Daily Prompt: “Write about the three most important songs in your life- what do they mean to you?”
When it comes to my favorite songs, I choose them based on their lyrics mostly. Sometimes I do love songs for their upbeat music, but most of the time it is the message that the artist has brought demonstrated with his lyrics; it must be the writing in me.
The first song of my life is I Won’t Give Up By Jason Mraz. I love the lyrics and the music of this song, and better yet I CAN sing! The lyrics remind me to never give up in life. Not to give up on myself, my friends, and (since the song is based on it) my relationship. In fact it is “our song.” When I hear the lyrics, they tell me that I can do this, that my girlfriend and I can make it through anything as long as we try because “God knows were worth it.” So it pushes me to keep fighting for her, for us, no matter what we go through.
My second song of my life is Looks So Perfect by Five Seconds of Summer. The reason this song has made it to my list is due to it’s music, contrary to what I previously stated about my choices. This song is just fun to sing. It lets me let go of life and enjoy the short amount of time that the song plays on the radio, in fact I’m pretty sure that’s what the song is about. Letting loose when your down, and not caring what other people think. So the song DOES contain lyrical value to me as well.
My final song of my life is Who You Are by Unspoken. This song is very important to me with my faith. It helps me remember that no matter how far I fall from God, I can get back to where I was, and be who I was created to be. It tells me that if I starting slipping in my religion, I could never fall too hard, so fast, so far, that I can’t get back onto the right path again. That I still have my shot at my perfect place (as I explained in my previous blog). This song will not let me forget that I have a forgiving God, who loves me and wants me there with Him. I AM STILL WELCOME! Plus it’s challenging to sing; DID I MENTION I LOVE TO SING?
