The Playlist Shuffle Tag

Happy Thanksgiving ALL!!! I’ve been sick for the past week with a bad cold and asthma which is why i’ve been a bit M.I.A here on the blog. I’m honestly thankful to finally being able to breathe a bit better just in time for Thanksgiving with the family. I’m also very thankful for this wonderful community of bloggers that welcomed me into the blogosphere 6 months ago today. Seriously Ladies & Gents, you all are AMAZING human beings that can turn any bad day into a good one just by me opening my WordPress app. I am thankful for all of the comments that remind me there are people out there reading my shared thoughts, the likes & the shares on Twitter…it feels so good to finally connect with people who get my love for all things books & have taken the time out to get to know the gal behind the screen. Now, on to the tag lol…

Anne from InkedBrownies tagged me & stated the reason as “because I can’t help but wonder what’s coming through those earphones in her profile picture!  This alone had me raising a brow in question of which headphones she was referring to. Whelp in my profile pic I had headphones & I’ve just changed my profile pic this morning only to realize that my headphones make an appearance in this new photo as well LMAO! I was also tagged by Danielle at Booksvertigoandtea, funny thing Danielle that you would list a Beatles song as 1 of your 12 cuz I struggled finding my FAVORITE Beatles song on Youtube & therefore left it out—>Come Together is a song I listen to daily & always comes up no matter how many times I shuffle, it knows I love it so much lol. If you’re not already following these lovely gals, please do I guarantee they will only brighten up your Reader 😉

Tag Rules:

  1. List the first 10 12 songs that come on shuffle (no skipsies)
  2. Then write your favorite lyric (or verse) from that song *if it’s worth to mention*
  3. Tag others

Disclaimer—I am all over the place with my music & can easily go from singing my heart out over a ballad to full out failed attempts at dancing like Shakira *no shame in my game* 


#1 Shakira-La Tortura Reggaeton Remix

No pido que todos los días sean de sol

No pido que todos los viernes sean de fiesta

Tampoco te pido que vuelvas rogando perdón

Si lloras con los ojos secos

Y hablando de ella


#2 Blues Traveler-Run Around (this man & his harmonica bring back so many memories of Summer road trips to Upstate NY with my Uncle & cousins)

And I’ll lie too and say I don’t mind

And as we seek so shall we find

And when you’re feeling open I’ll still be here

But not without a certain degree of fear

Of what will be with you and me

I still can see things hopefully

*for any Roseanne fans, you may have seen Blues Traveler on the show a few times since he made several appearances 🙂


#3 Emeli Sandé-My Kind Of Love (Redone and Alex P Remix) 

‘Cause when you given up

When no matter what you do, it’s never good enough

When you never thought that it could ever get this tough

That’s when you feel my kind of love


#4 Amy Winehouse-You Know I’m No Good

I cheated myself

Like I knew I would

I told ya I was troubled

You know that I’m no good

I cheated myself

Like I knew I would

I told ya I was troubled

Yeah, ya know that I’m no good


#5 J Balvin feat. Pharell Williams, BIA, Sky-Safari

Doesn’t matter when or where this song comes on, i’m rolling windows down & busting a move lol


#6 Nas Featuring Amy Winehouse-Cherry Wine

I want someone who like the champagne I like

My a-alike, someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night

She teach me how to live, she ain’t afraid of life

Not easily impressed with the rich and famous life

Cause she done been there and heard all the rumors before


#7 Duffy-Syrup & Honey

Don’t you be wastin’ all your money

On syrup and honey because I’m sweet enough

Don’t you be usin’ every minute on makin’ a livin’

Because we got our love


#8 Adele-Send My Love (To Your New Lover)

Send my love to your new lover

Treat her better

We gotta let go of all of our ghosts

We’ve both know we ain’t kids no more


#9 Kehlani-Gangsta (from Suicide Squad Soundtrack)

OBSESSED with this soundtrack as a whole!


#10 Mary J. Blige featuring Smif ‘N’ Wesson- I Love You (Remix)


#11 Florence + The Machine-Shake It Out

And every demon wants his pound of flesh

But I like to keep some things to myself

I like to keep my issues strong

It’s always darkest before the dawn

Oh Florence…this song is always on heavy rotation on my playlist. I have 3 of her albums & can’t go a day w/out listening to those vocals.


#12 Mary J. Blige-Someone To Love Me feat Diddy & Lil Wayne (Oh Man! if this were an old school record I would’ve burned right through it!)

The war’s I’ve fought, scars that I’ve garnered

The hustle, I got that honest from my father

Mix me with violence, blend me with peace

Combine me with hate and I can’t face defeat (nope)

I did it all in a week

Still incomplete as I stand on my feet

It take a lot to still dance to the beat

Skin more cold and callous than concrete


I tag all who are interested in doing this tag, I had a blast with this one! I love tags that make me laugh while completing them. I laughed at how random I can be with my music taste & when picking my favorite lyrics I also had a few moments of deep thought. This tag was fun & I could kick myself for hesitating on doing it cuz I don’t know about ya’ll but my playlist is an extension of me & that can get personal real quick LMAO! No regrets here though so thanks Anne & Danielle! 😉

    1. It sure does, thanks Drew 😃 with over 4,000 songs in my iTunes, I doubt I even have a type but this is a small list of my faves lol. 6 months flew by which I guess is a good thing, must mean I’m having fun 😂

      1. 😂😂😂 yea it’s more than I thought I had but I have a bit of everything in there. Since it’s so large & I’m so indecisive when making playlist on the go lol, my listening is always random 😉

      2. Ha, oh man, my listening is hardly ever random, I’m very particular and generally listen to what I want to listen to, not just random songs. That’s what I actually found really cool about this tag when Danielle tagged me, it got me to listen to random songs and some quality tunes that I really like but hadn’t heard in ages.😀


  1. I’m sorry to hear you’ve been ill recently. That always sucks doesn’t it but at least you were feeling a little better for Thanksgiving today. Also congratulations on reaching your six month blogiversary! 😀
    I haven’t listened to many of the songs that came up on your list for this tag but I LOVE Florence and the Machine. I’m the same because I have to listen to at least one of her songs each time my iPod comes on. 🙂

      1. That’s all right, and yeah it always sucks when you’re ill over holidays.
        I’d love to go and see her live, I reckon that would be an amazing experience. She’s on pretty much all of my playlists as well, then again I don’t have many playlists to choose from at the moment! 😀
        Thanks! Happy Thanksgiving to you too! 😀

  3. I am so happy you are feeling better! My best friend IRL suffers from asthma as well. She typically spends a weekend in the hospital every spring and fall because of it 😦 I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Congrats on 6 months of blogging!!! I am so excited for you. So happy we found each other in the blogoshpere 🙂 I love the new profile picture by the way. You have the most beautiful lips ever. Seriously, I’m jealous.
