    THIRTY SONG CHALLENGE REVIVAL
    #1
    So this was a thing in 2013 and the thread is apparently LOST TO THE FLOW OF TIME. Lynn came up with the idea credit her.

    So the idea is that you take the first 30 songs that pop up when you shuffle your most listened to on itunes/songs on spotify/whatever, and then you try to title a thread after them, using a couple lines as inspo.

     Here's one Bee and I did way back when. They're super fun!

    The 2013 thread def explained this better but IT'S FUN AND 2 AM ROLL WITH ME

    Here are my 30 songs! Used my iPad since this is Jeremys work laptop so I'm avoiding adding spotify. <3 I included lyrics that I thought /hmm, I think I could form a thread reflecting that to some degree/ about. Some of them, I immediately had thoughts for and included those lol.

    Hard Knock Life - Annie Soundtrack
    Secrets - One Republic
    I need another story
    Something to get off my chest
    My life gets kinda boring
    Need something that I can confess
    I Don't Want to Miss A Thing - Aerosmith
    I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
    I could stay lost in this moment forever

    Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure
    Don't want to close my eyes
    I don't want to fall asleep
    'Cause I'd miss you baby
    And I don't want to miss a thing
    'Cause even when I dream of you
    The sweetest dream will never do
    I'd still miss you baby
    And I don't want to miss a thing
    Closing Time - Semisonic
    Closing time
    One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or beer.
    Closing time
    You don't have to go home but you can't stay here.
    Powerless - Linkin Park
    I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
    I'm left with emptiness that words can not defend
    You'll never know what I became because of you
    Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose
    Carousel - Blink 182
    I talk to you every now and then
    I never felt so alone again
    I stop to think at a wishing well
    My thoughts send me on a carousel
    Cherry Bomb - The Runaways
    Can't stay at home, can't stay at school
    Old folks say, ya poor little fool
    Down the street I'm the girl next door
    I'm the fox you've been waiting for
    Better Off Alone - Alice Deejay
    Do you think you're better off alone?
    Strangers Like Me - Phil Collins
    I want to know, can you show me
    I want to know about the strangers like me
    Tell me more, please show me
    Something's familiar
    About the strangers like me
    Feeling This - Blink 182
    I love all the things you do (I'm feeling this)

    Fate fell short this time
    Your smile fades in the summer
    Place your hand in mine
    I'll leave when I wanna
    I Didn't Know I'd Love You So Much - Repo! The Genetic Opera Soundtrack
    I didn't know I'd love you so much,
    But I do...
    Goin' Down - Three Days Grace
    I feel like I'm dying
    I've got one foot in the ground
    Never knew what love was
    Until you came around

    I feel like I'm flying
    I've got my head in the clouds
    Never thought I was crazy
    Until you came around
    Just Around The Riverbend - Judy Kuhn
    I look once more just around the river bend
    Beyond the shore where the gulls fly free
    Don't know what for what I dream the day might send
    Just around the river bend for me, coming for me
    Vertigo - U2
    Lights go down, it's dark
    The jungle is your head, can't rule your heart
    A feeling's so much stronger than a thought
    Your eyes are wide and though your soul, it can't be bought
    Your mind can wander
    Let It Go - Idina Menzel (Lily gets a job thread)
    It's funny how some distance
    Makes everything seem small
    And the fears that once controlled me
    Can't get to me at all

    It's time to see what I can do
    To test the limits and break through
    No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
    I'm free!
    Dynamite - Taio Cruz
    I'm gonna take it all I,
    I'm gonna be the last one standing,
    Higher overall I,
    I'm gonna be the last one landing 'cause I, I, I
    Believe it, and I, I, I
    I just want it all, I just want it all,
    I'm gonna put my hands in the air, hands in the air
    Put your hands in the air
    Mine - Taylor Swift
    Do you remember, we were sittin', there by the water?
    You put your arm around me for the first time
    You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
    You are the best thing, that's ever been mine
    Mr. Sandman - The Four Aces
    Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
    Make her complexion like peaches and cream
    Give her two lips like roses and clover
    Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over

    Sandman, I'm so alone
    Don't have nobody to call my own
    Please turn on your magic beam
    Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

    Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
    Make her the cutest that I've ever seen
    Give her the word that I'm not a rover
    Then tell her that my lonesome nights are over
    When The Day Met The Night - Panic! At The Disco
    When the moon fell in love with the sun
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    I'll Tell Me Ma - The Clan
    Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
    And the snow come travelin' through the sky
    She's as sweet as apple pie
    She'll get her own right by and by
    Ten Minutes Ago - Rodgers & Hammersteins Cinderella Soundtrack
    Ten minutes ago I saw you
    I looked up when you came through the door.
    My head started reeling,
    You gave me the feeling
    The room had no ceiling or floor.

    Ten minutes ago I met you
    And we murmured our how-do-you-do's.
    I wanted to ring out the bells
    And fling out my arms
    And to sing out the news.
    Firework - Katy Perry
    My Immortal - Evanescence
    These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
    There's just too much that time cannot erase
    Sugar, Sugar - The Archies
    Honey, ah sugar sugar
    You are my candy girl
    And you've got me wanting you

    I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you
    (I just can't believe it's true)
    I just can't believe the one to love this feeling to
    (I just can't believe it's true)
    Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes
    My heart's a stereo
    It beats for you, so listen close
    Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
    Make me your radio
    And turn me up when you feel low
    This melody was meant for you
    Just sing along to my stereo
    Take A Chance on Me - Mamma Mia Soundtrack
    If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
    Honey I'm still free
    Take a chance on me
    If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
    If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
    If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
    Honey I'm still free
    Take a chance on me
    Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
    If you put me to the test, if you let me try
    Take A Minute - K'Naan
    And any man who knows a thing knows, he knows not a damn, damn thing at all
    And every time I felt the hurt and I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall
    I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
    I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
    I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
    I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
    Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson - Excalibur shenanigans with Howell
    Saturday night and we in the spot
    Don't believe me just watch
    Let Me Love You - Mario - ( @Emmeline Woodcroft, Benjamin+Glory if they get there ;D It gives me feels for them lol)
    You should let me love you
    Let me be the one to give you everything you want and need

    Make me your selection
    Show you the way love's supposed to be
    Baby you should let me love you, love you, love you
    Do You Hear The People Sing? - Les Misérables Soundtrack (this should be an Esteban & revs thread)
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the beating of the drums
    There is a life about to start
    When tomorrow comes

    I will come back and put songs here but quickly:

    I thought about reviving this like literally last week and talked myself out of it but I love you for doing it

    Beanie, your song list is excellent and we were clearly always destined to be friends because you have excellent taste in music. XD Not that everyone else doesn't have great songs too but I was looking at your list like "Yes... YES... OMG YES."

    Edit: Emma, if you tag Ben in Uptown Funk I'll be there like white on rice ;D

    I just reread a Tybsie thread with lyrics in it and thought about this! That's so funny!

    Yes to Ruce!

    Be back with songs when in on my computer!



    Nobody judge my horrid taste in music; I like my pop and country music tyvm. Pulled lyrics that spoke to me, will revisit the rest :} My shuffle also picks some raaaandom songs I haven't listened to in aaaaages, it was a fun trip down memory lane!

    01 | Craving You - Thomas Rhett ft. Maren Morris
    Every time we have to say good-bye
    I'm counting down until we say hello

    02 | Hallelujah - Pentatonix (it's the version I love)
    Well, maybe there's a God above
    But all I've ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
    And it's not a cry that you hear at night
    It's not somebody who's seen the light
    It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

    03 | God, Your Mamma and Me - Florida Georgia Line f. the Backstreet boys
    my love is never gonna run dry
    never gonna come up empty
    now until the day I die
    unconditionally

    04 | From the Ground Up - Dan + Shay
    -- this song is on Rue's sig, but not super fitting to her state of mind right now XD

    05 | Live Forever - The Band Perry - this gives me Jessianee feels, @Imogen MacFusty
    I was dreaming because it made me feel so alive
    was dreaming it all from my bed last night
    you will be my only one
    hold my hand so we can run
    you and I we're staying young

    06 | The Words - Christina Perri

    07 | Blank Space - Taylor Swift

    08 | Letters - Enter the Haggis - this is a true story of a man who was trapped in his car in the desert and wrote letters to his wife while he was trapped! He was rescued and ended up giving the letters to his wife in person <3
    your love is a compass rose
    steadfast through the sand and stone
    wind carry these letters home to Joan

    old memories come to life
    a last dance in this amber light
    wind carry these letters home tonight

    09 | How Far I'll Go - Alessia Cara (Moana OST)
    -- ayy we match @Tilda MacFusty we should figure something out! Seb/Elsie? Tilda/Gemma?

    10 | Waiting on Superman - Daughtry - something for @Nathalie Jennings it's a summary of her sad love life XD
    She's talking to angels, counting the stars
    Making a wish on a passing car
    She's dancing with strangers, falling apart
    Waiting for Superman to pick her up
    In his arms, Yeah, in his arms, Yeah, waiting for Superman

    11 | Hotel California - The Eagles
    Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice
    And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
    And in the master's chambers, they gathered for the feast
    They stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast
    Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
    I had to find the passage back to the place I was before

    12 | The Litter and the Leaves - Enter the Haggis
    on we're feet is where were going to land
    you can me in the gutter
    the gutter is the place where we will make our stand
    and with a smile on my face and a bottle in my hand
    you will find me in the gutter in the morning

    13 | Nothin' Like You - Dan + Shay #tybsie4lyfe @Tybalt Kirke
    I remember when I first met you
    sipping coffee in a corner booth
    you were twirling your hair
    and I just had to stare for a minute
    I was laughing at your stack of books
    then you shot me that smile

    14 | Centuries - Fallout Boy

    15 | Drops of Jupiter - Train

    16 | These Words - Natasha Beddingfield

    17 | The Call - Regina Spektor - this is on Eavan's sig, maybe some Flan?? @Fletcher Peverell
    It started out as a feeling
    Which then grew into a hope
    Which then turned into a quiet thought
    Which then turned into a quiet word

    And then that word grew louder and louder
    'Til it was a battle cry
    I'll come back
    When you call me
    No need to say goodbye

    18 | Let Her Go - Passenger
    Well you only need the light when it's burning low
    Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
    Only know you love her when you let her go

    Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
    Only hate the road when you're missing home
    Only know you love her when you let her go, and you let her go

    19 | This Everyday Love - Rascal Flatts
    -- I need one of my happy, cutesy marriages XD @Philip Calendar, Adelip revival?

    20 | State of Grace - T. Swift

    21 | A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton
    If I could fall into the sky
    Do you think time would pass me by?
    'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
    If I could just see you tonight

    22 | Stay the Night - Zedd ft. Hayley Williams

    23 | Everybody - The Scene Aesthetic
    -- I blame MJ for this, it was on my Tybsie mix of love XD

    24 | Rewind - Rascal Flatts
    -- this is a Thamper sonnnggg @Leander Grantham

    25 | Honey, I'm Good - Andy Grammar

    26 | Yeah Boy - Kelsea Ballerini

    27 | T-Shirt | Thomas Rhett
    -- this always gives me modernAU!Gemma feels lol

    28 | Beauty and the Beast - Beauty and the Beast OST

    29 | Compass - Lady Antebellum

    30 | Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt
    -- this song is so suggestively awesome would make a p. good M thread XD

    I return with songs, lyrics, and in some cases even ideas~

    /in no particular order:

    Also Ophelia by The Lumineers should have been on my list (who's suprised? No one) buuuut I don't think I can handle that besides the lyrics are basically just lots of 'Ophelia' and lbr that's the theme of every thread she's in

    Editing in links and removing lyrics as I use them!
    If a song still has lyrics up, I haven't decided how to use them yet and am welcome suggestions!

    OKAY SO I'M DOING THE THING! Gyah. PM me if any of the lyrics grab you? Some might be replaced at a later date because of inappropriate to settingness.

    EDIT: I pulled exactly 3 songs due to lack of individual ideas and a number of workability issues, don't shoot me.

    1. When Doves Cry - Prince (Sorcha)
    How can you just leave me standing?
    Alone in a world that's so cold? (So cold)
    Maybe I'm just too demanding
    Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
    Maybe you're just like my mother
    She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
    Why do we scream at each other
    This is what it sounds like
    When doves cry
    2. Soap - Melanie Martinez (Constance Huntingtower)
    Think I got myself in trouble
    So I fill the bath with bubbles
    Then I'll put the towels all away
    Should've never said the word "love"
    Threw a toaster in the bathtub
    I'm sick of all the games I have to play
    3. Corner - Blue Stahli (Killian Tabiner)
    'Cause I am the one inside you
    And I am the one
    (Inside your veins)
    'Cause I am the one inside you
    Over and over I'm here again

    Far beyond the bruising
    Something underneath
    Feel me in the aftermath when
    You learn the world has teeth
    4. Titanium - David Guetta feat. Sia  (Banshee Simmons)
    I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
    Fire away, fire away
    Ricochet, you take your aim
    Fire away, fire away
    You shoot me down but I won't fall
    I am titanium
    5. Nothing Compares 2 U - Prince (Maiken Thyradatter)
    It's been seven hours and thirteen days
    Since you took your love away
    I go out all night and sleep all day
    Since you took your love away
    6. Alphabet Boy - Melanie Martinez (undecided)
    I'm not a little kid now
    Watch me get big now
    Spell my name on the fridge now
    With all your alphabet toys
    You won the spelling bee now,
    But are you smarter than me now?
    You're the prince of the playground,
    Little alphabet boy
    7. Erotic City - Prince (Buttercup Davenport)
    Every time I comb my hair
    Thoughts of you get in my eyes

    Thoughts of pretty you and me, Erotic City come alive
    8. Little Red Corvette - Prince (Phaedra)
    See, you're the kinda person that believes in makin' out once
    Love 'em and leave 'em fast

    But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
    And you say, "What have I got to lose?"
    9. I Won't Say (I'm In Love) - Susan Egan, The Muses (Sinéad O'Luain)
    It's too cliché, I won't say I'm in love

    Girl don't be proud, it's okay you're in love
    10. Outrageous - Britney Spears (Phaedra)
    I'm about to bring the heat
    Lockin' down the industry
    All dressed up and glamorous
    11. When Will My Life Begin? - Mandy Moore (Joanna Triggs)
    I'll reread the books if I have time to spare
    I'll paint the walls some more, I'm sure there's room somewhere.
    And then I'll brush and brush, and brush and brush my hair
    Stuck in the same place I've always been.
    12. Pity Party - Melanie Martinez (Constance Huntingtower)
    Maybe it's a cruel joke on me
    Whatever, whatever
    Just means there's way more cake for me
    Forever, forever

    I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
    I'll cry until my pity party's in flames
    13. Roar - Katy Perry (Moriko Shimizu)
    I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
    'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
    14. Rotten to the Core - Disney's Descendants (Sybille Lukeson)
    Mirror, mirror, on the wall
    Who's the baddest of them all?
    Welcome to my wicked world
    15. Teddy Bear - Melanie Martinez (Sybille Lukeson)
    Teddy bear, you were my teddy bear
    You were comforting and quiet
    How did love become so violent?
    16. Bad Romance - Lady Gaga (Dove Drummond) ~ IN PROGRESS
    17. Raspberry Beret - Prince (Ambrosia Shinnick)
    The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
    And the horses wonder who U are
    Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
    18. Just Dance - Lady Gaga, Colby O'Donis (Maiken Thyradatter)
    I've had a little bit too much, much
    All of the people start to rush.
    Start to rush by.

    What's going on, on the floor?
    I love this record, baby, but I can't see straight anymore.
    19. Fireflies - Owl City (Buttercup Davenport)
    Leave my door open just a crack
    'Cause I feel like such an insomniac
    Why do I tire of counting sheep?
    When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
    20. Goodies - Ciara, Petey Pablo (Banshee Simmons)
    You may look at me and think that I'm
    Just a young girl
    But I'm not just a young girl.
    Baby this is what I'm lookin' for:
    Sexy, independent,
    Down to spend it type that's gettin' his dough
    I'm not being too dramatic that's the way I gotta have it.
    21. Let's Go Crazy - Prince (Ambrosia Shinnick) ~ IN PROGRESS
    22. Cake - Melanie Martinez (Shadow Darrington)
    Your skin is warm like an oven
    Your kiss is sugary sweet
    Your fingers feel like cotton
    When you put your arms around me
    I feel like I'm just missing
    Something whenever you leave
    We've got all the ingredients
    Except you loving me
    23. I Wanna Be Your Lover - Prince (Dove Drummond)
    I ain't got no money
    I ain't like those other guys you hang around
    And it's kinda funny
    But they always seem to let you down
    24. I See The Light - Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi (Socellia Morzolla)
    All those days watching from the windows
    All those years outside looking in
    All that time never even knowing
    Just how blind I've been
    Now I'm here blinking in the starlight
    Now I'm here suddenly I see
    Standing here it's all so clear
    I'm where I'm meant to be
    25. Lucky - Britney Spears (Joanna Triggs)
    And they say
    She's so lucky, she's a star
    But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
    If there's nothing missing in my life
    Then why do these tears come at night
    26. S.O.S. (Anything But Love) - Apocalyptica feat. Christina Scabbia (Shadow Darrington) ~ IN PROGRESS
    27. Angels - Within Temptation (Ellie Coulston)
    I see the angels
    I'll lead them to your door
    There's no escape now
    No mercy no more
    No remorse 'cause I still remember
    The smile when you tore me apart
    28. Jillian - Within Temptation (Sinéad O'Luain)
    I'd give my heart, I'd give my soul.
    I'd turn it back, it's my fault.
    Your destiny is forlorn,
    Have to live till it's undone.
    29. Faster - Within Temptation (Socellia Morzolla) ~ IN PROGRESS
    30. Paradise (What About Us?) - Within Temptation feat. Tarja Turunen (Willow Middlemiss) ~ IN PROGRESS

    if I could marry Bee I would but I can't so I ship our characters instead.
    #14
    Welp, I have no clue how I'm going to use most of these, but here we go! xD

    1.) Carry You Home - Ward Thomas
    When it all comes caving in
    And you can't be brave again
    Whenever you need a friend
    I'll be there

    'Cause I'll be there to carry you home
    When you're on your own, so scared
    And I'll be there when it all goes wrong
    Just to show you someone cares

    2.) That Would Be Enough - Phillipa Soo, Lin-Manuel Miranda (Garelia)
    3.) Shatter Me - Lindsey Stirling ft. Lzzy Hale
    If I break the glass, then I'll have to fly
    There's no one to catch me if I take a dive
    I'm scared of changing, the days stay the same
    The world is spinning but only in gray
    4.) Million Questions - Urban Contract
    If I could ask a million questions
    That would leave me wanting more
    That's why I let you do the talking
    Baby, that's what talking's for
    5.) Wait For It - Leslie Odom Jr.
    Love/death/life doesn't discriminate
    Between the sinners and the saints
    It takes and it takes and it takes
    And we keep living anyway
    We rise and we fall and we break
    And we make our mistakes
    6.) Truth Is A Beautiful Thing - London Grammar
    To hold your heart, to hold your hand
    Would be to me, the greatest thing

    Could you take my place and stand here?
    I do not think you would take this pain
    You'd be on your knees and struggle under the weight
    Oh, the truth would be a beautiful thing
    Oh, the truth is a beautiful thing

    7.) Sugar, You - Oh Honey
    You are something beautiful
    Floating through my mind like you do
    You are something wonderful
    Wish you could see you like I do
    You're aleady everything I want
    Can't you see you're everything I'm not
    8.) It's Quiet Uptown - Kelly Clarkson
    There are moments that the words don't reach
    There is suffering too terrible to name/There's grace too powerful to name
    We push away what we can never understand
    We push away the unimaginable
    9.) Guilty Flowers - Ward Thomas
    Fool me once, fool me twice
    Oh, stupid me

    Didn't want to doubt
    Didn't want to find out

    Who was I thinkin' that
    I could be someone different?

    10.) Holding On To You - Twenty One Pilots
    Fight it, take the pain, ignite it
    Tie a noose around your mind
    Loose enough to breathe fine and tie it
    To a tree tell it, you belong to me, this ain't a noose
    This is a leash and I have news for you
    You must obey me
    11.) Feeling Good - Nina Simone
    It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me
    And I'm feelin' good
    12.) Seventeen - Alessia Cara
    My daddy said that life comes at you fast
    We all like blades of grass
    We come to prime and in time we just wither away
    And it changes
    My view with a looking glass won't catch the past
    Only photographs remind us of the passing of days
    13.) Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
    Strangers waiting
    Up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching
    In the night
    Streetlight people
    Livin' just to find emotion
    Hidin' somewhere in the night

    Don't stop believin'
    Hold on to that feelin'

    14.) Satisfied - Renee Elise Goldsberry
    I remember that dreamlike candlelight
    Like a dream that you can't quite place
    But Alexander, I'll never forget the first time I saw your face
    I have never been the same
    Intelligent eyes in a hunger-pang frame
    And when you said "hi" I forgot my dang name
    Set my heart aflame, ev'ry part aflame
    This is not a game
    15.) Younger - French Wives
    When I lay my head
    When I find my home
    When I'm in the arms of those I know
    When all is said
    When all is done
    You did your best
    You gave it all

    I could quote this entire song. It's one of my favorites. xD

    16.) Blended Family (What You Do For Love) - Alicia Keys ft. (A$AP Rocky)
    I think you're beautiful
    I think you're perfect
    I know how hard it gets
    But I swear it's worth it, worth it

    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love
    'Cause there ain't nothing, there ain't nothing
    There ain't nothing I would do for us
    It may not be easy
    This blended family, but baby
    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love

    17.) Meteorites - LIGHTS
    The greatest sights I've ever seen
    And maybe we sound young and naive
    And maybe we just want to believe

    We are gonna see greater heights
    They'll put our names up in neon lights
    Rolling volcanoes in the night
    Glowing in the dark like meteorites
    We're volcanoes in the night
    We're rolling like meteorites

    18.) Read All About It, Pt. III - Emeli Sandé
    You've got the words to change a nation
    But you're biting your tongue
    You've spent a lifetime stuck in silence
    Afraid that you'll say something wrong
    If no one ever hears it, how we gonna learn your song?

    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream 'til the words dry out
    So put it in all of the papers,
    I'm not afraid
    They can read all about it

    Another one of my favorites that I could literally quote the whole thing.

    19.) Incredible - Céline Dion (ft. Ne-Yo)
    Whole world is watching us now
    It's a little intimidating
    But since there's no way to calm down
    Let's give them something amazing

    Let's make them remember
    Using one word...
    Incredible

    20.) Best of You - Anastacia
    I needed somewhere to hang my head
    Without your noose
    You gave me something that I didn't have
    But had no use
    I was too weak to give in
    To strong to lose
    My heart is under arrest again
    But I break loose
    My head is giving me life or death
    But I can't choose
    I swear I'll never give in
    I refuse
    21.) Bros - Wolf Alice
    Shake your hair, have some fun
    Forget our mothers and past lovers, forget everyone
    Oh, I'm so lucky, you are my best friend
    Oh, there's no one, there's no one who knows me like you do

    Are your lights on?
    Are your lights still on?
    I'll keep you safe,
    You keep me strong

    22.) My Sacrifice - Boyce Avenue (cover)
    We've seen our share of ups and downs
    Oh, how quickly life can turn around
    In an instant
    Feels so good to reunite
    Within yourself and within your mind
    Let's find peace there
    23.) Homeland - Chord Overstreet
    When I'm all used up
    And I'm old and grey
    When the well runs dry
    And my mind just ain't the same
    Won't you set me free
    24.) Express Myself - Ricky Reed
    Lookin' in the mirror and I touch my face
    Man, I'm way too young to look like that
    Pressure's all around me to live this way
    But I can't go back to the life I had

    I don't wanna wait to express myself

    25.) Coulda Woulda Shoulda - Céline Dion
    But don't you miss out on the way
    Don't find a reason to say

    Coulda woulda shoulda
    But I didn't do that
    (You gotta) Give it a shot
    Better believe
    And don't say you

    Coulda woulda shoulda
    (But I didn't do that)
    Just throw in everything you've got
    'Cause in love there's no holding back

    26.) Landslide - Madilyn Bailey (cover)
    Oh, mirror in the sky
    What is love?
    Can the child within my heart rise above?
    Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides?
    Can I handle the seasons of my life?

    Well, I've been afraid of changing
    'Cause I've built my life around you
    But time makes you bolder
    Even children get older
    And I'm getting older, too

    27.) Ready - Kodaline
    Look me in the eye when I'm talking to you
    It's easy to get nervous, I've been feeling it too
    Yeah, it's kind of crazy
    Yeah, it's kind of dumb
    Never let the pressure overpower the fun
    28.) Repeat - Allan Rayman (ft. Jessie Reyez)
    Libraries of all these memories I never touch
    I only look back to see where I don't want to go
    I can barely sleep, but I see it all in my dreams
    Goes as far as I can see
    But believe me, all I need is to believe

    I've seen worse, did awful things
    Leave it on repeat, oh, I sing

    29.) Undertow - Lisa Hannigan
    I want to be, all of a sudden
    Every wave and undertow.
    I want to float
    Everywhere I go.
    30.) What's Up? - 4 Non Blondes
    And so I wake in the morning
    And I step outside
    And I take a deep breath and I get real high
    And I scream from the top of my lungs
    What's going on?

    So this is just my general spotify library on shuffle! Before you wonder where they are, the predictable things like Les Mis and Hamilton aren't on this playlist ;) None of these really overlap with my muse music, so these might apply more to situations than specific characters; I guess they'll be my thread inspiration when I'm back after exams! If you want to claim any in the meantime, give me a shout xD (ft. only vague notes so far.)

    1. Children Who Start Fires - To Kill a King
    I heard you burnt yourself again / Lighting fires with someone else / Just because you're cold / Just because you're bored / Just because you can. (unfaithful marriages! Either for Sally or Adaline)

    2. Colour Me In - Damien Rice
    So I tried to erase it / But the ink bled right through / Almost drove myself crazy / When these words led to you (accidental love confessions ahoy)

    3. Nobody's Born With a Broken Heart - Grace Potter
    I've met so many people / Chained to circumstance / And they're not asking for a miracle / All they want is a second chance

    4. Song For You - Joshua Radin
    "Find what you love and let it kill you" / But I have always been unsure / If this was spoken by a mad man / Or by a doctor with a cure

    5. Closer - Cape Cub
    Would you give it up for me? / I wanna know your love is out there on the front with mine / One way love will leave us black and blue inside

    6. Nobody's Empire - Belle & Sebastian
    We are out of practice we're out of sight / On the edge of nobody's empire / And if we live by books and we live by hope / Does that make us targets for gunfire?

    7. Glory - Bastille
    Deep in a corner of the night / We were lying in the middle of the road [...] / And drunk we set the world to rights / As we fell and hit our heads upon the curb (drunken shenanigans in the streets of Hogsmeade)

    8. Burning Pile - Mother Mother
    It goes, all my troubles on a burning pile / All lit up and I start to smile

    9. Pretty Pimpin - Kurt Vile
    I woke up this morning / Didn’t recognize the man in the mirror / Then I laughed and I said, “Oh silly me, that’s just me” / Then I proceeded to brush some stranger’s teeth / But they were my teeth... (someone's gonna have a polyjuice potion mixup/bodyswap, I know it)

    10. Drive It Like You Stole It - Sing Street
    This is your life / You can go anywhere / You gotta grab the wheel and own it / You gotta put the pedal down / And drive it like you stole it

    11. I Don't Wanna Be Sad - Simple Plan ...yes Simple Plan don't look at me >.>
    But I'm through I'm done I've had enough / I'll ditch this funk I tell you what (aka Overdosing on Cheering Charms)

    12. Meet Me In The Woods - Lord Huron
    Follow me into the endless night / I can bring your fears to life / Show me yours and I'll show you mine / Meet me in the woods tonight.

    13. Stand Too Close - Motion City Soundtrack
    I’m afraid I tend to disappear into an anxious state when you draw near / There is no reasoning it’s quite a silly thing / But it’s the way I’ve been for years / So I will understand if you don’t stay / They say I’m great at first but then the magic fades

    14. A Thread Cut With a Carving Knife - Stars
    It was a hot and sultry afternoon / Sometime at the end of June / We had collapsed ourselves in shade somewhere / To conclude our love affair / But it was too damn hot to speak that much / It felt easier to touch / So we forgot to fall apart that day / And the next day (aka putting off things you promised to do)

    15. For Forever - Dear Evan Hansen Soundtrack
    An open field that's framed with trees / We pick a spot and shoot the breeze / Like buddies do / Quoting songs by our favorite bands / Telling jokes no one understands / Except us two / And we talk and take in the view (bffs being bffs)

    16. Arsonist's Lullabye - Hozier
    When I was a child, I'd sit for hours / Staring into open flame / Something in it had a power / Could barely tear my eyes away / All you have is your fire... / And the place you need to reach - / Don't you ever tame your demons / But always keep 'em on a leash

    17. Big Casino - Jimmy Eat World
    Well there's lots of smart ideas in books I've never read / When the girls come talk to me I wish to hell I had (hurling thread? @the casino purely for the title!)

    18. This is London - The Airborne Toxic Event
    This is London, the place where you're a god or a disgrace [...] /Among the faceless dizzy whores, the unimaginable bores / Evenings stumbling from the pub, mornings shivering on the floor (well, it's for sure set in London.)

    19. The Book of You - Belle & Sebastian
    We’re always walking in the rain / And you’re just trouble, so I claim / Pretend the world can see / That I’m the one for you / And you’re the one for me

    20. Mistaken for Strangers - The National
    You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends

    21. Good Guys - Mika
    Don’t be offended, this might seem a little wrong / Where have all the gay guys gone? [...] Thank you Rufus, thank you Auden and James Dean / Thank you Emerson and Bowie for my dreams / Wilfred Owen, Kinsey, Whitman and Rimbaud
    (ahaha, subtly hunting down gay lit. or actual gay guys? @Ari, I guess you're up)

    22. Rootless Tree - Damien Rice
    Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you / And all we've been through [...] Let me out, let me out, let me out / Of this hell when you're around (ayyy angry song)

    23. Why Not Me - Locksley
    Won't you teach, teach, teach me if you can / How to be more cosmopolitan [...] Oh, how can I be you? / Oh, it's so easy for you to be / Just what everyone wants to be (this could 100% be someone getting a My Fair Lady-ish makeover about acting presentably in society)

    24. If I Lost You - Shiny Toy Guns
    And I don't know what I'd do if I lost you / And what in the world would I do without you? (someone thinks someone they care about is dead or gone or whatever! #panic)

    25. Enough To Go By - Vienna Teng
    It was years ago, God knows / When you strained to tell me your whole truth / That you were not mine to save / That you could not change [&] Cut those chains in the middle of the night / That had you pulled apart (lol maybe it's the chains mention, but I'm thinking JK werewolf stuff)

    26. Stuck on You - New Politics
    Put a spell on me / Walk away from me / It's called irony / Got me hypnotized / I am paralyzed (love potion/spell?)

    27. Honey Whiskey - Nothing But Thieves
    I think I better go before I try something I might regret

    28. Oh My Captain - Rayland Baxter
    Oh my captain, Oh my captain / I've been working hard for you / Trying to make you love me too (...er, quidditch captain????)

    29. One Bad Night - Hayley Kiyoko
    Just give me one bad night / You make me feel like / I wanna be bad

    30. Oxford Comma - Vampire Weekend
    Why would you speak to me that way / Especially when I always said that I / Haven't got the words for you / All your diction dripping with disdain

    Take Me Out to the Dancehall - Pat Green
    So take me out to a dancehall
    Tap my foot down to the rhythm
    Tell 'em to play them old songs that we all love
    And you tell me that you want me and I tell you that I want you too
    And I'll kiss your face, whenever you want me to.

    Wherever You Will Go  -Charlene Soraia
    So lately, been wondering
    Who will be there to take my place
    When I'm gone, you’ll need love
    To light the shadows on your face
    If a great wave shall fall
    It would fall upon us all
    And between the sand and stone
    Could you make it on your own?
    If I could, then I would
    I’ll go wherever you will go
    Way up high or down low
    I’ll go wherever you will go

    Last Name - Carrie Underwood @Benevolence Montague

    so the world will
    never find you!

    Suger High - Coyote Shivers
    I have search both far and wide
    I've explored the deepest caverns of my mind
    to try and find an explanation why
    I get this funny feeling deep inside
    when I think about my life
    I wanna kiss myself goodbye
    sugarhigh..
    gotta have it really need it to get by
    sugarhigh..
    I wanna feel it can't conceal it makes me high
    sugarhigh..
    need it now I've got to live until I die
    sugarhigh..
    can you feel it, can you feel it
    sugarhigh

    Philosophers -Eic Rap Battles of History @Natsuko Mountbatton - @Eva Sleptova this might be one for the girls.
    Bitch, I wrote The Art of War, so you better get your guns out!
    These white boys getting burned 'cause guess what? Now, the Sun's out!
    Asians spitting sick, but no, this isn't SARS!
    Laozi, kick the beat; now Confucius, drop some bars!

    Just Breath - The Beginning of @Severino Zabini's love of @Rachel Hart

    All I ask of You - Phantom of the Opera
    Say you'll love me every waking moment
    Turn my head with talk of summer time
    Say you need me with you now and always
    Promise me that all you say is true
    That's all I ask of you
    Let me be your shelter
    Let me be your light
    You're safe, no one will find you
    Your fears are far behind you

    Defying Gravity - Wicked @Ginevra Blackwood
    So if you care to find me
    Look to the western sky!
    As someone told me lately:
    "Everyone deserves the chance to fly!"
    And if I'm flying solo
    At least I'm flying free
    To those who'd ground me
    Take a message back from me
    Tell them how I am
    Defying gravity
