The 30 Day Song Challenge: Day 8

Today’s category is…

A Song That You Know All the Words To.

Staff Picks:

Kevin Coyne: “My Way” – Frank Sinatra

There’s gotta be a thousand songs I know all of the words to, but I’ll pick this one because it took me a while to anticipate all of the odd rhymes with “my way”, most especially the line about “each careful step along the byway.”  Plus I’m just going through a big Sinatra phase these days.

Leeann Ward: No Selection

When I was a kid, I was great at memorizing words, because I’d sing along with songs all the time. Somewhere in my early adulthood, however, I stopped singing around people, therefore, stopped singing along with songs as much. I don’t have a dramatic reason that I can pinpoint for not singing in front of people anymore (I can carry a tune pretty well, actually.), but I do know that not doing so has limited my ability for memorizing words to songs. This is the long way of admitting that I no longer know all the words to a song without having the song playing. Sad, isn’t it?

Dan Milliken: “Natalie’s Rap” – The Lonely Island featuring Natalie Portman

This 2006 SNL classic casts recent Oscar winner Portman as a staggeringly foul-mouthed gangsta rapper. A Dan’s-car staple.

Tara Seetharam: “Any Man of Mine” – Shania Twain

…right down to the shimmying, shaking and earthquake-making.
