I haven’t done a music post in a while, so when I saw this tag done (and made up) by Zoe London and Lily Melrose on youtube, I decided I’d do it in blog form! I love sharing songs I like – I could talk about them for hours – so this is right up my street. I’ve also added a few questions of my own because I felt like those songs needed to be mentioned. I hope you enjoy reading about some of the songs which are close to my heart!
Song you listen to when you’re happy?
There’s definitely a few which come to mind, but my answer has to be Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett – It Don’t Mean a Thing (If it Ain’t Got That Swing). That song never fails to put a smile on my face!
Song you listen to when you’re sad?
Lana Del Rey is probably the most common one – especially Born to Die, and Gods and Monsters. I also can’t go without mentioning Always on My Mind by Elvis Presley, it’s just so sad yet amazing.
What song will you have at your wedding?
I haven’t thought about this much… I guess if I had to choose it would be I Love You Baby by Frank Sinatra or Young and Beautiful – the jazz version.
What song do you dance around the house to?
Misery Business – Paramore, it’s just one you have to sing along to.
Song you play on your headphones when out and about?
The Edge by Tonight Alive, such a good song.
Song you listen to when you’re angry?
Famous Last Words by My Chemical Romance, or possibly Mama.
Song that makes you lose your shit at a party?
Anything by Iggy Azalea or Tonight Alive, such as Fancy, Change Your Life or Work (Iggy), or Lonely Girl (TA).
The last song you listened to?
Give Me Love – Demi Lovato version. By far my favourite Ed song, and Demi manages to do it justice as well.
Song you want to see live?
Kill Me – The Pretty Reckless, Whataya Want From Me – Adam Lambert, or anything by My Chemical Romance.
Your karaoke song?
I’m not really a karaoke person but I guess Don’t you Want Me by The Human League.
What song do you work out/exercise to?
Run The World (Girls) by Beyoncé would be the first one that jumps to mind, or any of her other upbeat songs. If I did exercise.
Song with the most memories attached?
We Are Broken by Paramore and Born to Die by Lana Del Rey both have a lot of memories. Also, the whole soundtrack to The Sound of Music.
Song that makes you cry?
Time to Say Goodbye – even the thought of it nearly brings me to tears.
Guilty pleasure song?
The Promise by Girls Aloud. I actually think they were really good, but I rarely admit it.
Favourite song from a musical?
This is really hard – I love musicals! I guess Something Good from The Sound of Music.
Song by an Irish artist?
Kentish Town Waltz by Imelda May. She never fails to impress me, especially live.
Favourite song to play on an instrument?
You Know My Name by Chris Cornell – It’s so much fun.
Song you hate the most?
This is between two – Anaconda by Nicki Minaj, and All About that Bass by Meghan Trainor. I can’t stand either of them.
Your favourite song of all time?
It’s really hard to pick one, I have more of a list. I’d probably put Back to Black by Amy Winehouse at the top.. Or anything by her really.
So these are the songs that I love (and hate) the most – do you agree or disagree with any of my choices? What are your favourite songs? I’d love to read it if anyone else has done this post!
