1.Opening Credits
Song and Artist: New Soul, Yael Naim
Explanation of why you chose this song: I chose this song because its beat and instrumentsremind me of a normal day walking down the street. I also like the following lyrics: “…findingmyself making every possible mistake…” and “finding trust and love is not always easy tomake.I think both of these represent things that I have come to realize about my own life.
2.I’ve Got You Under My Skin
Song and Artist: “Tell You Something,” Alicia Keys and “Dear Jamie” by Hellogoodbye
Explanation of why you chose this song: I love the Alicia Keys song because it is almost as if she is whispering her hidden truth to the audience. I also love “it’ll all mean nothing / if Ican’t say something / before it all goes away” because it’s true—if you can’t say something tothat person, does it really mean anything? I love the Hellogoodbye song for the reason that itshows all of the insecurities of telling that person you like them. My favorite line is “should Itrust the postage due / to deliver my heart to you?” because it shows how much he loves herand how he doesn’t trust anything to tell how he feels besides this song.
3.Let Me Clear My Throat
Song and Artist: “Bad Reputation,” Joan Jett
Explanation of why you chose this song: This song’s beat definitely helps get my adrenalineflowing. I also love the lyrics “A girl can do what she wants to do and that’s what I’m gonnado” because it shows the determination and stubbornness that I definitely possess.
4.Tainted Love
Song and Artist: “Breakin’ Dishes,” Rihanna
Explanation of why you chose this song: I love this song because its beat reminds me of aliteral fight. I also love that she is angry, speaking it, and showing no remorse. The song’sintended audience is in the wrong and she shows them that: “I’m roasting marshmallows onthe fire / what I’m burning is your attire.” 
5.Take a Bow
Song and Artist: “Touch the Sky,” Kanye West
Explanation of why you chose this song: This song doesn’t really seem to be about someone’ssuccesses, but the beginning intro (a sample of a classic song) definitely has the feeling of triumph. I also think the line, “I think I died in an accident / ‘cause this must be heaven” isdefinitely comparable to what you feel like when you succeed at something.
Ain’t Too Proud to Beg
Song and Artist: “The Heart of the Matter” India.Arie
Explanation of why you chose this song: I love this song as a song of reconciliation for somany reasons. First of all, the song has “forgiveness” in its lyrics. Second, the song’s beat isslow and I feel it mirrors that slow process of coming to terms with someone you’ve hadissues with. Additionally, the tempo reflects feelings of remorse. Finally, I love the following:
These times are so uncertainThere's a yearning undefinedAnd people filled with rageWe all need a little tendernessHow can love survive in such a graceless age
And the trust and self-assurance that lead to happinessThey're the very things we kill, I guessPride and competition cannot fill these empty armsAnd the work they put between us,You know it doesn't keep us warmI've been trying to live without you nowBut I miss you, babyThe more I know, the less I understandAnd all the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn againI've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the MatterBut my will gets weakAnd my heart is so shatteredBut I think it's about forgivenessForgivenessEven if, even if you don't love me anymoreAll the people in your life who've come and goneThey let you down, you know they hurt your prideBetter put it all behind you; cause life goes onYou keep carryin' that anger, it'll eat you up inside
Song and Artist: “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk,” Rufus Wainright
Explanation of why you chose this song: Whenever I’m in a sad mood, I play this song. Itsbeat and music offers me sympathy and consolation, because it mirrors what I’m feeling. Thelyrics discuss things that are bad for you, and usually when I’m upset, it’s over something thatis bad for me: jealousy, impatience, anger, etc. I especially connect with “it isn’t verysmart/tends to make one part so broken-hearted” and “I’m just a little bit / Tower of Pisa /Whenever I see ya / so please be kind / if I’m a mess.The feelings I have make me broken-hearted and a mess, and this song speaks to those things.
8.Canned Heat
Song and Artist: “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” WHAM! And “Bust a Move,” Young MC
Explanation of why you chose this song: The WHAM! song just makes me smile. I want todance like a fool when I hear this. The Young MC song has an awesome beat to it, and I can just imagine having a dance-off to it.
9.Remember the Time
Song and Artist: “Such Great Heights,” The Postal Service
Explanation of why you chose this song: Hearing this song constantly brings me back to pastrelationships. The line, “I’m thinking it’s a sign / that the freckles in our eyes are mirrorimages/and when we kiss they’re perfectly aligned.” I hear the song and I have flashbacks tomy past relationships. Hearing it brings back all sorts of emotions, both good and bad. I feelas though this song in both lyrics and in music represents the feelings associated with pastrelationships, because you remember all of the positive things about that person and yourrelationship, but you also can not forget the ways that you were hurt by the relationship.
10.Walking on Sunshine
Song and Artist: “Walking on Sunshine,” Katrina and the Waves
Explanation of why you chose this song: This song just makes me think of sunshine, smiling,and having a good time with my friends.
