my musical history 

I’ve been listening to lots of old Spotify playlists recently in an effort to get into a big picture relationship head space. I’m hoping that this will help me write my marriage vows. I just wanted to add a bit of early relationship inspiration into the mix. 

What I’ve learned is that so many songs I listened to in 2012 and 2013 have special meanings for me and so many of these songs bring me to tears. 

On Tuesday night, after a fabulous night out in the city, I drove home alone, with the top down, and sobbed hysterically while singing along loudly to Taylor Swift’s You Belong With Me

This morning, on the way to work, I heard Tegan and Sara’s song I Won’t Be Left and completely lost my shit. That one I used to listen to a lot. 

And then there’s also Hands Down, Hysteric,  I Know, I Know, I Know and Anything We Want and Moses and Sometime Around Midnight. Oh and Stubborn Love, of course. I could go on and on. 

Music is so powerful. I love rediscovering these pieces of my musical history. It’s so satisfying to sing along with the soundtrack of my life. 

It will be fun to look back at myself in a few years and rediscover what I love right now. It will be a lot of DMB, Arcade Fire, and Depeche Mode, to be sure.
