30 (More Like 60) Song Challenge

Hello!

I was tagged by Bernie @ Bernie’s Musings and Doings, and since I love music so, so much, I thought I would give it a go!

(Oh, and I’ll have two songs for each question, one for lyrical music, and one for instrumental.)

  1. Your favorite song

Gah! I can’t possibly choose! There are way too many. I refuse to answer this question.

2. Your least favorite song

Lyrical: Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) by Silento

I…just…UGH. What is the point of this song, again?

Instrumental: Wanna Get Hype by District 78

I just really…don’t like this song. It’s not music to me.

3. A song that makes you happy

L: Unbelievable by Owl City

I love this song because it’s basically my childhood. Lots of memories… 🙂

I: Spontaneous Me by Lindsey Stirling

I love how bouncy and rhythmic the beat is. It makes me smile. 😀

4. A song that makes you sad

L: Someone Like You by Adele

The way she sings is just so amazing. It makes me kind of sad, yet inspired at the same time.

I: A Song Simply Remixed by Elijah Bossenbroek

The flow of the song is so gripping and emotional to me. But I still love it. ❤

5. A song that reminds you of someone

L: Your Song by Elton John

This song always reminds me of my parents because this was the first song they danced to on their wedding day. ❤

I: Cello Wars by ThePianoGuys

This one makes me think of my brother. He’s a bit of a Star Wars fanatic, and because of this video, he wants to play cello. 🙂

6. A song that reminds you of somewhere

L: Radioactive cover by Pentatonix and Lindsey Stirling

Makes me think of a desolate old city, especially this cover of it. Oh, and this cover + me = ❤ EXTREME LOVE.

I: El Dorado by Two Steps from Hell

Makes me think of a lost city of gold…thus my train of thought ends up thinking of The Road to El Dorado, naturally, hence the name. 😛

7. A song that reminds you of a certain event

L: My Deliverer by Rich Mullins

Puts me right in Egypt along with the Israelites. Such a great, powerful song.

I: Music-Box Dancer cover by Mike Strickland

This always makes me think of ice-skating…Just so light and airy. 😉

8. A song that you know all the words to

Um… all of the songs I listen to?

9. A song you can dance to

L: Good Feeling cover by Lindsey Stirling

This one always makes me want to dance. Plus, the Just Dance format of the video makes me super pumped. 😀

I: Shadows by Lindsey Stirling

Lindsey songs are good for dancing, I guess? 😛 I love bouncing around to this one. 🙂

10. A song that makes you fall asleep

L: Say Something by A Great Big World

This song always makes my eyes droop…

I: Radio Ballet by Eluvium

This is just such a calm, relaxing song to me. I love the simplicity. ❤

11. A song from your favorite band

L: My Lighthouse by Rend Collective

This was the first song I ever heard by RC and now I love their music.

I: I Want You Bach by ThePianoGuys

Don’t know if they count as a band…but I love them so much! 😀

12. A song from a band you hate

L: What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction

Just…bleh. Sorry if you like 1D! 😛

I: Emergency by District 78

I don’t  hate this band, but I don’t necessarily like all of their music…

13. A song that’s a guilty pleasure

L: Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) by Eurythmics

Super catchy, but…lyrics aren’t the best in the world…

I: I don’t really see instrumental music as a guilty pleasure, I guess. I can’t think of any!

14. A song that no one would expect you to love

L: Most 80s and 70s music, I guess. I just really love that era! 🙂

I: Um…anything other than classical music? XD All my friends think I’m strange for liking it. 😛

15. A song that describes you

L: Me Without You by TobyMac

I just love this song. The lyrics mean so much to me. 🙂

I: River Flows in You by Yiruma

Another song that I absolutely love. My music teacher introduced me to this song and I fell in love. ❤

16. A song you used to love but now hate

L: Let it Go by Disney/Demi Lovato

Okay, you might’ve seen that one coming… 😛

I: I don’t usually (usually) love a song than end up hating it. So I can’t say.

17. A song you hear often on the radio

L: Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin

I hear this constantly on the radio, and I really love it. 🙂

I: I don’t really listen to any stations with instrumental music. :\

18. A song you wish you heard on the radio

L: Anything by Pentatonix. I wish I could find a station where they play, if they even do that. 🙂

I: Anything by Lindsey Stirling. I know she’s played for a radio stations before, so that would be cool. 😉

19. A song from your favorite album

L: I don’t usually like whole albums, but any Matt Maher song I’m basically guaranteed to like. ❤

I: I love all the songs on Philip Wesley’s Dark Night of the Soul album. It’s. so. good.

20. A song you listen to when you’re angry

L: Beat It by Michael Jackson

Yeah, so I really like MJ music…And this is a really angry-sounding song, so I thought it would fit.

I: Imperial March cover by Celldweller

It’s got an almost scary-sounding beat. Definitely angry… O_O

21. A song you listen to when you’re happy

L: Safe and Sound by Capital Cities

I don’t know, why but this song makes me so incredibly happy. I really love the use of the trumpets. The video makes me smile too. 🙂

I: Vivaldi vs. Vertigo by David Garrett

Its always fun watching David because he looks like he’s just having so much fun. 😀 I’ve found I really like crossover songs like this.

22. A song you listen to when you’re sad

L: Titanium by Sia (feat. David Guetta)

It’s a cool song, but it makes me inexplicably sad. 😦

I: Midnight Worker by Chance’s End

Another sad song. For me at least. *shrugs* I tend to think the strangest things are sad. 😛

23. A song you want to play at your wedding

L: A Thousand Years cover by Aimee Proal and Lindsey Stirling

Yeah, yeah, it’s a Twilight song, but I still like it a lot. ❤

I: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings – Concerning Hobbits by Vitamin String Quartet

XD I know, I know, maybe not this one…but I would definitely like a nice arrangement of Pachelbel’s Canon. ❤

24. A song you want to play at your funeral

Um…I don’t know?

25. A song that makes you laugh

L: Star Wars Medley cover by Lindsey Stirling and Peter Hollens

Geeky, cheesy, Star Wars fun. What’s not to love? 😀

I: Me and My Cello cover by ThePianoGuys

Again, the video really makes it funny. Love this song. ❤

26. A song that you can play on an instrument

L: Piano Man by Billy Joel

My Dad really loves this song, and it’s pretty fun to play on the piano. A much simpler version, but still. 🙂

I: Spontaneous Me by Lindsey Stirling

I was so proud when I finally learned to play this on piano! I’ve played it a couple times in public for talent shows and fair performances too. I still love it so much. ❤

27. A song you wish you could play

There are so many! I can’t choose just one. 😛

28. A song in a foreign language that you like

L: Rock Me Amadeus by Falco, or La Bamba by Ritchie Valens

I can’t decide which one to choose… 🙂

I: Lord of the Rings Medley cover by Lindsey Stirling

Yes, she does sing in this one. It’s a made-up language, but still… 🙂

29. A song from your childhood

L: I remember loving Raffi songs a lot. The ones I remember most are Mr. Sun, Willoughby Wallaby Woo, and The More We Get Together. They bring back so many memories… ❤

I: I don’t remember listening to instrumental music much when I was younger… But I remember getting really excited when Trans-Siberian Orchestra came on during Christmas time, particularly this song.

30. Your favorite song at this time last year

Um…sorry, but I don’t remember back that far… XD

That’s the challenge! It was a lot of fun finding all of this music. 🙂 Thanks again for tagging me Bernie!

So, have you heard any of these songs? Do we share a similar taste in music? Let me know in the comments! ❤
