I was on Facebook today just scrolling through and I came across an interesting challenge: describe your relationship with someone in ten song titles. I thought this would be a fun blog post as well as a good way to share some of my favorite songs with you.
So, challenge accepted! Be warned though that me and T are more of a metal/punk kind of couple so most of these are going to be just that.
1.From States Away- Major League
T made me a playlist on Youtube and this was the first song on it. Pretty catchy.
2. Home- Our Last Night
3. Time After Time- Quietdrive/ New Found Glory
I personally like the New Found Glory version and T likes the Quietdrive version better.
4. Such Great Heights- Confide
This is one of me and T’s all-time favorite songs. Anytime it comes on in the car, he starts drumming on whatever is available and I start yelling the lyrics. I guess the song title isn’t really as important as the lyrics are.
“I am thinking it’s a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images and when we kiss they’re perfectly aligned.
And I have to speculate that God himself did make us into corresponding shapes like puzzle pieces from the clay.
And true, it may seem like a stretch, but it’s thoughts like this that catch my troubled head when you’re away, when I am missing you to death.”
5. Always- Blink 182
6. Giants- Bear Hands
Me and T are of average heights so this is another one where the lyrics are the important part.
“Come on we both knew this thing would be hard. I see art, you see class.You think, you ask. You say ‘Darling am I a chore?’ I said I know you love me, I am loving you more.I am loving you more”
We ALWAYS fight about who loves who more. It’s also just a really upbeat, feel good song.
7. World Favorite- Man Overboard
T is one of my favorite people on this planet so…
8. You Be The Anchor that keeps my feet on the ground, I’ll be the wings that keep your heart in the clouds- Mayday Parade
For obvious reasons…
9. Navy Blue- The Story So Far
T is in the Navy so that’s where the song title comes in. The lyrics don’t have much to do with him, however, this is one of my absolute favorite songs in general.
10. I Already Miss You- The Kooks
Not really a punk song but The Kooks are ahh-mazing. And the title describes a good portion of our relationship.
11. Somewhere Beyond the Sea- Frank Sinatra
I love Frank.
12. I Don’t Mind- Defeater
“I don’t mind if we take our time ’cause I’m all yours if you’re all mine.”
13. Growing Pains-Neck Deep
I could post all the lyrics to this song and it perfectly applies to me and T but here’s one of our favorite parts.
“Still so young and naive with our hearts on our sleeves but I know we’ll be alright. They don’t know what we share in the briefest of moments. I’m head over heels for the smallest components. That light in your eye or that look on your face, secure in the fact that we both our place.”
So, I went slightly above the required ten but it was honestly really hard to narrow it down even to thirteen. What are your ten songs?
