Shuffle Song Tag.

Hey there! so while scrolling twitter the other day i saw that the lovely Nicole from northern Irish girl online had done the shuffle song tag. I had a read and i loved it! basically you put your spotify playlist on shuffle and then put them up regardless! i tweeted Nicole how much i liked it and she tagged me, so here it is! Now mine turned into a bit of a game, because i started doing mine but all i was getting was songs from Hamilton, which while i love that soundtrack it isnt all i listen too. So i skipped one or two but my friend said i was cheating so i sent him my playlist so he could do it for me! we did have to work through some Hamilton, but it was a lot of fun turning it into a game.

Im honestly a little sad that some songs didnt come up, for example i love the soundtrack from the greatest showman, six, but i also love five finger death punch and stars in stereo that didnt pop up! i have a wide taste, though as you will see its mainly musicals and rock/alternative music.

1. Here without you – Jay smith

Ohhh jay smith, one of my friends who is swedish got me into jay smith, he originally won the Swedish version of Pop idol in 2010  and he did a cover of this song on there too. Hes got a really gritty, soulful voice, he also is rather hot that helps a fair amount!

2. Aaron burr sir – Hamilton

I am (as you will see) a rather big fan of musical soundtracks, and this was actually the soundtrack that started it. Hamilton is a musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of america. This is an amazing soundtrack, very different to your classic musical soundtracks.

3. My dead gay son – Heathers

I had a right old laugh when this popped up! This is also a musical soundtrack, from the musical Heathers, Heathers is based on a movie from 1989 of the same name, you join veronica sawyer starting her senior year of high school, her high school is your classic, the nerds, the goths, the jocks and the popular girls – the Heathers. You can hear that this song is outdated, but it is very progressive too because it is about excepting people for who they are.

4. The me inside of me – Heathers

Another Heathers song! this song without spoiling is from the main popular girl, Heather chandlers point of view, well sort of. Its hard to explain without completely spoiling but it is brilliant, if you like dark humour with a number of messages i highly suggest Heathers!

5. Stars – Sixx: A.M.

You will see a theme, but a friend got me into this band and im so glad she did! they have a lot of songs about self esteem and excepting who you are, some of there songs are truly beautiful. Stars is described by the band as a classic Sixx:A.M song and it really is, its a beautiful classic song in my eyes at least talking about just being alone with someone and taking it in.


6.  Who taught you how to hate – Disturbed

I really love Disturbed, again my friends got me into them! and im glad they did, they were the first band i listened to that was a bit rockier and i adore it. Who taught you how to hate, was written after disturbed came back from a hiatus, David Draiman  the main singer (who is amazing) and his wife had just had a son. And this song was inspired by how children are not born with hatred, they are pure and non-judgemental and they learn hatred. Its a very important topic they hit so well here.

7. Fall in line – Christina Aguilera & Demi Lovato

Yes! Oh so happy this came up, Fall in line came out earlier this year and its so good. Its talking about the way women have been made to do things, to “fall in line” for so long, and how it shouldnt be that way anymore.

Little girls, listen closely
Cause no one told me
But you deserve to know
That in this world, you are not beholden
You do not owe them
Your body and your soul

Says it all right?

8. Mz Hyde – Halestorm

I do love a bit of Halestorm! Halestorm is a brilliant band, and its a rock band with a female lead with you dont see too often! there songs can be pretty racy, but honestly i find that kind of empowering? Mz Hyde is about being a completely different person in bed than during the day basically!

9. I get off – Halestorm

Oh look, another Halestorm song! and its racy again, good grief. This song, being blunt is about getting off on being watched. (those moments when your glad your family doesn’t read your blog).

10. Immortal – Disturbed

And finishing with another disturbed song, nice! Immortalised is basically a very empowering song, they say its meant to make you feel powerful and able to take on anything, and it does its very empowering and you feel like you could take on the world.

And there we have it, i hope you enjoyed! it really does show my tastes pretty well, empowering rocky songs and musicals! Im not gonna tag anyone out right, but please if you want to do feel free to do so!

harry potter tag.

Hey there! so i saw this tag on jenny in wonderlands blog the other day after she tweeted out her old post of it, saying it was coming back recently and as soon as i saw it i had to jump on it straight away! harry potter is something that followed me heavily during my teenage years and is still very important to me.

1. What house are you in?

I am a hufflepuff down to my bones!

2. What is your Patronus?

My Patronus is a swift, (a small bird).

3. What is your wand?

My wand is cypress wood with a unicorn hair 14 1/4″ and slightly yielding flexibility.

4. What would your boggart be?

If your boggart could be change i think that would be mine, its always been something i really struggle with.

5. What position would you play in quiddich?

I have a feeling this is very much cheating but i would be the referee! i couldnt play quiddich, but blowing a whistle and shouting a lot i can do!

6. Would you be a pure-blood, half-blood or muggle born?

Going by my parents i would be half – blood, my mum isnt quite as harry potter mad as me but she does love it, but my dad isnt so interested (hes very amused by my knowledge of it however).

7. What job would you want to have after leaving Hogwarts?

Id be a magical foster mum, taking care of the children the wizarding world doesnt want, your orphans like harry having a safe space.

8. Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

The cloak i think, the wand is too powerful and id be scared of it, and the stone is just a dangerous object regardless.

9. Favourite book?

Oooh thats so hard! id say either Order of the Phoenix or The Deathly Hallows.

10. Least favourite book?

I hate saying any are my least favourite! but the one i enjoyed the least would be Prisoner of Akazban.

11. Favourite film?

Its gotta be Deathly hallows part 1 & 2 for me! part 2 especially, it just is so gripping and has so many moments that just draw so many emotions from me.

12. Least favourite film?

Again i think its prisoner of Akazban, i just could never get into that one like i could the others.

13. Favourite character?

This is such a difficult question to answer! but i think its Nymphadora Tonks, it makes me very sad that she isnt a more explored character.

14. Least favourite/most hated character?

Umbridge, i dont know why anyone else would say any differently!

15. Favourite teacher at Hogwarts?

Professor McGonagall! admittedly that is swayed by the fact that Maggie Smith plays her and i adore maggie smith, but regardless she is such a strong powerful no bullshit witch.

16. Least favourite teacher at Hogwarts?

 Umbridge, come on now!

17. Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?

I dont really think i do, i am a massive potterhead and i really love it, i dont really dislike anything about it!
