Music A to Z: B

Welcome to the second week of my new features Music A to Z. Each week on Thursday, I am going to share a song where either the song or the artist name begins with the letter for that week. This week, the letter is....


Brave by Sara Bareilles - I don't know about you but it takes me a long time to decide that it is time to change my ring tone. By extension, that means that I keep my ring tones for years, so much so that if I hear the song I have to think it that might be my phone or not. I had this song as my ringtone for maybe 3 years before I finally changed it to the one I have now....four years ago! Might be time to change it again. Changed it today, to a song that is already two years old but never mind.

Bed of Roses by Bon Jovi -  I have seen Bon Jovi in  concert several times over the year. The first time was back in Adelaide in the early 90s and then a couple of times at stadium tours. That would be enough to share a Bon Jovi song, but it just so happens that this song contains one of my favourite lines ever at the beginning of the third verse.

With an ironclad fist
I wake up and french kiss the morning

Bed of Lies by Nicki Minaj - I wouldn't call myself a Nicki Minaj fan really, but I do like clever song lyrics, and this song contains one that I think is pretty clever

So does she know I've been in that bed before
A thousand count, and not a single thread of truth

Bye, Bye, Bye by N'Sync - The next two songs are actually songs that were my son's favourites when he was little, around 18 months to 2 years old. I can't tell you how many times we would listen to the CD single of this song - over and over and over again.

Believe by Cher - His first obsession when he was even younger was the video for this song. If it came on MTV it would literally stop him in his tracks, and then he would continue on his way to do whatever he was busy doing. I think it must be the flashing lights!

Feel free to share some of your B songs in the comments!


  1. I was thinking of Bon Jovi! We like Boz Scaggs but not sure if that would be better suited for the letter S.

    Brown Eyed Hirl, Born in the USA & Back Door Man. I’d meat to say Allman Brothers last week.
    Fun post!

    1. I meant to post Angels by Robbie Williams!

  2. How did I forget the Beatles?! I was listening to the Beatles channel on the way to our next campground today!

    1. How did either of us forget The Beatles! I am trying to share no more than 5 songs every week, maybe that's why!

    2. Have you seen the movie Yesterday? SO many Beatles songs and you forget just how many they put out.
