This is tricky because about two years ago I lost my music library when my laptop crashed (and the data was unretrievable), so I had to transfer my library via my iPod to my new MacBook.
However, there is a song that I know for a fact was one of the very first songs I ever downloaded, and it is one that I had on my very first iPod – a pink iPod mini that I got in 2005/2006.
That song is….
Sunshine to the Rain – Miri Ben-Ari ft. Scarface & Anthony Hamilton
I love the violin track in this song. It is amazing. ❤ Just sayin’
(skip to 0:20 and disregard the annoying intro)
Well, this band has been a favourite of mine for about 10 years now. I even saw them perform in concert when I was 16/17 years old, and they were awesome! There album, From Under The Cork Tree, was definitely an album I would play on repeat, and especially helped me get through those moments of teen angst!
Fall Out Boy’s Pete Went and Patrick Stump were probably the a couple of the first non-boy band, yet still male, musicians that I really learned the name of! I even had Fall Out Boy posters on my bedroom wall, right next to The Killers and the All-American Rejects, who were my other favourite bands of that time.
So, what song should I pick? Well, let’s go with the first Fall Out Boy song I heard, because it’s the song that started it all…
Here is “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down”
I’m just going to let this song, and its lyrics, speak for its self. Simply put, it is one that strikes an emotional chord and definitely leaves me “misty-eyed”. ❤
