So…My friend Heather has been doing this here list for a few weeks now. I have to admit that I’m a lot like her in that this is likely not going to be done in anything remotely resembling 30 days, but it does give me some quick fodder to actually put some content out on the site.

The whole point is that you have this list of 30 different music based topics you’re supposed to write about. Day 1, for example, is your favorite song.

I hate this question. With a passion. I don’t know that I have a favorite song. I have favorite songs of the moment. When you ask me what my favorite song is the answer that comes to mind wouldn’t be the same answer I’d have given you six months ago, and it probably won’t be the same answer six months from now. So telling you what my “favorite” song is becomes kind of a problem.

That said…

When I REALLY think hard about it, I’m probably going to have to go with “Doctor Worm” by They Might Be Giants. See, when Alex was very young this was one of his favorite songs. He made me play it for him ALL the time. He loved it so much that I actually took him to see They Might Be Giants when he was probably about four years old. He spent most of the concert on my shoulders, and when they finally played “Doctor Worm” he absolutely freaked out and commenced to doing some serious “dancing” while perched up there.

Needless to say I was sore for weeks.

There are a LOT of wonderful songs in my life, but that one always makes me smile and evokes a flood of wonderful memories. So, for now, I’ll go with it as my favorite song.
