(Note: It’s been a topsy-turvy kind of week, so I’ve rearranged the schedule of the final few posts of this challenge. This was originally scheduled to be Day 29’s post…)
Day 27: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post.
“Carolina in My Mind” by James Taylor
Ever since our first family reunion in the Outer Banks in 1989, North Carolina has been my escape. When I am lost, I can always find myself in OBX.
“If You’re Going Through Hell” by Rodney Atkins
In 2006, I was absolutely going through hell–and seemed to be descending to a deeper ring with each passing day. I bawled my eyes out every time this song came on, but it became my anthem…
“If you’re goin’ through hell keep on going
Don’t slow down, if you’re scared don’t show it
You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there.”
“My Wish” by Rascal Flatts
I imagine if my dad were still here, he would say these words to me…this song is like one of his bear hugs when I’m having a bad day.
“Love Letter to Japan” by The Bird and the Bee
I don’t know what else to say–the lyrics cover my feelings about this country.
“Brave” by Sarah Bareilles
If you’re feeling down on yourself, listen twice and call me in the morning.
