    1. There are songs that find you when you need them most. I bought the Odyssey and Oracle record on a whim for my birthday, and nestled into the middle of it was this beautiful ray of hope.
    2. My family often took long road trips and Songs in the Key of Life was a staple album. My parents pointed out that Stevie wrote this song for his daughter, so now it always reminds me of them.
    3. Almost every screen name I had in elementary and middle school was a riff off of this title.
    4. Metric was one of the first bands that I found on my own in the days of Limewire. I kept revisiting this song in different periods of my life and each time I identify with the lyrics in a different way.
    5. Totally cliché Manic Pixie Sad Girl song, but god I love it. This was my High school jam when I overloaded myself with advanced classes and far too much coffee.
    6. My college roommate introduced me to Andrew Bird with a mix CD. I will always think of our amazing friendship, walking across campus in the fall and wandering around Denton, Tx.
    7. For every heartsick moment in my life this song will always be playing. I’ve played it when I’m single and lonely, in a relationship and falling in love, and after every break-up.
    8. The Violent Femmes were an era for me and remain a summer necessity. They were the soundtrack for driving out to the lake, shooting off fireworks in church parking lots, and hunting down allegedly haunted local spots.
    9. David Bowie has been my idol for as long as I can remember, but this song cemented my love. For every moment I need to remind myself that being weird and uncool is a strength, this song has been there.
    10. Memories are Now- I had a job that I thought was going to be my dream but ended up being a toxic nightmare. I quit without anything new lined up and was terrified of losing everything I had worked so hard for. This song gave me the motivation to begin again.

    Samantha’s Life Changing Songs

    1. Jack’s Mannequin was my first concert without parental supervision, and I felt like I was on top of the world. Also, this is a classic. Don’t @ me.
    2. Would you believe I got into punk rock in high school to try to impress a guy? We all make choices we aren’t proud of, but ATL soon became one of my favorite bands.
    3. I’m not sure if there’s a song that spearheaded my attitude more than this jam by Hayley and company. She was fierce and confident and everything I wished to be.
    4. Matt actually came on Pandora in college (LOL remember when we used that?) and once I heard this song, I was hooked. Almost 10 years later, I still resonate with the lyrics.
    5. Aside from sports, I think my dad’s just glad we can agree on MJ in the car instead of Barry Manilow…
    6. Never really got much into indie pop before The 1975, but I have to credit my best friend, Erin, for this one. From different colleges, grad schools and jobs, we managed to see the group perform live. Together. Life complete? Maybe not but it’s close.
    7. Growing up, I remember watching You’ve Got Mail at least once a week with my mom. 20 years later, it’s still one of my favorite movies. (If you’re reading this, Tom Hanks, I want you to officiate my future wedding…whenever that may be…)
    8. This album is just life-changing. I mean, seriously.
    9. Truly, the beginning of the fangirl lifestyle starts with this song, I wanted to hate the lads- I really did. But I bought tickets to This Is Us, saw this performance and was hooked. That was it.

    BJ’s Life Changing Songs

    1. 8701 was the very first CD I purchased with my own money. Oh yes, 11 year old BJ was jamming out to this on her pink Walkman.
    2. And thus began my emo stage of life…
    3. I love T&S so much. They were my first introduction to what people call “indie” music. I remember being like wtf is this…there is music like this?! I likeee
    4. Okay, I know, but this song was the exact thing I was thinking after my last serious relationship ended. Adele just knows how to put feelings to words.
    5. I first saw MisterWives in 2015 at ACL and developed such a crush on Mandy Lee it’s shameful.
    6. Because apparently guys send music without lyrical intentions, I learned this the hard way.
    7. Well his entire Dopamine album actually. I ran a half marathon listening to it on repeat, yes, on repeat.
    8. Can we just take a second to thank Emily for introducing me to K-Pop. Seriously some of the best workout tracks of my life. (aww shucks)
    9. I never knew you had it in you Niall, thoroughly impressed/hot and bothered.

    Kasey’s Life Changing Songs

    1. My dad used to sing this song to me and my sisters when we were kids – it’s one of the first songs I remember listening to over and over and never getting tired of it.
    2. I grew up on the Dixie Chicks and never gave up on them, even when they had their downfall. Landslide is a song I can always come back to.
    3. This song made me feel fierce, even in elementary school. There’s just something about Shania Twain that lights a fire under you!
    4. (Taylor Swifts You Belong With Me, not on Spotify, but on the Youtube Playlist) This song was my anthem in my ~very dramatic~ high school life. Perpetually wanting boys to like me the most and blaring this song when they didn’t.
    5. As strange as it sounds, this song really empowered me – it made me feel like I didn’t have to be sad about people who were dumb, but that I could be like “you know what, I’m better than this and one day you will realize it!”
    6. Oh snap. My first dive into the fangirl world is one I’ll never forget – the Bieber fever is one that just doesn’t disappear, and this song was a giant step to showing people who he really was as an artist (and validating what I had been saying for years, obvi).
    7. My always and forever – Through the Dark has picked up my spirits more times than I could ever count. One Direction always makes you feel like you aren’t alone.
    8. When I first moved to Dallas, I jammed to this song like there was no tomorrow. A whole new city was in front of me and I could make it anything I wanted to.
    9. Gosh, this song changed my life just in thinking about the future – one day I’ll know a feeling like Ed describes in this song and what a life-changing day that will be.

    Ryann’s Life Changing Songs

    1. This song made me fall in love with The Killers. “Destiny is calling me…” nuff said.
    2. My friend Chase passed away when I was in 8th grade and this the song we listened to to help us through it.
    3. Ten years old, dancing in circles with my best friend and her dad. We still sing this song to this day.
    4. This was on the I Am Sam soundtrack which was a life changing movie for me. Rufus did a beautiful cover that still inspires me.
    5. Easily one of Bastille’s most melodic songs which I LOVE. This song is why I love All This Bad Blood.
    6. Do I really need to explain this one?.
    7. My relationship with TRS goes wayyyyyyy back. Ask me about it sometime.
    8. First song of the first set I ever saw at Lollapalooza and it’s obviously been a love affair ever since.
    9. First song I ever cried listening to. It’s just beautiful.

    Wade’s Life Changing Songs

    1. My first experience at Hollister I heard this song playing in the store, bought no clothing, but I did buy this CD.
    2. One of the few times I got grounded in high school was to skip school to see ATL in Louisville, all because of this song.
    3. My freshman year of college I worked night shift for a Tuxedo company. This album got me through many nights of searching for unmentionable items in pockets.
    4. I loved the countdowns on the radio, and in 1996-1997 I still remember listening to this in my parents living room.
    5. I’m still convinced that song could come out today and be a #1 hit. Way ahead of it’s time, but iconic.
    6. Besides “No Hands” there isn’t another song that will make this white boy loose his shit more than “Return of the Mack”.
    7. I love everything from Blink, but this song is my all time favorite and made thisalbum the soundtrack to many burnt cd’s.
    8. The hidden track at the end of their song “You”, “Milk” made me start checking ends of every song to make sure a gem like this isn’t hiding.
    9. No Jacket Required was the first CD I remember getting as a gift, so thank you to whoever got this for me.
  • 4/7/2017

    1. I was obsessed with The Beach Boys, and this song still gets me. It’s just the definition of feel-good music.
    2. I grew up listening strictly to the “oldies” station and The Supremes were one of the only girl groups I knew. It was also the first physical album I bought.
    3. Yes, if you know me you know my obsession with Jack White. It’s a cliche but this song transformed me. It was my first intro to modern music and then the obsession just continued.
    4. I was actually late to the Beyonce game, but this album is what made me realize how talented she is. This song gives me goosebumps and when she matches her voice to the guitar solo. Crazy talented, plus you know, Houston girl. There’s just so much emotion behind this song.
    5. ANNND Here’s Kanye. I’ve talked before about how Kanye has gotten me through every dark time in my life, but this song got me through my first breakup.
    6. I discovered Prince late in life, but after watching Putple Rain and reading his bio and learning about his work ethic. Always dress like a rockstar, he said he wouldn’t even go to the convenience store if he didn’t look like -Prince- .
    7. GRIMES, there was something so entrancing to me about this song. I got hooked on Grimes shortly after, the dark lyrics the catchy, soft sounds.
    8. Me waitressing, freelance writing, dreaming of not mopping floors, this song came on during every waitressing shift I had. Brandon Flowers had that soothing voice that made me a dreamer.
    9. I’ve talked about how I cried when I first heard this song. It was also one of my most ambitious and terrifying interviews. I’ve travelled across the country twice to see Asaf and each time I’m left in tears.

    RIP One Direction – Some breakup tracks for the band you love.

    1. Nobody Compares – Because nobody compares to you, One Direction.
    2. I Would – I can’t sleep at night knowing I have never publicly recommended this song. So classic boy band pop and SO GOOD.
    3. C’mon, C’mon – OK, I’m caught. I only included this song because at a concert Harry saw me doing the “come hither” index finger motion to these lyrics, and I wanted to talk about it. It’s also a great song, though!.
    4. Through the Dark – Anytime you feel sad, listen to this song. Trust me.
    5. Strong – It’s cheesy, but true: for a lot of us, One Direction really does make us feel strong, and that is just nothing to be ashamed of.
    6. Where Do Broken Hearts Go? – Broken hearts like ours go support the boys solo endeavors bc I know I’m not the only one hyped to hear more from Big Payno.
    7. Change Your Ticket – I need an explanation for why this was never added to last year’s tour set list because we all NEEDED to hear this live. NEEDED.
    8. If I Could Fly – If this song is any indication of future solo Harry music, we better GET READY.
    9. Never Enough – My motto when it comes to anything One Direction-related: “Too much is never enough.”
    10. Bonue Track: History – THIS IS NOT THE END! (or that’s what I tell myself anyway).
