MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER WITH YOU

Music is a powerful medium. It moves us, it motivates us, and has  the power to elicit emotions and speak to us in ways simple words cannot.

This year has been a quite a rollercoaster– turbulent, exciting, terrifying, liberating, and unexpectedly brief.

So instead of talking about what happened during the year, I’d rather leave you with a playlist of songs.

The link at the bottom of the page, is a link to a playlist of songs I made from this entire academic year. From August to May– these are the songs that were the soundtrack for the last 7 to 8 months.

it’s a rather eclectic mix. Some songs’ lyrics have dictated my situation at that time WORD FOR WORD.

What’s funny is that i have placed them in chronological order (according to my memory of events). And the ironic thing is.. when i look at the list, the titles/lyrical content of the songs tell a story..

(but i have to confess it <i>might</i> be because i tried to organize it that way ;] )

Some songs are just songs that i only like because they remind me of the moment that accompanied them..

some songs are on the list because they were given to me by someone else..

some songs are on the list because i shared them with an individual or individuals..

some are on the list because they bring me back to the exact moment i heard it..

some songs are on the list because WE COULDNT. STOP. SINGING. THEM.

some are on the list because i can’t help but dance..

some songs are on the list because they remind me of people..

some songs are on the list because they remind me of a person..

SOME ARE ON THE LIST BECAUSE THEY’RE SO FUCKIN CATCHY..

ONE song is on the list because it was someone’s phone alarm (and it wouldn’t stop ringing)

some songs are on the list because they took the words right out of my mouth..

some are on the list because they’re painful to think about..

MOST are on the list because they make me happy..

But they’re all on the list because they have something significant to do with this year. alot of you will probably laugh because we shared memories with these song(s). sober, drunk, in the car during a long drive, in the car during a short drive, DTF, more fire, in my car, in YOUR car, at my house, on the radio, on someone’s living room floor because there was a fire that caused all the freeways to shut down so we had nothing else to do but drink..

HAHAHA

Because when your life has music, it just makes it THAT much better. And when you share it with good company (even if you just met them), you can’t help but be uplifted. it’s like a drug that has all the benefits and none of the cons. And thanks to the gift of music, we can relive these memories again and again for that brief 4 minutes..

This playlist is dedicated to the people who made it all possible. A tribute to its triumphs, tribulations, and its countless lessons learned.

These songs will forever embedded in my mind as the songs that made my year what it was..

which was

amazing

enjoy

p.s.
i deliberately chose not to tag anyone in this note because you should know who you are, and how much of an impact you’ve made for me on this year. this playlist is PROOF. and if you don’t then FAIL. FAIL. FAILFAILFAIL.
