The 30 Day Song Challenge


I'm sure you've seen this challenge floating around Instagram for the last few weeks, but rather than spam my stories with a daily song, I thought I'd compile them all into one nice comprehensive blog post. Not only does this mean you won't have to tap through them if you're not interested, but it means that if you are looking for song recommendations, this post is a great place to find thirty songs that I love! Now, I cannot take any credit for this song challenge idea, one of my best pals Matt actually suggested it, so thank u! U da bomb.

Lol, no judgment on these choices, please. For a few of the days I actually had no idea what to pick, so do excuse the few randoms mixed in. I had noooo idea what to pick for day 30, so picked a song that I used to overplay that drove everyone crazy... If you've never heard it, it's a classic. You might also notice that Dermot Kennedy makes quite an appearance - it's fair to say I'm a big fan. But, anyway, there we have it, my attempt at the 30 day song challenge... 

What song reminds you of yourself? (What does that even mean?)

  1. Such a great idea, it's so much easier to read the challenge in a blog post rather than endless insta stories! Great choices, I feel like you can really get to know someone by what they choose each day! x

  2. OMG that N-Dubz has taken me back to my teen years! There's some amazing songs on here Becca, I did a song challenge a little while back and I need to look for another one to do! x
