saw this doing the rounds in the past few weeks and seeing some of the pure cheese songs that people have on their Spotify had me in stitches, I love a bitta cheese.
Aim of the Tag
Basically, you set your Spotify songs to shuffle and then woefully/embarrassingly have to post them up, no matter what they are. I already know mine will consist of Oasis, some country music and a lot of 90’s R&B (which seemingly was all about sex back then, who knew?)
I don’t think I am embarrassed of my musical choices as I love a bit of everything, but I’ll be interested to see what comes up on my playlist for this. I’m deadly excited to see what pops up, so without further ado let’s get shufflin’.
1. Lyla – Oasis
Anyone who really knows me knows that Oasis is my favourite band of all time. I absolutely love them and have done since they released their first album back in the 90’s. My favourite songs (because I can’t have just one at the top) are All Around the World and Little by Little.
I know for an absolute fact that once I’ve played my 10 shuffle songs I’m going to have to go back and listen to their Greatest Hits, again.
2. Alexander Hamilton – Original Hamilton Broadway Cast
“What’s your name, man?!” “My name is Alexander Hamilton.” I LOVEEEE this song. I would absolutely love to see Hamilton live. My cousin and I are huge fans of musical’s. My all-time favourite musical is Cats, followed closely joint second by The Little Shop of Horrors (Suddenly Seymourrrr) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I love both versions with Tim Curry and of course, the gorgeous Laverne Cox (Damnit, Janet!)
If you haven’t heard of Hamilton, firstly where have you been hiding? Under a rock? Secondly, go on Youtube and find it then listen to this absolutely stunning cover by Sophia Pecora which will actually blow you away when you find out what age she is.
3. Back in Black – AC/DC
I honestly think the only reason this is on here is because my father-in-law requested it when the hubby had taken us out for a drive in a BMW X5 he had a loan of from work. It’s a good song, though. I’m more of a Guns N Roses/Aerosmith/Def Leppard/Dr Hook typa girl, myself.
4. Sound of Silence – Disturbed
Okay, so this is totally morbid, but I want this song played at my funeral when I die because it’s such an incredible song. It’s really haunting, but at the same time really, really beautiful. I actually like it better than the original and I’m a big fan of Simon & Garfunkel, so that’s saying something. If you haven’t heard it then please go and give it a listen. I love the album “Immortalized”, but I’ll be honest it’s not for everyone as they are a heavy metal band, after all.
5. Straight Outta Compton – N.W.A
I’m what’s commonly known as a “wigger/wigga” which is basically:
“A white person that displays a strong desire to emulate African American hip Hop culture and generally accept “thug life” guiding principles.” – Urban Dictionary
Urban Dictionary’s definition, not mine. However, 100% accurate, lol! I really hope it isn’t an offensive term, I don’t think it is, I did check so here’s hoping… Anyways, I have listened to Hip-Hop for as long as I can remember, my party trick is to rap to TuPac – Hit Em Up and I’m very good at it, just ask my other half. I’d say the majority of my iPod is Hip-Hop with the other 10% being a mixture of all other genres (yes, I still use an iPod.)
N.W.A were my absolute favourite Hip-Hop group of all time and I would often run about with my wee cassette player (what a way to show your age there, Nicole) with my headphones on and N.W.A full blast. For those of you wondering why my parents allowed me to listen to it my dad didn’t live with me and probably wouldn’t have minded as I was a good kid and had more sense than to run around the streets shouting out “Fuck Tha Police!” at the top of my lungs. My mother… well, if you’ve been a follower for a long time you know why she didn’t give a shit.
6. mOBSCENE – Marilyn Manson
I was first introduced to Marilyn’s music by my friend, Dean when I was about 14? I think. I wasn’t a punk/emo kid, I was a wigger as I mentioned above, but my taste in music has always been eclectic. This is such a tune for the gym or basically if you need to let off a bit of steam by listening to some angry music. I wouldn’t recommend moshing, it gives you an awful headache after a while.
The Golden Age of Grotesque which is where this song is taken from, was the first album of Marilyn’s that I downloaded from Limewire. Haha, Limewire, those were the days. I’m so fucking old, it’s an actual joke.
7. What If This Is All The Love You Ever Get?
This is the only song that is actually new. All the other songs so far have been old school, if you are not a Snow Patrol fan then I’m massively disappointed in you. This is an amazingly beautiful song and poor Gary Lightbody froze his balls off on the Strangford Lough, County Down, Northern Ireland, playing the piano on some crudely made raft for the video. It’s a gorgeous song and I actually got goosebumps the first time I listened to it. There isn’t a lot of music that makes me feel that way, when I first heard it I played it on repeat for a week straight. If you go on Youtube to watch the videos, just know that at least 20,000 of those views are from me.
Snow Patrol are a Northern Irish band and I, of course, being the passionate Northern Irish girl that I am have loved them since the first time I heard “Run”. I went out immediately and bought the album, I loved it that much. That’d dedication as Limewire could have gave me the full album for free. I saw them in concert a few times and I’m hoping to get to see them, again on 8th December this year and I cannot actually wait, it’ll be deadly!
GO AND GET THEIR NEW ALBUM, YOU WON’T BE SORRY.
8. Pour Some Sugar On Me (Remastered) – Def Leppard
I mean… do I even need to say anything? This is one of the best rock songs of all time, it’s featured in God know’s how many films and adverts since it was released a few decades, yes decades, ago. I was 4 months old when this song was released on 8th September 1987. Yes, NINETEEN EIGHTY SEVEN. What age is the average age for a mid-life crisis? I think I might be having one…
9. Fire Away – Chris Stapleton
Chris Stapleton is the MAN. He has taken over Garth Brooks as the King of Country music. You may have heard him on the track Say Something with Justin Timberlake which was released earlier this year (that’s 2018 for those reading in the future).
Random and slightly morbid fact about this song, it’s actually a song about suicide. It’s also another song I want played at my funeral, probably during the cremation. I have cried basically every single time I’ve heard this song because the first time I remember really listening to the song, I was trying to decide whether or not to take my own life. So, the song has a very powerful meaning, I’d no idea it was about suicide at the time, but how weird that it was this song I was listening to when I was thinking of it.
Another amazing song of Chris’ (basically all his songs are amazing), just to sorta get you into his music would be Tennessee Whiskey. I wanna say this song is more like a love song. Another fun fact, Chris Stapleton mentions Northern Ireland in his song “Scarecrow in the Garden” which is another really epic song. When I first listened to it i thought he was talking of his daddy emigrating from Northern Ireland to America, but now I’m not so sure and can’t actually find any evidence to back that up.
10. Get Mine, Get Yours – Christina Aguilera
Last, but most certainly not least is the one and only, my WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) errrday, and my favourite female solo artist from the 00’s until present day, Christina Aguilera. This is what I call my sexy-time song because the lyrics are sexyyyyyy. The song isn’t suitable for kids unless you want to explain what Christina means by “limme get mine, you get yours”. I was always strangely horny after listening to this song and did do it to this song, once with an ex… okay… TMI, sorry laddds.
I remember when I first seen Christina Aguilera in concert it was during her Candy Man era. I touched her leg, HER LEG and I nearly fucking died. I never thought I’d be THAT person, but I was. I’m not even ashamed of it, either cos’ like, just look at her, she’s what we would call in Northern Ireland “a buck” or, “a ride”. Take of that what you will… I’ve seen her several times since then and she’s been incredible every single time. The girl has PIPES.
I don’t think I’ve danced as a dick that much since I was a teenager in the Beach Club with my bestie, Grace. We used to think we were the dogs bollocks at dancing, when in reality all we were really doing was dry humping the air and grinding with our hands either in the air or on our bodies somewhere. #imthebestdancer (inside family joke) #thebestdancersinnorthernireland
I honestly don’t know who has or hasn’t been tagged and I cannot even remember who tagged me, but thank you to whoever it was. I’ll leave this as an open tag for anyone who hasn’t yet done it, but I know I’m about 3 months’ too late (better late than never as they say).
