Songs That Define Me

Miss Helene is hosting one of the best, best, best linkups today!

Helene in Between

Ya know those songs that you hear and you're instantly reminded of a specific time in your life? Those songs. Songs that represent a specific time in your life. Songs that have a memory in between the lyrics. Songs that you'll never forget.

Songs that define you.

So here's a quick Top 10 list of songs that have defined my life and a little blurb telling you why.
Ps. This list could be forever long! But I just picked the first 10 that came to mind because I figure they must've impacted me the most.

This song is old school and reminds me of the boy who introduced it to me. I made tons of bad decisions with this boy and along the way learned a ton of things about myself and about people in general.

This song, specifically the version in the YouTube clip above reminds me of my baby sister for reasons no one other than my family would understand. Also the move Pure Country.

This song was played at a funeral I attended in October of 2009. Everything changed in that one weekend and I'll never forget it. I cry every time I hear this song. 

This song was played during the opening credits of One Tree Hill and come on, you already know how I feel about One Tree Hill. Also, there's a local band who plays this song a lot and every time I'm at their concert I call my sister and sing it to her. Every. Time.

Oh there's so much I could say about this song. But instead I'll leave you with this picture. A boy wrote that and attached it to a rose and gave it to me. And this song sort of became our song. Precious-ness I tell ya.

This song takes me back to my very first real boyfriend in Junior High. This was "our song". HAHAHAH, oh young love.

Pretty much every NSync song has a memory attached for me. But this on in particular. Reminds me of a life defining friendship.
This reminds me of Senior year of high school and these girls and laughing until we couldn't breathe. 

Odd, but I'll probably start to cry if I talk about what this song means to me. The best summer I've ever had, ever.

You probably don't even know this song, but it reminds me of being 21 and 22 and makes me smile every time. Also, this is a hometown boy and I've been to about 95 of his concerts. That's not an exaggeration at all. And 9 times out of 10 we rock the front row. Duh.

So there you go. A little trip down memory lane for me with songs full of memories.
