Day 20: The Last Song Alphabetically in Your iPod/iTunes

Zoot suit riot
throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot
Pull a comb through your coal black hair
Zoot suit riot
throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot
Pull a comb through your coal black hair
Blow Daddy!

Day 18: A Song that You Love But Rarely Listen To


I see a little silhouetto of a man,

Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?

Thunderbolt and lightning,

Very, very frightening me.

(Galileo) Galileo.

(Galileo) Galileo, Galileo Figaro

Magnifico.

By Queen

Day 16: A song that Has Made You Cry

It’s Not Over, It’s Not Finished
It’s Not Ending, It’s Only The Beginning
When God Is In It, All Things Are New
All Things Are New
I Know Its Darkest Just Before Dawn
Might Be The Hardest Season You Experience
I Know It Hurts, Won’t Be Too Long
You’re Closer Than You Think You Are
You’re Closer Than You’ve Been Before
Lead:
Look To The Sky, Help Is On The Way
It’s Not Over, It’s Not Finished
It’s Not Ending, It’s Only The Beginning
When God Is In It All Things Are New
All Things Are New

There are a million and one reasons why this song along with other Israel Houghton songs makes me cry. I figured the words of Israel’s song speak to a side of me that is in need of comfort. I have already found it interesting how when I am feeling overwhelmed and overcome with emotion certain songs move me to tears. And I’m not talking a tear here and there. I bawl to no end. The flood gates open it is hard to close them. Thankfully, it doesn’t happen all the time. It seems that it usually happens when I’m at church. Say what you will about Joel Osteen and his family, but when I go to Lakewood Church, I feel somehow at peace. The praise and worship period of service allow me to let go of the emotional stress I harbor day in and day out. At any rate, at least I can release what I am feeling and feel somewhat better after.
