So here’s my fourth and final music challenge post! But before I get into the challenge, I need to talk about the fact that I went to see Busted last night… For free! There’s a festival near me called Festival Too which is held every year and it’s completely free entry and this years top act were Busted. It was actually my first concert and oh my god, the atmosphere was amazing! The second Busted walked out everyone was screaming, and then they opened with Air Hostess and everyone was screaming it at the top of their lungs. Of course they went on to sing their other classics; Year 3000, Crashed The Wedding, Sleeping With The Light On and That’s What I Go To School For, along with a few of their newer songs too. I didn’t really get any good pictures because my phone’s camera decided it wanted to completely suck last night, but here’s the best one I did get.
Okay so, music challenge, as before here’s a reminder of the challenge.
Day 22: A song that motivates you
Look For Me – Chipmunk feat. Talay Riley
Now this isn’t a song that motivates me now because I honestly couldn’t think of one, but I remember years ago we had a crosstrainer (I think?) and I used to exercise to this on repeat because for whatever reason it just used to motivate me – maybe I should use this as motivation to start using my exercise bike again!
Day 23: A song that you think everybody should listen to
Rain – The Script
Okay so technically I already used The Script, but… It was them featured on a David Guetta song. So, this is their new single, only released 2 days ago and it is amazing! I literally cannot wait for the album, and I’m hoping I’m going to be able to see them live this year or next year depending on tour dates. We’ve been waiting for 2 and a half years for new music but it was totally worth the wait!
Day 24: A song by a band/group you wish were still together
S Club Party – S Club 7
Come on who doesn’t wish S Club 7 were still together? I so wish I’d been able to see them when they did a reunion tour a couple of years ago! I’m not ashamed to admit I own all their albums.
Day 25: A song by an artist no longer living
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go – Wham!
So technically I’m putting this in because of George Michael but of course he was part of Wham and this is such a good song. There were so many good songs I could have chosen from so many different artists because we’ve lost so many over the last couple of years but I felt like this was my favourite of the ones I thought of.
Day 26: A song that makes you want to fall in love
Let Me In – Grouplove
I found a love songs playlist and didn’t really like many of the songs on it so I thought “I know, I’ll look up the soundtrack for TFIOS because I love the relationship between Hazel and Gus. And it’s made me want to watch the film again now so as soon as I’m done with this post I’m watching it!
Day 27: A song that breaks your heart
When We Were Young – Adele
Now this may seem like a strange choice, but if there’s any UK Neighbours fans reading you’ll remember that this is the song they played over the scene where Josh died back in 2016 when they had the hotel explosion – it was a different song in the Australian episode for some reason. I cried my eyes out over that scene and I can’t listen to this song now without thinking back to it.
Day 28: A song by an artist with a voice that you love
Wrapped Up – Olly Murs
Everyone loves Olly, right? And not just his voice, he’s pretty damn good looking, let’s be honest – and let’s not even mention his habit of wearing tight trousers! He may have lost out on winning X Factor but that’s not necessarily a bad thing because look at the success he’s had!
Day 29: A song that you remember from your childhood
Air Hostess – Busted
After how crazy last night was I had to use a Busted song for this one, but I was so torn between this and Year 3000, but I decided to go for the one that was most fun to sing along to last night, and it was Air Hostess. Although the reaction to “we’re gonna sing a song about the future” was pretty damn crazy!
Day 30: A song that reminds you of yourself
Say You Like Me – We The Kings
I’m kind of in two minds about using this song because I only know about this song because of my ex fwb… But if you listen to the first part of the first verse, the kind of girl they’re singing about is a girl like me, someone shy who won’t make the first move and is waiting for the right guy to come along.
So there we go, that’s my music challenge done! It’s actually been quite fun to do, but also quite hard at times to find songs I like that fit in to the categories I had. As promised here’s a link to the full playlist I’ve made for the challenge.
