I saw this tag on There Might Be Coffee and decided to give it a try. It’s always nice to branch out and look at something other than books. So, without further delay, it’s time to shuffle by playlist…
Thank the person who nominated you for this tag and link to their blog.
- Shuffle your entire music library (no matter how old songs the songs are) and talk about the FIRST FIFTEEN songs that come up (anything like why they are there, if they signify something, any story, why you like them, etc.)
- Mention the songs as well as the artists.
- Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and please let them know!
1. Dirty Paws by Of Monsters and Men
I recently rediscovered Of Monsters and Men. I’m going through an alternative/indie/folksy stage and this song has become a must on my lesson planning playlists.
2. Jeb Rand by Armistice
While this particular version of this song isn’t my favourite, I still enjoy listening to it. I highly recommend checking out the original by Bedouin Soundclash.
3. November by Ryan O’Reilly
The live acoustic version of this song is even better! This song is a lot of fun to sing along to while I’m driving home from work.
4. Non Believer by London Grammar
I didn’t think anything could top their debut album and then they came out with this song. I can listen to Hannah Reid’s voice for hours. Gorgeous!
5. Send Them Off! by Bastille
I love every single song Bastille has released. ❤ No, seriously! I firmly believe that they are incapable of creating a bad song.
6. T5 by Swet Shop Boys
I don’t even remember how I discovered the Swet Shop Boys, but I’m sure glad that I did! If you haven’t
7. It’s No Good by Depeche Mode
Depeche Mode are one of my all time favourite bands and Dave Gahan’s voice makes me melt. I can listen to each and every one of their songs over and over again.
8. Beggin for Thread by Banks
I discovered Banks through my sister who continuously had this song on repeat for what felt like weeks and weeks. There’s something about how her voice changes in this song that fascinates me.
9. Drumming Song by Florence + The Machine
Florence Welch’s voice is heavenly. That is all.
10. Skinny Love by Birdy
This song is just so damn heartbreaking. Birdy’s voice gets me every time, it’s just so hauntingly beautiful.
11. Natural Right (Rude Bwoy) by Bedouin Soundclash
Bedouin Soundclash are one of my favourite bands. This is from their first album and it reminds me of when I was in my first year of university. I used to play this song over and over again while working in my dorm room. I still can’t get enough of it.
12. Ophelia by The Lumineers
I can’t help but singing along to this song! It reminds me of long car rides with my sister who also adores The Lumineers.
13. Reason Is Treason by Kasabian
It’s been ages since I’ve listened to this song!
14. Borders by M.I.A.
M.I.A. is a queen. Her music, confidence, fashion, willingness to take on controversial topics…yeah, I love her. Enough said!
15. After Dark by Le Tigre
Le Tigre were the soundtrack to my time in high school. This was one of their later releases but I still love it all the same.
