Reel Around the Sun – Riverdance

This is magic. A soft intro leads into some of the best sounding Irish dance music ever recorded. Not much needs to be said. ❤ Below, is the same song to dancing with the great Michael Flatley, because it’s just as amazing to watch these incredible dancers make such amazing sounds with such powerful footwork.

Have Everything by David Dunn

This one speaks to my soul. I’ve felt the closest to God singing this song in my head, dark in the night air. It’s beat and rhythm keep my mind engaged to the beautiful bittersweet like melody, and the words are so lyrical and straightforward. It’s a song about giving it all back to God, which is so hard to do but feels so good each time I do. This song moves me and I’m so thankful for it because I can’t find that feeling in most Christian songs at all. ❤

Off to the Races by Lana Del Rey (NSFW)

Lana Del Rey has been a favorite of mine for over six years. Her sound is so addictive and different and intoxicating. I recently rediscovered my love for this song when I put in the CD album of her album from the library into my new car’s CD player and it started playing. I’m listening to it on repeat right now going to work and back because I just absolutely love the beat, her voice, the unique energy.

Kaom’s Dream from Path of Exile

My boyfriend and I have been playing Path of Exile together since the beginning of 2017; being a long distance couple has led to a search for things to play together online when we skype, as a way to interact together when we’re so physically apart. We’ve loved playing the online multiplayer fantasy game Path of Exile together, and I discovered it’s incredibly interesting soundtrack.

They’re often very long tracks and very atmospheric, but it you’re a writer like me, that’s great news. I love songs that aren’t too short, that you can get lost in. This is one of my favorite tracks so far. It’s eery, heavy, and dark, yet uses enough percussion to keep the beat steady and engaging. I love how tingling this track sounds; you can taste the smog in the air and feel a growing apprehension build. Then it softens out towards the end, mellowing and quiet, yet still eery and sad. It delicious.
