30 Questions About Music I Like.

Ramana had a post the other day that gave me food for thought…. sometimes I wish he would just send the food instead of the work. 😉

Do I know thirty songs?

Well now, let me see how I get on…..

1: A song you like with a colour in the title: Brown Girl In the Ring – Boney M.

2: A song you like with a number in the title: Twenty Tiny Fingers – Alma Cogan

3: A song that reminds you of summertime: Here Comes Summer – Dave Clark Five

4: A song that reminds you of someone you would rather forget about: These Boots Are Made for Walkin – Nancy Sinatra

5: A song that needs to be played LOUD: Love Changes Everything – Michael Ball and Il Divo

6: A song that makes you want to dance: The old fashioned way – Charles Aznavour

7: A song to drive to: She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain – Opry Gang

8: A song about drugs or alcohol: Little Old Wine Drinker Me –  Dean Martin

9: A song that makes you happy: Yellow Bird – Roger Whittaker

10: A song that makes you sad: If You go away – Julio Iglesias

11: A song that you never get tired of: Bring Him Home (les Mis) – Colm Wilkinson – Four Tenors

12: A song from your preteen years: How Much Is That Doggie In The Window – Patti Page

13: One of your favourite 80’s songs: Walking in the air – Aled Jones

14: A song that you would love played at your wedding: Just the way you are – Billy Joel

15: A song that is a cover by another artist: I (Who Have Nothing) – Shirley Bassey

The lyrics for “I (Who Have Nothing)” were translated into English by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. They are based on the Italian song “Uno dei tanti” which was released by Joe Sentieri in 1961.

16: One of your favourite classical songs: O Mio Babbino Caro – Kiri Te Kanawa

17: A song that you would sing a duet with on karaoke: Islands In The Stream – Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers

18: A song from the year that you were born: The Anniversary Song – Al Jolson

19: A song that makes you think about life: Que Sera Sera – Doris Day

20: A song that has many meanings to you: Barcelona – Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé

21: A favorite song with a person’s name in the title: Cecilia – Simon & Garfunkel

22: A song that moves you forward: What a wonderful world – LOUIS ARMSTRONG.

23: A song that you think everybody should listen to: The Impossible Dream – Matt Monro

24: A song by a band you wish were still together: When I’m 64– The Beatles

25: A song by an artist no longer living: You ‘re nobody ’til somebody loves you – Dean Martin

26: A song that makes you want to fall in love: Dance Me to the End of Love – Leonard Cohen

27: A song that breaks your heart: Empty Chairs at Empty Tables (Les Mis) – Michael Ball

Maybe this choice should be next to #23, The words might apply to many a home in war torn countries or the homes of those who never return from fighting or are victims of man’s inhumanity to man.

28: A song by an artist with a voice that you love: Sunrise, Sunset – Perry Como

29: A song that you remember from your childhood: You are my Heart’s Delight – David Whitfield

From Land of Smiles, I was in a school production of this! A chorus girl, that’s me!!

30: A song that reminds you of yourself: When I Grow Up – Shirley Temple

You need to see the actions for this one….

What do you think, is it me?

    We agree on 23, just differ on the voice – LOL –
    24 will mean something to me in a few months
    19 – great choice and so very you

    It’s a fun list and typical of Rummy to make us think – LOLLOL

  2. Rummuser

    Yes, I think that it is you, very much you.

    Brilliant list Grannymar and in retrospect, some that should have featured in my list if only I had given more thought.

    Shackman, the credit for the exercise should really go to Mitch Mitchell who gave me the idea. But I agree, it was fun doing that.

    shackman – It had to be #19, I have watched so many people waste years planning for something that never happens.

    Ramana – ‘When I grow up’ is me especially the part in the chair!!

    Dianne – That was why I linked to all of them so people could listen to the songs if they wished.

    Celia – Dance me to the end of time is a particular favourite of mine.

    I love many of your choices. Leonard can do no wrong in my book. And I so miss the Beatles. And Barcelona – wow, that surprised me. I truly love their version.

    WWW – Barcelona is on a CD that Elly left with me for safe keeping when she went to France in 1998, for a years study. I safe kept it! So safe, I refused to give it back… possession is 99% etc. 😉

    This looks like a lot of thought (and work). Of all the songs, one of my favorites and the one that touches me most, as the father of a son and daughter, is Sunrise, Sunset. That is a beautiful version you linked to!

    Al – It did take some time to to prepare this post. I drew up a rough list then listened to each song to make sure it fitted the request. I struggled with three and only changed two numbers. It made me think about the music I listen to and enjoy.
