1) blink-182's "All of This." I've mentioned this song before, but seriously, I cannot get enough of it. I got the CD a few weeks ago and I've listened to this song nearly one hundred times. It's a simple song and the verses tend to repeat, but you can feel what the singer's going through. That, paired with Tom Delonge's bridge of "Use me, Holly, come on and use me" gets me every time.
2) Demi Lovato's "Unbroken." This song is just perfection. It's edgy but hopeful, strong but vulnerable. You can hear the power and determination in her voice. I love it because when she gets to the chorus and tells her guy, "I'm gonna love you like I've never been broken," I want to sound as sure as she is about falling in love and not worrying about if he's there to catch her or not. It's inspiring but still such a great song to dance to.
3) Lady Antebellum's "As You Turn Away." This song is just heartbreaking. I've listened to a lot of sad songs since Goatboy and I broke up, and this is one of the few that manages to capture what I felt during that time but in a way that makes it relatable to everyone. My heart always clenches hearing Hillary's voice crack when she sings, "The door is closing and I just can't change it..."
