Spooktober is all about scary adventures, so when I saw this tag used by the lovely Beth @ Reading Every Night I thought taking a step out of the usual book tags would qualify as my scary adventure! (What?! I don’t do scary, I don’t do adventures, and I don’t do music when it involves more than singing in the shower or car, so …)
(I’m still not good at pictures and stuff, no matter how easy Canva makes it!)
#1 List the first 10 songs that come on shuffle (no skipsies)
#2 Then write your favorite lyric (or verse) from that song
#3 Tag others
(I added links to Youtube videos with the song titles)
How can you say that your truth is better than ours?
Shoulder to shoulder, now brother, we carry no arms
The blind man sleeps in the doorway, his home
If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy I could have won
I could have translated this, but it would have meant admitting I still understand Japanese and I have been in denial for two years, so I won’t, sorry!
負けないで 泣かないで 消えてしまいそうな時は
I’ve been around the world and never in my wildest dreams
Would I come running home to you
I’ve told a million lies but now I tell a single truth
There’s you in everything I do
And I’d give up forever to touch you
‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t wanna go home right now
You have no idea how many times I sang this one at the pub. If you’re lucky, you weren’t there!
Take me to the place where you go
Where nobody knows if it’s night or day
Please don’t put your life in the hands
Of a Rock ‘n’ Roll band
Who’ll throw it all away
Is there a message in there, iTunes?
Yeah, it’s just a piece of paper but it says “I Love You”
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home
This is falling in love in the cruelest way,
This is falling for you when you are worlds away.
When everything feels all over
When everybody seems unkind
I’ll give you a four leaf clover
Take all the worry out of your mind
Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
I was curious if a Taylor Swift song was gonna make it. Her entire discography is in iTunes so chances were big. I’m sad Jeff Daniels and The National did not make it, though! Also, no big country music 😦 Maybe next time!
As I was not officially tagged, I won’t tag anyone. If music is your thing or you feel like doing this one, please do!
