My song choice for this week is “Go Your Own Way” by Lissie. I first heard this song on the trailer for Nicholas Sparks’ new novel-turned-film Safe Haven, starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel. I instantly fell in love with this track. I love the mysterious sound and Lissie’s unique voice adds to the drama of the song. As a fan of the Safe Haven novel, I feel this song is a perfect tone for the movie. And, as I anxiously wait for the films release in February, I will just continue to listen to this song on repeat to hold me over.
This week, I recommend you listen to DJ Earworm’s “United States of Pop 2012.” Each year, this incredible DJ pieces together snippets from each of the top songs of the year for a catchy remix (that makes for great workout or pump-up music). This year, the mashup includes: Call Me Maybe, What Makes You Beautiful, Lights, and more!
