“I don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I’ve got to go There’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on And you’ve just gotta keep on keeping on”
I don’t want to wait anymore I’m tired of looking for answers. Take me some place where there’s music and there’s laughter. I don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow. Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I’ve got to go.
I am a firm believer in the immense healing properties of music. It’s always there for you, telling you what you really need to hear in that moment. Today’s selection are my ultimate ‘Power Up’ songs. They’ve helped get me through the toughest of times, and reminded me to always TYCI (Tuck Your Cunt In) and get the fuck on with life. I’m not going to go into great detail about each song and what they mean to me….I’ll just let them do the talking
Ben Howard - The Fear (’I will become what I deserve’….ooft)
Tina Dico - Count To Ten (’Sometimes the fastest way to get there is to go slow’…nailed it)
Major Lazer - Get Free (I cried when Amber Coffman sang this at the Women’s March in Washington)
Red Carpet - Alright (One of the most uplifting dance tunes of all time)
First Aid Kit - My Silver Lining OK I can’t not talk about this one. Every single lyric in this song seemed like it had been written especially for me, at a time in my life when I needed it the most. It became my daily musical mantra, and it still effects me the same way whenever I listen to it.
i made my own personal kin playlist ! i’ve been fiddling with this playlist for literally months but i’m pretty sure i’m content now. it’s quite alot more folky than su playlists usually are but thats the kind of music i like 💛
