30 Day Music Challenge- Day 1: Your Favourite Song


A few days ago, I stumbled upon the 30 Day Music Challenge. It seemed like a fun little way to share a bit of one of my other loves obsessions, with all of you. As much as I love beauty, skincare and nail polish, I might just love music more. Maybe.

When I saw that this was labeled as a challenge, I thought, how can a little list of 30 songs be challenging? Well, when you love music, choosing only one song for each category is excruciatingly difficult. Like day one: Your Favourite Song. That in itself is crazy. How can you pick one song to be your favourite?




It took me some time, but I ended up with 'The Wind' by Cat Stevens. I've been listening to Cat Stevens for my entire life, all the way to the womb if you want the entire truth, and I love him to bits. 'The Wind' is the first track off of Teaser and the Firecat (1971) an album I've listened to more times than conceivably countable. I will stand by the fact that this song sounds so much better on vinyl, because the imperfections just make it so much better, but clearly I can't fit you all into my bedroom for a listen. It's a short, simple song, but it's simplicity is what makes it so beautiful. I apologize for the live version, the audio version had terrible sound quality, but at least this way you get to look at that gorgeous face. Cat Stevens was hottie in his day.

I'll be posting my selections every now and then, but if you'd like to join the challenge (it is seriously harder than you think!) here it is:
