This weekend I thought I would do a collection of songs I loved back in the day. They take me to my teen years when things were so much easier, of course you couldn’t have convinced me of that then!
Last week I started writing a brief reason why I chose each song and I will continue to do that, but this weekend it’s purely for the memories!
Bring on the nostalgia!
Okay, so I lied. I have to speak about this video. Michael was a HUGE part of my childhood. I adored him-he was my first boyfriend. He was always controversial and I’m not here to talk about that. I think he was THE true definition of a musical artist and a genius. I bet there’s hardly an artist since the ’80’s who can say they weren’t influenced by him. I wasn’t sure which song I was going to choose and then I came upon this video of his live performance at the 1988 Grammy Awards. I knew this was the one, where he was truly in his element. I love his emotion and connection to the music. And those dance moves? EPIC!
I decided to start doing something a little different with these posts. Their purpose is to share music that I like but I thought if I let you know why I like it, it would help you understand and get to know me better.
I hope you like the music I have chosen. Be sure to comment and let me know!
This song inspires me to let things go. There’s always going to be something trying to bring you down and you just have to shake it off. I love to listen to this on the treadmill.
I love the lyric “May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground,
Carry on.” It’s so profound to me; never give up, never stop moving forward, use your experiences as stepping stones.
I shared this not only because I just love Sam Smith’s voice, but because once you find that person who touches your soul, you should hold on for dear life and cherish them
This song reminds me of my husband, who unknowingly stole my heart with just a look and has been holding my hand ever since.
This song was introduced to me by my friend Angela. I just heard it for the first time when I created this post and I have to say, it’s pretty cool!
If you know me personally, you know I love music. I love all kinds of music and I believe there’s a song for every emotion.
The other day I was listening to music as I was writing and the idea to have a weekend kick off post dedicated to music popped into my head. The songs I choose will be a mix of genres and artists, some will be new, some will be older, but I guarantee they will upbeat and FUN!
I hope you feel motivated and happy after listening!
So here it is!
*Caution: The last video drops the “F” bomb but I think it suits the song very well.
