THE LILAH MUSIC CHALLENGE // aka lots of songs splattered everywhere

It's a long story.

I wasn't involved, but I witnessed it.

I'm sorry if that intro makes no sense, but I'll provide some links in a moment that will explain all. XD

Here are Mary Kate's guidelines for this challenge.

Not rules, GUIDELINES.

1. Link back to me, because I am queen of all. (*rolls eyes* Follow THIS LINK to visit the queen of all's blog. xD)

2. Or Link back to Lia's post, because it amuses me (Okay, we'll do that too. HERE is the post. For anyone who cares to be amused.)

3. Come and comment that you've done the tag so I can read it and laugh all over again. (I'll probably do this too, haha.)

4. Answer the questions. (Okay, fine. If I have to. But then again, this is just a guideline...)

5. Tag your friends so that they hate you. (Hmmm, this is interestingly worded. XD)

Let's get into this, then! I didn't want to link all of the songs in this post, but I wanted to link some of them. So that's why some are linked and some aren't. You guys can take a hint, can't you? ;)

There's a blog called killjoy that has a lot of music-y stuff in it. You guys should check it out!

Spirit FM, I guess.

55. What musician do you listen to the most?

Beyonce has fewer songs that are marked "explicit" on Spotify, so I guess her.

Really, though, it's NEITHER.

57. Listen to a song by Justin Bieber (or any musician you really don't like) and write a paragraph long review on it?

I've already heard Justin Bieber songs! I've heard them over the Walmart speaker, I've heard them over the trampoline park speakers and the amusement park speakers. I've even heard them while traversing the slums of Honduras! (I kid you not, we were going house to house during our mission trip and I heard "Sorry" playing on a radio somewhere nearby. O_O)

58. Last musical you watched?

The Greatest Showman, I think.

59. Musical you've never watched but really want to?

The Phantom of the Opera.

60. If you could only pick one musical to see on Broadway, what would it be?

Dear Evan Hansen, I guess. *shrug*

61. Favorite musical score from a movie that is not a musical?

I like the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children score A LOT, though I've never seen the movie.

62. Last musical you belted while walking around your house?

I don't belt musicals...

63. Song from your favorite musical that you hate/dislike?

"This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman. I don't dislike it, and it was certainly a powerful moment in the movie (<3 <3 <3). It's just my least favorite of the songs, I think.

64. Favorite song from the Greatest Showman soundtrack?

A Million Dreams!!!

65. Do you have any musical merch?



Guess what?? You made it to the end! You stuck it out and read this entire post, all 65 questions! I APPLAUD YOU, FRIEND.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you want to take this on, feel free to steal it. You know the drill. ;)

Have you heard any of these songs?
Did you decide to listen to any of the ones I linked?
Let's talk about music in the comments!

The Lord's Truly,


  1. I love this challenge! It's so much fun to really get an idea of everybody's music tastes. <3 I'd love to see Phantom or Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway, too <3 (although I think my first choice would have to be either Wicked or Hamilton)...

    1. Me too! Reading about so many songs and music tastes has been a lot more fun than I might have expected, to be honest. XD

      I LOVE the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack (well... most of it, haha), and all I know is it would be DARN COOL to see Phantom.

      I've heard of Wicked and Hamilton but know incredibly little about them! I know, shameful. XD (The Hamilton fandom is enormous and... crazily fanatical. I'm almost afraid of it, lol)

    2. We can be a little bit crazy just listen to the musical a couple of times and see what you think, then worry about joining the fandom. I'm not TECHNICALLY part of it (I pretend to be...but no). Ya know. XD


  2. Wow, a lot of these are so similar to me! I think I'm going to steal this for a post in July (just because I love music that much).

    1. That's so cool, Sarah!!! Yesssss, STEAL IT. I already can't wait for your post. :D

      I love music so much too. <3 <3

  3. MWAHAHAHA I've already tackled this monster of a tag, and it's scheduled to come out on my blog in a week or two.... But it's been so much fun to read everyone's answers, although I've never heard half the songs or artists they mention....(yeah, so my post should be quite interesting...)

    But this right here "Annoying songs are always playing over some speaker in a public place" YEEEEESSSSSS someone understands my pain. *runs around screaming*

    1. Oooooh, I'm looking forward to seeing your answers - ALL SIXTY-FIVE, lol! :D

      *high-five* *runs around screaming with you* You feel my pain!!! Annoying songs everywhere! XP

  4. Owl City and Twenty One Pilots are the best!

  5. "What kind of parent would put their baby in a tree?" Lol, my thoughts. To be fair, though, if anyone did that, it would be Raegan and Peter because they are obsessed with that tree. (And don't be getting your head wrapped around the idea of #Raeter kids because that ain't happening. I was speaking metaphorically.) XD

    Love this post. <3

    1. I know, right? XD

      AND OH MY GOODNESS, I SEE AN OPPORTUNITY. ;D But still... I can't imagine Raegan and Peter putting their baby in that tree no matter how much they love it. They would be awesome parents.

      And I'm gonna shut up now, before I get weird. ^_^

  6. Oooh....I loved reading you answers, Lila!:) This sounds like such an amazing tag *is longing looking at the tag but doesn't really want to steal it.* Also I LOVE "At last I see the light" from Tangled too!:)

    1. Thank you, Quinley! It is an amazing tag. :D



    You did a great job answering all of them. xD And NF! Is on your list!!! I approve. :D

    1. I KNOW, RIGHT. O_O

      Thanks, Melissa! xD And yessss, he is!!! He could he NOT be on the list?? :D

  8. Heehee, I still love the sound of country music, but lately have been avoiding a lot of the new stuff because it's nasty!

    And Fight Song is perfect for a power song <3

    Awesome job, Lila!

    1. That's cool! And I feel you, secular songs from any genre of music can get nasty. :/

      Ikr?? It was an easy answer, I won't deny. :D

      Thanks, Catherine!!
