30 Day Music Challenge

This is a thing…

So here is mine…

Marillion – Lavender

Day Two –

99 Red Ballons – Nena

Or I you prefer…

99 Luftballons

Day Three

Oh Yeah – Roxy Music

Day Four

This was probably the hardest choice of the lot as there is no-one I really want to forget, so went with this as it reminds me of a teenage unrequited love…

I wanted to avoid two songs by the same artist, but just could not have this track…

Bruce Springsteen – Frankie

Day Twenty Two

Madness – One Better Day

Day Twenty Three (especially for all the #forgotten80s crowd)

Bardo – One Step Further

Day Twenty Four – Just one concert, at Christmas, broadcast live…

Slade – My Oh My

Day Twenty Five – so many possibilities here, so many lost greats. With no version of Hold the Heart with Stuart on vocals, I went for this

Big Country – Chance

Day Twenty Six

Thompson Twins – Hold Me Now

Day Twenty Seven

Cars – Drive

Day Twenty Eight

The Carpenters – Close To You

Day Twenty Nine – hear this and I am five years old again, wanting to be a cowboy

Glenn Campbell

Day Thirty – you can’t get the original so here is Paul singing it

The Beatles – Fool On The Hill

Or alternatively it being used on the opening credits of Dinner For Schmuks

The Beatles – Fool On The Hill

And that is my 30 day challenge… Not adventurous and most are well known but they mean a lot to me. Also it does not include some of my favourite songs of all time. The most notable omissions are Zoom, Don’t Give Up, Open Your Heart (Human League) and Born To Run… And of course, not one Christmas song, not even Fairytale of New York!
