What's Your Song?

I can't sing.

Not even a little bit.

But, music speaks to me.

Certain songs take me right back to a memory from long ago. Other songs make me cry every time I hear them.

And then there are songs that make me smile, make me sing, make me dance.

So, I'm joining in with Goodnight Moon today to share one of those types of songs.

With lines like "Sunshine gonna wash my blues away" and "the only worry in the world
is the tide gonna reach my chair," I am loving "Knee Deep" by Zac Brown Band. If you haven't heard it before, take a listen:

You have to smile when you listen to it, don't you?

What song are you loving right now?

I can't sing at all! The only time I sound "really good" is when I am in my car all alone with the music so loud I can't even hear myself.

I'm kind of lovin' anything Josh Turner right now...

I have been loving Moneygrabber by Fitz and the Tantrums and Uncharted by Sara Barellis. Both great summer songs :)

Great pic.

The song that makes me smile the most is Ayer by Flo Rida. Only because my kids sing it with all the wrong words and they go back and forth, sharing the turn at singing and it just absolutely makes me smile.

I am not familiar with Zac Brown band. I know, what's wrong with me? But that is a fun song! I do love Kir's choices above. Those are 2 of my favorite songs right now. I can't really think what my feel good song is right now. I know this sounds weird but I love belting out Rolling in the Deep by Adele. Paige loves to sing it along with me too! It gets all of my frustrations out. I guess that could be my feel good song. I swear that it is always on the radio here. Bulletproof by La Roux. is a good song too. I did a dance in a vlog once to it. =)

I feel like I have the same connection to music. It can make me so happy or make me cry. I am not too bad of a singer but really I wouldn't care if I wasn't! LOL!

ZBB could sing the phone book and it would make me happy! I love them.

I *still* adore the song Toes -- especially since my 4-year-old sings it as "toes in the water, ANTS in the sand." ;)

I love Zac Brown Band. They always have great summer songs. I'm also loving Jason Aldean's "Dirt Road Anthemn." But my all time favorite song is Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light".

We turn music on every morning once we are all up. It seems to start the days off in a much happier place.

I love that song too. I am wondering why I don't have ANY ZBB on my ipod. Must fix that.
Currently I am listening to a lot of Pat Green. My favorite being "Wave on Wave.
When I am feeling low I listen to Natalie Merchant. I think she got me through my divorce a few years back!!

I cannot sing either. But I love me some Zac Brown. I can't pick just one song, but I'll tell you Chicken Fried, Water by Brad Paisley, and You are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne.

I can't sing either, but I love to. My MIL is always saying that when her and I get to Heaven (um, hopefully not at the same time)that the first thing we're going to do is join a choir, because everyone makes fun of how poorly we sing!

I love the Zac Brown Band though- esp. that song!!

I bought the ZBB CD shortly after seeing them in concert. It hasn't left my car and anytime someone gets in I make them listen to the song and say isn't this the perfect summer song?!

Hmmm...I'm totally loving Jason Aldean's newest song, but can't for the life of me think of the name of it. The one where he sings about riding the dirt roads? It gives me a little piece of home in Alabama since we are so FAR away from anything resembling a dirt road.

I couldn't sing on tune if my life depended on it! I am so off key!

I have never heard that song before...made me want to escape to a tropical beach! :)

I have been loving Lada Gaga lately...her songs are just so peppy and I need that. I love Pink's Perfect (I think that's the name)...it speaks volumes to me right now!

I am with you girl on the songs taking you back. I love that I can relate so much to a song. Might not know the words completely but the song takes me back immediately.

My guilty pleasure is The Monkees. Now before you start singing: Last Train to Clarksville or Hey Hey We're The Monkees, you need to find and give a listen to, "Sometime in the Morning." *Swoon*

I LOVE this song! Jimmy Buffett is my all-time FAVE. And I'm falling in love with ZBB as well. We actually took our (at the time) 4-year-old daughter to a JB concert last year. Yep. :) Cowboy in the Jungle by JB is probably my favorite of his...if I had to pick one. :) I'm sort of a black sheep, so it fits me at most times in my life.

I love ZBB's "Where the Boat Leaves From." That's my happy song.

My husband likes to annoy me by singing the Chris Brown song, "Look at me now. I'm getting paper" song when it comes on the radio. I think it's stupid, but him singing it makes me laugh, especially when he changes the words, "Look at her now. Emily's eating paper." Which is often true...

What a great song. Speaking of getting through, that's just a bubble of a song to help you make it through these days. Crank it up and dance around to this in the kitchen. And it sure makes it that much better that Jimmy's crooning along.

Hmmmm....the pressure to think of a really hip & current song that is speaking to me is almost too much! Will you be too annoyed with me if I tell you that I like to listen to the Country Oldies station a lot? Today I heard "The Dance", an Anne Murray song (something about dancing in the Milky Way) and "The Bluest Eyes In Texas" and sang along with all three. Love, love, love old country. :)
