Hey! <3
I saw this article a few days ago and thought it would be fun to recreate.
Check also the article out, which inspired me!

So here are 12 songs, which I really love and wish I could get back to the time I listened to them for the first time because they impacted my songwriting and inspired me to keep up with making music!

Feel free to check out the Spotify Playlist with all the songs I mention:


1. Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac

" Dreams unwind love is a state of mind" is my favorite lyrics because it just resonates well with my belief in love

2. Oh! Sweet Nuthin' - The Velvet Underground

"With every day she falls in love" You would think the song sounds way too happy for the lyrics because the protagonists lost everything but actually that's the beauty in it. They have the chance to start from scratch.

3. Hocus Pocus - Focus

This song is special to me because the singer doesn't sing words but is yodeling. I know it sounds weird but it fits nicely with the powerful guitar riff, solos and organ!

4. Almost Cut My Hair - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

The guitars just sound amazing and I can totally relate to the lyrics!

5. Dreams - Fleetwood Mac

This song is one of my dad's favorite songs. I also got it tattooed on my left wrist because it means the world to me.

7. The Siren - Graveyard

"There was no way I was gonna let the demon win." When my boyfriend and I had our first date this song was played in the bar and we talked for hours about how we both love this song!

8. Shooting Stars - Rival Sons

"My love is stronger than your hate will ever be" I love the message behind the song and the fact they used a gospel choir.

9. Holy Ghost Fire - Larkin Poe

"From the fingers to the frets, gonna testify" This song helped me through the stressful and tough months I had my A-Levels.

10. Are You Satisfied? - Reignwolf

The band is really unknown but it reminds me of Black Sabbath with a female singer, which is great! I love the groove of the guitars and the drums.

12. Salvation - The Limiñanas

I love the banjo and the overall vibe and it reminds me of a trip my boyfriend and I took, before the pandemic
