Who am I to say what people would and wouldn’t expect…

Day 14 – A Song That Nobody Would Expect You to Love

Weekends are not my blogging forte… I went paintballing today… that was fun… fairly sore in places because of it. It was AMAZING, I’d definitely go again… anyway I’m not sure what people would and would not expect of me to love musically. I like to think I’m fairly versatile and don’t think anybody would be overly shocked by my taste in music.

I’ve decided to pick a song that just popped in to my head (this challenge is great at bringing to the surface songs you love but have kinda forgotten about) I reckon if you asked anyone who knows me to pick a song I love not one of them would pick this one… It just wouldn’t come to mind….

Sailing to Philadelphia – Mark Knopfler & James Taylor

Day 10 – A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep…

2 Mar

SO a song that makes me fall asleep…

Well to be notoriously difficult as usual I’d like to point out that I generally can’t fall asleep listening to music because it takes up too much of my concentration, 100% if you recall from an earlier post…

There are very few times I’ve fallen asleep listening to music and I’d say they all happened when I was travelling and exhausted… When I think of a song that I could possibly sleep to I keep coming back to this one and It’s definitely a contender in the top ten of all time for me….

I LOVE this song!  It reminds me of 2006/7 when it featured heavily on my playlists… There are few songs that stick with me that long and each time I listen to them I love every second of it!!

Imogen Heap – Hide and Seek

As usual thank you for reading all of you (or one of you whichever’s closest) more please AND Commenting is ALWAYS welcome in fact it’s ENCOURAGED :D!

Thanks!! 😉

Sweet Dreams…

Surprised I Made it This Far? I am!


A Song That You Know All The Words to…

Well there are so many of these, I generally learn all the words to every song I like pretty quickly…. Lyrics just come naturally to me (I used to write songs! but that’s for a future post…). I’m not really sure what I should pick… I guess it should be just another song I like enough to sing along to…. That narrows it down to just about EVERYTHING

Except Barbra Streisand, but it’s not exactly hard to get the lyrics to that song!! What’s it again? Barbra Streisand? Oh and Oooohh NEVER forget the OOOOOOH!!!

Anyway my current favourite song!!!!

Warning for those with photosensitive epilepsy… flashing lights… Oh god I love it!!

All of the Lights – Kanye West

Day 5: A Song That Reminds You of Someone…

25 Feb

So so many to choose from so little time….

9 to 5 – Dolly Parton

This reminds me of a friend who, a couple of years ago, didn’t believe me that the verse with “you’re in the same boat as a lot your friends, waiting for the day your ship’ll come in” existed!! from then on it kinda became “our song”

Anyway I’m off out to  enjoy my friday night… maybe I’ll do something blogworthy and then you’ll have two post in one day. That might just blow your minds!!!

A Song That Makes You Sad!!


I really can’t think of many songs that make me sad right now… Even sad songs I listen to don’t necessarily make me sad. I appreciate the sadness and all but it doesn’t send me spiraling into the depths of depression….

Hmmm…. It’s tough there’s plenty of sad songs I like I suppose I’ll just pick one of those…………..

Ok I’ve thought about it… and there’s three songs* I associate with sadness and loss and I wouldn’t be insulted (actually I reckon I’d feel fairly big headed) if any of them were played at my funeral!!

Wishing you were somehow here again – The Phantom of the Opera


Hear You me (May Angels Lead you in)- Jimmy Eat World

With this song it’s the line “A song for a heart so big, God wouldn’t let it live” Absolutely gets me every time, a giant surge of emotion. I love this song for that reason.


I’m yours – The Script

In this one, the song itself isn’t a sad one but the line “The day news came my best friend died, my knees went weak and you saw me cry” the first time I heard it I have to be honest I actually shed several tears (So so manly I know!!) because I was so into the song I imagined my best friend dying I NEVER want to think about that ever again! It’s my biggest fear!!

Anyway there are my songs for the day… talk to y’all tomorrow!! 😀

*THREE SONGS… I’m getting out of control! Seriously!

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 02

22 Feb

My least favourite song…

Hmmm…. Similar to the fact I have trouble picking favourites, I have trouble picking my least favourite…

I’ve been thinking about this all day and there is a recent song that’s standing out for me…


Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand

Link

The song just kinda annoys me, I reckon it’s just the repetitive nature of it…

I have been known to dance to it and enjoy it while drunk but that’s a separate issue!!

Now after watching the video I actually like it significantly more… The video is not as repetitive and is generally just less like the single/radio version

But yeah it’s still my least favourite at the moment!!
