Top Ten Countdown - Music Blogfest

I love the idea of sharing music with others, but narrowing it down to ten songs was almost impossible. I ended up choosing the ones that evoke emotion in me, the ones that bring back memories of good times. I hope you enjoy them.

Here are my songs, in no particular order. Click on the title to watch the video on You Tube.

1 - Follow Me - By Uncle Cracker
I just love music that sounds like I should be dancing on the beach. My dream vacation would be to spend a few weeks in the Bahamas.

2 - Lullaby For a Stormy Night - Vienna Teng
I like anything by Vienna Teng, but this one is my favorite. It brings comfort to my heart.

3 - Wherever You Are - Laava
Ya know. Sometimes I just like a song because it makes me happy. This one does that for me.

4 - Just Got Started Lovin' You - James Otto
Because I'm a romantic at heart. A girl can dream, can't she.

5 - Hey Ya - Outkast
 This was my first taste of Outkast and it just makes me want to get up and dance. Love a good beat.

6 - Fireworks - Katy Perry
This one inspires me to open up and put myself out there, to share my talents with the world. For someone who grew up with low self-esteem, I consider this my wake up call.

7 - Storm (Live Version) - Lifehouse
For when I'm feeling down and need to get in touch with my feelings. 

8 - Just a Dream - Nelly
Because I love to dream. Why else would my blog be named Day Dreamer?

9 - In the Arms of the Angels - Sarah McLachlan

10 - Candle In the Wind (Live version sung at Princess Diana's funeral) - Elton John
I remember how I felt when I heard about Diana's death and this song brings back those feelings and makes me miss her all the more. She was a wonderful lady and the world is a better place because she was in it.

  6. Love Lifehouse and Uncle Kracker. Need to go listen to a few of your picks. I'm sure I'll think they rock. Fellow high desert dweller then? I'm in Central Oregon.

  7. Oh man, "Lullaby for a Stormy Night" and "Storm" would probably be on my list, too. I've listened to both of those countless times.

  13. Don't know most of the songs here and not overly familiar with the artists. "In The Arms of an Angel" is a very beautiful song.

    Tossing It Out

  14. Fantastic list! In the Arms of the Angels makes me cry - I can't listen to it now without picturing that ASPCA commercial and all those poor animals. :-(

  15. Great variety here! I'm sneaking over here from the Practice Room.... :)

  16. I'm having a great time looking at everyone else's lists - and I'm impressed with everyone who really managed to narrow it down to 10!

    I wish I was on the beach right now...
