Best Songs to Relax/Reminisce to - Part 3

 Part 3 of the list is here! Time for more songs!

1. This Side of Paradise by Coyote Theory

If you're lonely, come be lonely with me.

2. Sleep on the Floor by The Lumineers

The artistry of this video is what hooked me in, but the story of the video is what made this song incredibly memorable for me. A comment in this video captured the essence of the story in one chilling line: you're always one decision away from a completely different life.

3. Holocene by Bon Iver

I heard this in the tear-jerking ending of The Judge. I hope I find contentment someday too.

4. Celebrity Skin by Hole

Enola Holmes and Captain Marvel! That is all.

5. Stubborn Love by The Lumineers

Another song from The Lumineers that tugs at your heart.

6. Your Universe by Rico Blanco

This song is a Philippine-made classic.

7. Kwentuhan by Sugarfree

It's in Filipino so most readers of this blog probably won't understand this one. The lyrics in this song remind me of deep drunk conversations that last until sunrise.

8. Both Sides Now by Judy Collins

A song that played on my saddest days.

9. Circle of Life by JYOCHO

This song reminds me of cold mornings and coffee like most JYOCHO songs.

10. You Know My Name by Chris Cornell

I don't like the James Bond movies but this song makes me happy for some reason. I think it's because the video reminds me of my poker-playing days.

11. Heaven by The Walkmen

This song played in the series finale of How I Met Your Mother. It invokes feelings of nostalgia for... the present. Listen to it and you'll know what I mean.
