The song that helped me cope after going No Contact

Something about this hit song from 2013 and early 2014 just makes me feel so good. It give off a lot of positive energy for me.

Right after I went No Contact with my MN ex in February, my son ranked this #1 for the year 2013 on his Youtube radio show, Radio Recall. I could see why he liked it so much. It quickly became one of my favorites too and from February through the time I began this blog in September, it actually helped me feel…well, safe and sound.

I know this song has been criticized for sounding like a commercial jingle (and I don’t like too much current pop), but I don’t care if it’s “bad” music and for this I make an exception. I also love the history of dance sequence shown in the video.

I’m not sure–maybe it’s the almost subliminal “hold your ground” in the backup chorus that made me feel so strong and courageous whenever I’d hear this.

“Ten Feet Tall”

I’m not too huge a fan of most current pop music and EDM, but occasionally I hear a song I really like. Having kids in their early 20s does keep me up on current music. I really liked what I heard of the first song used in my son’s dance comp entry, and found out it’s this song called “Ten Feet Tall” by Afrojack and Wrabel. There’s nothing all that unique about the song, but I think it’s very soulful and he has an incredible voice.
