the me + music tag / 2022 edition

Hullo, world!

I’ve been looking forward to today ever since the wonderful Ryan Elizabeth tagged me to do this–The Me + Music Tag!! It feels like a while since I did a tag, so it’s nice to be doing a goofy sort of post. (   ˙꒳​˙   )

THE RULES

  1. Link back to the original (Sophie @ Me and Ink) so she can see your answers and listen to the tunes.
  2. For every prompt you choose to do, name 1-5 songs (you can use Sophie’s graphics).
  3. Have fun and play your music LOUD!

DISCLAIMER: A lot of the music I listen to is not in English (oft. in Japanese) or don’t have lyrics at all (like classical ones). I won’t be able to translate those that are in Japanese, so yeah…
