30 day music challenge

30 Day Music Challenge: Day 2

It's day 2 of the music challenge! Today's song is a song you like with a number in the title. This one was a little easier than yesterday's. I was obsessed with both of these songs when they first came out and they're still in heavy rotation. 

24k by Bruno Mars

I was always a fan of Bruno Mars' live shows. Live band, dancing... he puts on a high energy show. But, I've never been much of a fan of his music until he did Uptown Funk with Mark Ronson. And then he dropped 24K. I love almost every song on the album. This is the one that fit the challenge.

1 Thing by Amerie

I fell in love with Amerie's music when she released her first single, "Why Don't We Fall in Love" during the summer of 2002. Then she followed up with the 2005 release of "1 Thing". The fusion of go-go and R&B will (almost) always win with me. Amerie and her then producer Rich Harrison make magic together.

30 Day Music Challenge: Day 1

The other day on Instagram (follow me @jsquaredhorn), Kadeem Hardison posted a pic with a 30 day music challenge. I decided to get in on the fun. Why not?

Day 1

This was actually harder than I thought it would. I must've had brain freeze because it took me at least 10 minutes before I could even think of one song that had a color in the title. Of course, after I posted the challenge on Facebook and everyone started posting other songs, I remembered all of the songs mentioned. I still came up with a good one, though. 

Orange Moon by Erykah Badu

One of my favorites. I remember hearing Erykah Badu perform this song live before the Mama's Gun album came out. I was mesmerized and I usually don't like to hear songs that I don't know. Erykah has been my favorite ever since she came onto the scene with On & On.

Come back tomorrow for Day 2!
