My 2016 Soundtrack For Life

My 2016 Soundtrack For Life

As I've mentioned before on this blog, music is a big part of my life.  Each year music marks various emotional states that I was in... from happy, to sad, to thoughtful, to silly, and everything in between and beyond.  It also links me to particular places and times in the past year, it makes me think of certain people, it was a band I got to see play live, or it was just music that made me happy and want to dance around my house or get out a good cry that needed to be had.

Whatever the reason for it in my life, there are always songs I'll link to those moments.  This is the soundtrack to my life 2016 (though the songs are from a variety of years, themselves).  It's been a roller coaster of a year, but I think the final song on this list sums up how I feel right now, and it's not a bad place to be... "I am lost and found."
