Day 24 - Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs.
Hmm, who to make a playlist for? I did one for my husband a while back, You can read that one here if you want. Forgive me, I wasn't so good at creating links back then. I've warned you all about my technological incompetence before....
I've written about quite a few other songs that remind me of other people.
Today, though I am going to make a list dedicated to someone I haven't even seen in over a decade. Someone that I reconnected with online, and am probably closer to now than I ever was back when we saw each other all the time.
Someone who will completely appreciate this.
Merry Christmas, G.
Hallelujah, K.D. Lang- quite possibly the most amazing live version of any song I've ever heard, from the Olympics. This one makes me cry every.single.time.
Put Your Records On, Corinne Bailey Rae - let your hair down.
Umbrella, Rhianna - you can stand under mine.
Move Along, All American Rejects - enough said.
Learning to Fly, Tom Petty - aren't we all?
The Dog Days Are Over, Florence + The Machine - man, I hope so.
Raise Your Glass, Pink - we can always party on our own.
Fragile, Sting - one of the most beautiful songs ever written about humanity.
Return to Innocence, Enigma - we could all hope, right?
Not Afraid, Eminem - when you gotta do what you gotta do.
What Goes Around, Justin Timberlake - because sometimes karma is fun to witness. :)
In My Daughter's Eyes, Martina McBride - not sure you listen to Country at all, but this is what I imagine your relationship is with your baby girl.
Just Breathe, Anna Nalick - because sometimes that's all you can do.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - it just has to rain first.
