    I chose these ten songs because when I asked myself what songs describe me, these were my first opinions. Each song display a different emotion or trait of myself. H.Y.F.R is the first song I chose and it stands for Hell Yeah F*****g Right. It’s about living your life careless of other people and their opinions.As long as I am living the right way by my standards, I will have a fun, exciting, youthful life. Love All Over Me is self explanatory. I feel like I have more than enough people supporting me and caring for me. With my team(family/loved ones) around, I always literally feel love all over me. Can’t Do This explains how a young woman went through emotional,verbal, and physical abuse and won’t be broken. She was fed up and she could not continue to lead the life she was living. She couldn’t, she wouldn’t. I can relate to this song because I know what it’s like to start over. You have to be strong and know that better is out there.Gyal A Bubble is a party/dance song. I love reggae music and I decided I would put my favorite song on my playlist. N****a In Paris is one of my favorite songs ever. Jay Z and Kanye West talk about getting wasted and partying in Paris. The message that relates to me is they made it and they came from some of the worst situations and/or places. I feel in my life I have greatly overcome alot of negative things. I Know I Can is a very positive song for all children. The lyrics to the chorus are “I know I can (I know I can) be what I wanna be (be what I wanna be) if I work hard at it (if I work hard at it) I’ll be where I wanna be (I’ll be where I wanna be). I believe this songs describes me because, mother as a I would relay that message any and everywhere, to all children. I believe strongly in the message Nas made and I definitely advocate it. Empire State of Mind is like the New York anthem for me. It fills me with such pride to sing this song. I am a proud New Yorker and I believe, like the song states, if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. Aston Martin Music expresses my romantic side. Sometimes, you just want to get away with your significant other. Despite where you go or what you do, it doesn’t matter as long as you are with that person. I feel like sometimes I want to escape to a place where it’s just me and my boyfriend, no worries at all. The next song, I feel was especially written for me. Not only can the lyrics apply for your partner or family members, but the world in general. “Please don’t judge me, and I won’t judge you, ’cause it can get ugly, before it gets beautiful, So please don’t judge me, and I won’t judge you, and if you love me, then let it be beautiful”. I feel alot of economic and social problems could be solved with this phrase. Also, I would not anyone judging me or vice versa that way the chance of a relationship wouldn’t be damaged from the beginning. Beyonce’s Who Run The World let’s me feel powerful. Yes, I believe all girls rule the world. I have a strong sense of womanhood and you can tell from my attitude.
