So on Facebook they have these two music challenges that you can participate in called the “30 Day Song Challenge” and the “30-Day Song Selection Spectacular“. I have liked both of these with the intention of doing them, but never really taken the time to do so. So as part of my new blog I and going to tackle both of them. I think I’m supposed to do them for 30 straight days in order, but I think I will jut slowly work on them as I see fit. I will try to post a YouTube video for each selection I choose and will do my best not to post the same some twice. Feel free to post comments about my selections as well as song you would have chosen for each topic. Wish me luck!
The following are the topics I will be attempting:

day 02 – your least favorite song
