Everyone has a song that they could connect to a specific point in life. When they hear that song, sometimes they can think back to an aspect of their life because that song was a trigger to that memory, whether it was good or bad. When thinking about this, I wondered for a bit about some songs that I have listened to as time went on. Then I thought, "what if I just randomly shuffled my saved songs on my Spotify account and see if it can connect to a random memory of my life that I put down."
So, I wrote down some general memories that either many people can connect to, and some that can connect to me, and then pulled out my phone and opened the Spotify app. From there, I shuffled my saved songs.
Here are the results.
1. My first day of school
"Perfect" by One Direction. As I look back, was my first day of school perfect as the rest of the year was tiring?
2. Meeting my little sibling
"Strange Love" by Halsey. I mean, I wouldn't call it strange because it's my little brother.
3. My first relationship
"LA Devotee" by Panic! At the Disco. I've never had a relationship, though.
4. My first kiss
"Ghost" by Halsey. Also like the first answer, never had my first kiss.
5. My first breakup
"Emperor's New Clothes" by Panic! At the Disco. I mean, when it happens it can be a song of like "Yo, what's up? I'm up in this business no one can stop me!"
6. Graduating high school
"Waste the Night" by 5 Seconds of Summer. If you count wasting the night waiting for the food we ordered at the restaurant after the graduation ceremony.
7. Getting into college
"You'll Be Back" from "Hamilton". I did tour Bowling Green State University before I applied and I did know that I will be back and here I am today.
8. My first job
"Hurricane" by Halsey. Okay, did my saved Spotify songs like Halsey today? (Boy with Luv featuring her did come out a while ago...) But the first job I had was literally two weeks at a chocolate store during Easter season.
9. My first best friend
"New Year's Day" by Taylor Swift. It's funny because the two Taylor Swift concerts I went to were with her and her sister (my second best friend). I don't talk to them a lot now...
10. My first broken bone
"High Hopes" by Panic! At the Disco. I have nothing for that...
11. My first high school football game doing marching band
"Outro: Wings" by BTS. Okay, our mascot was the Eagles.
12. My first college football game doing marching band
"Colors" by Loona. Go orange and brown.
13. My first Odyssey article
"Stressed Out" by Twenty-One Pilots. I don't remember much of my first article, but it got me to where I am today.
