You Can’t Make Me But You Might Make Me Want To…Listen To This Song

I’m not looking for your favorite group, and for this post I’m not even looking for your favorite worship song. We can cover worship songs later….and maybe we’ll cover hymns later, too.

Right now focus your attention on what we Evangelical-types might call “secular” songs 😉 What is your favorite song?

What song can you not get out of your system and why not? Does it make you want to dance, cry or sing? Does it remind you of something or someone? Is it an amazing guitar riff or base line? Or does it just sound so good? Maybe if enough of you comment I could string together a rather eclectic playlist. I can call it my tea party playlist. Hee, hee.

    “Let’s Never Stop Falling In Love” by Pink Martini. It’s a fun, whimsical tune that never fails to make me want to dance!

    I like the “you call me, Sugar” line in the Pink song 🙂

    I have to admit that I liked Fireflies for a few days, haha…it was a really catchy beat, and I’m a big rhythm guy.

    Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody always intrigued me. I think it’s a genius song as far as the music goes.

    Just to name a few examples. I do actually mostly listen to Christian/worship music, just because the lyrics are edifying for me.

    Right now it’s I Love You (Say Hey) by Michael Franti. Just love it!
    And… I’m Yours by Jason Mraz

    Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus – I didn’t know it was by Miley until much later. Suffice it to say, I was sorely disappointed (re: her Asian eyes “scandal”) but the song’s so dang poppy and fun! It makes me wanna throw it all to the side and start dancing like it’s my last day on earth 🙂

    Pale Shelter by Tears for Fears.
    Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd.

    “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd. The music is lovely, and the lyrics are among the most beautiful and haunting poetry I’ve ever heard in a song. It deeply spiritual and caught me completely by surprise in my car one afternoon as I was preparing for my first overseas mission trip.
