5 Awesome Songs


Day 29 | five songs that mean something to you

Sometimes I'm not sure what kind of music I like. My running playlist is the craziest collection of songs I've ever seen. Where else do you see Lady Gaga next to Tim McGraw next to Chris Tomlin next to Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana?

No matter what, though, I always always love me some country music. Even before I moved to Oklahoma. Anyway, the point is, I love music, mostly of all genres with the exception of techno. #sorrynotsorry

But when all is said and done, here are 5 songs that make me think, bring me back, or just make me smile. Not my favorite songs ever, necessarily, but ones that mean a lot to me.

Come to Jesus
By Chris Rice

I heard the most beautiful rendition of this song at Jordan's grandpa's funeral.
I can't listen to this song without tearing up.
Standing around his hospital bed as he passed away is something I will never forget.

Love Your Love the Most 
By Eric Chruch

The song we danced to at our wedding

Just to See You Smile
By Tim McGraw

My favorite song ever.
I don't know why. I just love it.

Starry Night
By Chris August

"I'm giving my life to the only Son
Who was and is and yet to come
Let the praises ring
'Cause He is everything"

My favorite song on my running playlist. 

Somebody Told Me
By The Killers

I cannot ever again listen to The Killers without it bringing me back to my college days.
My friends and I (the same ones I was on girls' weekend with) played this CD all the time.
Good memories.

Do you have any special songs that mean a lot to you?

Awesome list, Amanda! When I saw this prompt I couldn't wait to see what you'd choose. I love these songs, too! I love picturing you and Jordan dancing to Love Your Love the Most. So sweeeeet. It's weird, but I kind of forgot about the Chris Rice song. I LOVE it. Thanks for re-introducing it back into my life. And seriously, can anything by The Killers please just be classified as a classic by now? ;)

Just To See You Smile. I was just thinking this SAME thing the other day. That it will be one of those country songs that lasts and lasts. Just transcends times.

I LOVE Eric Church- and that song in particular.....um....ah-mazing!!
It may be cheesy but "We are Young" (Fun) is my song with my brother & sister. On our last night together before he moved away for college, that song came on the radio as we drove home from an evening of pancakes and card games at the 24-hour diner. Every time I hear it, I think of the three of us and all the wonderful, amazing memories we have together!! Gettin' me teared up right now, just thinking about it!! :)
