Lost in the Beat

Besides being an avid photographer and book reader, I am also an avid music listener. Music is my life line so to speak. From the slow calming melody of classical music, the headbanging involved in rock music, to the (sometimes) weird ways I dance to pop and country music-I crave each when I listen to music. I pretty much listen to music 24/7. When I go to sleep, music is playing in the background. When I study, music is my partner. When I dance, it’s the lead.

So with all of that information, here is a list of some of my favorite songs.

  1. Bohemian Rhapsody~Queen
  2. Bury a Friend~Billie Ellish
  3. Must be Doing Something Right~Billy Currington
  4. The Four Seasons- Spring in E Major~Antonio Vivaldi
  5. Hey You~Pink Floyd
  6. Dreams-NF
  7. Second Chance~Shinedown
  8. Sweet Child O’ Mine~Guns N’ Roses
  9. You and Tequila~Kenny Chesney
  10. Chicken Fried~Zac Brown Band

High school dances are something we remember for the rest of our lives. From the music, to the friends we hung out with, to the guy or girl we danced with, and even the hilarious photos we took.

Besides graduation, nothing can compare to winter formal or prom. We can spend a night not having to worry about passing an upcoming test or senior deadlines that are fastly approaching. The only thing we have to stress over is “Do I look alright?”

At my most recent formal, the dj spun an abundance of tunes, covering that of pop, country, and rap. I’ve listed links to some of my favorites played that night and a few I was surprised to hear.

Journey~Don’t Stop Believing
Metallica~Enter Sandman
Dan + Shay~Speechless
Nirvana~Smells Like Teen Spirit
Queen~Bohemian Rhapsody
Abba~Dancing Queen

 

 

Moments in Dance

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.~Rabindranath Tagore

Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.~Carl Sandburg

The only thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.~Neil Gaiman

The dance is a poem of which each movement is a word.~Mata Hari

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.~Wayne Dyer
