Ten Things | Songs I Will Love Forever

Hello Friends!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love music!  I love to sing, and dance!!  Most importantly, I love to listen and absorb the meaning behind the songs.  Sometimes you find pieces of music that speak to your heart and soul and it doesn't matter how much time goes by, these songs still speak to you.  These are some of my "forever" loves!  

1 - Let It Go/Vivaldi's Winter - The Piano Guys

Love love love this song!! I love the Piano Guy's version because it really plucks at my heartstrings. I can literally listen to this song on repeat for hours. It is one of my all time favorite song's anyway, but this version is the best by far! Obviously I don't have enough fun when I play the piano because these guys make it look too easy!! Sit back and enjoy watching them play as much as listening to them!

2 - Blown Away - Carrie Underwood

My all time favorite song!  I have loved this song since I first heard it on the radio a few summers ago, and I still love it!  Every time it looks like rain, I blast this song from my radio.  Every time I want to roll the windows down and feel the breeze, I blast this song!  I literally sing this all the time!  Love. 

3 - Wagon Wheel - Old Crow Medicine Show

I don't know if it is because I am from North Carolina, or because I currently live in Raleigh, but I love this song.  I first heard it years ago at camp in the mountains of Allegheny County.  It involved a guitar and a campfire, and now whenever I heard it, it takes me back!  I love music that can transport us to those simple moments in time! 

4 - Anytime - Kelly Clarkson

This is telling my age in a way.  I bought Kelly Clarkson's first CD, Thankful, and I played the snot out of it!  I loved this song from the first few notes!  It is a love that has only grown, and I feel like it is such an early 2000s song!  Beautiful!

5 - Used - Ashley Monroe

If you haven't discover Ashley Monroe, your life isn't complete yet.  I love her!  I also feel and understand this song!  I listened to it, and it spoke because sometimes I think about how "used" I was before I met Joshua.  Your heart gets "used" when you go through the bad relationships to get to the one that is right.  That is part of what speaks to me about this song!

6 - Children Will Listen - Barbra Streisand

Another old favorite!  My mom has the piece as sheet music for piano, and I love to play and sing it!  My mom loves Barbra Streisand!  She would listen to the cassette tapes (that is how old I am) in the car when I was younger and we would sing loud and proud!  This one is just a favorite of mine because it is so true!  Children seem to hear everything we say, even when we don't mean for them to!  Just remember, children are always listening!

7 - We've Only Just Begun - The Carpenters

This is such a sweet song!  It is about just starting out, and that is where Joshua and I are.  We have only just begun, even if it feels like we have been together forever!  We are just taking the first steps in our lives together, and this song makes me happy about it!

8 - A Woman Needs - Jessica Harp

I love Jessica Harp!  I was super disappointed when she decided to just stick to songwriting, because I love her music!  This song makes me want to run and dance and sing at the top of my lungs!  It is about being wild, and I like to think that I am a little wild and unpredictable (Joshua says I am not, but whatever)!!  I like to this that I have this free spirit, and this songs makes me feel it!

9 - It's Your Love - Tim McGraw

This is mine and Joshua's song!  We sing it all the time, and I love to hear him sing it to me!  No surprise, but this will be the first song we dance to at the wedding!  It is our song!!  That is why I love it; because I love Joshua!

10 - Boondocks - Little Big Town

Remember where you came from.  That is what this song says to me.  A lot of time in life, we leave what we grew up with, and we are so ready to be away!  But you are never away!  Where your from is part of who you are, and when you embrace that, you succeed!  Joshua and I came from a super small town (it's actually only a community), and we embrace it!  We talk about the "redneck" things we grew up doing, and still do to this day, but the knowledge we gained from our small town is priceless!  Embrace the boondocks!

What songs could you listen to forever?
Like I said, let me know!
