Question of the Week: Question #5

I'm extra excited for today's question, friends! It's a two-parter, so look for Part II next week. In the meantime, feel free to email me (mellow1422 [at] aol) with your questions, friends! Today's question comes to us from an Anonymous poster, who asks...

What are your favorite songs?
“Alone” (Heart)
Key lyrics: You don't know how long I have waited/And I was going to tell you tonight/But the secret is still my own/And my love for you is still unknown/Alone
This pretty much sums up my entire non-relationship existence. And the whole bit about wanting to tell someone – tonight! – how you feel? Well, let’s just say it always felt like the Wilson sisters had stolen my teenage diaries and read all my exhaustive entries about Crush Boy (and we all know how that ended, don’t we?)...

“Catch The Wind” (Donovan)
Key Lyrics: For me to love you now/Would be the sweetest thing/twould make me sing/Ah, but I may as well, try and catch the wind.
Is it really so inconceivable to believe that I (little old me) could find love, be loved and be worthy of love? Sometimes it feels exactly like the wind – some eternal nothingness I’m chasing, always just out of my grasp.

“You Don’t Know Me” (Jann Arden)
Key Lyrics: Afraid and shy I let my chance go by/The chance that you might love me too
Yeah, the title pretty much gives this one away, doesn’t it? Have you ever arrived at that point where you suddenly realize you’ve just blown everything? All because you couldn’t open your mouth? Instead, you just sat there and let something that could potentially be great just pass you by.

“Invisible” (Taylor Swift)
Key Lyrics: And you just see right through me/But if you only knew me/We could be a beautiful, miracle, unbelievable/Instead of just invisible
I’ve always felt like my disability has made me the invisible girl in the room sometimes. And of course, there always happened to be a slew of pretty blondes, brunettes and able-bodied girls surrounding me – girls who didn’t have any scars, who didn’t have any sort of deformities. Or at least ones that weren’t visible anyway.

"When I'm With You" (Sheriff)
Key Lyrics: Baby, oh I get chills when I'm with you/Baby, my world stands still when/I'm with you/When I'm with you
There’s nothing more beautiful than a passionate ‘80s power ballad. I’ve always loved this song (and, of course, singing along to it too)...
What sorts of songs do you ABSOLUTELY LOVE? I’d love to hear about your own story behind the song! xoxo

P.S. Speaking of songs, look for some new lyrics this afternoon! :)

  1. Looks like I have some new music artists to check out! :)


  2. I love any and all Beatles songs, but my favorite is "Across the Universe." In a moment of 20-something weakness, I almost got the following lyrics inked on my foot: "Jai guru deva om...nothing's gonna change my world."

    I love that song so much that I walked down the aisle to it at my wedding :)

  3. Shannon, that's one of my favorite songs, too! :)

  4. I love I don't want this night to end- Luke Bryan, and If I Wanted Someone - Dawes.

  5. Wonderful song choices! Been "eyeing" your blog for a few days now! So glad I "found" you - such an inspiration! Hugs xxx

  6. This made me go and turn the music on! :)

  7. Ooh... music; I love talking about music. :)
    I'm pretty much a metal/hard rock kinda guy, although I do like other kinds of music, and I am a HUGE fan of the Wilson sisters. Ann can stand toe-to-toe with any guy out there, and more than hold her own. In fact, I'd go so far as to rate her as one of the all-time great rock singers(I'm pushing 60, so I think I can speak to this with some knowledge). Plus, I've always had a crush on Nancy. :)
    Anyway; my 5 favorite songs of all time, in no particular order:
    "Tom Sawyer" - Rush
    "Man in a Box" - Alice in Chains
    "Crossfire" - Stevie Ray Vaughan
    "Back in Black" - AC/DC
    "Eyes of a Stranger" - Queensryche
    An honorable mention goes to "Ah Leah" by Donnie Iris.
    So... there ya go. That's my list, and I'm stickin' to it.

  8. The Donovan song is my favourite one here.
    Thanks for the commment on my blog


  9. Probably my all time favorite song is Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. It's such a beautiful song and I always play it when I'm away from my loved ones. <3

  10. Here's one:


    I think you will like it.


    The video is also awesome...

  11. i'm a sucker for anything 90's/early 2000's. "wonderwall" by oasis, "she will be loved" by maroon 5, anything by TLC or destiny's child, and old school britney of course :) i'm actually still in love with britney haha!

  12. I remember being on a road trip with Erik (before we got together) and he played me the song "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers. He told me it was one of his favorites, and after we got home he gave me the CD. Two weeks later we started dating and the rest is history. : )

  13. I love the Donovan and Jann Arden songs! It really is amazing how music can speak to you!

  14. Thanks for answering!
    Probably my favorite song right now is Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) by Arcade Fire. I'm excited to check out your songs!


Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
