There are those songs that give you the inevitable “feels”. I have a Spotify playlist dedicated to these songs and most of these also make it to my book writing playlist as well. There are many things I took into consideration when compiling this particular list. I didn’t just think of songs I happened across while listening through an album. I also considered songs from important moments in movies as well as musicals that I love that elicited some type of emotion out of me. I will also insert my favorite feel-worthy lyric from each selection. Enjoy!
10. “Elastic Heart” by: Sia
Feel-Worthy Lyric: “You did not break me/ I’m still fighting for peace”
9. “Winter’s Coming” by: The Narrative
Feel-Worthy Lyric: “I drown in the mirror, you notice thing is damn disease, / and I never surface who I want to be./ I’m shaking with bruises/ I can barely stand my shame.”
8. “You’re Not Alone” by: Saosin
Feel-Worthy Lyric: “She’s just like him/ Spoiled rotten/ Confused by the lies she’s been fed/ And she’s searching for no one.. (But herself)/ Her eyes turn to green and she seems to be happy/ that she is here/ and this time I think you’ll know…”
7. “Simple and Clean” by: Utada Hikaru
Feel-Worthy Lyric: “That’s when you came to me and said/ ‘Wish I could prove I love you/ but does that mean I have to walk on water?'”
