A to Z Song Challenge: Z is for Zoom

Well, this is it.  The final song in the A to Z Song Challenge.  I had a blast.  I hope you enjoyed my picks.  I'm such a song/music person, I could go on for years sharing songs that have touched my heart. 

My pick for Z was easy.  The lyrics, the music, the memories make this an all-time favorite of mine.  Hope you enjoy!

A to Z Song Challenge: Y is for You're Still the One

We're almost at the end and, as usual, I'm torn.  But I'm not going to cheat this time.  I picked ONE song.  And I'll get right to it. This song is such a beautiful song.  Love it.

A to Z Song Challenge: X is for Xr2

Soooo... X sucks.  I decided to go another way. The song I chose is not a favorite song of mine.  BUT it is the song that goes to one of my favorite hustles (urban line dance).  I love to dance.  And I used to go to Hustle classes every Wednesday (First Family in the house!!).  I absolutely LOVE the B2H Hustle!  And that is the reason I chose this song. 

is for Xr2 by M.I.A.  and the B2H Hustle.

Check it out and try it at home.  Trust me, it's fun.

A to Z Challenge: W is for Whenever You're Around

So, I have another tie.  I just couldn't narrow it down.  I'll get right down to it. 

is for Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi AND Whenever You're Around by the incomparable Jill Scott

I love Jill Scott.  Love her.  She's a great storyteller and I can relate to her music on a personal level.  And Wanted Dead or Alive is my hubby's favorite and his birthday is tomorrow. I love the song too, but it's more a tribute to him. :)

A to Z Song Challenge: V is for Voyage to Atlantis

Anyone who knows me would know beyond a shadow of a doubt this song.  Not only is it my favorite "V" song, it's my FAVORITE song of all time.  My cousin even used it as my own special ring tone. 

I remember when I was a child and I heard this song for the first time.  There was something about it that made me sit up and listen.  It was love at fist listen.  But what I found that warm, summer day wasn't just the song, but the band.  The Isley Brothers is my all-time FAVORITE band.  I saw them in concert so many years ago, but it only cemented my love.  And when Ron Isley started this song... my friend could've knocked me over with a feather.  Love.  It.

A to Z Song Challenge: U is for Under the Bridge

There was no struggle with this letter.  I knew right away which song I'd choose.  So I'll just get right too it.
