~songs that remind you of home~
I don’t think I have songs that remind me of home but there are few that make me feel like I’m at home.
Lost Boy by Ruth.B
My, this is such a beautiful song and it’s been one of my favourites for well over a year now. It has a certain warmth and sense of belonging to it. And I love Peter Pan too.
Cry with you
~songs to make you cry and cry~
I don’t think I’ve been moved to tears but I have gotten to the point where if someone were to ask me something, I’d have burst into tears (which hasn’t happened thankfully).
Supermarket Flowers by Ed Sheeran
This song is immaculately beautiful and so heartfelt. It’s been a favourite for a good few years and is also a little personal. I love this song so much.
Before You Go by Lewis Capaldi
It is so emotive and the lyrics are so poignant, the song is so powerful and relevant, this is as close to perfection as art can go.
I think I’m in love
~your latest musical obsessions~
Somewhere in Ann Arbour by Anson Seabra
I love slow, sad or contemplative songs and Anson Seabra’s music is always so beautiful and the lyrics alone are almost poetic in nature. Somewhere in Ann Arbour has got such beauty to it.
exile by Taylor Swift
I never expected to love folklore but I did and exile is my favourite of the album. I love the melody and the lyrics and just about everything about it.
Afterglow by Ed Sheeran
This song just calms my heart down. It’s not the kind that I’d play on repeat but it’s the kind I can’t leave without listening to if it begins playing.
Writer in the dark
~favourite lyrics from songs~
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather So, before you go Was there something I could've said To make it all stop hurting? It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless -Before You Go by Lewis Capaldi
Dancing through a dream underneath the stars Laughing 'til the morning comes Everyone that leaves has a heavy heart Oh, Wonderland I love -Wonderland by Anson Seabra
Sign of the times
~song in the charts that you love~
One More Light by Linkin Park
This is yet another song that has profound lyrics and a powerful beat and gets you all thoughtful at the end.
Sing to me instead
Warning: terrible singing likely
~those songs you have to sing to~
Haha, I don’t sing at all. I used to love singing when I was younger but grew out of it at some point. I love music but don’t sing because then I find it difficult to forget how I sounded
and it’ll haunt me for life. I don’t feel like singing at all, no matter how amazing the song is, I just like listening to them in peace.
If this was a movie
~favourite songs from movies/tv/broadway~
A Million Dreams and Tightrope // The Greatest Showman
The movie was great and its soundtrack was even more brilliant! These are my two favourites of the whole album and they’re such lovely songs with great lyrics and catchy tunes.
More than a memory
~songs you have specific memories attached to~
Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran
I used to listen to this song on almost every car trip, it was the most played song on my playlist a few years back and I still listen to it occasionally, especially when I’m looking for inspiration to write or draw something that is cheery and just makes someone smile in general. It’s very nostalgic too.
~songs that make you feel calm~
"..Some people would say To accept their fate Well, if this is fate Then we'll find a way to cheat Cause, oh, we'll say a little prayer But, oh, if the answer isn't there You know you can call on me... -Call on Me by Starley
"...Oh I loathe, anyone sways me Back and forth, porcelain daisy I'm sure, puppeteers made me Tied, arms high Uncontrolled, strung up and crazy Take hold, patient constraining I loathe, how I've been tamed to Fear goodbyes..... -Tired and Awake by Oliver Riot
"...I just want to show them that I can make it on my own I want to go up up and away Up, up and away Ninety-seven more days until I'm living out in the worlds If it's true what they say then I'll turn my problems into pearls.." -Up up and away by Chance Peña
I wasn’t expecting that
~songs you didn’t expect to love, but you do~
Diamonds by Sam Smith
My friend Srisha @ Sky and Soil shared this song and I loved it! I didn’t really like Sam Smith’s music in general except for a few favourites till then but I’m growing to love most of his songs now.
exile by Taylor Swift
I wasn’t a huge fan of Taylor Swift until folklore happened and I surprised myself by loving almost all the songs on that album. I loved the slow, folklore-y vibes it gave off. I was a tad disappointed when I realised there was no song named folklore but evermore made up for that.
Kings and Queens by Ava Max
I don’t really like loud songs where the chorus is very loud and there are a lot of instruments, especially drums in the background. I don’t like much of Ava Max’s music either but I loved the subject of Kings and Queens and it is very catchy too.
~name the albums you couldn’t live without~
Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent by Lewis Capaldi
Before you Go
Someone You Loved
folklore by Taylor Swift
this is me trying
Divide by Ed Sheeran
Hearts Don’t Break Around Here
Castle on the Hill
Always remember us this way
~songs that remind you of your childhood~
What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction
I’ve never been a fan of One Direction. I was in the third grade or so when I first listened to this song. It seemed like schools and stores and even radios were all obsessed with this song for a while, I’d hear it everywhere I went.
Hall of Fame by The Script
Again, this was a song that I’d widely hear in a lot of places and I grew to like it eventually. It’s not the kind of favourite I’d play on repeat but I sometimes find myself searching for it on Spotify.
