I have a very wide variety of music on my phone. I mean it ranges from Frank Sinatra to Billy Joel to Travis Scott to Luke Bryan…its all over the place. So I thought I would share my go to music playlist for the time being. Looking at my itunes playlists at the moment I can tell you I have way too many playlists with the same songs. But the one I click on most is Untitled #3.
The first song on this list is ‘Drift Away’ by Uncle Kracker…also the only song I have ever heard by him. It just has the most soothing tune and makes me wish I was on a beach somewhere with nothing to do.
“Oh, Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away…”
Next up comes from A$AP Rocky…’Everyday.’ I originally started listening to this song because it had Rod Stewart in it and I love his music. However, I have grown to really like the song over all.
“Everyday I spend my time
Drinking Wine, Feeling Fine
Waiting here to find the sign
That I can understand
Yes I Am…”
I then move onto Def Leppard’s ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me,’ a classic in both strip clubs and my car rides. It brings my energy up like no other song and sometimes I really need that.
” Pour some sugar on me
Ooh, In the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
I can’t get enough…”
We then switch genres crazily once again and move to ‘Goosebumps’ by Travis Scott. This one I can blame my boyfriend for. I didn’t like the song but he insisted on playing it every long car ride and now I like it a little too much…
“I get those goosebumps every time, yeah, you come around, yeah
You ease my mind, you make everything feel fine…”
Now onto a complete legend…….Elton John with ‘Crocodile Rock’!!! I love all of Elton John’s songs but this one is in my top three for sure. My other favorites by him that are not on this playlist are ‘Your Song’ and ‘Tiny Dancer,’ I will never get bored of his music.
“Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
When your feet just can’t keep still
I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will…”
Continuing with the legendary singers and song writers are three songs by Billy Joel. First one up is, of course, ‘Piano Man.’ This is the first song I ever heard by Billy Joel and I am beyond happy to listen to it non stop over 5 years later.
The last one by Billy Joel is my favorite..I even memorized all the words, which for this song is a lot…’We Didn’t Start the Fire.’ I am still not completely sure what the meaning of this song is but it doesn’t matter because it gets me motivated and happy to go for everything.
“We didn’t start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world’s been turning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it…”
Now let’s bring it back to Def Leppard with ‘Photograph’ and ‘Rock of Ages’…
I often listen to tons of songs that are not on this playlist but whenever I don’t want to sort through thousands of songs I click on this playlist and just let it go. I would love to hear your favorite songs and what your go to playlist is made of!
