I saw this tag on Donna@Chocolatenwaffle’s and because I’m a rebel, I thought of doing this tag while
waiting for procrastinating. And yes, that is me on the tag graphic. I was frantically looking for a girl with headphones on as a background and I couldn’t relate to any of the ones I found, so I thought, what the hell, why not just use an old crappy quality picture of myself? It’s my playlist anyways, right?! (and there are books in the background)
So here are the rules:
– List the first
10 12 songs that come on shuffle (no skipsies)
– Then write your favourite lyric (or verse) from that song (so I kinda forgot about that part….)
– Tag others
Just like with my reading, my taste in music is also pretty eclectic so I went to my Spotify account and had lots of fun. So much, that I couldn’t stop clicking. It’s like last Rafflecopter’s giveaway all over again!
Miss Murder – AFI
I wish I had an inspiring story to accompany this one, but nope, I got nothing!
Turning Japanese – The Vapors
Even though this is a way older song, I didn’t come across it until ten years ago when I was semi-living in Germany. I didn’t hear it on the radio or anything (that was reserved for David Hasselhoff really), but when playing Guitar Hero for hours on end with friends. Good times! (no sarcasm there)
Money for Nothing – Dire Straits
Now this, boys and girls, is a classic! If you were born in the 90’s or even the 00’s, here’s some education for ya. Fun fact: Sting made a lot of money off this song basically only by writing and singing the opening lines ‘I want my MTV’. Four words –> $$$$!
The Humpty Dance – Digital Underground
Don’t judge me, this is a legit song on Barney Stinson’s Get Psyched Mix.
Summertime Sadness – Lana Del Rey
When I heard Video Games on the radio for the first time years ago, I was like: “Who is this?! I need more of this in my life! “. A reaction I never have when it comes to hearing newer music on the radio. Lana makes for an awesome exception. I loved her even more after I heard she totally crashed and didn’t make any public appearances for a while after she broke through all of a sudden. Just shows she’s only human as well, and that’s just fab.
Edge of Seventeen – Stevie Nicks
Hail Stevie Nicks! Another musical education experience for you young ones out there. Although you might be familiar with her work if you’ve watched American Horror Story Season 3 (she’s even starring in it!!).
Bulls on Parade – Rage Against The Machine
Love this song. Period. And really glad this one popped up instead of Vanilla Ice or whatever embarrassing kind of stuff is out there on my Spotify list.
Everything is Awesome – Jo Li (feat.The Lonely Island)
\õ/ The perfect song to create some happy vibes! And The Lonely Island is featured in this version. Much love.
Celebrity Skin – Hole
You can say whatever you want about Courtney Love, but she definitely made some solid songs. This is one of them.
Dick in a Box – The Lonely Island/Justin Timberlake
Andy Samberg, marry me. (this was the best YouTube version I could find without searching for half an hour, apparently, Justin’s last name is Timbarlake in Polish).
Flying Dutchman – Tori Amos
Mkay, so this is why I couldn’t stop at #10. I’m a huge Tori Amos fan and have been for 20 years. This is originally one of her b-tracks and between you and me, some of her songs that I love the most are b-tracks. Whoever was in charge of editing her albums at the time was an idiot for not including these songs. If you’re not familiar with Tori, she can play the piano like a pro, but I love it when she plays two pianos at the same time. I’ve been to four of her concerts (maybe five even) and it’s always a joy to watch her perform and literally getting off on it as well. Bummer when it comes to the botox, new teeth, and last albums, though.
I Wanna Be Your Dog – The Stooges
Not much to add here besides this being a fab song to energise you or make you feel like you’re a part of Woodstock (drugs included [even though I don’t do drugs]).
Now for the tagging! I know a lot of you out there have great and interesting tastes in music, so here it goes:
