Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)

I can't pick someone specifically to write too in hopes they'll listen to music I find inspiring. It just may not be your thang. Instead I'm going to shimmy a list together with some description as to how it relates to me or inspires me, yada, yada ;)
In hopes.. that something will draw your interest and maybe you too will absolutely fall in love with the song of choice. If you're not sure if you will and want to hear part of the diddies, then hop onto Youtube put in the artist and title that way you can stop it at anytime your heart desires.

Don't forget though.. turn up those speakers!

Million Billion - Milk and Honey: The first time I heard this song I was sitting in my living room on a ladies night with my sister, and two fabulous friends Stace and Lauren. We were all gabbing and then the end of the last episode of King of Queens came on. This was the last few minutes where they did snapshots of past scenes throughout the series. I loved it and cried. Went online that night to search the lyrics hoping it would be out there and found it. It would be a great song to dance to at a Wedding but it may be too fast paced. I'm in love with it. It'll make you smile, I promise.

Dave Matthews - I'll Back You Up: Charlie played this for me long, long ago when we first started dating. I remember listening to it with him and wishing inside that Charlie and I would get married someday and be together forever. Well going on 10 yrs we're still here so perhaps my wish will keep on coming true? The lyrics are truly amazing and maybe you're not in love at the moment but if you ever were it still relates. It's when someone completely takes over your heart that you can't breathe (in a good way) and the impact they have on your life.

Counting Crows - Round Here: The first Counting Crows concert I ever went to was with my (again) fabulous friend Stacey. We sat on a blanket at the Meadows.. I can say Meadows because it still was back then. The grass was starting to get a little wet as it got cooler outside. Adam Duritz started explaining the meaning behind the song and how it go to writing it. I still get goosebumps when the music starts playing at the beginning of the song. He was so calm and beautiful describing life when he wrote it. I thought how much closer could I possibly get to the truth of a great song?

Shaggy - Mr. Boombastic: TOTALLY KIDDING!

Okay, 3 is good. I was hoping to expand the list but my thinking cap is on and just out of power.

Love you all!
