Here are some of my favorite songs to listen to.
Living on a Prayer, Bon Jovi – Bon Jovi was my first boyfriend. I was 8. We are still together after all these years.
Stagger Lee, Lloyd Price – Anytime this song comes on and I am with my dad and sister a sing along usually follows.
Positively 4th Street, Bob Dylan – If you have ever had a toxic friend and the relationship ended, you can probably relate to this song.
Into the Mystic, Van Morrison – It just rocks my gypsy soul.
She Moves in Her Own Way, The Kooks
The Best, Tina Turner – This song will always remind me of my sister . . "Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead" AND it;'s Tina!
Valerie, Mark Ronson - This song always gets me moving my shoulders. I wonder if Amy Whinehouse realized just how amazing her voice was.
Fairytale of New York, The Pogues – I am not a Christmas Caroly type of person, so it's only fitting that this would be my favorite Christmas song. "I could have been someone. Well, so could anyone."
Tessie, Dropkick Murphys – It's sacrilegious to be from Boston and not love this song. It's our city's fight song.
Dirty Dancing, New Kids on the Block – You couldn't be a teenage girl in the 90s and not want to marry the New Kids. Even though it’s not old school New Kids, I could listen to it over and over again.
Read My Mine, The Killers – The Killers are lyrical geniuses
Not Ready to Make Nice, Dixie Chicks – You have to hand it to a group of women that refuse to back down for what they believe in.
Wonderwall, Oasis – I just brings me back.
Everything, Michael Buble – I heart Michael Buble. I could get lost in his voice.
La Cienega Just Smiled, Ryan Adams
Rock & Roll, Eric Hutchinson - The source of the title of this post.
