Songs of My Life – March 2011

Blue Skies Again by Jessica Lea Mayfield
My friend Heather played this song on her iPod as she, her roommate Nikki, and I sat in the park on the first warm day of spring. It summed up my feelings for winter and how over it I was

Rumour Has It by Adele
I just love the drums, song, & tempo of this song.

New Low by Middle Class Rut
Lyrically, I just connect to this song. “I’ve been right. I’ve been left. I’ve been wrong. I’ve left behind. I’ve been up but mostly down.”

Voices by Chris Young
Rocking a little country here and again, it’s a song I connected to lyrically. When I need answers, I think of what my mom or grandpa would say to me from the heavens and what my dad would say to me now and what my grandma would say to me if she could remember who I was.

Another Like You – Hayes Carll
This reminds me of “The Gin Mill Girls” which is myself, Suzanne, Heather, Nikki, & Krissie. The song is sassy and sometimes unclassy just like we are when we get together.

Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars
This song is a song I put on a play list I have for my nieces. I had heard the song before but never really paid attention to the song until I watched the video in the blog post “Acceptance” and it just made me think of my oldest niece and how she’s going through that insecurity, everyone hates me, I am ugly age when in reality she’s one of the smartest most beautiful girls I know.

Our Hearts Are Wrong by Jessica Lea Mayfiedl
Just like the lyrics.

Tonight (I’m Loving You) by Enrique Iglesias
I can’t even believe I like this song but it makes me want to dance.

Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show
Just reminds me of drinking @ The Gin Mill

Walk On by G. Love
It’s G. Love, what’s not to love right? It’s the lyrics. Shocked? You shouldn’t be. “

American Boy by Estelle
Another The Gin Mill drinking song. The Gin Mill plays random music and I love it.

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley
I heard Leonard Cohen’s version of this song while I was sitting in the artist chair at Fu’s Custom Tattoos. Closure had been achieved. Tattoo tribute to my mom was in the final steps and everything seemed right in the world.
