In the past few years it has been a regular thing for me to have these situations every once in a while:
I am at work. A good song starts.
Me: Oh, I love this song!
Coworker 1: Oh, me too! I used to listen to it when I was in high school.
Me: Well, I know the song, but I have no idea who is the singer or what is its name.
Coworker 2: Oh, I know it too. It is a classic. We had great songs when we were younger, right?
Coworker1: Yes, we had some really amazing songs. This one is Cyndy Lauper/Aerosmith/Roxette's.
Me: I will download it! It is great!
*writes down the name of the song on a random paper *
I am riding a car going somewhere, wherever, and I hear a song. This is my chain of thoughts:
Hm, I think I know this song... la la la la... yeah... it is awesome. They had so good songs back then. Well, we have them now, too. I mean, Adele is great, Beyonce, too. And I really love some pop/rock/alternative artists we have now that aren't that popular. la la la la Yeah, I should burn a CD with these stuff. la la la la Yap, i will, I will download this song when I get home. la la la la la
Guess what, I never did.
So, a few months ago, I took a few papers that I keep next to my PC, and when I hear a great song on the radio, either old or new, I use google to find the artist and write down his name and the name of the song. And right now I have 30ish songs on my list. And I will keep adding them. And a nice surprise to me that one of my coworkers added a few songs the other day. And normally i would get pissed for someone putting their nose in my business, but this time I didn't cause the songs are OK, and I will surely need help to make this list. I think 100 songs will do. But not just classics that are 10+ years old, but new things too!
That is why I want you all to give me as many songs as you can remember that are classic for you and that you can never get enough of. And I will now give you a few of my own that I ADORE!
LETS MAKE A LIST TOGETHER!
(and if you haven't noticed by now, I kinda love making lists...)
The songs in this list have no particular order. I just randomly added the song I like. There are a lot more on my list, these are just some I really like. So do comment and tell me what else would you add and what you think about these songs :-)
