I love music. I feel like its in me. Flowing through my veins. I'm a crappy singer but music for me is the ultimate way to feel. It moves me, shakes me, inspires me. Here's a few of my favorites right now.
Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri
I realize that this song is kind of depressing to some people but I LOVE it. I don't see it that way. I think it is empowering. Every time it comes on my IPod I play it over and over. Her voice haunts me. Christina Perri just came out with a CD on Tuesday and I'm getting it ASAP. Also, can have her amazingly awesome hair? Think I could rock it?
Firework by Katy Perry
When I first heard this song I cried. I needed it at the exact moment I heard it. And it has stuck with me. It's on my workout playlist, it is the ringtone on my phone. Even the Boy knows it now. Everytime he hears this song he runs to my phone. BOOM! BOOM! EVEN BRIGHTER THAN THE MOON! It's always been inside of you! Just listening to now makes me want to get up and dance and scream it out at the top of my lungs.
Perfect by Pink
Okay so there is a curse word in that one, but I'm ignoring it. You're so mean when you talk about yourself, you are wrong. Change the voices in your head, make them like you instead. AGH! How can you NOT love a song that says that? I think about the Boy too and I think, PLEASE, PLEASE know how special and amazing you are! LOVE this song.
Coming Home by Diddy featuring Skylar Gray
Oh COME ON. You know you've got a little Diddy in your rotation. Look, I have no excuse. I just like it.
Rolling in the Deep by Adele
This girl can wail. She sings with such force it amazes me. I fell in love with her back with Chasing Pavements and the love affair just continues. Her new album is UH-MAZ-ING. You need it now. I'm not kidding. Her voice is so raspy and has such an old quality to it. Love, love, love.
So there's a few of my current favorites! What are you listening to these days?
