30 Day Music Challenge

Ok so the new thing or the thing that has once again become popular on Facebook are those challenges where to see what people are like. Being  that i am a Avid facebooker i have fallen into the clutches of this 30 day music challenge along with 2 of my best friends. This challenge calls on you to post a song once a day for a 30 day period(see thats where the title comes from), but the catch is you cant just post any song you want on each day you have to follow the “Rules” and post a song according to the guidelines or the question that is posed for that day. For most people the questions are fairly easy(dont worry they will be listed soon) if you are a simple music novice. but if you are someone who constantly has the ipod or mp3 player on shuffle and have multiple genres of music that you listen to on a day to day basis i.e. a music enthusiast than these questions are not so easy. Being that I am a music enthusiasts it took me 20 minutes to pick out my song for the first day(hold on tight I am going to go through each of the 30 days and what i would select in a matter of moments we are almost there), which most people would find to be absurd because it shouldnt be hard to be like this is my favorite song right now. But being an enthusiast makes it hard to pick just one song like i feel like i settled even though i chose a great song. So now we get to the good part I am going to list each rule and give at least 5 songs i can answer each day with(this is going to be my cheat sheet because i cant keep wasting 20 minutes of my life trying to find 1 song out of 100’s of songs): p.s. all of my comments will be in Italic

The Rules(sorry i misquoted earlier they are not guidelines or questions but RULES):Each day Tag @30 Day Music Challenge along with that days question, a link from Youtube and a brief description/explanation for your choice.
