Music is such a powerful form of art that has the ability to inspire, to help cope with problems, and to just make you feel infinite. Sometimes you hear a song and it’s like the songwriter took the words right from your mouth. Some songs feel like they are written just for you and others are so catchy that you can’t help but hum them while your working. The most beautiful part of music is that no one person will get the same thing out of a song. Even though songs are heard by millions, it means something different to us all.
i don’t wanna be you anymore- Billy Eilish
You always need a song to sing when your down and this one is the perfect one for me on days where I don’t want to deal with myself. When I first heard this song, it just immediately resonated with me. “Don’t be that way, Fall apart twice a day”. My emotions just seem to run all over the place and I sometimes hate that I’m always such an emotionally driven person. Sometimes it’s tiring being yourself because like Billy said, “You are always you. Forever. That’s terrifying.”
I’ve Got You Under My Skin- Frank Sinatra
Before I could even read at the benchmark for my age, I could recite all the lyrics to this song. Sinatra is a timeless classic and on the weekends in my house, that was all we ever listened to.
Lost in Japan- Shawn Mendes
Any soundtrack of mine is also not complete without a Shawn Mendes song. Lost in Japan is unlike the majority of Shawn Mendes songs with a very 80’s sound. The beat of this song is everything and whenever I hear it, I’m ready to jam.
Every Little Thing She Does is Magic- The Police
Out of all the Police songs, this is one of my favorites because the poeticness of the song and the addictive melody just make you fall in love with it. The refrain “Every little thing she does is magic” is sweet and makes you think about how when you love someone, your obsessed with everything they do and they can’t do anything wrong in your eyes.
“I don’t want to know what it’s like to live without you, Don’t want to know the other side of a world without you”. These lyrics are the definition of romantical and it makes me want to smile every time I hear these lyrics. The concept of not wanting to live without this one person because you love them that much is pretty powerful!
Careless Whisper- George Michael
George Michael! Enough said! Period!
I don’t think it’s possible to have a playlist without including at least one Beatle song. Yesterday is reflective and thought-provoking and the melancholy melody just gives me all the feels!
If you couldn’t already tell by this post, I love music and it’s something that I can’t go through a day without. I love how poetic songs can sound and I also enjoy music with a catchy beat. My music genre is not specific to one era or one genre and I have my parents and siblings to thank for that. When I was younger, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Bobby Vinton were all that ever played in the house so; I got exposed to music from the 40’s onward. My music taste consists of songs that date back to decades before I was born along with recent music. I think music is something so special and reflects the era and the period at hand.
What songs would be on your playlist on your life? What genre of music do you listen to the most? What decade of music is your favorite?
