I feel like I’m picky with the music I listen to yet at the same time, what I love is pretty diverse. I love southern rap..the deeper the bass the better. I’m a Missouri born girl so a good country song sends me back to nights at the state fair. My first love was 80s pop and soft rock and I’m forever indebted to the ways 90s music makes me feel. Today I wanted to share some songs that I play over and over either because I have something on my mind and the lyrics take me back to a certain time or place..make me happy or the millions of things in between.
Better Now by Post Malone. When the beat softens and he sings, “I promise, I swear to you, I’ll be okay..you’re only the love of my Life,” I feel that.
“She said I don’t need a model, I don’t want a movie star. You don’t have to win the lotto, oh I want you to win my heart.” Next is Simple Things by Miguel. I love how true to himself Miguel is. He isn’t afraid to do his own thing and this song is a true favorite of mine. Damn, the things a girl tends to want are the simple things.
“In another Life I bet you were my girl♡” Next is In Another Life by D’Angelo. There’s something sad, beautiful and romantic to me about this lifetime not being the right lifetime for two people to be together. I think my fascination with this started way back in the day with Next Lifetime by Erykah Badu..but my most recent fascination with it is thanks to D’Angelo. The music is beautiful. D’Angelo is one of those artists you can tell pays attention to every detail that goes into crafting his music. It’s perfection.
Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears = my first ever Favorite Song.
“Saturdays when we dance in the dark in the room where it all gets real ♡” Saturdays by Twin Shadow ♡♡
“To be drunk and in love in New York City. Midnight into morning Coffee ♡” I Like Me Better by Lauv
“Everytime I see you falling I get down on my knees and pray. I’m waiting for that final moment You say the words that I can’t say ♡” Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order released the year I was born, 1986, and I heard it for the first time recently and it’s all I listened to for days!
Love Bites by Def Leppard. I heard this one morning in the gas station on the way to work, pulled out my Shazam to find out who it was by and literally played it the entire day at work. Another 80s throwback, released in 1987. “I don’t wanna touch you too much baby cause making Love to you might drive me crazy. I know you think that Love is the way you Make it, so I don’t wanna be there when you decide to break It.”
Inner City Blues by Marvin Gaye. One of the few songs that actually brings me to tears. It was released in 1971 and it’s insane how relevant to 2019 it is.
“And you come to me on a summer breeze, keep me warm in your arms then you softly leave. And it’s me you need to show. How deep is your love.”♡ How Deep is your Love by Bee Gees. Growing up Saturday Night Fever was my Mom’s favorite movie so the soundtrack was in constant rotation in our house. How Deep is your Love and More than a Woman are forever favorites♡
Share with me some of your favorite songs, favorite lyrics..whatever♡
