Music Habits Tag

Today, it’s very hard to find anyone who does not listen to music every single day. Or at least on a regular basis. It doesn’t matter what type of music. I believe that music brings people together, and it’s true! If you found someone with music tastes similar to yours, you’d more likely become good friends than not.

I did the Reading Habits Tag last month and on impulse, looked for a music habits tag but didn’t find one. And you know what they say—if what you want doesn’t exist, make it yourself. Whether that’s a film, a book or even a blog meme.

So here we are, with my first ever original tag!

A few tiny rules:

  • Tag the creator—that’s me! So I can read all your answers!
  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Answer all the questions.
  • Tag at least three friends.

Do you download songs or stream on apps like Spotify, Wink?

Both! I prefer downloading so I can listen offline but I also listen on Saavn when I’m trying out new albums.

What’s your current favourite song?

Call It What You Want by Taylor Swift! It’s such a subtle feel-good song.

Last song you listened to?

My playlist is on shuffle as I type this. The song playing now is You Got Me by Colbie Calliat. This, also, a really nice feel-good song. I found it from the movie Letters to Juliet.

Who are your all-time favourite artists?

  1. Night Terrors of 1927
  2. Kodaline
  3. Sia
  4. Ed Sheeran
  5. Sleeping At Last
  6. Lorde

Have you been to any concerts?

Nope, sadly. There aren’t many concerts held in the city I live and the rare they are, the tickets are really expensive.

Do you play any instruments?

I wish I did! I really wanted to learn the piano when I was younger but there weren’t any teachers around and I was too anti-social to go out and attend far away.

Do you play your songs on shuffle or choose a playlist?

I tend to shuffle pretty much all the time. I only have one playlist and that’s for when I’m travelling in the college bus. Those songs are perfect to sleep to and I fall asleep for that one hour journey.

Name one song that you always skip when it comes up on shuffle.

Surefire by John Legend. I like the song but I’m just NEVER in the mood for it.

Do you prefer playing songs on speaker or listening in ear/headphones?

The only time I play music on speaker is when I’m home alone. My parents don’t really like English songs, plus they have curse words so I’m conscious.

Is there any popularly liked song that you don’t like?

I’m not sure if this is really liked much, but it is popular. Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift. I just did not like it. I did not understand the hype, other than the obvious change in her music.

Where do you usually find new music? Example through shuffle online, recommendations.

Usually I find new music on YouTube. I choose one song I like and keep the autoplay on. At some point new songs play and that’s how I find new music.

I don’t tend to like finding new music through recommendations. I just prefer it to come up on shuffle, playing amongst songs I like. Sometimes when my friends really push me on some songs, I download them and wait for it to come up on shuffle. It might take months but it’s a good method for me.

Do you like songs based on tunes/beats or lyrics?

I tend to not see lyrics almost at all. I like songs based on the tunes and beats. I learn to like the lyrics later on.

The funny thing is that even though I don’t care about the lyrics, after listening to the songs a few times, I automatically memorize the lyrics. The point when I can sing along for most of the song is when I know I need to find new music. And I can sing along to a LOT of songs.

There was this one time when a friend was treating us at a restaurant for his birthday. I was singing along to every song that came on the overhead speakers and after a while all that friend did was look to me when a new song starts to see if I’m mouthing along. But to be honest, it wasn’t much of a challenge because ALL the songs were the really popular ones.

Name one song that you think everyone should listen to.

I could choose a few but choosing one is a little hard..

I’ll go with Saturn by Sleeping At Last. I LOVE this song. It makes me emotional every time.

I tag..

What’s your current favourite song? If you blog, do you listen to music while blogging? Are you addicted to your ear/headphones like I am? I’ve actually made a resolution to stop using them so much. Let’s how that goes. What type of songs do you usually gravitate to? Let me know everything in the comments!

  1. I was just thinking about how cool this tag was and then you tagged me! Yay 😀

    Ed Sheeran is slowly becoming one of my favorite artists, too. My mom is obsessed with his music and won’t stop listening to him. It’s hard not to enjoy him, then? 😛

    Currently, my favorite song is Finesse by Bruno Mars but the Cardi B remix. It’s so catchy and puts me in a great mood. I sometimes listen to music when I blog depending on how much I want to concentrate. For sure addicted to my headphones since I’m addicted to both music and watching Youtube videos 😛

    1. Yay! Good thing I tagged you then 😌

      Ed Sheeran is love! All of his songs are so beautiful and I can’t not love them at any point of time.

      I don’t usually listen to Bruno Mars? I know that he’s popularly liked but I’ve just never been introduced to his songs properly 🤷

      Haha same! I’ve stopped watching YouTube much recently (trying to curb it) but I’m still listening to music a lot 😌


      1. Agreed. You’re making me want to listen to him now, it’s like he keeps getting better and better with each album.

        Oooh you should check him out. Some of my favorite songs are Just the Way You Are, Marry You, When I Was Your Man and Versace on the Floor. Like Ed, he gets better with each album.

        Haha same but I just can’t kick the habit yet!

  5. […] And just like book talk dominates this blog, book tags dominate the blogging world. You’re more likely to find really good book tags than tags for other niches. Most of the tags I’ve done are about books. This sad imbalance is the reason I decided to pitch in for the other side with my Music Habits Tag. […]
