I was a mass communications major in college. Part of my course study was a stint in the university’s tiny radio studio where the radio waves were all mine for one hour every Thursday night. It was the best. I played whatever I wanted. I love music, but I’m really not choosy. There’s a format type called “middle of the road” which is typically top 40 stuff that everyone likes. Well, my fellow classmates teased me that my style was more “all over the road”. I’d play country and hip-hop, showtunes and metal. I loved it all.
So that’s the reasoning behind my wild list below. Some are old favorites while others are newly discovered. These are the songs that have inspired me over the past months when I lock myself in the office and write…
Faith, Hope and Love – Beckah Shae (from the Midnight Child book trailer)
Wicked soundtrack – Original Broadway cast
Haunted – Taylor Swift
Hard to Handle – The Black Crowes
Sexy and I Know It – LMFAO
Bella’s Lullaby – Taliesin Orchestra
Dirty Little Secret – The All-American Rejects
Somebody’s Heartbreak – Hunter Hayes
Pour Some Sugar on Me – Def Leppard
We Found Love – Rihanna
Beautiful Liar – Beyonce & Shakira
Evacuate the Dance Floor – Cascada
Set Fire to the Rain – Adele
Proof that I’m a creative person. Who else would put Adele and Def Leppard on the same list?
