A to Z Song Challenge: C is for Careless Whisper by WHAM

Thanks for riding with me on this trip down song memory.  C was a bit of a struggle for me because there were so many songs that I could pick.  BUT I loved 80s music and WHAM was one of my favorite groups. 

I can recall the first time I heard this song and I played it constantly.  Back then, I didn’t have a CD player on an MP3 player so I was forced to get my tape recorder out and actually try to catch this song on the radio so I could record it.  Needless to say, those were pretty crappy recordings but they got the job done. LOL 

So here it is…

And I’m never gonna dance again, guilty feet I’ve got no rhythm….
is for Careless Whisper

A to Z Song Challenge: B is for Be Grateful

is for Be Grateful by The Hawkins Family

God has not promised me sunshine 
That’s not the way it’s going to be
But a little rain, mixed with sunshine 
A little pain makes me appreciate the good times.

These words have gotten me through many hard time in my life, especially recently with the passing of my Mother.  The words to the song urge us to be grateful in everything.  Things could definitely be worse.

A is for Adore - An A to Z Challenge!

Fellow BOB author, Empi Darko, came up with a brilliant A to Z challenge for the month of May.  And I’ve decided to join her in listing my favorite songs, from A to Z. 
Music has always been a great love of mine.  I identify themes in my life by songs—every act, every feeling, every memorable moment was accompanied by a song.  When I write, I always do it with music.  I create playlists to go along with every novel.  It’s an integral part of my creative process. 
So here is my A…

is for Adore by Prince.

One of my favorite songs by one of my all-time favorite artists.  What is your favorite “A” song?
