I have noticed several blogs doing different little memes where they list their top 10 favorite songs, CDs or even retro albums. I am always amazed by these lists. Most of the participants start off by saying something like "I don't know how I can narrow the list down to 10." Arlee over at Tossing it Out is doing a blog hop where the folks pick 15 albums they couldn't live without, assuming their desert island provides the technology to play them. I am amazed by this.
Here it is folks, I think I would be hard pressed to name 10 individual songs let alone albums, cds or artists. I don't know how it happened but I have somehow grown up without music playing even a supporting role. My mom liked quiet and we NEVER had a radio on in my house so I guess I missed out on a formative introduction. I remember once my Dad bought a collection of classical records "The Masters" or something like that and for about a month we listened intermittently to Rachmaninoff, Beethoven, Mozart and others but soon that was once again replaced by silence.
As I write this I realize I may be danger of passing on the same malady to my daughter. Except for the "Music Together" (A program I take Jessie to on a semi-weekly basis) CDs which we play on an endless loop in the car, I almost NEVER have music on in our home. I don't own any CDs and at the moment don't even have an iTunes account!
I think this needs to change! And as a way to end my Inquiry week, I ask you dear readers if you wouldn't mind sharing five songs you think I should absolutely listen to and perhaps even share with my girl. It is time for me to begin my musical education and I think little J will have fun going along for the ride. Just maybe,with your help, the next time I see a favorite song meme I might actually have one or two of my own!
In other inquiry week news, I would like to say, as usual I didn't complete all of my initiatives but I did thoroughly enjoy some of inquiries so all in all that nets me a 6 out of 10 for the weekly score and I'll give myself 4 bliss boosts. Lately I have been really able to see how focusing on my different virtues has really been netting me more Bliss. It is really fun to see that playing my Everyday Game can really make a difference in my life!
Daily question: What Five songs do you think I should get to know?
Next post: Community week gets underway!
My 13 bliss virtues are joy, order, creativity, passion, whimsy, serenity, inquiry, community, romance, gratitude, moxie, humility, and surprise.
This week we are studying Inquiry. Next up is Community Week.
