Songs bring indescribable thoughts and un-sayable words into something as short and simple and equal to 3 minutes and 3 paragraphs…which is stuck in our heads for long!
Yet nonetheless we turn to these same songs when we want to escape, or find Joy.
Music mesmerises us, creating a portal into a world that’s just ours.
Every note an unheard beat of our hearts that we keep going back to time and time again!!
Some songs get embedded in our memories for life even if the generation around forgets them!
Here’s a list of 10 songs that will take you down Nostalgia Avenue, and make you turn around the Memories Street.
#1 Grenade By Bruno mars
My My song rocked all our worlds!
“I’d catch a grenade for ya
throw my head on a blade for ya
I’d jump in front of a train for ya
you know I’d do anything for ya”
#2 The A Team By Ed Sheeran
We cried, We felt and then we came back for more!
“And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us”
#3 Rolling in the Deep By Adele
Adele! The Beautiful singer’s wonderful song–
“The scars of your love remind me of us
they keep me thinking that we almost had it all
the scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
(You’re gonna to wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep”
#4 On the floor By Jennifer Lopez
Remember that time when JLo rocked her magic!?
“If you go hard you gotta get on the floor
If you’re a party freak then step on the floor
If you’re an animal then tear up the floor
Break a sweat on the floor
Yeah we work on the floor”
#5 I gotta feeling By The Black eyed peas
This song might just have been the party anthem of 2009—
“I gotta feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night”
#6 Someone like you By Adele
Adele was…is…just so good that she had to make the list again!
“I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.
Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead””
#7 Just the way you are (You are amazing) By Bruno mars 2010
A personal favorite and a song every girl at some point in her life wants a guy to sing to her!
“Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment her, she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so sad to think that she doesn’t see what I see
But every time she ask me do I look okay?
When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause girl, you’re amazing
Just the way you are”
#8 We found love By Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
“We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
Shine a light through an open door
Love and life I will divide
Turn away ’cause I need you more
Feel the heartbeat in my mind
It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
But I’ve gotta let it go”
#9 Love the way you lie By Eminem feat. Rihanna
The craze behind this song was downright crazy!
And it was back in 2010!! Feel old yet?
“Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie”
#10 Bleeding love By Leona Lewis 2007
A classic by Leona Lewis that stitched up all the broken pieces of all our hearts and still does–
“Closed off from love, I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough and it was all in vain
Time starts to pass, before you know it you’re frozen
But something happened for the very first time with you
My heart melted to the ground, found something true
And everyone’s looking round thinking I’m going crazy
But I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep, keep bleeding love”
So that was our list!
