Song Outside Choice Genre

I’ve decided to do a music challenge I discovered at MindLovesMisery blog. It’s a 30 day music challenge. I’m not planning to do it in 30 days or in order. I find it’s easier and more fun to just post as I hear a song that fits any of the prompts and create a list under each post showing the prompts I’ve completed.

Here’s another song for the challenge.  This song is a little different for me.  I like to listen to many different kinds of music, but most often I will listen to contemporary, alternative, or rock music.  One genre I sometimes listen too, and could be considered outside my choice genre, is country music.  The following song is one of my favorite country music songs.  The music video starts with one sister being mean to her little sister and then the music starts.  I discovered this video Friday night.  I enjoyed this song because it reminds me of my husband and son, but I never thought of my relationship with my brother until I saw this video. If you’ve seen a past post (Follow Through -Haiku My Heart), you’ll understand. When we were kids, my brother was mean to me like the big sister; and I seem to remember more of the mean than the nice.  Go figure. Blogging therapy strikes again. As usual, the lyrics are below the video.

Day 19: A song you like that is outside of your choice genre–

The World by Brad Paisley


“The World”

To the teller down at the bank
You’re just another checking account
To the plumber that came today
You’re just another house
At the airport ticket counter
You’re just another fare
At the beauty shop at the mall
Well you’re just another head of hair
Well that’s alright, that’s ok
If you don’t feel important, honey
All I’ve got to say is

To the world
You may be just another girl
But to me
Baby, you are the world

To the waiter at the restaurant
You’re just another tip
To the guy at the ice cream shop
You’re just another dip
When you can’t get reservations
‘Cause you don’t have the clout
Or you didn’t get an invitation
‘Cause somebody left you out
That’s alright, that’s ok
When you don’t feel important honey
All I’ve got to say is

[Repeat chorus]

You think you’re one of millions but you’re one in a million to me
When you wonder if you matter, baby look into my eyes
And tell me, can’t you see you’re everything to me

That’s alright, that’s ok
When you don’t feel important honey
All I’ve gotta say is

[Repeat chorus]
