I posted this last week. A breakup playlist of sorts, after I saw a guest post on Helene’s blog.
I hope none of you thought that my breakup playlist was any indication of the status of my relationships with my man-hunk, Austin, or Austie-Bostie, as my mom calls him, but rest assured, I’m still in love with my groom-to-be, and despite the fact I sometimes neglect him to do work on this blog, I’m sure he still loves me too 🙂
That said, in case you were worried, here are some songs to love by to balance out the breakup playlist I posted last week.
So I love love. I love the way love makes me feel. And each one of these songs reminds me of a wonderful time in my relationship, and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy to share it with you.
Love on Top – Queen Bey
Duh. I have no explanation except that this song is really incredible.
Easy 2 Luv You – Stacie Orrico
I first heard this song with another boyfriend, but it took on new meaning when I met Austin. It really is so easy to love that man. Similarly, I also feel like it’s easy to want to yell at him sometimes, but goodness, he makes me feel like a natural women, and this song says it. Plus Stacie is amazing.
Lightweight – Demi Lovato
You guys knew that she would make an appearance sometime, right? I heard this song at first last spring, when I was running the Nike Women’s Half Marathon, and as soon as I heard it, I felt like it was written for us. Austin has my heart, and that’s all I can think of when I hear this song.
You Give Me Something – James Morrison
I have been obsessed with this song/with this artist for years, and again, this song took on new meaning when I met the nearly-husband. It didn’t mean nearly as much as when I had a schmoopy to share it with.
Sugar – Stevie Wonder
This song remind me of when me and Austin were first dating, and when he gave me his FM transmitter for my car for a long drive I had to New Jersey. I played the song the whole drive up and sang it to him.
One Night Stand – Jazmine Sullivan
This song is a good one cause it’s fun, and it describes perfectly who I was before Austin. I was a fun lady, and I had no idea that I would find someone that I’d want to marry as much as I want to do him. And then he got me heart. 🙂 Also, Jazmine, where the hell ya been girl? I’m ready for new music!
Never Knew I Needed – Ne Yo
“You’re the best thing I never knew I needed.”
Soldier – Gavin DeGraw
I’m not yet married (did I mention I’m getting married!) but this song is what I envision the union to be like.
“I’ll get it, if you need it. I’ll search, if you don’t see it. You’re thirsty I’ll be rain, you get hurt I’ll take your pain. I know, you don’t believe it, but I said it, and I still mean it. When you heard what I told you, when you get worried, I’ll be your soldier.”
I want to be his soldier.
I had literally 10,000 more songs on this list, and let me be 100 with you guys, this list was way, way more fun than the breakup playlist to compile, and it makes me just want to love on everyone. Now your turn. What’s your favorite song to love by?
