Songs to Make You Feel Like a Main Character in The Movie Of Your Life

opening

When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary doesn’t come to me, tbh. I’m more of a DIY kind of gal but I do eventually manage to reach the zen moment of Let it Be mindset. How does she do that, you may or may not wonder! Well, I’m gonna tell you anyway – I turn my music up and put the rest of the world on mute for a few minutes – it’s all that it takes, believe me. Now, what matters the most is it can’t be just any song. It has to be the song. How do you know that it’s the song? Easy!

 

  1. Do you feel strong emotions overcoming your body when listening to it?
  2. Do you feel like quiting your day job in order to fulfill your childhood dreams?
  3. Can you picture your life as a movie and hear that song as a sountrack to all the crucial scenes?

 

If the answer to all of the above is YES then you know the song is as right as rain.

 

 

Until you find your personalized playlist of the songs (it takes time and it has to be spontaneous), here’s my list of songs that make me feel like I’m the wo(man); It’s going to be a happy end eventually. Songs are divided by the part of the movie they would most likely be featured in, so here we go, follow the links (they open in new tab;)) and enjoy!
