~.:Music is life:.~
Well, ASMR is life. But music is life, too. I am incredibly proud of my music taste and my SoundCloud (hint, hint). But, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite songs!
I like a mix of both lighthearted, upbeat songs and deep, dark songs. To coincide with the theme of ASMR however, I have compiled a list of all of my go-to feel-good songs that I hope fill your heart with content as much as they have done so for me- and maybe even perhaps become a favorite song for you too?!
This one is a no-brainer. If you’ve been following my channel/my life then you might’ve stumbled across a visual podcast I created in Spring 2015. It had been exactly a year since my university and friends had “discovered” my ASMR channel. I think I’ve touched upon the aftermath of that experience on my channel but I’m ashamed to say that I felt as though it broke me.
I’ll link the video I made for this journalism class I took abroad.
P.S. I got an A on the project.
I stumbled across this song before I moved to Texas. I’m attracted to songs with lots of fun, quirky sounds like water-drip sounds and acoustic drum beats. I also love that the song is called “zZz” and the vocal sample sings, “Like a lullaby”
This one is an oldie but a goodie. I heard this song first in a car commercial in high school, Shazam-ed it and it soon became one of my most-played songs on iTunes. I find it upbeat and inspiring and hope you do too.
Yep, this one is a lil different than the others on this list. To me, it sounds a bit sadder but my mind goes a little crazy around 2:19 when it slows down and picks up. Almost as if the song is saying, “Just keep swimming.” The introduction of the bass shortly after leads to a satisfying end.
Okay. I am sharing this song on this blog but I was hesitant to originally do so. This is one of my FAVORITE SONGS of all time. I’m a sucker for quirky Jersey-club-type songs. The higher the BPM the higher my heart-rate! I love the subtle harp and guitar sound, the lyrics and even the strategically-placed bed squeaks here and there.
This is a recent addition to the list. Draper is very-much-so an electronic artist and this song is the epitome of electronic music. Its lightheartedness and good-vibes are uplifting and fun. It’s just a dependable feel-good song TBH.
I stumbled across this song in a friend of mine’s “Favorites” and was insulted he never directly shared the song with me because I love it so much. That is all.
So… funny story about this song. I was in the car with my mom and was checking my YouTube channel email and a fellow from Australia had written to me. I’m not going to put the whole email in here but here’s a lil chunk from it:
The track is probably one of the most “uplifting” or “pretty” songs I have done, Which reminds me of you in a way, So when it came to naming the track, “Lily” seemed appropriate. I watched your “What Is ASMR” video and it really pisses me off that people give you shit, You literally saved my life.
I can not truly express how much you have helped my, You truly are an amazing person, And I thank you so so much.
He sent me this a month or two after the whole university ordeal and receiving it meant the world to me and still does.
Last, but certainly not least, is a tropical-house-esque song by Autograf. I recently missed them when they were in Texas because I went home for the Fourth of July but this remix of Lorde’s song “Team” rocks my socks off.
