One thing I love about music is that it is kind of like a time machine, just listening to a song can bring you back to some of the best times of your life.
If I hear ANY of these songs I will instantly smile from ear to ear and most likely start belting out all the words. I love music I can sing and dance to! Music is supposed to make you feel good, so why not get crazy and have some fun whenever your favorite songs come on!!
"I Wanna Dance with Somebody"Whitney Houston
This is my go to karaoke song. I LOVE KARAOKE and I LOVE WHITNEY HOUSTON!! If there is a karaoke machine around and they have this song, you better get ready because I will sing.
"All I Want for Christmas is You"Mariah Carey
This is a college throw back... Me and my friend, Alyssa, listened to this song year round. It doesn't have to be the Holidays to listen to the best Mariah Carey song of all time. I'll belt this song out at the top of my lungs any time, I do not care where I am or what I am doing.
So, this song is in Icelandic and it is b-e-a-utiful! If you look at the translation its about a "staring elf", which would ruin some songs, but not this one. I don't care what Sigur Ros is singing about, it's gorgeous. I am legitimately considering walking down the aisle to this song. It's perfect.
They don't call Beyonce "Queen B" for nothing, she is magical. It's hard to pick just one Beyonce song as a favorite, but every time Love on Top comes on I am dancing and singing and feel like a superstar. This is another one of those "watch out" songs because as soon as I hear it I am singing and dancing like a fool and I don't care who see's.
My fiance, Garrett, has this song on a random mix CD in his car and whenever we go on long drives I am the happiest girl when he puts this song on. It's just so happy and upbeat!
"Dust on the Bottle"David Lee Murphy
I don't really have a story behind this one, I have just always loved it! I can remember sitting in the back seat of my parents car listening to it on the radio and singing along. I'm pretty sure it wasn't until a couple years ago that I figured out the words were "Dust on the bottle" and not "Dust on the bottom".
Ummm 1. if you don't know this song, now you do 2. if you haven't seen A Goofy Movie please do yourself a favor and watch it asap... SO AMAZING! Me and my best friend Mackenzie are a little obsessed with this song, she's the one that reminded me to put it on this list because it's epic. If I had one ridiculous wish it would be that Powerline was real and I could sit front row at his concert and he would pull me up on stage to sing Eye 2 Eye and I would do the perfect cast. If you don't know what I'm talking about THEN RENT A GOOFY MOVIE!!
"Made in America"Toby Keith
It was September 4th, 2011 and a group of my friends were at a Toby Keith concert for my friend Jacob's birthday... it was POURING rain and we were covered head to toe in mud and, as miserable as I was, it was actually one of the best nights of my life. This song came on, we were all singing and everything in that moment was perfect.
"Ridin' Solo"Jason DeRulo
This is another song that I don't have a reason for loving, I just do!!
"Will You Be There"Michael Jackson
"Free Willy" came out when I was about 5 years old and I remember wanting to see it because of this song... my grandparents took me and I made them stay through the credits so I could hear the entire song. Now, 21 years later, it is still amazing.
