Gabrielle Aplin– Keep pushing Me

I related to this song the most this week. The lyrics of “Keep Pushing Me” by Gabrielle Aplin could have been written for me.  I specifically can relate to the lyrics “I won’t stay, but I can’t leave. Some twisted sense of loyalty, and you make me love the things I hate”. In addition to the relatable lyrics, Gabrielle Aplin’s voice is amazing and the music is impressive. At the moment, this song is the story of my life.

Tom Waits– Hold On

This song served as a sort of inspiration for me. “Hold On” is one of my favorite Tom Waits songs.  I can be content with listening to it over and over. The song is definitely worth checking out, whether you’re going through hard times or not.

The Avett Brothers– The Ballad of Love and Hate

“The Ballad of Love and Hate” by The Avett Brothers is an emotionally stripped down song about the process and feelings a person goes through when accepting  love. The song starts off with “Hate” resisting “Love’s”  charms and stating “”No one here cares if you go or you stay. I barely even noticed that you were away. I’ll see you or I won’t, whatever”. Throughout the song “Hate” is worn down by the appeal that “Love” has. Eventually, “Hate” changes his tune and begs “Love, I’m sorry, and she says, ‘What for? I’m your and that’s it, Whatever. I should not have been gone for so long. I’m yours and that’s it, forever”. This song is truly one of my favorites from The Avett Brothers.
