Song Dump

“Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.”
Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

In a mixture of panic that 1) I haven’t posted anything this month and 2) all my playlists on Grooveshark were gone, I decided to start braindumping songs that I somewhat associated with high school/middle school.

Some songs are tied to a specific person, some are tied to a specific event, some are tied to a specific time. Some are tied to blog posts, some are tied to specific homework assignments.

Some I found in the middle of the night when searching for a song to match my mood, some were recommendations from friends, some I overheard playing in the background during a Google Hangout (ok it’s just one) , some were background songs to videos on Youtube that I couldn’t stop playing, some are songs that I’ve heard in stores.

Some are tied to my middle school crushes, some are tied to people I’ve talked to once, some are songs that I unashamedly have sang with friends. Some are late night songs, some are for weird bratty moods, some just have unfortunate associations. Some songs that I used to listen to nonstop didn’t make it, while others that I listened to briefly did.

When making this list, I had two rules:

  1. No taking songs off once I typed them
  2. No rearranging songs

Thus there is no order to these songs, and some songs I regret putting on here more than others. The following is a combination of my memory, YouTube likes + suggestions, Pandora likes, old tweets, and old blog posts to compile this list. (Grooveshark would have been nice had it not gotten shut down.)
