Fifteen songs I think I like

I’ve never been that into music. My knowledge about songs, old and new, is pretty limited. I remember in fourth grade for the girls’ dance unit in P.E., Shake It Off came on and everybody around me screamed, and I had no idea what was going on. I just don’t really listen to music-except for 90.9, this Christian radio station I’ve been listening to for years. I can sing along to basically every single song that comes on. It weirds me out in a good way.

Last year, I did start listening to music more when I joined Jonathan’s sister’s family Spotify plan, but it realized I was lying because I put in the wrong address and kicked me off. That ended me listening to music outside of the car. Then, over Christmas, I tried again using a different email address, and this time, I completely hacked the system and put in their address. And it worked! I’ve been listening to music more often and trying to find artists and songs I like.

It’s been kind of hard. I think I know what I’m looking for:
I don’t like angsty music.
I like songs on the pop-ier side of the spectrum.
I don’t like rap.
I don’t really like the country voice sound.
The lyrics matter as much as the sound.
I don’t like when there’s too much drum and stuff. I like when the voice and the music is clear.
But I don’t know where to look for it. What I’ve been doing is going through a list I’ve compiled of songs and musicians that were recommended from either friends or blogs. They’ve been somewhat shots in the dark, but here are fifteen songs I think I like. I say I think because some of these I’ve only listened to once or twice. I don’t know, maybe I’ll change my mind after listening to them again? We’ll see. But as of right now, these songs are all on my one and only Spotify playlist called Finding That Sound.

  1. I’m surprised you do not listen to music that much! Music is such a huge part of my life, and I never – ever – leave the house without my earphones. I am constantly listening to something and for 2019, I’ve been having different playlists for each month. I’m already looking forward to my March one, and I’m sure I’ll be adding some of the ones you’ve recommended in this post.
    I love how you added some major throwbacks, like Year 3000 by Jonas Brothers and What Makes You Beautiful, by 1D. By the way, have you seen that Jonas Brothers are making a comeback? I’m thrilled already. They were my favorite band growing up. Later, it was 1D, but I don’t think we’ll be having a reunion from them any time soon.
    I love Walk The Moon’s first album as well. They’ve became very popular ever since Shut Up and Dance, but their first ever tracks are the true gems in my opinion. I Want, I Want is my favorite EP by them – sadly, it’s not available on Spotify, but I still recommend checking it out on YouTube, because it’s a super different experience from any other pop song you’ll listen to.
    My favorite Ed Sheeran song is Kiss Me, from his first album. I highly recommend it if you’ve never listened to it! As far as Taylor Swift, I love pretty much everything by her.
    I hope you continue to share more of your music experiences with us. I’m always down to listening to new songs!

    1. I know, I think a lot of people agree with you on that! I tend to always have my earbuds on hand too, but usually they’re so I can listen to podcasts ;)). Ohh, that’s so cool about your monthly playlists! I love how they’re like memory boxes that you can come back and visit in the future. Tell me what songs make it onto your March playlist!
      Haha yes, they’re throwbacks in music history, but new to me. I haven’t, but I did see on some people’s stories mentions of their new song Sucker? A 1D reunion would make so many people happy I think.
      Oh okay, thanks for telling me that! Hm, I wonder why it’s not on Youtube. Ohh, your description of it sounds intriguing.
      I think I’ve listened to it, but I listened to a bunch of his songs in a row, so they’re a bit swirled together. That’s interesting that you like most of Taylor Swift! Usually I hear people say they like old Taylor more.
      Thank you so much!! This is the first time I’ve talked about music on the blog, so that is very nice to hear. :))

      1. Monthly playlists really feel like a memory box, which is why I’m finally doing them. When I listen again to songs I used to listen back in 2014, I feel like I’m transported back to that time. It’s fascinating and one of the main reasons why I am listening to something 24/7 – is kinda like having your own life’s soundtrack.
        Yes, Sucker! It’s such a great song! I don’t know if it will be your style, though.
        Hope you listen to some more amazing songs in March! ☺️

        1. Okay, I think I need to try making monthly playlists sometime. After I start listening to more music though, right now I don’t think I do enough to make them.
          Wow, you were completely right, it wasn’t really my style.
          Thank you, and you too!! :))

          1. Oh, and I wanted to let you know that I’ve added Saturday Sun, Love & War in Your Twenties and All We Ever Knew to my playlist and I’m in love with all of them! Thanks for the recommendations, truly! 💛

    1. The words and melody for that song are pretty catchy. Funny story-my friend realized that the tune of broken is the exact same except in a different key as the tune of a different song-it might’ve been Lady Gaga? Oh, cool! I need it to be quiet when I work, but a lot of my friends need music. What soundtracks do you like?


        1. Oh, I didn’t know that! Actually I feel like somewhere in me vaguely knew Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift did a song together before, but I haven’t listened to it-I will soon, it’s on my Spotify queue right now. :)) (Queue is an unusual spelled word.) Okay, thank you!!
