I've started to feel my blogs have become a bit moany and all "poor me my life sucks" so to lighten the mood, I thought it would be fun to get you guys involved! 
Thanks to tucker for inspiring me wit this blog. 
I'm a huge music fan and music inspires or helps me through alot of stuff. So I thought what better way to get to know all you blog readers then through something I love. It's kinda a music quiz/interview.  I'm gonna ask myself some questions (involving music) and answer them, then you guys can do the same :)
Ok so here goes:
1. Which song would you say best describes you?
Deffo got to be I'm just a girl by No doubt. These lyrics "the moment that I step outside, so many reasons for me to run and hide, I can't do those little things I hold so dear, cause its all those little things that I fear" pretty much sum me up, don't you agree? well the whole song really.  plus I love that song :)
2: What song would you say is your life story?
As you know I'm just a touch pessimistic so I've always said Travis- Why does it always rain on me? is my life put to music! I'm pretty sure I lied when I was 17 too Lol
3: Which song changed your life in anyway?
I know you might think I haven't had a song that has changed my life, no song has meant quite that much to me, but it could be a song that has just flicked a switched in your mind and changed even a tiny thing. 
My song is This grudge by Alanis Morrissette from the so called chaos album. I was a huge Alanis fan and around the time this song came out, we were having trouble with my sister Emma and I was finding it to forgive and forget. I didnt want to let her in incase I got hurt all over again but I heard these lyrics "but who's it hurting now? who's the that's stuck? who's it torturing now?"  and I thought your right, I'm the one suffering by not letting go! I'm pleased to say it worked we're now super close and I have my sister back! Thank you Alanis!! see life changing song :P
4. What song never fails to cheer you up?
Mines Tenacious D- Tribute. If you haven;t heard this song, its Jack black and it's funny. This song always makes me think of my other sister Lee, we both have the same silly humour and are quite hyper when we're together and this is one of our fav silly songs :)
5: Which cheesy/embarrassing song can you not help but love?
For me its deffo Love shack by the B52s LOL so cheesy, so strange but I can't help but sing along. I'm not ashamed to say that, while painting, when they sing "bang bang bang on the door baby, knock a little louder sugar etc" I do mime knocking on a door :P
6. What song makes you cry?
Nickleback- Lullaby. I don't know what it is about the song but it gets me every time. The first time I heard it I was really down and getting over the death of my uncle and everything felt like it was piling up. I remember hearing it and tears were just running down my cheeks, all I could think was I wish I had someone to sing those words to me, someone who just wanted to try and take the hurt away. It still makes me cry!
7. What lyric pulls you through a rough patch?
For me its "I never really gave up on, breaking out of this two-star town, I got the green light, I got a little fight, I'm gonna turn this thing around" it's from The Killers- read my mind. Whenever I feel like giving up on my dreams this just pops into my head and I think I have got a little fight, keep going Donna lol.
8. What song do you find yourself having a little sing-a-long and boogie too?
I know I always say I'm a rock chick and I really am a massive rock fan but my song is Kesha- we are who we are! I also sing along and dance to it. While its playing and i'm alone I have a little dance while making a drink or walking upstairs etc lol.
9. Have you ever sang a song on stage? if not whats your karaoke song?
I don't do karaoke, I wouldn't inflict this voice on anyone, my singing's saved for when im locked in the studio with my easel but I did once perform Who do you think you are by the spice girls, well I say performed- we mimed! It was the last year of school and me and 4 friends dressed  up as different members of the spice girls and performed the routine in a friends living room for her family :P I was posh spice purely because I had the bob haircut and a top and shirt quite like her lol 
10. Finally what song would you dedicate to me?
Might sound abit vain (and i'm not) but it's really just an excuse to dedicate a song to you guys. My song for you all is Kelly Clarkson- My life would suck without you. A little bit cheesy to say I know :P The title speaks for itself really but you guys really help me through so much, you give me advice, you pick me up when my spirits are low and more importantly make me laugh :) so cheers guys :)

Now I've done mine, I'd love it if you could comment with your answers :) thats where the getting to know you bit comes into it :P  don't worry you don't have to have an anwser for every question or make it as long as this. Just as long as you share with me I don't mind LOL :)
If you all liked this and enough people respond, maybe we could do more or similar?
I'll leave you to think with some music enjoy!
Till next time bye

1. Which song best describes you?
'Waiting On The World To Change' by John Mayer.

I want only good in the world, I know there will never be only good, but good always beats evil no matter how long it takes and who or what is lost. If there is no good, I make some.

2. What song would you say is your life story?
'Stop For A Minute [feat. K'naan']' by Keane.

I'm a thinker, I think a lot, but I'm calm, I'm composed and no matter how bad I feel or how low times can be, I do what the song says, stop and think.

3. Which song changed your life in any way?
'You Can't Always Get What You Want' by The Rolling Stones.

It's really a great moral, something you wouldn't think about, but even you have to admit you try get everything you want. Sometimes you have to face the facts.

4. What song never fails to cheer you up?
'Just A Day' by Feeder.

I first heard this on Gran Turismo 3 (PS2 game). It's so lively it just never gets old haha.

5. Which cheesy/embarrassing song can you not help but love?
I actually don't want to say because you might hold this against me one day.

6. What song makes you cry?
'Songbird [feat. Christine McVie]' by Fleetwood Mac.

Not much to say really, just makes me sad, reminds me of Senna.

7. What lyric pulls you through a rough patch?
Actions inspire me more than words.

8. What do you find yourself having a little sing-a-long and boogie to?
One does not sing or boogie. I do air-guitar the bass solo on 'Chains' by Fleetwood Mac though, irresistible!

9. Have you ever sang a song on stage? If not what's your karaoke song?
No, and probably anything by Kasabian and Oasis (besides 'Wonderwall').

Wouldn't know what to say, it's Oasis. They're great haha.

10. Finally, what song would you dedicate to me?
'Beautiful' by Eminem.

Life has its ups and downs, you always pick yourself up, this song is one I think that relates to you, and partly to me as well.

1) What song would I say best describes me:- its a tough one but I have to say probably Perfect by Pink - I've made many mistakes, took wrong turns like everyone but no-one is perfect and through it all I have come out the other end.
2) What song is my life story well that one is a tough one I can't really say but I like Beyonce I was here 'I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here, I did, I've done, everything that I wanted and it was more than I thought it would be'
3) Again a hard one but I like to think Lostprophets Better off dead the line 'I'd rather die on my feet, than ever live on my knees' it sort of made me think yes I'm never giving up I will fight till the end and deal with everything I'm faced with on my feet with my head held high.
4) Paolo Nutini Pencil Full of Lead - this song always make's me get up and dance :-) It just makes me think yeah I am really lucky and have a lot that others don't have, it makes me very thankful.
5) A cheesy song which I can't help but love, well right now I have to say Carly Rae Jepson's Call Me Maybe, I just love the song and lately it has a lot of meaning to it.
6) What song makes me cry - well there are a few Phil Collins I wish it would rain down, the music and the lyrics get me every time. Celine Dion Call the man never fails and Robbie Williams Angels - I can't listen to it as it was played at my brothers funeral and always breaks my heart.
7) I can't really pick a particular one - I like the Killers one you suggested and also Coldplays Fix you, kind of says you're not on you're own I suppose.
8) I have a good boogie to any We Are The In Crowd songs, or just any song with a good beat cause I just love to dance and boogie.
9) Yes I have sang alot on stage, my main song to sing is Madonna like a prayer but I also love and Adele or Kelly Clarkson song, and Beyonce's Ave Maria is a good one, and I love to sing any Lana Del Ray song or any Florence And The Machine song - I just love to sing 10) What song would I dedicate to you well that's a hard one but just simply cause you love them I would dedicate The Killers new song Runaways, as a fellow Killers fan I know you're so excited about the new song it's amazing.

Oceanic, Insanity... my life is a bit insane at times with some of the stuff that goes on

Another Train song... Parachute

8 What song do you find yourself having a little sing-a-long and boogie too?

Just now it's Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen but that's because it's never off my local radio station and my son has got it on loop in his room... well feels like that lol.

I don't have a karaoke song but twice I've sang Backsteet Boys, I Want It That Way. Once at our millennium party and then again at my leaving party for my old job a few weeks ago.
