My Life According To . . . Music Challenge







As I was perusing the blogosphere, I came across this cool challenge over at my dear friend, Shady's pad.   It apparently originated at Doglady's Den. The challenge is to answer a bunch of questions using song titles from an artist. (Has to be the same artist for all of them.) Shady did an awesome job with his. He inspired me to give it a try over here. So, let's see how I do. You guys can guess the artist as you read, and see if you're right. (For a lot of you, you'll probably get it on the first one.)


Are you male or female?


Uptown Girl


Describe yourself:


The Entertainer


How do you feel?


New York State of Mind


Describe where you currently live.


No Man's Land


If you could go anywhere, where would you go?


The Great Wall of China


Your favorite form of transportation:


The Downeaster Alexa


Your best friend is:


Piano Man


Your favorite color is:


Scandinavian Skies




What's the weather like?


Summer, Highland Falls


Favorite time of day?


This Night


If your life was a TV show, what would it be called?


Modern Woman


What is life to you?


All About Soul


Your relationships?


A Matter of Trust


Your fear?


I Go to Extremes


What is the best advice you have to give?


Honesty


If you could change your name, you would change it to:


Laura


Thought for the day:


You're Only Human


How you would like to die:  


Keeping the Faith


Your motto:


Get it Right the First Time


  And that is my life according to . . .





Billy Joel! One of my favorite recording artists!


Here's one of my favorite songs from him:  River of Dreams.


 


If you'd like to do the challenge, feel free to do so. It's fun!

  7. Hi, dear Sherry!

    Happy April Fool's Day, dear friend! You surprised me with this post, Sherry. I had no idea that you would be inspired by my post to the extent that you would want to take the music challenge yourself. I'm delighted with the result!

    I have quite a few Billy Joel songs on the soundtrack of my life. His music videos for "Uptown Girl" and "The Longest Time" were big hits with viewers of the MTV style station where I worked as a producer in the 80s. During that same decade, Joel's "A Matter of Trust" was one of the "anchor songs" of the NLP seminar series with which I worked as a trainer and I used the song in a 60-minute documentary program that I produced.

    You did an excellent job with the Music Challenge, dear friend Sherry. I am very thankful that we became friends after all those years of hesitation. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I don't think I've ever seen the videos for Uptown Girl and The Longest Time. I'll have to look those up.

      You produced at 60 minute documentary program? That's really neat! Is it available anywhere, where I can listen to it?

      I'm glad we became friends, too. You're an awesome blog buddy!

    2. The documentary was produced in 1987 for the NLP seminar series "Discover the Magic." I was a participant and later a trainer and videographer for the seminar program. The documentary followed 100 families from all over the U.S. and Canada as they gathered at a resort in Florida and took part in the week long seminar course which culminated in the metaphorical nighttime barefoot walk on fire. The documentary was never aired on television. It was instead distributed as a keepsake to all who attended the seminar so that they and their families could watch it the rest of their lives and relive their powerful experiences during seminar week.

      Thanks for asking, dear friend Sherry!

    3. Sounds like a great keepsake for the participants. Thanks for explaining!

  16. I agree with Chrys. You did very well coming up with songs as answers to the questions. Bravo! Unfortunately, I'd have troubles too, coming up with one artist's list of songs to be able to answer all those questions.

    1. Yes. I thought about using The Four Seasons, but I decided on Billy Joel.

  18. Wow Sherry, that is commendable... I am not sure if I could come up with that many songs by one artist... I do love Billy Joel but Bryan Adams is my favorite... This a very interesting concept xox

    1. I really liked Bryan Adams when I was a teenager. You should try the challenge and see if you can do it with Bryan Adams' titles.
