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?

The Vaccines – Combat Sports

Something that has always helped me with my mental health has been music. I just plug in my headphones and everything seems to be so much better. I love live gigs, which for someone who hates crowds can be quite tricky at times. Each week I want to share some of my favourite artists, albums, gigs and songs with you.

I had never really listened to The Vaccines before this album came out early 2018. I remeber listening to I Can’t Quit on the radio and instantly falling in love with it.

On whim I decided to listen to this album on a monday evening, I was probably procastinating my uni work. Two hours later I had convinced the boy I was dating to come with me to see them at Alexandra Palace in London, and we got tickets that night.

Alexandra Palace has to be the most beautiful music venue I’ve ever been to, it was an incredible gig, an amazing live band.

Even after having a little freak out because of the amount of people, and becomming grumpy, (for some reason when I get very anxious I can become very moody and take it out on those closest to me)  The boy who I was with, and dating, asked me to become his ‘official girlfriend’.

We’re still together and have tickets to see The Vaccines again next year.

Whenever I am feeling down, or missing him, I stick on this feel-good album and I am instantly taken to a happy place with happy memories.
