The weekend is here and this week we have a special Saturday edition of the Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day. This one is inspired by songs that are chill-inducing and breathtaking to the ears. All 5 of these songs should be turned up to LOUD, and sound the best in the early morning, or around the time you can see stars in the night sky. They also sound great driving through downtown LA a few minutes before midnight, the street and building lights dancing patterns on the windshield glass, almost moving to the beat of each of these songs.
Song 1 is Dido’s hit single, “Here With Me”. This song vividly reminds me of living in Salt Lake City, and all the wonder, and all the heartache, that happened in the almost year I lived there. Next is “Ceremony”, my favorite New Order song. This year I got to see New Order live for the first time and was so excited to hear this song played live. “23” by Blonde Redhead is the 3rd track. This one holds significant memories inside of me, tinged with the sting of regret. “Keep Breathing” by Ingrid Michaelson and “Never Leave Your Heart Alone” by Butterfly Boucher are both inspired by my epic binge watch of Grey’s Anatomy that I am doing (just started season 4!) – these are both songs that stood out to me recently during season 3.
So, are you ready to Press Play now? What song do you like the best out of today’s Top 5?

Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day – 9/9/17
1. “Here With Me” by Dido
“I don’t want to call my friends,
they might wake me from this dream.
And, I can’t leave this bed,
risk forgetting all that’s been.”
2. “Ceremony” by New Order
“This is why events unnerve me,
they find it all,
a different story.”
3. “23” by Blonde Redhead
I see a chance.
if you change the name of love.”

“All we can do is keep breathing.”
