Music for Your Soul

Last week I received a super sweet little love package in the mail from my girls Cassie & Kim. It was a precious note from them telling me how awesome I am and a perfect mix cd to shake off my breakup blues. I wanted to share with you guys some of the songs on there that I've been listening to non-stop. It helps to power through these kinds of things with music sometimes.
 
1. NSYNC - Bye, Bye, Bye
I cracked up when I heard this was the first song on the cd. But really it's so fitting! I've always been an NSYNC girl {hello Justin Timberlake!} so it really took me back to when I was younger. Plus, it's just a fun song.
 
2. Joan Jett- I Hate Myself For Loving You
Self explanatory here. Joan Jett is awesome and she can help a girl get pissed off!

3. Kelly Clarkson - Stronger
Power ballad for a girl with a broken heart. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, Kelly is speaking to my soul.

4. Pat Benetar - Heartbreaker
Both of my parents are big fans of Pat, so I grew up listening to her music. Again, the rock music definitely helps to channel some anger and I like it!

5. Cee Lo Green - F*ck You
This one made me laugh too, but I love it!

These are just a few of my favorites from this awesome mix. I love those girls for thinking of me! What you're favorite kind of music to channel your emotions??

Music heals my soul. But most of the time I want old country music I can sing every word to. Joe Diffie really helps every situation. : )

Is Beyonce's Irreplacable on there?! That's always a good one. I made one of my best friends a "To the left, to the left" box after her and her hunny broke up in college. "Everything you own in the box to the left!" Good place to throw all the junk that reminded her of him into.

Of course ex bf came to visit one day and saw it...needless to say, ex bf doesn't like me anymore! Oh well!

I love Beyonce's "Best Thing I Never Had" that is a good breakup blues song ;)

Look up Joan Jett's version of "Love Is All Around" ... the Mary Tyler Moore Show theme song....... it's AMAZING, and I think you'll love it :)

These areal awesome songs! I love how music can help you heal! I tend to lean on Avril when I'm needing help. She and I have spent a lot of time with her during break ups!
