Weekly Song Challenge Week 27 – First Time for Me

This week, I was inspired by the choices so I decided to play along. I am a first time player and long time follower.

The Rules

  • Copy rules and add to your own post, pinging back to this post.
  • Post music videos for your answers to the musical questions.
  • Tag two people to participate!

1. Post a video of a song that’s perfect when you’re feeling overwhelmed:

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, I Won’t Back Down.

2. Post a video of a song you’d find humorous if it came on while making whoopie.

The only thing that popped into my mind because the Numa Numa viral video always makes me laugh — even now. Dragostea Din Tei, by O-Zone made famous as The Numa Numa Dance viral video made famous by Vlogger Gary Brolsm.

3. Post a video of a protest song.

Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee. Written by the amazing Buffy Sainte-Marie. I love the cover by The Indigo Girls:

Consider yourself tagged if you wish to play along. That’s what I did.

Lauren?

Tanya?

  1. Excellent choices. My first time was last week. I really enjoyed this challenge so much that I posted an entry for Song Challenge #25 as well. It’s always great to try something new. I’m trying to post entries for at least one new challenge every day.

    1. I was always a big Tom Petty fan. I never had any Buffy albums, but I always thought she was an amazing songwriter. I read a bit of her biography — she has led an interesting life.

    1. No, but music has been a big part of my life. I have read your entries for months now with great interest and thought I would take a swing at it. These were great prompts this week.

  2. I remember reading the book, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee as it was assigned by my 11th grade English teacher around the same time that song came out. There are a couple horrible parts of that book that will always be burned into my brain. So I’m surprised I don’t remember the song. Well, I’m thankful for both the book and the song. Thank you for sharing it. And of course,Tom Petty.

    1. JoAnn, so much of the history of our country is hard to read. I am sure that book would have been one such event. I am not sure I have the heart to read it.

      And yes! Tom Petty.
