Day 30 – A Song That Reminds You of Yourself

Unpretty by TLC

Year Released: 1999

So this song is about trying to change oneself for someone or society’s standard of beauty. And really… it’s sad and just so wrong. I guess I see myself in this song because my whole life I’ve been told that I’d be prettier if I lost a few pounds or the classic “You’re beautiful but…” And honestly? It’s a nightmare I haven’t gotten away from. But it’s all up to me, right?

My outsides look cool
My insides are blue
Every time I think I’m through
It’s because of you
I’ve tried different ways but it’s all the same
At the end of the day I have myself to blame

Aaaand… it’s a wrap! I’ve done it! 30 straight days of blogging for this song challenge. As much as it stressed me out having to post every day, I loved doing this challenge as it made me do a little reflecting and a ton of reminiscing. 🙂 Most of my songs in the challenge are on the old side because for the life of me, I could never keep up with all the trendy and hip stuff in music. Nevertheless, I had fun sharing with you guys the songs that mean something to me! To all those who spent time to read my entries, thank you!!!

Day 29 – A Song That You Remember From Your Childhood

Fixing a Broken Heart by Indecent Obsession

Year Released: 1993 (?)

So this song may be a little heavy to be a childhood memory. There’s a story here. 🙂 I used to visit father’s hometown during summers as a kid. And there were days when I’d stay at grandparents’ house. Actually, I stayed there most of the time while my dad went to work. I had an older cousin who played a guitar and this was his favorite song to play on his guitar. I loved this song even though I had absolutely no idea what it meant. I was six or seven, I didn’t know anything about broken hearts let alone fixing it. Heck, I don’t even know how until now. 😀

You really know where to start
Fixing a broken heart
You really know what to do
Your emotional tools
Can cure any fool
Whose dreams have fallen apart
Fixing a broken heart

So I’m curious… what’s a song from your childhood? 🙂

Day 28 – A Song By An Artist With A Voice That You Love

Lost Boy by Ruth B.

Year Released: 2015

So Ruth B. is a recent addition to my list of singers whose voice I just looove and may or may not envy. 😀 Her voice just sounds so calm and soothing. Perfect for a cold night under a blank and just looking out the window and thinking about things like where to find happiness in this cruel, cruel world. Okay… I’ve gone too far. 🙂

Neverland is home to lost boys like me
And lost boys like me are free
Neverland is home to lost boys like me
And lost boys like me are free

Day 27 – A Song That’s Breaks Your Heart

Out of Reach by Gabrielle

Year Released: 1999

Out of reach, so far
I never had your heart
Out of reach
Couldn’t see
We were never
Meant to be

For someone whose heart breaks easily, it was tough to pick one for this prompt. I guess I’m just going ahead and picking the one I can relate to the most. Haha! 😀 Here are other choices though!

I’m Not The Only One – Sam Smith

I Can’t Make You Love Me – Bonnie Raitt

She Used To Be Mine – Sara Bareilles

Someone Like You – Adele

Day 26 – A Song That Makes You Want to Fall in Love

Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran

Year Released: 2014

Perhaps it’s Ed Sheeran’s voice or perhaps it’s the music video… but man, this song never fails to tug some strings in this single heart of mine. 🙂 I remember one perfect night when I was just casually watching music videos on YouTube and I watched this and I just started feeling empty and wondering if there’s even someone out there… Hahaha! Anyway, it got ugly. 😀

So, honey, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are

Hey, how about you, what song makes you want to fall in love? 🙂
