Days 17 & 18 #BlackMusicMonth #30DayMusicChallenge

June 18, 2018

I was going to say I missed posting yesterday because I fell asleep. While that’s half-true, it’s (obviously) not the whole truth. I fell asleep, yes, but I also spent all day overthinking my answer to the Day 17 prompt: The song you’d choose if your life depended on singing every lyric/adlib.

The obvious answer is “Vision of Love” by Mariah Carey, but I didn’t want to use that because it was also my answer for Day 3 (a song that makes you feel like you can sing). But, like I said on Twitter, just like Mariah does in the video, I sing allllll the parts. So. There you go.

My answer for Day 18 (A song that makes you feel warm and fuzzy) required some thought. And because I’m me, I have two answers:

1. “Celebration” by Kool & the Gang

2. “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone

Different tempos, different tones, both about gratitude and celebrating what’s right in front of you. ❤️

    Never heard that Nina Simone song either. Awesome, not that I expected anything else.
