What would life be without music? I hate to think of it actually. We seem to always have music playing around here. I love uplifting, inspiring music and songs with good lyrics and messages. I especially love when those messages are channeled through amazingly gifted musicians!
If you’ve read my blog for a while, you probably already know that I love Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Coldplay, Ben Howard and Ben Harper. I never really get sick of them ever. I noticed that I’ve always enjoy male singers more than female singers. For some reason I just find female singers to be annoying to listen to for more than a few songs. A lot of the female music is also very tied to emotions too, so maybe that is why. I don’t really care to get caught up in that realm. I always have my head in the clouds and am most of the time thinking and contemplating deeper things, so I gravitate towards songs with deeper messages. It’s as though they speak a message that totally resonates with me.
I’ve never really been a typical girl or a typical woman. I never really did too many girly things and even nowadays I prefer to just be comfortable than to put on a bunch of make-up, dress up and worry what people think of me. Just kicking back in my yoga pants with my hair pulled back, listening to my favorite artists as I clean, sew, relax or do yoga is enough to make my day.
Here are some songs that I have been loving these days.
John Mayer – Stop This Train
Coldplay – Everything’s Not Lost
Ben Harper – She’s Only Happy In The Sun
Jason Mraz – The World As I See It/93 Million Miles/I Won’t Give Up Live
Hootie and The Blowfish – Hold My Hand
Eddie Vedder – Hard Sun
Coldplay – The Scientist
John Mayer – Gravity (one of my all time favorite songs)
What have you been enjoying listening to these days? What musicians do you love? If I don’t find more good music, then I might just be one of those old people who are still stuck loving music from way back when and will be quite an embarrassment to my kids. I know that a lot of these songs are pretty old already, but they are still my favorites.
Share your love of good music below! 🙂
I love music. I don’t listen to nearly as much as I used to or as I should. Wen I do remember to turn on music I love it so much! I’m one of those old fogies, though, I’m so out of tune with the world right now that I don’t know ANY new music. I’ll have to listen to your selections here later. Sadly, some of my favorites are ones that my mom likes LOL. Like the Beatles, Cat Stevens, Seals & Crofts. There are many others, but again, nothing really new. And instrumentals are always nice for background. We listen to a lot of Red Grammar kids music, I loved him as a kid and still do. Catchy tunes and excellent messages in his songs.
Thanks for sharing! We love such a variety, but these are some of my all-time favorites. Music can color your day so much, depending on what you choose. 🙂
