Intro
Hey guys! I've really wanted to write an article for a while now, so I decided to give it a shot. This article will hopefully give you an idea about me, and my personality. I hope you like this article, and if it goes well, I may try to write another one!

Music
I don't know about you guys, but music is literally my life! It cheers me up when I'm down, relaxes me when I need it, and is a perfect way to celebrate. It even feels like music is my only friend sometimes. I feel like I could spend hours listening to music, but I never know what to listen to!

Favorites
I often get the question, "What's your favorite song?", and I find myself unable to answer. Usually my favorite song changes way too much, almost always what I hear on the radio regularly. But there are some songs I find myself constantly loving, almost addicted to. I could just listen to them for hours on end, and to be honest, sometimes I do! This article is just all about those kind of songs, that may not be the most popular right now, but I still love, and I always will.

Playlist
The following are the songs that I've always loved and forever will. Though they may not be very popular or your favorites I still find myself absolutely adoring them! They are the kind of songs I'd listen to on a rainy day or when I'm feeling down. These are in no particular order ;)

1. Apologize by One Republic
I don't know what it is about this song, but I absolutely love it. I find the lyrics so meaningful and thoughtful, and I am always singing along with it! I wish it came on the radio more often, it is one of my favorite songs EVER! The tune is incredible, and it all just comes together and forms a work of art -- or I guess in this case music! My favorite lyric from Apologize is "I loved you with a fire red, now it's turning blue."

2. Paradise by Coldplay
Okay, before I go on about this song, I just have to say, who doesn't love Coldplay?! Anyways, the tune in this song is the main thing for me, I love the way they sing paradise and how the vocals reach so many levels! It is absolutely stunning, and I find the combination of notes and the beautiful percussion role making this song truly amazing. My favorite lyric from Paradise is "I know the sun must set to rise." I find it an inspiring and good motto to live by :)

3. Fireflies by Owl City
Many people haven't heard of this song, and if you haven't, seriously, what are you doing? It is such a unique song, you will never hear anything like it. Everything about it is special, the lyrics, the tune, the artist's voice, EVERYTHING. I can't describe such a masterpiece ;) My favorite lyric from Fireflies is "It's hard to say I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep."

4. A-Team by Ed Sheeran
This song, like Apologize, has very meaningful lyrics. I usually am a bigger fan of upbeat songs, but this song also really captivates me. I find the beat and tune to be quite spectacular, and the lyrics, though they may not be true, really touch me and I feel as though I can relate. It really encompasses my emotions, and I really hope you listen to it, you will not be disappointed. I really don't know how to describe why I love this song, I just do. Maybe it's how the whole thing fits together. My favorite lyric from A-Team is "It's too cold outside for angels to fly."

5. Safe and Sound by Capital Cities
This is a fairly old song, but I still find myself loving it. Everytime I hear it I find myself getting up and dancing, singing along to the beat. It is an amazing song to cheer you up, help you celebrate, or maybe just listen to when you really are in the mood. The lyrics are also beautiful :) My favorite lyric from Safe and Sound is "Even if the sky is falling down I know that we'll be safe and sound."
