The Soundtrack

I know what you’re thinking, no I didn’t put my media player on shuffle to answer a list of questions about my life. I have come to realize that I relate a lot of life to music. It seems to me for every moment in life there is a song written about it. Sure, sometimes the song doesn’t match perfectly but it does prove that somewhere out there someone had a similar thought, idea, or experience.

So with out any further ado here is the (current) soundtrack of my life:

  1. Tear Me Down from Hedwig and the Angry Inch
    I have fallen in love with Hedwig and the Angry Inch and this upbeat song seems to be the one which speaks to me the most.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  2. Work by Jars of Clay – Good Monsters
    This song reminds me that living is hard and requires work. It also reminds me to never give up.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  3. Chem 6a by Switchfoot – The Legend of Chin
    It’s all wrong, but it’s alright” these are the words that constantly resonate in my head as I think about the life I live. How much of life do we put off and not care.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  4. Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid
    Just as Ariel longed to be part of the human race I feel that I long to part of the world as well.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  5. Gloria by Brave Saint Saturn – So Far From Home
    I often feel that in my Spiritual walk that I need a reminder that God is truly there. This song reminds me that God is more than words but is truly there.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  6. Apathetic Way To Be by Relient K – Apathetic EP
    Apathy may be one of, if not my biggest, pet-peeves, at times it might be okay but I don’t like the idea of brushing off life with this not caring attitude.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  7. Lost? by Coldplay – Viva La Vida
    This number, reminds me that just because I’m losing doesn’t make me a loser, and that just because I’m hurting it doesn’t mean I’m hurt.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  8. Born A Girl by Manic Street Preachers – This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours
    Need I explain? I heard this song and it instantly spoke to me. I would be curious about the story behind why Manic Street Preachers chose to write this song and what it means to them.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  9. Hello Seattle by Owl City – Ocean Eyes
    As soon as I moved to Seattle I was in love with it. Why yes, I know this song is over played, don’t judge.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  10. Mirrors & Smoke by Jars of Clay – Good Monsters
    Love requires action, love is a risk, love can cause pain. These are the themes I see in this song. We need to learn that love is an important aspect of living.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
  11. Love is All I Need by Kristian Leontiou – Some Day Soon
    Love isn’t ALL we need but it is definitely a major part of what we need. This song is so beautiful it makes me smile.
    (Listen | Lyrics)
