  1. SPIRIT! I love that movie <3 <3

    Dear Evan Hansen is so good too. I don't listen to it often because it makes me cry but AH I LIKE IT.

    And This is Me. Just all the love for that song. <3 <3

    1. It's the best! <3

      That was the first musical that broke my heart.It makes me cry too!

      It's so good! <3

  2. Oh my gosh. I applaud you for coming up with answers to all of those! And such fun answers! I recognized a few songs. Like maybe two XD Dangit, now I gotta go listen to them.

    1. Thanks Maddie, it was a lot of question. He he, maybe you will find some new favorites!

  3. This was fun to read. NF IS EPIC!!! I can't wait to post my answers. XD

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! He is! I can't wait to read them. :D


    NF is amazing. <3

    1. SO MUCH! Glad I'm not the only one!

      He is, I'm so glad he is getting recognized. <3

  5. (can I just say congrats on making it through the whole challenge? You're a brave soul, dear Skye :) )


    1. XD Thanks!I'm more impressed with you for reading it!

  6. A music post! Hooray! I want to go listen to all of the songs now!!!!
    And thank you for posting some of the song links directly in the post. ;)
    I love that you like Dear Evan Hansen! It is one of my new favorites, and I sing Waving Through a Window all of the time. :)

    1. Yes, I want to do more of them. I hope you like them I have strange taste.
      I was going to post all of them, but it would have taken a long time. :D
      I do! I love that it deals with anxiety, which I have. Me too, it's my favorite one!

  7. This was so much fun! I really need to broaden my music taste. I LOVE music, but I listen to so very few bands. It's bad! I need to try some of these you listed!

    "By Your Side" is one of my comfort songs as well! Really most of Tenth Avenue North's songs give me peace. They have such beautiful lyrics.

    "All the songs from Zelda: Ocarina of Time" <----YESSSSSSH. To this day it's still one of my top favorite video game soundtracks on this earth.

    "Rainbow Veins" makes me so happy! I listen to it constantly. (Then again, I listen to ALL Owl City's songs constantly... #Obsessed)

    "The Loki of my childhood." <--I laughed so hard. XDDD

    "I'm not a fan, maybe 'Love is an open door' because that ended so well... XD" ALSO LAUGHING. Oh my word, Skye. You are a gem.

    I love that you mentioned the Veggie Tales songs. XD I mean, you can NEVER go wrong with Veggie Tales!

    "Go to sleep, Go to sleep
    Go to sleep little fiends" <---A+++ future parenting right there. XDDDD

    Oh my goodness, literally last week my friend introduced me to the "Waving Through a Window" song and now I'm OBSESSED. IT'S SO GOOD. I need to try the other Dear Evan Hansen songs. I also watched The Greatest Showman last week for the first time and EEEEEEEEEEP. IT WAS SO GOOD. I must get the soundtrack!

    This was a blast to read! Thank you for sharing all this with us! :D

    1. Oh good, I was hoping it wasn't to boring. Hey me too! I always listen to the same five bands, guilty. I hope you like them.

      It's so calming, I do love almost all of their songs. They are my favorite worship band, agreed!

      So glad you like Zelda, the soundtrack makes me so nostalgic. Mine too! I love all the harp bits.

      I love to paint while listening to it, right they are all so good! (Definitely a Hoot Owl)

      XD and my mom always tells me that I'm not funny.

      Veggie Tales was my childhood, you can't :)

      Others would disagree. XD

      It's the best song from the musical. Me too, I relate to it so much! Omigoodness, isn't it beautiful! I love everything about it. I need it too! I sing the songs all the time!

      I'm glad! Thanks for reading it! :D

  8. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay you did it!!!! I'm glad you found it to be funny XD XD

    I love Havana and New Rules too!

    "the Loki of my childhood" Yes!

    Yaaay You ship Reylo too!! Someone understands!!!

    "Go to sleep, Go to sleep
    Go to sleep little fiends" I can't stop laughing!!

    For the favorite book about a musician, I would totally recommend Open Road Summer by Emery Lord. It is one of my favorites books of all time. I think you would like it!

    NF is great! I just got into his music earlier this month and I absolutely love it.

    *blushes* awwwwwwwww thanks!!

    Oh my gosh! You skip "To Break In A Glove" too! I thought I was the only one. I just, don't like that song! "For Forever" is one of my favorites, as well as "Waving Through a Window"

    Loved your answers!!

    1. I did! It was incredibly funny! XD

      So catchy!

      :D Yup!

      They have such an interesting dynamic and so much chemistry.

      XD I should never have kids!

      Cool, I will have to check that out.

      He is! I'm so glad he is getting noticed.

      :) No problem!

      You too! I never liked it, I understand why it's there but I never listen to it. Those are some of the best ones!

      Awesome! Thanks for tagging me!

  9. Ahh this is so cool! I really love Kodaline! (Brother is the BEST song of theirs for me afajskdl.) And I haven't even seen the Greatest Showman but I love This Is Me too. 😍

    1. Thanks Cait! They are so good! I love Brother too! Gives me all the feels! You must! It's really good, all of the songs are amazing. That one is the best though! :D

  10. I have been listening to Taekwondo on repeat for the last few days...I love how it seems so random and crazy and yet...the lyrics are actually super cute? I mean, using the bad paddle in ping pong? #boyfriendgoals

    So happy with how this tag ended up! Every time someone does it I get so many amazing new songs to listen to! I even listened to Kodaline's song! I have bad memories...for one of my English writing classes, the teacher had us write a video evaluation paper...I had to watch "All I Want" over and over.

    I can still hear it in the darkest corner of the night...repeating...haunting my dreams...

    And I'm listening to Hold On and suddenly I'm so scared for Cynfael! WHAT ARE YOU PLANNING? NICE THINGS? DO NICE THINGS! MAYBE A FLUFFY KITTY? SOME NICE WINE? YES. DO THAT...

    1. It's such a fun song, my sister and I sing it at each other all the time. Most definitely! XD

      It's a fun tag, I love finding artists I normally wouldn't listen to. That sounds awful, I'm not a huge fan of 'All I Want' the 'Follow Your Fire' one is so catchy.

      It's like you have PTSD XD

      Scared is probably good. He is going to go through a lot in the sequel. There will be some nice things! Maybe I will get him a Kitty! He loves wine! Mix that in with some tears and blood, and your on the right track.

  11. By Your Side is such a lovely song! Have you heard Oh My Dear by Tenth Avenue North?

    The Kodaline one for Chayse and Snow. I can’t even say what it is, but something about it absolutely captivates me. It just does something to my heart. It’s beautiful!

    Okay, I don’t know what the context is for Hold On in reference to your story, but just knowing it’s about Cynfael and I am crying. Is this what makes him so complex and mysterious??? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!

    I had heard Hard Times before, but never watched the video. It’s such a strangely upbeat and colorful video for the lyrics, lol. But something about it still works.

    EVEN IF! Yes, girl, I relate. That song has helped me a lot too!

    The Cheeseburger song though.

    YUS! The Spirit score and soundtrack is INCREDIBLE!!!

    I read to the end! Haha, this is such a fun tag! And I love finding new music!


    1. It is! Yes, I really like that one too!

      I know, there is something almost magical about it. It always puts me in a good mood.

      It's going to be rough for him in the sequel. Your already having feels, excellent! I don't know maybe ;) TERRIBLE THINGS!

      It's one of my absolute favorites. Love the pastels and the all over vibe.

      Such a powerful song, helped me when I was depressed.


      I love it so much!

      Your definitely a real one! It is, me too!
