For some, music is the way escape the reality of life. Depending on the person or the mood, will depend what music one listens to. For me, I've always loved music.
Whether it was playing the ukulele, piano or causally jamming out to any song that comes on the radio, music has always been a priority in my life. I listen to all genre's music, from country to rap to the classics to really anything. It just depends on the day, the time, and the activity I'm doing to decide what song I will jam out to then.
But for the last couple months, these 10 songs are constantly on my playlists and always making me happy. I hope these songs do the same for you.
1. Meet Me in the Woods by Lord Huron
This song has been one of my favorites for years. I've seen Lord Huron in concert twice and each time they continue to surprise me with their musical abilities. This song and their whole album is one that I would recommend to everyone. Particularly, this song is one to start off a road trip.
2. Budapest by George Ezra
This is another great song that I have heard a million times and loved it, yet never knew what it was called and never pursued finding it. Now that I have found it, I have become so obsessed with it. It's just one of the those songs that puts you in the best mood. Whether its playing loudly on your headphones or it's playing in your car on the way to the beach, it's a song that you can always depend on.
3. Withdrawal by Max Frost
Wow, Max Frost is amazing. I was first introduced to him by his song "Adderall" by my Bestfriend and I've been in love with his music ever since. His voice is so different and the instrumental parts of his songs are just so great. This song is one that you will be singing along to in no time.
4. Last Summer by The Motel Brothers
This song is most definitely in my top 3. It's a song that you listen to and become overwhelmed with good old memories from the summers before. The beat in the back allows you to just take a breather and chill for a second. This song Is perfect for a nice beach day.

This is the right song.
9. Bambi by Tokyo Police Club
This song isn't like the rest of the music I listen to on a daily basis and it did take me a little bit to get used to it. But after listening to it a few times, I am obsessed with it and I always put it on while walking to class. I think because it's so different than my usual, I'm drawn to it.
10. Best Fake Smile by James Bay
