So I opted for the song playlist because I love music and I feel that it is a great tool for self expression and my favorite number is 10. I strive to be an organized person so I created a list and each number corresponds with the song and why I chose it to be on my playlist. Enjoy!
(embedding didn’t work so heres the link again in case above does not work ;
1. Glee- Stereo Hearts
I love Glee. I actually do not watch much TV but for some reason I love this show. It is my guilty pleasure. Also this is a great song by Gym Class Hero and Adam Levine. The song is really catchy and its a bit outdated but I love the comparisoon between music and love.
2. Empire State Of Mind
This song was played everywhere for a long time for the Yankees a couple years ago but I just officially moved into NYC so it can be deemed as my theme song. I love all the allusions that I totally understand being a new yorker and Alicia Keys is very talented.
3. Seasons Of Love
My love for Broadway is huge. This song is from Rent which was my first show ever. I probably saw it 3 or 4 times before it closed. I think the music is great and the story is intriguing.
4. Danza Kuduro
My parents are from Paraguay, South America which makes me LATINA ! I love my culture, my food, my people, my history and especially my music.
5. Sway-Michael Buble
Michael Buble is a dreamboat. I love his Frank Sinatra feel..and this shows how I am a bit old fashioned, I love the old tunes and the romantic and blues era.
6. Hedwigs Theme
Harry Potter will always be my favorite book and movie, all of them. I love JK Rowling, this series was the first one that really got me as a child and inspired my love for reading and for magic. Plus the orchestration is beautiful.
7. Mario Brothers Theme
When I said before I don’t watch TV, I meant it. However I am attached to my phone, laptop and Wii. I love video games, not the crazy violent ones but the fun ones that you can chase away time with such as Super Mario. This was my ringtone for all of high school.
8. Little Town/Belle- Disney’s Beauty and The Beast
I love Disney. I have all the VHS tapes at home. Also I played Belle in Beauty and The Beast my senior year and it was a great show. I had so much fun with my cast and I loved the songs I got to sing, including this one.
9. Tonight (We are Young)
You have heard this song a thousand times. I still love it. Being a freshman in college I have this feeling of restlessness that is presented in the song and its just catchy. I also use this song to pump me up before a soccer game or when I’m working out.
10. Hey Jude
Lastly, The Beatles. Again, I’m a little old school. I love the Beatles, everything they wrote makes me smile when it comes onto my iPod. They were amazing musicians and I love playing this song on piano.
Hope I didn’t bore anyone and I can’t wait to see everyone else’s work.
