    Posted by luucyygoosey on July 19, 2014 at 21:12

    1. …cleaning your room?
    something really happy or funny (i.e. Silly Songs with Larry (don’t judge me) or parody songs like Weird Al). I also listen to Apologetix
    2. …driving your car?
    my mom’s car is really old so it still has a place for cassette tapes so we’ll normally listen to the Shrek soundtrack on cassette
    3. …taking a bath?
    “Don’t Stop Believing” or other uptempo songs
    4. …working out?
    Acapella bands like Pentatonix or other music that’s very dancey. I like Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra and singers like them, too
    5. …doing homework?
    Music that keeps me calm, but also not calm enough to fall asleep (if that makes any semse) like OneRepublic’s Dreaming Out Loud album or anything by Casting Crowns, Lifehouse, or Switchfoot
    6. …going to sleep?
    Anything by Casting Crowns or OneRepublic, especially their ones with piano intros.
    7. …cooking?
    Songs by artists like Jason Mraz or Sam Smith or James Vincent McMorrow
    8. …getting ready for a fun night out?
    I’ve always been a theatre kid, and there’s one song in a musical called “13” and it was written by Jason Robert Brown, and the song is called “Getting Ready,” so normally when I’m getting ready I’ll sing along to that song (and the whole album because it’s pretty great)
    9….laying out by the pool or lake?
    Something peaceful and/or acoustic like Jason Mraz or Sam Smith or Casting Crowns and sometimes OneRepublic or f.u.n. or Imagine Dragons.
    10. …doing crafts or working on a project of some sort?
    I’ll normally get stressed really easily, so I’ll listen to any of my Christian playlists to keep me calm(:

    Posted by kathylynn96 on July 19, 2014 at 19:08

    What is your favorite song to listen to while…
    1. …cleaning your room?
    Whatever’s on the radio.
    2. …driving your car?
    Songs from Frozen or whatever’s on the radio.
    3. …taking a bath?
    (… taking a shower?) Whatever song keeps playing in my head if I’m not thinking about how, for the past few days, there’s a spider in the bathroom I’m using, I’m too scared to kill the spider, I can’t use that part of the bathroom with it still alive, but yet, I can’t ask anyone to kill the spider, since I’m eighteen, it would seem childish of me to ask someone to come downstairs to kill the spider, and since the second youngest person in the house is 82. But I think I killed it by depriving it of food.
    4. …working out?
    Whatever playlist I have playing on my iPod. Usually Skillet songs.
    5. …doing homework?
    I don’t know. I haven’t really had homework at the school I went to. Either it was no homework at all or I could do the homework during free time during classes.
    6. …going to sleep?
    I don’t go to sleep listening to a song. Either I listen to a noise maker at home, (embarrasing…), or here in Michigan, I listen to no music or noise-maker-made-noise at all.
    7. …cooking?
    I don’t know how to cook anything, almost.
    8. …getting ready for a fun night out?
    I don’t really have any girl friends, since I have Asperger’s Syndrome and ADD, and boys are more prone to having developmental disabilities such as those than girls are, so I went to a mostly boy school. I was the only girl in my class for the last two years of my high school “career.” So, my “fun nights out” are not-so-fun nights with my family, or dates with my boyfriend, which I haven’t had since June 13th of this year, seeing How To Train Your Dragon 2, and I (emphasis on I) can’t really consider that a date, since my sister wanted to come and had to sit with us because of a situation at her school with a kid who’s going to be in tenth grade this year.
    9….laying out by the pool or lake?
    I don’t really know. I haven’t been able to this summer.
    10. …doing crafts or working on a project of some sort?
    None, really. I listen to the TV.
