The Playlist Shuffle Tag

I’ve taken part in the Playlist Shuffle Tag a couple of times before, but I love music almost as much as I love reading so I’m not complaining about being tagged again.  I was tagged by Meghan at Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews. Thanks so much for the tag Meghan, I had a lot of fun with this one.

The Playlist Shuffle Tag


  • Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating!)
  • Tag 10 others to do it as well

White Lies – Unfinished Business

“The sand in the hour glass is running low
I came through thunder, the cold wind, the rain and the snow
To find you awake by your windowsill”

Macklemore feat. Skylar Grey – Glorious

“Been chasing dreams, but I never slept
I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind”

Lorde – Bravado

“It’s in your bloodstream
A collision of atoms that happens before your eyes
It’s a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size”

Charlie Puth – Attention

“You just want attention
You don’t want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new”

Neon Jungle – Fool Me (Acoustic)

“I don’t wanna learn my lessons
So if you fool me
Fool me again”

OneRepublic – Life in Colour

“Well this is life in colour
Today feels like no other
And the darkest greys
The sun bursts, clouds break”

Imagine Dragons – Thunder

“I was uptight, wanna let loose
I was dreaming of bigger things
And wanna leave my old life behind”

Taylor Swift – Mine

“I was a flight risk with a fear of fallin’
Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts”

Taylor Swift – End Game

“I don’t wanna touch you, I don’t wanna be
Just another ex-love you don’t wanna see”

I have over 600 songs on my iPod, but for some reason there are two Taylor Swift songs that appear next to each other when I shuffle and select the first fifteen for this tag.

Foster the People – Miss You

“Oh, I want to change it
I will live a life that makes you smile
When I’m done here and long gone”

Little Mix – See Me Now

“They said I couldn’t, they told me that I wouldn’t
But if they could see me now
They’d see I’m something, that I’m not scared of nothing”

The All-American Rejects – Night Drive

“I’ll stay strong
I’m pushing on the pedal till I break dawn
So I’m gone, go find another shoulder you can cry on”

Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks

“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run”

This is an up-beat song, so it really messed with my mind when I actually listened to the lyrics and paid attention to what they were saying. 

Fall Out Boy – Centuries

“Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries”

I can’t believe how long it took for Fall Out Boy to appear, I have all of their songs on my iPod and there are a lot of them.

Little Mix – Stand Down

“Now I’m done with all your negativity
And I’m gonna let it wash all over me
I’ll be stronger than your words”

The Playlist Shuffle Tag (1)

I’m not going to tag anyone else in The Playlist Shuffle Tag, instead let me know what song plays first when you put your iPod on shuffle?

Are there any songs I ended up with for this tag on your iPod, and are any of these artists favourites of yours? Are there any songs you love that messed with your mind when you actually paid attention to what the lyrics said. And if there’s anyone else out there who wants to take part consider yourself tagged.

  2. Taylor Swift showing up twice in the tag, lol. But it’s funny that both the songs are some of my favorites from Taylor. Speak Now is my ultimate favorite album by her.
    And I totally feel you with Pumped Up Kicks. It seems like an up-beat song, until you listen to the lyrics. Another song which the lyrics surprised me a lot was Weekend, by Last Dinosaurs. The song is also quite fun, but the lyrics are actually a bit sad. They’re quite an underrated band, and I think you’d enjoy them if you like Imagine Dragons and OneRepublic. Anyway, just a random recommendation there.
    Nice tag, Beth!

    1. Well I have all her albums on my iPod so I guess it was likely she’d turn up more than once, because of the odds and all that. I don’t think I could choose my favourites, I just have too many, but I do love Mine. 🙂
      Sometimes it takes a while for me to realise, I guess I pay more attention to the song as a whole than just the lyrics. I’m always up for more recommendations so thanks, I will definitely check out Last Dinosaurs, especially if they’re compatible to Imagine Dragons and OneRepublic! 🙂
      Thanks so much. ❤️

    1. Yeah it was a lot of fun getting to take part again. And like I said I love music and have so many songs on my iPod so I could take part in this hundreds of tones and still come up with different songs. 😀
      That’s another one where I was happily singing along not realising what I was singing. Then I listened to the lyrics and was like “oh”.

  3. I’m a big fan of Taylor Swift and Little Mix so I smiled when I saw you had two songs for each on this list 🙂
    I use spotify on my phone, but the first song that came up when i put the songs on shuffle was stay stay stay by none other than Taylor Swift (I swear that’s the truth!)

    1. Lorde has some amazing songs, and in my opinion everything by Imagine Dragons is a great pick. ❤️ Yeah you can never tell what you get when you shuffle, of the hundreds and hundreds of songs sometimes it just works out that way. 🙂
