Songs You Need in Your Life | Britt Recommends

songs you need in your life

Oooh what’s this? A little something different over here! I love music, but don’t listen to it near as much as I used to back in high school. I always loved to explore and listen to artists that were “undiscovered.” Fun fact: I actually was listening to and loved Colbie Caillat and Taylor Swift way before they were famous. Thank you, Myspace.

Anyway, I thought I’d share some of my favorite songs with ya’ll that I don’t see many people talk about. I’ll throw in random “For when…” tidbits on some of the songs. Some will be serious, others will be completely off the wall and just well…you know. Hopefully ya’ll will love them just as much as I do! PS) There is a playlist of the songs at the end of this post. Please let me know if you end up liking one of them or already do!

    1. I was really into them during high school! Especially McFly… I had the biggest obsession with them & Busted. I hope you end up liking some of the songs! I’d be more than happy to give some more pop rock recs! 🙂 You’d definitely like The Maine!
