A Is For...

Welcome to the A To Z Challenge 2015.

My theme this year is music. Specifically music that I listen to at least fairly regularly and that falls in to these categories:

D - Can't help but dance to it
P - Panicked
S - Can't help but sing to it
S/C - Strikes a chord with me (no pun intended)
W - Wildcard

When it some to the “strikes a chord” category, I don't necessary relate or connect to that song but it still send a bit of shiver through me to listen to it. And I couldn't think of a way to describe all of that in one short phrase... so strikes a chord it is.


The number of songs will vary from post to post but I got a couple of them for you today:

After All - Michael Buble ft. Bryan Adams - S, S/C

This video does make it seem like they are singing to each other... which is fine by me I just wonder what their partners make of it.

(starts at 0.50)

American Pie - Don Mclean - S, S/C

I'll be honest I had no idea this song lasted quite so long - the version I listen to usually is about half the length of this... who knew? Obviously not me...

American Pie is in my opinion, one of the best songs ever written.

Excellent challenge theme, btw. :-)

Another A song that strikes a chord is At Last. I like Etta James' version best.
Elizabeth Hein - Scribbling in the Storage Room

Not a big fan of Bublé even though I am a Canadian (originally from Britain of course). I think he puts on a great show though. Not sure about American Pie, hear it so often.

Couldn't view the first video but I love American Pie. Great song! Shawn from Laughing at Life 2
