The Playlist Shuffle Tag

I saw this tag recently on Beth’s blog ReadingEveryNight, and it looked like a lot of fun. I originally wasn’t so keen on doing this tag because I generally try to keep this blog focused on books and adaptations, but I thought this was a good chance to switch it up a bit. I’ve also been sick with a bad cold all weekend, so this one seemed nice and easy to do. All you need to do is put your playlist on shuffle, and post the first 10-15 songs that come up. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find the original version of this to credit the creator, so if anyone knows please tell me and I will link to them! I’m actually kind of curious to see what kind of songs will come up, since I have quite the variety on my list including many singers that I don’t think are very well-known. I have several Spotify playlists — my favourites, Youtube covers, Disney songs, R&B, and songs from musicals. I decided to go with my “favourites” list for this one since it has the most songs and the most variety. I’m sure with my luck it will be all the embarrassing songs that come up first! I’ve also seen versions of this game/tag where there are specific questions, and whichever song comes up first is the “answer,” but I thought this version would be the simplest one to start. Let’s see what comes up:

The Shoop Shoop Song by Cher 

Does he love me? I want to know
How can I tell if he loves me so?

A Million Miles Away by Rihanna

It feels like you’re a million miles away 
As your lying here with me tonight
I can’t even find the words to say
Say I can find a way to make it right

Mine by Beyonce and Drake

Stop making a big deal out of the little things
Cause I got big deals and I got little things
Got everything I’m asking for but you

Sick & Tired by Anastacia

I’m sick and tired of always being sick and tired
Your love isn’t fair 
You live in a world where you didn’t listen 
And you didn’t care 

Hall of Fame by The Script and Will.I.Am

Standing in the hall of fame
And the world’s gonna know your name
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world’s gonna know your name

Who Do U Love by Deborah Cox

If you really don’t want me 
If you really don’t need me 
If you really don’t love me 
Tell me who do you love? 

Don’t Tell Me by Avril Lavigne

Don’t try to tell me what to do
Don’t try to tell me what to say
You’re better off that way

Turn Da Lights Off by Tweet and Missy Elliott

You gotta put the needle back on the record (Turn da lights off)
Then lets get closer then closer then most (Turn da lights off)
I think we can get to know each other better if we (Turn da lights off)
And lets grab a glass and lets make a toast (Turn da lights off)

When We’re Apart by Vivian Green

And I never thought it would be so hard
(When we’re apart)
No, I never thought it could be so hard
But you ain’t even far

Someday One Day by Christina Milian

But I’ll tell you someday I’m gonna find
A guy that’s gonna change my life
And I tell you one day just wait and see
True love is waiting out there for me

I Can’t Read You by Daniel Bedingfield

I’m never shy but this is different
I can’t explain the way I’m feeling tonight
I’m losing control of my heart

Feel It by Jakalope

I can feel it
When I taste
Like the wind
I breathe
Crawling inside of me baby

Where Did the Beat Go? by Pink

Uh oh, does he know, that I’m lyin’ in the afterglow
That I’m lyin’ but I can’t go, can’t say no
Make him think he’s crazy
While his paranoia grows
What he should be asking
Is where did our love go
Then I wouldn’t be baskin’
In another man’s afterglow

Love Is Just a Game by Joe

Quit playing around like it’s a game
You tell me to go, you tell me to stay
Living with you is emotional
Roller coaster ride, like you’re Jekyll and Hyde

Stay by Rihanna and Mikky Ekko

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay


I’m really surprised that two Rihanna songs came up! I like her music, but I wouldn’t consider her someone that I listen to very often. I’m really glad to see the Pink song on the list since she is my all-time favourite, and I was hoping at least one of her songs would make the list, just given how many of them are on my playlist. As expected, I have quite a few songs listed here that I’m not sure people would be familiar with (Vivian Green, Joe, Deborah Cox, just to name a few), and I actually don’t think this list is very representative of my overall playlist. It might be interesting to revisit this tag at some point in the future and see if I can get a different mix.
