Flashback

I live with the flashbacks everyday
I do what I can, to keep them at bay
Now I’m having to face them, completely head on
Im doing my best, my best to keep strong

The flashbacks they come thick and fast
I wish I knew how long they will last
The memories of that day, ingrained in my mind
I’m trying to feel better in anyway I can find

The emotions are raw, anger, fear and self blame
I feel the sadness, I feel the pain
Reprocessing these things cuts me deep
I’m told I am strong, but I feel weak

30 day song challenge

Wow I can’t believe I’m actually 3 days behind 😂🙈 given it’s now past midnight. I really need to pull myself together and do these everyday. At least I get to make this post longer with 3 songs which is good.

So I’ve been doing the 30 day song challenge on here just for a bit of fun, I did it on my Instagram about a month ago but thought it would be cool to share it on here as well.

I love music of many different genres and I really enjoy sharing songs I like with others. It’s also a good thing to share as it gives my followers a chance to get to know me better.

So without further a do I will be doing Monday, Tuesday and now Wednesday’s songs in one post.

Day 13: A song you like from the 70’s

Dream on- Aerosmith (linked below if anyone wants to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=L9srmft6STc

Released in 1973, I first heard it when I watched a series called Cold Case, it was featured at the end of an episode and I loved it. I also recognised the fact that Eminem released a song called Sing for the moment it features the chorus of this song, I liked that song growing up, so it would stand to reason that I would like this song too. I love the lyrics, the melody and the guitar solos. This song makes me feel emotions mainly a touch of sadness purely based on the beginning of the song, especially with the lyrics but I do find myself kinda bopping to the song when it gets towards the middle to end. All in all a lovely song and 100% worth a listen.

Day 14: A song you’d love to be played at your wedding

Perfect- Ed Sheeran (Linked below)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2Vv-BfVoq4g

This song is just beautiful in every single way! I love Ed Sheeran anyway like his voice is amazing and he has released some amazing songs but I do have a soft spot for this song. I love the lyrics to this song, I find them very relatable as me and my partner met when we were still in our teens so I feel that this song describes our relationship well, hence why for me this would be a perfect wedding song if I was to ever marry him. This song is stunning and it’s up there with my top favourites. Definitely worth a listen for sure.

Day 15: A song you like that’s a cover by another artist

Toxic- Alex & Sierra (linked below)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zWlMSjAZOzk

This song was originally released by Britney Spears I loved the original and I love this version. Alex & Sierra won X Factor (the American version) in 2013, they auditioned with this song and I loved how different they made it to the original. They then went on to cover it properly and I absolutely love it. I love how they slowed it down, I love both of their vocals on the song as well, I think they sang it just beautifully. So for anyone who likes hearing covers this one is highly recommended.

30 day song challenge

So me being on time lasted long 😂 late yet again but means I can do two songs in one post.

This month I am doing the 30 day song challenge on here, I’ve already done it on Instagram but thought I’d repeat it and do it on here too.

I love music, all different types and I really like sharing songs with other people as well and it helps everyone get to know me better.

Day 11: A song you never get tired of

I bet you look good on the dance floor- Arctic Monkeys (linked below if anyone wants to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uQNyTo4k_TA

This song is actually one of my all time favourite songs. I love how upbeat it is, I love songs with guitars, anything that has a nice guitar solo then I’m all over it! I love the sound it makes. I like the lyrics to this song and I just find that it’s a song that makes me feel good. I re-discovered this song last year and since then I can’t get enough of it. I highly recommend it if you’ve never heard it before.

Day 12: A song from your preteen years

All the things she said- Tatu (linked below)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8mGBaXPlri8

What can I say about this song? I remember listening to this when I was about 10 going on 11 did that make me a preteen? I pretty much peg it from ages 9-12 I’d say that’s preteen. Anyways I heard it on the music channel when I was about 10 and I instantly loved it! I loved the fast pace of the song and the voices of Tatu. I just find the song really catchy and I do occasionally listen to it. Not one of my all time favourites but I do like the song and it is worth a listen. I obviously loved it more back then but not as much now.

30 day song challenge

Yay I actually remembered to do it today 😂🙌🏻👏🏻

So this month I am doing the 30 day song challenge. I did it on my Instagram last month and thought it would be fun to do it on here aswell.

I love music, I love all different genres, voices, I love songs that are happy, sad, songs with meaning and songs that just make you feel good. I love sharing songs with others in the hopes that they love them as much as I do.

Day 10: A song that makes you sad

Cherry- Lana Del Rey (linked below, for anyone who wants to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-yuBpUrvpLQ

Yep another Lana Del Rey song! I’m such a massive fan of her music. She makes me feel many emotions when I listen to her songs. This song isn’t what I would call majorally depressing, or even about anything that is really sad, however it does tug at me a bit. Her voice is so beautiful and haunting and then to match that you have the melody of the actual song thats slow and painfully beautiful. I feel that anyone going through a tough time in a relationship or anyone who’s going through the end of one, then this song would be relatable. This is up there with my favourite songs. If I had a top 10 in my mind I feel this song would be up there. It’s worth a listen and to anyone who does listen to it I hope you love it as much as I do.

30 day song challenge

Surprise, surprise I’m late again 😂 this month I am doing the 30 day song challenge. I did it on my Instagram last month but thought it would be fun to do it on here aswell.

I love music and I love sharing my favourite songs with others. I thought it would be good to share this as it will help you all get to know me better.

So as I said I’m late again so will be again sharing two songs, yesterday’s one and technically today’s as it’s now midnight!

Day 8: A song about drugs or alcohol

Heroin- Lana Del Rey (linked below, if anyone wants to listen to it)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KA1dUubMjQ0

I think everyone has established that I am a big fan of Lana Del Rey’s music. I love all her songs. This song actually pulled at my heart strings a little bit, the first time I heard it. I found it very relatable. My Dad is a heroin addict so this song I felt depicted addiction well. Like one of the lyrics “how it gave you everything and took your life away” this one line I found relatable in terms of my Dad. Not only that her voice is so hauntingly beautiful that I just get drawn into all her music. The melody of this song is just as beautiful as her voice, I just found it impossible not to love this song.

Day 9: A song that makes you happy

Gold- Byron Langley (linked below, if anyone wants to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=En0LJxAKdTw

So I’m not a massive fan of Byron Langley or anything but I do love this song. As I understand he’s a YouTuber, I haven’t ever watched any of his videos I only found this song because I watch Joe Sugg’s videos, he’s friends with Byron Langley and he had featured this song many times at the end of his videos. When I heard it I just found this song so catchy and it’s just a feel good song all round to be honest. It does make me feel happy as it’s upbeat when it gets to the chorus. It’s 100% worth a listen.

30 day song challenge

This month I am doing the 30 day song challenge. I did it on Instagram but thought it would be fun to do on here aswell.

I love music and I love sharing my favourite songs with others. As it’s now midnight I will be doing two in one post. So yesterday’s one and now today’s. I must remember to post one everyday before I get confused 😂

Day 6: A song that makes you want to dance

Pull up to mi bumper- Konshens ft J Capri (linked below, if anyone wants to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3RFUEiqUhY4

So this song is not for everybody and I am surprised that I even like it. I saw it featured on one of my friends Instagram videos, she did a dance to it and it prompted me to listen to the song and I actually found myself enjoying it. On my Instagram I actually initially said Sean Paul- Temperature as one of the songs I like to dance to, but since hearing this song I’ve changed my mind. If I’m on a night out this kind of music or anything that’s R&B is what I most enjoy dancing to.

Day 7: A song to drive to

Old town road- Lil Nas X ft Billy Ray Cyrus (linked below if anyone wants to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_ae5Ap77b7k

I love this song so much! As soon as I heard it, I fell in love with this song. I don’t drive but if I did, this song would 100% be played. I love the melody, I love the lyrics and I love the fact that it’s got a bit of a rap vibe and then you get Billy Ray Cyrus’ country voice coming into it with the chorus and one of the verses. I recommend this song to everyone. Definitely worth a listen.

30 day song challenge

This month I am doing the 30 day song challenge. I did it on my Instagram last month so thought it would be fun to do it on here.

I love music and love sharing my favourite songs with others aswell. I forgot to post yesterday’s one so will be doing yesterday’s and today’s one in one post.

Day 4: A song that reminds you of someone you’d rather forget.

Walk away- Christina Aguilera (Linked below, if anyone wants to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cnuqv9R76Rk

This song actually means a lot to me. I find it’s a pretty personal song to me. It reminds me of when I was raped, so it reminds me of the boys who did that to me. It’s just some of the lyrics, I find it describes how I felt after it had happened.

I used to listen to it a lot after it happened to me as I found it very relatable. Not only that but Christina Aguilera has the most beautiful voice, and this song is simply beautiful. It’s 100% worth a listen.

Day 5: A song that needs to be played loud.

Blinding lights- The Weeknd (Linked below)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fHI8X4OXluQ

I love this song so much! I love the melody, I love dancing around to it just such a catchy, feel good song to listen to. I enjoy singing along to it aswell. It’s worth a listen for sure.

30 day song challenge

This month I am doing the 30 day song challenge. I did it last month on my Instagram and thought it would be fun to do it on here too.

I love music and I thought it would be cool to share my favourite songs with all of you so that everyone can get to know me a little better.

Day 3: A song that reminds you of summertime

Taki Taki- DJ Snake F.t Selena Gomez and Cardi B. (Linked below if you want to listen to it)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ixkoVwKQaJg

I love this song, it wasn’t released in summer but I spent all of last summer listening to it. I love the beat of this song and I can’t help but rap along with Cardi B. It’s such a catchy song and easily one of my favourite fast paced songs

30 Day song challenge

I’m doing the 30 day song challenge as I did it last month on Instagram so thought I would do it on here as well for something to do.

I love music and love sharing songs I like with others.

Day 2: A song you like with a number in the title

Lily Allen- 22 (linked below if you want to listen)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4uRC4UGpgGI

I actually love this song, it’s one of those ones I don’t listen to often but when I do, I remember how much I enjoy it. I was never overly keen on Lily Allen, I liked some songs she done but I wasn’t like a big fan or anything. This song though is lovely, I like the melody and the lyrics and there’s no denying that she’s got a beautiful voice.
