I mean, if I am feeling down, music is one source to remind me there is no reason, or maybe there is but that is not worth it to feel down. And there are loads of songs out there I will never get tired of listening to. And songs which mark precious times of my life.
When I saw this idea over at Bevchens place I immediately thought, that I will need to make one post like this too, and here we go...
- The Calling - Wherever you will go (probably my all time favorite, I am sure I am still going to like it when I am over 80, living in a home for elderly and have my own teeth no more ;-))
- All Saints - Pure shores ( LOVE it. Love the lyrics. I also love the movie it features. All DiCaprio movies in fact. He is genius)
- Take That - Never forget
- Fedde Le Grand - Put your hands up for Detroit (OK. I coincidentally clicked back to see the video. Maybe I shouldn't have.The song is cool though.)
- Ace of Base - All that she wants (That was on my first CD EVER. Yes. My first album was 'Happy Nation'; and I sang this song with a friend on a dictaphone tape which accidentally played during English class at uni. The tape had the wrong side... FAIL. I also liked the song.)
- Billy Talent - Fallen Leaves (No party without Billy Talent, really)
- Sunrise Avenue - Fairytale gone bad (I love his voice. He is hilarious, have you seen this one?)
- Him - Right here in my arms (even though I find that there are better versions of this song)
- Katie Melua - I cried for you
- Amy McDonald - Dancing in the dark (Although I also like the 80ies version of that song)
- The Killers - Human AND Mr Brightside.
- Nathalie Imbruglia - torn
- James Horner - A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics (A beautiful mind theme song)
- The Disco Boys - For You (THE party hymn of my student time. Makes me feel forever young)
- Yo-Yo Ma playing Ennio Morricone - Lady Caliph
- The cardigans - Lovefool
- The Kooks - She moves in her own way
- Hans Zimmer's piece 'run free' from the motion picture movie 'Spirit' of which I could not find any video... But this has been such a powerful song to me, and I used to put it in, just before important exams to collect myself and be ready.
OK. What does that say about me?!
Honestly, I don't know. Most songs seem to have accompanied me for a long time and I seem to love them as ever.
Well, some of the songs have a history, most don't and basically it is just a collection of songs I'd have on my soundtrack.
What would you have on yours?
PS: As in my country the record labels have protected their copy rights on youtube I could only link live // acoustic versions of the respective songs; some are really cool, with some I would have preferred to link up the original.
