K. Flay - Blood in the Cut. This song resonates with the part of me that craves punishment or physical violence when I'm angry. We all have that inside, I think, even if most of us don't act on it!
Highly Suspect - My Name is Human. This song brings me back to the days when I really liked Stone Sour, Brand New, Breaking Benjamin...You know, those bands we all kind of feel embarrassed about now. Still, there's always going to be a part of me that a little angry and fighty and loves music like this!
Bastille - Good Grief. I love this song because of how it talks about grief and letting go of people as they leave our lives. Grief is hard, but there are beautiful moments in it, too.
Bastille - Blame. First of all, this video is so, so weird. Bastille has the oddest videos ever, but they're really intriguing and fun to watch. Anyway, I love the sound and feel of this song, and the imagery in the lyrics is jarring and visceral. Love it.
1975 - Somebody Else. (Song starts at 3:00) Poignant and pretty, this is one of those songs that I don't feel really applies to my life these days but still connects with memories.
Lumineers - Cleopatra. This song feels like a reminder to grab hold of life and the people who matter and enjoy them now, because we don't want to look back on our lives with regret.
