I remember a time when the music I listened to was mainly from Pop artists — Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, and the like. I was probably around the age of 7-8 back then and I thought I was so cool.
Specifically, one of my two favourite songs were Spice Girl’s 2 Become 1 and Britney Spear’s Lucky:
2 Become 1 by Spice Girls
Lucky by Britney Spears
The song Lucky is pretty harmless, as Spears sings of her loneliness. However, now that I’m older, I now know the meaning of 2 Become 1, which is quite shocking to know of since I sang it quite often as a child (go read the meaning here).
Anyhow, around the time I was 9 years old, I started to listen to R&B music, enjoying the smoothness of the music. And again, I didn’t realize the meaning of most of the songs that I listened to, which I now most certainly do.
Nowadays, I listen to all sorts of music genres. But it really all depends on the mood.
Below are two songs that I enjoy putting on repeat due to their meanings.
Battleships by Daughtry
Can’t Stop by OneRepublic
Eh, this post felt very all over the place.
