the faves… again

listening to

my jams

when writing my post on my all time favorite songs, my plan was to have a link to all of them so you could hear the goodness for yourself. so i finally did it. i am going to admit that it was really hard. i knew starting this task at 10:00 at night was not going to allow me to listen to the entirety of each song. can you imagine, hearing that first little bit of one of your favorite songs and then having to move on. it was such a tease, but i do hope you enjoy them.  here is a link to the post, so you do not have to go searching for it yourself. just click on the name of the song (its in green) and it takes you to a youtube. yes some of them are super random videos.

My Top Twenty (One)

All Time



on a late night long drive home from visiting my parents michael and i were trying to entertain ourselves (keep ourselves awake) so we played a “game” where i would play my all time favorite songs and he would see if he knew them.  he was quite surprised that i even knew some of the songs, much less that they were on my top favorite list.  i know you have had the question who is your all time favorite band or if you could only listen to one band the rest of your life who would it be?  i do have certain bands/singers i love and then i have some songs i love that happen to be the only song that i really really like by that artist.  while coming up with my top twenty i had multiple songs from a few artists and those would be my faves in the artist category (bob marley, coldplay, jimi hendrix, the beatles)  all time favorite, i always have to go with coldplay.  i love almost everything they do, rush of blood to the head is my favorite album ever and coldplay was my all time favorite concert, so they get the fave stamp.  here is a list of my top twenty one (sorry sometimes you can not make cuts) favorite songs ever.  i had to put them in alphabetical order just so one did not seem more important than another.
