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 23: A Song That Mentions Candy

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?

Day 20: Song From When You Were 19

I turned 19 on May 17, 1987. This was the number one song. The song went to number one on May 16th, 1987, and stayed at the top of the charts for 3 weeks.

Have at it, data miners!

Day 19: Favorite Rap Song

Easy choice on this one.

I know, I know. Typical suburban white boy answer. At least it isn’t the Beastie Boys.

How trite would that be?

Day 18: Favorite Disco Song

Oh, yeah. Disco isn’t as bad as everyone says it is. While I’m not a dancer, there isn’t much music better suited for the modern dance floor, even though Disco “died” about 45 years ago. Here’s one from my 1st Edition AD&D playlist, which means it tugs at my memberberries. It’s as good a choice as any for this post.

I was so happy when I was allowed to buy this album.

Day 17: Song with Soul

Here’s a song from what I suspect is a horribly underrated artist. I was keyed into this song and artist when Guitar Magazine published sheet music for the song.

I wish I could say I ever had enough soul to do it justice, but I bet Robert would say, “Just do what you can and have fun with it.” He’s one cool cat.

Oooooo!!! Caturday reference!

This is also my favorite Metallica song.

Day 15: Favorite Spanish Song

I don’t have a favorite “Spanish” song, but this is my favorite “Spanish language” song, which has Mexican roots. I was first introduced to it while dining at the Alamo in Riverdale, MD before heading out to Arena Stage for a play. It was a regular stop for us on the rare occasions we went out to dinner, especially before going to Arena.

I will say that I have great love for Los Lobos’ version of La Bamba.

My dad occasionally sang La Cucaracha to us ever since that night.

This could have qualified for day 21, but I have other plans for that.
