Music affects us in a lot of ways. Have you ever associated a certain place or memory with a certain song? I have, and it's funny how if I hear one of them it reminds me of it so much. I use a lot of songs to associate different moods with my stories, and here are some of them.
I think of Des Moines, hospitals, and other deep stuff when I hear...
"Wait" by M83
I think of summer and having fun walking with Willy when I hear...
"Love Me Like You Do" by Ellie Goulding
"Sugar" by Maroon 5
I think of the two weeks I spent with Gramps and Grams when I hear...
"Style" by Taylor Swift
"Fight Song" by Rachel Platten
"Shut Up and Dance" by Walk the Moon
"Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart" by Sia
I think of plain ole life when I hear...
"Beautiful Now" by Zedd
"Shots" by Imagine Dragons
"Surrender" by Cash Cash
I think of memories made with my cousins and family (specifically when Amanda was down because she showed me these songs) when I hear...
"Where Do Broken Hearts Go" by One Direction
"Whistle (While You Work It)" by Katy Tiz
"Ready or Not" by Bridgit Mendler
