I love music, it truly brings back memories and helps create new ones. I’m open to all types of music; I could be listening to classical music in the morning and metal in the afternoon. I’ve compiled my 20 favorites songs and listed it by genre and the reason why it’s my favorite. It was hard narrowing it to only 20, but here we go!


1. Aaliyah – Are You That Somebody? – the song of my middle school days, I just loved Aaliyah’s voice, style, and the beats to the song.

2. Xcape – My Little Secret -Also another song that I loved in my middle school days, don’t worry, I didn’t have a little secret LOL I was too young.


3. Bone Thugs n Harmony – Crossroads – We all lose or will lose someone and I feel that this song is very comforting. Not to mention I love their fast rapping style.

4. Dilated Peoples – Poisonous – Love the lyrics, yeah she’s poisonous, but I see that as a compliment because she’s not one to be reckoned with.

Classic Rock

5. Simon & Garfunkel – The Boxer – I just love the melody, it’s melancholy, but it’s peaceful and I picture myself frolicking in a field with sunshine and butterflies surrounding me.

6. The Beatles – Here Comes The Sun – It’s just a cheerful song that I truly love; anything from The Beatles really is amazing.

Indie Rock

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Black Tongue – This is one of my favorite bands of all time! Karen O, the lead singer is so feisty in this song, I just love her lyrics, “Boy you’re just a stupid b**** and girl you’re just a no good d****.” Love it! haha

10. Interpol – Evil – For one, it’s an awesome song and for two, I learned how to play part of the song on a guitar.
