The Playlist of my life:

1) The Unforgiven by Metallica
I heard this song when I was around ten years old and it really made me have an open mind when it comes to music.

2) Listen to Your Heart by Roxette
I was on a road trip with my two older sisters and we had stopped at a gas station at around seven in the morning when this song all of the sudden started playing. Neither of my sisters were paying attention to the song, when they and the lady at the disk saw me dancing and screaming this song on top of my lungs. They all laughed, and my sisters were sooo embarrassed by me screaming and dancing. This then became my new motto in life.

3) People Are Strange by The Doors
I love this song so much. The song speaks about how people and life in general look strange if you are completely alone or not letting yourself enjoy life. So if you believe that life is a strange place, your brain will look for all the strange things and not letting you be happy. The reason I love this song is because I used to believe that I was a very strange person. I always noticed how I did things differently then other people and that made me unhappy for some time.

4) I Don’t Want to Be by Gavin DeGraw
I grew up watching One Tree Hill. Me and my sisters would race home from school in order to see it in time when they would play it on TV. We watched like five seasons like that before we realized that we could watch it on the internet. To be honest I miss those days.

5) Babe I’m Gonna Leave You by Led Zeppelin
Arrhhh, this song is soooo bittersweet to me because, when I first heard it, I was almost in a relationship with this guy. I liked him and he liked me. Easy enough right? Well, I was moving to another city real soon and I hadn’t told him yet. Let just say it was hard for the both of us knowing that we both liked each other but couldn’t be together. We didn’t want to try the whole long-distance thing, so we had to end something that we never really started.

6) Divisionary (Do the right thing) by Ages and Ages
I does not matter where I am. Any time I want to do something I probably shouldn’t, this song always starts playing. It was like a blessing and a course finding this song. I love the band and think they are so underrated.

7) Daughters by John Mayer
The song is about how this guy in the relationship can’t love the person simply because her parents or more specific her father didn’t love her. As the song may seem a bit confusing to some, I really liked the poetry behind the question the song raises. How do you love a person, who because of their parents now can’t love anyone else?

8) Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles
This was the first The Beatles song I heard. I was about nine or ten years and my teacher who played it for me in primary school some years later told me that I cried listening to it the first time. I don’t remember it, but I can totally believe it. Whenever I feel as if there is no light in the end, the sun always comes. Somedays felt like the end of the world, like after a long “cold” day, but then suddenly the sun would shine or something. And that always made me feel a sense of hope and relief.

9) Undressed by Kim Cesarion
Me and my best friend would sing this song and dance to it like some maniac’s at like age of thirteen. We had no clue what the song was really about, but it didn’t matter at the time. It was only her, me and the air mattress we slept in for like a month in her bedroom.

10) Too Much Love Will Kill You by Queen
I actually asked my sisters to select this last song. They all said this song by Queen. My mom and I were the only one in the house who listened to Queen and for as long as I can remember this sad song written by the guitarist Brian May was my favorite one. My mom did not agree with the message, but I did and still do in some ways.

Hi! Thank you so much for reading my first article. I am sorry for any grammar mistakes, but English is not my first or second language. Teen Vouge has this series where they ask celebrities to create the playlist of their life. So, I thought that I should give it a go! Let me know what you guys thought about the songs or if you have some song recommendations.

Much love <3
