Phoenix – Lisztomania http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BJDNw7o6so

This song sparked the interest into much of the music I listen to today. I heard it on the radio, made a station on pandora and quickly found out a ton of other bands that I love. Lisztomania will always hold a special place in my heart.

The Strokes – Someday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knU9gRUWCno

The Strokes are my favorite band and Someday is one of my favorite songs of theirs. It makes me feel nostalgic about life and really want to enjoy the time I spend with my friends.

Frank Sinatra – New York, New York http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mwPWAmBp8E

This song is by one of the best performers in my mind, Frank Sinatra. Not only did he have a great music career, but he was also rumored to be in the mafia. This song speaks to me because it’s how I feel about being in the city.

Bryan Ferry – The ‘In’ Crowd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY60kPY49UQ

This song is a fairly new discover. I heard it on the DSW commercials, but it describes me so well, because I love shoes and I’m “in” with the “in” crowd. LOL. That lol is there because, that, is a joke.

Sam Cooke – A Change Is Gonna Come http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbO2_077ixs

This song brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. It brings hope to any situation that may be without any. Sam Cooke’s voice is so powerful, as are the lyrics.

Marvin Gaye – Mercy, Mercy Me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9BA6fFGMjI

This song also speaks to me because it brings to light the ecological issues that are present today. I believe in taking care of our planet to better our lives and the future.

The Beatles – Revolution http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrkwgTBrW78

I grew up on The Beatles, so I love anything they do. This song speaks to me because everyone is always complaining about the way things are today, including me. They want to start a revolution but it has to be done a certain way for things to actually change.

John Mayer – Daughters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZLbUIa7exE

This song speaks to me because it places an importance on the relationship between fathers and daughters. I love my dad so much and don’t know what I would do without him.

Julian Casablancas – 11th Dimension http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_h5DMHh5_M

This song is the single from Julian Casablancas’ solo album. The whole album is immensly inspirational to me, but this song stands out to me because it has such a good message, “forgive them even if they are not sorry”.

Albert Hammond Jr. – Cartoon Music For Superheroes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_2OHMcQMC8

This song helps me fall asleep. Albert Hammond Jr. says he wrote this lullaby as the first song for his album. I also love this entire album as well.
