30 Day Challenge, Day 1

I'm actually doing another of these 30 Day Challenges on Facebook (and stuck on Day 5: A picture of your favorite memory. What on earth? I have zillions of favorite memories, and a lot of them were not preserved in a photo! I'll have to get creative...) It would seem they're the latest craze. However, I think I'm going to do this one that I learned of on Mirfain's blog, since I've been itching to post lately and couldn't think of anything to talk about. So here's a whole list of things to talk about!

Day 1: A favorite song.
Day 2: A favorite movie.
Day 3: A favorite book.
Day 4: A favorite television program.

Day 7: Five things you couldn't possibly live without.
Day 8: A photo of something you ate today.
Day 9: A photo you took.
Day 10: A photo of you taken over ten years ago.
Day 11: A photo of you taken recently.
Day 12: A song that you want played at your wedding(or was played).
Day 13: A guilty pleasure.
Day 14: A vacation you would like to take.
Day 15: Something you've always wanted to do.
Day 16: A song that makes you cry.
Day 17: An art piece.
Day 18: A time when you felt passionate and alive.
Day 19: A talent of yours.
Day 20: A hobby of yours.
Day 21: Something you know you do differently than most people.
Day 22: A website.
Day 23: A way in which you want to be remembered.
Day 24: A movie no one would expect you to love.
Day 25: A recipe.
Day 26: A childhood memory.
Day 27: A physical feature you love.
Day 28: A scar you have and it's story.
Day 29: Hopes, dreams and plans you have for the next 365 days.
Day 30: A motto or philosophy.

So, without any further delay I shall commence with Day 1: A favorite song!

Thank goodness they just said "A" favorite song...

*goes to YouTube and browses through the nearly 300 songs on her "favorites" list*

You know what, just for the heck of it I am going to do this my way and post favorite songs from several different genres. And where there's one favorite song, there are bound to be about 10 more that could just as easily vie for the place of "favorite", just so you know!

Favorite Classical Piece: Pavane, Op. 50 (Faure)
Song That I Refer to As My General Favorite: Don't Stop Believin' (Journey)
Favorite Piece of Choral Music: Evening Hymn (Gardiner)
Favorite Song from a Musical: Work Song (Les Miserables) (it's the epic opening song), One Day More (Les Mis) (the signature Les Mis song, IMO), I Dreamed a Dream (Les Mis) (one of my favorites of the solos, and one of my favorite songs to sing), On My Own (Les Mis) (my other favorite solo...I think just about anyone could relate to it at some point in their life)
Hmmm, I'm seeing a pattern of Les Mis songs here. I wonder why? haha Okay, here's a few from some other musicals...
Seasons of Love (Rent), Overture (Phantom of the Opera) (AH THE MEMORIES!!!), and I would post Home (Phantom), but all of the recordings of it on YouTube are absolutely terrible, IMO. Well, if you'd like to hear me singing it, click here, but I've sung it better (I should re-record it sometime...)
Favorite Weird Song: Wuthering Heights (Kate Bush) Actually, there are so many that could go in this category...I love weird music!) Okay, here's another :) : Steppe (Rene Aubry)
Favorite Song That's Almost Classical But Not Quite: La Grande Cascade (Rene Aubry)

All right, I could probably keep doing this all day long, but I'll stop. ;) There's a small collection of my favorites!
