward:
Not entirely sure what this means, but I'll give it a shot.
Always Love You by Nicole C. Mullen / Anthem by Superchick / You Can't Take Me by Bryan Adams (Spirit)

23: A song that you think everybody should listen to:
Should've Been Me by Citizen Way

24: A song by a band you wish were still together:
Jesus Is Just Alright by DCTalk. /sigh....

25: A song by an artist no longer living:
Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash. /sigh...

26: A song that makes you want to fall in love:
Love Like Crazy by Lee Brice / Walking Her Home by Mark Shultz

27: A song that breaks your heart:
Forever 17 by Zoegirl / For You by Keith Urban / I Need A Miracle by Third Day
And the last, worst/best one... Little Brother by Judy Rogers.
Just listen to it. Really.

28: A song by an artist with a voice that you love:
Well, the voice I love is Nicole C. Mullen (She's on this list a lot, isn't she?). And the best song to hear her voice is Redeemer. But my favorite song by her is This This.

29: A song that you remember from your childhood:
DCTalk song, Audio Adrenaline songs, but my two songs of choice are You Are My Sunshine sung by my mom to me, and Grandma's Feather Bed, sung by my dad while he plays his guitar for us kids.

30: A song that reminds you of yourself:
Goodness. This is a really hard one. All of these songs are me...
Okey-dokey. I'll pick a couple. Barlow Girl by Superchick / Man Of God by Audio Adrenaline / Words by Hawk Nelson / Cowboy Girl by Lonestar / and White And Nerdy by Weird Al Yankovic

WOW. That took me a really long time. Like, two hours. 
I've got other stuff I need to get done today, so I'll leave it at that.
