The 100 Day Song Challenge - Days 1, 2 & 3

I saw this on FB not long ago and thought why not give it a try. Gotta keep blogging about music more often!

So this 100 Day Song Challenge is nothing too complicated, let´s see how it will go and if I´ll have the patience to proceed to the 200-400 challenges XD

Day 1 - Day 01: A song you know all the lyrics to. 

Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit

I actually covered this one in a small acoustic performance with 2 lovely people, back when I went to a jewish related summer camp in Boston right after finishing high school. That camp was an amazing experience, and singing the song was a blast!
I´ve first heard it as a Cruxshadows cover and disliked it a lot, but then was really satisfied by the original of course :)

Day 02: A song from the first album you ever bought. (what was the album?)

Me? Buying an album?
Just kidding. I really didn´t buy a lot of albums, not to mention that my first ever album was given to me as a birthday present.
Yet my first ever bought album was Green Day´s American Idiot, back when I used to hear classical and baroque music only due to my professional involvement with it, as a recorder player. I was sort of a classical music dork, you can say that. I knew nothing about modern punk rock music at the time (except for Jrock and Visual Kay, I was an anime freak) nor was I alternative, but I´ve really wanted to give it a try. I think I was like 14 or something...

Obviously, I cannot look this album in the eye anymore ;)

Day 03: A song that reminds you of a night out. (when was it and where?) 

Back in Israel we had only one goth club where we lived - The Dmusic, which is no more. But when Boris and I went to it´s EBM and Dark Electro parties, which were the only goth parties we knew of, there was one night when the local DJ played a song by request, and the reaction of the crowd really impressed us, and so we liked the song from the first moment we´ve heard it.
And although many songs remind us about going out to the Dmusic, this one in particular stands out, because it had been our party song for a long time.

Grendel - Soilbleed

This sure was fun, I think that you´ll see a lot of this challenge´s posts. 

Can you think of a song for the first 3 challenge questions? You are more than welcome to write them in the comments :)
Now I shall start making some delicious waffle, ice cream, whipped cream and melted chocolate desert for Boris and me!
Have a nice weekend everyone!

  1. That's a very fun challengeI liked the no 59, about karaoke. He he, something difficult to sing, I would have choose :D..in falsetto.

    1. ha ha XD I can´t imagine what would I sing as a karaoke song, probably grindcore...

  2. lol there's a challenge dedicated to ABBA? lol good luck with that one! I remember seeing a video of white rabbit...i think the band was on a late show or something...and was absolutely spellbound by the original singer. she wasn't flashy or delivered showmanship but the she didn't need to "sell" the song at all, because come on, the song is awesome. I couldn't look away. I'll answer the questions! 1) I'm terrible at remembering anything, but it would have to be Creep by Radiohead. 2) tragic kingdom by No Doubt way back in '95 or ''96. 3) euro techno (they've got like 5 sings that they keep remixing) always reminds me of heading out to the dance clubs with my sister who'd drive and blast the stuff.

    1. I actually happen to find a few ABBA songs really nice, back when pop music had a soul :)
      Graca Slick is an amazing singer indeed, her voice is insane!!!
      Oh right, I do remember all Creep lyrics! And probably some other teenage classics. thanks for answering the questions!

  3. Oh man, I love Jefferson Aeroplane's White Rabbit! I do need to start blogging about music more myself, but I think this challenge is a bit long for me. ;)

    1. You can pick several questions you like most a do a blogpost about them :) I personally don´t know other challenges. there must be others for sure
