So you've seen "A Star Is Born" and now you can't stop listening to "Shallow" on repeat (or at least I can't). Although you could replay the soundtrack over and over, you're looking to branch out into some similar music—but where do you start? I had this same dilemma. Lucky for you, I decided to do a bit of rediscovery and digging to compile a little list of some stuff you might enjoy that has a similar sound and feel to the songs from the film. These artists should definitely help you get into that same mood without forcing you to relive the fifty thousand emotions you will surely feel after seeing this movie.

The Civil Wars

This is probably one of my favorite artists in general. The Civil Wars is a male/female duo whose folk-like songs are simply stunning. They have stuff that ranges from heartfelt ballads to more upbeat tunes. Unfortunately, they don't make music anymore but Joy Williams (one of the members of the group) still does and she just released a couple of songs pretty recently.

Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors

This band I discovered while looking for artists to include on this list. After listening to a few of their songs, I knew they would make a great addition. They also have a pretty folk-like sound about them, but with a bit of mellow pop blended in. The lead singer has a wonderful voice, too.

Taylor John Williams

I already had a song by this guy on my Spotify playlist which has the sound I was looking for to include here so I assumed his other songs must too. I was right. Williams was actually a contestant on "The Voice" and now has a couple of albums and EPs he has released on his own. I could listen to him sing all day. His songs remind me a lot of the sweet, simple songs from "A Star Is Born"; especially Bradley Cooper's "Maybe It's Time".

First Aid Kit

This is another artist I had listened to a little before and felt would be right at home on this list. This female duo's music is hard to pinpoint to just one genre but it definitely has tones of folk, country, and pop (just like "A Star Is Born"). Their voices have that sort of 'twang' (I don't know how to describe it) that reminds you of good country songs.

City and Colour

Another favorite of mine, this artist has an amazing voice and music made for singing along to. The use of acoustic instrumentation in all of the songs makes each feel beautifully raw and emotional. The singer, Dallas Green, probably has one of the best voices in the music industry (in my humble opinion).

I hope you enjoy some of this music! It all reminds me of the same general feeling "A Star Is Born" gave me. If you haven't seen it yet, you definitely should. Just be prepared to cry and think about it for an entire week afterward.

11 Things You Understand If You Hate Physical Contact

We currently live in a world where EVERYONE LIKES TO TOUCH EACH OTHER. People enjoy hugs, high fives, tapping others on the shoulder, pokes, ect. For someone like you and me (I'm assuming you too since you clicked on this article), this is the WORST thing in the world. Whenever I think of someone touching me (even just a poke) without my permission my reaction is like Sofia Vergara in Modern Family.

I mean, when I take that love languages quiz, physical touch is always on the bottom of my preferences. So I thought to my self, you know I can't be the only person in the world that hates physical touching. So here are 11 things every person who hates physical touch will understand:


1. When people tickle you

I don't care that it's just for fun and jokes; I'm not laughing because I want to, you are literally forcing me to laugh. I hate you, get your greasy hands off of me before I make you get them off of me.


2. When people think they need to tap your shoulder to get your attention

As if simply saying "Hey" followed by my name wasn't enough. I don't need your grubby little fingers touching me. Now I'm annoyed with you before this conversation even started, what do you want?


3. When someone you barely know reaches in for a hug

I don't know who the heck you're thinking you're about to hug because it sure isn't going to be me. Hugs are reserved for people I know well and like, not you. Okay release me now, I am not enjoying this. LET ME GO.


4. When people tell you that you aren't an affectionate person

Are you aware there are ways to show my affection without constantly being all over you like a koala bear? Yes, I'm affectionate, hop off.


5. When someone is in your personal space

We could be best friends, we could be complete strangers. We could be lovers, I could hate your guts. We could be in private, we could be in public. I don't care what the situation is, if you're in my personal space uninvited GET OUT. There is no reason to be so close to me unwarranted.


6. You don't know how to comfort people

When you see an upset loved one, most people think they you should comfort then by pulling them into a long lasting hug. But, that's the kind of things that your nightmares are literally made out of. So, you stand there confused how you should comfort your friend/relative while also not sacrificing your touch moral code.


7. When people say you "look like you could use a hug"

Um no. I never could use one, get off of me. I will let you know when I want one.


8. When you're hugging someone wondering how soon you can release

Please end my suffering.


9. When you arrive at a social gathering and people rush to greet you with hugs

Let's not.

10. When you try to leave a social gathering by just waving to get out of goodbye hugs

Please no one make me hug you.


11. That one person who is allowed to hug you/touch you

This person, typically a significant other or best friend, gets to break all the "no touch" rules and we gladly accept their hugs and cuddles and public displays of affection. But only them, no one can copy them.

Poetry On Odyssey: I'll Miss You

Don't leave me

I'll miss you when you go away

I'll miss you when you start to walk out the door

I'll miss you when the door shuts behind you


Please don't leave me

Please don't make me feel this pain

Please don't make me wait again


I need you to know how much I care

I need you to know what this does to me

I need you to know I wish you could stay


So please don't go

But don't let me hold you back

I know this is the best for you

Just know I'll miss you
