A deeper dive into my music taste

Hello friends of the Internet!

It’s been a while since I have written a post about music (apart from my Monthly Music feature) so when the wonderful Liz tagged me in the 18 Songs Tag, I was thrilled at the prospect to have something music-related I could write about. I am very selective when it comes to award posts and tags but I genuinely enjoy the in-depth view this particular tag gives you into my personal taste in music. So let’s get started, shall we?*

Instead of tagging individuals, I would like to ask all of you: Were there any songs in particular you instantly thought of when reading some of these 18 questions? What songs do you think transmit the feeling of my blog? Please do let me know, I always love discovering new tracks!

P.s.: If anyone would also like to participate in the 18 Songs Tag, consider yourself tagged (and let me know if you did a post on it)!

  1. As you said, we were both in mood for music posts!
    I haven’t heard so many of the songs listed here, better start now :/

            1. I partly agree with you on that. In a way I think music has lost some of its “innocence” if that makes any sense. But then again, I have discovered some amazing artists and bands from this century that I would deem as good as some of the greats. I think when it comes to it, it’s all about trends. And with the current music trends not really being on my preferred side of the musical spectrum, I really have to dig in order to find songs where I get that “feeling” you know, songs that DO carry meaning.
