Songs That Make Me Happy

Everyone has those songs that no matter what mood or time of day, could be on repeat for hours and never get boring. They always bring back specific memories, happy times, or sad times; a certain moment in time. If i’m having a bad or anxious day, these songs can make me feel immediately better. Everybody has them. These are some of mine:

Taylor Swift – Fifteen

There’s about 100 Taylor Swift songs I could have chosen, but I feel like this one is the one that created my love for her music. I remeber being 14 years old, counting down the months until I was 15 so I could properly ‘relate’ to this song, cause i’d finally be the age she’s singing about. I’m now 21 and counting down the months until i’m 2But in your life you’ll do things
Greater than dating the boy on the football team
But I didn’t know it at fifteen

But in your life you’ll do things
Greater than dating the boy on the football team
But I didn’t know it at fifteen

These lyrics have always been some of my favourites of hers. It reminds me of being young and caring too much about what everyone else thought about me – but who didn’t while they were young.

George ezra – hold my girl

This song is so special to me. Me and my boyfriend have claimed it as ‘our song’. The album it’s on was released around the time we started dating, and we both loved it. I listen to it when we’re apart and it always makes me cry.  We decided if we get married it’ll be our first dance song.

We’ll go and see the man on the moon
My girl we’ve got nothing to lose

Bryan adams – heaven

As a 21 year old, I have a strange love for Bryan Adams. Not many people my age are into his music. I grew up with my dad playing his albums on repeat, and I love it. His songs always remind me of my dad. Whenever I’m missing home I can put on his songs and pretend i’m back in the car.

Now our dreams are comin’ true
Through the good times and the bad
Yeah I’ll be standin’ there by you

What songs mean a lot to you?

In my early 20's, currently living away from home, studying at university. Suffering awfully with anxiety and depression, trying to find a way through that. Probably procrastinating.

One thought on “Songs That Make Me Happy”

  1. Bryan Adams’ “Heaven” was actually a song I despised for many years because it was intimately connected with something that hurt me deeply. But now I don’t feel that same emotional impact when I hear it and can almost enjoy it for what it really is. The Bryan Adams song that reminds me of my dad is “Everything I do, I do it for you”. I remember bawling to that song after his death when I was 12. It helped me express my grief.
