Here’s my take on the 30 Day Song Challenge that’s been doing the rounds on Facebook. It’s pretty self-explanatory, but it’s worth noting that it’s an ongoing thing and you can start on any day you like! So don’t feel like you’ve missed out if your friend is already on day 25.

To get started, go and ‘like’ the 30 Day Song Challenge community page, and read the rules to get each day’s prompt. Then use your Facebook status updates to share your songs. You can encourage friends to join in by including the link in your updates (tip: type @30 and hit Enter).

Let’s kick things off with day 1: your favourite song. Talk about starting with a difficult one! Are we talking ‘now’, or ‘all-time’? The Disco Patrick LastFM charts would suggest a few different tracks, based on play counts over the last 7 days, 3 months, 6 months, and so on. What this doesn’t account for is all the music that my LastFM account doesn’t know about, i.e. the dance music that I DJ with but don’t play on the iPod. The Disco Patrick Spotify profile tells a different story too.

It’s a tough choice, but narrowing it down to ‘favourite song right now’ makes it a bit easier, and that makes it ‘Take Me Over’ by Cut Copy, who are also my favourite band right now. I went to see Cut Copy earlier this year and they played this song then. It hasn’t failed to put a smile on my face yet, and it makes me bounce around in my chair at work :)

Enjoy, and see you tomorrow!
