I Love Music Tag


What are your five favourite songs right now?
Just a note; the songs I like following on from this question are not necessarily popular right now (or even this century). Love is Easy – McFly, Millionaires – The Script, Red - Taylor Swift, Everything has Changed – Taylor Swift and Rule the World – Take That.

What are your favourite bands of all time?
Take That, McFly, The Script, Coldplay and... hmmm.... this may sound a bit weird but I am really starting to like The Smiths.

What is your most played song on ITunes?
Well, I don’t actually have ITunes and so I’ll do my most played song on Spotify which is Lego House by Ed Sheeran. I think that the main reason for this is because Rupert Grint was in the Music Video which was brilliant!

What is the last album you bought?
Some Nights by Fun.

What song can you not get out of your head?
Red – Taylor Swift.

What is the last song you downloaded?
The last one was The Power of Love by Gabrielle Aplin as I already have the original version.

Who is your favourite band right now?
McFly... but Kodaline are pretty good as well.

What is your favourite type of music?
I love a lot of music but especially 80’s pop and Indie.

On your most played list, what is number 10?
Viva la Vida by Coldplay.

What was the first gig you ever went to?
I have only ever been to three concerts, the first of which (2011) was a few people/bands including McFly!!! Also if I remember rightly The Script and Olly Murs were there as were JLS

What was your favourite gig?
The one stated above.

And finally if there was one band/album/song you would recommend everyone listening to RIGHT NOW, what would it be? And finally
Band: Kodaline Song: Millionaires – The Script.

If I Were...

If I were a gemstone, I'd be a sapphire
If I were a scent, I'd be honeysuckle
If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be purple Converse trainers
If I were the weather, I'd be snow
If I were a facial expression, I'd be a smile

If I were a car, I'd be a red mini cooper
If I were a time of day, I'd be 6 am
If I were a month, I'd be December
If I were a place, I'd be Hogwarts
If I were a liquid, I'd be Coca Cola
If I were a taste, I'd be lemonade.

If I were a sea animal, I'd be a starfish
If I were a food, I'd be a slice of pizza
If I were a colour, I'd be indigo
If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a Piano
If I were a flower, I'd be a Rose
If I were a song, I'd be Grace Kelly by MIKA
 
If I were a planet, I'd be Saturn
If I were an object, I'd be a Notebook
If I were a fruit, I'd be a blueberry
If I were a sound, I'd be the sound of typing
If I were a day of the week I'd be Saturday
I think my favourite one of these is the object as I love writing. I tag anyone that wants to use this.

Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares

“Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favourite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right person to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? As they find themselves falling for one another on paper, they wonder if they would have the same chemistry in real life.  Can they connect in real life as well as they have through the pages of a red moleskin book?”

I found this book heart warming and very sweet. The characters seem so real that they could practically leap off the page. Throughout there are numerous burst of humour keeping up the Christmassy spirit. I love how Lily is cheeky and sarcastic where as Dash is quite honest and as the title says “daring”. It is great how the book can be dipped in and out of and is a very quick read. 

However I would not say that it is one of the best books that I have read and it could have done with a better plot structure with more twists and turns. There were also some points where I found myself having to put it down and go read something else out of quite frankly boredom. On the blurb it states “Fans of Stephen Chbosky and John Green will fall in love with Dash and Lily...”  I am a fan of both of these authors and I certainly did not fall in love with this book.
“I wish to believe.” A quote from Lily.
