Couldn't really exclude some of my favorite songs of all time because, well, they are easiest for me to remember.
But of some of my favorites these are ones I think describe how I see myself, or at least, at one time, I felt described who I once saw myself as.
Guided by Voices - I am a Scientist https://youtu.be/SfuSs0NfDLo
A somewhat cryptic song that's more metaphorical and poetic than literal, of course. The singer describes himself as fundamentally introspective and maybe a bit self-obsessed at times, among other things, while kind of failing at being introspection. At least, that's my interpretation of it.
Arcade Fire - Wake Uphttps://youtu.be/ZaA0IctGTDw
Probably best described as a song about getting up the eleventh time after being knocked down ten times. I think there was a time in college that maybe I saw this song as a personal anthem of sorts. In the context of the rest of the album it's on, it can be about going on with wanting to live life despite your past having left you an emotional wreck who is ultimately responsible for screwing up so much of your own life. It's a downer, but also uplifting.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
