I got tagged in the Shuffle The Music Tag! I know I only recently did a post centered around my lovely shuffle button, but I love them so much, so thought I’d give you guys this one!
I’d like to thank the lovely IndieSongLyrics for nominating me, her posts are some of my favourite posts, I always love reading her blog, so you should definitely check it out too. So for this blog, you have to shuffle your entire music library, and if we know me, which by now we should, we know that I have a heavy, if not unhealthy, reliance on playlists, so this shall be interesting. Let’s see what fifteen songs come up first!
- I Want – Ruby Fields
This is such a sick song, from an amazing Aussie artist. I discovered her on my beloved Triple J radio station. This song kind of sums up what it feels like to be a teenager in Australia at the moment perfectly, even more so, being a high school student in Australia, but that’s not to say literally anyone can’t enjoy and relate to this song.
- Versace On The Floor – Bruno Mars
Have you seen the music video???? Bruno?? And Zendaya??? Amazing stuff. I’m a fan. This song is one of my favourites, and while I did not wait so long for B to deliver an album with only nine songs, I’m very grateful for this one.
- I Want – One Direction
We were going well. Hadn’t mentioned these dudes in a while. I kind of knew it wasn’t going to last. This was one of my favourite songs to play on the piano when I was a youngin’ back in the early days of high school. So hardcore.
- Backfire At The Disco – The Wombats
Definitely check this song out. I like jamming to it when it comes on, but it’s not my favourite song by The Wombats, but it’s a great tune. I like singing along to it.
- Walking In The Wind – One Direction
I’m not even mad. This song is a banger. This song is amazing, and I curse the fact that I never got to see it live. I blast this in my room all the time. When the boys started releasing all their solo stuff I had a bit of fit and created a playlist entitled ‘lads‘, which is on private, solely for the purpose of compiling all the music they released, as a boyband and as…men.
- Prom – SZA
I wish I knew how to pronounce her name. She’s a queen. Again, this isn’t my favourite song from the album, but it is definitely a good one.
- DNA. – Kendrick Lamar
Ooooh this is a good one. This one, surprisingly, is actually my favourite song from the whole album. HUMBLE is over-hyped, and this one needs far more appreciation. Give it please.
- Hearts Don’t Break Around Here – Ed Sheeran
I don’t know what Ed’s was droning about, but hearts were breaking everywhere when he released Divide, mine especially. This song is one of those ones that I sometimes overlook, but on the odd occasion that I don’t, I slap myself for all the times I did.
- Scared To Be Lonely – Martin Garrix, Dua Lipa
These guys are both legends so it only made sense that this would turn out to be a smash. I love it and I also love the amazing covers it led to on YouTube. So many good ones. But no one can sing like Dua. What a voice.
- Honest – Kodaline
I used to think that All I Want was my favourite Kodaline song, but I was wrong. It’s this one. I don’t know what it is, but for me this song is so powerful. You have to appreciate a good chorus.
- Planetarium – Justin Hurwitz
What a scene. This was one of my favourite scenes in the whole movie La La Land, even if I was convinced it was just one big trip. More so, I’m honestly in love with Justin’s whole score for the film.
- Welcome To The Get Down – Jaden Smith
I am so mad that The Get Down was cancelled. I wish I had money to put into keeping that up and running, because for me, that was one of the most worthwhile productions Baz Lurman ever worked on, it was so iconic and it didn’t get the attention it deserved. This song, is one of the more subtle and powerful songs on the track-list.
- Cranes In The Sky – Solange
Why this whole album didn’t start a revolution will forever be a mystery to me. Solange can do no wrong, and as the most widely recognised song from the album, it is definitely my favourite. Watch the music video as well. You will not regret it.
- Under The Bridge – Red Hot Chili Peppers
This song just reminds me of when I was younger. RHCP were huge when I was growing up, and this song, as well as Can’t Stop are among the songs that shaped a lot of the nostalgia I feel towards my childhood.
- Knuck If You Buck – Crime Mob, Lil Scrappy
I don’t know where my sudden appreciation for Lil Scrappy and all his tunes appeared from, but this is definitely one of my favourites from his. So good. Not so good as No Problem however. Give it a listen if you’re into that stuff.
So there we go! 15 songs, fresh from the shuffle button, I hope you liked them and the explanations I tried to give along with them!
For this tag, I’m going to nominate:
Looking forward to finding out what their shuffles produce!
