Blog Every Day in May - Five Songs

For day 29 of the Blog Every Day in May Link Up, we're supposed to list five songs that speak to us or bring back memories.  Here are mine:

(1)  Normal Like You - Everclear
I had the lyrics to this song on my wall when I was in highschool; going through my "no one understands me, I'm weird and will never be happy" phase.  I loved Everclear and how sad the singer's voice always sounded.  Dear Lord, my love of this song outs me as such a child of the 90's...

(2)  On My Own - Les Miserables
I was raised in a family that loved musicals and I feel so lucky to have been able to see Les Mis on stage along with Phantom, Wicked, and many more.  If there ever was a dream I didn't pursue that I will force upon my future daughter, it's to sing on stage.  Especially this song.  This song is my all-time favorite.  I've sung it for choir and voice class before and oh how I wish I could belt it as it's meant to be.

(3)  No One's Gonna Love You - Band of Horses
Mike and I never really had a song, but when we were getting ready for the wedding, this is the one song he requested for the playlist.  Ever since then, in my mind at least, it's been our song.  And every time it comes on, I can remember the first time he played it for me and the feeling I got when he asked me to have it play at the wedding.

(4)  Sideways - Citizen Cope
This one brings back a memory I'm going to keep to myself.  Love this song though, makes me tear up every time it comes on.

(5)  Marry You - Bruno Mars
Mike and I walked down the aisle to this song after saying "I Do" and now every time it comes on the radio, I get a huge, goofy grin on my face.  Happy happy memories.


  1. Yay I love Lea Salonga, and I'm loving the fact that she's one of the coaches on this year's The Voice here in PH :)

    PS: You've got a pretty blog, I must say. Cheers for the color pink. :)

    1. Thanks so much hun! I love her too. I always choose her when talking about that song...I can't bring myself to watch this song from the movie. I'm so scared they ruined it!

  2. I love today's topic, because going through all of the blogs, I've been able to find songs I loved so long ago but forgot all about. Sideways is one of those songs. I used to BLAST this song when my friend and I drove to school back when the song came out. I love the TV show One Tree Hill - it has the best soundtrack and that's how I discovered this song!


    1. It's soooo good! I can't wait to read all the other posts and find some good song recs!
