Every once in a while, a song comes along that I just cannot get sick of. No matter how many times I hear it, I still love it. I know you have a few like that too. Right now I’m loving Uptown Funk but I know if I listen to it maybe 16 more times, I’ll hate it. For any Katy Perry song, it only takes 4 listens and I’m over it. And any Pitbull song, you can bet that’s one and done.
Here are the songs that are on my forever the best, never get sick of, play again and again, list:
1. Signed, Sealed, Delivered – Stevie Wonder
It’s just so good. It would make a semi-cheesy recessional at our wedding but don’t think for a second that I’m not considering it.
2. Best I Ever Had – Gavin Degraw
I like to listen to this song loud. Loud is not something I usually do but when this comes on, I crank it. And when he gets to “But I’ve read that soda kills you and Jesus saves, On a bathroom wall where I saw your name” I can’t help but yell it out. It’s not a particularly moving lyric but I find it so silly and fun.
I also prefer to listen to this song with the windows completely open on the freeway. Because some songs just deserve crazy hair and a total lack of self-consciousness.
3. She’s Every Woman – Garth Brooks
This isn’t one of Garth’s most popular songs (and trust me, I love all of those too), but the lyrics are absolute perfection. He describes feeling about a woman the exact way that I want a man (N) to feel about me. It has, on occasion, brought me to tears.
4. Wake Me Up – Avicii
I’m waiting to get sick of this song but I probably listen to it once a day and still feel like it’s absolutely amazing. It almost makes me think I might like techno/electronic music but then I think…nah.
5. Lights (Bassnectar Remix) – Ellie Goulding
My love of this song (and this remix in particular) is probably due to the fact that we’ve watched the below video like 500 times. It makes me feel so alive. Put it on the biggest screen you own and enjoy.
6. Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
If it comes on, I will sing. I will sing at the top of my lungs and I’ll smile the whole damn time.
I would LOVE to make a fabulous playlist out of some other reader favorites. Tell me, what song/songs have you just never gotten sick of?
