The 30-Day Music Challenge

In the efforts of getting back into the swing of blogging again, I have decided to take upon the 30-day music challenge. A challenge where every day of the month, I will post a song based on the list provided below. The idea is to share a little bit about myself through music. But here is the twist. Well, my twist only because I like to be unique. Not only will it help me make sure to post at least one entry a day for the next few months, It'll be something different. Life is blah without music! So here goes...

The Challenge: 30-Day Music Challenge

Contender: Marketing Elite by day, Music lover by night

The Rules and Regulations:

Day 01 – Your favorite song
Day 02 – Your least favorite song

2. The second month will consist of 30 songs that will all be in Hindi. (Third=Bangla, Fourth = Arabic, Fifth = English etc..)

So with that being said, here it goes...
