Shuffle Play Questions

Shuffle Play Questions - Lauren Mayhew AuthorI’ve done one of these before, but I’m almost certain I cheated a  little. There were either answers that made no sense at all, or I was embarrassed to admit to some of the music on my iPod. This time, I’m gonna do it properly!

Here are 20 questions that I’m answering with Shuffle Play on my iPod. Hopefully some of them work well enough to be amusing. I’m going to put the title of the song first, then the artist, then the album/ single that it’s from. Continue reading “Shuffle Play Questions”


Don’t Stop Me Now

Don't Stop Me Now - McflyI’m gonna switch this up a bit. Instead of writing a post according to what was number 1 this time 10 years ago, I’m going to write a post every week (hopefully) based on a number 1 single from the past. This means more regular posts, as some singles stayed at the top spot for 9 weeks or more and it seems silly to wait.

I’ll be selective with this, and I’ll choose songs that I know. Even though I’m writing a story about me in relation to the title of the song, I find it a lot easier if I actually know the song. Continue reading “Don’t Stop Me Now”

Songs to Write to

Lauren Mayhew Author MusicI know everyone is different when they write and some people like to work in complete silence, whilst others have to have music playing. I personally, cannot write in silence, but if I play familiar songs, I find myself singing along to them and not doing any writing.

Old Drawings

I just found an old drawing that I did for someone when I was in college. I really am quite proud of it! Obviously, I know who it is, but can you figure it out? I may have given it away with one of my tags, i.e. his name!

Tom Fletcher McFly

Here’s another clue. This is something I made for a song called ‘Bubblewrap’ sung by the above person. Ignore the Tumblr URL on the image! This is now my Tumblr.


I also found this drawing that I did of my hand. I think I did this for my art GCSE.

I just wanted to share this with you all. What do you think? Can you tell who I drew in the first picture? Let me know!

What can you tell about me from my music?

I think you can tell a lot about a person by the music that they listen to. I put my iTunes on shuffle and skipped through the first 10 songs.

I then looked at my most played songs and I’ve listed the top 5. This is what came up.
