Let the Music Take Control

After silence,
that which comes nearest to expressing
the inexpressible is music. – Aldous Huxley

Music has always been a great place to escape no matter what kind of mood I’m in. When you think about it, there is just about a song for every situation you run into while you go through life- happiness, heartache, anger, sadness, inspiration, rage, and so on. Music has definitely helped me get through hard times, sad times, fun times, and crazy times. So today I dedicate this post to songs that make me feel good. Hope you’ve all had a wonderful week full of happiness, joy, and most of all love.

YOUNG THE GIANT- Islands
His voice is like butter…and this acoustic version of this song on the beach makes it even more beautiful.

GROUPLOVE- Tongue Tied
This is the song that makes me want to just jump up and down and dance to where ever I may be 🙂

KITO FEAT. REIJA LEE- Sweet Talk
When this tune comes on while I’m at the gym, I definitely get into a groove. 

THE BLACK KEYS- Gold on the Ceiling
I’ve loved The Black Keys for a long time. This song triggers something in me- not sure what it is but I FEEL IT!

DEVOTCHKA- The Winner Is
This song is from the movie Little Miss Sunshine- which is a fantastic movie with a great message. It’s all instrumental- which is a nice change once in a while in my music library. 

ELLIE GOULDING- Your Song
Her cover of this classic song is unique and beautiful. Her voice is so different from anything I’ve ever heard..

JUST JACK- Starz In Their Eyes
Thought I’d leave you with this final song- it’s a toe tapper that I get excited when it comes on when I’m on a good high while working out. There’s something about English “rappers” that I like way better than American ones. 

What’s the top song in your life right now??

  1. I know The Black Keys, Just Jack, Ellie Goulding and of course, Young The Giant. The rest will be next fillers in my CD wallet. 😀 Thanks for the awesome music recommendations!

  2. I’ll have to have a listen since I pretty much like all music genres. The only ones I really can’t stand are hip hop and rap, mainly because of the language in the so-called lyrics.
