I love music. I’m still depressed that I wasn’t blessed with vocal chords that would land me in Pitch Perfect or the ability to play an instrument worthy of a Josie and the Pussycats drummer (sorry, 90’s). Music is still a part of my daily routine. Whether I’m jamming in the car, singing in the shower, cleaning, getting ready, or even working, there’s always music. I love when people share music with me, so if you have any recommendations, please share! I’m open to anything and everything. Here are some of my favorite tracks that have never hit the Billboard 100 (but are super awesome).
All About Us by He Is We feat. Owl City
I first heard of He Is We thanks to a free download on iTunes. “All About Us” is just a sweet little love song. Their entire My Forever album is awesome. (And so is their Skip to the Good Part EP.) The video is super cute (and sad). It seriously makes me want to cry.
Cause lovers dance when they’re feeling in love. Spotlight’s shining. It’s all about us.
Amnesia by Mozella
I’ve only listened to two songs by Mozella, but I love them both. This song is about getting out of a relationship that you just wish you could forget. I think we’ve all had those.
I wanna go back to do the day before I met ya. Things would be better. If I could forget ya. Somebody give me something strong so I can release ya. A double shot of amnesia. Life would be sweeter for me.
For the Nights I Can’t Remember by Hedley
I can thank my friend, Lucas, for introducing me (and the entire orientation staff) to this song. It’s about a man who is apologizing to his girl for not being there when she needed him. A super sweet (super awesome) apology song, ladies.
And I do wanna love you. If you see me running back. And I do wanna try. Because if falling for you girl is crazy, then I’m going out of my mind. So hold back your tears this time.
Shades of Love by Empty Trash
I heard this song on Holiday in the Sun. Thanks Mary-Kate and Ashley. It’s another sweet love song. I couldn’t find a music video, so enjoy an MKA version. (Oh, hey, Megan Fox.)
I could live a thousand years if I could be alone with you.
Stranger by Chris August
Chris August is predominantly a Christian singer, but this song is about meeting someone for the first time and falling in love. Love at first sight, anyone? This also has no official vid, so enjoy a fan-made slideshow.
Hello there. How are you? Amazing. It’s nice to finally meet you. I’ve been patiently waiting. Been waiting just to see you to tell you I dreamed you. Now I found you. So call off the search. Cause I found my stranger.
