Music is Life

Music is a part of everyone’s life. Maybe more for others than the rest. I, also, love music. It never fails to put me in a good mood whenever I hear one. Maybe my music knowledge or the genres that I have been listening to is not that broad but who cares? As long as it is a song/music that is special to you, it matters. I’m thinking of songs that are significant to me, but there are just so many that I can’t list them all here. There are songs that I listen to when I need to be strong, there are songs that reminds me of my friends and there are songs that I dedicate to my family. If I could pick just 3 in the moment, I would pick these songs and I’ll also include part of the lyrics that just hit me straight in the heart.

ALL TOO WELL by Taylor Swift

Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much,
And maybe this thing was a masterpiece ’til you tore it all up
Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well…

Taylor Swift is one of my music idols. I don’t care if other people bash her because they don’t like her voice, or they think she doesn’t deserve her success. I like her as a person and she is a one-of-a-kind songwriter. I like how she’s able to relate her feelings and translate it to this truthful and relatable lyrics. All Too Well is one of my favorite songs of Taylor and it is on repeat on my phone currently. I have once read an article about this song that says that it is once a 10-minute song, but since you cannot have a song that long in an album, it is compressed to 4 minutes. Honestly, I would like to put the whole lyrics here because it’s just a sad but beautifully written story.It doesn’t repeat verses and choruses and the melody just captures the emotions that Taylor is trying to convey to her listeners.

BRAVE by Sara Bareilles

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I like songs that tells someone to speak up and stand for who they truly are. It doesn’t matter if you think that what you’re about to say is irrelevant but the important thing is you said what you have to say and you gave people a chance to actually listen to you. It’s important for us to know that we have been gifted with beautiful, encouraging words and it is only appropriate to use it to empower yourself and other people.  Pleasing other people is a trait that cannot be removed from us, but sometimes it is a reason why we are afraid to lose control and express what we truly want to say. I also love the music video of this song, it’s fun yet it shows people to not be afraid to stand out.  I actually like many songs that has the same theme as this one, but this is one of the most recent I have so I thought of sharing it with you.

TURN TO YOU by Christina Aguilera

When I lose the will to win,
I just reach for you and
I can reach the sky again
I can do anything
‘Cause your love is so amazing,
‘Cause your love inspires me

This song is the oldest in this list based on the year it was released but it never gets old to me. Whenever I think of this song, I think of my parents. If you would ask me what song would I dedicate to my parents, this is it. Why? Because all the important things that I would want to say to them is in this song. It is perfectly written to make the person you’re singing it to feel special and loved. The lyrics struck me hard because of the fact that for the longest time, in my 23 years of living, my parents have been my rock. They are always there to guide me, support me in all my decisions in life and to just love me. I just couldn’t imagine life without them. They are my main inspirations and my role models. I love them very much.
