This will probably my most personal blog ever. My playlist sums up all of my emotions that I've felt. It sums up my bad days but also sums up some of my best days ever. I takes you through the points in my life were I felt like giving up, but also takes you through the points that I felt like I could fly. This playlist is apart of me, it's something that I've developed and made for about three years now, it's my safe place. So to whoever is reading this, I hope you get as much use out of it as I did. Now, I'm not going to share my whole playlist, but I will walk through the songs that I think we're of the most importance to me. And of course I will share the link to the rest of the playlist ;)
Collide- acoustic version by Howie Day
This song brings back my memories of when I felt like giving up. Whether it be in sports, school, or my friends. This song helped me know that everything will be okay. And that's good to be reminded of every once in a while.
" Even the best fall down sometimes"
Renegades- X Ambassadors
This song makes me feel alive. It makes me want to jump up and go on an adventure. This song is a song that I'd like to play when I'm happy or want to get something done. It's makes me feel powerful.
"Go forth and have no fear"
All I Want- Kadaline
this song is one I listen to when I feel lonely or lost. When I just need to feel like someone is going through the same pain as me.
" All I want is nothing more, to here you knocking at my door"
Run Around- Blues Travelers
This song will make you want to get up and dance. It reminds me of the intro of a movie we're everyone is dancing in the kitchen and just generally happy.
" and when your feeling open I'll still be here"
This Old Routine- First Aid Kit
If your not careful with this song, you could easily miss the meaning of it. They talk about how people go about their life. They talk about a man that has lived life just to live it, but has missed the good things that also come out of life. Most people just go through their everyday routine. Wake up, go to work, come home, eat, go to bed. And at some point you'll realize that this gets really boring. I listen to this when I'm ready for a change in my life. When I'm ready to break the routine.
" this old routine will drive you mad"
Waiting On The World To Change- John Mayer
This song I'd listen to when your honestly are feed up with people. It sounds like a awful thing to say, but honestly I feel like we all through those days we're people are just being really annoying. So listen to this when your ready for people to change.
" Me and all my friends. We're all misunderstood"
Rocket Man- Elton John
This is a very calming song. When you just need a break. While you listen go out side and lay down. Close your eyes and feel the earth under you. Hear the birds and the trees in the distance. When you sit up you feel peace. And honestly who doesn't need a little Elton John in their life.
"I'm not the man they think I am at home. I'm a rocket man"
These next songs were put in when I was about 13. This was a time we're life was really busy and crazy. So you'll notice that the songs are very acoustic and calming. It was my time to rest and reflect.
Old Pine- Ben Howard
the guitar in this song is simply amazing. At one point every thing in this song almost pauses and goes from the fingers picking of the guitar to almost acapella. At this time take a breath and know everything will be okay.
"We stood. Steady as the stars in the woods"
Dirty Paws- Of Mosters and Men
This song has amazing imagery. Everything in here, if you really listen to the lyrics is just very random and almost meaning less. If theirs a deeper meaning that anyone can find please let me know.
"They had a pet dragonfly"
Middle of My Mind- Tom Rosenthal
"Hello to you. Did you ever know that you were in the middle of my mind?"
All the Pretty Girls- Kaleo
Thisbsong really shows the emotions that this man goes through. He's sad because he can get someone to love him like his friend has.
" all the pretty girls like Samuel"
First day of my life-Bright Eyes
play this song when your ready to start your life with a new person.
"Think I was blind before I met you"
Yesterday- The Beatles
this is a good song for the days we're you are nervous for the day ahead of you. For when your already stressed out right when you roll out of bed.
"I believe in Yesterday"
I hope you guys find some songs that you can relate too and that can help you as much as they have helped me.
