It is Day 2 of the 30 Days, 30 Songs! Challenge being hosted by Sarah from Art Expeditions, and therefore time for my next song pick.
I have been waiting for Sarah’s post because I often need a little inspiration from others before my brain clicks into gear. Sarah’s choice is Beautiful Day by U2. I hadn’t heard that one before, so I looked up the date it was released — 2000. That explains it. It was about then that I gave up on popular music. It might have had something to do with being so exhausted from raising children. Quality may have been an issue too (disco was dead!). However, I’m still inspired by Sarah’s U2 theme, so I am going to stick with a variation on that theme.
One of my all time favourite songs is I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For. The song was written by U2 and first released in 1987, but it was not until I heard The Chimes’ version of the song, that it really became an anthem for me. I am slightly conflicted, but only slightly, because I’ve already posted this song for a blog challenge. However, you can never have enough of this song. Trust me, you can sing the melody and harmonies at the same time. Sing it with me.
It is not too late to join the Challenge. Click here to create a pingback to Sarah’s Day 2 post.
