Top 3 Right Now: Alisa’s Top 3 Songs on Freegal

This week we’re featuring a top 3 songs list from Alisa, our friendly teen services guru at our Sultan community library.

Here’s Alisa’s smiling face while she and her son awaited the start of A Wrinkle in Time.

Take it away, Alisa!

“Well, I have to admit that it has never been easy for me picking any top three ‘favorites.’ It took me a while to come up with these top 3 songs. I love them all and they are great to listen to, and they help lift my spirits. I can also download them to my device for free using the library’s Freegal music service.

I’ll start out with ‘What’s Up,’ a song by 4 Non Blondes from the album “Bigger, Better, Faster, More!” What I love about this song is how it makes me feel when I have any moments where I’m feeling down or stressed. For me, listening to this song in my car or in the shower, especially the chorus, really helps improve my mood. In Freegal, the song is found on the album ‘All Time Rock, Vol. 3.’

A couple of months ago, there was a viral video featuring a group of moms in the UK with their kids with down syndrome singing ‘A Thousand Years.’ This video came out a few days before World Down Syndrome Day on March 21, and the moms wanted ‘to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is’ and how they ‘wouldn’t change a thing.’ Their video was viewed over 4 million times within 3 months, too! This song originally was sung by Christina Perri on the original motion picture soundtrack album of the film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1. The lyrics are very beautiful and with the message from this special group of moms make this song even more beautiful. I searched the song in Freegal to download and found this song in the album ‘Songs from New Movies & Cult Classics.’ You can download this beautiful song and other popular songs from the movies from Freegal

Last but not least ‘Humble and Kind’ written by Lori Mckenna, sung by Tim McGraw. This song won the award for best country song at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. This song was introduced to me by a co-worker a couple of months ago. I had asked my co-worker about her favorite songs and Humble and Kind was one of them. We searched for more information on this song and found out that this song has its own hashtag #StayHumbleAndKind with the intention to encourage people to share their acts of kindness stories to other. You can download the song sung by Lori McKenna who here and the 2016 CMT Music Awards’s Video of the Year Spanish version by Tim McGraw here. Tim McGraw also created an illustrated book version of this song, which adds another wonderful dimension to its meaning.”

Thanks for the excellent suggestions, Alisa!

Stay tuned next week, when Chelsea from our new Lakewood Smokey Point community library will give us a list of her Top 3 songs to roadtrip to!
