Music has always been a huge part of my life. Growing up I often tuned out everything around me in my home with music. It has a special place in my heart and I now use it as a way to reflect on my life, or really to get me through just about anything.
I have a few songs in my life that no matter where I am or what the song is playing on, I get emotional. Here’s a few examples.
1. Perfect by Ed Sheeran
2. Angel by Sarah Mclachlan
3. Let it be by the Beatles
Do you have any songs that are sentimental or emotional for you always?
Every day when I get to work, I put on Spotify and I just listen to all of my favorite songs. Music holds such a big place in my heart and I wouldn’t be able to get through my days without it!
Sometimes it’s so hard for me to listen to certain songs because they make me SO emotional. But then I have days where all I really need is a good cry.
Some of my favorites are:
Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing- Aerosmith
Family Portrait- P!nk
Never Alone- Lady Antebellum
There are so many memories and feelings behind those songs and they make me cry almost every time!
I definitely agree that music helps me cope with so much when I can just tune everything else out and just focus on the lyrics. I think for me the top songs right now that have such an emotional attachments to them would be:
See you again- By Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth
Like i’m gonna Lose you- Meghan Trainor and John Legend
To me these songs mean so much more than just music notes put together by an artist. To me, they symbolize hurt, pain, a process of working through through that hurt, remembering loved ones, and keeping hope alive.
One song I’ve been listening to that actually makes me tear up is Give It Time by Reverie. She’s an underground rapper so you may not know who she is but this song really gets me emotional.
