In honor of the Grammy Awards, which aired last night, I thought it would be fun to share with you all some of the songs that my best girlfriends from home and I are motivated by or, more specifically, the songs that bring a smile to our faces when we are down. These girls and I have spent SO many hours just driving around aimlessly, listening to music, and enjoying one another’s company, that it only makes sense that over the years we’ve found songs that just make us happy.
Here are a few of the jams, which when I hear, bring me back to the memorable times (especially the summer nights) I spent with these lovely ladies:
For some ah-maz-ing reason, which I don’t know, Ice Cube’s, “Today Was A Good Day” is one of our go to jukebox choices.
“Brandy” by Looking Glass reminds us of home.
We love to dance to BTN’s cover of the Tom Petty classic “American Girl.”
“These are the Days” by 10,000 Maniacs is another of our jukebox staples.
So here are the songs that my girls each chose on their own. You’ll have to ask them why they picked them, but I promise it’ll be worthwhile 😉
“My Way” by Frank Sinatra
“Heart Like Mine” by Miranda Lambert
“Firework” by Katy Perry
“Heart of Gold” – Neil Young
“Crocodile Rock” by Elton John
“You’re the One that I Want” from Grease.
“Rain King” by the Counting Crows
“Wavelength” by Van Morrison
“Love on Top” by Beyonce.
“Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” by U2
“Yellow” by Coldplay
“Baby Don’t Cry”by 2Pac
“Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison
“This Magic Moment” by the Drifters
I know, I know, this is QUITE the eclectic collection of songs, but you know what… to each is own and whatever makes you happy makes you happy. I think it’s pretty awesome how these songs motivate us and that we have such great memories tied to our choices. So, if you are looking for a song to boost your spirits try listening to one of our suggestions or try and come up with your own!
