The new year is here and that means new goals and new beginnings, so I thought I'd put together a little playlist of songs about starting over or starting fresh. I'd love to hear your suggestions as well! Happy New Year everyone!
1. The Kinks - "Better Things"
You know you love this song! Its evergreen message of hope can make even the most hardened soul all mushy inside. There are few better soundtracks to pressing on in the wake of woe :)
2. John Lennon - "(Just Like) Starting Over"
In one of the last songs of his career, he celebrates his love and marriage with Yoko Ono and the anticipated fresh start for his career. The song is all about looking towards the future and seeing all of the possibilities!
3. Bob Dylan - "New Morning"
Because there is nothing like new love to make the world seem lush again! The version I attached is a cover by Darren Criss & Chuck Criss.
4. The Byrds - "Turn Turn Turn"
"A time to gain, a time to lose, A time for love, a time for hate, A time for peace, I swear it's not too late!" What better time than right now?
5. Bright Eyes - "First Day of My Life"
One of my favorite songs - ever. Much like Bob Dylan's track, this is about new love and the new life it brings.
