2019 In Song

Winter Bird – Aurora

All I need is to remember
How it was to feel alive

On a Good Day – Oceanlab

Been talking to myself forever, yeah
And how I wish I knew me better, yeah
Still sitting on a shelf and never
Never seen the sun shine brighter
And it feels like me
On a good day

Erupt – Be The Bear 

Find me a way and I’ll go
Meet me on the mountain top
Find me a way and I’ll grow

Don’t Wait – Laura Brehm

Don’t let life be waiting at a standstill
You cannot afford to let the dark control you
Don’t let hope fade faster than you mean to
There is always a way to a place you haven’t seen yet

Nova (Shine a Light on Me) – VNV Nation

I dreamt the world, with my eyes open
But time moved on and then, new worlds begin again
Oh my heart, in this universe so vast
No moment was made to last, so light the fire in me

Asylums for the Feeling feat. Leila Adu – Silent Poets

We are here for you
We are here for you
Don’t suffer alone
Tell us

I Love You – Sarah McLachlan

Oh, and every time I’m close to you
There’s too much I can’t say
And you just walk away

Ravens – Lisbeth Scott, Paul Schwartz

For there were ravens circling all around
Ravens screaming ’til the joy was drowned

Insomnia – Faithless

I can’t get no sleep
I can’t get no sleep
I can’t get no sleep

Save Yourself – Stabbing Westward

I know your life is empty
And you hate to face this world alone
So you’re searching for an angel
Someone who can make you whole

Ruler – Goldhouse, Be The Bear

I’ll be my ruler
I’ll decide my future

New Scene feat. Ofelia – Felix Cartal

I’ll be the best escape of the in between
I’ll be the…
first step to a brand new scene
All I wanted was more…

How Many Fools – Lisbeth Scott, Paul Schwartz

So that I might see the truth that lives
Inside your heart and
Never be deceived again
Beguiled by smoky visions
Of a love I thought I’d seen
How many fools I’ve been…
How many fools…

Policy of Truth – Depeche Mode

It’s too late to change events
It’s time to face the consequence
For delivering the proof
In the policy of truth

I Grieve – Peter Gabriel

Let it out and move on
Missing what’s gone
They say life carries on
They say life carries on and on and on

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life – Monty Python

Life’s a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true
You’ll see it’s all a show
Keep ’em laughin’ as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

Blossom – Kerli

While my roots dig deeper inside
And my leaves stay bundled up tight
I felt my face get bigger than life
Not only did I survive…
I learned to blossom

Made Of feat. Jonathan Johansson – Music Super Circus

No one can control me ’cause this what I’m made of,
You can never break me, this is what I’m made of…

Titanium feat. Sia – David Guetta

You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, I am titanium

My completed list of music to represent my journey through 2019. The fact that it’s 19 songs was a happy coincidence. A bit of melodrama, a bit of maudlin, a bit of uplifting – and just a whiff of snarky humor courtesy of Monty Python.
