The Daily Prompt | Commit To A Writing Practice

Write about the three most important songs in your life — what do they mean to you?
: Write this in 15 minutes and post it.
Time Started: 6:50pm

Let me first say, I do not like this challenge. How can I just pick a top three? And, the most important? So, they are the three most important songs in my life because they mean something to me, or they remind me of someone or someplace, or because I like the dance to them and how they make me feel?

And I say it again- ONLY three??

Here’s my starter list. I had enough time to at least link to some lyrics, so that after I hit post, I can read the lyrics and think about why these made my list! Some are self explanatory for me, some make me laugh or want to dance, and some take me down memory lane. Maybe after a little thinking, and more than this allotted time frame, I can narrow down to three!

  1. Amazing Grace – John Newton
  2. Respect – Aretha Franklin
  3. How Great Thou Art – Carl Gustav Boberg
  4. Mustang Sally – Wilson Pickett
  5. The Dance – Garth Brooks
  6. Proud Mary – Tina Turner
  7. Man in the Mirror – Michael Jackson
  8. What a Wonderful World – Louie Armstrong
  9. I Love Rock and Roll – Joan Jett
  10. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

I cannot wait to see what every in this daily post challenge posted. What songs am I not thinking of? And, why did these make the list today?

Working in music for 5 years probably made this challenge even more difficult, because there was a catalog of songs that I believed in and listened to every day. And that was huge a chunk of my life!

The twist to this one is to write within 15 minutes of uninterrupted silence, and post it immediately. It didn’t say we couldn’t come back and edit it!

Hope you enjoy reading my list of three plus songs!
