Music to my ears…

I love this weeks prompt for Monday Listicles.

Cassie from Our Foto Friendly Family gave us this weeks prompt.

10 songs…

I love music, I love to sing loudly and off-key and I love to dance to music.

I also love this prompt.

Here are 10 of my favorite songs in no particular order:

1. Adele “Set Fire to the Rain”

Need I say more?

2. Neon Trees “Everybody Talks”

Just love this one right now. I catch myself singing along and bobbing around my seat!

3. Guns’n’Roses “November Rain”

Gets me every time. And that guitar solo by Slash… no words needed. (Also, the first song I slow danced to with my first boyfriend… I was 13. Sigh!)

4. Natalie Imbruglia “Torn”

My summer song the summer I graduated high school. A friend I worked with dubbed it my song! Still love it and still sing along!

5. BonJovi “Always”

I love the whole Cross Roads album. Really, my first foray into all thing Bon Jovi. I fell in love with the band. I still remember sitting on a bus full of 8th graders going on a class trip and driving by an arena where they were set to perform and wishing I could go.

6. Muse “Starlight”

Why this song? Where do I start? I can’t get enough of Muse and have “Eclipse” and Stephenie Meyer to thank for bringing their music into my life. This is by far one of my fave songs. It was my ringtone for quite some time and I put it back every so often.

7. Orianthi “According to You”

She was a back up musician on what was supposed to be Micheal Jackson’s big comeback tour. I love this song. Got the whole album and wish she was more known… I think she’s pretty incredible.

8. Madonna “Like a Prayer”

Gotta throw in some old school Madonna. Still some of my faves to dance to.

9. Sarah McLachlan “Elsewhere”

I still remember the first time I got into hubby’s car when we started dating and Sarah McLachlan was playing. He had me right there!!! This is by far one of my favorites of hers. It just reaches a place inside me. I can’t explain. It just is.

10. Carter Burwell “Love, Death, Birth”

The theme for the Twilight Saga, specifically Breaking Dawn Pt. 1. I love listening to this at night when the house is quiet and I’m working away on blog posts. (Like now.)
I see images from the movies, moments shared by Bella and Edward… Isn’t that what music is supposed to do, paint a picture in your mind?


The following two tabs change content below.


Susi is a wife, mom, photography lover and fan of all things social media, especially Instagram. She was born and raised in Germany, moved to the US with her family when she was 16 and (finally) became an American citizen in January 2012. She lives with her family in South Florida and loves the beach and never gets tired of watching another pretty sunset.


  1. I love me some Bonjovi too! Woohoo! Great pics :)

  2. November Rain is an epic song. Seriously, I forgot all about it. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Love the variety here.

  4. Bon Jovi is my all time favourite. Actually, his song “Thank you for loving me” was our wedding song :)

    • Definitely very happy with the topic. It was fun to put together and November Rain was one of the first songs that popped into my head.

  7. I think I only knew about half of those!

  8. Like a Prayer is probably my favorite Madonna song – so good. I loved making this list, too – and thinking about all the memories associated with different songs!

  9. I love Sarah McLachlan and completely forgot. I used to listen to the Mirrorball CD over and over.

  10. Sparkly Vampire writer did not introduce you to MUSE, I did! I had “Uprising” and “Hysteria” on a cd and you said they were “another of your wierdo bands Honey” :)

  11. Ah :) Bon Jovi and GnR :) Great list!

  12. I had never seen the “torn” video (living under a rock, I know). Wow. This is some selection you got there, Susi… nice!!!

  13. Ah, great list! I like so many songs from here… Some oldies definitely bring back great memories. I don’t think I can even come up with ten songs–so hard and too many to choose from! (I watched November Rain–it’s been a while :) )

  14. Old school Madonna rocks! And if I had to choose a Muse song, I’d be One =)

  15. BonJovi!! I just went to their concert a couple years ago. They were awesome!

  16. Love the Neon Trees. Great pick. And I wonder, too, why Orianthi did not have a follow-up to that single. I thought it was great. She needs a new manager or agent. Ellen
