Welcome to Week 8 of the Weekly Song Challenge! You’ll know the rules by now, and you can catch up on the last few weeks’ posts here. As always, if you’d like to get involved, feel free! Catch up from the beginning here!
1: Your Favourite Song by Any of These Artists: Elton John, REO Speedwagon, Aerosmith, Neil Diamond, Styx, Kansas, Bon Jovi
This was the first song I thought of when it came to these artists. I’m not sure what it is about this song, but I’ve always really liked it. I remember there was a movie back in the early 2000s called Drive Me Crazy – it was your typical teenage romcom and I think the only reason I loved it was because it had Melissa Joan Hart (aka. Sabrina the Teenage Witch) in it. Anyway, this song featured in the movie and even when I was a stupid 8 year old with no taste in music, I really loved it.
2: A Hit Song From the Year You Were Born
The first time I heard this song was probably when it featured in Mrs Doubtfire, but it wasn’t anything I particularly paid much attention to. Fast forward to nights at Propaganda (is Propaganda still a thing for students?) when I was at uni and this came on. Ever since then, every time I hear it, I just think “BANGER.”
3: A Song That What Was Popular the Year You Graduated From School
I remember being obsessed with this song when it first came out. This generally goes back to the tamer era of Gaga’s music, but even so, it’s a great song for getting you in the mood while you’re getting ready to go out. Gaga has of course released many songs since this that have most definitely topped it, but this generally was the first song that sparked my love for her.
