Manic Monday, by Relient K.
This song was originally a Bangles song, but I love the Relient K version. Even though Mondays are awesome, I like listening to this song because it’s fun and catchy.
Before You I Kneel (A Worker’s Prayer), by Keith and Kristen Getty.
This song helps me to have the right attitude about my work, and in some characteristics that I’m trying to build.
Arrival of the Birds, by the Cinematic Orchestra.
Since I’m playing in two orchestras this semester, of course I have to listen to some movie soundtracks. This has been one of my favorites for a while.
Scarlatti: Sonata in B minor – Allegro – L. 449 K. 27, played by Elizabeth Arenas
This is my current piano piece, so I’m listening to it a lot. I love how it’s minor, but still has a lot energy.
9 to 5, by Ali Caldwell.
This is a great cover, and is awesome for riding in the car.
Heart and Soul by Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, Feat. Lisa Fischer and Gregory Porter.
I’ve been listening to Yo-Yo Ma’s Unaccompanied Cello for a while, but I’m new to his collaborations. This has been my favorite so far.
The Perfect Wisdom of Our God, by Keith and Kristen Getty.
I haven’t listened to this song since last year, but I would love to listen to it more this semester. It helps me to remember how wondrous God is, and promotes thankfulness.
Songbird, by Fleetwood Mac.
My voice teacher recommended this song to me while ago, but I forgot to look it up until this week. It’s a lovely rainy day song.
Our Love is Here to Stay, by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
Ella and Louis never get old.
Mary’s Song (Oh My My My), by Taylor Swift.
I like this song because it’s cute, and it has a happy ending.
Except for Monday, by Lorrie Morgan.
I’ve been listening to this song as long as I can remember. I enjoy it because it’s clever and fun.
