The soundtrack of my life

It has been a couple of years since I have last chatted about music on Ella Was Here. And I really miss it! Music is a big part of my life. I mean, I know I can’t sing, or dance, or play an instrument properly but I feel so lost whenever I don’t have my music with me.

It has always been my biggest comfort (along with books of course). And I hope you will not only discover some great new songs but that it will provide you some comfort as well! There is a mixture of everything in here, sad & happy songs, but mostly Indie, Pop and some Folk music as that is what I tend to listen to the most.

This playlist has been years in the making. As there are some songs I never grew tired of, songs that have started to mean a lot to me throughout the years. This has become the soundtrack of my life.

 

Put your headphones on

& let the music fill your heart

“And there’s a place that I’ve dreamed of where I can free my mind, I hear the sounds of the season & lose all sense of time”

 

I made a playlist on Youtube years ago, you’ll be able to find most of these songs on there. I tend to add to the playlist every so often, so if you check back regularly, you’ll keep on discovering new songs. However, I do recommend checking these songs out one by one as there is something truly special about discovering a new song for the first time.

Do tell me if you’d like to see more music posts on Ella Was Here!

Love Ella
