The 30 Day Music Challenge

The 30 Day Music Challenge

Every now and again, you can come across challenges on Facebook and I love to take part in them. The trouble is, I’ve got such a bad memory that I forget to do them for a day or two on the trot and never end up finishing them. This one was no different. So I decided to put my answers into a nice little blog post. I give to you, my 30 Day Music Challenge.


The 30 day music challenge is a fun way to rediscover music you had long forgotten about. Read all about it and see my results.



Day 1 – A song you like with a colour in the title: Muse – Supermassive Black Hole


Day 2 – A song you like with a number in the title: Green Day – 21 Guns


Day 3 – A song that reminds you of Summertime: Bob Marley – Stir It Up


Day 4 – A song that reminds you of someone you would rather forget about: Michael Jackson – Bad (despite this, I still love it!)


Day 5 – A song that needs to be played LOUD: Oliver Heldens – Last Night


Day 6 – A song that makes you want to dance: Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop The Feeling!


Day 7 – A song to drive to: Robbie Williams – Mixed Signals


Day 8 – A song about drugs or alcohol: Guns N’ Roses – Mr Brownstone


Day 9 – A song that makes you happy: The Ramones – Baby I Love You


Day 10 – A song that makes you sad: The Hollies – He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother


Day 11 – A song that you never get tired of: The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – Face Down


Day 12 – A song from your preteen years: Take That – Could It Be Magic


Day 13 – One of your favourite 70’s songs: Creedence Clearwater Revival – Have You Ever Seen The Rain?


Day 14 – A song that you would love played at your wedding: Kings Of Leon – Use Somebody (our first dance song)


Day 15 – A song that is a cover by another artist: Mark Ronson feat Amy Winehouse – Valerie

      I believe Could It Be Magic was released in 1992 – I would have been 11….! 😄

    This is such a good post! You’ve got me in the mood for music this morning. I love your taste in some of them too. Muse and Green Day are firm favs. Plus that Meghan Trainor song is brilliant. I can’t get on board with Snow Patrol though. That would go under my someone to forget catagory 😉

      Haha! It breaks my heart as it reminds me of a bad time! That’s all. Never been a particularly huge fan! Glad you enjoyed the post – it took AGES to put together, I kept changing my mind! 😄

    He ain’t heavy, but my brother is… always bring s a smile to my face when I hear that one.

    Great list, will maybe put my list together.

      It’s funny how different songs mean different things to people. That’s a real sad one for me as it was played at my Uncle’s funeral. Please do let me know if you do one 🙂

  4. 18th February 2017 / 3:01 pm

    This is a great idea and I love the songs you have here. About to head over and check the second half! I really love ‘Super Massive Black Hole’ too. Suspect I might have to copy you on that one if I give it ago. Music is so powerful and really brings back memories! #fortheloveofBLOG

      18th February 2017 / 4:12 pm

      It really does. It took me ages to put it together because I kept changing my mind! Let me know if you do one, I’d love to see it 🙂

      Yay! Glad you enjoyed – and a challenge it was! It took up most of a Sunday afternoon! 😀 xx

  10. 20th February 2017 / 6:45 pm

    Having read both posts i love how varied your taste is – I love me some Queen and Bowie!! Quite possibly my all time favourite tune of all time!! #anythinggoes

    • Jaki
      20th February 2017 / 6:58 pm

      I love so many different types of music! I’m most partial to the loud guitar variety though – I think this comes through on this post! 🙂

  11. 20th February 2017 / 7:57 pm

    Ooh I love this post, do you mind if I pinched it and credited it back to you? 🙂 #MarvMondays

    • Jaki
      20th February 2017 / 8:19 pm

      Of course not – go for it, that would be lovely, thank you! Let me know when you’ve done it and I’ll be sure to check it out 🙂 x

    Ooh, I love this! There are some good songs here 🙂

    Can you just do this or do you have to be challenged by someone? I’d love to give it a go! #MarvMondays

    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:44 pm

      It’s not a tag it’s just something I saw and turned it into a blog post. Feel free to have a go! Just send me the link so I can see it! 😄👍🏼

  14. 21st February 2017 / 2:07 pm

    I’m music obsessed so this is something I can definitely get down with!

    Kings of Leon Use Somebody is great! You have amazing taste in music. I better save this in my draft folder so I can do it, too!


    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:44 pm

      Oh wow please do and send me the link. I’d love to see it. I think it’s safe to say I like a bit of everything when it comes to music! 🙂

  15. 21st February 2017 / 2:33 pm

    Oh wow what a good idea this is. Brilliant song choices too #marvmondays

    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:43 pm

      Thank you. It was fun!

  16. 22nd February 2017 / 6:07 pm

    Oh god I love this play list, I now have bob marley blaring out of my computer and my son has come in and given me a quizzical look! I need to educate him in his music tastes!:) I’m going to enjoy playing a few of these while I’m sat here. Thank you!



    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:41 pm

      Ah my pleasure! So glad you enjoyed it. I had fun putting it together! Doesn’t that Bob Marley track put you straight on the beach!! 😎xx

  17. 22nd February 2017 / 6:23 pm

    Well done on completing the challenge! I am not much of a music person myself so I would find it very hard to do such a thing. Any month-long challenge is a struggle anyway – Life gets in the way and I just forget about them after a while. x

    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:40 pm

      That’s exactly what happened so I sat down and did it in one go! It was good fun! X

  18. 23rd February 2017 / 8:13 pm

    Love this challenge you should make it a tag! Thank you for sharing with us at #ablogginggoodtime 🎉

    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:37 pm

      I think a few people are doing it so feel free to have a go! 🙂 x

    23rd February 2017 / 9:03 pm

    Agree with day 6! I can’t say it’s my favourite song but as soon as it comes on you want to dance and sing along to it! x

    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:36 pm

      Absolutely! You can’t help yourself can you?! X

  20. 24th February 2017 / 4:49 am

    This is a great idea for a post. I love Muse and Green Day were my faves when I was a teenager. The only music I get to listen to these days is toddler tunes and kids film soundtracks!!xx #pocolo

    • Jaki
      24th February 2017 / 6:36 pm

      Ah bless you, I went through that stage but I think my brainwashing is paying off! 😄 Xx

  21. 24th February 2017 / 6:29 pm

    These are all such good choices. I like most of these songs and some of them I had forgotten about!

    I love that KOL song! Music harbours so many memories and can bring about so many emotions – that’s why this challenge is so brilliant. It’s so emotive for people. You have a great mix of songs here! Oh I might just have to give it a go. Thanks for joining us at #familyfun xx

    • Jaki
      26th February 2017 / 8:17 am

      Yes please do! I’d love to see what you come up with. There’s a whole load of memories in this one post. It was great to put together! X

  23. 25th February 2017 / 5:15 pm

    There’s some great songs in there – and I think I’d get sidetracked on this one! Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    • Jaki
      26th February 2017 / 8:14 am

      It took ages! But was fun!

    Always love a bit of Green Day – they were the soundtrack to my teenage years! Love how eclectic this list is too – oh, and you can’t beat a bit of early Take That! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

      2nd March 2017 / 10:11 pm

      It’s safe to say I have a varied taste! It never gets boring! Thanks so much 🙂
