Day 11: Songs I listen to when I'm happy, sad, hyped, bored, and mad

I absolutely LOVE music. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that on this site before...haha. So, this post may be one of two things...super long because I have a million songs for each category, or super short because I can't decide and just say something general. I guess I'll get started and we'll just see how it turns out.

When I feel ____ I listen to ____...

Happy: My favorite songs. I have a playlist on iTunes for my 5-starred songs. It consists of everything from pop music, country music, to mellow love songs. I also like to listen to songs that just simply sound happy. Happy music also has to be something I know the words to and can sing along. *Some of my favorite happy songs are: Strongest Suit from Aida, Witch Doctor by the Chipmunks, Popular and Defying Gravity from Wicked, Happy Girl by Martina Mcbride, Give a Little by Colors, Up All Night by Colors...Ok pretty much anything by Colors.

Sad: There are times when I am sad and feel the need to listen to something uplifting to pull me out of the sadness during those times I listen to songs that have inspirational lyrics. Songs that will remind me to get up and keep pushing on no matter how hard life is. Some of my faves in this category are: Dig a Little Deeper from the Princess and the Frog soundtrack, The End by Matt West, Hold On by B*Witched, Soar by Christina Aguilera, and of course the classic You Are Loved by Josh Groban. Then there are times when I'm sad and simply want to stay sad. I need to just have a good cry and let it all out. Some of my favorite songs to listen to at times like this are: Broken by Lindsey Haun, Few Days Down by Mandy Moore, Rain by Colors, Black Roses Red by Alana Grace, and Just Let Me Cry by Hilary Weeks.

Hyped: Ok, when I'm hyped I pretty much always want to listen to music that seems just as hyped as I am. Something fun I can dance around in my pj's to! Some that I love are: The Party's Just Begun by Cheetah Girls, 121 from the Goofy Movie soundtrack, I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas, Dynamite by Taio Cruz, Replay by Iyaz, and Bam by Miranda Cosgrove.

Bored: mm...this one is strange for me because to me boredom isn't really a mood it's more of a state of being. So, hope you don't mind but I'm going to change this one to mellow. When I'm in the mood to just sit back and relax and listen to something calm and easy on the ears some of my favorites are: Tamahana from the Johnny Lingo soundtrack, Feels Like Home from the Brother Bear soundtrack, Soledad by Colors, On My Mind by Kalai, Lonely Road by Erik Hickenlooper, and This is Home by Switchfoot.

Mad: Ok, this one is the hardest for me because I don't really get mad very often. Anger just isn't my thing. So, with no way to really explain it these are the songs I tend to listen to when I come the closest to being upset: Let it Die by Three Days Grace, Just Like You also by Three Days Grace, Lie to Me by 12 Stones, If Everyone Cared by Nickelback
