List ten songs that you’re loving right now. 30 day writing challenge.

Okay guys this is day 7 of the writing challenges. You can find my original post here. This is an interesting question because my music tastes are dependent on my mood and the mood I want to be having! I can absolutely love a song and will listen to it on repeat for days, weeks even, and yet i’ll not like the artist or the album. For me it is all about that one song that is playing to me. It’s about the beat, the sound and mostly the lyrics. I like music that sings to my soul, I like music that dances through my soul.

Oh music, music music. Ten songs that i’m loving right now. I’m a very indecisive kinda person and I’m not always fully aware of myself, so, I decided I would ask hubby and my daughter what songs they felt I listen to a lot….”the same song, over and over, seriously it’s like you get up pick a song and whack repeat!”…ooops!!

Okay so this mornings ‘repeat’ song, this was also yesterdays repeat song, in fact this song gets whacked on repeat at the very least once a month. She’s always a woman to me. Fyfe Dangerfield.

 

and next in line is…the lazy song, because in life we all need that one song that say’s fuck you world today I swear I ain’t doing anything :).

 

Song number three is…oh dear God I gotta go check my youtube history!

Okay, I love this song, I absolutely love the cheesiness to it, I love the beat, I love the concept.

 

Okay song number four! It’s getting difficult now. It would seem everyone is right, I just listen to the same songs over and over and over again! On youtube I have a playlist that I use for when I’m writing, I created a couple of years ago when I was doing nanowrimo, so let’s have a quick look through that and see which songs I always go back to.

 

Song number six! I almost forgot this song, Iris, Goo Goo dolls. I love this song beyond words.  For me this is the ultimate love song and I love the video!

 

 

Song number seven, no reason, just simply loving the lyrics to this song.

 

Okay, actually this might be the best love song ever. This is such an intense love song. I love it, I love the words so much. Song number eight!

 

Song number nine!

 

and number ten! So hard to choose which Cyndi Lauper song though because I love them all, but this one, for some reason has always held a special spot for me.

 

I always find it a little odd to sit back and take a closer look at my music tastes as I don’t feel they reflect me, they do obviously they do, but I often find people are surprised by my tastes and mainly by my love of love songs. I actually love all things love related, especially love songs!

Firyal18 asked me the following questions, thank you :).
1. What is your greatest fear?

My greatest fear, dear God I actually have a lot of fears but the majority of them I am in control of. I fear spiders, but someones gotta be the spider catcher in our house and that’s me, so I suck it up close my eyes and shoo the little buggars out the window! I’m also scared of the dark and fear waking up in the night to a power cut! I fear the devil which is odd as I write about him so often but in reality the concept of the devil and evil causes me huge amounts of fear. I ‘m gonna go ahead and say that my biggest fear, the fear I have never been able to get a handle on is…roller coasters that go upside down. Or any ride that goes upside down. That feeling of being upside down causes a primal raw reaction in me I panic extremely panic, just thinking about it makes me want to hide in a corner!
2. What inspires you?

I am inspired by emotions. Pleasure, pain, excitement, loss, hurt, love, lust. Emotions let of an energy that most people are unaware of and for me, seeing that energy is easy. The deeper I feel an emotion the more inspired I am to write about it. The emotions are not always my own, sometimes it’s something I’ve seen or something someone has said to me.I am also greatly inspired by nature and find it an amazing medium to work with, through nature I can express thoughts in a more private and sensitive way, through the storms that crash down onto us to the moons shy and crying light that falls for her dying stars. Nature gives me an outlet for the emotions.
3. What are your pet peeves?

Rude people!! Oh my goodness I hate rude people! Why are people rude? I’ve never really understood how people can be so cut of from the world that they believe they are the only ones that exist.

Traffic lights, seriously people just wait for the bloody green man before you cross, is it really that bloody hard!

Bullshit…that’s a pet peeve, when people go on about honesty and with hold a load of stuff, cos you know with holding isn’t lying an all and for me with holding is the one that’s gonna break my trust.Cos when you with hold information it invalidates every single word you have ever said.
4. What are the three things that can’t be missing in your bag?

A bag. I don’t carry a bag they’re just things that get on my nerves they’re extra things I have to carry and remember and they move and you have to keep putting it back on your shoulder and my goodness it’s a lot of hard work! If it don’t fit in my pocket it ain’t coming with me!

However the thing I won’t leave home without is actually my keys, it’s a security thing, even if i’m out with hubby and he has keys, I still always take my keys with me!
5. What are you excited about right now?

Nothing :(.
6. Why do you blog?

It was start blogging or get myself committed into an asylum! I originally set up my blog under the recommendations of my creative writing tutor. I continue with my blog because writing gives my soul a little teeny tiny piece of freedom.
7. Do you like being female? Why?

Tough question…no. As crazy as it sounds I don’t like being female. I don’t like that every month I get a period a constant reminder that I am female. I don’t like that every single fucking man thinks my tits are there for him to look at…nope, fuck off, eyes up. I hate the fact that as a female writer of erotic poetry my inbox goes into over drive every time I write about sex…seriously boys grow up, cos I write it don’t mean I want it! And do men have this problem? If a man write a little sexy poem does his inbox suddenly go into over drive…no didn’t think so! I don’t like that as a female there are expectations of my behaviour… I must like shopping cos I got tits and pussy…nope. I must be soppy and soft hearted and floral skirts high heeled shoes…cos I got tit and a pussy, again nope. Here, here, here have all this pink stuff cos your a girl and you must love pink….no, go away, fuck you!
8. The word that best describe you will be……

Forgiving…until the point where I find you playing me, then I am the most unforgiving person you will find.
9. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

I do crazy daily! Most crazy…skinny dipping 🙂 ha ha

Waking up one morning and deciding it was time for me to finish my education…signed up to start my degree couple of hours later!

So hard to find crazy when so much of what I do is crazy!
20. What does fulfilment mean to you?

Oh I don’t actually know. Fulfillment suggests that our needs have been fully met and we are completely at peace, but our needs change daily so I’m not sure that we can ever truly know what fulfillment is or how we could reach it.

I’m not going crazy am I, this does say question 20!?

 

Okay so i’ve done the hard bit 🙂 Tommorrow I will go about tagging ten lovely bloggers to carry on this marvelous award. Again Firyal18 thank you so, so, so much :).
