I believe what is going on in our life affects how well a song resonates with us. Other times a song can take us back to a happy or sad time. Music can make you laugh, cry, dance, feel sexy, get in a romantic mood, reflect on the past, or motivate one push through dark days. This problaby explains why our favorite song tends to change.
Some of mine are as follows
“Someone like you” by Van Morrison is about finally finding true love
“Neither one of us” by Gladys Knight & The Pips – Realizing a relationship is over
“I don’t wanna fight no more” by Tina Turner – Also about ending relationships
“The World’s Greatest” by R. Kelly is a great affirmation song for facing challenges.
“Empire State of Mind” Jay-Z and Alicia Keys (a good motivation song)
“U Saved Me” – Another R. Kelly song is good for recalling one’s blessings
There are numerous great dance songs, smooth jazz, funk, soul ,rock & roll....etc Again it all comes back to what mood you are in at the time.
