Day #64 of 365 
Song: Everybody Knows
Artist: Concrete Blonde
Album: Pump Up the Volume

Concrete Blonde is one of my favorite artists and “Everybody Knows” was one of the first songs I heard from them, as well as “Joey”.  In the early ’90s, I was also in love with Christian Slater and Pump Up the Volume was a movie I watched a lot on repeat.

Day #65 of 365 
Song: Lost in the Shadows
Artist: Lou Gramm
Album: The Lost Boys Soundtrack

Another soundtrack movie and another of my absolute favorites. The Lost Boys is one of my favorite movies of all time. And I think this soundtrack might be my favorite soundtrack of all time too. It has so many amazing songs on it, and this one is definitely one of my favorites!

Day #66 of 365 
Song: Mic Drop
Artist: BTS
Album: Love Yourself: Her

My intro to K-pop was Blackpink, who I also really like, but BTS is my favorite K-pop artist. They have so many great songs, but “Mic Drop” has such a fun chorus to sing along to it had to make my countdown. 

Day #67 of 365 
Song: Back to Black
Artist: Amy Winehouse
Album: Back to Black

I love Amy Winehouse’s voice. She had the most unique sounding voice. The entire Back to Black album is amazing but the title song is definitely my favorite. Amy’s version of “Valerie” is also another of my favorite songs from her. 

Day #68 of 365 
Song: Wanted Dead or Alive
Artist: Bon Jovi
Album: Slippery When Wet

This was one of my favorite bands, albums, and songs from the ’80s. Bon Jovi was also the first rock concert I went to when they came to South Florida with their Slippery When Wet tour in the late ’80s. It was awesome!

Day #69 of 365 
Song: With You I’m Born Again
Artist: Billy Preston & Syreeta
Album: Late at Night

I have quite a few duets on this countdown and this song is definitely one of my absolute favorites of the bunch. I love this song! And Billy Preston is one of my favorite soul singers. He will show up again later on the countdown

Day #70 of 365 
Song: The Heart of Dixie
Artist: Danielle Bradbery
Album: Danielle Bradbery

I really like Danielle Bradbery’s voice and the lyrics of this song make me want to sing along at the top of my lungs, which I do especially when I’m driving around town.
