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”

I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)

I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker by Sandi Thom - Lauren MayhewThe number 1 song this time 10 years ago was I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair) by Sandi Thom.

I remember this one too, and looking down the list of number one’s after this, there’s a few amazing songs coming up! Continue reading “I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)”


The number 1 song this time 10 years ago was Crazy by Gnarls Barkley.

It’s been a while since I did this, so I’m going to start it up again.

Crazy: I remember this song and I absolutely loved it – still do! I think this might have been the point in my life when I started to appreciate music, and back then I was a little bit crazy. Not crazy in a psycho killer way, just not afraid to make a fool of myself. Continue reading “Crazy”

When the Sun Goes Down

The number 1 song this time 10 years ago was When the Sun Goes Down by the Arctic Monkeys.

I can honestly say that I’ve never heard this song before. I’m not a fan of the Arctic Monkeys, but I may give this song a listen one day… Continue reading “When the Sun Goes Down”

I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor

The number 1 song this time 10 years ago was I bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor by the Arctic Monkeys.

I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor: No one has ever told me I look bad when I’m dancing, so I suppose that’s a good thing. I really love to dance, but not to club music. It’s not very easy to dance to a dull, monotonous beat. I prefer proper songs from an iPod, not the remix club versions.

When I was at school, I took part in the production of High School Musical. We did a rehearsal once, and I remember one of the teacher’s watching came up to me at the end and said that I really ‘lit up’ when I was performing. That was a very big compliment for me, as I was a very shy person back in school. It was nice of her to single me out and tell me that I was doing well!

A boy a few years below me had told me that I was really good in it too, but, being so self conscious, I though he was having a laugh at me. I now start to realise that I may actually have been quite good!

So basically, I like to dance and I’ve had a few compliments about it, so I suppose I do look good on the dance floor!

Push the Button

I’ve decided to do this new thing where I will tell you more about me. I’m rubbish at telling people about myself, so I’m going to use prompts to try and tell you quirky facts about me.

To do this I am going to use song titles, but not just any old song title – the Number 1 single from 10 years ago. Technically, I’d love to do this from 25 years ago, but I don’t know as many of those songs.

Obviously, if a song is at Number 1 for more than one week, I may not write something about myself every week. Unless it’s an amazing title! Some of these stories about me may be very short and others relatively long. It depends what I have to tell you all.

The song that was Number 1 this time 10 years ago was Push the Button by the Sugababes. I cannot believe this is 10 years old!

Push the Button: I have a thing about buttons (not clothing buttons). You know in films when people say, “Whatever you do don’t press that button,” I’d press it. Without a doubt, I’d press it.

If I’m in a shop and we stumble upon kids toys, I will forever be standing there pressing all the buttons. At Christmas, when all of the musical toys are out. I will press them all just to see them dancing and singing.

I just can’t not press buttons. What a weirdo…

Where can I find a Love Life?

I’m 22 years old, 23 at the end of this year, and I’ve never been in a relationship. No dates. No hand holding. No kisses. No … I think you get the picture.

So, does anyone know where to find a love life?

To put things into perspective.. I don’t even have any male friends. I can count my total amount of friends on one hand, so the chances of me meeting someone through a friend is not going to happen.

Anyway, the guys that I do know through family are not the sort of people I would even want to be seen with anyway. One word: drugs. I think that says it all.
