Back to School: Songs to get you through


I remember the first week of high school this girl coming up to my best friend and I and saying that the next 5 years were going to go by so fast and be the best 5 years of our lives. At the time, I laughed and carried on my day but looking back that random girl was so unbelievably right. In high school, you make some truly incredible friends and create some incredible memories. If I could go back in time and relive any point in my life so far, it would probably be to when I was 14.

Don't get me wrong, though, school was hard! People can be so mean, so can the teachers sometime too. You get into fights and scuff your knee's. You fail tests and argue with your parents about how much effort you put in. You fall deeply in love in the blink of an eye and then out of it just as fast.

And in all honestly, I think the main thing that got me through school in one piece was music. Music is always going to be something that is there for you when no one else is, or understands what your going through like no one else. So, I wanted to create a playlist that might help you at some point through your high school/college/university life.

For when it feels like no one is on your side...

Taylor Swift - Mean
Randy Newman - You've Got a Friend in Me
Taylor Swift - The Outside
Lion King - I Just Can't Wait to be King
Ed Sheeran - You Need Me, I Don't Need You

For when your heart is broken...

Taylor Swift - Fifteen
Wheatus - Teenage Dirtbag
All American Rejects - Gives You Hell
Kelly Clarkson - Because of You
Haim - Better Off

For when you're feeling low...

Sara Bareilles - Brave
Rachel Platten - Fight Song
Pink - Raise Your Glass
Olly Murs - I'm OK
Taylor Swift - Shake It Off

For when you've lost motivation...

Taylor Swift - Change
All time Low - Weightless
Daniel Bedingfield - Gotta Get Thru This
Destiny's Child - Survivor
Muse - Survival

For when it's all over...

Taylor Swift - Long Live
Avril Lavigne - Here's To Never Growing Up
Fall Out Boy - Thanks for the Memories
Katy Perry - Teenage Dream
Greenday - Good Riddance (Time of your life)

There is a song for every moment of your life and at the most desperate times can really help you along. I hope I've created a playlist that can help you in some way or another in the nect few years. I tried my best to get a good variety of music and not just fill it with Taylor Swift. Honestly though, there's a Taylor song for every emotion!

Love always,
Melissa
