It’s September, the start of a new month. Well, in mid-August, half a month too late, I came across one of those internet challenges. Being a music nut, I’m willing to take my chances with the data mining assholes and participate. For the month of September (plus October 1), I’m going to answer each of these with a blog post. Here’s the challenge:

Day 30: Song That Brings Peace

This song is claimed by US researchers to be the most relaxing song ever. Seriously, they warn you not to listen to it while driving.

If this isn’t “bringing peace,” I don’t know what is.

Day 29: Favorite Reggae Song

I’m tempted to cheat with this one, but fortunately for you I can’t. My favorite reggae song was a reggae version of Simon & Garfunkel’s Cecelia. It was recorded by a band called, if I recall correctly, Funhouse, and I think they were based in Charlottesville, Virginia. I can’t find the audio for it — certainly not due to a failure to search for it — and other reggae versions I’ve found pale in comparison. I could also go with some early Police, such as Roxanne, but no. I’m going to give you a song by a dedicated reggae artist.

We could all use some redemption.

That was cheesy. I take it back.

Here’s an obvious choice for a child of the 80s.

Great album.

Day 27: Song That Reaches

This is another ambiguous request. Reaches for what? I’m going to pick my runner up for day 16 because it mentions reaching in the title. I remember it being used in a US Army recruiting video.

This should get you fired up.

Day 26: Song About or by Mary

I am not a country music fan, but this song was the second-biggest hit from a phenomenal album, Come on, Come on. This woman couldn’t write bad music if you asked her to.

Passionate Kisses was the biggest hit, but I like this one better.

Day 25: Favorite Aaliyah Song

I don’t know a single Aaliyah song — I’ve never even heard of her — so I ran a search for “Aaliyah songs,” and the first one that came up was . . .

I don’t even know how to pronounce her name.

Day 24: A Song That is My Anthem

I’m not going to interpret “anthem” in a good way, but rather in a way that describes me as well as any song ever could (as I’ve discussed under unfortunate circumstances).

It’s not a perfect choice; I don’t smoke.

Another easy choice. From one of my favorite shows of all time, Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

I wish I could make the ladies sing.

Day 22: A Make-up Song

Oh, good gravy. Again, this is not my area. I’m such a disaster that making up is not something I often managed to accomplish. So, here’s a song that I really like from a band that I want to be somewhere on this list.

Does that work?

Again, we’re talking about things I barely understand, but here you go.

I’m sure most will agree with this one anyway.
