30 DAY SONG CHALLENGE: DAY 8:


So, I’ve decided to do this facebook 30 Day Song Challenge (you can see previous days here)thing and I figured I’d do it here on ninebullets. Feel free to contribute your thoughts in the comments section. So, without further ado:

DAY 08: A SONG THAT YOU KNOW ALL THE WORDS TO:

There are lots and lots and lots of songs that I know all the words to….when they’re playing. Songs I can just outright recite the words to on command. Not so many if any but I do have a good story when it comes to knowing all the words to a song.

When I was a kid (thinking 8-10 range) I decided than I needed to know all the words to a song. At first, I tried to learn all the words to Hall & Oates “Private Eyes” but it was proving difficult since I didn’t own it so I set my eyes on a cong from the one album I owned at the time, Kenny Rogers, The Gambler. So I got out my little Emerson record player and went to learning.

It took about 3 days but I was eventually able to recite every a cappella and I was quite proud of myself.

How about you? What’s the first song you learned all the words to?
