10 Day You Challenge: Two Songs

Boy, 2 songs - this ought to be hard!  I have been thinking about this one for weeks trying to come up with some song to add that would somehow fit me, a song that's impacted me, a song that has really meant something to me and my life.  I enjoy music, sometimes I don't think I'm worthy of calling myself a true music lovers because I tend to stick to the people/bands I know, and don't often seek out new or independent music. Picking just 2 songs (of all time) seems impossible, even for someone who barely knows any music..

  1. Imagine - by John Lennon.  I love this song - I actually have great love for a lot of Beatles songs and works of any of the Beatles independently.  This particular song has been re-done so many times and it never seems to lose it's impact in the world.  Most song are reflective of a time; this song is reflective of a world at any given time.  It's just an amazing song; always has been, always will be.  A Classic.
  2. Keep Ya Head Up - by Tupac (2Pac).  I'd say Tupac is my second favorite artist, second only to Eminem.  While I could have picked a handful of Em songs to list here I picked this Tupac song because I feel it has an extremely positive message.  If you haven't heard it, go to youtube and take a listen.  People in the 'rap game' tend to have a pretty bad rep when it comes to how they rap about females (don't get me wrong, I know Tupac is in that group as well), but this song really challenges how women are treated and why it happens and encourages everyone to keep on goin', no matter what is bringing you down.  I just really enjoy the song!  The world lost an extremely influential rapper the day Tupac was murdered.
It's seriously hard to just pick 2.

I have no idea how I'm going to answer this, it's so hard to only pick 2!

Hmm.. my two would be...
"What Sarah Said" by Death Cab for Cutie and...

"Tonight, Tonight" by Smashing Pumpkins.

Both for very different reasons, but both bring me back to a special memory (a bad one and a good one).

As a side, "Imagine" is my mom's favorite word, and I love me some Eminem. Eminem reminds me of my days working at DQ. *good times*
