I have been so excited about this post because I LOVE music. Settling on five songs was hard, but I’ve decided to go with 5 songs from different genres that always put a smile on my face.
The 5 songs that made the list are:
1.All Falls Down – Kanye West
“It seem we livin’ the American Dream
But the people highest up got the lowest self-esteem
The prettiest people do the ugliest things
For the road to riches and diamond rings
We shine because they hate us
Floss ’cause they degrade us
We tryna buy back our 40 acres”
2.I’m Your Friend – Gregor Salto ft. Chappell
“Still your tears to me are no taboo
‘Cause when you cry, it hurts me too.
I can’t say I’ve been in your shoes
But I’d love to bring some good new”
3.Where I Sleep – Emeli Sandé
“There’s nothing I won’t steal or borrow
I’ll travel on a boat or airplane
I’ll explore a world of sorrow
‘Cause when I find you I know, I know I’ma be OK”
4.Love of My Life – Erykah Badu
“But that is all behind me
‘Cause now there is no other
My love is his and his is mine
A friend became the…”
5.Nothing’s Real but Love – Rebecca Ferguson
“I put it all away
Holding it back for a rainy day
But what if that day don’t come
I need love”
Let me know of your top 5 songs as I continue on this challenge.
PS: My favourite African songs deserve their own post, which will come soon.
