Nickelback “If Today was Your Last Day”

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

Fleet Foxes, “Mykonos”

‘And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made’


Corrine Bailey Rae, “Put Your Records On”

Summer came like cinnamon, So sweet
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.
Maybe sometimes, we’ve got it wrong, but it’s alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don’t you hesitate

Beyonce – “Run the World (Girls)”

It’s hot up in here
DJ don’t be scared to run this, run this back
I’m reppin’ for the girls who taking over the world
Let me raise a glass for the college grads


Weezer – “Island in the Sun”

When you’re on a holiday
You can’t find the words to say
All the things that come to you
And I want to feel it too

On an island in the sun
We’ll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can’t control my brain

Frou Frou, “Let Go

So let go, let go
Jump in
Oh well, whatcha waiting for?
It’s alright
Cause there’s beauty in the breakdown
