It’s my birthday month so I’m doing a theme this month. This Sunday I turn 28 (September 23rd) and so I am bringing you lists of 28 things!
Last week I did a post – 28 Things About Me – just to introduce myself a little bit. The very first thing I said about myself in last week’s post was that music is incredibly important to me. It’s a major constant in my life – whether I’m going to see a band, looking for new music, or even just casually listening – it’s a big part of my life and a big part of me.

So I have made a list of songs I just really love. As I was making this list, I realized what a deep well of favorite songs I have cultivated. To truly encompass every one of my all-time favorite songs and then narrow it down to 28 songs seems nearly impossible. There are just so many songs that mean different things to me for different reasons. So this list is not that list. It’s a list of songs that I just really love and want you to know about if you don’t already know them.
These are songs that make me feel something and I hope you enjoy them!
