So every once in a while I post about a few of my favorite things (insert Julie Andrews and those little hooligans dressed up in old curtains, singing loudly here)...and since today I have music on my mind, it's a musical favorite things post -- one that I hope y'all have fun with, too, because it's filled with earworms. Don't worry, we're not going to the bad side of the earworm, these are the songs you just can't not sing along with...and if they get stuck awhile, it's okay.
Written primarily because I've had the Mamma Mia soundtrack stuck in my head for...oh, the past 48 hours. No reason. Haven't watched the movie or listened to the soundtrack in ages. It's just there. In my head like the earworm it is. Dancing Queen is fading into Money, Money, Money as I write this. And, being the kind soul I am, I'm sharing. bwahahahaha! So here are a few of my favorite songs:
3. (and not just because it's in my head right now) Honey Honey ~ Mamma Mia: I was too young to get ABBA the first time around, so in my head, this isn't a cover...and neither is the original. I love 'em both equally, but I have to admit the movie version is the one I hear most often in my head. What I like about this song is the end, when she is standing on the balcony and her voice gets softer...and you know, she's not thinking about a love affair. What she wants is to put a face to a person who has been missing from her life for a long time. Play the clip below, you know you want to:
1. Whenever, Wherever ~ Shakira: Okay, you guys got me. I'm a pop girl. If I'm not listening to country, it's pop, and I'm good with that. I love the beat of this one - my feet start tapping and pretty soon I'm be-bopping around the house. I just can't sit still when Shakira comes on...and here's your clip:
There you have it: 3 of my favorite earworms...now, spill, which songs always make you get up and dance (and sing along with that hairbrush-microphone), even if they do get stuck in your head...for just a little while?
