I listen to old music, I know 🙂 ~ No particular order

Move Along by The All-American Rejects –

When you’re feeling down, move along. Even when your hope is gone, move along. This song is so inspirational. Whenever I’m down, happy, any feeling, I listen to this song anyway because it excites me. It makes me cheerful always! It’s upbeat, which makes me upbeat too. I just love the message because many times I’ve felt like giving up, but then I remember I have to keep moving along. Life doesn’t stop here, move along!

Dare You To Move by Switchfoot –

I love this video and this song! The video fits perfectly with the song. “I dare you to move, I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor.” I challenge myself to rise above when I feel like everything’s against me. There’s always going to be those that try to push you to the ground, you just have to keep moving, and lift yourself up no matter what.

Meant To Live by Switchfoot –

Another great song by Switchfoot, because I love them! This song reminds me that I’m meant to live for so much more than what the world thinks I should live for. I’m meant to do great things. I’m meant to help others, meant to bring some change into the world, and this song reminds me on a daily basis of that.

Somewhere I Belong by Linkin Park –

I use to have my moments where I felt like my life was over. I felt like giving up. I felt lost. I felt pain. This song helped me with my pain (somewhat) because I could relate to it. I always wanted to feel like I belong, and now I know where I belong! 🙂

Oh Mother by Christina Aguilera –

My mother and my father had a rocky relationship. Christina’s song reminds me of my mother’s relationship with my father. My mother, just like Christina’s mother, left my father so that we could have a better future. I thank my mother every day for making that smart decision.

Predictable by Good Charlotte –

I read somewhere that this song was written by Benji about his relationship with his father. It reminds me of my relationship with my father. When I was younger, he would always make promises that he did not keep, and it use to affect me negatively. To me, he was very predictable, as I knew that he would always let me down.

You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban –

I’m Christian and I use this song as a worship song. This song is amazing, besides the lyrics, I love the instruments used in the song. With God, I always feel like I can rise up whenever I’m down. Nowadays, it’s a rare moment for me to feel down! Of course, no one can be free of problems, but all the problems I have seem miniscule compared to how I feel when I praise God and when I pray to Him. This song is beautiful and describes how I feel about Him perfectly!

Be My Escape by Relient K –

This is another song that reminds me of my relationship with God. Many times I’ve tried to do things on my own. I know that I can’t do things without Him. Many times I’ve felt locked up, and He was my only escape.

What You Waiting For? By Gwen Stefani –

What are you waiting for? That’s exactly what this song is about. All my life, I’ve hesitated to do many things. I have lost many opportunities, all because I didn’t take the chance. Not anymore, I’m not waiting anymore. No more excuses. I have to do what I have to do without hesitation. Gwen Stefani is amazing and this song is catchy yet it does make me think, what the heck am I waiting for? I have the world in the palm of my hand!

Savin’ Me by Nickelback –

This song reminds me of when I felt trapped. When I felt like I was all alone and I couldn’t escape from my problems. Like this song says, I felt like I was at the ledge of the 18th story. Sometimes I wanted to reach out to people, and have someone “save me”. Those feelings are long gone but I will always love this song because in my roughest moments, I could relate to it!

Lost Without You by Robin Thicke –

This song explains my relationship with my boyfriend. We have a connection so strong that no one can break. We only have eyes for each other. I don’t know what I would do without him. He helps keep me sane. In the roughest of moments, he’s there for me. We’re soul mates, we are one. To me, he’s perfect. To him, I’m perfect (so not the case!). What can I say? I love that man! 🙂
