I’ve stumbled upon quite a few of my blogging friends linking up with Helene in Between and her post on songs that define us as a person and how could I not join it?! I mean I am a musician! So here are some of the songs that define me:
R.O.C.K In the USA by John Mellencamp
He was one of my favorite artists growing up, my first concert, and I knew all the words to his music as a toddler.
I’m Just a Girl by No Doubt
Gwen is my idol. She’s kickass, has a killer voice, she was my first fashion inspiration, HER ABS, and is still kicking ass. I struggled with the challenges of being a girl, I’ve always leaned on the tomboy side of the spectrum and this song couldn’t describe me better.
Pure Imagination performed by Jamie Cullum
I dream big. I’m much more contemplative then people perceive. This song is how I feel about life.
Bogoroditse Devo by Rachmaninoff
This piece is from Rachmaninoff’s vespers and is the Hail Mary.
Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz
This is my favorite orchestral piece ever. EVER. It is amazing and it constantly inspires me, giving me creative motivation. I only posted the 5th movement though.
EARTH, WIND & FIRE. ALL OF IT.
I love to dance, love to move, my mom and I’s favorite band, Philip Bailey is amazing STILL, they give the best concerts, they are high energy, bass player rules. What is there not to love?
This was incredibly difficult for me. I kept coming back to the list. There are so many artists that I think have influenced my life and who I am… Ella Fitzgerald, Esperanza Spalding, The Who, Hanson, Harry Connick Jr, Brahms just to name a few haha.
Today I ran a rough 10 miles, being slightly hungover didn’t really help the situation, but it was mostly rough because I just started a little too late in the morning. BUT I DID IT. Double digits back in action, I feel totally confident I could do a fall half now but I just need to find one!
Mileage – 10.52 miles, foam roller
QOD – You have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face.
