Songs & Reminders


As a musician, I have a song for almost every moment in my life. When I think of my wedding, I think of three songs in particular. When I think of other experiences, it seems like I always put a song to a particular time in my life. Some are funny, some are sad, and some are just...how it is, I guess. 

Counting Stars by One Republic: Throwing parties. This song wasn’t even out when I had a few parties at my house, but it makes me want to throw one. Just because it’s a fun song, and I love it. It makes me want to dance.

Come Away With Me by Norah Jones: Our wedding. The day. The dance. The night. Everything.

Royals by Lorde: Shower singing. Shower dancing. Every. Time.

The Love Club by Lorde: Dancing in front of the mirror pretending like I’m Lorde, myself. 

Lullabye by Billy Joel: My dad. We danced to this song at my wedding. It brings me to tears. Every time. 

Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men: Living in Virginia Beach. It was the typical “We’re going to the Ocean” song.

Can’t Help Falling in Love by Ingrid Michaelson: Trevor.

Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap: The song my best friend and I would jam to in high school at stop lights.

You and I by Ingrid Michaelson: Missy Weeks and Courtney Kearns. The best room mates I have ever had making me laugh constantly.

Kiss Quick by Matt Nathanson: Trevor. Trevor. Trevor.

Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band: Mexico with my mom.

The Time by The Black Eyed Peas: High school with Christy. Jamming in the Mustang. Daily.

Dream by Priscilla Ahn: Taking a drive on a rainy day with Ciara Long. Thinking about Life. Coming to the conclusion that we want to change our lives and become better people.

Tonight by FM Static: Being a foolish love-struck girl sophomore year in high school.


Do you have a song that reminds you of a particular instance in your life or a particular friend?

  4. I love memories from songs! Pretty much any song can take me back! Royals is one of my new favorites, and I think I can totally picture it as a shower dancing song!

  7. I had to do an immature giggle when I read Norah Jones for the wedding night. Scandalous ;)
