Day 23 - My Favourite Song
You can't ask a musician to pick a favourite song!! Well at least not me! I have loads and they change all the time!! I have very varied tastes and like some pop, classical, jazz etc. I rarely like everything by one artist and songs become favourites because of the melody or the words generally both. So... here goes with a few favourite songs....
Extraordinary by Mandy Moore
I discovered Mandy Moore when a film she was in called 'A Walk to Remember' was recommended to me. Later we were watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and she sang this song to a camp full of disabled children. It was very moving.
Songbird by Eva Cassidy
I love this song! it has such a beautiful melody
Halo by Beyonce
I have loved this song from the first time I heard it!
Defying Gravity from 'Wicked' and yes I prefer the Glee version!
I love this song because it is inspiring me to take that leap!
One Step At A Time - Jordin Sparks
I love this song, again because of the words really speak to me and where I am right now. But I have to say I also love the dress Jordin is wearing! I have even bought a dress thats similar! hehe
ok so now for a change of style....my favourite classical pieces. In classical it is all about the melody! The prettier the better. I love tinkling Piano pieces, the rich sound of the flute and the soulful classical guitar. Lets hope I can find my favourites on you tube!
The Banks of Green Willow by George Butterworth
I listen closely but when the flute takes the melody I stop what I'm doing altogether and just listen! Why the flute bit? well it's pretty but also I play the flute! Not sure what the flute sounds like? My favourite section is about 4.30 mins into the piece.
Elizabethan Serenade by Ronald Binge
I love the tripping melody of this piece and it lifts my spirit!
Pachelbel's Canon in D
I've loved this piece since I was a child and have never gone off it! This is played her on the instruments it was written for.
Well there are plenty other songs I could add here but I think I'd better stop now! I hope you have enjoyed listening to my selection.
