52 Lists: Week 21 - List Your Favorite Songs

Uh..Me circa 2006 or 2007??
Old Myspace profile pic and yes that's a guitar hero guitar and angel wings and yeah I have no idea why I was so mad & yes I'm in my old roomate's bathroom! She had the best lighting. =P

Today I'm back on the wagon for MOOREASEAL's 52 List Project and by far this will be my favorite list. List your Favorite Songs. This is like asking me my favorite movie. I get anxious because I feel bad if I leave something out that literally changed my life. Without music I don't know how I would've gotten through some really rough days in college, some dreary days in the office, and definitely some breakups. I am utterly grateful in more ways than I can describe. 

 Someone's favorite songs are gateways to their inner souls I think. When your head involuntarily nods to the beat or when your that place over your heart cinches because the lyrics tugged on your heartstrings...you can't put up a mask and hide your love for it. It's there and it can let someone know the real you. 

Hmm...What are my favorites...

  16. You've got a nice mix of tunes, here! I like that you listen to older things like Etta James and The Mamas & The Papas. I'm definitely into that stuff, too, though I also listen to Neil Young and Kansas and that kind of thing. My favorite songs, of course, change over time. I typically am attached to one song--or to a band or to an album--and listen and listen and listen and listen, over and over and over. Right now, I'm on a Boy & Bear and Kodaline kick. Before that? The Mowgli's. My favorite bands are Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, The Head and The Heart, Of Monsters and Men, Coldplay, and Muse, but there are dozens of others mixed in there. One of my favorite songs of all time, though, is "Clocks" by Coldplay. My favorite Muse song is "Map of the Problematique."
