I haven’t posted in a bit because I haven’t heard anything worthwhile in about a week or two. So I decided to write this post instead…
I firmly believe that every one of us wants to hear something epic every now and then. A song that moves us to the point of stillness. A song that captures a moment in our lives so perfectly yet we’ve never even crossed paths with the artist singing the words. So, how would they know how we’re feeling?
Music, as said time and time again, is a universal language. And when you hear lyrics that resonate with you and melodies that travel deep down into your veins, it kind of makes you feel not so alone. That someone out there gets you and how you feel. And that’s powerful. That’s epic.
Below is a list of some of the epic songs in my life. What are yours?
The Ben Taylor Band “Surround Me” – A hug in the form of a song.
Cary Brothers “Honestly” – This song reminds me of the fall, my favorite season. When the leaves are their most colorful and there’s a slight crispness to everything. When there is so much beauty around you, yet you can still be sad.
Chantal Kreviazuk “Time” – An anthem I’ve been in love with for a long time.
Delta Rae “Dance In The Graveyards” – The embodiment of joy and happiness.
Ella Eyre “We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off” – Her voice. Those words. That passion. I’ve never met a cover song I’ve loved so dearly.
John Mayer “The Heart Of Life” – My favorite from my all-time favorite.
Kate Bush “This Woman’s Work” – A heartbreakingly beautiful song.
Kodaline “All I Want” – This one might be the most sonically epic on this list. And the video is one of my favorites.
Kwabs “Perfect Ruin” – Every time I hear this song I fall in love with it all over again. When it’s over, I get kind of upset until I realize, that’s what the back button is for. Repeat! And believe me, I do. Every time.
Lifehouse “Simon” – This song reminds me of a time when music was about the music itself. Some of my favorite live music experiences were watching this band live.
Mumford & Sons “After The Storm” – This one is epic in the most delicate form.
Sheryl Crow “I Shall Believe” – If you ever watched the episode of Roswell (RIP) where Liz dances with future Max to this stunner, and you were single at the time you watched it, and nearly twenty years have passed and you’re still single, then this one would get to you too.
Sia “Breathe Me” – Remember when Myspace had background music for your profile page? Remember Myspace? …Well, this was one of the first songs I chose for mine and I felt sooooo cool because it wasn’t a well-known song at the time. Plus the lyrics and piano beat were darker than anything on the 9 at 9 (Z100 reference). My profile page may be long gone but I still feel cool as shit when this songs lives on through my headphones.
