We’ve asked your favorite songs before, we’ve asked what songs have gotten stuck in your head or fit your mood… but never have we asked what songs define or embody you as a person. Here are some things you can think about: the lyrics (or perhaps no lyrics at all!), the genre of music, the dynamics, the speed, the length of the track, whether it’s acoustic or full band, or perhaps its popularity.
Here are what a few Mighty staffers had to say:
🐶Kat: “Dog Days” by Florence and the Machine ➡️ I’ve been through… a lot. And this song, through its dynamics and poetry, is an anthem of survival. I am always running, weighed down by my struggles, but I always try and search for the joy. That brightness is what I hold onto, with the hope that happiness is waiting for me once I get through the heaviness.
🔧Carla: “Monkey Wrench” by Foo Fighters ➡️ This song speaks to my refusal to fit into the boxes that people have always tried to put me in — trying to turn me into some kind of inspiration to make my situation make more sense to them. I have really tried to make my own way and don’t buy into other people’s ideas of who I am and what my life was going to be.
🌓Ashley: “You Are the Moon” by The Hush Sound ➡️ This song speaks to the fact that things I do are good or cool but I tend to only see it through the lens of imperfections, and that applies to my art, my work, my relationships. It’s all-encompassing. I do sometimes need that external reminder.
