I’m, like, musically-minded or something

I like music, but I do not like tags… Usually.


Rebekah Elle recently posted this fine fine music tag cough 4K&C fangirls, where are you where you talk about your music and ask others too because we all like each other and music, right? 🙂  She nominated anyone who wanted to do it, and, since I’m 74.39% music, I thought I might as well.

Thankfully, I have tons (84 currently?) of playlists to help me out with categories, but there are some categories that just don’t fit (like, I don’t really listen to music from video games) and ones I want to add, so I’m making it my own. 🙂

Click on the category links for my Spotify playlists that probably fit or have the song(s) on them… there are too many songs to do YouTube links, sorry!

    1. Aw, thanks! Ooooh yay!! I can’t wait to see you guys!! I do have some great Jewish songs that I like to rock out to in the car, like Hashem Melech by Y-Studs, Ya’alili by 8th Day, Vehi Sheamda and Malchei Hamelachim by pretty much anyone, but the versions by Yozzi Azulay and Maccabeats, respectively, are awesome. 🙂


    1. The funny thing is, about a week after I posted this, I decided that I really needed new music… So now my music library looks really different and completely unorganized 😂😂😂. But, at the time, yes, it was quite sorted!
