You May Also Like






      There's just SO MANY GOOD SONGS!!!!!!

      Thank you! <3

  2. *claps* Great answers! I knew every song you mentioned, you have impeccable taste!
    Yes to all the Fall Out Boy and Sam Tinnesz!

    1. That's so cool! Your taste is excellent too ;)

  3. Welcome back, Faith!

    Not being up on the Pop world, I haven't listened to many of these songs....

    Great tag!


    1. Thank you so much!!!!

      I'm not really into too much variation amongst my music, so I feel you on that....but they're all excellent songs ;)

      Thank you!!!!

  4. CENTURIES BY FALL OUT BOY, YES! That song is actually the theme song for my current WIP. ;)

    I love how many times you mentioned Skillet. It's nice to "know" someone else in the blogosphere who appreciates them too. <3

    THE GREATEST SHOWMAN AHHH I LOVE THAT MOVIE. I'm planning to do this challenge once I'm off hiatus, but idk how to choose just one favorite song from that soundtrack.

  5. Why do people complain about Praise You In This Storm?? O_O That song is so powerful and beautiful!

    LOVE THIS TAG!! I see a lot of songs and artists that I really like! Ruelle, Skillet, Sam Tinnesz, aaahhh! Also.. *adds more Fall Out Boy songs to my mental list of music to listen to* XD

  6. Wow, you and I like a lot of the same artists! I enjoy Immortals by FOB. And finally! Someone else who sings the Weekend Whip. XD

  7. Loved your answers! I honestly haven't listened to many of these artists, FOB and Taylor Swift being the exception.


  8. My word...this is likely the largest tag-thing I've ever seen. 65 questions! And I hear this is the abridged version?
    Ah, Les Mis! The seniors of our local home-school theatre group will be doing that one next year. I wish I could join them!
    I hope you get the chance to see Newsies some day. I saw it two years ago, and it was well worth it!
    Awesome to see all those Andrew Peterson songs getting some well deserved attention!

    1. Oh...and if you feel like doing another tag:

  9. ^^^^^ YESSSS TO EVERYTHING YOU SAID ABOUT PRAISE YOU IN THIS STORM. I absolutely love that song and can't fathom the idea that some people don't like it. *violently shames everyone who doesn't like that beautiful piece of mastery*

  10. *headdesk* I meant to post my above comment in response to Lila Kim's comment...

  11. Wow, that's quite the tag. I think my answers would be a little different than yours, but we have a lot of similar stuff too. Like the Ninjago theme song. Also, did you know you can watch Newsies on Netflix?

  12. Rewrite the Stars, Say Goodbye, Centuries, Ours, so many songs I recognize!!!

    Flight of the Silverbird is one of my favorite epic ones!!

    Same for Rise! It really makes you want to march on and DO SOMETHING!

    And yes, Praise You in the Storm and Tell Your Heart to Beat Again are really, really impactful! They're written for specific times, I think, and if you're not in that time, and you're focused on the "cheesiness" in Christian songs, it can be easy to miss the deep good that those songs are doing.

    Also, I'll have to check out THREE DAYS BEFORE AUTUMN by Andrew Peterson since we're supposed to fight you for it. ;)

    This is an awesome tag! I'm afraid I don't have the patience for 65 questions, but maybe I'll answer a couple during some of my Melodic Monday posts.



    And Call It What You Want To is one of my favorites...

  14. I might steal this tag, just because I love talking about music....but I mostly listen to bluegrass, so I'm not sure how many people would enjoy reading my answers....

    Didn't recognize many of the artists you mentioned, though I do listen to Andrew Peterson and Imagine Dragons now and then (plus the occasional Les Mis song...)

    HOWEVER I do sometimes blare Immortals. (The only Fall Out Boy song I know, lol)

  15. Imagine Dragons and Fall Out Boy are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE bands!! :D

    Oh my word, the Seagulls song...That song is sung around my house more often than I care to admit... XD

    That scene in Doctor Strange was honestly just the best. That whole MOVIE is just the best, in my opinion. XD

  16. I love music so much and I want to reply to every song that you mentioned, but then I might as well write a blog post myself.

    You have MOSTLY good music taste lol. Also we listen to 95% of the same music! So go you. XD

  17. I am a music lover!
