The lovely Nel at Reactionary Tales recently was awarded this delightful tag. Her post came out so charming and interesting that I decided to accept her challenge to continue on the tag.

Over the years I have amassed quite a collection of music. I listen to all genres; I have different favorites at different times. A great part of my collection is not digital, though I have managed to digitize some albums and replace some. What I have done for this challenge is to go to iTunes, where a large portion of my music is stored, and hit shuffle play.  These are the first 15 that came up. Some of them are the unknown track from the B-side of an album. Some should be recognizable. Also yes, the one by Halford is Christmas music and I listen to Christmas music year-round. Still, I didn’t expect one to come up in a selection of only 15. But. Truth will out, as Grandma used to say. Like Nel, I’m not going to tag particular people and put you on the spot. However, I do challenge you to give it a whirl.

Here are the rules and following those are my songs chosen by a robot.

The Rules

Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating).

Tag 10 others to do it as well.

This has been fun. I’m not sure it tells you anything about me except that I listen to a fair amount of old music. Maybe I should do one about the ideal list that I wished had come up.

If any of you out there are moved to post your list, be sure and let me know.

Oh, and Happy 30th Birthday to my firstborn, Mathew, who was lucky to have listened to this type of music until he left home.

  1. Hahha you were right. I don’t know any of these songs except Percy Jackson. I’m so glad you did this tag though! 😁 I’ll have to give some of these a listen.
