A Song A Day: Day 2

Thank you to my friend, The Happy Quitter, who put me up (set me up) to participate in the A-Song-A-Day-Challenge.  Here are the rules in my friend’s words: “You post some of your favorite song lyrics for five days in a row, preferably with a video -if available. Then, you think about two bloggers who have pissed you off lately, and nominate them to participate as well. Just kidding! The chosen ones then have the choice and can take part -if they wish- or crush my little heart.”

Okay- I’m in my friend. I invite anyone in the mood to share some of their favorites and post them so we can all enjoy them too.

I listen to a lot of different music, always have. I grew up listening to folk and then “pop” music, rock, punk, new wave. I still enjoy listening to a variety of music, both old songs and new.

I have a playlist in my phone I use when I am out walking, one list is upbeat, another I call “quiet cool down” for the way home. On my upbeat list are few songs by the band Daughtry, an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. I love Chris Daughtry’s voice and one of the songs they sing that gets me moving is “Feels Like Tonight” It was released way back in 2006. There is nothing profound or deep about the lyrics, I like the beat and the crescendos that get me walking!

You, you got me
Thinking it’ll be all right you, you told me
“Come and take a look inside.”
You believed me, in every single lie
But I, I failed you this time
And it feels like tonight
I can’t believe I’m broken inside
Can’t you see that there’s nothing that I wanna do
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight, tonight
I was waiting
For the day you’d come around
I was chasing
But nothing was all I found
From the moment you came into my life
You showed me what’s right
And it feels like tonight
I can’t believe I’m broken inside
Can’t you see that there’s nothing that I wanna do
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight
I never felt like this before
Just when I leave, I’m back for more
Nothing else here seems to matter
In these…

  1. I always liked Daughtry, as well as David Cook. His song, “Come Back to Me,” fills me with both tears and awe. His raspy voice and unique style throughout his season made me just live his style. He doesn’t make as much money as others but he has what it takes to make me stop dead in my tracks and listen, Lisa.
