Hey, Internet! How are you?
I was feeling super inspired by music today, so I’ll post bits of songs that I really like/have really liked in the past.
And…it’s a Monday, so it totally fits!
1. Burn by Ellie Goulding
I just heard this like maybe five minutes ago, and I’m already in total LOVE with this song. I always feel like Ellie Goulding’s songs have a sort of meaning behind its words, instead of just slapping together catchy words and tossing it into a pop tune. But this song…I love it. I can totally tell it will be one of my pump-up songs for NaNoWriMo this year.
2. Young and Beautiful by Lana del Rey
This was the song of my summer. For reasons unknown, it was so inspiring, so moving, and it helped me pull through my last rewrite. (It was HARD. 45,000 words in two weeks. It took nearly everything I had to grind my teeth and drag myself through the doubt, the fear…)
It’s one of those songs I listened to over and over and over again, and I remembered this clearly; headphones jammed into my ears, arms sticky with sweat against my sides, furiously typing away at 3 in the morning, while Lana’s words and songs stirred something inside me and fed me strength.
3. Conquest of Spaces by Woodkid.
I recently started listening to this song, and the lyrics–and the music–really spoke to me. Again, I think it might be part of my playlist for NaNoWriMo. All-around epic song!
And that’s it for a Music Monday! What are your pump-up songs? Tell me below in the comments!
