Without music, I do not know where I would be. It for me is something I cannot live without for long. Quite happy- take my movies, but my music.. I’ll keep forever.
I believe I can fly (R. Kelly)- This song for me over the years has been one that I keep coming back to just to keep my self belief in check because without it YOU can’t dream. If I can see it, then I can do it, if I just believe it, there’s nothing to it!
Greatest love of all (Whitney Houston)- This song is one that for me inspires a lot of different emotions- pride, belonging, self love, self belief and being proud of your uniqueness.. I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadows (very long ago).
Where is the love? (Black Eyed Peas)- I never will forget my brother rapping this song and again its so true. It reiterates that the world needs to find love to find peace- individually and as a whole. Let your soul gravitate to the love y’all.
Time of your life (Green day)- This song for me reflects on life that we always learn and even if we don’t understand at the end of the day the lesson will be learnt and we will be better for it..so Take the photographs and still frames in your mind.. its something unpredictable but in the end its right I hope you had the time of your life.
Unwritten (Natasha Bedingfield)- Letting the past go and starting again.. tomorrow…always. Make life what YOU want it to be. I’m just beginning the pens in my hand ending unplanned..
What a wonderful world/Somewhere over the rainbow mix (Israel Kamakawiwo’ole)- Absolutely brilliant composition… find YOUR happiness and peace. Chase those dreams and appreciate what you have. And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
Earth Song (Michael Jackson)- amazing.. learning to appreciate and care for the world around us.. What have we done to the world…what about all the peace that you pledge your only son?
Will you be there? (Michael Jackson)- amazing.. this song is about asking for comfort, strength and love; a prayer…
Silence (Delirium feat. Sarah McLaughlin)- For me, this song is about finding peace within yourself and then finding the freedom.. Heaven holds a sense of wonder, and I wanted to believe that I get caught up, when the rage in me subsides..
Eye of the Tiger (Survivor)- This song is about focus, determination and survival. Inner strength. They stack the odds still we take to the street, for the kill with the skill to survive.
What songs do you consider to be your life anthems?
Take care and enjoy your journey,
