100 Day Song Challenge – #100

“A song. Actually, not just “a song”. THE SONG.”

As with so many of the others, this prompt just annoys me. What? You want me to pick just ONE song? Of all songs that have ever been written? Pff.

When I started the list, over a year ago, I put this song at this number:

But I guess it could also be this one:

Basically, I refuse. Let’s call this “by one of your favorite bands (#4)” instead.

And with that, it’s time to say goodbye to this music challenge. Thank you, you were a great safety blanket this past year, and I don’t really know what to do without you.


100 Day Song Challenge – #99

A song “by one of your favorite bands (#3)”.

The reason I love Annika Norlin? Lyrics like these, they just crack me up:

And I know love will leave you all crooked
And I know he’ll start sleeping around
Or start listening to symphony rock
Or throw out the key and change the lock

Also, when googling for videos of this song, see how many covers there are? Almost all by women? Representation matters.

100 Day Song Challenge – #96

A song “you’ve seen performed live”.

Two of the first shows that really blew me away was when going to Umeå Open in 2005. First I saw Le Tigre and was all “omg!!!!” (and bought a t-shirt that I sadly had to throw away this year 😦 ). Then I saw The (International) Noise Conspiracy, and was equally impressed. (And obviously that’s what I told their singer when I saw him in a train in Sweden. My only celebrity sighting ever, and then most people didn’t even know who it was… He was in Refused damnit!)

100 Day Song Challenge – #95

A song “currently stuck in your head”. Well.

I started preparing this list when Lisa introduced me to this challenge, and at that point it was this song (just.. don’t watch this. just listen. they look ridiculous and the band name makes me cringe):

Right now I don’t have a song that i’m obsessed with, but I do like this one. It’s in Swedish and way too optimistic and upbeat for me, but what can I do?

“Och vi ska också glömmas bort, och aldrig talas om igen”

100 Day Song Challenge – #94

This challenge is coming towards its end and I will actually miss it! It’s been rather handy to have this as a back up when I can’t think of things or am too busy to prepare posts.

A song “from a really obscure band”. As always, we could have a discussion here about what makes something count as obscure, but whatever.

How about this little gem from 1978? 999 Me and my desire:
