“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”
— Maya Angelou
To me, music is life. My headphones are either in my ears, wrapped around my neck, or close by in my bag. I never leave home without them. I was once asked if I slept and showered with my headphones still in. At any point in time I will have a song playing in my head as if it is a soundtrack to my life.
Here is a playlist I made of some of my favorite songs. One of my favorite things to do is trade playlists with my best friend. We usually write out all the songs and then explain why we like the song or a reason we added it to the playlist. I’ll list a few below but if you like a song, let me know why! Or send me a song from one of these bands that you like.
Cross My Mind – A R I Z O N A – this is one of my favorite compilations. From the music to the lyrics to the beauty in the vocals I am always in love with how well this song blends together. Even the second version of the song (part 2) gets more beautiful.
Waves – The Dear Hunter – This song inspired and touched me so strongly I decided to get a tattoo of a lighthouse on my forearm. I will always remember there is light even when going through rough seas.
broken – lovelytheband – The lead singer was part of another band I really liked (Oh Honey) and this new band is exactly where his voice belongs.
