Playlist Thursday: 'Til the End of Time

Thank you for joining me for another edition of Playlist Thursday! If you missed last week's post, you have to check it out. The Local Flavor post featured songs from the area I was raised and currently live in. This week, Pavement Runner challenged us to share songs that have been on our playlists FOREVER and will never be removed...thus the title of my post :)

Let's get this things started, shall we?

Something Old

Artist: Earth, Wind, and Fire

Title: September

Side Note: My mom has an undying love for Earth Wind & Fire. Their music is guaranteed to make her stop what she's doing and bust a move. She passed that love onto me and I have no shame in saying I can't live without them!
*Additional side note: Their concert was the first concert my mom and I attended together!

Quotable: "Ba de ya, say that you remember. Ba de ya, dancing in September. Ba de ya, golden dreams were shiny days."

Something Current

Artist: Gym Class Heroes

Title: The Fighter

Side Note: There have been quite a few things that have happened in my life that would have knocked any other person down for the count. I have chosen to get up, fight, and continue to be a threat. The first time I heard this song, I sat down and cried quietly because I felt like it was written for me.

Quotable: "Ya ever feel like your train of thought's been derailed? That's when you press on - Lee nails."

Something to Consider

Artist: The Pretenders

Title: I'll Stand By You

Side Note: Many years ago, my friend played this song for me when I was going through a difficult time. She told me that she felt like the song described perfectly what she wanted me to know about how she felt about me, what I was going through, and our friendship.

Quotable: "When the night falls on you, baby. You're feeling all alone. You won't be on your own."

Now it's your turn - what songs will never be deleted from your playlist?


  1. Ha ha, The Fighter came on my shuffle earlier today during cardio and I... um... may have shed a tiny tear (I'm two weeks out, OK?!) ;D Love it. Great lyrics. "Til the referee rings the bell...."

    1. LOL!! Tears fell only because we both were in prep and not because we're softies ;)

  2. Great songs. I love the song "The Fighter". I feel the same way. :)

    1. It's one of the best songs! I feel invincible when I hear it.

  3. Just added The Fighter on my playlist, thanks!

  4. Great songs... but these made me sad. Glad they are able to give you "strength" when you need it. Cheers.

    1. No sadness!! :) Plus, how can you feel sad with Earth Wind & Fire dancin' around the stage in that first video??

  5. I had to come back and add a few of my absolute favs:
    Supermassive Black Hole By Muse
    Bring Me to Life Evanesence
    Mirror By Lil Wayne
    Runaway Baby By Bruno Mars
    Some old, some newer, and not so new.

  6. I love I'll stand by you - but now I have a couple more to check out on my playlist!
