My Ultimate Playlist

I don't know why these songs get me like they do...but they do.

This list includes my current all-time favorite song: Come on Eileen.  That changing tempo and repetition of "Too-ra-loo-ra" have me jumping out of my seat no matter where I am.  Sometimes, though, it's best not to delve too deep into the meaning of these songs...especially with Come on Eileen.

These songs give me the feels.  Comment and let me know if any of these songs hit you in the gut too!!

Come on Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners

Quotable Lyrics:
These people round here
Wear beaten-down eyes sunk in smoke-dried faces
They're so resigned to what their fate is
But not us (no never)
No, not us (no never)
We are far too young and clever

Heroes - David Bowie
Quotable Lyrics:
I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

Second Hand Heart - Dwight Yoakam
Quotable Lyrics:
I said if you could count up memories but only keep the best
You might not see how good they were without the rest

Dime Store Cowgirl - Kacey Musgraves
Quotable Lyrics:
I'm happy with what I got, cause what I got is all I need
Just cause it don't cost a lot, don't cost a lot, don't mean it's cheap

The Taste of Ink - The Used
Quotable Lyrics:
And won't you think I'm pretty
When I'm standing top the bright lit city
And I'll take your hand and pick you up
And keep you there so you can see

Do You Believe in Magic? - The Lovin' Spoonful
Quotable Lyrics:
Do you believe in magic?
In a young girl's heart
How the music can free her
Whenever it starts

Laid - James
Quotable Lyrics:
I found you sleeping next to me, I thought I was alone
You're driving me crazy
When are you coming home?

24 Frames - Jason Isbell
Quotable Lyrics:
This is how you talk to her when no one else is listening
And this is how you help her when the muse goes missing
You vanish so she can go drowning in a dream again

Dammit - Blink 182
Quotable Lyrics:
And I'll smile
And you'll wave
We'll pretend
It's okay
The charade
It won't last
When he's gone
I won't come back

Under Pressure (Live) - My Chemical Romance & The Used
Quotable Lyrics:
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
