30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 10


Day 10 – Put Your Music on Shuffle and Write the First 10 Songs

Anyone that knows me knows that as well as my books, my great love is singing. I don’t think I’m good at it but I love singing out loudly (the louder, the better it comes out). Long drives are the best because it very quickly turns into a live show featuring yours truly. for this prompt, I just stuck my Spotify on shuffle and this is the result. I’m quite happy with the little playlist it created. Maybe it will be turned into a new CD for my car.

  1. Beautiful Trauma – P!nk
    • This has turned into one of those songs that I’m going to listen to constantly until I can’t stand to listen to it anymore. P!nk is great, so many amazing songs and so many feels.
  2. Bitter Water – The Oh Hellos
    • Another band that my little brother introduced me to. There are so many great songs from them, but this is among my favourites.
  3. Gay Pirates – Cosmo Jarvis
    • Such a happy, upbeat song with really disturbing lyrics. Great song though. My little brother introduced me to Cosmo Jarvis years ago, his music reminds me a lot of Newton Faulkner’s music which I love.
  4. Carry on Wayward Son – Kansas
    • Supernatural fans; you all know.
  5. Over My Head (Cable Car) – The Fray
    • There will always be a soft spot in my heart for The Fray.
  6. We Know the Way – Moana Original Motion Picture
    • Everyone loves a little bit of Disney in their life. Moana was a fantastic movie and the soundtrack really made the movie (and the Rock ofc)
  7. Numb/Encore – Linkin Park
    • It always makes me sad to think about Chester Bennington. Linkin Park made so much music that just understood people and the horrible things they were going through. Truly heartbreaking.
  8. Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked – Cage The Elephant
    • I love this song because it makes me think of the Amazon original show, Lucifer, which is sassy and sexy and hilarious.
  9. Iris – The Goo Goo Dolls
    • A rather depressing song but one I love nonetheless
  10. The Artist In The Ambulance – Thrice
    • Such an underrated song, reminds me of a time before Borders closed and all the Glaswegian goths used to hang out at the back of Borders and the GoMA.


It is a bit of a mismatched taste in music and I think this represents my taste in music quite well.

See you tomorrow for 11!
