Shuffle The Music Tag!

Shuffle the Music Tag

I've been ill for the last few weeks of November and, not wanting to have a Sunday without a post (I've done pretty well keeping up with them this year), I thought a tag would be quick to do and pretty entertaining to read. Unfortunately, I haven't been tagged in anything this month. So I did a quick search and came across the Shuffle The Music Tag on Tania Michele's blog. Music tags are few and far between, so I thought it would be a nice change from the norm.

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog
2. Shuffle your entire music library and talk about the FIRST FIFTEEN songs that come up
3. Mention the songs as well as the artists
4. Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and let them know

The Music
1. Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana
I LOVED Nirvana when I was in my mid to late teens and although Heart-Shaped Box wasn't my favourite of their songs, I did listen to it a lot back then.

2. Feed My Frankenstein - Alice Cooper
What can I say, I love Wayne's World.

3. Burning Love - Elvis Presley
Who doesn't love Elvis?

4. Constellations - The Shears
There's a terrible MTV movie called The Dorm and this is from the soundtrack. It's poppy in a 2009 way that I sometimes miss.

5. Detroit Rock City - Kiss
This is one of those songs that I find it impossible to ever listen to enough. Kiss are one of those bands that I always enjoyed but didn't realise how much until I had to import all my music to a new laptop and it went missing in the transfer. I was gutted!

6. Dear Prudence - The Beatles
The Beatles are undoubtedly one of my favourite bands of all time. This song is haunting and beautiful. In fact, the whole of The White Album is a masterpiece.

7. Freak On A Leash - Korn
I have a confession to make. I had heard of Korn, but never really listened to them until I saw Queen of the Damned and became obsessed with the soundtrack, which was produced with front man Jonathon Davis. I'm not a massive fan but I defy you to not love this song.

8. Cupid - Sam Cooke
This is a song that has always seemed to be in my music collection, somehow. I don't remember ever downloading it. I don't know where it came from but I like it.

9. She - Green Day
A throwback to my early teens, She is one of those songs that I used to love to play loudly and it probably annoyed the shit out my mum. Back then, the bands I listened to were considered "weird" and "goth" which is so strange considering how things are today.

10. Jumpin' Jumpin' - Destiny's Child
Are you even a 90s child if you don't love Destiny's Child?

11. Scars - Papa Roach
When I googled this and realised it was from 2004, I felt horribly old. This song feels like its 5 minutes old, despite the fact that it is really dated. Seeing this live in 2013 was a highlight. I loved Papa Roach.

12. Coppers - Rancid
I'm back into Rancid again lately. Every few years I "rediscover" them and pick a new song to adore. This is definitely one of my favourites right now. It encapsulates everything about the punk movement that I missed because, you know, I wasn't born.

13. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down - The Band
The Band are a classic rock group that no one seems to know about these days. Whether its a generational thing, or they've just been forget to some degree, I don't know. But I do know that this song is fantastic.

14. Torn - Natalie Imbruglia
You can't forget this relic, also the David Armand mime.

15. Living in a Suitcase - Jack McManus
Ah :) I haven't heard this in forever. I bought the album after seeing him support John Mayer on tour. Jack McManus was one of those artists that had one underwhelming album and disappeared from the charts forever. But he married Martine McCutcheon so it all ended well.

Nominees:
