scraMbled - Music

If you haven't figured out by now, music is an incredibly important part of my life. Yes, I know, some people cannot stand country, but one of the reasons it's my favorite genre is that it's main emphasis is on the lyrics. I'm of the belief that lyrics are what make the song. Yes, I listen to classical too and enjoy the occasional instrumental, but most country songs are actual stories. And with being a music lover, I've also been known to be a very emotional person. So I figured I'd make a page to list some of my favorite songs and what they mean to me. I may or may not actually put the lyrics up on here... once I figure out the legality of doing so.

Mutable Favorites

Maybe I have an all-time favorite song, but usually I hear one or two on the radio that end up getting stuck in my head for the next couple of months (thanks, Clear Channel programming). Here, I'll list my last couple of current favorites of the month/week/day.* Maybe I'll put the old ones on a separate page... or else probably just file them around this page.
*Or per year, since I haven't updated this since 2008...

Barbershop - fka S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A.

I am a proud member of the group formerly known as the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America. Although I haven't actually sung in a quartet or chorus for many years, I still enjoy listening to barbershop music, and here are some good names to get started.

Did I miss any good ones? Let me know!

Emotional Songs

Yes, I have been known to tear up at a good movie or song from time to time... my wife thinks it's cute. I don't ever cry like a baby, mind you (at least, not that I'll admit), but there are some songs that "tug on my heartstrings." Some, I agree may be on the cheesy and even unrealistic side. But I try to listen to the music as if it's a true story that's happening right in front of me.

Changed my mind on favorites last on January 24, 2009. Wait. That's not right. Frozen came out in 2013. Well, I'll probably update this again soon, and then I'm sure I'll update this date...
Nah. It's 2016, and I like that statement, so it'll remain.
In other news, added some link widgets in 2021... maybe they'll stay working; maybe they'll just break someday...
