The Lyric Medley Tag

Ok, so WAYY BACK IN JANUARY, Heather from Sometimes I'm a Story tagged me for this, and somehow, SOMEHOW, I forgot about it. In fact, I never would have remembered it at all, if I hadn't been searching through old posts for something or other.

SO! Both my thanks and apologies to you, Heather! I'll do this right now, because it looks fun! :D

The Rules:

Thank and link back to the person who tagged you.
Make a collage that represents your taste in music to go along with your tag post.
List a song for each of the 10 questions below (or make up your own!) and include your favorite lyrics from that song, if you'd like. If you want to explain why you chose that song, that's cool too - go crazy with it!
Tag at least 5 bloggers

Well, I don't know how to make a collage, so we'll forgo that. But I'm gonna tell you right now: Owl City is my favorite artist; you'll probably see a lot of him in here. X)



~a song I can relate to~
Put Your Hearts Up
Ariana Grande
pop
You think you're so small, like you're itty bitty,
Just one match in the lights of the city.
Walking by strangers on the side of the street
Like a quarter in a cup will get 'em up on their feet.
You think you're never gonna make your mark,
Sit back and watch the world while it falls apart.
Outta sight, outta mind,
Like it's just a waste of time.

~a song from my favorite album~
Honey and the Bee
Owl City - All Things Bright and Beautiful
electronica/pop
Don't remind me,
I'm a chickadee in love with the sky.
But that's clearly not a lot to crow about.
'Cause when the stars silhouette me,
I'm scared they'll forget me,
And flicker out.

~a song that makes me happy~
Strawberry Avalanche
Owl City
electronica/pop
If you were a beautiful sound
In the echoes all around,
Then I'd be your harmony,
And we'd sing along with the crowds
Beneath the candy-coated clouds,
Oh strawberry avalanche, crash over me.

~a song that makes me feel calm/sleepy~
Bubbly
Colbie Caillat
pop/folk/acoustic
The rain is falling on my windowpane,
But we are hiding in a safer place.
Under covers, staying safe and warm,
You give me feelings that I adore.

~a song that makes me feel rebellious~
Bad
David Guetta
pop/hip hop/electronic
Why does it feel so good,
So good to be bad?
Getting what I want, boy,
Why does that make you so mad?

~a song that makes me feel sad~
Silhouette
Owl City
electronica/pop
The fire I began 
Is burning me alive, 
But I know better than 
To leave and let it die.
I'm a silhouette, 
Asking every now and then,
Is it over yet?
Will I ever feel again?

~a song that makes me wistful~
Danny Boy
Celtic Women
folk
But come ye back
When summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed
And white with snow.
For I'll be here,
In sunshine or in shadow.
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy,
I love you so.

~a song of hope~
You're Not Alone
Owl City
electronica/pop
You rescued me,
And I believe
That God is love
And He is all I need
From this day forth,
For all eternity.
I'll never wander on my own,
For I am Yours
Until You call me home.

~a song people wouldn't think I'd like but I do~
Monster
Skillet
rock
It's hiding in the dark,
It's teeth are razor sharp,
There's no escape for me,
It wants my soul, it wants my heart.
No one can hear me scream.
Maybe it's just a dream.
Maybe it's inside of me.
Stop this monster!

~the last song I listened to~
Home of the Blues
Owl City
electronica/pop
Oh, but the place is filled
With the sweetest memories,
Memories so sweet that I cry.
Dreams that I've had
Left me feelin' so bad,
I just wanna give up, and lay down, and die.

  1. Love those songs!I did this tag a while ago and I loved it!

    I did this once before but since I'm needing some fun tags and stuff to make up for my absense this month on my blog I'm totally stealing it. :P

    1. It was so fun! :D

      Go for it! Tagging people is so hard: I prefer it when people just take the tags they want to do. X)

  2. I love so many of those songs (and by that I mean I love all of the Owl City songs because Adam Young is amazing the end). I'm glad you decided to do the tag (better late than never, eh?) and I'm pleased to see that Skillet made the list because yay Skillet.

  3. What an excellent tag! Danny Boy gave me goosebumps just from reading the lyrics. And I loved those Owl City lyrics from Silhouette - beautiful. I should listen to some Owl City. The only song I know is Fireflies.

      Thanks! Do you think you'll do this tag? Or have you done it before?

    2. I haven't done this tag, or even seen it before, no. I probably won't be doing it. I suddenly have an explosion of tags waiting for me and I'm not even sure I'll be able to get to all of them (I'm so bad when it comes to being tagged. Such a bad blogger!). But it's so cool and is awfully tempting... You never know. XD

  5. I love Owl City, but clearly I'm missing a few albums in my itunes library because I don't recognize some of those songs!

    *Scurries off to Youtube to look them up*

    Fun post!

    1. LOL One time I just went on youtube and opened every Owl City song I saw in a new tab (so I wouldn't forget any), listened to them all (one at a time lol), and got the ones I liked. :)
