THE NOTES: THE SOUNDTRACK OF MY LIFE TAG


I have always really immersed myself in music from singing along to Human League's 'Don't you want me baby' when I was a little girl to growing up listening to my Dad's eclectic taste in everything from motown and soul, to rock to disco.

The 'Soundtrack of my life TAG' created by LLYMLRS and Zoe London is one of the best TAGs that I have stumbled across as I think that you can really get to know somebody through a selection of their favourite songs.  I TAG everybody who wants to give this a go, even if you don't write a blog it's interesting to see if you can fit a song into every category.

Song you listen to when you're happy?
When i'm happy I like to listen to my favourite songs of the moment, so whatever has been overplayed on my ipod that week. My favourite album at the moment is still AM by the Arctic Monkey's, a song that I like to listen to when i'm happy is Do I wanna know which reminds me of a very happy summer in London.

Song you listen to when you're sad?
I think that music is a big healer so I listen to all sorts of different music to help cheer me up. I've been choosing a lot of songs from Sam Smith at the moment, so I would say: 'I know i'm not the only one.'

What song will you have at your wedding?
I always imagine me walking down the aisle to Florence and the Machine ' Only if for a night' - for some reason I imagine a large church building with its bare walls adorned with wild flowers and candles and Flo at the side singing with a choir and an orchestra. A gal can dream.

What song do you dance around the house to?
When nobody is in, I love a good dance and epic sing along to 'Somebody else' guy' by Jocelyn Brown, anything of that genre really I love a boogie to Chaka Khan and Odyssey, often when i'm cleaning up, classics such as 'Going back to my roots' are essential for optimum cleaning.

Song you play on your headphones when you're out and about?
My recently played songs (from a long train journey from Leeds to Liverpool) are 'Runaway' by Ed Sheeran and Oasis 'Roll with it.' I must have played them over and over a million times on the train, walking back to my flat and walking to work the next morning.

Song you listen to when you're angry?
One of the songs that I seem to always resort back to is: 'All along the watchtower' by Jimi Hendrix, mind blowing guitar riffs and a psychedelic instrumental, it's good catharsis when i'm angry. 

Song you would have at your funeral?
I would have any live versions of 'Gimme Shelter' by the Rolling Stones, if I was being super pedantic it would be specifically their Glastonbury 2013 performance. 

Song that makes you lose your shit at a party?
Oh, 100% Fatman Scoop 'Be Faithful' as soon as the first few bars drop i'm looking for a podium to jump around on. At a few minutes to midnight on my 21st birthday it spookily played and I went crazy.

The last song that you listened to?
Mark Ronson feat Bruno Mars 'Uptown Funk' I love the video.

Your karaoke song?
That old classic, 'Young hearts' by Candi Staton, it's very easy to catch me singing my heart out to that on a Saturday night in Reflex.

What song do you work out to?
Even though I can't stand his songs any other time, in the gym I always seem to have Pitbull songs on, most likely 'International Love.'

Song with the most memories attached?
It's always going to be '505' by the Arctic Monkeys, reminds me of this summer and walking back to my Southwark flat on a balmy evening thinking "I can't believe this is my life" and in a blink of an eye it was gone but that song makes me remember how I felt at that time.

Song that you hate the most?
A Christmas song actually, Jona Lewie 'Stop the calvary' his voice is just so morose, having said that I love 'You will always find me in the kitchen at parties' I always play it before any flat/house party.

Your favourite song of all time?
'Gimme Shelter 'by the Rolling Stones is my favourite song followed by 'Why'd you only call me when you're high' by the Arctic Monkeys.

  1. I loved reading this, and you're totally right - this tag is amazing, can't believe this is the first I've heard/seen of it! I love Gimmie Shelter by The Rolling Stones, especially the cover they performed live with Lady Gaga - incredible. Definitely listening to Jocelyn Brown - Somebody Else's Guy right now haha!
