some of my favourite songs

i made this for day 54 of the #100happydays challenge (i'll probably post something more about that later...) and it took me, no joke, 21 hours. do you know how hard it was for me to narrow my favourite songs down? originally, i had planned to do 16 so you could at least read the titles. yeah, that was impossible. and this list is no where near comprehensive. i love music. enough said about that.
here are the 64 i ended up with (after painstakingly reducing it from 103. it hurt me to do it too.) in no particular order... (as pictured, but that order doesn't mean anything ranking wise. i just tried to group like pieces together.)

dear screaming - brackets
rob pattinson - it's all on you
bobby long - this strange love
we the kings feat. demi lovato - we'll be a dream
my chemical romance - i'm not okay (i promise)

also, i should maybe mention i used a lot of my favourite artists and went with one song from each.

various songs are considered my favourites for various reasons. sometimes it's the lyrics, sometimes the music, sometimes the vocal harmonies. and sometimes it's more the memories attached to them.
