Best Songs to Relax/Reminisce to - Part 2

Posting the second part of this music list early because I've been feeling a little bit better today. Turns out listening to all my favorite songs helps. You can check part one of this list here.

1. The Fall by Rhye


Ooh, make love to me... one more time, before you go away. A sad but relaxing tune I started listening to about seven or eight years ago,

2.  Mr. Blue by Catherine Feeny



I feel like they wrote this song for someone going through what I've been going through.

3. The Night We Met by Lord Huron



Right person, wrong time. A haunting four-word story for this song.

4. I Miss You by Blink-182



I used to hang out in internet cafes and this was the first song I'd play. The music video is mesmerizing.

5. Blinding Lights by The Weeknd



The city's cold and empty. No one's around to judge me. This song captured the feeling of 2020 even though it was released in 2019. It made the year so much more bearable. This song should have won a Grammy. 

6. Reach for the Stars by Major Lazer



I learned about Hanlon's Razor today. It's a principle that states, "never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity." As funny as it sounds, it indirectly made me realize I should stop hating myself. I'm not a bad person, I'm just an incredibly, ridiculously, and hilariously stupid person that sabotages himself. With that in mind, my current dream is to become a better person for myself and the people I love. This motivating song is just the right soundtrack.

7. Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi



Drake was still an extra in music videos when this song was released. Loved it when this blasted on speakers during college parties. More than a decade later and we're still in pursuit of happiness.

8. Surrender by Angels & Airwaves



One of the songs I listen to when I needed motivation in my college days.

9. At Least It Was Here by The 88



Community's intro has happy beats and sad vibes. Captures the bittersweet nature of the show itself.

10. Hey Brother by Avicii



I love this song only because my kid brother and I sing this song to each other. Heeeey brotherrrr.


11. Slow Dancing in the Dark by Joji



One of Filthy Frank's sadboi songs lol.

That's all for now. I should start working again. I'll post the third part of the list after the book and the DERE EXE remake are released.
