Song Challenge

A thank you goes out to fellow blogger and friend, Rob Goldstein for nominating me for this fun challenge. The rules are:

Post a song a day for five consecutive days.

Post what the lyrics mean to you.  (Optional)

Post the name of the song and video.

Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge.

I had a hard time picking a song for the first day of the challenge! I finally decided to go with…

Although The Doors are from the 60’s and early 70’s, listening to them takes me back to my high school days in the 90’s. I like several Doors songs but “Riders on the Storm” is one of my favorites. For some reason, their music’s always made me reflect on life. Today I’m taking you back to 1970 with “Riders on the Storm.” “Riders on the Storm” was released in 1970, one year prior to lead singer Jim Morrison’s death. Jim Morrison died at age 27 from heart failure while he was in Paris. I’ve always thought he lived an interesting but crazy life. If I had the opportunity to meet someone who’s already passed away, I’d pick him. I have so many questions I’d like to ask him. I wish I could show you the photos I took of his grave in Paris but I can’t find them. I had the opportunity to visit his grave during my senior year of high school in 1999. Today I’m nominating the following two bloggers to participate:

Ritu

Erika

Bloggers may or may not participate. Hopefully they do but if not that’s ok 🙂 A lot of us have busy lives so I understand if isn’t possible. Have a great day! I’ll be back Thursday with Day 2 of this challenge.

  1. Thank you again for nominating me, Rob. You’re right, The Doors movie was released in the 90’s. My parents have liked them for a long time too. I got into them more because of them and a friend of mine.
