First up, we have my all-time favorite song. To Be With You by Mr. Big. I just love this song, it will never get old! I remember hearing it growing up and it has always stuck with me.
Next up, we have Make Me Lose Control by Eric Carmen. I can remember sitting outside in the little fort part of our playset, listening to the Dirty Dancing soundtrack cassette tape. This song was on it - not sure why, as it wasn't on the CD (which made me SO SAD!), but I loved it.
You Really Got Me by Van Halen. This song always makes me think of my dad. I think it was on a commercial once and I was a huge fan. So my dad went out and bought me the cassette tape...thanks, dad! I think I only listened to this song over and over again, but I love that he did that!
Country is probably one of my favorite genres when it comes to music, but I didn't get introduced to it until I was in junior high. I think Kenny Chesney's She Thinks My Tractors Sexy was my first favorite country song. He has been one of my favorite singers ever since!
Moving along to high school dances - Get Low by Lil Jon was always a favorite. It still makes me want to dance now! I love how it was in The Proposal, too, which is a favorite movie of mine. Sandra Bullock dancing and singing this song is hilarious.
In college, Lo by Flo Rida was my very favorite song. If that song was on, you better believe I was up dancing and singing! Even now, I will sometimes get an occasional text from one of my friends if they hear it on the radio. That was my jam!
Another college favorite was Crying Out For Me by Lil Wayne. My best friend at the time and I were huge fans, we knew all the words to the beginning - I honestly didn't even remember the real song, just the rap!
I would be remiss if I didn't mention The Climb by Miley Cyrus. I think she has a great voice, so much so that I had this as my ringtone. I have always been behind when it comes to phones and getting new music on them, so when this song came out and it became my ringtone, it was my ringtone for years. Years. I got made fun of quite a bit for that. It's such a great song though, if you listen to the lyrics, it has a great message!
Since college, I would say my rap game has gone down. I am a bit more likely to turn to country, but I still do love a good rap song. Turn Down For What is one of those songs I love...it just makes me want to get up and dance! Although I have to admit, I had to look up what "turn down for what" even meant.
I could go on and on - I keep coming up with so many more songs! However, to keep this post from getting incredibly long, I will refrain from sharing them all. Happy Tuesday!
