I was so graciously tagged by Claire at Brizzlelass Books for this fun award! If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you should. She’s an avid book blogger who is very engaging with her audience and a cool person. 🙂 So here’s the thing. I have amassed quite an MP3 collection over the years in my Google Play music account and I used to put it on shuffle while driving to and from work. But then my husband bought Tidal and now I just listen to whole albums or NPR on the way to work and Pandora at work. So I went into said Google Play account and hit the shuffle button to see what happens. Here are the rules and following those are my songs chosen by a robot.
- Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating).
- Tag 10 others to do it as well.
Beyonce – End of Time
I am a Beyonce fan. Mostly of her newer stuff from the album 4 and newer. Her songs are so upbeat! This was actually my “omg we were just pronounced married!” walk back down the aisle song. I know its called something else but the name is eluding me at this moment.
The Sleeping – Don’t Hold Back
I am not ashamed to admit that I learned this song from playing Guitar Hero 3 back in the day. I didn’t have much of a rock background before guitar playing video games so this is a time that I thank video games for expanding my horizons.
Void of a Legend – Triptyq (Antoniette Costa and Kevin “K.O.” Olusola
If you like acapella, cello and beatboxing combined, you’ll love this track!
Killswitch Engage – My Curse
Guitar Hero 3 and you had to unlock a certain amount of levels in order to be able to play this song! (Also, the main singer is a black man, whaaat!)
Sia – One Million Bullets
I adore Sia. She is so underrated.
Michael Jackson – Remember the Time
If you have not seen this video, you should watch it. Just once! And then imagine me doing the same dances the “Egyptians” are doing because everytime I hear this song I get up and I mostly do them, hahaha. I mean it’s MJ! You can’t not dance when you hear MJ.
Donna Burke – Kaze No Ne
So this apparently came off of a Final Fantasy video game but I learned about it from a random CD mix a friend used to send me back in the day and I love this woman’s voice.
Tracy Chapman – Fast Car
Classic. So many covers of this song on singing competitions.
Gorillaz – Kids With Guns
I mean it doesn’t get any more varied than Gorillaz
Rush – YYZ
Guitar Hero 2….. Hey! I went from not having any hand eye coordination to playing on expert! And yes, we played Rock Band too and still do on occasion if you were wondering.
I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did cause man it’s been a while since I’ve done that. We’re lucky we didn’t get some Disney tunes this round cause trust me I have a least two Disney soundtracks in that shuffle 😉 . Now I’m thinking of listening on my way home and see what else I have in there! Isn’t it so cool how many songs you have memorized? I feel like if my entire schooling and work career were taught using song, I’d be a genius.
Oh yeah! Tagging people! Umm….
I’m lazy. If you feel like doing this tag go for it! Link me back. I would love to know your musical tastes!
Have you heard anything off my list? If you haven’t and deigned to listen to a couple tracks, did you like what you heard? Let me know in the comments below!
