8th Grade Playlist

our youth- sonny alven

our youth is about how we all work during the day and have very little time for fun. But since we are young we want to be outside and not stuck working on in school. To quote the song: No play, all work all day. And on the night time everyone deceived, No time left for starlight. This can be related to my life in the way that most of the week i’m in school which means i have less time to do things that i enjoy.

lost boy- ruth b

in the song the artist is talking about how a lot of the time he feels lost and feels lonely. in the song ruth b sings” I am a lost boy from Neverland. Usually hanging out with Peter Pan and when we’re bored we play in the woods always on the run from captain hook” I feel like this song can be related to a lot of people. the song is talking about how people can feel really lonely and sometimes feel lost.

growing up (sloane’s song)- macklemore & ed sheeran

this collaboration between ed sheeran and macklemore is a song that is dedicated to macklemore’s newborn daughter. In the song he talks about how there are stereotypes of girls and boys and how they should be raised differently. Macklemore then said that it doesn’t matter because it doesnt matter and that everyone should be treated the same. to They say girls shouldn’t be tough. And moms should raise their kids at home. But baby, I know that that isn’t true, Cause your momma’s the toughest person I know
I wanna raise you to be like her and watch you show the world how to do it on your own”

something big- shawn mendes

this song is a great representation about how when i feel like something big will happen. This is basically about how he’s really excited about starting something new. In 8th grade many things had happened and i feel like a lot of exciting things had happened.

we dont talk anymore- charlie puth & selena gomez

this song is talking about losing contact with someone who used to be close with you. in 8th grade with new teams and new friends, it was really easy to lose contact with people that you used to be really close with. to quote the song: “That we don’t talk anymore
We don’t talk anymore, Like we used to do.”

please dont go- joel adams

this song is talking about wishing that someone you love or know wouldn’t move. Many people in our grade are moving away. So towards the end of the year you tend to have feelings of not wanting to let go or thinking about them leaving.

kill em with kindness- selena gomez

this song is a really inspiring and uplifting song, its a great message to send to her fans. people instead of fighting back when people are mean they should jusat be nice and kind. To quote her song: “The world can be a nasty place, You know it, I know it, yeah. We don’t have to fall from grace. Put down the weapons you fight with and kill ’em with kindness
