Musical Shuffle Tag

I was tagged by Clo @ Cuppa Clo literally a year ago, but lately I’ve been listening to a lot of music to drown out my thoughts so I was particularly inspired to do this one. (The tag was created by Bex @ Becca Leighanne.)

  • Put your music player (Spotify, iTunes, etc.) on shuffle.
  • For 5-10 songs, what book/character/ship/plot comes to mind? You don’t have to explain your choices, but you can.
  • Tag 5-10 bloggish friends and see what they come up with!

“architecture” – maisie peters

β†’ Adam Parrish x Ronan Lynch

Your bags are packed, my words are stacked
Towers of paperbacks with all that I won’t say
The dreams we used to make
Now your train ticket takes my breath with it
But you’re the biggest and the brightest
That this place has ever made
And I can’t ask you to stay.


“take on the world” – you me at six

β†’ Charlotte Holmes & Jamie Watson

You and I, we were made to thrive
And I am your future, I am your past
Never forget that we were built to last
Step out of the shadows and into my life
Silence the voices that haunt you inside.


“invincible” – chris wallace

β†’ Alex Claremont-Diaz

I see explosions in the sky
Just like the fire in your eyes
Let’s live like we’re running out of time

When they tell you it’s wrong and you know that it’s right
Cause your dreams are in and it starts tonight
Oh, you’re invincible.


“ghosts” – gabrielle aplin

β†’ Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Soon it will all fall apart,
And their roads will have no way,
And you’ll be the one laughing,
As their fences fade away,
And instead of being left there, feeling all alone,
Break down the house you made of match sticks,
And set fire to their throne.


“hey there delilah” – plain white t’s [KHS cover]

β†’ Grace Brisbane x Sam Roth

But just believe me, girl
Someday I’ll pay the bills with this guitar
We’ll have it good
We’ll have the life we knew we would
My word is good.


“phoenix” – Chrissy Costanza & Cailin Russo

β†’ Tala & Alex & the Banders

So are you gonna die today or make it out alive?
You gotta conquer the monster in your head and then you’ll fly
Fly, phoenix, fly
It’s time for a new empire
Go bury your demons then tear down the ceiling
Phoenix, fly.


“we were kings” – ryan star

β†’ We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

We were young and lost
When we were kings
I will never regret
The scars we earned
How could you forget we ruled the world?

I tag: anyone who wants to participate!

One thought on “Musical Shuffle Tag

  1. OMG. Some of these songs are such perfect fits.
    Just Say the Word is absolutely Jamie and Charlotte.
    Invincible for Alex is such a good fit.
    Hey There Delilah for Grace and Sam is also so perfect.
    And I love Architecture for Ronan and Adam (but also strangely Blue and Noah)
