Tune In Tuesday: My Teen Years {Vol. 1}

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads This month Tune in Tuesday is all about the teen years. Now, my teen years weren't that long ago, but I still have a few good throw back jams for you guys.

The Year I chose to go within this week is 2005. I was 15 years old and spent a great deal of time driving around with my friends blasting our favorite music. Well, let's be honest, I still do that. We even still blast the same music on occasion.

Coldplay - Fix You


Favorite Line: And I will try to fix you / Tears stream down your face, I promise you I will learn from my mistakes

Where do I even start? This song is still in my top 5 songs of all time. I will never get sick of it - ever. Just listening to it makes me want to break out in tears; I don't even know why, I don't know if it makes me happy or sad, it just makes me feel.

Jack Johnson - Better Together


Favorite Line: love is the answer, at least for most of the questions in my heart. Why are we here? Where do we go and how come it's so hard?

Picking a favorite song from In Between Dreams is like choosing a favorite child. I LOVE the entire CD. But.. I had to pick one, so I went with Better Together. I remember buying this CD with two of my friends. We were poor teenagers, and apparently a $10 CD would break the bank, so we split it 3 ways. That CD traveled back and forth so many times it's ridiculous. But seriously check it out - it's still my favorite Jack Johnson CD and still one of my favorite CD's period.

Jesse McCartney - Beautiful Soul


Favorite Line: I know that you are something special, to you I'd be always faithful

Yes. I did go there. Jesse McCartney ladies and gents. This was one of those songs you didn't want to admit to loving, but every time it came on you'd sing along. Now I'll admit to loving it - it's still on my  ipod to this day. It's certainly not Leavin' but it will do :)

Howie Day - Collide


Favorite Line: I'm quiet  you know, you make a first impression. I 've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind.

Dudes. This song gives me freaking chills. I'm serious; it's still one of my favorite songs. I don't know what it is about it, but goodness. It's perfect wrapped in a pretty pop package. I'm not sure when exactly this was released - it says 2003 on amazon, but... it's on the top 100 pop hits of 2005 list. So I'm going to go with that. Because, I ADORE this song.

The Killers - Mr. Brightside


Favorite Line: I just can't look it's killing me and taking control

You know those songs that transport you back to a certain time? Like they are almost a soundtrack to your life movie? Well this is one of those songs. Every time I hear it I'm back laying on my best friends bed waiting for her to get ready. This was playing on the radio and she was singing along while she was pulling clothes out to get dressed. I remember thinking about how much I adored her and how great of a friend she really was. . This song will forever make me think of her.

Bright Eyes - First Day of My Life


Favorite Line: Yours is the first face that I saw, think I was blind before I met you / These things take forever, I especially am slow, but I realized that I need you and I wondered if I could come home

Still love it.

Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten


Favorite Line: Release your inhibitions, feel the rain on your skin

I love her. And this song, it's lovely isn't it? Plus it was the theme song to the hills. That's a teen years through back as well.

What great songs! Oh my goodness, I used to be in love with Jesse McCartney! I included that song in last weeks post =) I still have it on my ipod too (it's a keeper!) Collide by Howie Day is amazing, and of course Natasha Bedingfield is great!
