I was invited by Sandra from “A Momma’s View” to join the Song a day Challenge.
I’m not a fan of the challenges as I struggle to stick to the requirements.
But….I love Sandra and I love music. So, I’m going to give it a go.
Sandra knows I went to see Adele and how much I said I loved her in my recent post Adele in Sydney – but I have so many other songs that have won my heart, sorry Adele.
The rules are:
- Post a song a Day for five consecutive days
- Post what the lyrics mean to you ( optional)
- Post the name of the song and video
- Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge.
I’m going to post all five songs all at once and nominate five bloggers at once also.
Get ready to fall in love with some great songs.
Ed Sheeran – Save Myself.
I love this song, someone close to me called me and told me to listen to the lyrics. I related to it (minus the out-of-date prescription pills).
I often try to help people that wouldn’t do the same for me.
I must admit, this song helped me make a decision to take the time I need to save myself.
So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself
2. Ed Sheeran – Supermarket Flowers
This song was written about his grandmother when they were packing up the hospital.
The part of the song that gets me crying every time is:
So I’ll sing Hallelujah
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you’d be there holding me up
Spread your wings as you go
And when God takes you back we’ll say Hallelujah
3. Pentatonix – Hallelujah
I love Pentatonix and have for a while. This song gives me chills and I could listen to it non-stop… actually I have. Something about this song makes my heart sing.
4. Sia – Bird Set Free
This song is a real motivation boosting song. I really love it.
My favorite lyrics from the song are –
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not sing
But there’s a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive, oh
I’m not gon’ care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
And Lucky Last
5. Donna Taggart – Jealous of the Angels
Over time I’ve had to say good bye to loved ones and I constantly think about my grand mother. I feel this son puts it well – I miss her and wish I could have a chance to say a final goodbye. It reminds me of the day she passed, it was very sudden.
Surpise, Suprise…..This is another song with the word hallelujah in it.
I’m noticing a theme as I put this list together lol
Prayin’ you’d just walk back through that door
And tell me that I was only dreamin’
I hope you enjoy my selection of songs.
Now I get to nominate five lucky bloggers –
Until next time – Make it a great day xx
