30 Questions About Music I Like

Posted by on Apr 30, 2013

This post is a bit of fun, as the British like to say. It started with this guy Lamarr Wilson who mentioned that he saw a Tumblr post of someone (he mentions the guy but didn’t link to it) who had 30 questions on music and that he wanted to answer some of them for his video post. He tackled 10 of them, doing a bit of performing for each of them as well. Then Brian Hawkins of Hot Blog Tips sent me a video of a lady named Tomeka Haywood who did a video response to Lamarr’s video.


I thought about doing a video as well, since I’ve been doing a lot of videos lately, but decided that I’d rather write down my responses to all 30 questions instead for two reasons. One, if I performed or even talked about all 30 of these questions that could take awhile, and I don’t feel like only answering the ones I like necessarily. Two, I’m not performing any of them, thus why do it as a video? I’ll get better use out of doing it as a blog post; at least I hope so.

This is the kind of thing that bloggers can do to have fun every once in awhile and add a bit of content to their site. Some might say it takes away from one’s niche but come on… what’s the niche of this blog anyway? So, here we go, with explanations if I’m in the mood, but expect a lot of songs involving Michael Jackson here.

1: A song you like with a color in the title

Little Red Corvette, Prince

2: A song you like with a number in the title

The One, Elton John

3: A song that reminds you of summertime

Dancing Machine, Jackson Five (came out summer of 1975)

4: A song that reminds you of someone you would rather forget about

Feelings, Morris Albert, although it’s the guy I’d like to forget about as well as the fact that such a lame song hit #1

5: A song that needs to be played LOUD

Get Down Tonight, KC & the Sunshine Band

6: A song that makes you want to dance

Shake Your Body To The Ground, Jacksons

7: A song to drive to

Walk Away, Donna Summer

8: A song about drugs or alcohol

The Piano Has Been Drinking, Tom Waits

9: A song that makes you happy

I’m using this one to answer the question “what’s my favorite song”, that being I Want You Back by the Jackson Five

10: A song that makes you sad

Sometimes It Snows In April, Prince

11: A song that you never get tired of

I Love The Nightlife, Alicia Bridges

12: A song from your preteen years

Sugar Sugar, The Archies

13: One of your favorite 80’s songs

Billie Jean, Michael Jackson

14: A song that you would love played at your wedding

The song I did play at my wedding as our first dance song, How Deep Is Your Love by the Bee Gees

15: A song that is a cover by another artist

Knock On Wood, Amii Stewart’s cover of a song by Eddie Floyd

16: One of your favorite classical songs

17: A song that you would sing a duet with on karaoke

I actually performed this song with someone at a wedding, Endless Love by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross

Charlie Brown by The Coasters

19: A song that makes you think about life

Man In The Mirror, Michael Jackson

20: A song that has many meanings to you

Keep The Faith, Michael Jackson

21: A favorite song with a person’s name in the title

Gloria, Laura Branigan (only because I already used Billie Jean lol)

22: A song that moves you forward

2 Legit To Quit, MC Hammer

A relatively new song, Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield

24: A song by a band you wish were still together

Remember The Time, Michael Jackson

26: A song that makes you want to fall in love

Oh, you suckered me into this one. Love these kinds of things. You’ve got a nice selection of tunes listed here. Poor “Feelings”–such a despised song that once seemed so loved.

I’m going to do this sometime in the summer–it’ll make a good summertime post. I’ll link to this and mention you when I do it. I’ve copied the questions, but deleted your answers so they don’t influence my answers.

This will be fun.

Good deal Lee; I’ll be checking it out when it does come through. As for that song… I hated it back then and I’ve stuck with hating it. Course I love You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone and most people would run from the room if it came on again. lol

April 30th, 2013 | 9:17 PM

I’m sure you probably remember “The Gong Show” on TV. Nearly every day someone sang “Feelings” and got gonged. It was a running gag on the show.

Yes I do; loved the Gong Show with Chuckie Baby and Mean Gene the Dancing Machine! lol

April 30th, 2013 | 9:58 PM

It took a while but I’ve put my list up linking to your post. Thanks for the great idea.

Well that took long enough. 🙂 I’m coming over to see it.

August 28th, 2013 | 8:48 PM

This was a FUN read! Let me throw you in a couple of mine:

#3: Welcome to Miami (Will Smith)
#4: Love is Here Now You’re Gone (Diana Ross and the Supremes)
#11: Africa (Toto) LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!
#29: Superfly (Curtis Mayfield)
#30: Beauty’s Only Skin Deep (Temptations)

Bev, the only one I don’t know is the last song by the Temptations. I know your #4 because the Jackson Five did it as well. Great stuff!

April 30th, 2013 | 9:19 PM

Beverley, I adore Toto’s Africa!

Btw, I can’t see how to post a comment in your blog.

Will do both. Comment here and say it is nice to get to know you a bit more and also do my own post on this list.

Good deal Rummuser; I’m going to be really curious to see your list & see how many songs I know.

April 30th, 2013 | 9:24 PM

Wow I wouldn’t picture myself that you like Tom Waits, I am such a huge fan of him, he is a musical genius..although I have to admit it that alcohol and drugs have played an important and significant role in his career…

Well B (your name’s too confusing for me to type), you probably don’t know me well enough to know my musical tastes, but suffice it to say that I was a music major in college so my tastes can vary. And I tend to believe that without at least the alcohol some of his songs might never have come about, such as The Piano Has Been Drinking. lol

May 2nd, 2013 | 12:39 AM


I liked your post so much and decided to do my own version. Hope you’ll mske it over and respond.

Great stuff Bev, other than that Foxy song; always hated that one. lol I can’t figure out how to comment on that new format, otherwise I’d have left a comment there as well; help?

May 3rd, 2013 | 4:13 PM

Man in the Mirror and Heal the World as well. Both make us think about life.
Good post, thanks for sharing.

It’s what I do sometimes Pitt; shake things up some.

May 3rd, 2013 | 4:18 PM

I’m not one for memes in my blog but I might do this one some time for ‘a bit of fun’ as we Brits say. Lol!

I never thought I’d see an Aerosmith song on a list of yours!
Val recently posted…Question timeMy Profile

May 4th, 2013 | 10:36 AM

I like Aerosmith Val, but this song was in the Armageddon movie, which I really love.

May 4th, 2013 | 2:37 PM

You’re better at this than I am Mitch, I could never come up with songs for all of those questions; I simply don’t have the memory for it. Even though I am familiar with most of those songs, I wouldn’t be able to come up with titles, much less the artist. I didn’t realize you did karaoke. Any chance we can get a video of that someday on your YouTube channel?

Brian, I don’t do karaoke, though I’ve been to the one club twice; I don’t see myself ever going again. However, I thought you knew I used to be a professional singer for weddings; I’ve certainly written about that here, and I was also a songwriter, sharing some of my copyrighted material here as well years ago. I’ve got some skills other than just writing, though most of them are rusty at this juncture.

May 5th, 2013 | 1:21 AM

Hey Mitch,

Thanks for sharing with us these lovely songs. I am a music enthusiast and to be honest, I like the choices you made since majority of it is what I also like to hear. Come to think of it, making such a list of questions is good for my musical evaluation.

Then give it a shot Farrell, and let us know when you’ve done it so we can stop by to take a look.

May 7th, 2013 | 12:36 AM

I just wanted to thank you again. I enjoyed your list! Wow you did all 30! Very Cool!! I also love the song I Love The Nightlife.

May 7th, 2013 | 2:09 AM

Tomeka, it’s a great song and one of the ringtones on my phone. lol

May 7th, 2013 | 6:20 PM

I like the music you like. You’ve wrote another excellent post Mitch. I must admit that I’ve liked different kinds of music during different periods of my life. Never been too much of a fan of any band, just some songs that usually are less known from not so popular bands, that usually perform life somewhere in a bar or restaurant.

May 20th, 2013 | 9:59 PM

Carl, I think if I had to answer this questionnaire every 5 years half of my answers would change, but some are hard wired into my psyche. I doubt there’s no one that doesn’t have at least one song they love.

May 21st, 2013 | 12:32 AM

I like the music you like. You’ve composed another incredible post Mitch. I should concede that I’ve preferred various types of music amid various times of my life

August 6th, 2016 | 1:19 PM

Thanks Manpreet. Most people change up on music depending on longevity and how music either changes or stays the same.
