The Me & Music Tag (i go wild with music recs) 🎶

hello everyone and welcome back!! today, i’m back with a tag that nobody tagged me for, despite having literally dozens of other tags that i should be doing 😌 welcome to my version of the me & music tag, created by the lovely sophie (blog linked below)! what can i say, i just can’t resist a chance to ramble on about music and recommend my favorite songs to everyone i meet. my music taste is quite eclectic and ranges from musical theater to christian to k-pop to regular pop—but i’m always taking more recommendations, so be sure to drop all your faves in the comments below! ❤️

i’ve made sure to include a link to a (preferably live) rendition for all the songs i discuss, as well as a lyric video if needed. and i also have a spotify playlist with all the songs that you can listen to if you’d like! keep in mind that some of these songs contain language/themes that i wouldn’t recommend to everyone. hope you enjoy~

onto the post!! 🤗

The YouTube channel The Shows Must Go On! is streaming live one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s internationally renowned musicals every Friday night and leaving them available to watch for 48 hours as part of a fundraiser for the Actors Fund, in an effort to help theater professionals affected by the coronavirus. This weekend, it was the Royal Albert Hall performance of The Phantom of the Opera. I am ashamed to admit it was my first ALW musical, but boy, was it worth it.
