SONGWRITING MONTH DAY 19: A Song You Once Loved

PROMPT: Learn a song you liked before you turned 13 years old.

I’m having a good time remembering the songs I used to like as a kid.  Some of them, like Bryan Adams’s “Everything I Do, I Do It For You” I consider today to be so awful that I laugh at the thought of them (sorry if you’re still a fan).  Mostly, I just liked Broadway musicals–The Secret Garden, Les Miserables, and the Phantom of the Opera in particular. When I was too little to know what I was listening to, I had a thing for Paul Simon’s entire Graceland album.  So I had some good taste built in me. Also, I remember being obsessed with the song, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”

SONG OF THE DAY: Dead

The first band I ever loved (and there is a chance that it was the first band you ever loved, too–) was They Might Be Giants.  Good God, I felt so cool listening to They Might Be Giants.
