Music For Your Ears and Soul

“Bohemian Rhapsody” – Queen

This is probably my favorite song of all time.  I love it.  I love hearing it on the radio and singing my heart out to it in the car.  Queen is one of my top 5 favorite bands/artists, so of course they would be on this list. 

“Friends in Low Places” – Garth Brooks

This song always brings me back to my childhood.  I know every.single.word.  I grew up listening to Garth and this song always brings me back.  As do some of his others, but this one particularly.  It reminds me of my family trip to Disneyland when I was little as well as Las Vegas when I was a teenager. 

“Claire de Lune” – Debussy

This was my grandfather’s favorite song.  It is so beautiful and peaceful.  When I really need to relax or I can’t sleep, I put this song on and instantly calm down and drift off.  Grandpa was a smart man. 

“How Great Thou Art” – Carrie Underwood

This was my grandmother’s favorite song.  We played it at her memorial when I was 12, and it soon became the song played at all my grandparents’ memorials.  It is a beautiful song, and Carrie Underwood does an amazing rendition of it.  It is probably one of my favorite hymns. 

“Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)” – Baz Luhrmann

This is kind of a random addition, but the words of this ring true so much.  Just listen to it and soak it all in.  Look at the lyrics and think about it.  It is all so true.  We should all take some of this advice.  It isn’t written by him, keep that in mind, but we can thank him for making it super popular. 

These are definitely not all the songs that are my favorite or that speak to me, but they would definitely be my top 5.
